Here are some more detailed stories of how I’ve helped people overcome their challenges.
My biggest complaint was that I was always tired. Even if I slept 10 hours the night before. I just was dragging all day. My doctor put me on thyroid medicine many years ago—when I was about 28. After talking with Dr. Jones, I decided to have myself tested, and sure enough, my thyroid was low. I had gained almost 30 lbs. over the last two years.
Dr. Jones changed my thyroid to the natural kind and wow! What a difference the right kind made. My energy levels are way up, and now I love to exercise. I can’t say enough for the great changes I’ve felt.”

I had been on Hormone Replacement Therapy for 14 years. I was afraid of what it was doing to me, but I didn’t really know that there was anything safe out there. Dr. Jones had me tested and found out that I was low in 4 out of the 5 major hormones. I was so relieved when he told me that, because I thought I was going crazy.
Talk about “hormonal” —I was so emotional all the time. 6 weeks after I was put on the BioIdentical hormones, I felt like I was a totally different person. I felt level. I felt stable.”

Write a testimonial? You bet I’ll write one! I’m 48 years old and I never wanted to take any hormones because of everything I had heard the last few years. Then I started having hot flashes every night and sometimes during the day—gradually at first—but then they became regular.
Then I started gaining weight around the middle. I’ve never had to worry about that before. My older sister told me I was going into “the change,” and that I needed some hormones. I started asking around and was referred to Dr. Jones. He found out that I was low in estrogen and progesterone.
In less than one week on the new kind of healthy hormones—no more hot flashes! Even my husband has commented that I don’t seem to get the PMS that I used to have. It was so simple!”
Terri N. Salt Lake City, Utah
My aunt told me about the Utah Wellness. She nagged me long enough to have me make an appointment with Dr. Jones. Next year I turn 40, and I was already considering HRT. I’m so glad I found out about the bio-identical, natural hormones.
My OB/GYN wanted me to go on Premarin about 5 years ago. Knowing what I know now, there is no way I’d ever take that stuff. Since taking the right hormones, I have felt so much better that my GP has taken me off my Prozac. Thanks Dr. Jones!”
Nora P. Sandy, Utah
This has been life-changing for me. I’m 22 years old. I had no energy. I was depressed. I had terrible PMS. I was gaining weight and I didn’t really care any more. My husband and my mom went in with me to see Dr. Jones. After the tests came back, I was really relieved to see that it wasn’t all in my head.
My hormones were so low and out of balance that I could barely function. I found out also that I had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. I’ve been on the bio-identicals now for almost 6 months. At first the changes were slow. Pretty soon I saw my moods improving—probably because I had more energy. I can truly say that I am not even the same person now.”

