See What Women Are Saying

Tahoma Clinic Foundation often receives reports of better quality of life from women using Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.  We asked women who had not had cosmetic surgery to send us un-retouched photos and proof of age to confirm our hunch that women on BHRT looked younger than their years.  What we weren’t expecting was the write-ups the women included with their photos.  It seems women can’t say enough about the many benefits experienced with BHRT, and are anxious to share their experiences with other women.

I really don’t know what kind of person I would be without BHRT. I see how other women cope, or not really, who do not use BHRT. I have been using BHRT about 9 years, and am currently 60 years old. I run my own business and I know if I wasn’t on BHRT I would not have the business acumen, mental sharpness or energy level I need to continue to run this business and be productive. I also know I would not look as good as I do, feel as good and would not have the sex drive I have, all thanks to BHRT! Amen to BHRT!

Maple Shade, New Jersey

I am 83 years old, and have taken compounded bio-identical hormones through Women’s International Pharmacy for over 12 years at the suggestion of my primary physician.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

I have been on BHRT for the last 10 years and I thought you may like to have this photograph. I’m always hearing how much younger I look than my 67 years and have also been asked to show I.D. to receive my senior benefits. The photo was taken last month in July, 2012 at a family gathering. My gynecologist, Dr. Billie Jean Pace, at my annual exam in 2010 told me to consider donating my cells to science, since she seems to think I don’t age!

Orlando, Florida

I first learned about BHRT by reading Dr. Northrup and Dr. Lee’s material. I’ve been a member of Life Extension Foundation and subscribed to Nutrition & Healing for many years. Currently, I am 64 years old. I sought out BHRT treatment locally, and my doctor started me on bio-identical hormone therapy five years ago.

I routinely hear that I look younger than my age and my daughter and I are commonly mistaken for sisters. While I’ve always been energetic and health conscious, I feel BHRT has contributed to my energy, outlook, and good health. I run a home business, travel, am a busy mother of five with five step-children, a grandmother and new great-grandmother. I’m so thankful for the many benefits of BHRT.

Vesper, Wisconsin

I’ve been using bio-identical hormones since 2003. Nobody ever guesses my actual age, 60. My 40-year-old son is often mistaken for my younger brother. The benefits of BHRT for me go beyond my appearance, it helps me to control my menopause symptoms and more.

Cordova Tennessee

I turned 72 years old last April and I hear almost constantly that I do not look my age. I go to the gym 5-6 days a week and went on a 2-hour horseback ride on vacation this year—and wasn’t sore. I consistently see that I have more energy and look younger than other women my age. I have had no cosmetic surgery of any kind. I do yard work for other women my age. I can’t remember exactly when I started on bio-identical hormones, but it has been around 10-15 years. I have followed Suzanne Somers as well as Dr. Jonathan Wright’s information. I’ve been singing praises for natural hormones ever since I started. The doctor doesn’t seem to know when I should stop, so I’m not going to. You’d have to drag me away from them!

Eagle, Idaho

I have been a patient of Tahoma Clinic since 1999 and have used bio-identical hormones since then. I have been told that I look much younger than my 67 years – but I also feel much younger and have a lot less health and physical problems compared with other women my age.

Milford, Ohio

I started some form of bio-identical hormones in the year 2000. I also use bio-identical estrogen and progesterone. My husband and I both started using testosterone in 2006. I am currently 75, and my husband is 78.

I hope it will help others understand that bio-identical hormones really do help you to live a longer and more productive life.

Dayton, Ohio

I first learned about bio-identical hormone replacement when I took the seminar led by Dr. Jonathan Wright and Dr. Gaby in 1988, “Nutritional Therapy in Medical Practice”. I have been on BHRT since 1990—for 22 years now! I started hormone replacement in 1985 with Premarin and Provera. It made me so uncomfortable I stopped after a year. From 1990 on I have been using bio-identical hormones, taking trans-dermal estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. I am a patient of Dr. Wendy Ellis, at Tahoma Clinic in North Seattle.

I have never had cosmetic surgery, injections, or enhancement of any kind. I have no osteoporosis and am seldom ill. People always think I’m younger than my age. I look younger, act younger, and feel younger than my 72 years. I run 2 miles every other day, do a lot of heavy gardening and yard work. I am known for having tremendous energy and stamina. People are constantly asking me “How do you do as much as you do? What’s your secret for looking and acting so young?”. I never miss a chance to tell them: I eat well, don’t drink or smoke, avoid pharmaceuticals, and use bio-identical hormones!

Vineyard Haven, Maine

I started to use a natural wild yam extract body cream in 1996 for osteoporosis. My recent report showed that my bone density increased, and I am not osteoporotic 16 years later. Two years ago I had problems with vaginal dryness and started using estriol. Problem solved! I am a healthy, active and happy 79-year-young woman. I never knew BHRT could help so many health problems!

Fayetteville, Pennsylvania




I have eaten only whole, natural, and mostly organic for 28 years.  I’ve used BHRT for 23 years and topical microdose facial hormones for 10-15 years.   Also, I’ve been fortunate to know about and use facial cell rejuvenation therapy, a non-surgical procedure using injected skin cell growth factors.  I’m 74 years young!  (This photo was taken when I was 73.)
