Do you have brain fog? Tips to treat your brain fog.

Brain fog is not a medical condition. It is a symptom of other possible medical conditions. You may have memory problems, difficulty concentrating, mental confusion or unable to focus on the task at hand.

Some of the causes might be:

Menopause

Treatment: Hormone supplements and other types of medication may help.

Depression

Treatment: Treatment for your depression, which includes medication and talk therapy, should help get you back on track. Trying something new alters the levels of dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore.

Lack of sleep

Treatment: Sleep 7 to 9 hours a night. Try repeatedly tensing and releasing your toes to the count of 10. Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bedtime. Have a night time snack before going to bed. Cheese, omega-3-rich fish like tuna, sardines, or mackerel can get the job done, too. Or low fat milk, whole grain crackers, bananas and cherries.

Stress

Treatment: Know your limitations of your stress level. Avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine.  Natural remedies include passionflower, massage, mediation, exercise and B vitamins.

Hormonal changes

Treatment: Blood test. Most hormones can be detected in the blood. A doctor can use a blood test to check your thyroid, estrogen, testosterone, and cortisol levels then possibly prescribe medications such as low dose estrogen therapy.

 

Your diet

Treatment:  increasing your intake of protein, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats.

Foods that may cause your brain fog:

Processed Meat.

Dairy. Many people are sensitive to dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt.

MSG.

Alcohol.

Artificial Sweeteners.

Foods that may help:

Nutritional Yeast.

Turmeric.

Spinach.

Avocado.

Eggs.

Celery.

Rosemary.

Medications you take

Treatment: Some kinds of drugs ,over-the-counter and prescribed, can cause brain fog. If you take medicine and notice that your thinking isn’t as clear as it should be or you suddenly can’t remember things, call your doctor. Be sure to let him know all the medications you take.

Medical conditions associated with inflammation, fatigue, or changes in blood glucose level can also cause brain fog. This can include: chronic fatigue syndrome, anemia and depression. You should let your doctor know about other symptoms you might have.
