The Real Truth About Bioidentical Hormones

with podcast guest

Dr. Daved Rosensweet


Dr. Rosensweet is the medical director of the Institute of Bioidentical Medicine and the co-chairman of the Coalition to Protect Bioidentical Hormones. He graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School in 1968 and has been in private holistic medical practice since 1971. Dr. Rosensweet lectures widely, teaching menopause medicine to medical professionals in live seminars and online.

In this episode, we talk about the protective effects of hormone therapy, the difference between traditional/synthetic and bioidentical hormones, why compounding pharmacists are so important, symptoms that you may need hormone therapy, what to look for in a health care provider, and more.

Dr. Rosensweet is an absolute wealth of knowledge, and I learned so much about hormone replacement therapy from this conversation. I have no doubt you’ll have huge takeaways as well!
