Can Estrogen Help Your Memory Loss

Written by Dr. Sandra Miranda, ND

Is your memory failing you? Do you walk into a room and forget why you went there? Are those darn keys never where you thought you left them? Have you even asked yourself if you are developing Alzheimer’s or dementia? If you answered yes to any of these questions – trust me, you are not alone!

Sometimes this loss of memory can interfere with our work and our daily activities.  As we age and as our hormones change our body (including our brain) can go through chemical and physical changes.

One major change to the body that may occur starting in our 40s is a reduction of hormonal levels – more specifically estrogen!  As your body’s estrogen levels decrease then this important hormone cannot stimulate brain function anymore resulting in short-term memory.  With time, it can also lead to anxiety, depression, hot flashes and sleep disturbances. 

Why is this important to us as a society? Because we are expecting close to 25% of the population to be over the age of 45 years old by 2026.  This means that almost half of them will be going through either peri-menopause or menopause.

Studies show the following:

  • Longer duration of both endogenous estrogen and bio-identical hormone (BiEst) use were associated with prevention of age related cognitive decline.
  • Starting Bio-identical hormones (combination of BiEst and natural progesterone) within 5 years of menopause onset was associated with better late life cognitive function compared with delayed initiation of bio-identical hormones.

You don’t need to suffer unnecessarily.  We now have the science to help you with natural therapies.

If you are wondering if you are a good candidate for bio-identical hormones, the call us for a free 10 minute “Meet&Greet” at 905-239-3900.  We are happy to help!
