Hormone Replacement Therapy Success Stories

The following stories have been taken from actual cases in Dr. Vliet’s practice. All names are fictitious to protect patient confidentiality.

“Dr. Vliet & Staff,
I wanted to thank you so very much for making me feel welcome during my daughter's consult visit last Thursday. I have never met a better group of women in a Doctor's office! We were all so very impressed with how you conduct your business, and how we were made to feel "at home". My daughter is in some ways already feeling better, and I know it is going to take time, but you have been an answer to prayer. Thank you so very much for letting God use you to get to the root of my daughter's problems. As her mother it has been such a very hard time for me. I knew in my heart she did not have a mental issue. You gave us the answers we were looking for! I hope to see you again sometime.
God Bless and Thank you again,
Connie, from Texas”

“SHELLY,” 34 Years Old, Premature Menopause
“I’ve been on Premphase since my doctor told me I was in premature menopause. I can’t remember things, I’m gaining weight around the middle of my body, I have NO energy, my sex drive is totally gone, my joints ache, and this is all getting worse.”

“CATHY,” 56 Years Old, Hysterectomy & Removed Ovaries
Cathy still had night sweats that woke her up several times during the night. Extreme fatigue was making it hard for her to get through her daily activities. She also complained that her breasts felt full and tender most of the time. She couldn’t remember things well and felt like she had “brain fog.” Her complete loss of interest in sex was affecting her marriage.

“JUDITH,” 31 Years Old, Acne, Boils & Skin Discoloration
Judith had severe cystic acne, skin breakouts, and discoloration of her skin, especially on her face. All this coincided with the progesterone-dominant phase of her menstrual cycle. She had tried all kinds of medications and approaches for this “dermatological” problem, without success. No one had ever checked her hormones!

“RIA,” 53 Years Old, Fibromyalgia & Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy
Ria had been treated for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, a syndrome that causes a burning, excruciating pain difficult to relieve even with narcotic medication. Over the past five years, however, she had developed a new, clearly different kind of pain — a dull and aching sensation in the muscles of her arms, hands, legs, and back. In less than a year, the pain had grown to the point that Ria had difficulty walking and had begun using a cane.

“ODESSA,” 42 Years Old, Interstitial Cystitis
In excruciating pain, up all night long to urinate, exhausted from lack of sleep and chronic pain, having to urinate forty to sixty times a day, Odessa was dismissed by the urologist in her HMO who told her she didn’t need any more tests and that she just had to “stop drinking so much water.”

“RYA,” 42 Years Old, Mood Swings, Headaches
“I have terrible mood swings and constant headaches, and I have been so frustrated with this because I have always been so healthy. I just want some answers with my hormones and what I can do to take something more natural and feel better. My psychologist heard you speak and feels you are the person I should see.”

“VR,” 65 Years Old, Hypertension
“I believe Dr. Vliet saved my life. She listened to my concerns and accepted the possible validity of them. She ordered the tests that would give her the factual information she needed to confirm or deny my subjective feelings about my body. Dr. Vliet did a complete reevaluation, and with her colleague, provided me with a new regimen of preventative medicine and appropriate medications.”
