I got my life back when I took control of my own health. I was tired of having migraine headaches and I was tired of being angry all the time. Most of the time, I didn’t even know why I was angry. I screamed at other drivers and I had never done that before. I would catch myself and suddenly be ashamed but a minute later, I was doing it again.
I knew something was wrong because I would see my husband looking at me like I was an alien or my friend would talk to me in soothing tones like you talk to a crazy person. I actually got so mad at the telephone one day; I unplugged the phone, took it outside and hit it with a hammer until it was broken to pieces. Just imagine the look on my husband’s face as he watched me kill the phone!
I knew I needed help, but I didn’t really know where to begin so I began with my regular physician. After the blood tests, it was determined that I was indeed going through menopause. I was put on something called the Combi-Patch. It may have helped a little, but probably not much because my husband would always say “Did you forget to put on your patch?” quite often. Of course that enraged me so I know it wasn’t working. After about 6 months, I started to have really bad headaches. I didn’t think it was related to what I was taking at first because I had always had headaches; I just thought they got worse during menopause.
The headaches progressed into migraines and each one got worse than the one before. I went to a neurologist and he put me on Topamax, which gave me a strange reaction – large, raised spots on my tongue. Then he was going to put me on some other medication that could cause extreme liver damage in some cases. I decided then that none of them knew what they were doing. I put 2 and 2 together and stopped using the hormone patch given to me by my family physician. Guess what? No more migraine headaches from that day forward.
I felt I still needed help with the menopause so I did my own research. I read several books, talked to people, looked up information on the internet and I was pretty sure which route I wanted to take – the natural one. It seemed like the safest and most practical. I heard about Dr. Hotze because of his radio show and I decided to attend one of his seminars with a friend.
At the seminar, much of what I heard was so true, especially the part about regular physicians being clueless and giving prescriptions for drugs that could, over time, really destroy a person’s health. After the seminar, I really gave bio-identical hormones a lot of thought and I was especially interested in the thyroid testing because I had many of the symptoms of low thyroid.
I decided to make an appointment even though I worried that it might be rather expensive. It turned out to be one of my best ideas. I did have thyroid antibodies and Dr. Hotze put me on Armour Thyroid which has done wonders for my headaches and various other symptoms. That alone was worth the visit! I had begged my regular physician to test my thyroid completely and she never did the antibody test even though I insisted. That is completely crazy to me. Then I was put on bio-identical hormones and my anger started to subside and I started to feel like a human being again. My energy was back, I started eating organic and my husband no longer looks at me like I’m an alien. In fact, I think we are getting along better than ever before. I told him – the menopause was tough to deal with, but once you have the proper balance, it’s like a fog has lifted and I can see more clearly now.

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!
