Yes this is my story, but more than just my story, it is my family’s BEST story. I am just so grateful, I mean really, really grateful for the help I received from the Hotze Wellness Center.

My name is Elaina and I am 45 years old, married with three children. My “story” started just after I gave birth to my last child who is now 15 years old. After a tough birth that resulted in a c-section along with having a tubal ligation (without understanding the possible side effects), I came home much different than I had left. I was depressed and gaining weight. Before this last birth, I was always active. I ran 5K runs 5 to 7 times a year, aerobics at least 4 times a week and was a biker. I was able to do this even after having two children. But, something about this last birth changed all that. I continued to be depressed and I started to be fatigued most of the time. The family joke became “where’s mom?”, “in her chair”, always said with a chuckle. But it was not funny to my husband who said that “he felt he had lost his wife” for the last 13 years. YES! I was like this for 13 long years.

In that time, I saw many doctors.   The first was my OB/GYN doctor (3 months after my child was born). When I explained my symptoms, he smiled and said “you just have the baby blues, eat right and exercise and you will be fine”. I was not. The next doctor was a gynecologist, who listened to me and then walked out of the exam room, proceeded to give me a prescription for symptoms of depression (Wellbutrin), incontinence, and birth control pills (despite my tubal ligation). I went home and never filled the prescriptions nor went back. I figured that at 41, my life was going to be this way until I died. I had no energy for my daily life, I had no sex drive…AT ALL, I was depressed constantly and I started thinking I just want this to be all over.

Thanks to my husband and my mother who both are forward thinking, knowledge seeking individuals; I was helped. My husband was on an airline flight and read an in-flight magazine about bio-identical hormones and what they could do. He read that I had many of the symptoms listed that could be helped with natural, bio-identical hormones, NOT THE CHEMICAL versions. My husband brought this article home for me to read and told me it was either Hotze Health and Wellness or a lawyer! We found to our surprise that this forward thinking center was not in Europe, but right down the street in Katy, Texas.

All I can say is…”LIFE IS GOOD AGAIN”! It was not overnight, but it seemed like it. I am now finishing college. I go to the gym three times a week without feeling like I am going to die when I wake the next morning. I feel like I did when I was in my 20’s. My only worry now is not having my natural hormones. I never want to go back to the old tired routine of a doctor telling me that I just need to live with it. Or that it is just aging and so on. I no longer need a special “Mom’s chair”. I now have many chairs to choose from when I “choose” to sit and relax.

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!
