Women going through the early stages of menopause often can feel a little confused. Dr. Oz described it as "brain fog" and the symptoms can include memory loss, fuzzy thinking. Causes: Hormonal shifts. Estrogen receptors in the brain are not activated when estrogen levels decline. As a result, you tend to forget more and experience other lapses in brain function. How to fix the problem: Reduce hormonal swings - Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (that's where we come in!) Get good sleep (Hormone therapy can help stabilize your sleep patterns) Maintain a good diet - Include Omega-3s (Discuss your supplement program with Dr. Moore) Exercise (including cardio and strength training).
