"The Big Lie about Estrogen"

By Shelly Black

In the Service of Greed - Business as usual!

Currently 75,000 pregnant mares are given the opportunity to aid in the production of the totally unnecessary prescription drug, Premarin. This estrogen drug, which is the most lucrative drug in our country today, is prescribed for women in menopause. It is manufactured from the urine of lactating mares. Here's how:

The pregnant mares stand tethered in darkened stalls, catheterized for the collection of their estrogen-rich urine. The helpless mares cannot lie down or even turn around. Their legs become raw from the rubber bags that are fitted to them. Once the foal is born, it is sacrificed to slaughter for human consumption in other countries. The mares are re-impregnated and forced to endure the torture over and over again for the rest of their days!

To the pharmaceutical industry this means money. The suffering of the urine donors in no way justifies the expense of finding a better way of collecting the urine.

Public Awareness - In the Spotlight

The sort of perversion described above can take place only in the darkness of public ignorance. We can save horses through educating the thousands of women who take the drug, as to how Premarin is produced, the suffering that is involved, and about the alternative: natural progesterone. Doctors also need to be educated about the benefits of natural progesterone to balance estrogen. Bear in mind, however, that natural products which cut too deeply into pharmaceutical profits will frequently be subjected to orchestrated ridicule and, if that doesn't work, legal action.

Since the pharmaceutical companies supply one-third of all the funding for the medical schools in our country, doctors are taught to use synthetic drugs. Progesterone is a natural product, which the pharmaceutical companies cannot patent; thus they will never promote.

We can make a difference by showing women everywhere that they have a choice! By using progesterone instead of estrogen, we can not only save horses' lives, but yours as well! Estrogen dominance may be associated with cancer of the breasts, cervix, uterus and ovaries. Promoted by the pharmaceutical industry as the treatment of choice for menopause symptoms, most women are put on estrogen when they don't even need it!! Progesterone prevents these forms of cancer, plus prostate cancer in men and osteoporosis, too! Progesterone alleviates many PMS symptoms (and other hormone imbalances associated with: weight gain, depression, mood swings, heavy/and or irregular periods, thyroid disorders, endometriosis, infertility, migraines, hot flashes, acne, muscle cramps, night sweats, water retention, fibrocystic breast disease, bone fragility and osteoporosis, decreased energy, etc...)

Progesterone is synthesized from wild yams, not animals. It is natural, safe, effective and clinically proven. Exercise your right of choice by using Progesterone.

Dear Friends,

We need your help! I am working with Jolene's Horse Rescue, a non-profit organization, who is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of horses who would otherwise be bound for slaughter (for human consumption) or Premarin farms.

We are contacting you to ask for your assistance. We would like to work together with you, to promote public awareness into the atrocities involved in the harvesting and prescription of Premarin (Estrogen), by running an informational editorial. We have been educating the public on this subject for years, but it wasn't until recently that we have been able to supply the public with a readily available solution to the problem!

Through public awareness, and the availability of an effective alternative to Premarin, we can decrease the demand. Only then will it no longer be a lucrative business to torture these magnificent animals!

We are also interested in obtaining mailing lists of persons whom you would consider these issues to be of concern. We can provide a tax-deductible receipt for your charitable contribution, including but not limited to advertising, mailing lists, etc... If you know of a particular person or group who would find this of interest and/or is in a position to help us get this information to a wider public - please let us know and we will be happy to contact them directly.

The current lease for Jolene's Ranch is going to expire on 10/1/99 and we are desperately trying to purchase the property. Jolene's is a non-profit organization and the qualification for a loan mandates a large down payment. We are working hard at multiple fundraisers, one of which is the sale of progesterone cream. (see additional information enclosed). A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product will directly benefit Jolene's Horse Rescue. Other fundraisers in the works: our Annual Celebrity Auction (May 8 1999), The Santa Anita Oak Tree Charity Days, sponsorship programs, garage sales, sales of our own coloring books and of course cash donations, etc...

Your assistance in this matter can and will make a difference! We can literally save thousands of horses and peoples lives! We appreciate your help.

Thank you,
Shelly Black
Fundraiser Volunteer

What is Natural Progesterone Cream?

Natural Progesterone cream is a natural hormone synthesized from Mexican wild yams. We have the only natural progesterone cream on the market today with Activin. Activin is an all natural, high potency grape seed extract proven to be a powerful antioxidant and a free radical scavenger. (Estrogen causes free radical damage). Activin is a necessary complement to our progesterone formula, which was manufactured to Dr. John R. Lee's specifications. Dr. Lee is the author of: "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause" and "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Pre-Menopause". Dr. Lee is a leading authority and advocate of progesterone therapy.

Who should use Progesterone Cream?

Those women who suffer from PMS with: mood swings, cramping, bloating, acne, insomnia, decreased sex drive, decreased energy, weight gain, depression, water retention, heavy and/or irregular periods found relief according to Dr. Lee, by using a natural progesterone cream.

Other indications that you should be using progesterone cream are Estrogen Dominance and menopausal symptoms such as: hot flashes, night sweats, depression, weight gain, water retention, bone fragility and osteoporosis. After menopause progesterone production practically ends while estrogen production continues from the fat in your body's cells.

Women over 50 years of age may use natural progesterone to aid prevention of osteoporosis, according to Dr. Lee.

For those currently on a hormone replacement therapy:

Estrogen Dominance may cause endometrial, vaginal and breast carcinomas. Estrogen alone blocks thyroid and causes water retention; and it can cause fibrocystic breast disease and even fibroid tumors and cysts. Synthetic progestins have many side effects, not found with natural progesterone, such as birth defects, miscarriages, fluid retention, epilepsy, migraines, asthma, heart and kidney problems or depression. Most women should not be on chemical estrogens and progestins. Natural progesterone is simply a NATURAL ALTERNATIVE to traditional hormone replacement therapy.

For those currently taking synthetic estrogen and/or progestins will need to wean off slowly by using Progesterone Cream.

Can Progesterone Cream prevent endometriosis or fibrocystic breast disease?

Many factors effect both of these illnesses, but the one thing they have in common is a high level of estrogen in the body that indicates hormonal imbalance. Progesterone helps to level out all endocrine and hormonal activity in the body. For these illnesses, Progesterone may aid in balancing the estrogen level and possibly help alleviate them.

What do I say to my physician who thinks this is silly?

There is nothing new under the sun. This formula is the same base as 400 FDA drugs, just without the chemicals. Also, as an informed individual, you have the right to choose... and the choice should be yours. Remember physicians only recommend what they know best. Possibly, your physician will want to study this further when he or she sees positive results with you.
