What is brain fog?

It is not a medical condition, but a symptom of many other conditions. It is a cognitive disfunction that involves:

  • Memory problems
  • Lack of mental clarity
  • Poor concentration
  • Inability to focus
brain fog

Causes

  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Hormonal changes

Hormonal changes can trigger brain fog. Levels of the hormones progesterone and estrogen change during pregnancy. This can affect memory and cause short-term cognitive impairment.

Similarly, during the menopause, the female hormones are off-balance and this can cause forgetfulness, poor concentration, and cloudy thinking.

  • Diet -If you have food allergies or sensitivities, brain fog may develop after eating certain foods.
  • Medications- If you notice brain fog after starting a new medication, talk with your doctor. Read the leaflet that comes with the medications for possible side effects. Lowering your dosage or switching to another drug may improve your symptoms.
  • Medical conditions- Medical conditions associated with inflammation, fatigue, or changes in blood glucose level can also cause mental fatigue and brain fog. Many of the autoimmune disorders have brain fog as a symptom.

Home remedies for brain fog

  • Sleeping 8 to 9 hours per night
  • Managing stress by knowing your limitations.
  • Exercise and spend time outside.
  • Strengthening your brainpower. Learn new skills. Use it or lose it.
  • Find enjoyable activities
  • Increase your intake of protein, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine.

Superfoods and supplements

Here are some of my favourite natural remedies:

  • Activated charcoal is powerful enough to detox poisons, drugs, and alcohol overdose.
  • Gingko Biloba has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. More recently, scientists have shown that this plant extract can protect your brain from the toxicity associated with aluminium chloride, which has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive impairments.
  •  Bacopa Monnieri is an Ayuverdic adaptogenic herb, which has been used for thousands of years, this time in Indian medicine. Its primary benefit is a positive effect on cognition, due to its ability to reduce neural inflammation. Studies have found that it improves memory, our ability to learn more quickly, and interestingly most improves delayed word recall.
  • Salvia (Sage) plants have historically been used for the treatment of cognitive and neurological conditions. Studies have supported the evidence of Salvia plants to enhance cognitive skills and guard against neurodegenerative disorders.
