Crazy Hormones Under Control
BHRT for Women & Stem Cells for Back Pain“Dr. Brandt has not only helped me get my crazy hormones under control, but he recently did a stem cell procedure on my back. As a result, I am able to function virtually pain free for the first time in months! Everyone at ThriveMD Vail also made me feel very comfortable and handled every detail of my appointments with professionalism and promptness.
Thank you, Dr. Brandt, Debi, Alison, and Sue!”

Thrilled with the Progress
“I am so happy to have found Thrive this past summer. After being told by 3 Dr’s that I need a knee replacement I was feeling very discouraged. 2 1/2 years ago I had a very bad skiing accident and destroyed my tibial plateau. After surgery and physical therapy I was no where near where I wanted to be functioning physically. I couldn’t hike, ski, or basically do anything active without constant pain. I went to Thrive and got my hormones balanced, got my energy level back up to where I like it to be and had several stem cell treatments on my knee. It was not an instant fix, but over the past 6 months it has continually started to feel better. I just skied 3 hard days in a row in Beaver Creek, with no swelling and very little pain! I am back to functioning at about 80% of my capacity. I’m thrilled with the progress and hope to continue to improve as I continue to be active this winter. I am so happy not to have a knee replacement and to be able to keep my own knee. Thank you Dr. Brandt.“

Walk Through Walls, All Day Long
“Dr Brandt’s medicine is life giving. It is not a band-aid and not a temporary fix. He manages my bio-identical hormone replacement long distance, and the result is life changing. I once stopped taking the supplements for several months, because I was curious, and I quicky fell back into difficult mornings and unbearable fatigue in late afternoons. When I went back to Dr Brandt’s carefully balanced supplementation plan, I again felt that I could walk through walls, all day long. I can only imagine how much better my academic and work performance might have been, had I had this option 10, 20, and 30 years ago.“

No More Osteopania
“Now that I’ve reached my very late 60’s I realize how lucky I am. Dr. Brandt has been treating me with HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) for 1 1/2 years and the results have been tremendous. I am now stronger more vibrant than ever. This season I skied 53 days without any incidents….just pure pleasure and always with a smile on my face. Life is certainly getting better with HRT. Dr. Brandt and his staff have been great. One of the most amazing things has been the result of my last bone density test. I went from osteopenia to NORMAL. Wow!. Thanks to Dr. Brandt and everyone at Thrive MD…..You are the Best!!!!!!“

Feeling Better than Ever
“Dr. Brandt is very knowledgeable in treating declining hormone levels. I feel better than ever. I thought feeling sluggish was part of aging. I was wrong. Now that I’m hormonally optimized, I have more energy and globally feel great. Dr. Brandt is warm and personable and cares about his patients.”

Why Is Just OK… OK?
“Did I need Hormone Replacement Therapy? Not me. Everything is OK. Dr. Brandt and his wonderful staff asked why is OK, OK? You can be better or great. Retired in December as I approached the 70 mark and wanted to see how I could ski this season. With HRT I skied 57 days at Vail with almost 750,000 feet of vertical. Stamina was great. Never tired or winded. Skied everything, including Highline from top to bottom. Thank you Dr. Brandt and team!!!!!“

Looking Better Than Years Ago
“I have worked with Scott Brandt, MD in various capacities since 1999. Since he now stays up in the mountains, I have entrusted my “aging” care to him as well as to some of my friends. Clinically trained friends and acquaintances to him for regenerative minimally invasive PRP and stem cell (with great success). Now as a patient of his in bioidentical hormones, I give him the highest rating possible. Everyone tells me I look better than I did years ago. Thank you, Dr. Brandt!“Joni from North Tonawanda, NY, LinkedIn, March 2014
Lower Cholesterol and Enjoying the Outdoors
“I came to Dr Brandt after fighting an escalating cholesterol problem compounded by a lack of testosterone in my system. After some analysis and looking into my current conditions Dr Brandt created a plan for my specific situation and it was put into motion. Today after my 6 week checkup I was talking with Dr Brandt about not realizing how lousy I originally felt with my very low testosterone situation and worrying about my cholesterol which seemed to keep rising even though I was adjusting my diet and exercise. Today I can say that my cholesterol went from 238 to 183 in 6 weeks and my testosterone levels continue to recover which has me feeling good again. The effect of his treatments has left me feeling solid and encouraged about my future and ability to keep enjoying the things I love to do outside! If you feel like you got run over by a bus every day, take some action. There is help available.

Having Fun Again
“Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say thank you! With the program we are on my energy levels, attitude and consistent emotional state of years past is returning. And, the difference has been noticed at work resulting in great reviews and a promotion. At my age that is really surprising and unexpected! I know it is a combination of your program, physical fitness and my work ethic but it was not coming together before. In fact it felt like it was falling apart at times.
I am having fun again at work and after work! So thank you for the help.”Charles from Little Rock, Arkansas, email, August 2013
64 & Feeling 40 Again
“My first visit with Dr. Scott Brandt at ThriveMD was in March, 2013 and today, July 24, 2013, I feel like a new woman. I am 64 years old and I feel 40 again! Not only do I have energy, my skin looks fabulous, my “menopot” is gone, I sleep like a baby, I feel sensous, alive, sexy and my brain is working again. In addition, my total cholesterol went down over 70 points!! My regular MD had been trying to put my on medication for that for several years but I kept arguing that something was wrong, I had never had high cholesterol….now with balanced bioidentical hormones, my numbers went down on their own because that is my normal state. I am not the average 64 year old any more. I am an optimal feel-like-40, 64 year young woman!!! Dr. Brandt is a caring, thoughtful, brilliant doctor, and for me, a Miracle Worker!! I am sending all my friends to him because we have been forgotten by the regular medical professionals and it’s time to take back our lives!!”Lynn from Vail Valley, Colorado, email, July 2013
Cholesterol, Statins & Homeopathics
“I think this is pretty amazing. Enclosed are copies of most recent blood tests going back to 7/31/10. My cholesterol kept creeping up even though I have eaten healthy and exercised most of my life. Although some of the drugs I take for RA, mainly Humira, can make these figures higher, I was still concerned about these numbers. Dr. McSteven prescribed statins, which I took for about 3 months and hated. Not only did my cholesterol not go down significantly, but my memory and ability to recall anything was totally diminished. Against Dr. McSteven’s advise, I quite taking statins.
This past summer I started on hormone therapy at ThriveMD and the homeopathic Cardiac Essentials from Vail Valley Pharmacy. Last week I had blood work done for a pre-op exam. The results are really astonishing. Everything was well within normal range –first time in years! I think it’s good to have first hand positive results (right there in blood and ink!) from one of your patients. Thank you all so much!”Marjorie from Vail Valley, Colorado, email, April 2013
“Before I could not walk at all for long periods of time and was in constant pain, having to take an assortment of medications. In less than 5 months I can walk and swelling is down to minimal. I can ride a bike again and my health is returning. Dr. Brandt was also able to help me with my thyroid and hormone problems.Don from Vail Valley, Colorado, email
Words cannot express my gratefulness to you and your staff.”
