Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is now recognized as a causative factor for hormonal deficiencies associated with personality changes. Psychological, physiological, and physical manifestations like; depression, anxiety, mood swings, bouts of anger, memory loss, inability to concentrate, learning disabilities, sleep deprivation, increased risk for heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, loss of libido, menstrual irregularities, pre-mature menopause, obesity, loss of lean body mass, muscular weakness, and a number of other medical conditions can arise subsequent to head trauma.
Conventional medications (antidepressants, anti-anxiety, anti-seizure, anti-psychotic, and narcotics) do nothing to address the underlying causes that create the symptoms associated with TBI (Post-Concussion Syndrome) because they do not replenish the missing neurosteroids (brain hormones). Many individuals under conventional treatment become further dysfunctional from the over-load of medications used for treating the superficial complaints (masking).
Take some time and review the medical articles that are being published addressing and acknowledging the association between TBI and Hormonal Dysfunction. Dr. Mark L. Gordon was the first to provide this relationship on national television after 8 years of sharing the information that already existed. Dr. Gordon is presently lecturing to other physicians both nationally and internationally on Interventional Endocrinology and in May 2015, launched a lecture series based upon his recent book entitled:
