Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. When your hormones are not in balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you could develop chronic health problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, from the regulation of our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances tend to be most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression among others.
Men can go through a form of “male menopause” also 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 trained in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are created 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 should you use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function 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 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, allowing you to feel healthy and young 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 customized 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.
