Brain fog is when you feel distracted or unmotivated—and you struggle to concentrate on everyday tasks. It’s a symptom rather than a medical condition.
Brain fog isn’t usually serious but can be linked to other conditions, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, thyroid problems and digestive disorders. It can also be triggered by poor diet, lack of sleep, stress and environmental toxins.
Each person’s experience of brain fog and feeling a ‘bit off’ will be different. Understanding the true cause is a vital step in reclaiming your mental clarity and focus.
Lots of things can contribute to brain fog:
This enables bacteria and other toxins to leak into your bloodstream. The resulting immune reaction and inflammation can impact cognitive function.
This can have a profound effect on brain function. It can also contribute to poor memory.
Our gut bacteria are in constant communication with our brain. If we have an imbalance in our bacteria, it can affect cognitive function.
This can cause a blood-sugar high and then a crash, contributing to low concentration.
Poor sleep can leave us low in energy and foggy-headed, making it difficult to concentrate.
Our thyroid hormones communicate with every cell in our body. Imbalances can influence our mood and ability to make decisions.
Healthpath was the best thing I’ve ever done! I struggled for 2 years before I found them, and I couldn’t be more happy knowing I now have a plan going forward.
Amazing company. They look at you as an individual. This is the way medicine should be practiced, instead of just handing out things to plaster over your symptoms.
Completely impressed with the service I received from HealthPath, very easy to follow information neatly presented and their advice seems to be helping. Thank you!
These three simple steps can help to combat brain fog:
Poor sleep quality can influence mood and memory. Make rest a priority, reduce exposure to devices prior to bed and aim for 7–8 hours of slumber each night.
Food that quickly raises your blood sugar creates a roller-coaster effect, dramatically influencing your ability to focus. Reduce sweet and starchy foods and fill up on protein instead.
Studies show that mindfulness—being present in the moment—can improve mental clarity.
