The creams and their amounts are designed to vary throughout the 28 day cycle because your youthful hormone levels naturally fluctuate. The Wiley Protocol targets age 20 as a baseline because heart disease and stroke, Type II diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease are not usual concerns for a healthy young individual. Approximately 80% of women with a uterus who have used the WP have had perfectly normal regular menstrual periods every 28 days. It is recommended that women without a uterus use the Wiley Protocol Lunar Calendar™* Day 11 or 12. Day 12 is better to see the estrogen peak. Check both estradiol and progesterone on both days. Day 21 is the progesterone peak but check both progesterone and estradiol. Try to do this about three or four hours after applying your cream. Don't put cream on the area where the needle will enter. Why does the Wiley Protocol advocate high doses of hormones?Because WP is biomimetic, it has been designed to mimic the hormone blood levels of a healthy young woman.
What are the optimum blood ranges for the Protocol?*Optimum ranges include:Day 12 estradiol - 350 to 550 pg/dlDay 12 progesterone should be 1-2Day 21 progesterone 10 -22 ng/dl. Day 21 estrogen should be 150-250.Note: These ranges are for a healthy, young 20-25 year old. It is best to use the same lab so you are measuring with the same measurement. Do I have to test blood every month?No, it takes a few months for the receptors to come on board so you may wait until the third month to test and then examine the results with your doctor who may change your Protocol.It is important to look at symptoms too. If you don't feel well and are showing symptoms of being low on a hormone check with your doctor. Thereafter many women only test periodically. It's good to test when you feel good to know what that looks like and also when you feel bad. Stress can bring the levels down very fast. The important thing is you don’t want to be hovering in the area below the blood ranges if you have symptoms.
Why do we need to get blood levels on days 12 and 21?By testing on days 12 and 21 we can assure ourselves that we are reproducing a normal cycle of a younger woman. Since the Basic Wiley Protocol rarely gets blood levels of more than 300 on Day 12, the blood work is a way of justifying to your doctor that you might need more to meet the upper levels to normal. Day 11 or 12. Day 12 is better to see the estrogen peak. Check both estradiol and progesterone on both days. Day 21 is the progesterone peak but check both progesterone and estradiol. Try to do this about three or four hours after applying your cream. Don't put cream on the area where the needle will enter. Checking on both days 12 and 21 will show an inverse relationship between the hormones. Why do we need to get blood tests?Blood tests are done to get a baseline so your doctor can adjust for accuracy. You will also make sure that you are getting into the ranges of healthy young women of 50 years ago who had low levels of diseases of aging. It can be very hard to learn about your symptoms without the help of blood testing.
Why the Wiley Protocol®?The Wiley Protocol is the only HRT that has been developed under the scrutiny of a practicing Oncologist. Over the last five years anecdotal statistics have been gathered from thousands of women ages 19 - 90, at meetings, who are on the Protocol, suggesting a profile of safety and efficacy. Choosing the Wiley Protocol is not only a vote for nature, it is also a vote for science.
