After an in depth consultation, the hormone expert Anne saw had it narrowed down for her. She was suffering from pre-menopausal symptoms of testosterone deficiency. Anne was very surprised to learn that women not only made testosterone in their ovaries, but it was a vital part of hormone for their overall physical and mental health and wellbeing.
After she had her blood tested for hormone imbalances, something her sister never got, it was revealed her testosterone was indeed low! Based on all of the research Anne had done surrounding hormone balance, hormone replacement therapy with bio-identical hormone pellets, and improvements in overall health, she opted to move forward with the therapy.
Anne returns to her hormone practitioner two months later for a follow-up and cannot believe how amazing she feels! The depression, anxiety, mood swings and sleep issues are all gone as well as the fatigue; and … WOW! What a libido! Her husband prays she never stops this therapy! His wife is back! She is back to her workout routine, and looking more like her old fit self!
At age 45, Anne no longer resembles her twin sister Carol. She is fit, lean, exercising, is on no extra medications and her annual check-up is so amazing her primary practitioner (who also treats her twin sister) wants to know what she has been doing to stay in such great shape. She shares with him she is on a natural hormone balance therapy with bio-identical hormone pellet implants; although he scoffs under his breath, he does seem intrigued by the differences between Anne and her twin sister.
At 55, Anne’s hot flashes and menstrual changes have begun. Not a problem for Anne! Her hormone balance practitioner has simple added a bio-identical estrogen pellet to her testosterone therapy, along with some natural progesterone to balance her estrogen. Anne sails through the peri-menopause and menopause years with minimal, if any, setbacks. She has certainly avoided the host of prescription medications her sister is on. Moreover, her baseline bone density scan is normal, her cholesterol levels are perfect and her body mass index (BMI) and blood work is all within range; she shows no indication of diabetes, and her blood pressure is normal. Her primary care practitioner is still skeptical, however he is beginning to see with his own eyes how beneficial this has been.
At age 60 Anne feels great, looks great, has energy, mental clarity, sharp focus, and an amazing sex drive!
