Hormone Therapy Woke Me Up!
YOU'RE NOT CRAZY!
It's Your Hormones
As Seen On...
Hi, I'm Marcella Hill, 42 from Utah.
5 years ago I started feeling numb to life. No sex drive at all, and my body hurt all the time. I went to my Gynecologist and asked her to check my hormones. My blood work came back "normal".
Years later I found Bio Identical Hormone Therapy.
It saved my marriage and my entire life!
- I actually WANT to have sex
- My body doesn't ache
- I now sleep ALL night
- Brain fog has lifted
- I have level energy all day
I shared my story on Tik Tok and now millions of women have said they had the same experience.
I had NO IDEA that a majority of women who tell their doctors about early menopause symptoms, are being told:
- Drink wine to loosen up
- You must not love your partner
- Lose weight
- Go on more dates
- Take an anti-depressant
THIS IS INSANE!
You deserve to feel good.
You deserve real answers.

Why aren't doctors helping?
After hearing thousands of your stories I got curious. Why is this happening? Why aren't doctors helping women? Why don't they seem to know about hormones?
My mom was on every menopause medication and she asked her doctors about Bio Identical Hormones and that is the first time I heard a doctor say, "We don't learn about them in medical school."
I had to find out more. This is what I found:
- Doctors don't learn about hormones
- The North American Medical Society provides the guidelines for menopause. And the primary care favors Anti-Depressants and pain management.
- Viagra is readily available for men but the study is "unclear" if it is effective for women.
- Females were not legally required to be in clinical studies until the NIH Policy in 1993!
SO NOW WHAT!?
Things I've Learned:
What are hormones?
I never thought anything about hormones. I heard them referred to when speaking about teenage boys doing dumb things, "It's just their hormones." Or when a women was being hysterical. "She's so hormonal." But I didn't know what hormones actually were or what they did. - Marcella Hill
Hormones are chemicals that manage different functions in your body. Hormones send signals to your blood, organs, skin, muscles and other tissues to tell them what to do and when to do it. Hormones are essential for life and your health. Hormone Information Podcast
What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)?
I didn't know anything about hormones until I went to a hormone specialist. I didn't know there was a difference between HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) and BHRT ( Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) - Marcella Hill
Bioidentical hormones are identical to the hormones naturally made by your body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) provides an alternative to hormones that are synthetic. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is made by compounding pharmacists in customized dosages based on the individual needs of the patient.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance
I didn't know my body aches and low libido could be caused by the same thing. I thought restless sleeping was due to a busy lifestyle. I had no idea that all my symptoms were all being caused by hormonal imbalance. - Marcella Hill
Loss of sexual desire
Feelings of Depression
Inability to Focus
Tired all the time

How Fast does BHRT work?
I wish after my first treatment that it would've worked on the drive home. And I could've walked in the door and immediately wanted my partner. But, that's not how this works. - Marcella Hill
Most will notice a change after 3 months. It can take 6 months for full benefits to be noticeable.
Everyone will have their own journey. Give yourself time to figure out what feels optimal for you.
Marcella's personal timeline:
Day 2 - I slept through the whole night
That continued nightly
Day 8 - I noticed a generally happy energy throughout the entire day
Month 3 - I notice that my body aches had significantly diminished and I started running again!
I was feeling alive! But the sex drive hadn't quite kicked in.
Month 4 - Second treatment. Sex Drive kicks into overdrive! My body heats up when he walks in the room.
Month 5 - No more need for lube during intercourse.
Month 6- Just going into it, will keep you posted HERE
What are the side effects of BHRT?
I didn't think about this. I figured if I'm willing to put Diet Coke and Movie Theater Popcorn into my body with no hope that it will make me feel alive, then put this hope of a better existence IN ME RIGHT NOW. - Marcella Hill
Facial Hair - (I have an extra chin hair to pluck (worth shaving a beard to feel this good)
Water Retention - (I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar to help with water retention)
Weight Gain - (I've gained a few pounds, but now that my body doesn't hurt I can actually care for my body properly)
Does Hormone Therapy Cause Cancer?
I didn't know the enormous concern about cancer linked with hormone therapy. After speaking with several doctors and BHRT providers, it was still not clear as to where this belief came from.
This is the best I have seen it explained:
"It's hands down the biggest screw up
of the entire medical field in the last 25 years."
"I won't be able to think of a bigger act of incompetence
than what happened with the women's health initiative in the late 1990's"
