This is the most amazing thing I have ever done for myself! I finally feel like a whole person again.
– Shirley, 66

My family is very thankful! My mood swings were horrible; I didn’t even like myself! I had no energy or desire for anything. I just wanted to come home and take a nap, just to wake still feeling exhausted. I have energy, I don’t feel I need to take a nap in the afternoon, and I sleep like a baby!
– Phyllis, 44

I feel like I did when I was much younger! I’m happy, my husband is extremely happy, life is good!
– Lori, 48

I had been gaining weight around the middle, although I was exercising daily. It just seemed I was not getting results from my work outs. My muscle tone was turning to flab! After replacing my testosterone, I am getting results from my work outs, muscle is returning, and I am losing my tire around the middle!
– Bill, 49

I was having hot flashes several times a day! I had to take a change of clothes with me everyday! I was miserable! I have not had a hot flash since 3 days after my implant. Thank you Biosymmetry!
– Diane, 58

Every time I would try to talk to a physician about the way I was feeling, they would tell me that was just part of aging. The only thing they had to offer was an anti-depressant! I knew I was not depressed, but had no answers, until a friend told me about bioidentical hormones and how it had changed her life. I did the research on bioidenticals and could not believe the benefits. I have had my implants and my life has now changed in so many ways. My skin tone has improved, no more dry eyes, anxiety has disappeared, I sleep wonderfully and wake rested, my family is happy, and my husband -well let’s just say, Life is Good! I will never be without BHRT again!

I had lost my energy, low libido, and horrible mood swings. All areas are much improved!
