Bio-Identical Hormone Treatment Testimonials

Dr. Ariss,

Finding the appropriate words which describe the awesome differences that I have experienced during my first month of Bio-identical hormones would be nothing less than impossible.

I honestly have a new lease on life. Every area of my life has been positively impacted. If only I would have known about this (8 years ago).

I am certainly looking forward to what the future holds …Thanks for helping me to live again!


K.C., Age 40

Approximately 5 months ago, I met a female patient of Dr. Eddie Ariss. I immediately was attracted to her beauty and self-confidence … she was as beautiful inside as she was on the outside … I was drawn to the aura that she projected to everyone!

I asked her what her “secret” was…she brought up Fresh Vitality and Dr. Ariss. She stated that “they” had literally “changed her life … revitalized her.” I wanted to know more.

I’m sneaking up on 60 years “young” and frankly, had not had a good night’s sleep in years, was up several times an evening for an untimely relief of my bladder, had no “zest” for life, had a difficult time staying focused. I went to the gym all the time, but was breaking down too frequently, (my mind was willing, but my body seemed to be lagging). Hell, even my SEX DRIVE was waning … I WAS LOOKING FOR HELP (no, I was crying out for help).

I went to see Dr. Ariss and his staff. He stated that before he could properly diagnose me, he needed to do a thorough blood analysis on me. This was done in a prompt manner. Dr. Ariss sat down with me and he gave me an extremely informative summary of what he had diagnosed, (deficiencies in vitamins, testosterone levels, cholesterol levels, etc.). His explanation was in terms I could easily understand. After his explanation, I asked Dr. Ariss what I should do…what did he recommend?  Dr. Ariss proceeded to give me his recommendations; what vitamins, supplements, testosterone, etc. that my body was lacking.

I immediately started taking everything that Dr. Ariss recommended; that was about 3 months ago. What I noticed almost immediately was more of a “calmness” about me. I slept better ( actually sleeping up to 8 hours a night of uninterrupted sleep). I’m able to stay focused easier. I have my “zest” for life back…

Physically,  I sincerely feel that I’m in the best overall shape of my life, (I’m a lifelong jock). I actually have had people stop and ask me, “Damn, how old are you?” and young kids in their teens stating, “What the hell…” I’m vain – I love it!

Overall, I can’t say enough wonderful things about how I feel today! I give a lot of credit to Dr. Ariss and his support staff. I don’t want to misrepresent myself….IN addition to the recommendations of Dr. Ariss, I have also watched what I eat and drink much more closely…”we are what we eat.”

In summary, I’m excited about what is to come and it will only get better. The best thing to come out of all of this….that young lady that told me about Dr. Ariss and Fresh Vitality….she’s now “the love of my life.”
