Brain Fog from Hormone Imbalance

Brain Fog! Forgetting what you were going to do next!

Inability to concentrate! Lack of desire to do anything!

Just flat out feel like you are loosing your mind!!!

According to Dr. Thierry Hertoghe, In the Hormone Solution, deficiencies in cortisol, DHEA, estrogen hormones, melatonin, progesterone, testosterone  and thyroid exhibit the most common brain-related symptoms, including memory loss, poor concentration and confusion.

WOW! What a good thing to know!

You aren’t going crazy.  Your hormones just need to get back in balance.

Look closely at what some of these hormones are responsible for.

Estrogen– promotes networking among brain cells,  increase mood regulating neurotransmitters, increases the density of neurotransmitters, maintains nerve health, reduces inflammation and promotes brain cell growth.

Testosterone– Strengthens the arteries in the brain and may influence our ability to perform different thinking tasks. According to dr. Hertoghe, men and women that have higher levels of testosterone than their peers, have higher spatial skills. Women who excel in math usually have higher levels of testosterone.

Pregnenolone– the memory hormone.  Dr. Hertoghe states that pregnenolone works as a neurotransmitter to clarify thinking, promote concentration, and prevent memory loss. It is concentrated in the brain about 75 times greater than in the blood. It is a precursor to many other hormones, therefore even the slightest deficiency can cause other hormones to be  become out of balance.

Are you aware of what you are doing that is even throwing them off?

Here are some things that may be negatively affecting your hormone levels.

  • Processed foods such as flours and sugars
  • Bad sleeping habits
  • Lack of exercise or physical activity
  • Smoking and alcohol consumption
  • High levels or continual stress
  • Negative thinking
  • Environmental toxins

Maybe do a little inventory on your daily life.

Do you need help getting these any of these under control?

Choose one thing at a time.  Write down your steps to get it under control.

Be patient and loving toward yourself as your body starts to find balance.

Once in balance, the body knows how to take care of itself.  It is an amazing process.

Get excited for a clear mind as you allow the fog to dispense!
