Book Review – Bioidentical Hormones 101 by Jeffrey Dach, MD

Written by Carol Petersen, RPh, CNP – Women’s International Pharmacy


Dr. Jeffrey Dach is an active blogger and has gathered his information into a wonderful book called Bioidentical Hormones 101. Usually I cringe when I see an article or listen to a presentation with someone claiming to have the truth about bioidentical hormones. But if you are looking for someone who is really digging into the truth, you can find it here.

Dr. Dach negates the statement that “There isn’t any research involving bioidentical hormones” by providing a long list of references to the contrary, along with plenty of documentation on his patient cases and his personal observations.

This book is for people who want to understand the concept of helping the body operate as it was meant to operate, or who want information to begin a dialogue with their practitioner, as well as for practitioners who need resources to confirm or validate their treatment plans. The groundwork is already done.

You may find that this book is not easy to read from cover to cover (although it is very readable), but you will want to add it to your reference shelf for when you want to get “just the facts” about bioidentical hormones and the industry around them.
