Menopause Symptoms Hawthorne NJ
Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can suffer from hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you could develop chronic health problems.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, including the regulation of our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. Among 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, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain among others.
Men can sometimes experience a type 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 trained 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 consist of 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 result in fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones 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 will not respond at its best to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore the proper hormonal balancein your body 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 young and healthy again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases related to aging.
