Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can experience hormone imbalances. When your hormones are not in balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you might develop persistent health problems.
Hormones are involved in many different functions within our bodies, ranging from the regulation of our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, 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 may include hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression among others.
Men can go through a form of “male menopause” commonly called andropause, a condition which involves a decrease 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 highly skilled in the use of natural (bio-identical) hormone replacement therapy for both men and women. Bio-identical hormones are made by making use of custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, rather than commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones contain molecules that are biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
Why should you use bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones perform exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may result in fewer side effects. Traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones 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?
When 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 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 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 needs and create a customized treatment plan to match 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.
