The Brain Fog Fix
By Mike Dow
Published by Hay House, September 2015
The title of this book grabbed my attention immediately; in our house, two of us have different chronic illnesses, but each produces "brain fog". This is an insidious, debilitating problem, adversely affecting short-term memory, concentration and mood and having a major effect on everyday living. It affects many people, yet it is apparently both preventable and treatable.
Re-balancing the brain's levels of serotonin, dopamine and cortisol, improving sleep, making real-life connections with people, developing a routine of meditation and/or prayer, starting a sensible and sustainable amount of gentle exercise and managing stress can apparently result in a rapid lessening or reversal of the distressing brain fog symptoms in three weeks. These are not all to be done at once, but introduced in groups over three one week periods. Diet plays a huge part, and some dietary tweaks will be necessary, but they need not be overwhelmingly difficult and they certainly do not rule out all possibility of further treats and occasional indulgences.
Well worth a read, and I have ordered my own hard copy of this book after reviewing this digital copy via NetGalley!
