Natural Hormone Replacement
Both women and men can experience hormone imbalances. When your hormones are out of balance (that is…too much of one and not enough of the other hormone), you might develop persistent health issues.
Within our bodies, hormones have many roles, ranging from regulating our immune system to influencing growth, metabolism, and fertility. Among women, hormone imbalances tend to be most often associated with menopause, when menstruation ends and estrogen and progesterone levels decrease. Symptoms can include hot flashes, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, insomnia, anxiety, or depression among others.
Men can undergo 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 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 from natural sources, instead of 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 rather than synthetic hormones?
Bioidentical hormones function exactly the same as synthetic ones, but they may in fact 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?
If 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 help to eliminate the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Bio-identical hormones will increase your energy and vitality, allowing you to feel young and healthy again.In fact, 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 personalized 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.
