    Just in case anyone remains unaware that our rights to alternative healthcare are in jeopardy, see below. I know that many of us are so unwell that it can seem a big effort even to sign a petition online, but please, please take a few minutes to do this not just for the sake of all of us who rely on bioidentical hormones (and that may include you one day if it doesn't already), but for the future of alternative healthcare in America.

    Action Alert


    PLEASE EMAIL THE FDA TODAY TO STOP WYETH FROM SHUTTING DOWN THE COMPOUNDING INDUSTRY.
    Your comments due to the FDA by April 4.

    Deep entanglements of media and business are evidenced in tonight’s “The New Medicine” documentary, to air at 9 p.m. EST on PBS. While corporate sponsor Wyeth (NYSE:WYE) benefits through association with the values at the heart of this extraordinary production, behind the scenes the company is attempting to severely undermine natural health through an FDA Citizen’s Petition to eliminate natural health options for women, specifically bioidentical hormones. The duplicity has been noted by physicians and women’s groups around the nation who are actively organizing to derail this attempt to limit competition at the expense of women’s health.

    LEARN MORE NOW on this subject from 13 leaders in the natural health movement—including doctors, advocacy organizations, patient advocates, a compounding scientist, a former Congressman, the leader of a major compounding industry association, a leading D.C. regulatory lawyer and a retired Major General of the U.S. Army, who talks about the importance of freedom. Hear all points of view from experts who are close to the ground working selflessly in the interest of patients’ health and for democracy in health care in this country.

    Some quotes:

    “It’s ridiculous of a pharmaceutical company to file a Citizen’s Petition to quash their competition at a time when people are rightfully demanding freedom in health care choices and more and more problems are being experienced with pharmaceutical drugs”—from a retired Congressman

    “Wyeth’s attempt to eliminate the safest options for women presents a major national health issue”—a leading New York City Women’s Health Physician.

    “Never before has there been a time of greater urgency and concern where patients and physicans need to come together to protect their rights”—an expert in pharmacy science for five decades

    PLEASE TAKE ACTION NOW! Here are 2 steps you can take that together— cumulatively among all of us—can make a big difference in preserving our rights to choose our care, doctor’s rights to prescribe what in their judgment is the best care and that will spare women from having to buy their compounded hormones from other countries.

    1. READ The 13 Leaders “Uprising Re. Natural Hormones”—email to everyone you know so the facts are understood on this issue.

    2. CONTACT THE FDA at http://www.citizens.org/preserve-access-to-bhrt and tell them to stop Wyeth now.

    Much gratitude to all.
    Leadership Team at Citizens
