Our mission here at the Natural Balance Clinic is to introduce the most natural nutrition and supplements to balance the body without using medication. We believe that medication, for the most part, is not the answer for common illnesses. We believe that most diseases and illnesses happen because of the lack of healing nutrients in common food choices. We believe that medications are temporary relief of more in depth medical problems that need serious nutritional attention. We believe that healing should start from inside the body and unless we begin from inside the body, we never can treat outside symptoms because outside body pain and symptoms arise from serious internal imbalance which arise from toxins that we constantly abuse our body with, calling them “food”.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy

Our clinic offers menopausal symptom relief with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. After menopause an abrupt decline in female hormones in the body cause the body to undergo a “shock” which is experienced as hot flashes, night sweats, mood fluctuations, irritability, as well as more milder symptoms like lack of control of urination and leakage of urination in the middle of the night, decrease in libido and lack or interruption of sleep that in a long run would have adverse effect on the immune system and functioning of other organs including thyroid.

There are many different ways to treat this hormone imbalance. In the past, synthetic hormones such as Premarin, which is taken from horse urine, was widely used but the correlation with breast cancer make more clinicians stay away from synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones are not taken from horse urine but they have chemical structures identical to your own hormones from ovaries. The best management in our office is to use night time bio-identical progesterone as only modality for hormone therapy. For a very small percentage of women we may add bio-identical estrogen (a very small clear color patch) in addition to progesterone. We do not offer pellet implants because we believe that a big dose of hormone being implanted in your body can cause more harm than benefit. And everybody should be aware that even bio-identical hormone therapy, if overdosed, may cause cancer as well. We offer saliva tests to evaluate hormone imbalances as well.

Meet Dr. Lida Aghdam

Internal Medicine

I was born into a highly educated family. My aunts and uncles were deeply involved in science, medicine and nutrition and along with my mother, they have inspired me tremendously. My mother had a bachelor’s degree in English but she was always studying nutrition books and doing research on the benefits of every fruit and vegetable.

She fed us the best organic foods combined with fish oil, ginger, cinnamon, turnips, vinegar, garlic, turmeric, etc. I majored in math and physics in high school. Then completed my midwifery degree from Guillan University in Iran and moved to the United States in November 1988. I received a bachelor degree in chemistry and biology.
