Why Choose The Wiley Protocol?
The Wiley Protocol is the only BHRT that has been developed under the scrutiny of a practicing Oncologist. Over the last ten years, clinical data and anecdotal statistics have been gathered from thousands of women ages 19-90 who are on The Wiley Protocol, supporting a profile of safety and efficacy.
Additionally, The Wiley Protocol and its multi-phasic physiologic dosing have been part of an ongoing oncological study that is the first of its kind to track and quantify outcomes of BHRT in women with breast cancer based on the dosing patterns and administration of BHRT. The principal objective of the study is to examine clinical outcomes and quality of life indicators of patients receiving BHRT at various primary care provider practices.
What is bioidentical?
The term refers to plant-derived molecules that are identical to the ones produced in our own bodies and come from organic sources. Synthetic hormone molecules are lab engineered versions that are similar, yet not naturally occurring in our anatomy.
There’s always the risk of adverse effects that go along with introducing synthetic chemicals into your natural system. Conversely, by using bioidentical hormones, your body is better able to recognize and respond to treatment, and adverse effects are rare.
What is biomimetic?
This term means to mimic nature, which is exactly what The Wiley Protocol aims to do. At no point does your body maintain static amounts of any hormone. Your biological systems are constantly changing and responding to one another in a synchronic environment.
The levels of hormone in The Wiley Protocol vary throughout 28-day cycles. The purpose of dosing in a rhythm as opposed to statically (the same dose every time) is to better mimic the hormone levels the body naturally produces, as well as to maintain hormone receptor response through cyclical reset. It’s a no-brainer that health and quality of life dwindle as we age, and so do hormone levels and function. So why not restore hormones to healthier levels like those of youth if quality of life and wellbeing are the ultimate goals?
What is transdermal?
This term refers to any preparation made to pass through skin, as opposed to being taken orally, intravenously, or via a suppository or pellet. The Wiley Protocol is applied on the skin in a neutral base cream to prevent hormones from metabolizing and filtering out through the liver as they would if taken orally. In an effort to better quantify the effect of individual application amounts, the protocol works best in base cream made of coconut oil as opposed to gels, patches, aerosols, etc. due to the transmission of lipid molecule to lipid molecule (aka fat in the cream to fat in your skin).
