What Causes Brain Fog?
Brain fog isn’t a medical condition itself, but rather a symptom of other medical conditions. It’s a type of cognitive dysfunction involving memory problems, lack of mental clarity, poor concentration and the inability to focus. Some people also describe it as mental fatigue. Depending on the severity of brain fog, it can interfere with work or school. But it doesn’t have to be a permanent fixture in your life.
1. Lack Of Sleep
Sleep deprivation, either from regularly not allowing enough time for sleep or due to a physical or mental problem that prevents restful sleep.
Everyone feels stressed from time to time. Not all stress is bad. All animals have a stress response, and it can be life-saving. But chronic stress can cause both physical and mental harm.
Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working.
4. Hormonal Changes
Hormones are chemical messengers in the body that travel in the blood to organs and tissues signaling them to do the work they were designed to do. They can affect many different processes in the body, including reproduction, sexual function, metabolism, growth and development, and even mood. Men and women both have hormones, and hormone levels change and develop as the individual grows and ages.
We ingest toxins continually throughout the day. They are everywhere: in the air you breathe, in all the highly-processed foods you eat, exposure to heavy metals, chemicals, molds, drugs and so much more. As a result, it is critical to clean toxins from your body.
6. Disease & Disorder
Brain fog is a term for the "woolly" sensation of a physical obstruction to clear thinking in the brain, often extended to apply in general to neurocognitive symptoms experienced by many people who suffer from diseases such as ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, amongst others. Since brain fog is very similar to symptoms of mental illness, it's possible that persons who report brain fog are actually suffering from mental disorder including depression, schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder. In particular brain fog is very similar to the decrease in concentration in depression and the depressive phase of bipolar disorder and thought blocking which occurs in schizophrenia.
