Now the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate each have
resolutions calling for FDA to reverse its policy on estriol; however not all Senators and Representatives are
aware of FDA’s new policy. On Wednesday, Sept. 10, the Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

urged their elected members of Congress to sign on to their respective Congressional resolution. Call your

Planetarium Corner
In Roman mythology the Moon was represented by Diana, the hunter goddess. The Moon is the earth's companion
satellite, though some astrologers believe that it approaches being a planet in its own right. The Moon is large
enough for its gravity to affect the Earth, stabilizing its orbit and producing the regular ebb and flow of the tides.
The Moon is familiar to us for its different phases, waxing and waning in appearance in an unchanging cycle. The
Moon orbits the earth in about 28 days, spending a fleeting 2.33 days in each of the signs of the zodiac. The lunar
day syncs up with its orbit around Earth in such a manner that the same side of the moon always faces the Earth
and the other side, known as the "dark side of the moon" faces towards space.

We believe that Quality Control starts with you, the Consumer. Here at the Wiley Protocol Newsletter we
invite you to share your views and make your voice heard. In every newsletter we will ask you to vote for
your favorite Wiley Protocol Doctor, and the best Wiley Protocol Pharmacy.
Send us an email with your votes and stay tuned!


Dr. Courtney Paige Ridley is the doctor favorite this quarter. The pharmacist favorite is Mark Filosi of
Family Care Pharmacy in Plant City, Florida. Dr. Ridley writes “I think the Wiley Protocol will change the
way we care for women. I am tickled to be a part of the revolution and to be on this growing team of
providers whose focus is the care and nurturing of women. I would encourage all women to discuss this
with their doctors and if they won’t listen to seek out those of us who will.”

Why Women Need the Wiley Protocol™
Testosterone is often called the hormone of desire, but it essentially plays
a key role in libido, energy, and immune function in both men and
women. It is a steroid, androgen hormone and the primary male sex
hormone that turns boys into sexually functional men, and it also builds
! their muscles. Produced by the adrenal gland, the testes in men and the
ovaries in women, testosterone is also very important to women.
Testosterone is the precursor to estrogen and a girl produces increased amounts of this hormone in
puberty in order to become a woman.
As a women ages her libido and desire for sex often diminishes. The replacement of estrogen alone
may not correct loss of muscle tone, absent sex drive, or general lack of mental function. Testosterone
can plays a key role in libido, energy, and immune function in women. Produced by the adrenal gland
and ovaries, testosterone, over the course of the menstrual cycle, has a rhythm in women. Testosterone
levels are highest for a woman in the early twenties, but by the time she approaches and enters
menopause there may be a testosterone deficiency. Your doctor can give you blood tests to diagnose
your testosterone levels. Cont. on Page 6

Deb: Benefits for me of Wiley protocol: clear thinking, calm mood, no lower back pain, no
"creepy crawly" feelings in both legs, no foot and ankle pain which kept me awake at night,
reduced pain in my L arm and neck (from long ago auto accident), no sharp pains to my ovaries
and uterus at random, improved digestion, no fatigue, better planning abilities, more able to get
out and take long walks, happier.

Take action: The FDA took action 01/09/2008 on the behalf of Wyeth, a major
pharmaceuticals manufacturer, to prohibit the use of estriol in compounded medicines.
An easy way to take action is to go to

that banning of estriol is “not in the public interest.” The web address is the home page

Women have always gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to heath care research.
Most studies on major health issues like heart disease and diabetes were performed on men
and the results were just assumed to be relevant to women. They weren’t. The much-touted
Women’s Health Initiative was ill-conceived and at best, misguided. It studied women over
65 years-old on synthetic drugs with hormone-like effects. All they proved was that these
drugs, Premarin and PremPro, are unsafe for post-menopausal women with multiple previous
disease states.

It’s pretty apparent to any of us paying attention that the government isn’t terribly interested
in women’s health or our comfort levels on any issue. The last time we were between this
rock and a hard place, we, together, took control. It was 1840, in London for Elizabeth Cady
Stanton, and again in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York (read article). It was 1851 in Akron,
Ohio for Sojourner Truth. It was 1860 in New York for Susan B. Anthony. It was 1915 in
New York for Alice Paul, 1935 for Mary McLeod Bethune, 1963 for Betty Freidan, 1971 for
Gloria Steinem. Maybe it will be 2009 for us. It could be.

IT’S TIME TO DO IT AGAIN. TS Wiley has addressed the Senate on the validity of
Compounded Hormones, acquired not one, but two IRB numbers sanctioning studies on the
Wiley Protocol and is in discussion with representatives of the upcoming continuation of the
WHI starting this fall.

NOW ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS PAY FOR IT. If you’d like to contribute to finding an
