Women's Success Stories
It's a difference of night and day, it really is. I was getting hot flashes. Some of the more intense ones I would call power surges. I couldn't sleep. It felt like there was a furnace inside of my body and it was just shooting heat outwards. I would wake up in the middle of the night just to take freezing cold showers to cool myself off. After starting treatment, my hot flashes went away, I haven't had one since. I am able to concentrate and I have all kinds of energy; it's mind-blowing!
Initially when I walked into Dr. Kenneth Orbeck's office, I was suffering from fatigue, weight gain, hot flashes, mood swings, irregular sleep patterns and other perimenopausal symptoms.

I've had great improvements.
My name is Joy and I was referred to Dr. Orbeck by some friends that have had some really good results with him. When I came to see him, I felt middle-aged, I felt awful, and I felt the worse that I’ve felt since college. I had no energy, I had no stamina, I didn't have the quality of life that I had years ago. In just a couple months’ time, Dr. Orbeck has absolutely changed my life. I feel wonderful, I feel better than I did in college. And every day gets better.
I'm 41 and I was morbidly overwight, it was just terrible. I was out of shape and couldn't find the energy to work out. I was suffering with all those hot flashes, night sweats, PMS, and depression really bad. I was looking on the internet one day and came across BodyLogicMD and thought that it sounded really good. So I took the online hormone balance test and found out that I was suffering from pre-menopause symptoms. So I contacted their office and the first thing they had me do was the saliva test.

Hello, my name is Rhonda, I am a mother of four kids and I have four grandchildren and raised one of them - the 5-year-old, who just goes from 0-100 in about one secound, 24 hours a day. My husband and I also own and operate a martial arts studio and that keeps us quite busy as well. You know when you're sitting in a chair and you're in a bad mood and you just want to rip someone's head off for no reason what-so-ever, that's not very appealing for me, my family or anyone else.
Over the past year, Jewel began noticing some strange symptoms, including chronic fatigue, waning energy levels and stubborn weight gain. Jewel went from doctor to doctor, and each adamantly insisted that there was nothing wrong with her.It was later determined that the symptoms she was experiencing were in fact the result of underlying hormonal imbalance. Jewel was suffering from an underactive thyroid gland, also known as hypothyroidism - a thyroid disorder that is notorious for weight gain and fatigue.

It just seemed like everything was starting to fall apart. One of my girlfriends was using bioidentical hormones and it got me curious.

Hi, my name is Jamie Glenn and I just wanted to talk about BodyLogicMD and how I found BodyLogicMD, to let other women know what they can do to help there hormonal imbalances. My story started when I was in my twenties and I started having lots of problems with birth control pills - I was getting migraines and all the other symptoms that everybody had from taking birth control pills.

Hello my name is Ruth Hornacek and I have been a patient of Dr. Michelle Schultz of BodyLogicMD of Naperville for about a year now and I can't tell you how much better I'm feeling now that I seen her for a year. I probably had hormone problems my whole life. They stared out you know early on, I would have horrible periods early on and had trouble getting pregnant. I had terrible endometriosis in my 30's, in my late 20's and 30's - ended up having a couple surgeries to get pregnant and the endometriosis kind of calmed down after a while, after I had my kids and it still just didn't feel very good.
For the past 25 years, I've maintained the same weight through diet and regular exercise. Once I started gaining weight without changing anything about my diet or my work out routine, I knew that something was wrong. The weight gain just kind of happened out of the blue and I gained nearly 12 pounds, mainly in my midsection. It was shocking to wake up one day and find out that my pants didn't fit anymore.
I first heard of bioidentical hormones on the T.V. and I looked it up on the internet and I found BodyLogicMD and I decided I had been lethargic I could not sleep at night I was just a nervous wreck basically. So I went to see Dr. Landa and she prescribed different hormones for me and it really helped.And then she put me on progesterone and estrogen and also having problems with my thyroid which she checked on that and that was one of the reason I was losing my hair and things like that, so she got my thyroid under control.
I had my 1st consultation with Dr Ohri in early February. I was feeling totally exhausted all the time, sleeping only 3 hrs, dragging around all day, putting on weight for no reason & unable to lose it no matter what I did. If that's not bad enough, I was cranky, irritable, impatient, & basically antisocial because I was so tired all the time. My hair had thinned out over the last year, with a bald spot on my scalp.
I've had sleeping difficulties since I was pregnant with my daughter. I've been to my general practioner,sleep specialist and accupunturist. I tried many sleep aids on the market throughout the years. My sleep worsened throughout the stressful years of raising an infant and teenager. I had difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. I would awaken hours at a time. I finally resorted to several different perscribed sleeping pills.
I am a 58 year old female with a busy job, family and home to maintain. My work days are 10 - 12 hours long, 5 days a week. The weekends are always busy taking care of and enjoying my husband, my family and my home. The past few years have been a struggle to keep up with it all. I felt 20 years older than I should, often tired and drained. I had difficulty sleeping more than a few hours a night. I couldn't focus and felt I had attention deficit.
I first heard about BodyLogicMD through a high school friend of mine; she is in her 40's, a working mom with 2 young kids and has the energy to train for triathlons. This was especially impressive since she had never been very active. When I asked her how she did it she told me how everything had changed for her when she started bioidentical hormone therapy with BodyLogicMD.

Hi, my name is Maryann. I'm 49 and I'm in perimenopause and a lot of women can relate to that. I certainly was one of them. I was deeply depressed. I was looking for help. I found some answers in a Suzanne Summers book and eventually found a referral to Dr. Jen Landa and I've been a patient now for nine months and I cannot tell you how much she has helped me, honestly, it's been fabulous. I went from complete depression to back to my old self. And, for anyone out there who has been second guessing themselves please don't.

