- Perpetual mental fog
- Trouble concentrating or remembering things
- Life always seem difficult and tiring
- Lack of motivation
If so, you may have brain inflammation.
Why does this matter?
Because brain fog can lead to early brain degeneration that may be irreversible if caught too late.
Although brain fog is not addressed by conventional medicine, it responds well to functional medicine protocols.
Dr. Kharrazian will teach you which steps to take and in which order to address your brain symptoms in the Banish Brain Fog: The Six-Week Brain Rescue Plan online course.
Brain fog signals brain inflammation — functional medicine can help
When you sprain an ankle, you know something is wrong because of the pain, redness and swelling. But an inflamed brain doesn’t hurt.
Instead, it causes fatigue, foggy thinking, forgetfulness, lack of motivation, and depression. People don’t realize these are symptoms of poor brain health.
This is because the brain’s immune system does not have this “off-switch,” and inflammation can crawl through the brain like an unchecked fire, destroying tissue along the way.
This accelerates brain aging and raises the risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, and other brain degenerative diseases. Brain inflammation can even lead to psychiatric mood disorders.
These are mechanisms explained in more detail in the Banish Brain Fog: The Six-Week Brain Rescue Plan.
Causes of brain inflammation that functional medicine can help
- Chronic inflammation
- Blood sugar imbalances (hypoglycemia, insulin resistance, or diabetes)
- Gut infections
- Heavy metals and other environmental toxins
- Stress and lack of sleep
- Head injuries or stroke
Food intolerances are a major cause of brain fog
One of the more common causes of brain fog is a food intolerance, particularly to gluten. Many people have banished brain fog simply by going gluten-free. In fact, research shows gluten is linked to a variety of neurological and psychological disorders.
Functional medicine solutions
Thankfully, the brain responds well to functional medicine dietary and lifestyle strategies. Functional medicine can not only eliminate symptoms, but also improve brain function for years to come.
Nobody but you cares about your brain — don’t wait until it’s too late!
Nobody else will care about your brain health — that’s up to you. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
