Foggy brain is often caused by what you’re eating
How Healthy Nest approaches foggy head/brain
Foggy brain has many different causes including stress, sleep issues, hormone issues and diet including nutritional deficiency and even dehydration.
Often, our first step is to examine your food sensitivity issues (we have elimination diets and up-to-date blood tests to assist in figuring out which foods are contributing to your brain fog. When you eat a food that creates an inflammatory reaction, it clouds your thinking. Eliminating trigger foods from your diet may improve symptoms.
We’ll also check your nutritional status and explore your current diet. We are what we eat, but more importantly, we are what we absorb from what we eat. Poor nutrient absorption is a key reason you are having problems thinking.
We also use some of the following strategies:
here are some things you can do to help your foggy head/brain:
- Build new food habits that include eating a whole foods anti-inflammatory diet.
- Increase your intake of protein, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats and eliminating processed higher sugar foods (consistently).
- Some targeted anti-inflammatory supplementation really helps with brain fog and brain health, including spices and fish oils.
- Eliminate unhealthful processed sugary choices by finding suitable swaps.
- Avoid overstressing the body by changing your habits with alcohol and caffeine and sugar. Too much of these anti-nutrients will make it harder to focus and think and be your smart self.
- Have your doc assess your hormone levels. Hormone imbalance can trigger brain fog causing forgetfulness, cloudy thinking and poor concentration.
- Cultivate a water regimen. Just like any new habit, it’s important to drink water consistently through the day. The body is 60 percent water, and the brain is 73 percent water. If your body is thirsty, it could be contributing to foggy brain.
