Memory Loss | Brain Fog

MedHealth 360

A major cause of brain fog or memory loss is a decrease in hormones with age

Memory slips become more common as we age. Do you have those moments when you are in the middle of a sentence and the rest of it is forgotten? Maybe you were heading up the stairs in your home and you can’t remember what you were going to get? Or, perhaps people’s names are lost in the moment and the names of things become ‘thingy’. It could be all these memory loss moments are happening and it can be alarming. As the slips begin to increase, many of us worry about that it is the start of something serious such as  dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. These slips may, however, be nothing more than minor changes to your hormone levels or even your lifestyle. 

A major cause, and one that can easily be ruled out is the decrease in essential hormones due to aging. Two of the most essential hormones that support the imprinting and recall of memories include testosterone and thyroid hormone. Estrogen is also important in women. Cortisol that becomes elevated with stress is also important, it leads to that flight or fight situation that automatically puts you into survival mode and shuts down things that the body doesn’t deem important.

At MedHealth 360 we strongly believe that stabilizing hormone levels could increase quality of life, self-confidence and overall well-being.

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.

The mild memory loss that men and women experience at the onset of andropause and menopause is almost always reversible. However, if left unchecked, memory loss can become a bigger problem. Studies suggest that unhealthy hormone levels are a contributing factor to brain conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.

When it comes to your health, you cannot address one area without addressing the others. They are all interconnected. This is why many patients fail simple diet and nutrition programs for example. If their hormone levels are low, or they don’t exercise, or muscle pain and stiffness prevent them from moving properly, they will ultimately gain weight.

Why Replace Estrogen?

Many if not most of the problems associated with menopause and low estrogen levels could be addressed simply with estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) using synthesized estrogen or bioidentical hormones.

Estrogen replacement therapy has been somewhat controversial because of the risks that are associated with taking ERT. Some studies show there is a slight increase in stroke risk, breast cancer, blood clots and side effects such as swollen breasts, headache and nausea. But there are plenty of positives to taking estrogen replacement therapies – it can lower your risk of osteoporosis and help with the unpleasant symptoms of menopause.

Traditional estrogen replacement therapy uses synthetic estrogens that do not completely resemble human estrogen. That is where bioidentical hormones come in.  As the name implies, bioidentical estrogen is identical to human estrogen and the vast majority of scientific findings report that it is safe and effective in treating women who suffer from low estrogen levels. 

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are synthetic hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to the hormones produced by your body.  Common hormone treatments include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone replacement.  Generic forms are available, but compounded hormones can be synthesized to specifically target an individuals needs.  These compounded bioidentical hormones are safer for patients when prescribed by a reputable physician who understands that not all patients are created equal.

Traditional estrogen replacement therapy uses synthetic estrogens that do not completely resemble human estrogen. That is where bioidentical hormones come in.  As the name implies, bioidentical estrogen is identical to human estrogen and the vast majority of scientific findings report that it is safe and effective in treating women who suffer from low estrogen levels. 

The Benefits of Bioidentical Estrogen vs Traditional Estrogen Replacement

Bioidentical Estrogen Therapy offers many benefits to women over traditional Hormone Replacement Therapies.  

  • Bioidentical Estrogen Therapy uses hormones that are bioidentical, this means the hormones are the exact same molecular structure as the naturally occurring human hormones.

  • Bioidentical hormones are found in nature and are derived from plants such as soy and yam. HRT uses hormones synthesized from the urine of pregnant mares. Bioidentical Pellet Therapy for women uses hormones that are more natural to the human body and can often result in fewer negative side effects than those often prescribed by conventional physicians. 

  • Bioidentical Estrogen Therapy offers a convenient benefit for women as the pellets remain in the body and release a steady state of hormones that the body requires. In comparison other hormone replacement therapy options such as oral, cream and gels that can be inconsistent in their delivery resulting in a rollercoaster effect in many Women.

Are Bioidentical Hormones Safe?

There are risks in taking any form of hormonal therapy replacements, both bioidentical and more traditional versions. It can increase the risk of blood clots, stroke, gallbladder disease and certain evidence has suggested an increased risk of breast cancer. 

These are the risks for estrogen in general and the risks exist whether a woman undergoes hormone replacement or not.  HRT has been connected to an increased risk for certain types of cancers, especially breast cancer. The studies that discovered a link between HRT and breast cancer refer to women being treated with synthetic HRT, not bioidentical HRT.  However, there are no studies that show that bioidentical HRT is any safer than synthetic HRT. The risk of breast cancer increases the longer a woman engages in any type of HRT, and the risk decreases once HRT is stopped. That is why it is important to undertake any hormone replacement therapy only on the advice of a qualified doctor. The advice is generally use in small doses and for the shortest amount of time possible

Lose weight | Increase Energy | Mental Acuity

Although they are not naturally produced by the body, you body recognizes them as the same, and biochemically reacts to them with the same effect. The many symptoms of menopause can be alleviated with BHRT. You can say goodbye to hot flashes, mood swings, mental fog and more. Using our Med-Health360 program you can also control your weight, increase your energy levels and feel good both inside and out.

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!
