Brain Fog Is Much More Common Than You Might Think
Hearing the term "brain fog", one would probably assume that it stems from one's forgetfulness or playful explanation of why you can't remember things or serve as the reason why many of us have stood in a room, having a blank stare, not remembering why we came into the room in the first place.
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 feeling not completely dialed into your own life, you could probably be classified as having a case of “Brain fog”.
Now with brain fog, most symptoms are "normal" when done with medical tests per se, but it is one of those conditions where people have many of the uncomfortable symptoms mentioned earlier yet the medical field can't label it. 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. What's up with that?
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.
Probiotics can assist you body with losing weight
.Probiotics and losing weight are not words that many put together, but have you ever wondered if there was a relationship between gut health and weight loss? Millions of people feel as if they are constantly fighting a war between losing and gaining weight. It seems the daily question is, “which one is winning now?” But don’t despair, if you feel you are not able to lose that last bit of fat around your midsection, there may be a specific reason why you can't shed the weight. The reason for it may be addressed by looking at the health of your gut. It could be either it isn't working the way it should or you just don’t have enough helpful gut flora or probiotics in your body.
I've discussed it many times before on this blog (Why You Have The Hardest Time Losing The Last 10 Pounds or How To Get More Energy From Foods) of the importance of having a proper (and a significant) amount of good, healthy gut bacteria thriving in your microbiome to help maintain an ideal weight. We could actually say having good gut flora is crucial for most hormonal issues, including insulin (blood sugar) and melatonin (sleep patterns), but for the purpose of this article, we are only going to address the hormones required to digest, process, and eliminate foods and ultimately the waste in your body.
For those of you that know me, the greatest way to spend a large part of my day is talking with people about foods, my Pops, health, or other people's eating habits. I have always loved to have discussions with people regarding foods; I think it's in my blood. I feel I have a quest to learn everything I can possibly know about foods (and yes, I know it's not possible). Sometimes, I'll get on my soapbox and other times, I'll just sit and listen.
I had an interesting incident that happened to me recently during a discussion with a random lady at a
So many times, and prior to even having a general conversation with me, many people who are interested in losing that "bloat" begin to inevitably realize how many "diets" they have been on over the course of their lifetime have given them limited or even no great long-term success. (Captain Obvious here, but) that's essentially the reason why we are even having a conversation anyway. If you have followed me for any length of time, you know I am a firm believer that probiotics can help you with weight loss.
Do Healing Foods Affect The Body Like Traditional Foods?
People often ask me why I am so adamant about having healing foods serve as your medicine to better health. First, let’s get some things straight. I am not against doctors, nor do I think that conventional medicine is evil. I find flaw in that most doctors prescribe medicine to treat the symptom, instead of digging deeper to find the root of the problem.
Big Pharma is basically considered corrupt, and needs to have their compasses redirected to actually caring about the people, and not the money they make. Don’t worry, I’m not naive, I won’t be holding my breath. With that said, I do believe there is a time and place for conventional medicine. I do believe there is a time to visit the doctor or hospital. I do think we have made amazing strides in certain areas of the medical field that have helped save thousands of lives. I am grateful for them, and grateful for a lot of the work they do.
The First Step To Better Health
We all should understand that it seems to be a lack of easy tips for healthy living. I love to write about something food, fitness, health, or wellness related, but I also enjoy writing about how people can make new and exciting changes in their lives. So, it probably comes as no surprise if I was to say that I understand that most feel overwhelmed when it comes to making changes to a new fitness or health program. That can be a bit daunting, right?
