A CALL TO ACTION!
Recently, a new bill called H. R. 5204 was introduced to the
House of Representatives. Its purpose is "To provide
for coverage of hormone replacement therapy and alternative
treatments for hormone replacement therapy (HRT) under the
Medicare and Medicaid programs, group health plans and individual
health insurance coverage, and other Federal health insurance
programs." We at Oöna are very excited about this
development, first, because it may save our customers a lot
of money, but also, it demonstrates growing recognition (finally!)
that many women turn to alternative treatments for relief
from their menopausal symptoms without the risks of hormone
replacement. For the full text of the bill, go to http://thomas.loc.gov.
To put your democracy to work-write or call your representative
and tell them you want H.R. 5204 to pass!!! Just click on

you can click right on your representative's email address,
or obtain their phone number or mailing address.
MORE GOOD NEWS
A study published in the current issue of Breast Cancer Research
and Treatment supports the growing body of evidence that black
cohosh supplements can be used safely to relieve menopausal
symptoms in women with a history of breast cancer who cannot
take estrogen. The study adds to the growing body of evidence
showing that black cohosh can help alleviate symptoms without
exerting an estrogenic effect. This is welcome news for the
many women who cannot or who choose not to take hormone replacement
The study examined and compared the effects of black cohosh
extract, estrogen, tamoxifen (an anti-estrogen) and a placebo
control on estrogen-sensitive breast cancer cells. "These
data provide important evidence that black cohosh works differently
than estrogens and phytoestrogens to relieve the symptoms
of menopause," noted pharmacologist and herbal expert,
Steven Weisman, PhD.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH:
In the past I have tried using several different supplements
for the hot flashes and night sweats that I was experiencing
and nothing seemed to make a difference. Then I was talking
to my neighbor one day and she gave me Oöna to try. After
several weeks my hot flashes and night sweats disappeared.
I felt so great. After months of being on Oöna, I had
run out and tried using one of my old supplements and within
several weeks my hot flashes and night sweats returned. What
a difference! I will not go off of Oöna again for it
makes a great difference in how I feel each day. Thank you
so much for making this product.
