Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can experience hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you might develop chronic health concerns.
Hormones play many different roles within our bodies, ranging from the regulation of our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression among others.
Men may go through a form of “male menopause” commonly called andropause, a condition that occurs with a reduction in levels of DHEA and testosterone, two male hormones. This hormonal imbalance can cause 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 made by using custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones contain molecules that are exactly biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may have fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones may 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?
If your hormones are out of balance, your body will not respond at its best to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore the proper hormonal balancein your body and help to eliminate the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will enhance your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel young and healthy again.In fact, they can also help prevent many of the diseases related to aging.
Are you affected by 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.
