Dr. Dov Rand’s Anti-Aging Methods
Dr. Dov Rand is using bioidentical hormones to revolutionize the world of anti-aging. Trained at New York’s Albert Einstein Medical Center, Dr. Dov Rand focuses on psychiatry as well as rehabilitation and physical medicine (https://twitter.com/dr_johanan_rand). He has several board certifications, allowing him to practice regenerative medicine, functional medicine, and anti-aging procedures.
Dr. Dov Rand uses bioidentical hormones for a number of reasons. Firstly, they are natural and are derived from natural sources, like soy and yams, by compound pharmacists. The bioidentical hormones are totally identical to the natural hormones produced in the human body, and therefore are the optimal choice for hormone treatments. Bioidentical hormones are a complete molecular match to the body’s natural hormones, and therefore they are easily accepted by the body when used in treatments.
Another type of hormones that are widely used, but seldom effective, are synthetic hormones. These hormones are created by altering hormones at a molecular level, creating an unnatural chemical. These synthetic hormones can be completely ineffective when used, and they can cause a number of problems, or they can be outright rejected by the body.
Synthetic hormones are used because large pharmaceutical companies are able to profit off of them. Because they are created artificially, synthetic hormones can be patented and sold. Bioidentical chemicals, on the other hand, are the result of a natural process, and naturally occurring things cannot be patented.
Synthetic hormones and bioidentical hormones are completely different in this regard, with the former being allowed a patent. Plant-derived bioidentical hormones, even though more effective in most cases, are largely ignored by big pharmaceutical companies. Dr. Dov Rand wants to bring bioidentical hormones into the mainstream.
Dr. Dov Rand is a big believer in medical practices that have proven themselves through rigorous testing. Because of this, he only performs medical treatments that have been peer-reviewed.
