Ancient Wisdom Delivers Wellbeing and Hormonal Balance to Support Women Worldwide


Created in 1997, Anna’s Wild Yam Cream fills a significant gap in the market for a drug-free solution to manage women’s wellbeing and hormonal balance.

Australian owned and made, this trusted formulation is loved by consumers for its potential to relieve menstrual discomfort, cramps and spasms, as well as many common menopausal symptoms.

So, who is Anna? There actually is no Anna. Co-founders, Carol Hamilton and her husband, Max, chose the name ‘Anna’ for its lovely, old-fashioned, feminine charm. 


Anna’s Wild Yam Cream came into being from an experience that changed Carol’s life. Carol was introduced to an experimental wild yam cream when menopause arrived. And to her surprise, not only did the cream help with her menopausal symptoms, it appeared to resolve her adrenal fatigue, which, at the time, had decimated her health to the point where doctors had told her husband she had only months to live. 

This miracle was the catalyst for Carol and her husband Max to develop a quality wild yam cream that was easily available to all women. Wild Yam has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. The roots contain diosgenin, which Carol explains “triggers the body to produce all of our steroid hormones naturally, beginning with healthy levels of cholesterol, including progesterone – often referred to as the ‘balancing’ hormone.”


Anna’s Wild Yam Cream combines Mexican wild yam and Chastetree which work synergistically together to produce the wonderful results women have enjoyed all over the world for the last 24 years. It is the only wild yam cream produced in Australia using herbal liquid extracts which are more bio-available to the body than dried herbs.  

When the time came to retire in 2020, Carol and Max set out to find the perfect custodian for Anna’s “to ensure that the brand continued to be supported with the same level of integrity and honesty Anna’s customers relied upon.” 


As an avid Anna’s user and a passionate advocate for the brand, Harmony Rutledge was delighted to accept this responsibility and become the new owner and operator of Anna’s Wild Yam Cream. Harmony says;

“I have been using Anna’s for many years and am so inspired by the results women are achieving with their hormonal health. From the discomforts of prepubescent girls to women’s fertility and menopause, and all the other unpleasant feminine issues in between, this product is helping females of all ages.”

So, where to from here? Harmony is committed to educating even more women about the many benefits of Anna’s Wild Yam Cream. Shipping worldwide, Harmony has established an online ‘Anna’s Community’, where women can share their experiences, symptoms and successes. “I believe it is so important for women to feel connected. When feminine functions are causing considerable discomfort, they can wreak havoc with our wellbeing and leave us feeling isolated,” describes Harmony. “I hope it can be a source of support and hope for many women.”

Anna’s Wild Yam Cream offers women around the world an exclusive, natural health alternative.
