May 2008 Newsletter


Hello Everyone!

Last month I had a wonderful visit to the Canadian North - the home of the oil tar sands project. For many years, huge earth moving machines and intricate processing plants have been extracting oil from sand and creating petroleum products. Now that gasoline prices have reached record levels, companies from around the world are investing in this - the largest oil reserve in the world! There are serious environmental factors of course but until alternatives can be found, oil continues to pour forth from this part of Northern Alberta.
It was quite an experience to witness the energy of the north and the wonderful people there. I am most grateful to Life Force Herbal Healing Center for inviting me to Fort McMurray Alberta.
I admire the courageous people who live in the area amid some extreme weather conditions. People breathe air filled with petroleum fumes, deal with swirling dust and bitter cold. The land is raw but the people are warm and friendly. Life is what you make of it. It doesn't matter where you live - the rugged north or the steamy south. Bloom where you're planted - I have a fun story in this newsletter that really illustrates this point. May is about blooming - growing and blossoming with all the creative gifts that reside within you. Write a book, paint a picture, host a party - branch out, bloom and have fun!

We Did it! Bio-Identical Hormone News!

For the past six months I am sure all of you have responded to pleas to let the FDA know that you you want to have full and complete access to all bio- identical hormones including estriol which they were planning to BAN.
The voice of reason and the voice of women prevailed.
Read on:

U.S. House Resolution Deems FDA's Policy on Estriol "NOT in the PUBLIC INTEREST"
Yesterday, H. Con. Res. 342 was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives opposing the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) decision to restrict Estriol (a form of Estrogen), a compounded hormone preparation used by women to alleviate the symptoms of menopause. The bill counters that the new FDA policy restricting women's access to medications containing estriol "does not serve the public interest" and calls on the FDA to "reverse its policy." The resolution also calls on the need of FDA to "respect the physician-patient relationship" and recognizes that doctors, not the FDA, are in the best position to "determine which medications are appropriate for their patients."

Reps. Mike Ross (D-Ark.), Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.), Sam Farr (D-Calif.), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisc.), Michael Burgess (R-Texas), John Carter (R-Texas) and Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) introduced the resolution in the House of Representatives.
The action was taken after the FDA sent letters to seven pharmacies in January asking them to cease and desist with the use of estriol. This is a HUGE step in the right direction! We applaud the thousands who have written letters to your members of Congress on this issue and encourage you to keep writing.

"Estriol helps women manage the menopause process and has been proven safe and effective. FDA's decision is not predicated on evidence, therefore questioning their interference in the states' jurisdiction over drug compounding," said Bruce Roberts, RPh, executive vice president and CEO of the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA).

Since FDA announced its estriol policy in January, the agency has since attempted to allay the concerns of thousands of women by stating that doctors may prescribe compounded hormones containing estriol if they complete an Investigational New Drug Application (IND). Unfortunately, this process is unworkable.

For decades, doctors have prescribed compounded hormones containing estriol to women suffering from the painful symptoms of menopause. The International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) estimates that hundreds of thousands of women are prescribed these drugs today. FDA's policy would force these women to discontinue the hormone treatments that their doctors have determined is appropriate for them.

Pharmaceutical giant Wyeth petitioned the FDA in October 2005 to prohibit compounding pharmacists from preparing hormones that contain estriol on the grounds that doing so posed a "serious threat to public health." At the same time, though, Wyeth was marketing drugs containing estriol as "an ideal therapy" across Europe.

Wyeth's petition generated more than 70,000 responses, the overwhelming majority of which from women and doctors opposed to Wyeth's request. Unfortunately, FDA fulfilled Wyeth's request earlier this year when it announced that it would "halt" the compounding of compounded hormones containing estriol.

Compounded hormones containing estriol are lawfully prescribed, prepared and dispensed in all 50 states and their use is accepted by the United States Pharmacopeia and the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board. The FDA has acknowledged that it is unaware of any adverse events associated with the use of these drugs. Estriol is a component of a multiple sclerosis treatment undergoing Phase II clinical trials; in compounded form it is prescribed by doctors to treat both multiple sclerosis and symptoms of menopause.

Pharmacy compounding is a long-standing, state- regulated and medically vital practice. Millions of Americans have unique health needs that off-the-shelf prescription medications cannot meet. For them, customized, compounded medications -- prescribed or ordered by licensed physicians and mixed safely by trained, licensed compounding pharmacists -- are the only way to better health.

Caroline's reading for me was life changing. In just an hour without knowing anything about me and just listening to me talk about my son, she nailed our issues. He no longer has asthma attacks and I have lost weight and have regained my mental clarity which had been decining for the past few years. This woman has the rare gift of intuition and I am most grateful.

Would You Like To Write a Book?

I love it when friends of mine or anyone with a good story to tell writes a book.
I am just delighted to announce that Louise Hay's personal assistant Shelley Anderson has released her new book Dealing With Diva's. It's all about the life of a personal assistant and in fact the book is perfect for anyone in the service industry. I adore Shelley, she's lively and fun and she's done a great job on this book. A sense of humour will get you through anything - let Shelley show you how!

Here's an excerpt:
Be A L.A.R.K.
A is for Ask and Accept
The first step in the L.A.R.K. method is to ask for and accept that you deserve what you want.
This step is more difficult for most people than the listening exercise. Asking for what we want from our bosses (or lovers, or families, or mechanics) is a big step for many of us. Another step in the process is the realization that we actually deserve to ask for something and receive it. Talking with fellow personal assistants, I've found that they find this step to be very difficult to do. Asking for help, or asking for something like a day off from work or a raise, is torture to them.
If we pick our moments and don't rehash the past or act out of resentment or resignation, we can ask for what we want and actually get it. I've done it, and the ceiling didn't cave in on top of me. Like anything else, it just takes practice. We've spent so many years practicing being disappointed that it just takes a few times of being told yes before we start to believe we can have what we want. It really is that simple. Here's an example:

Assistant: "I'd like to talk to you about scheduling my vacation time this summer."
Boss: "I'm too busy right now. Just send me an e-mail."
Assistant: "I'll follow up with an e-mail so we have it in writing. And I'd like to confirm with you now that taking the week of July 4th off is all right."
Boss: "I'm going to be on Leno that week, right?"
Assistant: "Yes, Leno's people have confirmed, and I've already got your travel arrangements made. I need to make my own reservations so can you give me an okay on my days off?"
Boss: "As long as my stuff is set, that's fine."
Assistant: "Great! I'll follow up with you by e-mail and make sure you have everything you need before I leave the office on the third."

Using the L.A.R.K method, we're retraining our mind to accept the new thoughts as true. I knew an assistant who literally had to stand up every day to eat her lunch. She didn't have a real lunch break! She sorted the daily mail in mail slots (she worked on a large estate), and the only time she was "allowed" to eat was for that half hour while she sorted the mail. Asking to have a lunch break was too scary a thought for her, so she never did. I think she was in that job for five years before she finally left - that's a lot of lunches. Was it worth it?
For more on the LARK method, read and enjoy Dealing With Divas!


I Saw This On 60 Minutes

A few months ago I saw a fascinating segment on CBS 60 Minutes about a cancer therapy that really made sense to me. This month Dr Joe Mercola has featured this discovery in his newsletter.
