It's Like Being Cinderella at 65 and A Fairy Godmother Turned Me Into 30!“It has now been about 6 months since you started me on bio-identical hormones and vitamins based on the specific deficiencies you found in my blood work, and my response is a heart-felt thank you. I've regained about 80% of the energy I had when I was 40 -- which was a lot of energy. I'm working again and I like it! Dishes, housework, ironing, laundry, and cooking are just a breeze but are something I want to do and this comes with the increase of energy. I've lost 8 pounds because I wanted to exercise and watch my dietary intake. It sounds like a story too good to be true, yet it's true. It's like being Cinderella at 65 and having a Fairy Godmother turn you into 30. Thank you for all you have done for me. I am truly ecstatic and so are my husband and children.” --C.C.
