Newsletter August: 2007

August holds treasure to many festivals. One of them, the moon festival, is celebrated by many cultures, including one that happened in the year 1368 in China. The Africans hold what is known as the Yam Festival in the beginning of August at the end of the rainy season, while the Indians of South American said all humans were made of "moon blood" in the beginning.

We have all heard of Under the August Moon, right? That’s why this issue is devoted to the Wiley Protocol lunar calendar.

We’d love to hear from you so please feel free to write to us with any of your questions, thoughts or concerns at kgabriel@thewileyprotocol.com.

Under the August Moon: Lunar Versus Personal Calendars

Newsletter August: 2007 August holds treasure to many festivals. One of them, the moon festival, is

Stories about the moon can be seen in every culture from folklore when the Chinese women established a lunar calendar 2000 years ago to Creedence Clearwater Revival's 1969 hit, "Bad Moon Rising."

"Lunacy" has its roots in the Latin word for moon?

Historically, the earliest calendars were lunar calendars, based on the time interval from one new moon to the next—a so-called lunation. In colder countries, the concept of the year was determined by the seasons, specifically by the end of winter. But in warmer countries, where the seasons are less pronounced, the Moon became the basic unit for time reckoning; an old Jewish book says that “the Moon was created for the counting of the days.”

It has been shown that calendar consciousness first developed in women because their natural body rhythms corresponded to observations of the moon. Upon closer study, it turns out that 28 days is not the true average of the natural female cycle. In ancient mythologies it is clearly related to the full moon, but in the modern world the female cycle is disturbed above all by the existence of artificial lights and the use of artificial hormones on a scale that has left no woman unaffected. The many moon-mimicking light sources, probably including TV and computer screens, have perturbed the female cycle and generally shortened it. It is however obvious from these disturbances that it is the light of the moon, in other words the full moon cycle of 29.5 days, that the female body is responding to.

Menstrual cycles respond to many subtle cues, and one of these is the ongoing presence of other women. Women who work closely together, or who live together, can set off each other's menstrual cycles. It happens via pheromones- chemical substances that are secreted by the skin. Once their nasal receptors pick up the scent, the pheromones stimulate their endocrine systems, which then drive their menstrual cycles into a similar pattern.

The Wiley Protocol uses the lunar rhythm for women who cannot give accurate coordinates for the first day of their last menstrual cycles. Why? Because of the

evidence for photoperiodicity controlling estrogen reception along with the obligate melatonin response. Melatonin blocks estrogen receptors. As the light increases with the waxing moon, melatonin secretion diminishes, allowing estrogen full rein. That’s why the full moon is always the peak of the follicular phase or day 12 counting backwards from that day 12 to Day 1.

On the Wiley Protocol Lunar Cycle, it must always be a count backwards from the full moon of Day 12 in any month. This system accounts for the normal duration variation where some women are as short as 25 days or as long as 32. It also facilitates blood work records and refills in an organized manner once a month for the doctor’s staff.

If however a patient can accurately site the first day of their last menstrual period, establishing Day 1 of their first Wiley cycle should be designated to their Personal Calendar.

Effects of Estrogen on Dendritic Cells: Research by Dr. Susan Kovats

Studies have documented differences in the incidence and severity of autoimmune disease as well as immunity to infections based on gender that are partly the result of the action of sex hormones on immune cells. Dr. Susan Kovats and her lab studies the estrogen-mediated regulation of the development and function of dendritic cells, a class of immune cells that are critical for the initiation of immunity to pathogens and tumors.

According to Kovats, sex biases in autoimmunity and infection suggest that steroid sex hormones directly modulate the function of immune cells expressing estrogen receptors (ER). Antigen specific T cell responses depend on the function of dendritic cells (DC) to initiate innate and adaptive immunity. DC regulate protective immunity to pathogen proteins or tumor antigens, but also may elicit detrimental autoimmune responses. A primary focus of my lab has been the study of the role of estrogen in DC differentiation and function. Other projects focus on the role of antigen presenting cells during the autoimmune diseases rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.

In her research, Kovats found that estrogen promotes the differentiation of functional DC from undifferentiated myeloid progenitors in murine bone marrow. Estrogen acting via ER is required for the development of a subset of DC exhibiting features of epidermal Langerhans cells. She also studied the effects of selective ER modulators (SERM) such as tamoxifen, used for breast cancer prevention, which may act as ER agonists or antagonists depending on the target cell type. Her lab found that inclusion of tamoxifen reduces DC numbers during in vitro differentiation, and those DC that do develop are hyporesponsive to activation signals, suggesting that systemic SERM treatment might alter DC function in response to inflammatory stimuli.

