Menopause Symptoms Haledon NJ
Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you may develop chronic health concerns.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, including the regulation of our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances are 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 go through a kind of “male menopause” called andropause, a condition which involves 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 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 include molecules that are biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform the same as synthetic ones, but they may have 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, especially if these conditions run in your family.
What can bio-identical hormones do for me?
If your hormones are out of balance, your body won’t respond optimally to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore your body’s chemistry and help to eliminate the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel young and healthy again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases related to aging.
Are you experiencing symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your specific situation and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your body’s unique requirements. Bio-identical hormones can be made in a variety of strengths, dosages, and forms, such as capsules, creams, gels, sublingual tablets, and suppositories.
