Bio-identical Hormones will be Banned if the FDA Has Its Way

We have an emergency to stop the bill that the FDA supports to ban prescriptions for bio-identical hormones.

The information that follows is from a newsletter by the Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center.

Dear Friends,
Your right to take bio-identical hormones is under attack! The potential Senatorial action on bio-identical hormones may be described as Grinch-like! If you, or your loved ones take bio-identical hormones in any of the 50 states and would like to continue being able to take bio-identical hormones, you need to call your senator today! This is not a joke!

The following letter is from Women's International Pharmacy! Please forward this message to everybody you know who may care about Americans having the right to take healthy hormones! Even if you don't currently take bio-identicals, please be compassionate and be another voice speaking up for those who do or may have to in the near future. Your life and your voice does make a difference!

The following is the Women's International Pharmacy letter to prescribing doctors that I adapted for patients:

Women's International Pharmacy July 29, 2013

" Your ability to prescribe (in your case to be able to receive) bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and other compounded medications is under attack in the U.S. Senate. Call your Senators today and ask them to oppose S.959, a bill that will soon be on the Senate floor that could give the FDA the authority to eliminate your ability to prescribe (take) compounded BHRT.

S.959 gives the FDA, an agency that has been openly hostile to bio-identical hormones, unprecedented and unchecked control over compounded BHRT. It allows them to ban estriol, one of the most widely used bio-identical hormones, and allows them to declare compounded BHRT to be illegal copies of drug company hormones.

Call your Senators NOW so they can oppose S.959. You can find the phone numbers in the State-by-State listing below and tell them:

"I am a BHRT patient in your State of ______. Please oppose S.959 so that I can continue taking compounded bio-identical hormone replacement therapy because it is extremely important to my health, and to the health of millions of Americans! Thank you. "

After your calls are made, please register and send an email to your Senators as well. It takes only a couple of extra minutes and every message is important! You can find additional information at MyMedsMatter.com."
