As there is no attempt to bleach any colouration of ingredients, the colour may vary from time to time and always represents the combination of the colours of the natural ingredients.


Anna's Wild Yam Cream is blended in Professional Manufacturing Laboratories approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration, and Anna's Wild Yam Cream is Listed with the TGA.


Anna's Wild Yam Cream was first formulated and tested in the latter months of 1996, and launched in February of 1997. It was one of the first professionally blended wild yam creams on the Australian market.
Our specifications called for the use of the highest quality ingredients available, and our initial successful formula has not been altered since 1996.
NB - The original preservative was replaced by a natural preservative in February 2010.
Located in the country our overheads are lower and these savings have funded the premium quality ingredients used, allowing us to maintain an as affordable pricing structure as is possible, whilst our compliance costs remain high as Anna's is Listed as a natural medicine with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
Because Anna's contains hormone specific nutrients and no man made hormones, it is perfectly safe for you to use. If you decide to use a little more, e.g. you use the cream as a face cream or moisturizer, your body will naturally dispose of any nutrients it doesn't require.


We suggest that you choose one location for each application, alternating between your inner thighs, inner arms, stomach and chest, massaging gently until the cream is fully absorbed.


In the protocols we use fractions of a small 2.5ml teaspoon as a guide to the amount of cream you should initially use. Our definition of a small teaspoon is one that would normally be used for stirring coffee or tea in Australia. It is not a 5ml metric measuring spoon, nor is it a small souvenir teaspoon or the larger American teaspoon which is also 5ml.
When we refer to a quarter or half a teaspoon, we are suggesting the amount that could be measured by filling the teaspoon to level and dividing it into four or two equal parts. We suggest that you do this once to see how much each amount looks like on your finger tip as a guide as to how much to apply from then on - we are not suggesting you measure each time!
If you are using a 5ml metric or American teaspoon the amounts would then be an 1/8th and a 1/4 respectively.
As a general guide to usage, women using the Menstrual Discomfort protocol can expect a jar to last 3 months, and women using the Extreme Menstrual Discomfort, Menopause and Post Menopause protocol can expect a jar to last 2 months.
As there are no man made hormones within Anna's, do not be concerned if you use a little more cream than suggested as your body will dispose of any nutrients it doesn't require.



Counting the first day of your period as DAY 1, commence applying one quarter of a small 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm from DAY 12 to DAY 20 and then half a 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm from DAY 21 until DAY 28, then stop using the cream. Your period should then come and you would recommence using the cream from DAY 12 as above.
If your period comes early stop using the cream. The day your period commenced is DAY 1 and you would start using the cream again on DAY 12 continuing as above.
If a period doesn't arrive after stopping the cream on DAY 28, count to DAY 12 and recommence using the cream as above.
If you are experiencing intermittent periods with hot flushes/night sweats, we would suggest you use the Menopause Protocol.
Be aware that you may initially experience heightened symptoms and this is a positive indication that a shift is taking place.


For example;
  • heavy bleeding with extremely painful periods,
  • frequent spotting mid cycle,
  • very long cycles,
Counting the first day of your period as DAY 1, commence applying one quarter of a small 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm from DAY 5 to DAY 18 and then increase to half a 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm from DAY 19 until DAY 28, then stop using the cream.
Your period should then come and the day of your period arrives is again DAY 1 and you would recommence using the cream from DAY 5 as above.
If your period doesn't arrive in the within the first five days after stopping the cream on DAY 28, recommence the cream as above and that day would then become DAY 5 of your new cycle.
However, remember whenever you experience a period with normal blood flow that day is always DAY 1 and you would stop using the cream and begin to count to DAY 5 once again.
If you experience spotting mid cycle continue with the cream until DAY 28 or until you experience a full period with normal blood flow if that day is before DAY 28.
Be aware that you may initially experience heightened symptoms and this is a positive indication that a shift is taking place.
If you are experiencing intermittent periods with hot flushes / night sweats, we would suggest you follow the Menopause Protocol.


Counting the first day of your period as DAY 1, commence applying one quarter of a small 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm from DAY 7 through to DAY 20 and then one 2.5ml half teaspoon am and pm from DAY 21 through to DAY 28, then stop using the cream. Your period may come the next day and you will then start using the cream again from DAY 7 as above.
If your period comes early stop using the cream. The day your period commenced is DAY 1 and you would start using the cream again on DAY 7 continuing as above.
If a period doesn't arrive count to DAY 7 and recommence using the cream as above.
Women who haven't had a period for several months and don't know when to start using the cream, may start at any time and the day you commence to use the cream would be counted as DAY 7. You would then follow the protocol above i.e. ¼ of a 2.5 ml teaspoon morning and night up until DAY 20, and then from DAY 21 increase to ½ teaspoon morning and night until DAY 28, then stop using the cream.
If a period comes, that day is DAY 1 and you would count to DAY 7 before recommencing the cream as before. If a period doesn't arrive count 7 days and recommence using the cream.

