“I have been practicing BHRT for the past four years when my own hormones started to decline rapidly. I began to research options for myself. I, like many of my patients, began googling bio-identical hormone therapy. Started to read Dr. John Lee’s books, Dr. Uzzi Reiss’s books. Found other by reading their index pages of where they got their information from. Somehow I stumbled upon T. S. Wiley and read her book, Sex, Lies, and Menopause. I knew instantly that cyclic hormone therapy was the answer to try. It made sense to me. That’s how we replace other hormones when they are gone, so why wouldn’t we replace out cyclic/rhythmic hormones cyclically/rhythmically as well?
In less than one year I was off all my “symptom” medication. I no longer needed anti anxiety medication, sleeping medication, heart palpitation medication, and thyroid medication. I had energy again. I slept again. My skin and hair felt great again. My weight was easy to maintain. I started immediately offering it to my patients and saw the same results.
I, like other prescribers, noticed that some patients had problems with absorption. I found that the starting dose of the Wiley hormones wasn’t enough for most of my patients (including myself) and would have to titrate them up after clinical evaluation and lab testing. When I got them cycling between 150 pg/ml to 500 pg/ml on average, they did great! I also find that really finding out how m y patients were applying the creams mattered as well. Were they applying it to the upper arms, inner thighs, forgetting to apply the evening dose, missing doses all together, etc? And it isn’t perfect for everyone, but even those it wasn’t acting “perfect” with felt better using the cyclic/rhythmic dosing than not being on the hormones at all and would refuse to stop using them.”
Here is a recent email from one of my patients, typical of the type I get from my patients all the time.
I just had to say THANK YOU for everything you’ve done for me. I was out with a group of friends this weekend that I haven’t seen in some time. All throughout the dinner each one of the couples randomly kept gushing as to how wonderful I look. It was almost embarrassing after a while. And it’s all because of you! I told them about you and the hormone replacement creams….but I don’t think they were listening. They just said that I had found the ‘fountain of youth’. I have lost a few more pounds which helps too. But seriously, THANKS YOU from the bottom of my heart. You have given me back the confidence I had lost.
“I know I will never stop using the Wiley Protocol, it has literally improved my life in every possible way and have given me my life back to me. It is my mission to change the way the Standard of Care is treating women in regards to hormone deficiency. Menopause is not temporary. It is permanent for as long as you live after you stop producing estradiol and progesterone. You should have the knowledge and choice to replace those vital hormones as you age.”
