Menopause Symptoms Clifton NJ
Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you might develop chronic health problems.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, including the regulation of our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances tend to be most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain and more.
Men also can experience a form of “male menopause” also known as andropause, a condition that occurs with a decrease 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 educated in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are created by using custom-compounded hormones derived from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones contain molecules that are exactly biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why should you use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may result in fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones has been associated with an increased 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 enhance your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel healthy and young 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 specific situation and create a personalized treatment plan to match 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.
