To ask how I got my life back is like asking Jack how he grew a bean stalk. It would seem easy at first glance! You put a bean in the ground. Give it a little water, a little soil, and a little sun. Hopefully within 60 to 90 days a giant bean stalk would grow. So relating the bean stalk to getting my life back, you pick up the phone, call the doctor, get a slip of paper, go to the pharmacy, get the bottle of pills, take them daily, and you get your life back. I did that, but my bean stalk never grew. Jack was luckier in life than I.

That is, until I discovered the Hotze Health and Wellness Center. My story started like most others who have found the magical soil, water and sun of HHWC. I started having problems with my health from the time I was born. Pneumonia, bronchitis, and strep-throat became normal parts of my life. Many times requiring hospitalization. At age 11, I started my menses and began a whole new chapter of health problems. My teachers through grade school and high school knew that every month I would be gone at least 2 days. I struggled with painful periods. Thinking back, I should have taken stock in MIDOL. When I was 19, I had my first laparoscopic surgery to diagnose endometriosis. I would go on to have 3 more of those surgeries, and being put into false menopause to correct this condition, only to be followed by three miscarriages, and a complete hysterectomy at age 24. I thought all of the pain and suffering would be over. Well, I was wrong. Maybe I should have stuck to bean growing!

“I had all of the symptoms of low thyroid, weight problems, estrogen dominance,
yeast overgrowth, sinus infections and general exhaustion.”

After many doctors telling me I was just depressed, I started to question my sanity. I am an active person. I am a funeral director, a quilter, a photographer, a Harley rider, a wife and a friend, a daughter, and a sister. I should be able to do this thing called life! God didn’t bless me with children, but he gave me many blessed things. I had all of the symptoms of low thyroid, weight problems, estrogen dominance, yeast overgrowth, sinus infections and general exhaustion. Every day something on my body hurt. I couldn’t remember anything, I couldn’t concentrate, and I couldn’t sleep even though I was exhausted. Not one doctor recognized it and I began to question the legitimacy of these ailments. I questioned whether or not I could continue my existence. I felt like I was drowning.

I discovered HHWC in a Texas Monthly Magazine. I called them and the rest is bliss. They were kind, caring and still continue that same attitude today. I was put on estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, Cortisol, thyroid, and a host of vitamins and supplements. I stuck to the program, ate well, lost weight, and got my life back. My life has changed completely and I am now more responsible and am investing in my own life. I owe my life to HHWC and have sent friends there. They too are so grateful! So let’s talk about the bean stalk. If you plant a viable seed in organic soil, water it with natural rain, and let the sun shine….. It’s just what nature intended.

I leave you with this. My family doctor who was treating me for an ulcer I didn’t have just prior to me visiting the HHWC, saw me about 1 month after my visit. When she tried to do the coding for the billing part of my visit she said, “You are glowing, and I don’t have a code for healthy and well.”

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
