Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can go through hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of 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, including regulating our immune system to influencing metabolism, growth, and fertility. In women, hormone imbalances are most commonly 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 also can go through a kind of “male menopause” called andropause, a condition which involves a reduction 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 created by 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 instead of synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may have 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, 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 will not respond optimally 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 young and healthy again.Ultimately, they can also help prevent many of the diseases related to aging.
Are you affected by symptoms of menopause or andropause? Dr. Masri can assess your needs 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.
