Are you a female going through hormonal imbalances?
New research shows that the uterus may play a vital role in the brain’s working memory. This is important to know because, if a female undergoes a hysterectomy, her brain will also be affected. The vagus nerve, which connects the brain with other organs, plays a key role in how gut health can impact brain health.
The back-and-forth communication between the uterus and the brain also affects brain health. As unwanted as they may be, an oophorectomy and/or hysterectomy are medically necessary for specific conditions. Women can use bioidentical hormone therapy in the case of an ovary removal, but not for a hysterectomy.
Since the uterus communicates with the brain via the vagus nerve, it cannot be replaced when removed.
The female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone are a vital part of brain health. If you are experiencing brain-based symptoms linked to estrogen deficiency, such as memory loss, anxiety, depression, and insomnia, please contact our office to see how you can take a holistic approach.
