For 10 years I suffered terribly with Menopause symptoms. I had an extreme case of depression, anxiety, irritably, dizziness, chronic fatigue, hot flashes, night sweats, bone and joint pain, gastrointestional trouble, you name it I had it. After years of anti-depressants and pain medications, they worked for a while and then caused other problems, so I knew I had to get off of them. When I finally went to a Naturopath Physician, she put me on these and they worked like a charm after just only 2 weeks ~ and I only take half of the dose. I was instructed to crack 2 with my teeth and move under the tongue for absorption in the morning and then do the same in the evening. This "Phyto B" has truly saved my life!!!!!

Bezwecken Phyto-B is an extremely helpful product. I would like to know what caused it to be removed from the market and what it would take to bring it back?

I know it is just terrible that this product can no longer be made. It is because the FDA prohibited it for absolutely no apparent reason. In fact, all female hormones such as this one, which is natural, in pill form, they have banned. I believe they did this to benefit the pharmaceutical industry, so that could make more money on prescription hormones for women. However, look at all the viagra type medicines that men can buy. It is just not fair. I even contacted Bezwecken to find out if we could do something about it. This is what they told me: "We understand how difficult this transitions has been, we are very happy to announce to that Dr Shefrin has developed an Omega 3-6-9 oil-based alternative to the dietary supplements Progon and Phyto B, which will be available in mid-July."

I have finally given in to this product after taking the pellets for 6 years. When they pulled the pellets in July 2013, they played havoc with my well-being. I am a school teacher that is constantly on the go and is in desperate need of my sleep. I have MS on top of it all and really didn't have the wherewith all to deal with the lack of sleep and night sweats that I had to deal with. The new product probably works, but it has a vile taste. HELP!!!

For your information, the new product PhytoB-L is not supposed to be taken orally. You are supposed to rub it on your body. Also you should try Source Naturals Hot Flash pills which actually taste delicious but you just swallow them and Estrotone from New Chapter and NuMedica Dim Estro. Estrogen from Soy seems to work pretty well and have helped me. Here are the links to take you to these products: Source Naturals Hot Flash, Helps Reduce the Frequency of Hot Flashes Associated with Menopause, 180 Tablets and and NuMedica Dim Estro Vegetable Capsules ,120 caps

Why Does a New Study Push Dangerous Estrogen Drugs but Ignore Bioidentical Estriol?
October 30, 2013


Could it be because the author of the CDC-funded study has ties to the pharmaceutical industry?

A recent study published in the American Journal of Public Health says that 50,000 women died in a single decade because they weren't given estrogen after having a hysterectomy. The study authors believe this was likely due to safety concerns about synthetic estrogen arising from a 2002 Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study.

A major limitation of the new study was that it did not include data from use of transdermal estradiol and bioidentical preparations (i.e. estriol), even though the authors acknowledge that "millions of postmenopausal women currently use one or more of these preparations."

No explanation is given as to why they excluded this data despite their widespread use, but perhaps we need look no further than the fact that the study's lead author has significant ties to the pharmaceutical industry. Philip M. Sarrel listed in his disclosures that he has served as an advisor or consultant for Novagyne Pharmaceuticals, Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Garr Labs. He has also disclosed that he serves on the speakers' bureaus for Solvay Pharmaceuticals and Garr Labs-both of which make non-transdermal estradiol tablets!

As regular readers will know, bioidentical hormones are so important because they are produced naturally in the body. In a press conference, the FDA admitted that no adverse event involving compounded bio-identical estriol has ever been reported. Research involving 15,000 women funded by the Department of Defense and conducted at Kaiser-Permanente Oakland found that women who produced the most estriol during their first pregnancy had 58% less breast cancer over the next forty years. How can bioidentical estriol, identical to every woman's natural estriol, be unsafe or ineffective?

Compare estriol to the pharmaceutical versions that either come from horses' urine or are synthetic and imprecise versions of natural human hormones. Why would any woman prefer horse hormones or imprecise-yet-patentable copies of human hormone molecules to ones precisely identical to those found naturally in her body? Studies have also raised questions about possible heart and cancer risks from these hormones. This is why these drugs currently have Black Box Warnings on them.

Big Pharma has been trying to drive out bioidentical hormones for quite a while because safe estriol poses such significant competition. The latest threat was in the compounded medications bill. ANH-USA supporters and allies were able to win a big victory in protecting access to bioidentical compounded estriol in that bill.

Here is a great product I discovered. It is called ProgestoMend. Hot flashes are due to a lack of progesterone. Here is the link to take you there to purchase it. It is working for me.
