Ladies, are you searching for the right answers for your health symptoms? Do you want natural solutions to work with your body to bring you back to optimal health?
Women’s health requirements differ from that of men in many ways. Some serious health challenges faced by women are not only breast cancer, anemia, and gynecological problems, but also symptoms of hormone decline such as fatigue, difficulty losing weight, poor concentration, short-term memory loss, anxiety, insomnia, menstrual irregularities, loss of sexual inclination, chronic infections, muscle and joint pain, hair loss, and many more.
Ensuring that a woman can enjoy the right to health in all her diversity, concrete action is needed. Hence it is time to empower women by providing the best natural health solutions, on their terms. Women are keen on their symptoms and take more time to understand the complexities that occur in their bodies over time.
It is also very important for doctors to take the time to listen to their women patients. It is no longer good enough to tell women their symptoms are normal and due to aging and maturing. Women are smarter than that and have begun to question traditional medicine and traditional approaches to solutions. It has become evident that there is a need to combine medical care with hospitality to ensure that women receive extraordinary service and care.
One such health and wellness center is Hotze Health & Wellness Center, headquartered in Katy (Houston area), Texas, positioned as a world-renowned leader in functional medicine since 1989, and provides natural treatment without pharmaceutical drugs.
In this health and wellness center, doctors and providers are changing the way women and men are treated using bioidentical hormones and so much more. While the Hotze Health & Wellness Center is in the Houston area of Texas, guests visit them from across the nation and around the world. Only the initial visit needs to be in person. Subsequent visits can be by phone or video conference with their team of professionals.
We, at Insights Care, have talked with Steven F. Hotze, M.D., Founder and CEO of Hotze Health & Wellness Center, to learn more about the functional medicine practice and its journey. Following are the highlights of the interview:
“We have been positioned as a world-renowned leader in functional medicine since 1989. We treat the whole body naturally, getting to the root cause of symptoms without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. We listen to our patients, whom we call our guests.”
Steven F. Hotze, M.D. is the Founder and CEO of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, International, Physicians Preference Vitamins and Physicians Preference Pharmacy, International, LLC.
Dr. Hotze received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School at Houston in 1976. He completed a surgical internship at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Houston, and then entered the practice of emergency medicine.
Dr. Hotze is a member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and is a former member and former president of the Pan American Allergy Society. Dr. Hotze is also a member of The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).
In 1981, Dr. Hotze opened his Family and Occupational Medical practice in North Houston. In 1989, he established the Hotze Health & Wellness Center in the Katy (Houston), Texas area. Dr. Hotze grew from practicing conventional medicine, which used surgery and pharmaceutical drugs, to actively listening to his patients and treating the root cause of their symptoms through natural approaches.
The Hotze Health & Wellness Center considers itself to be in the hospitality industry first, and within that context, provides medical care to its guests. The professional staff partners with the guests to coach them on a path of health and wellness, naturally, so that as they mature, they are brimming with energy, vitality, and enthusiasm for life.

- Hormones, Health, and Happiness
- Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness
- Do A 180
- The Proven Prescription
In Hormones, Health, and Happiness, Dr. Hotze says:
“For an acute illness, the drug approach may be appropriate. However, patients with chronic ailments never really get well by taking drugs. How can they? Chronic illness and disease are not caused by deficiencies of prescription drugs.”

Our providers are changing the way women and men are treated using bioidentical hormones and a combination of vitamin and mineral replacement, a lifestyle nutrition program and allergy resolutions – all when indicated.
Our goal is the prevention of illness by increasing energy levels and strengthening our guests’ immune system. We have helped over 33,000 women and men obtain health and wellness, naturally, without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.”

We combine our medical care with hospitality to ensure that our guests receive extraordinary service and care. This approach differentiates us from our competitors and gives our guests the proper care they need. People visit our wellness center from all over the world,” adds Dr. Hotze.
Opinions that Matter
When asked for his opinion on how the adoption of modern technologies like AI and ML are impacting healthcare and how the company is adapting to the change, Dr. Hotze explains, “There is certainly a place for AI and ML in the medical industry. However, at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center, we decided a long time ago that ‘listening’ to our guests and understanding their clinical symptoms is key to getting to the root cause.
Of course, we utilize sophisticated blood tests and other key testing, but I can’t tell you how many times a guest comes to us – often as a last resort – because other doctors have told them, ‘Your symptoms are all in your head,’ or ‘What do you expect? You’re getting older, and these things will happen.’ I wholeheartedly disagree. There are reasons for every symptom, and a doctor and medical professional must take the time and care to get to the root cause. Prescription drugs only mask symptoms.
If you are 50 and can feel like you did when you were 30, would you prefer that? If you are 60 and could feel 40, wouldn’t that be nice? Well, you can. Our hormone levels decline as we age, but there is a solution with bioidentical hormones to replace those lost hormones to increase energy and give you back that zest for life. We don’t take the easy road at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center. Caring for your health is a commitment and we have been dedicated to helping our guests since 1989.”
“We continually refine our processes and offerings to ensure that our guests receive the finest care available. Our goal is to work hand-in-hand with our guests along their health journey, as we know it is a commitment and investment on their part.
“I’m always looking forward. When I’m not satisfied with the quality, the potency, or the standards for the recommendations we provide to our guests, I do everything in my ability to make that right. This is a key reason why I founded Physicians Preference Vitamins and my own compounding pharmacy, Physicians Preference Pharmacy, International. Rather than meeting the bare minimum required by law, we have self-imposed standards that go above and beyond what many of our certifications and accreditations require.
This is why my compounding pharmacy is one of the best in the nation. Bioidentical hormones, which are identical to the hormones made by your body, are different than synthetic hormones and bioidentical hormones are what we utilize in our practice.
We compound them ourselves in our pharmacy, so our guests know the dosage we recommend is the dosage they get. We test other pharmacies’ compounded prescriptions frequently and they simply do not match our potency standards and delivery.”
“As I look forward, my goal is continuous research and learning in my industry for the benefit of my guests. For example, in the treatment of allergies, I moved from injections and daily/weekly drops to state-of-the-art LDI (Low Dose Immunotherapy) sublingual treatments. It has been life-changing for women, men and children suffering from allergies. With just 7-8 treatments in a year’s time, and for most, after a period of three years, allergies are fully relieved and, in many cases, resolved.”
“We also brought in my newest HRP (Hotze Restorative Protocol™) injection and IV treatments for joint pain that so many of our guests experience as a result of aging or past injuries. Injections directly into the joints help best in these situations. IV’s can assist with the prevention and resolution of a plethora of health concerns where the body’s cells require support. This is a cellular repair treatment that is a natural restorative approach versus masking the pain with prescription drugs that cause more side effects. It is groundbreaking and can help our guests live a better life and, in some cases, avoid invasive surgery. I continue to look for alternative approaches, such as energy medicine which we are evaluating as of the writing of this article, and services to assist our guests and to help people get well naturally, thrive, and live their best life,” said Dr. Hotze.
