Two years ago, I decided to try hormone replacement when I noticed that my energy levels were not exactly what they used to be. As a long-distance runner, I had seen my times drop off from where they used to be, I was gaining weight, and felt tired and crabby too often. I was working out as usual, but the results were hard to see. After the hormone replacement, I feel so much better all the way around. My running times are back up and even better than they were in my 30’s. I have lost fat and gained muscle. I sleep well and feel well rested, in the mornings my moods are much more even. I feel lots better, more of my old self. This is such an easy way to get yourself back on track, that I would recommend it to every woman I know. Hormone replacement has made me a happier and healthier person.
