Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you might develop chronic health problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, from regulating our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances tend to be most frequently associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms may include hot flashes, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, depression, fatigue and weight gain among others.
Men also can undergo a type of “male menopause” known as andropause, a condition that occurs with a decrease in levels of DHEA and testosterone, two male hormones. This hormonal imbalance can cause 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 made by using custom-compounded hormones derived 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.
Why use bio-identical hormones instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function the same as synthetic ones, but they may result in fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy 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?
If your hormones are out of balance, your body won’t be able to respond at its best 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, allowing you to feel young and healthy 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 needs and create a customized 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.
