Memory Loss in Women

Lose weight | Increase Energy | Mental Acuity

Aging is a complex process.  And you are a complex person.  That is why tradition medicine fails most patients when it comes to helping you live a healthier and fruitful life.  Med-Health 360 integrates nutritional counseling, physical fitness, and hormone replacement under direct supervision.  This is your prescription for success.   

Understanding Memory Loss in Women With Age

Do you sometimes get stuck mid-sentence because you can’t find the right word? Or maybe the wrong word pops out before you can stop it. Or you run into a coworker at the grocery store, and suddenly can’t remember her name.

Don’t worry—you aren’t going crazy. Losing your train of thought and drawing mental blanks are common during menopause and perimenopause—as are an inability to concentrate, and generally feeling fuzzy headed.

Common Hormonal Reasons for Memory Loss in Women

While inconvenient, and sometimes even embarrassing, memory loss during menopause is almost always indicative of hormone imbalance.

Estrogen and Progesterone
Estrogen and progesterone are both neurotransmitters that affect key portions of the brain devoted to memory.

Estrogen also helps to dilate blood vessels in the brain. Dilated blood vessels mean better blood flow. Better blood flow means better brain function. And better brain function means better memory, clearer thinking, and a greater ability to concentrate.

According to Dr. Pamela Wartian Smith, a well known women’s health expert, “Memory issues with women = estrogen and progesterone.”

Thyroid
Low thyroid is also common during menopause, and can have a detrimental effect on memory and concentration.

Stress and Cortisol
Hormone imbalance causes numerous changes that can cause stress. You might be having hot flashes. Or perhaps you’ve gained weight. You might be depressed or anxious, or you may have insomnia. Any one or all of these can be stressful.

So what does stress have to do with where you put your car keys? The answer is this: everything. Stress causes your body to release cortisol, and excess cortisol negatively impacts memory.

Treatment for Hormone Related Memory Loss in Women

Don’t tolerate forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating, or an inability to think clearly. Our doctors can develop a hormone replacement program that will help you regain your mental acuity. Other treatment options might include growth hormone therapy, injectable nutrients, and nootropics geared toward brain preservation. Say goodbye to brain fog. Say hello to the new you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has actually been used in the United States since 1938. Bio-identical Hormones are all natural plant based products made from yams and a small amount of soy. These hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones produced within our own bodies. There are numerous studies worldwide that document the benefits and safety of BHRT. These studies also report a lower incidence of side effects when compared with prescription drugs. BHRT should not be confused with “synthetic hormones which are typically found in many creams, gels and injectables used for hormone replacement.

BHRT is a short, simple in-office procedure using local anesthesia. Your doctor will insert the pellets into the fatty layer just beneath your skin. In men and women, a small incision is made in the buttocks or in the lower abdomen. The process is painless and takes just a few minutes.

One of greatest advantages of pellet therapy is the low incidence of side effects. Although extremely rare, side effects may include: slight bruising, minor bleeding, infection or extrusion of the pellets.

Your doctor will interpret your blood tests and determine an appropriate dosage specifically designed for your body. Women who receive estrogen can feel significantly better in 24-36 hours. Men and women who receive testosterone will start to feel relief of symptoms in 10-14 days. After your pellet insertion, you should avoid vigorous exercise for a few days as directed by your physician. Your doctor will evaluate your hormone levels on an ongoing basis and monitor any future changes needed.

You can obtain BHRT Pellets by scheduling an appointment with a trained, certified physician who specializes in hormonal therapy. In order to obtain the correct dosage and proper placement of the pellets, the doctor should be knowledgeable and specifically trained in pellet therapy!