Hi, I am Jennifer McCumber. I am a patient of BodyLogicMD and I am 27 years old, and the first time I got tested for hormone imbalances and things like that is about two years ago and I was feeling kind of unstable with my mood swings. Some days I would wake up and I wasn't sure exactly what was wrong. I really didn't like myself. Some days would be completely normal; I was on birth control pills and a plethora of other things. So you know, you might say hey you know you're young there is no way you're going to have hormone imbalances like this. This is something that typically happens after menopause well, that isn't necessarily true.
Hi Dr. Rubin, it's Vicky Torbush again in Naples, Florida. I can't begin to thank you enough for that magic miracle cream that you gave me to help with my weight loss issues. It's been about 40 days now and I have dropped 20 pounds and it's been all around my waist. It's been the 500 calories a day that you recommended, I've been very true to the plan except for two days when I had fundraisers and guess I fell off the wagon and had two glasses of wine both days. But other than that the ease of the diet was really simple.
After just 3 days on bio-identical hormone therapy I slept through the night for the first time in years.Now after a few months I feel like I am 21 with no signs of depression, I sleep well, my skin and hair are better than ever.I think clearly and look forward to a bright future.
I feel great! I have been on bioidentical hormones almost a year now and I cannot believe how good I feel. I am 54 years old and I have never had a libido like this, even when I was in my 20's. I have more strength and endurance than I've ever had. I feel that I owe this wonderful feeling to the bioidentical hormone doctors at BodyLogicMD.
Let's just do a comparison from head-to-toe as to what I felt like last year: Constant daily headaches: gone; clinical depression: much better, less frequent episodes; skin and hair: no longer dry and icky; hot flashes: GONE; breasts: no longer sore and swollen; "Menopot" (the lower abdomen issues) better; ability to burn fat, gain muscle and maintain a healthy weight: much better; sleep: MUCH BETTER! Energy level: like a kid again; adrenal/stress issues: able to deal with stress much better.
Hi, my name is Anne, and I've been on hormone replacement for about 3 months now, 3-4 months. I was desperate to try anything because my life was falling apart. I couldn't sleep at night, I was gaining weight, I was having panic attacks, I was irritable, and I girlfriend shared with me that she had found Dr. Landa and she had encouraged me to come. So I have and I have lost 14 pounds, the weight is just slipping off of me. I changed my diet, I feel 100% better. I'm exercising and I'm getting along with people again.
Hi, my name is Magali and I have been on premarin. It is a medication for hormone replacement because I have a hysterectomy and my cholesterol and triglycerides have been very very high for many many years and therefore I was also on cholesterol medication. Once I was informed of BodyLogicMD and my friend got my toward Dr. Landa, she started managing with my hormone replacement and my triglycerides have went down from about 412 to 80 so I'm very pleased with this and I recommend this to everybody.
Hi, I'm Brenda Sherman, and I am a patient of Doctor Landa here in Maitland, Florida. I've been coming to see her around three months and I started my hormone therapy and I have to say it is the best thing I've done for myself. I'm fifty years old and I feel fabulous. I started feeling better within the first week of taking my prescription medication. And when I came in I was having night sweats, I hadn't slept well in so long. I wasn't irritable but I just was tired. I was just so tired and I can't tell you the difference.
Hi, my name is Marilyn Fernandez and I've been a patient of Dr. Landa for the past 3 months.

And I have to tell you that after 3 months of being treated with the bioidentical hormones, I'm a different person.
Well Ron and I were watching Suzanne Somers on Oprah Winfrey and we looked at each other and said that's me! And I called Dr. Landa and I am a new person 3 months later. It is just the most fabulous thing I've ever done. I started out having severe night sweats, sweating all during the day, totally miserable. And now I just saw Dr. Landa today. Three months later I am like a new person and I just can't tell you how happy I am. Thank you!
Hi, my name is Kim Garrett. I happened to see the Oprah Winfrey show on bioidentical hormones and I realized that I had many of those same symptoms that they were discussing on the show. Mostly the lack of sleep, waking up with night sweats. I was soaking the whole bed every night and then I couldn't get back to sleep again, so I was only getting 2 or 3 hours of sleep a night. I was having hot flashes during the day. Of course that was making me incredibly irritable with my co-workers, with my family.
I so want to help other women going through what I have gone through. When I first saw Dr. Archer and she told me that I wasn't crazy nor did I have Alzheimer's - I was so relieved. When I first saw her I felt so hopeless and when I walked out of her office I can't explain the joy that I felt. She told me that I was estrogen dominate, had no progesterone, no testosterone.
Hi, my name is Debbie. I've been coming to Dr. Landa for about 8 months now, and I was an absolute mess and a nightmare when I walked through the door.
Hi, my name is Jane McGuire, and I'm very proud to say that I've been with Dr. Landa for now my 3rd year. I've lost 35 pounds. I felt terrible when I walked in here the first time. I really feel a difference.
Hi, my name is Evelyne Albanese. I'm going to be 51 years old, and started to go through menopause about 10 years ago, with my periods becoming less frequent and pretty much ending by the time I was 45, 46 years old.
Well, Dr. Thackrey's just been wonderful. I actually went and saw him last May for my first visit and having the blood work and saliva testing done. He was extremely thorough, everyone in his office was just wonderful in terms of getting my results, making sure I had everything I needed before I met with him.
My name is Laurie and I have been using BHRT for almost two years. I am currently 51, but have been told I was peri-menopausal for several years. Other than regular, but heavy periods, and some issues with sleep, I was not having too many other issues. I was, at that time, using over the counter herbal supplements that were intended to ease mild symptoms.
Growing older is no fun, but it can be with a little help. I went through menopause without hormone treatments of any kind. However, I was not adverse to taking bioidentical hormones because I read the research and was convinced of their safety.
