Dr. Shinn Featured on KRDO – Enjoy Valentine’s Day Year Round

Dr. Shinn was recently interviewed by Eric Singer on KRDO about Hormone Replacement Therapy.  

In the segment you’ll also meet Teri and Ted Skube who have both received hormone pellets who share this, “It almost feels like we’re in our 20′s and 30′s. We date all the time and we have a lot of romance together.”

Other great  points Anchor Eric Singer from KRDO shares:

  • “As we get older, over 35, we all experience less of the hormone.  That is the way our bodies are made,”  explains Dr. Shinn.
  • Teri was having painful hot flashes, low energy level and her memory wasn’t as razor sharp. 
  • “Within 12 hours, I felt relief and I didn’t have another hot flash again.  My weight is also more stable now.  I have a lot more energy and my memory is back.”
  • Ted Skube is also on the pellet therapy.  He told Eric he also felt more energy and feels stronger.  He can see it in his golf game, “You start to have that jump in your step and other players start noticing.”
  • Dr. Shinn says, “I’m having people crying and saying their life has changed and they have regained their lives.  This is most gratifying.”

How is your Valentine’s Day going?

Unless you are a teenager who is freshly in love, it is hard not to get cynical on Valentine’s Day.  Heart-shaped cards along with “flowers, chocolates, promises you don’t intend to keep” clog the day and the rampant commercialism blurs the supposedly original intent of the day, which was to celebrate courtly love or any romantic love.

When was the last time you were truly in love or felt romantically inclined?  Even if you are already in a relationship (married or otherwise), it is rare to experience that “in love” feeling.

It is often said that women have sex in between the ears.  But it is similar for men as well.  There is nothing more seductive than the adoring eyes of a woman who seems to think that you are the best thing in the world – most handsome, gentle, considerate, manly, etc. 

Same goes for women.  A woman may be ticked off by a man’s display of sexual prowess, status, or looks but would swoon for a man who looks at you with tender eyes that say that you are the most desired one in the world.

When we are in love, we want to spend a lot of time with the loved one, get to know the person, and do things for him/her that are pleasing to them.   All these acts of love require energy and time.  In order to give our loved ones that deep attention and signs of love, we have to be in a fit shape first.

When we are constantly tired, forever behind the chores/to-do lists (either at work or at home), and mostly irritated due to lack of sleep and increasing stress, it is nearly impossible to spare the time and energy to be “in love” with others. 

But any amount of candies or flowers won’t replace the true signs of love that we so crave.

So, check your own health first.

Are you, by any chance, suffering from the hormone deficiencies that might be the cause of all the symptoms that I listed above?  There is a high probability that you would benefit from getting your hormone levels checked and have your hormones properly balanced, if you are over 35.

We all experience less hormone production as we age, but if you insist on doing more work and flog your body more when your own native hormone levels are low, you will experience hormone deficient symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, insomnia, difficulty losing weight, memory fog, as well as hot flashes and loss of libido.

Once you have your hormone balanced and replaced, you will recover from any symptoms that might have been due to hormone insufficiency.  And you will most likely regain your old composure and generosity of time and energy that is required for falling in love.

So, go get your hormone balanced and plan on falling in love all over again with your loved one.  Then suddenly you wouldn’t get so cynical on the Valentine’s Day.

Couple Goes from Low Energy to the Best They’ve Felt in 10 Years

Meet Teri (50) and Ted (52) Skube

Teri had been suffering from hot flashes every 8 – 10 minutes for 2 years.  As you can imagine, this was interrupting her sleep.

Ted didn’t feel right and he wasn’t sleeping well.  He had started to lose energy and didn’t even feel like playing his beloved game of golf.

They both received hormone pellets from Dr. Rina Shinn and the effects were immediate.  As a married couple, they both had more energy for dinners out with friends and vacations.  There wasn’t any more tension between the two of them and their libido and sex life was the best it had been in 10 years.

Hormone Therapy has been shown to improve lethargy, depression, loss of libido, hot flashes, improve insomnia, sex drive, libido, night sweats, palpitations, headaches, irritability, depression, memory loss, aches, pains, and vaginal dryness.

With Tianna Galgano

Certified Hypnotherapist



Thursday,  Feb. 21st  –  5:30 p.m. RSVP to 719-543-5000





  • Is a craving overriding your will power?


  • Are you craving carbs, sugar-filled foods, junk food, or salty snacks?


  • Do you hate giving in, knowing that it keeps the weight on?


If you have cravings, your brain is working against you.


In our next  BE A SLIMMER HEALTHIER YOU group gathering you will learn the body-science for why stress makes you crave unhealthy foods.  




Tianna will show you how to change your brain patterns to make your brain work for you, so you can achieve your best weight.


Tianna will give you a simple method to help you LOSE YOUR TASTE FOR AN UNHEALTHY FOOD. This method will also give your subconscious mind a way to choose something healthier.


Your subconscious mind rules.  That is why sheer will power doesn’t work. The subconscious is either substituting food for love, or is trying to relieve stress, or both.


Each meeting is a $60 value, but you can attend for FREE. RSVP to 719-543-5000


Adonis weight-loss support group meets at least once a month. Attending these meetings at no extra charge is part of your Adonis Premium Package.


It is to your advantage to attend every gathering because each one will introduce a new and different method for having the slimmer body you want.
