“For years I was diagnosed as depressed because of trauma in my history. I was tired all the time and fought with my weight and just didn’t ever feel 100%. Dr. Brown was the first doctor to realize it might not be a mental imbalance that was causing my problems. He found that my thyroid was out of whack and that I didn’t have enough progesterone. Through the use of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy I am now way past what I would have imagined 100% to be. Every thing is under control. I can finally sleep through the night, I’m losing weight and I have tons of energy. The guy is a genius!”

“After hearing my numerous concerns, Dr. Brown asked, “Is there anything else?” “Well, I don’t sleep very well,” was my reply. I would typically get between four or five hours of sleep a night before I would awake which was usually around 3 a.m. I thought it was a result of years of broken sleep from raising our three children. Despite applying all the good sleep hygiene suggestions that I had learned about, I still couldn’t get a decent night’s sleep. I was frustrated and I blamed myself. “I think I can help” Dr. Brown stated quietly. Those words changed my life.
I was prescribed Prometrium, a bio-identical hormone, and within two weeks I started sleeping seven to seven and a half hours continuously. I was amazed that it was that easy. It was simply delicious to sleep like that again. The change that it made in my life was profound. I was more patient and tolerant with my kids, who were now teenagers. I had more energy to exercise and I could even stay awake past 10 p.m. to enjoy the other benefits of having my hormones balanced. That one result has snowballed into many very good changes in my life. Thanks for the invitation to share.”
