Dr. Dov Rand is a Bioidentical Hormone Specialist who currently operates in West Orange, New Jersey. He has a board certification in the fields of repetitive and anti-aging medicine and functional medicine. Dr. Dov Rand received his medical training at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in New York, and currently practices as a doctor of physical medicine, a doctor of rehabilitation, and a psychiatrist.
Dr. Dov Rand often implements bioidentical hormones in his treatments, especially his anti-aging procedures. Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones that are created by compound pharmacists and are derived from natural sources like soy. These natural bioidentical hormones are completely identical to the naturally occurring hormones found in the human body.
Due to the compatible structure of the molecules in bioidentical hormones, they are accepted by the body when used in procedures. Because they are natural, the body does not see them as a foreign threat and implements them in healing processes says Dr. Dov.
There is another type of hormone currently in use called synthetic hormones. These hormones are mechanically altered on a molecular level, changing their entire structure. Synthetic hormones are not natural and thus are not compatible with the human body (Releasefact). Often when they are used, synthetic hormones are rejected partly or completely by the body. The rejection of synthetic hormones is just one of the many problems that can occur when they are used in anti-aging treatments.
Big pharmaceutical companies take advantage of synthetic hormones, despite their issues, because they are able to patent the chemicals. Bioidentical hormones are derived completely from natural sources, and so like other occurrences of nature, they cannot be patented (https://www.newjerseybio-identicaldoctor.com).
Because patenting medical treatments is necessary to profit from them, big pharmaceutical companies tend to overlook bioidentical hormones in favor of patented synthetic hormones. The patent process is one of the biggest separators between bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones.
