Do you remember our newsletter
last year detailing how Wyeth Pharmaceuticals was attempting to stop
compounding pharmacists from prescribing natural progesterone (diosgenin)
after their profits fell by more than 57% from $2.07 billion in 2003 to
$800 million in 2004 (after the WHI study had to be stopped)?
Well, now they have gone after
centers like ours making complaints to the Federal Trade Commission
(FTC). The FTC's position backed by the big pharmaceutical companies is
that Dr. John Lee, M.D.'s studies were not scientific and did not rise to
the standard of FDA and National Institutes of Health studies, and that
our claims about natural progesterone are false, unfair, deceptive,
misleading advertising in violation of the law..
what Dr. Helen Pensanti M.D. has to say about this. Read on to how the study
This is an attempt to force women into taking
unsafe proven cancer causing synthetic hormones using
your tax dollar to harass natural hormone suppliers. We here at the Women's
Menopause Health Center refuse to take away your choice of a healthy
alternative to Premarin, Prempro and the other dangerous drugs. We are
taking a stand against this heavy handed attempt to destroy competition. We
are going to fight for your choice of a healthy way to get through menopause
comfortably and safely.
(Ed. note: This was from our newsletter last year. The
continued harassment by the FTC has caused us to discontinue our wonderful
product. Do not be forced
into taking something that can kill you. You may purchase safe
progesterone cream at your local health food store, or find it a lot less
expensively on line at places like ebay and yahoo stores.
Do not let these heavy handed tactics destroy your health!)

What's the Best Way to Make a Hormone? Naturally!
Hormones used in WHI study not identical to human body's own.
Women who are taking or considering hormone treatments received
another shock this week when the National Institutes of Health
announced that it has halted the estrogen-only phase of the Women's
Health Initiative (WHI) study.
What's a Woman to Do?
Does this mean that women should refuse all types of hormone therapy?
Not at all, says hormone specialist Nisha Jackson, Ph.D., a women's
practitioner in Medford, Ore. There are safe, effective alternatives
to conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
"Women need to educate themselves about how hormonal balance can
seriously affect their lives, and in turn how their lifestyle affects
their hormone levels," says Jackson. "They also need to know the
difference between bioidentical hormones that exactly match those
produced by the human body and synthetic hormones, such as those used
in this study, that don't."
Not Your Mama's Estrogen.
The trademarked pharmaceutical products used in the WHI study are not
biologically identical to human hormones and are therefore more likely
to cause unwanted side effects. Bioidentical, or natural, hormones are
made by a compounding pharmacy to match exactly the body's own
hormones and allow choices for dosing, potency and application method
(including capsules, creams and patches).
Your Personal Hormone Profile.
In her practice Jackson stresses individualized testing. Controlled
scientific experiments such as the WHI study use a "one size fits all"
approach, giving the same dosage to everyone without regard for each
woman's unique needs.
"The key to safe, successful treatment is in getting your hormone
levels tested first," says Jackson. "Then you and your healthcare
provider can determine the best way to get back in balance." That
often includes making some changes in diet and lifestyle in addition
to taking natural hormone supplements.
