Is Your Brain “On Fire”?

03/   December, 2015

One of my patients recently cracked me up when she told me she is now known among her family as the one whose “brain is on fire”. What???

What she’s talking about is the mental sharpness that she has acquired from the well-rounded hormone balancing program that we have started doing together.
