Menopause Symptoms Wayne NJ
Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can suffer from hormone imbalances. When your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you may develop chronic health problems.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, from regulating our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances are most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms could include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain among others.
Men also can undergo a form of “male menopause” known as andropause, a condition which involves a reduction 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 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 rather than 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, 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 be able to 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 enhance your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel healthy and young again.Ultimately, 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 requirements. Bio-identical hormones can be made in a variety of strengths, dosages, and forms, such as capsules, creams, gels, sublingual tablets, and suppositories.
