Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you may develop persistent health concerns.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, including regulating our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances tend to be most commonly associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease. Symptoms may include hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men can experience a kind of “male menopause” commonly called andropause, a condition which involves 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 educated in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are created using custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, rather than 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 instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact have fewer side effects. The use of synthetic hormones in traditional hormone replacement therapy may 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 respond at its best to nutrition and exercise. But natural hormone replacement can help restore the proper hormonal balancein your body and put an end to the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, and allow you to feel healthy and young again.In fact, they can also help prevent many of the diseases associated with aging.
Are you affected by 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.
