Rejuvalife Vitality Institute - Los Angeles & Beverly Hills



You may have an imbalance in your brain chemistry if you are experiencing mood changes, fatigue, cognitive or memory impairment, mood changes, sexual dysfunction, or insomnia. Dr. Andre Berger, experienced Cosmetic Surgeon in Los Angeles, CA can test you for chemical balances, and can also prescribe treatments such as hormone replacement therapy, nutritional supplements, or dietary supplements to help treat brain fog.


There are four regions of the brain, each having a primary chemical or neurotransmitter that is responsible for specific brain functions. With deficient levels of these chemicals, you may see changes in motivation, mental acuity, and mood. Left untreated or ignored, these can develop into serious medical conditions that will require medical intervention . Contact Dr. Berger if you are experience symptoms of brain fog or imbalances in LA.

The primary neurotransmitters are serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and acetylcholine. These chemicals are derived from protein precursors or amino acids that can be obtained from diet and natural supplements. This combination—supplements and diet—in concert with hormone replacement therapy can reduce inflammation, restore and improve brain functions, repair nerve cells and prevent future damage.
