This week we are going to cover the Sex (your hormones) Drugs (medication reactions and interactions) and Rock and Roll (staying up to late) of memory issues and how that effect you.

Sex hormones are well known to affect your memory. Studies have shown that memory issues in women pre-menopausal are not as often reported as during peri and post-menopausal women. Let’s not leave the men out low testosterone is also associated with memory decline. So what can you do about it? Get your hormones tested, if your issue is hormonal there maybe an easy dietary change you can make, herbs or possibly hormone replacement therapy. Any of those things can help you get your memory mojo back!

Drugs are polypharmacy (meaning more than one drug interacting with one another) as well as drug reactions can affect your memory. Some of those drugs are needed for your quality and quantity of life. We are not suggesting you get all off all of your medication. You should how ever take some time to ask your pharmacist some questions about the medication you are on. In addition to talking to your pharmacist consider genetic testing when available to see if your medication is right for you. Ironically anti-depressants and drugs for anxiety are two of the biggest culprits for memory loss. We provide genetic testing to see if you are on the right medication.
