Turn Back the Clock!
As women mature, their body decreases its amount of estrogen, the female hormone. They begin experiencing the debilitating symptoms of menopause: migraines and headaches, decreasing bone density, poor sleep patterns and lack of energy and sex drive.
Women are beginning to realize that living without their hormones is unnecessary at best and miserable and dangerous at worst. The traditional method is to introduce synthetic hormones, but this has led to health problems. According to the FDA, for some women, hormone therapy may increase the chances of blood clots, heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer and gall bladder disease. The risk is greater for women who have had their uterus removed, increasing the risk of getting endometrial cancer.
What if hormone replacement could really imitate youthful hormone levels, not just mask a few symptoms? What if replacing hormones has the potential to alleviate many diseases associated with aging? After all, history has shown that young women aren’t susceptible to glaucoma, cancer and heart disease, to name a few. The main difference between young women and old women is reproductive capacity and the attendant hormones. Medicine bears witness that the majority of women with normal hormones do not have those diseases.
Natural Bio-Identical Hormones and Cycling
Bio-identical hormones can only be truly bio-identical if the hormones for replacement mimic not only those chemically found in the body, but also mimic the natural biological process as well.
New research shines bright light on healthy hormone replacement therapy (HRT), suggesting that women must cycle their hormones and have a menstrual bleed to be truly safe from cardiovascular events. According to a recent Danish study, a combined cyclic regimen with monthly bleeding creates a lower cardiovascular risk for women than continuous-combined estrogen/ progesterone/progestin therapy, which does not cause a menstrual bleed. The study also found that overall there was no increased risk of heart attacks in current users of HRT compared to women who had never taken hormones.
The Wiley Protocol® is a trademarked, patent protocol hormone replacement therapy (HRT) delivery system. It consists of biomimetic estradiol and progesterone in a topical cream preparation — dosed to mimic the natural hormones produced by your body when you were 20 years-old.
The creams and their amounts are designed to vary throughout the 28 day cycle because your youthful hormone levels naturally fluctuate. The Wiley Protocol targets age 20 as a baseline because heart disease and stroke, Type II diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease are not usual concerns for a healthy young individual. Approximately 80% of women with a uterus who have used the WP have had perfectly normal regular menstrual periods every 28 days. It is recommended that women without a uterus use the Wiley Protocol Lunar Calendar™
