Have you ever walked into the garage or kitchen — and then completely forgot why you went there in the first place?
Or just wandered aimlessly around the parking lot after you couldn’t remember where you left your car?
These little brain hiccups can be absolutely terrifying as we get older. We start to worry about dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and even losing our independence.
If you want to do everything you can to protect your brain, there’s a simple therapy that can keep you mentally sharp and preserve your memories.
And the sooner you get started, the better.
New research out of Norway shows that starting a hormone replacement regimen can help increase the size of important parts of your brain and protect you against the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
According to the study, women who took estrogen supplements before the start of menopause and for at least three years had better-preserved structure of the brain’s hippocampus region.
That’s the part of the brain that stores memory and keeps you
clear-headed and balanced. In Alzheimer’s, the hippocampus becomes damaged and causes memory loss and disorientation.
The scientists found that women who underwent HRT therapy had hippocampus sizes that were 2 to 3 percent larger than the women who did not have the treatment.
And, believe it or not, that’s enough to make a real difference.
Now here’s the caveat: Some hormone replacement therapy CAN be bad for you. But those are the synthetic hormones sold by Big Pharma, produced from the urine of pregnant horses, and administered in doses that are 1,000 times more than your body can handle!
That’s why I recommend natural bioidentical hormones to safely replace what your body lost. You see, bioidentical hormones closely copy nature by using natural molecules that match up with the receptors already found in your body, and in concentrations that your body would normally produce.
If you’re interested in getting your hormone levels checked and replaced, the best way is to find a competent doctor who is skilled in natural medicine and can customize your therapy to match the needs of your body.