Menopausal symptoms should decrease in both intensity and frequency, disappearing by the third month if the above protocol is closely followed.
If at any time during this period hot flushes or night sweats cause undue discomfort, it may help ease your discomfort if a small amount of cream is massaged into your wrists every 15 minutes until the discomfort passes.
If hot flushes or night sweats continue, it may mean that that insufficient cream is being used, or used irregularly.
Women who have elected to come off synthesized hormones may choose to eliminate taking the breaks from using the cream and may need supplementation of additional phyto oestrogens during this period.


If you are a mature woman who has passed through menopause and hasn't has a period for over 12 months you are Post Menopausal.
You may decide to use the cream one quarter of a 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm continually without a break, or as we recommend take a 7 day break each month.
The easiest way to calculate your break is by using a calendar month, with DAY 7 being the 7th day of each month. You would then use one quarter of a 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm for two weeks and the remainder of the month one half a 2.5ml teaspoon am and pm. At the end of the month stop using the cream and wait until the 7th day of the following month and recommence as before.
NB - If you are still suffering from hot flushes or night sweats, we would suggest you initially use the cream morning and night without a break, also rubbing a little cream into the insides of your wrists when these occur. You will find these flushes and sweats come less often and are less severe and will disappear. We suggest you then begin to create a cycle for yourself as above.


We would expect you to be feeling the benefits after the first three months of using the cream, some women are feeling so good they are inclined to think they no longer need the cream!
If at this time you are feeling great, if you wish you can progressively reduce the amount of cream until you detect that you are sliding off the 'feel good' plateau, at this point you need only increase the amount by a smidgen to reclaim your balance - you then know how much cream is right for you.
If at any time you are under emotional stress or involved in extended physically strenuous activity increasing hormonal demands,it may be helpful for you to increase the dosage during these times. If you use more cream than we suggest there's no need to worry; your body will dispose of any nutirents it doesn't require through your normal disposal systems.
Anna's can also be used as a face cream, however it is important to take a complete break as suggested in your chosen protocol.

If you experience an allergic reaction, you may avoid sensitivity by applying the cream to the palms of your hands and soles of your feet. Experience suggests that after 2 to 3 months of using it in this fashion, you may again be able to use the cream sparingly on your arms and thighs to achieve good allergy free results.
The cream is an excellent facial and body moisturiser, but should only be used within the times indicated in your chosen protocol.


If your symptoms persist we advise you to seek the guidance of a Healthcare Professional, preferably one who is knowledgeable in Natural Therapies. We are happy to answer any queries you may have arising out of use of the cream. Our information line or email will help with anything you would like to know beforehand.
If you follow the appropriate protocol, we are confident that your experience with Anna's Wild Yam Cream will be a positive one.


After seventeen years of experience and the feedback from many thousands of satisfied women, who have shared their successes on a wide range of feminine issues, you may like to check out their testimonies on our 'Feedback' page. While these testimonies may be 'Anecdotal' the cumulative results over many years are building into an impressive history of 'Empirical evidence'. While there is no 'scientific' evidence that wild yam creams can transdermally deliver the benefits of their traditional herbal ingredients, there is simply no other explanation possible in light of the extensive results achieved.
Testimonies confirm our original understanding that Anna's Wild Yam Cream was capable of much more than the false suggestion of just providing Oestrogenic benefits, it appears on the wide range of benefits that these women have experienced go beyond all of the Adrenal Cortex steroids.
The active ingredient of wild yam is Diosgenin, a Phyto Sterol which has many amazing health benefits derived from a natural bio-chemical lipid pathway which is activated by phyto sterol nutrients and aided by numerous enzymes, leading to the production of Ubiquinone, Dolichols, Squalene and Cholesterol. This pathway is known as the 'Mevalonate Pathway'.


Ubiquinone is the genuine naturally produced form of Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is a powerhouse compound that's in nearly every cell of our body. Its health benefits are many, primarily known for its value in maintaining our most important muscle the heart, it also converts nutrients into energy, and is sometimes described as the 'sparkplug' in each of our cells, is also an indispensible antioxidant. Ubiquinone also assists the immune system, digestive system, hearing, vision, nervous system, metabolism, respiratory system, and skin

Dolichols 'The 'Unknowns': Very little is commonly known about Dolichols, and the highly important roles they play.
Dolichols are responsible for the processing of Proteins. Those magic particles so important to our function and destiny are synthesized within each of our cells.
It is within this microscopic structure that amino acids are linked together into popcorn string-like peptides. Some peptides will ultimately serve for cell identification, others produce insulin because our blood sugar is rising.
The final role depends on the protein structure - Just using proteins can give hundreds of options but the addition of these sugars to the protein strand gives tens of thousands of structural options.
It is this almost unlimited range of options that gives humans our tremendous range of behavioural and emotional reactions. This process too, is orchestrated by Dolichols in its preparation of the final protein structure.
The Dolichol-mediated process is also involved in neuropeptides formation; they are neuronal signalling molecules that influence the activity of the brain in specific ways and for cell communication, cell identification and immune functions.
This complex role is such that almost anything can be expected when Dolichols are deficient. Altered emotional and behavioural reactions are likely explained by altered neuropeptides formation.