8 years ago my cholesterol was at 380. By taking Lipitor they got it down to 260, which was still way too high, plus all the bad side effects. Dr. Jones told me that high cholesterol almost always was a sign of low thyroid. We tested my thyroid and I was very low…and tired all the time.
After 3 months on the natural hormones, my cholesterol is now 210, without Lipitor! I am so pleased with the outcome, and my energy levels are up, too.
Peggy L. Salt Lake City, UT
Like it or not, menopause hit me like a ton of bricks. Even though I’m a nurse, I didn’t really expect it to be that bad. I gained weight. My bladder started leaking every time I coughed or sneezed. I was tired all the time. My sex drive was gone completely. I had fluid retention, hot flashes, and I was a witch all the time.
I had read Suzanne Sommers’ book called The Sexy Years and that was exactly what I was going through. I talked to the doctor that I work for and I was so upset because he wouldn’t even consider letting me try the bio-identical hormone therapy. He said there was nothing wrong with Premarin, which I knew wasn’t true.
I started calling all over to find a doctor that knew about the new type of healthy hormone therapy. I was finally referred to the Center for Hormone Therapy. Then I got a real education. Dr. Jones sat down with me and explained everything about the way low hormone levels could affect just about everything I was going through.
I couldn’t believe I’m a nurse and I didn’t know half of what I now know about the importance of keeping my hormone levels up if I want to feel good for the rest of my life. I tell everyone now!”
M. Cook, Draper, Utah
I’m a 58 year-old dentist. I have been active all my life. About 4 years ago my wife accused me of being no fun anymore. She said I was a “couch potato”. I was. I was so tired all the time. I had lost the passion I once had for my profession, even though I kept at it. My drive was gone.
I wasn’t the typical aggressive guy I had always been. I felt like my battery was totally drained. My wife attended a lecture that Dr. Robert Jones gave about hormone therapy. She came home that night and told me that she was going to make an appointment for me. I said, “No way.” She’s very persistent, and soon I was visiting with Dr. Jones.
The testing showed that I was quite low in thyroid, and extremely low in testosterone. After 6 months of hormone therapy, I’m back on top of my game! What a difference the hormones make. Personally, I think any man over 50 who is wearing down should get checked for low hormone levels.
I sent my younger brother in and he was low too. My partner at the clinic asked me about it, and I bet him $10 that his hormones were low. They were, and now he’s a believer, too.”
Dr. Jay N. SLC, UT
I’m a personal trainer. I see so many women who diet all the time, and they work out 6 times a week—and they just don’t make any progress. They don’t lose weight no matter how hard they try. It’s very frustrating for me, because my job is to get those pounds and inches off them.
I have referred many of my clients to Dr. Jones for the natural hormone therapy, and they always come back so excited after having their hormones tested. I have observed that after we get their thyroid up, then the dieting and exercise pays off big-time. The testosterone helps get rid of the flabbiness much quicker.
They also have more energy to exercise when the hormones are balanced. I also stress to them the importance of taking the 3 nutrition classes they teach at the clinic. They really set my clients straight on how they should be eating”
S. Talbot, Sandy, Utah
What a difference hormones make! I haven’t done the ‘menopause thing’ yet, but I know it’s coming soon. My PMS was so bad, I was scary! Little did I know that my progesterone was so low. I had used the creams from the health food store, but they were apparently much too weak for my low levels.
After two months on the bio-identical progesterone, I barely even knew I was pre-menstrual. I’m not on such an emotional roller-coaster now.”
Marie F. Provo, Utah
I’m 56 years old and my hormones were a mess. I had taken HRT for almost 10 years because my doctor said it would prevent cancer, heart disease and many other things. My sister then told me that the old HRT could actually be harmful. I got off them and went on the bio-identical hormones.
Now I don’t worry about side effects at all because they are all natural. My energy levels are much higher, and my incontinence is gone altogether. It’s nice that the natural hormones are so much cheaper, too.”
M. Decker, Las Vegas, NV
Who would have thought that I could have hormone problems? Here I am at 36 years old, mother of three beautiful little children, and yet I couldn’t cope with life. I had been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but none of the doctors could tell me what caused it. I was dragging all the time.
I was so stressed out and couldn’t keep up with anything. I was seeing a therapist who referred me to Dr. Jones to have my hormones evaluated. I was amazed when all the tests came back. Finally somebody could give me a reason for how I was feeling. My thyroid was extremely low.
Funny thing is, I had had it checked before and they told me it was okay. But they hadn’t checked the right things. Also I had a problem with my progesterone levels, which was why I was so emotionally drained all the time. After about 6 months on the right amount of natural hormones, I was so much better.
I still had a long way to go, but I could see light at the end of the tunnel. It’s all so different now.”
Marilyn S. Ogden, UT
Running a busy law practice is very demanding. I had done well for years. Then gradually I felt myself not caring as much. My wife told me I was grumpy all the time. I had always loved running—I even ran a marathon. But over about a two year period I lost my endurance. I felt pretty burned out about everything.
I had no enthusiasm for anything. Dr. Jones is a personal friend of mine, and I mentioned it to him one day. He told me I was going through something called ‘andropause’—or male menopause. So we had me tested and it said I had only a small amount of testosterone. So he put me on the natural, bio-identical testosterone.
It took a while to find the right dose, but when we did, my endurance returned. I hadn’t really realized that I had turned into a grumpy old man that didn’t want to do anything but watch sports on TV. Now the zest for living has returned.”
Paul H. Riverton, UT
I’d tell anyone about my experience with natural hormone therapy. It has made such a huge difference in my life, and in the life of my daughters. I was really skeptical at first, especially since I asked my family doctor about the Bio Identical hormones and he had never even heard of them.
So I looked them up on the Internet and found out tons. I didn’t believe in using drugs to cure anything. But I read that these new hormones are not drugs. It was at that point that I decided to try them. I felt so good after 6 months that I sent both of my adult daughters in for testing. Now they’re telling all their friends. I’m a believer!”
Nancy A. Park City, Utah
Fantastic. That’s how I would describe it. I was on PremPro for years. Then I saw on the news all about how those hormones were harmful for women. I talked to my pharmacist about the alternatives and he gave me Dr. Jones’ number. The rest is history.”
S. Halling, Salt Lake City
My doctor told me I was in ‘perimenopause’ at age 51. I was having irregular periods, mood swings, loss of sex drive and fatigue. I had also put on about 10 pounds that I could not seem to lose. After a lot of investigation, and reading the book by Suzanne Sommers, I decided to look for someone who could help me with the new bio-identical hormone therapy.
I was referred to Dr. Robert Jones at the Center for Hormone Therapy. I can’t say enough about what I learned and experienced by going on the “healthy hormones” as I call them. I would say that every one of my problems has gone away after taking the hormones.
I really didn’t know that hormonal imbalances could affect so many areas of my life. I don’t even have the ‘brain fog’ anymore. But probably the biggest thing that I have seen over the last few months is the overall increase my energy levels. I had tried vitamins, herbs, exercise (which exhausted me!) yoga—you name it.
Little did I know that it was a simple matter of low hormone levels. Dr. Jones said he was going to keep me at about a 40-year- old level of hormones. I’m loving that!
