Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can suffer from hormone imbalances. If your hormones are out of balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you may develop persistent health concerns.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, ranging from regulating our immune system to impacting metabolism, growth, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances are most frequently 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 go through 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 can cause 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 made by using custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones include 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 perform the same as synthetic ones, but they may have 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 won’t be able to respond optimally to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore your body’s chemistry 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. In the long-term, 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 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.
