In her latest book, AGELESS, Suzanne Somers applauds C.W. (Randy) Randolph Jr., M.D., R.Ph. for his caring and his willingness to do “the most incredible work to thwart the onslaught of the environment and the misunderstood passage of hormone loss.”
Dr. Randolph and Ms. Somers agree that hormone replacement is really pretty simple, but unfortunately, the medical community still has trouble grasping it.
"We have sound medical science and clinical evidence to support the safety and efficacy of bio-identical, or natural, hormone replacement." said Randolph.
“The real issue is the universities that publish research supporting bio-identical hormone replacement do not have the resources to compete with the big marketing budgets of pharmaceutical companies that manufacture synthetic hormone therapies such as Wyeth’s Prempro or Premarin,” Randolph says. “It was this concern about the lack of medical education that fostered my decision to write my first book, FROM HORMONE HELL TO HORMONE WELL, and to found The Natural Hormone Institute of America in 2004. It is sort of a David and Goliath phenomenon but the momentum is picking up and progress is being made.”
Like Ms. Somers, Dr. Randolph has been doing his part to get the word out to both the healthcare consumer and their physicians. His gynecological practice based in Jacksonville, Florida has an active patient base of over ten thousand patients on bio-identical hormone therapies. Dr. Randolph also reaches and responds to several thousand hormonally-challenged women and men via national speaking tours and, also, through his website.
Dr. Randolph sees that educating more physicians is the real crux. He frequently is a key note speaker at continuing medical education programs across the nation and is actually scheduled to present in a two-day symposium later this month in Orlando. “Once doctors understand the science behind bio-identical hormone replacement, it is like a light bulb goes off in their head,” Randolph reports.
“They tell me: ‘Now I see how the big drug companies have twisted and manipulated the idea of hormone replacement to capitalize on a business opportunity.’ I tell them that: ‘Good doctors should never knowingly capitalize on or compromise their patients’ healthcare. Once a physician becomes educated on the science behind bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, they are in the position to really care for their patients who need safe and effective hormone replacement.’”
