Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Fatigue, low sex drive, insomnia, weight gain and other symptoms of menopause, andropause (similar to menopause effects in women), adrenal fatigue and thyroid disorders are not just an inevitable part of getting older. These symptoms are in fact caused by imbalanced hormones of the body.
Many people are finding relief with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), the process by which vital hormones like human growth hormone, estrogen and testosterone are replaced on a prescribed schedule to mimic the body’s natural process.
Bioidentical hormones are natural substances—usually plant-based—that have an identical molecular structure and chemical composition as the hormones naturally produced by your body, and can therefore generate the same physiologic responses as your body’s natural hormones—without the side effects which are common with synthetic hormones.
The human body works at its best when all is well-balanced — and a key component to that is well-balanced hormones.

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, 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
