About Brain Fog

Brain fog can be a frustrating and puzzling condition. It's characterized by forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating, and mental fatigue.

Completing simple tasks, following conversations, or remembering important information is difficult when experiencing brain fog.

Brain fog can be caused by a number of factors, including lack of sleep, increased stress levels, depression, dementia, perimenopause, chronic health conditions such as multiple sclerosis, and viral infections including COVID-19.

A 2022 study from the Universities of Cambridge and Exeter found that 78% of people with "long COVID" symptoms reported difficulties with concentration and other brain fog symptoms.

Another recent study shows people who contracted COVID-19 faced substantially higher risks of neuropsychiatric ailments including brain fog.

Brain rehabilitation and training programs like those we provide can help to improve brain function and alleviate brain fog. Brain fog treatment is designed to improve cognitive functioning by providing the brain with new challenges that help to improve memory, reasoning, and problem-solving skills.

Similar to rehabilitation exercises used to help retrain a brain after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or stroke, brain fog treatment focuses on helping the brain to rewire itself and form new neural connections.

How Brain Rehabilitation & Training Works for Brain Fog 

The APEX Brain Centers Approach Has Helped Thousands Regain Function & Quality of Life

Pre-Care

 

Every patient's brain rehabilitation and training journey begins with the creation of an individualized care plan by our board-certified physicians and is informed by the following:

  • Lab Work to measure internal biochemistry and establish a metabolic baseline.
  • Cognitive Testing to evaluate attention, focus, memory, impulse control, and other critical cognitive abilities.
  • Comprehensive History including medical history, nutrition questionnaires, and lifestyle questions.

Neurological Rehabilitation

 

All APEX intensive rehabilitation programs combine treatment frequency, repetition, and duration multiple times per day to drive optimal patient outcomes.

  • Diagnostic Testing to measure internal biochemistry and establish a metabolic baseline.
  • Rehabilitation Modalities to evaluate attention, focus, memory, impulse control, and other critical cognitive abilities.
  • Metabolic and Nutritional Therapy to identify and correct nutritional deficiencies and optimize nutritional supplementation.

Post-Care

 

Patients' rehabilitation and training care plans continue as long as needed through a combination of the following distance and in-person treatment elements.

  • Retesting to continue to monitor internal biochemistry and measure progress.
  • Nutrition therapy through supplements and education to optimize health and cognitive performance.
  • At-home training includes exercises, therapies, and personalized strategies for each individual.

Frequently Asked Questions about Brain Fog

Technically, Brain Fog is not a disease or syndrome, but rather a collection of symptoms that together cause a lack of mental clarity and memory problems. 

Brain fog is a symptom of many different conditions, including exhaustion, anxiety, depression, stress, sleep deprivation, and hormonal imbalances. It can also be a side effect of certain medications and lifestyle choices, and cognitive and metabolic stage of life changes.

It can make you feel disoriented, confused, and unable to think clearly. 

If your brain fog is caused by lifestyle factors, making changes to your diet, sleep habits, and stress levels may help. There are also a number of supplements and natural remedies that have been shown to be effective in treating brain fog.

For many people, brain fog is a temporary and mild issue that goes away on its own. But for others, brain fog can be a more serious and chronic problem that interferes with daily life. Functional neurology-based rehabilitation and training like the care provided by APEX Brain Centers can be highly beneficial for these cases. 

Yes, especially if you fall into the "long COVID" category. A 2022 study from the Universities of Cambridge and Exeter found that 78% of people with "long COVID" symptoms reported difficulties with concentration and other brain fog symptoms.

At APEX, we use state-of-the-art brain mapping and objective neurological testing to assess the brain's function and then design a customized brain rehabilitation and training program to help the brain perform at its best.
