Is Brain Fog Caused By Digestion?
Can brain fog be reversed? The causes of brain fog can be numerous, but most of them ultimately come back to knowing why poor digestion leads to brain fog?
What's the origin of the term “brain fog” and what exactly does it mean? If you have ever had those bouts of feeling like you lacked mental clarity, couldn't focus your attention on a task at hand, lacking concentration, or simply a general sense of just not feeling completely dialed into your life, you could probably be classified as having a case of “Brain fog”.
It's important to note that when you begin to look at “brain fog” and whether you have it and its causes, you'll generally find that most of the symptoms don't come up as abnormal when done with medical tests per se, but it is one of those conditions where people have uncomfortable symptoms like diminished mental clarity or just lacking focus, yet the medical field can't label it. Because you are an adult, they'd rule out things like ADD or ADHD, so then what?
Just imagine if you are having trouble thinking of words on the tip of your tongue, feeling as if you're performing tasks in a haze, or even taking longer to do certain tasks are not, and then hearing the doctor tell you that nothing is wrong with you. How frustrating would that be; feeling like something is wrong yet a doctor tells you nothing is wrong. So what should one do if they lack continual mental focus?
We should note that using the term brain fog doesn't mean the same thing as brain impairment or dementia, and there are no studies that says feeling of brain fog lead to cognitive diseases. But there are other reasons you may be feeling that way, and it has to do more with foods than it does aging. So if you believe you have many of the symptoms mentioned earlier, and doctors tell you that there is nothing physically wrong with you, you might want to begin looking at the foods you are eating, and more specifically, the digestion of those foods.
If you have ever wondered why is my brain foggy, from a nutritional standpoint, you might want to also look at is your brain fog caused by digestion. Knowing this, feeling lost with brain fog might come down to simply removing some foods from your diet. You might be surprised with the results and on the road to recovery.
