I’d like to talk with you about an increasing problem women are experiencing – brain fog. It’s a problem that brings women into my medical practice, and about which I receive a lot of concerned emails from readers. It’s also not just women in their 50s and 60s and older that are experiencing this problem – I even have patients in their 20s struggling with brain fog.

What is brain fog? It is cloudy mental thinking, the inability to concentrate the way you used to. The good news is that all of our symptoms are our body’s way of telling us something needs to shift – whether in our diet, lifestyle, self-care, or environment. Making the changes I talk about in this podcast, to turn around your personal root causes, can halt and reverse your current symptoms, and prevent and often even reverse the early onset of chronic disease.

Show Notes:
