"Brain Fog” is not a medically recognized term, but is something that is commonly experiences. Symptoms of brain fog include confusion, forgetfulness, lack of focus or mental clarity, fatigue, headaches, and difficulty “finding your words." Lifestyle factors, including sleep, stress, food intake, and hydration status play a paramount role in the functioning of your brain. A poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, exposure to toxins (in food and environment), and inflammation in the body also contribute to brain fog. Those who suffer from brain fog are also likely to have autism spectrum disorder, chronic fatigue syndrome, Celiac disease, fibromyalgia, and food sensitivities.
