Like many women, I came to Hotze by way of desperation, and with the hand of divine intervention!! My name is Carol Fall, and I own and operate Fall Farm Country Inn in Mineola, Texas. It turns out that I was born to be an innkeeper, and after 14 years in business I am still passionate about serving my guests. But, I was ready to give it all up two years ago because I could no longer hide my fatigue, depression, and pain from my guests. I could barely fake a smile when greeting my guests at the door, and was beginning to dread each and every reservation. It’s not as if I hadn’t tried to get better, but there were no longer any options out there for me. I was in perimenopausal misery, my cycles were in the twilight zone, either nonexistent or in the emergency room with hemorrhaging; I was depressed, and had absolutely no reason to be; my mood swings were affecting everything in my life, most especially my marriage; my hair was thinning; I experienced extreme fatigue, with joint and muscle aches that didn’t make any sense; I had brain fog and memory loss, cold hands and feet, and, oh, did I mention that I was 100 lbs. overweight? I was 45 years old, and I thought to myself, “Is this it for me?” I asked my doctor to give me synthroid, but he couldn’t because my “blood test” came back in the normal range, which puzzled both of us. So, instead, he gave me an antidepressant! After two years on Zoloft, I took myself off because it was attacking my nervous system – go figure!! This brings me to November, 2005 – I didn’t have any other alternatives through traditional medicine, and had been praying for another way to be revealed to me. A wonderful couple who have frequented Fall Farm for many years came for their stay, and this time brought me a gift of the book, Hormones, Health, and Happiness. They had no idea how incredible the timing was – they had only seen my health deteriorate through the years, and were concerned about their friend. I read the book, which made so much sense, and made an appointment.

“…my mood swings were affecting everything in my life, most especially my marriage;
my hair was thinning; I experienced extreme fatigue, with joint and muscle aches that
didn’t make any sense; I had brain fog and memory loss, cold hands and feet, and,
oh, did I mention that I was 100 lbs. overweight?”

After beginning the Hotze program, it was evident that I was suffering from hypothyroidism, and had been since I was a young girl. I was also estrogen dominant, and suffered from adrenal fatigue. And, not surprising, my obesity was linked to all of these conditions, as well as a hefty yeast overgrowth problem. I had my work cut out for me, but I was ready and committed. What I call the “Hotze process” has been an incredible journey for me – one of discovery and empowerment. From the start my body was singing relief, and I was more than grateful to have the support of the dedicated Hotze staff at my fingertips. . . a concept that is foreign to our traditional medical community.

I am today, physically fit, emotionally stable, and, for the first time in my life, feel a “sense of well-being”. I see hope, where I never did before. My “Hotze process” is ongoing, and I am energized to take charge of my health and happiness . . . as every person should. I’m now able to work hard here at Fall Farm, fall into bed, sleep through the night, and bounce back up the next morning. I have a renewed sense of passion as an innkeeper, and look forward to every guest that walks through the door! I’m a happier wife, as well, that does not react to the least little thing anymore – my husband is also happier – ha, ha!! And, oh yeah, I’ve lost 100 lbs. – yippee!!!

I am humbly and sincerely grateful to Dr. Hotze for his compassion, vision, and dedication to educating us all about bioidentical hormones. To give hope to someone who is desperate is a precious gift . . . one that he gives freely, and lovingly. And I hope that my experience in this program helps make a difference with others. Thank you for allowing me to share my story of success!

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!
