There seems to be an increasing incidence of people who complain of brain fog. What exactly does this mean? You have probably experienced times when you just couldn’t think clearly. Your memory seems lacking. You can’t remember why you walked into that room. You can’t find your keys.
There are many reasons why this may be happening. Here are just a few:
- Sleep deprivation
- Excessive mental, emotional and physical stress
- Hormonal imbalances
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Environmental toxicity
- Mold toxicity
- Poor nutrition
- Autoimmune diseases
- Adverse childhood experiences
- Neuro-degeneration, age-related cognitive decline
The list goes on and on. Consider brain fog as a red flag that something has gone wrong in your body. If your brain isn’t functioning optimally, it’s a sure sign you need to get some help and find out why. That’s where functional medicine and brain evaluations that we do at Healing Unleashed can transform your life.
You will be evaluated by our medical director, Dr. Wanda Bedinghaus with an detailed history and physical. She may also recommend appropriate laboratory tests to investigate the root cause of your brain fog. Without a fully functioning brain, life just isn’t what it should be.
