We love your pithy comments and outrageous criticism of doctors' drugs and SARS (WDDTY vol 14 no 2). But what have you got against progesterone?

Dr John Lee's work is among the best-documented and understandable approaches to dealing with hormone issues. We suggest that there is still confusion between wild yam creams and progesterone creams. Chang et al.'s double-blind placebo-controlled trial on the absorption of progesterone showed it was absorbed in significant quantities and did get to the breast tissue. It also demonstrated change in the numbers of apoptotic [fragmented] cells (Fertil Sterl, 1995; 63: 785-91).

We run a natural hormone clinic, and it is hard work when that old 1998 Lancet paper is aired again. They measured serum levels of progesterone. But the progesterone in cream form is absorbed by and carried largely in the red cells, not the serum portion of blood. The more reliable testing is by saliva levels, of which there is a huge database from Aaron Labs (contact Dr Zava).

We look forward to joining the thousands on June 15th in London, and thank you for all your hard work. - Drs P. Layman and J. Schreiber, Verwood, Dorset
