BRAIN FOG?! What IS it? Do I have it? Why? Find OUT!

“Brain Fog” is not a medical condition or a diagnosis. It is a term used for a cluster of symptoms that affect your ability to think sharply.

Common Symptoms

Common Symptoms include forget fullness- words, names, missing appointments, fatigue, distraction, moodiness or just feeling “off your game”.

Ever ask yourself why you walked into a room? Ever look desperately for your glasses and they are on your head? How about searching for your keys for 20 minutes only to find them in your hand?  Well, you are certainly not alone, at least not in my circle of friends and families!

All of these are affected by our very fast “pace” lifestyle, overly processed foods, physical inactivity and factory farmed processed meats.

Causes

  • Pregnancy and hormone shifts
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Medications
  • Cancer treatments
  • Menopause
  • Chronic Fatigues Syndrome
  • Underactive thyroid
