Brain Fog & Stress

holiday brain fog

This is not pseudo science …Our stress hormone cortisol can actually shrink parts of your brain! It affects the amygdala – the part responsible for emotions and memory – and the prefrontal cortex – needed for planning complex cognitive behaviours, personality expression, decision-making, and moderating social behaviours.

Inflammation is present whenever there is a health concern and really affects our brain and energy. However, to really allow the body to heal, we must discover what is driving the inflammation.

Be conscious of these drivers of inflammation- food intolerances, chronic infections, drugs, stress, toxin exposure, sugar and high carb diets!

Awareness is key… not deprivation but nourishment. Do you have any of these?

  • Wired and tired
  • Quick to anger - irritable
  • Crave carbs and sugar
  • Mid-afternoon energy crash
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Hot flushing
  • Brain fog and memory blanks
  • Digestive upset - constipated, loose or both