Squalene is found throughout nature and is a major component of human skin surface lipids. Squalene accumulates at the greatest concentrations in the skin where it plays a vital role in quenching free radical oxygen, preventing oxidative damage from ultraviolet light. Squalene is also beneficial as an antioxidant, but its most unique feature is the presence of alkyglycerols - chemical compounds found in human bone marrow and breast milk, which help regenerate the immune system.
Regenerating the immune system is more than just stimulating it into action; the regenerative action means ongoing support to enhance the overall strength of the immune system long term.
The activity of alkyglycerols in the body has been studied for decades, and their action is associated with increased production red and white blood cells; the white being the body's main defence against disease and infection.
The dual benefit of increasing blood cells and regenerating the immune system are perhaps the reasons that Squalene seems to be so useful for so many people around the world for maintaining all-over health and wellbeing.
And finally at the end of the Mevalonate pathway where approximately 10% of Squalene is converted into cholestrol

Hormone Pathways

Cholesterol is the precursor to all the adrenal cortex hormones commencing with Pregnenolone, thence DHEA, Progesterone, Testosterone, Oestrogens - in fact all of those hormones commonly referred to as our 'Steroid Hormones'. Plus Glucocorticoids, which regulate blood sugar levels, and Mineralocorticoids, which regulate mineral balance.
Cholesterol is essential for Neurological function. Cholesterol is the main organic molecule in the brain, constituting over half the dry weight of the cerebral cortex.
Cholesterol plays a key role in the formation of Memory and the uptake of hormones in the brain, including Serotonin, the body's feel-good chemical. When cholesterol levels drop too low, the serotonin receptors cannot work.
Cholesterol is used as an insulator around nerves; cholesterol promotes healthy nervous system function and helps to prevent diseases associated with the nervous system.
Cholesterol is the cells waterproofing medium. Without cholesterol we could not have a different biochemistry on the inside and the outside of the cell. When cholesterol levels are not adequate, the cell membrane becomes leaky or porous; a situation our immune system interprets as an emergency, releasing a flood of corticoid hormones that work by sequestering cholesterol from one part of the body and transporting it to areas where it is lacking.
Cholesterol is an Anti-Inflammatory and one of the body's immune systems emergency repair substances; which explains its presence in arterial plaque. Scar tissue contains high levels of cholesterol.
Cholesterol is the precursor to Vitamin D, necessary for an ever expanding number of biochemical processes. As Dr. Cannel explains, Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin, but rather the only known substrate for a powerful repair and maintenance steroid hormone (known as Calciferol) that is involved in numerous helpful functions of your body and organs.
Additionally, if you understand that, like all steroid hormones, Calciferol regulates your body by turning your genes on or off, and that you have about 2,000 genes that are directly influenced by this hormone, then you may be able to wrap your mind around the fact that the hormone Calciferol may in fact have as many as 2,000 or more mechanisms of helpful actions within your body, with more being revealed regularly.
Cholesterol also creates the Bile Salts, required for the digestion of Fat. Those who suffer from low cholesterol often have trouble digesting fats. Cholesterol also functions as a powerful antioxidant, thus protecting us against cancer and ageing.
We trust you may now appreciate Cholesterols many healthy benefits! As can be verified in any scientific text on steroidal hormones, Cholesterol precursors Pregnenolone which initiates the complex multi pathways of the Adrenal Cortex Steroids, commonly referred to as the gender or reproductive steroids ‐ however their physiological role is far greater than just our reproductive functions with a broad spectrum of health benefits.
When we speak of 'a feminine balance', we are suggesting that even if your endocrine system is not entirely healthy, there is a reasonable possibility that Anna's Wild Yam Cream may help you produce a healthy level of ALL your adrenal cortex steroids NATURALLY at the right time and in the right quantity for your healthy function. (See introduction to the 'Feedback' page, and 'About Us' page).
If you study the diagrammatic chart of the Steroids above, you will recognize the better known hormones, including Progesterone, Testosterone and the three components of Oestrogen, you may be surprised with the number of supporting elements that are necessary to achieve a natural healthy balanced steroid production.
When you view the chart it may be easier to understand if you can visualize your adrenal cortex, as your own highly complex onboard computerized production facility that produces the appropriate steroids on demand at anytime to meet your immediate emotional, physical and reproductive needs ‐ a remarkable feat by any measure.
