Poor concentration, foggy thinking and forgetfulness are often erroneously attributed to simply getting older. It is true these things are more common as people age but many times they are due to specific reasons. Poor nutrition, fatigue, lack of sleep, lack of supplementation with proper vitamins and nutrients and hormonal imbalance are all treatable causes of concentration difficulties. Before assuming lack of concentration is inevitable as one ages, all possible causes should be evaluated and treated. These symptoms can range in severity from being slightly frustrating to affecting one’s ability to function effectively in daily life.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy along with proper diet, stress reduction, exercise and appropriate nutritional supplements can improve concentration.
