Natural Hormone Replacement
Men and women can go through hormone imbalances. If your hormones are out of balance (you have too much of one hormone and not enough of another), you may develop chronic health issues.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, from regulating our immune system to impacting growth, metabolism, and fertility. In 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, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, or depression and more.
Men may experience a form of “male menopause” known as andropause, which is when there is 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 produced using custom-compounded hormones from natural sources, instead of commercially-prepared synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones consist of molecules that are biologically identical to your body’s own hormones.
What’s the advantage of using bio-identical hormones rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function 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 will not 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 young and healthy again.In fact, 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 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.
