The following is from an email we recieved:Recently, Dr. Erika Schwartz, author of several books including “The 30-Day Natural Hormone Plan” sent an important message to her e-mail community entitled “Your Right to Choose Bioidentical Hormones Is Under Attack!”Currently, the FDA is reviewing a proposal submitted by Wyeth, a pharmaceutical company trying to ban the production of bioidentical hormones. This is ridiculous! Unlike synthetic hormones such as Premarin or Prempro (both manufactured by Wyeth) which have been proven to be unsafe, bioidentical hormones are far safer in individualized doses. In addition, numerous studies have shown that they are effective at relieving menopausal symptoms and providing the estrogen that many women need to feel their best in the second half of life. (Note: not all women need hormones. But for those who do, bioidentical hormones are the best way to go—and I have recommended them for many years with great results.)Dr. Erika has made it easy for your voice to be heard. Simply go to (link) and complete a brief, electronic form. Please take two minutes to support this important effort, so you can and others can get the benefit of bioidentical hormones for years to come.Warmly,Christiane Northrup, M.D.
