Menopause Symptoms Waldwick NJ
Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can experience hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you may develop chronic health problems.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, ranging from 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 may go through a form of “male menopause” commonly called 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 from natural sources, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones consist of molecules that are exactly biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
What’s the advantage of using bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function 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, especially 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 be able to respond optimally 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 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 needs. Bio-identical hormones can be made in a variety of strengths, dosages, and forms, such as capsules, creams, gels, sublingual tablets, and suppositories.
