What is Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)? It refers to the use of identical hormones on a molecular level with endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Dov Rand refers to them as natural hormone therapy. However, he says they aren’t safe according to most medical specialties and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There is no evidence that they are safer and more efficient than hormones used in traditional hormone therapy.
The term “natural” means in the product’s name mean they come from animal or plant sources. Nevertheless, these products still need treatment commercially to become bioidentical. Traditional hormones like Estrace, Vivell-Dot, and Climara are approved by FDA to contain Prometrium and estrogens, a naturally occurring hormone derived from plants. Although they are classified as unsafe by Dr. Dov Rand and other professionals, they are advantageous over traditional hormone therapy in that they are custom-tailored for you and are produced in doses.
Dr. Johanan Dov Rand couples up by saying that whereas there is no scientific backing that these hormones are advantageous, some women may benefit from non-standard forms of hormones in compounded bioidentical hormone preparations.
