I believe that others may notice the positive effects of BHRT even more than we do ourselves that is why I can testify to the change in my husband’s outlook on life and health even more than my own. I feel that my experience in balancing my missing hormones gave him the confidence to take a look at how he might benefit. Personally, I felt like a “woman” rather than a “thing”, that passion for life seemed to come back. And my husbands experience validated that feeling. There was a rekindled spark, that is a huge gift. He is also benefiting most greatly through the HCG weight loss program, it has given him hope of regaining a new lease on life. You know, there were times that I wandered even as “young” as I was, “was our life always going to be without passion, would that ever come back? Now because of the way we both feel about ourselves and each other (and with the nurturing guidance of Sally Lake RN) “life” has returned! There are ups and downs getting your body used to the new hormones, but the benefits far outweigh the minor negative side effects.
