How Sex Hormones Act on the Brain
Testosterone is a brain-boosting hormone that can improve mood, memory, and motivation.
Testosterone drops in women and men with age. This is most often caused by weight gain, lack of exercise, stress, and high-sugar diets.
However, the biggest reason I see low testosterone in men is insulin resistance. High belly fat drives insulin up and testosterone down. Men can lose hair on their bodies, grow breasts, and have rounded soft skin. It is because they are producing less testosterone and more estrogen.
Correcting insulin problems may naturally raise testosterone levels. This can be done by eating whole foods, cutting out sugar and flour, and building muscle.
A topical bio-identical testosterone may help with building muscle and bone. It may also help with weight loss, depression, mood swings, memory, concentration, and sexual function. Even women benefit from the use of bio-identical testosterone.
80 percent of the time simply changing your diet and lifestyle, detoxifying, addressing stress, and rebalancing all the other seven Keys to UltraWellness health will help you regain balance without taking hormones.
