So you have your wellness assessment lifestyle recommendations, now what? Before you start making those incremental changes, you need to get in the right mindset. Clear the mind of “brain fog”! Everyone feels a little fuzzy-headed once in a while, but if you suffer from brain fog frequently, you certainly would like to get your mental clarity back, right? Here are some possible causes: You can temporarily suffer with brain fog from lack of sleep, low blood sugar, seasonal allergies, food allergies, dehydration, or electrolyte imbalance following heavy exercise. If you are a woman of “a certain age,” brain fog is a common symptom of menopause. Brain fog can be caused by medications. Chemotherapy has a well-known side effect referred to as “chemo fog” or “chemo brain.” Toxins and pollution of all kinds can affect your thinking. This includes air pollution, fluoride in our water supply, and EMF (electromagnetic frequency) pollution from cell phones and wifi. Substance abuse of any kind can lead to being mentally unclear. Sometimes a mental fog can be a symptom of a more serious condition such as mercury poisoning, hormonal imbalance, depression, fibromyalgia, or Lyme disease. Losing mental clarity is often considered a “normal” side effect of aging, but that doesn’t mean it is an inevitable consequence of growing older. Prolonged stress leads to anxiety, depression, poor decision making, insomnia, and memory loss. Stress can literally cause your brain to shrink and that’s as harmful as it sounds. Getting the sleep you need and eating a brain-healthy diet will help diminish stress. Two more things you can do are exercise and meditate. And of course, supplementation also comes in to play. Nutrients that are proven beneficial for brain function: An omega-3 essential fatty acid supplement — found in high concentrations in the brain, omega-3s are crucial to memory and overall brain health and function, yet are widely lacking in our diet. Vitamin D and B12 — both vitamins are essential to brain health and deficiencies are common. An antioxidant formula — prevents free radical damage to which brain cells are particularly susceptible. A high-quality multivitamin — fills in nutritional gaps and acts as nutritional insurance when you don’t eat as well as you should. Studies have found that this alone can improve brain function. A supplement created specifically to boost your brain. You can also do a Healthy Reset! Learn more here:
