Everyone will have a time in life when they have moments of brain fog. This is what happens when you see someone and his or her name is on the tip of your tongue.
But for the life of you, you’re just not able to bring that person’s name to mind. It’s also what happens when you can’t recall a time, a place or an event exactly as it was years ago.
Not being able to find something when you know you had it can also be an example of brain fog. These times that you experience momentary brain fog or normal and nothing to worry about.
However, when they occur more than a few times, you need to pay attention.
Many people associate brain fog with people that are getting older, but this condition is
happening to more - and younger - people.
And there’s a reason that it is. Brain fog is associated with how good your health is.
When you have brain fog, it can be caused by the toxins in your body.
. There’s a strong link between your digestive health and your brain’s ability to function.
Wherever these toxins are in your body, they cause trouble.
As a result of these toxins being in your body, inflammation can start to build and it leads to brain fog. If it’s not treated, this inflammation can cause long term cognitive decline.
You might suspect that you have it, but you aren’t sure.
One of the more widely known symptoms associated with this condition is fatigue.
What causes this fatigue is the stress that’s put on your body.
This stress is in the form of your organs having to work double time as they attempt to clear the toxins from your body. Everything in your body is affected by these toxins.
Other possible causes of brain fog are:
a lack of sleep, low blood sugar, allergies,
dehydration, or electrolyte imbalance.
There is lots of information right now about leaky gut but there is also leaky brain,
which just means that those pro-inflammatory foods cross the blood-brain barrier. So keep in mind that those poor food choices are affecting your brain.
Eating anti-inflammatory foods sharpen your brain and improve your mood.
Here are a few anti-inflammatory choices:
Trout, blueberries, olive oil, ginger, celery, beets, broccoli, pineapple, salmon, flax seed,
bone broth, walnut, coconut oil, chia seeds, and turmeric.
