Consider Additional Supplements
You may have heard the term “nootropics,” which refers to a broad range of drugs, supplements and other substances that are taken to improve cognitive performance. Sometimes referred to as “smart drugs” or “cognitive enhancers,” these substances can range from caffeine and adaptogens, to amphetamines. While the list of nootropics is long, there are few that I like that are science-backed for improving brain fog, and safe for those of us with chronic disease.
If you are still experiencing brain fog after tackling the fundamental strategies I’ve outlined above, you may want to dig a little bit further and incorporate one or more additional steps to uncover your root causes.
Brain fog is an incredibly common symptom in Chronic Disease and can leave a person feeling unable to function in their day-to-day life. Confusion, lack of focus, memory loss… these can all sap a person’s self-confidence and greatly impact their quality of life. I know this to be true, as it was my own experience!
The good news is that, by making sure our thyroid hormones are optimized, and by addressing gut health, we can eliminate most of the underlying causes of brain fog and regain mental clarity. It might take some work; after all, healing from chronic disease involves some detective work to get the bottom of everyone’s underlying causes. But I have no doubt that you can get there. When brain fog is eliminated, there is no limit to what you can accomplish!
