Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can suffer from hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop chronic health concerns.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, ranging from the regulation of our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances tend to be most commonly associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men may undergo a kind of “male menopause” known as andropause, which is when there is a reduction in levels of DHEA and testosterone, two male hormones. This hormonal imbalance may result in sexual dysfunction, muscle weakness, depression, and bone loss.
What are natural hormones?
At Masri Sports Medicine & Wellness, Dr. Sammy Masri is highly skilled in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are produced by using custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones contain molecules that are biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why should you use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact have fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy may actually increase your risk of breast cancer, heart disease, blood clots, or stroke, particularly if these conditions run in your family.
What can bio-identical hormones do for me?
When your hormones are out of balance, your body won’t be able to respond at its best to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore your body’s chemistry and put an end to the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel young and healthy again.In fact, they can also help prevent many of the diseases associated with aging.
Are you experiencing symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your needs and create a customized treatment plan tailored to your body’s unique needs. Bio-identical hormones can be made in a variety of strengths, dosages, and forms, such as capsules, creams, gels, sublingual tablets, and suppositories.
