21 Aug How BHRT Can Lift Your Brain Fog
Brain fog is a very real and very serious issue. It is depicted by a clouding of the consciousness, irritability, lack of focus confusion and impaired judgment. While it may not seem like a big deal to those who have never experienced brain fog, but brain fog can completely impact your life and your ability to perform even the simplest of daily activities.
Brain fog can make it difficult to recall names, places or even words and make completing your work or even remembering to cook dinner a challenge. In most situations, there are very few medications that can actually help reverse brain fog.
What many people don’t realize is that hormonal imbalances can actually contribute to this brain fog and to these serious symptoms. 1This is why, according to one study, at least 60 percent of women report memory issues as they go through menopause. 1Research on these hormonal imbalances have found that optimizing estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels can help patients who are experiencing brain fog.
This is where BHRT comes in. BHRT, or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, this treatment promises to be a “natural” solution to addressing hormone issues. It is designed to treat men and women when their hormone levels become unbalanced or drop. These hormones are derived from plant estrogen that is chemically identical to the estrogen that the human body creates. It has become a popular solution for women who are going through menopause or perimenopause to help with different symptoms such as mood swings, or brain fog, while many men use BHRT to increase their testosterone levels to help with mood, brain fog, memory issues and low libido.
The great thing about bioidentical hormones is because they are designed to mimic your body’s existing hormones, so there are very few side effects of using these treatments. Depending on your individual preference and the recommendation of your healthcare provider, you can choose to take these hormones in a variety of forms. This includes pills, patches, creams, injections and pellets.