Current studies involve definition of estrogen-responsive DC progenitors in bone marrow, which will facilitate future studies to distinguish among the potential effects of estrogen on survival, proliferation or induction of a specific

differentiation program in DC precursors. Secondly, ongoing studies are testing the hypothesis that variable systemic estrogen levels or exposure to SERM result

in differences in DC number or function in vivo. These studies are being done in a model system in which DC mediated antigen presentation and T cell activation in vivo may be monitored after systemic estrogen response manipulation. The long-term goals of these studies are to define the molecular mechanisms by which estrogen promotes DC differentiation from bone marrow progenitors, and to understand how variable ER-mediated responses to estrogen or SERM modulate antigen specific immune responses in vivo. Ultimately we will apply the information gained from such studies to murine models of autoimmunity. Read more

Hormone Loss Tied to Sexual Dysfunction

Women who have particularly low levels of the hormone DHEA during menopause may be more likely to have sexual dysfunction, a new study suggests.

According to T.S. Wiley, the loss of the estrogen peak is also the loss of the LH spike that drives the production of testosterone from the ovaries mid-cycle. The only testosterone a dysrhythmic woman has is from the conversion from DHEA, so, this study’s findings are no surprise.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania found that among more than 300 women they followed for 3 years, sexual dysfunction became more common as women progressed through menopause. Postmenopausal women were more than twice as likely as premenopausal women to report problems like lack of interest in sex, pain or difficulty reaching orgasm.But there was also evidence that other factors contributed to sexual dysfunction, including the women's levels of DHEA , or dehydroepiandrosterone. Women with relatively low blood levels of the hormone were 59 percent more likely to report sexual problems than those with high levels.

Dr. Clarisa R. Gracia and colleagues report their findings in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.

DHEA is a hormone produced mainly by the adrenal gland that acts as a precursor to testosterone and estrogen. The body's DHEA production peaks in young adulthood and gradually declines with age; because of this, supplements of synthetic DHEA are widely marketed as an anti-aging panacea.

However, the current findings do not mean that women with sexual dysfunction should turn to the supplements, as there's not yet any evidence that they'd help, according to the study authors.

"A randomized controlled trial assessing the safety and efficacy of ( DHEA ) is needed to support its use for the treatment of sexual dysfunction," Gracia and colleagues write.

The study included 311 women who were between the ages of 35 and 47 at the outset. Once a year, the researchers took blood samples from the women to measure various hormone concentrations. They also questioned the women about their health, menstrual cycles and sex lives.

Patient Testimonial

Four years ago in September, 2003, I began the Wiley Protocol. I had been post-menopausal for nearly eight years (no periods) and found myself rapidly declining. For ten years I had been on static, low-dose HRT but it wasn’t keeping up with the speed of my demise. My face produced a new, permanent wrinkle almost daily, I lost my libido, and my vaginal environment was so dry and the skin so thin, I gave up on sex. No amount of external lubrication would ameliorate my discomfort. I suffered from memory loss, both short term and long term, and fought low, to no vitality. It was an effort to make it through my day. I felt “ill” all waking hours and slept fitfully at night. Self-employed, single and not rich, I was on the road to poverty and an artless death.

I read “Sex, Lies and Menopause” in a weekend. I devoured the information recognizing myself on most of the pages and called my doctor on Monday morning telling him I wanted to get started on the protocol. He saw me, prescribed it and within the first month, I had a roaring period! I was delighted.

The first three months I experienced random anxiety, an old familiar feeling from childhood. I figured it was cellular recall and reawakening and went through it without a problem. It was uncomfortable, but not the

Overall, Gracia's team found, one-third of the women had some degree of sexual dysfunction by the end of the 3-year study period.

Women with relatively low DHEA levels were at greater risk, as were those with anxiety symptoms and those who lacked a regular sex partner. Women who had children younger than 18 living with them were also more likely to report sexual problems.

The findings, according to Gracia's team, confirm that sexual dysfunction becomes more common as women move through menopause, and that hormones may be one of several factors that play a role. This doesn’t mean, however, that DHEA replacement is the answer. Unfortunately, DHEA converts to either estrogen or testosterone via enzymes for cleavage which are controlled by insulin or the lack of it in insulin resistance.

least bit frightening. I understood it.

The beauty of it all was within that first month my memory returned. My original, sharp, focused, fast mind was back! I was energized, feeling sexy, had boobs again and I got my hands wrapped around my life that was now acting like a bucking bronco! I noticed the daily wrinkling in my skin had stopped. Stopped! Within three months, the wrinkles and lines that had burrowed in during the last year disappeared. My skin now is prettier, smoother and more moist than it was at fifty-five. I am fifty-nine and most people put me at forty-eight.
