From Our Patients

Hello Dr. Gelhot,
I wanted to give you a quick update.
I had a CT Scan on Monday and I wanted to let you know the results. Everything was clear except the lungs. The nodules in the lungs had decreased in size from 2.4cm - 2.6cm on the PET scan in March to 6mm - .8cm on this scan. I was surprised at this much change in just a few months. And I've only had the chemo part of the treatment about 50% of the time due to the platelet issue.
I got the Keto Power today and will start using it tomorrow. I noticed it has a high level of potassium in it so it will help with my potassium problem. I have finally gotten the number back up to .1 point low. So this additional potassium should bring it up even more.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks,
I have been struggling with spinal pain and immobility for 5 years. During the five years, I tried desperately but was unable to keep my weight down. I eventually went from trying to stay under 150 pounds, to trying to stay under 200 pounds to completely giving up on weight control. Needless to say, I developed additional problems because of the weight.
It had become so difficult for me to lose two pounds that I did not believe that I could lose 3 to 5 pounds per week until I actually lost 40 pounds in about 10 weeks under the medical care of Dr. Helen Gelhot and using{her}Take Shape For Life program! I believe I will reach my ideal weight and already I am breathing and walking better. My daily task of pain management is not as labor intensive as I can move about more easily with the 40 pounds off. I know there are other positive changes in my body that will extend my life expectancy.
I canít thank you enough, Dr. Gelhot!
"Good afternoon, Dr Gelhot. Thank you so much for the hormone treatment! I feel so much better. I really never expected to have this level of energy again. I am absolutely thrilled with the results!
Along with increased energy and just feeling better overall, it also seems to have improved my concentration and memory as well. I feel that I am enjoying myself more. Odd, but I never realized that hormone levels had such an impact on emotions as well. I guess in hindsight though, it does make sense.
I wish that more doctors would offer these treatments to their patients. I am sure they would be amazed at the variety of symptoms that are related to a simple hormone imbalance. Hopefully in time this treatment will become more prevalent. I know that I am definitely an advocate!"

"For over 10 years, I have been plagued by hot flashes and night sweats. Over the years, I tried every hormone replacement prescription from birth control pills to patches to oral bioidenticals to oral artificial hormones to herbal supplements to wild yam cream to worthless tablets sold in infomercials. Anything that helped at all came with a bunch of troublesome side effects, and anything that didn't have side effects didn't help even a little bit. As I left menopause, I was saddened that my sex life seemed to be over due to pain, dryness, and lack of libido. The hot flashes continued while my hair and skin got dry and I put on weight that I just couldn't seem to lose, especially around my waist.
I felt like I'd tried every therapy in the universe and was ready to give up and accept my diminished quality of life when I heard about bioidentical hormone pellet therapy. I made an appointment with Dr. Gelhot. After a long discussion in which she explained absolutely EVERYTHING about the treatment and what I could expect from it, we got started.
It's been about a year and a half since I had my first pellet implantation, and my life has spun back 180 degrees. My energy and good moods have returned. My libido is back, and romance is once again a major part of my marriage. My waistline has slimmed back down and regained the definition it had lost. My skin has lost the crepe-like dryness it was getting, especially around my eyes and on my neck, but all over, really. Maybe best of all, I'm free of those killer hot flashes, and I'm sleeping through the night because the night sweats are gone. I feel as if Dr. Gelhot has given me back the capacity to live a full, active, joyful life."
