In a posting on his practice’s website, Dr. Johanan Rand explained Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Research shows that maintaining a proper balance between the female hormones Estrogen and Progesterone can prevent age-related diseases.

The imbalance that results when Estrogen and Progesterone levels begin to drop leave women susceptible to developing breast and uterine cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis. That is not a complete list. Hormone decline begins at age 35-50.

Bioidentical hormones keep Post-Menopausal women healthier longer. Hormone decline triggers aging. Dr. Rand suggests that women began Bioidentical therapy at a young age. Stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and other memory-related issues can be warded off with Bioidentical Hormones. It can also guard against urinary incontinence and loss of sex drive. Cosmetically, the therapy reduces breast sagging and improves skin tone.

Dr. Rand cautions to never accept synthetic hormones as a suitable substitute for Bioidentical Hormones. Dr. Johanan  Rand cites the difference between the plant-based Bioidentical Hormone “Estradiol” and the synthetic progesterone hormone “Provera” aka “Progestin”. The body accepts Estradiol because it is identical to the hormones the body produces itself. Provera has a litany of side-effects including bloating, increased weight, and decreased libido. It has also been linked to blood clots that lead to heart attack and stroke (Reporterexpert)
