The XX Brain

release date: Jun 04, 2020
The XX Brain
Women are far more likely than men to suffer from anxiety, depression, migraines, brain injuries, strokes and Alzheimer''s disease. But, until recently, scientific research has focused on ''bikini medicine,'' assuming that women are essentially men with different reproductive organs. The XX Brain presents groundbreaking research showing that women''s brains age distinctly from men''s, due mostly to the decline of a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Taking on all aspects of women''s health, including brain fog, memory lapses, depression, stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances and the increased risk of dementia, Dr. Mosconi introduces cutting-edge, evidence-based methods for protecting the female brain, encompassing diet, stress reduction and sleep. She also examines the effectiveness of hormonal replacement therapy, addresses the perils of environmental toxins and explores the role of our microbiome. Luckily, it is never too late to take care of yourself.
