T.S. Wiley is continuing the fight for our rights as consumers.
She will make the rounds of all the health insurance companies in
2009, delivering the message: the absolute need for coverage to
be extended to biomimetic hormone therapy, to support women’s
and men’s health. Some health insurance companies have
stopped covering biomimetics; Aetna dropped its coverage in
October of 2007. It’s time they acknowledge the crucial role
biomimetics play in preventive health management!

We’re working on ways of recycling the syringes used in the Protocol, and you can help.
Please let us know what the laws and regulations about recycling these syringes are in
your area. We’ll pass it along in this newsletter to let you know how you can make a

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.

The Rhythmic Orchestration of Biomimetics– I

It is the natural “biomimetic” rhythm that is missing from all other hormone
replacement therapies–
People have become accustomed to talking about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for
menopause. The term “bio-identical” has become a catch all phrase for anything that is not a synthetic
hormone.. We are here to set the record straight.

In order for hormones to be called bio-identical they need to be biomimetic. There is a two-fold requirement.

1) They must mimic the hormones found in the body so they must be made of natural plant sources
to match the chemical structure of hormones produced naturally by the human body.

2.) They must mimic the natural biological process, which has a rhythm.
Therefore, plant-derived hormones can be called bio-identical only if they are dosed in a biomimetic fashion –
in a rhythm – and more specifically, in the multi-phasic rhythm that mimics the body’s natural process.
Therefore, biomimetic is the scientifically accurate term and the Wiley Protocol is the scientifically accurate

The Wiley Protocol®. Biomimetic Hormone Restoration Therapy (BHRT) is derived from plant sources,
and mimic in the body’s natural undulating, or wave-like, rhythms of the hormone blood levels in a normal
menstrual cycle. It is this natural rhythm that is missing from all other hormone replacement therapies.

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 and lobby on behalf of a bill to be
introduced to Congress stating that banning of estriol is “not in the public interest.” The web address is
the home page of the International Association of Compounding Pharmacists.


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
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 2008 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 answer to the
