As a child in Iran, Dr. Sadeghalvad watched her grandmother’s health decline and saw how helpless her mother felt as she tried to help her. She too felt helpless and was determined to learn how to prevent this kind of suffering. The experience played a major role in her decision to pursue a career in medicine. At age 10, her family moved to Canada where her interest in the medical field continued to grow. Dr. Sadeghalvad graduated from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia with a Major in Biochemistry and a Minor in Chemistry. She continued her medical education at Universidad Iberoamericana in the Dominican Republic where she learned about the Latin culture and language. Her Residency in Internal Medicine was completed at the Hospital de La Conception in Puerto Rico where she served as Chief Resident during her final year of training.
Dr. Sadeghalvad is fluent in Farsi, English, and Spanish. She enjoys cooking, traveling, walking by the beach, and learning about new cultures.
Integrative Medicine: a Unique Approach to Hormonal Imbalance
By Dr. Azar Sadeghalvad, MD.
I want to personally welcome you to La Belle Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic of Bellevue, WA, where we make all decisions on “Evidence-Based Medicine” — or the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence — which helps us in determining the best treatment per each patient’s needs. Decisions are reached through extensive research studies and clinical trials.
In my practice, I have encountered so many patients who are unhappy with the symptoms that relate to hormonal imbalance, a medical condition that can be triggered not only from aging, but also from a variety of stress factors.
And who does not have stress today in our current society?
Because of my training in Internal Medicine, however, I have personally chosen to avoid prescribing synthetic hormones. With synthetic Hormones, research has proven the dosage is not proper for just anyone, and of utmost importance to my practice is “DO NO HARM!”
I strongly believe in the power and knowledge of Internal Medicine, and in integrating my Biochemistry major background with my medical knowledge, I understand the complexity of hormonal synthesis and their Steroidogenic Pathways and metabolism. I truly believe I can offer my patients a safe and new approach to hormonal replacement, and replace the specific missing hormone.
At La Belle Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic, I am able to help my patients with chronic symptoms of aging to create better health through bio-identical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT) — based on the specific missing hormone, in the proper amount and with natural hormones.
After all, the human body works at its best when all is well-balanced, and a key component to that is “well-balanced hormones.”
To your health and well-being,
Azar Sadeghalvad, MD
