  • It is a very good article, some of the replies are a little strange. PR

  • She writes really well - thanks for link to a very interesting article. I feel for those poor mares - what wickedness to animals in the supposed name of science, sheer greed and profiteering at any cost. I think the scientists who devise this stuff are psychopaths, in a sane world they'd be the ones locked up not those horses.

  • How does Marion Gluck justify her charges or is that due to location location location?

  • I wouldn't pay those kind of prices but I think it's standard for "harley street/wimpole street" doctors. The consulting rooms probably cost an arm and a leg to hire.

    I had a neurology consultant's secretary quote me £380 for a consult in a less fancy London venue some years ago.

  • I go to Dr Gluck. Saved my life.

  • I have used Projuven (supposedly a progesterone cream) as I don't want to take HRT. Can't say it's made a scrap of difference.
