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.

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.
