This week DrG talks with Dr. Mark Gordon, MD expert in hormone replenishment therapy, and a pioneer in uncovering the science behind TBI (traumatic brain injury) and hormonal deficiencies. Through his work, he has saved hundreds of veterans from suicide, and helped many other people regain their quality of life.
In this episode they cover:
-DrG’s story of his dad and the effects of his stroke
-TBIs and neuroendcrionlogy (brain chemistry). Brain injury = brain inflammation = brain dysfunction & depletion of neurosteroids
-Testosterone’s effects on the body and brain. How it can help Alzheimer’s disease
-Dr. Gordon’s journey into hormone replacement, and into brain injury and hormonal deficiency
-Psychiatric illness (anxiety, depression, ADHD, and more) and hormones
-How you don’t need to have a “big” brain trauma like a concussion or big accident to have brain trauma
-Do women need testosterone?
-Low testosterone and sleep disturbances
-Do hormones cause cancer?
-Brain injury can continue to worsen for 17 years after the injury
-What to do if you or someone you know has a head injury to protect them
-Is PTSD due to brain trauma that wasn’t treated?
-A veteran who went from suicidal and hospitalized to thriving with appropriate hormone treatment
-Hormones for treating substance abuse
-Hormones for treating treatment resistant anxiety and depression
