Brain Fog? It Could be Caused by Your Hormones

Constantly wondering what was that final item on your grocery list? Or how about your new neighbor’s name?  Thinking you are losing your mind because you can’t remember? Perimenopause symptoms may be to blame.

If you’re between the ages of 35 and 50 and you are having trouble thinking clearly, it could be a sign of perimenopause, especially if you are experiencing any of these other perimenopause symptoms.

Dr. Marina Rose uses Functional Medicine, a safe and natural approach to help women with hormone imbalances and other challenging and chronic health conditions in and around the city of Sunnyvale, CA.

 

The medical community is now catching up with women’s experiences and acknowledging that “fuzzy thinking,” is a perimenopause symptom, according Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Mike Roizen. In their article on the topic of mental clarity and perimenopause, the two doctors discuss how working memory changes along with the hormonal shift of menopause to add up to foggy thoughts.

 

Brain fog doesn’t have to be an inevitable reality of perimenopause. You can use functional medicine to address the underlying causes. There may be blood sugar issues or adrenal problems that are contributing to brain fog. Here are some simple steps to help balance your hormones that anyone can do regardless of the cause:

  • Eat good fats, especially the omega-3 fatty acids found in cold water fish, seeds and walnuts.
  • Keep a bedtime ritual to help you unwind and get a good night’s rest.
  • Take walks more often to support hormone balance.
