How BHRT Can Help Banish Brain Fog in Men
Think brain fog only affects the elderly and menopausal women? Think again.
Women going through menopause, as well as men entering andropause, often experience brain fog and diminished concentration due to a significant decrease in levels of sex hormones testosterone and estrogen. Did you know BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) can be a viable and long-term solution to help clear the air? The most common symptoms of brain fog include:
- Inability to concentrate or get laser-focused on a task
- Inability to think clearly, strategize, or problem solve
- Chronic confusion
- Lack of motivation
- Mood swings
- Insomnia/difficulty attaining quality sleep/difficulty staying asleep
When it comes to age-related disorders and their frustrating symptoms, brain fog tops the list and is most associated with women and menopause. Here’s a heads-up: Men going through andropause (the male equivalent to menopause, also colloquially known as “manopause”) report experiencing the same challenging difficulties, including difficulty concentrating, lack of motivation, and diminishing mental acuity. If you’re a male aged 40 or older and suspect you’re going through andropause and have been struggling with bouts of the symptoms mentioned above, BHRT can help.
Hormones and the Male Mind
Testosterone and thyroid are the two primary hormones responsible for memory retention and healthy cognitive function in men. Deficiencies of these two crucial hormones during the onset of andropause causes the neurotransmitters in the brain to sometimes “misfire,” causing concentration difficulty/lack of focus as well as memory loss. Top it off with stress, which is regulated by the body’s cortisol hormone, and you’ve got the perfect formula for brain fog. While the release of some cortisol is not particularly harmful, too much of a good thing can lead to other undesirable consequences. The body functions optimally when all hormones are in harmony.
The BHRT Difference: Treatment You Don’t Have to Think About
BHRT is a safe, minimally invasive, and effective way of providing regulation and optimization of hormones to rejuvenate both the body and mind and help relieve symptoms associated with age-related disorders. The process is fast, easy, and long-lasting, too! Bioidentical hormones are plant-derived pellets custom-created by comprehensive labs following a patient’s proprietary 360-degreee medical analysis. Results of this analysis will help provide Dr. Setareh and the truMD team with recommendations best suited to meet a patient’s unique needs, whether in the form of hormone therapy (testosterone, thyroid, estrogen), supplements, IV therapy, or a combination of the three. Treating hormone imbalances is never a one-size-fits-all approach. Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones naturally produced by the body, making them safer and more efficacious than their traditional, synthetic counterparts, which are primarily derived from a pregnant mare’s urine. The pellets are gently inserted near the hip area during a quick, in-office visit that takes minutes. No scarring or downtime! You’re free to return to work or resume your daily activities. No more lathering messy creams, scary self-injections, or remembering to take pills, etc. BHRT provides long-lasting results, and most patients will begin to feel like themselves again – and get their “head” straight - in as little as two weeks after their first dosage.
If you’re a male who’s over 40 and have been experiencing any of the aforementioned symptoms, including difficulty sleeping and irritability, your hormones may be to blame.
