Big pharmaceutical companies have long profited off of synthetic hormones. These chemicals, because they are not natural, are often rejected by the naturally occurring hormones produced by the human body. Dr. Dov Rand seeks to do away with synthetic hormones and replace them with natural bioidentical hormones.
Dr. Dove Rand is a graduate of the Albert Einstein Medical Center in New York. He is certified in anti-aging and regenerative medicine as well as functional medicine. At his medical practice in West Orange, New Jersey, he performs psychiatry, physical medicine, and rehabilitation medicine.
Dr. Dov Rand chooses to use bioidentical hormones in his anti-aging treatments. These hormones are created by compound pharmacists who use only natural sources, such as soy. On a molecular level, these naturally derived bioidentical hormones are identical in every way to the naturally occurring hormones found in the human body.
Bioidentical hormones are seamlessly implemented into patients because they are not questioned or rejected by the body (Newjerseyivtherapy). They are natural, and so the body sees them as good hormones and uses them in the healing process.
Synthetic hormones, however, are not natural, and thus are often rejected by the body. These hormones are created in laboratories by chemically altering hormones on a molecular level. They are seen as unnatural by the body and are often rejected and not used for the healing process. Though ineffective, synthetic hormones are used by large pharmaceutical companies because they are patented.
Any product of naturally occurring process are not allowed to be patented, therefore bioidentical hormones are not patentable. Synthetic hormones are not natural and are patentable. This allows pharmaceutical companies to profit off of synthetic hormones, despite their low rate of success.
Dr. Dov Rand uses natural bioidentical hormones in his practices. He is a firm believer in the effectiveness of the scientific process, and because of this he only performs medical treatment that has been reviewed by a board of peers.
