As a very active female adult I never thought much about menopause, or as my Mother’s generation called it “the change of life.” Hearing menopause referred to as “the change of life” I thought was somewhat odd. But again I had always taken care of myself. I had been a runner from a very young age, I had been in the gym weight training for years, always taken care in eating the right foods, and just felt in control. I think from a naïve state of mind I thought I would sail through this natural stage of life... When I started experiencing overwhelming fatigue and insomnia I went to my Doctor. His response of prescribing a sleeping pill to me and reminding me that I was getting older led me to research about this so called natural stage of life, menopause. I felt that there must be something other than drugs that I could do... It was while researching menopause that I finally figured out why my Mother’s generation called this “the change of life”. I was CHANGED! I went from an active adult who was in control, loved and enjoyed life to someone who had rather sit on the couch! Along with my overwhelming fatigue and sleepless nights, I was experiencing night sweats, loss of mental focus, mood swings, weight gain (and my eating habits had not changed), loss of libido, depression, irritability, this was not the person I knew. I wanted “me” back. I am sure my husband did also.. So when my research led me to LongevityMed and I met with Dr. Grant I was hopeful that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy would at the very least help with some of my symptoms. To my utter joy and amazement bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has given me back the life I knew..
No more symptoms! Everything is better than normal, it is great. My life is full, active, exciting and I can’t wait for another tomorrow with my husband! We are like teenagers again! I cannot thank Dr. Grant and the staff at LongevityMed enough!!!!!
