Expert Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Scottsdale

Every woman goes through menopause, but not every woman needs to suffer through it.

In Scottsdale, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used to alleviate the symptoms of menopause.

Many women begin experiencing the signs of menopause as early as their forties. Dr. Aiden combines hormone replacement therapy with natural medicine, including herbal and nutritional supplementation, to help women in Scottsdale find relief from the discomfort of aging.

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are created to match the hormones produced naturally by the body. Antiaging therapy with bioidentical hormones is generally recommended at the onset of menopause, which is marked by the cessation of menses.

Dr. Aidun uses plant-derived, natural bioidentical hormones. These hormones are created from the plant molecule diosgenin.

As the body ages, hormone production naturally declines. Reduced estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels lead many women to experience changes in their health. Hormone replacement therapy restores hormones to their pre-aging levels, thus reducing the symptoms of menopause.

Symptoms of menopause treated by BHRT include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Migraines or tension headaches
  • Night sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Decreased sexual interest
  • Memory loss
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Vaginal dryness
