Brain fog feels like a cloud that lowers your brain function and thinking ability. Brain fog is more common then people think and can affect people of ALL ages, young, middle-aged and elderly. Below are some examples of how there is a link between brain fog and toxic metals.
Brain Fog: isn’t a medical condition itself, but rather a symptom of other medical conditions. It’s a type of cognitive dysfunction involving: memory problems, lack of mental clarity and poor concentration. BUT WHY? That is the big question to me. WHY do people suffer from brain fog and what is the link between brain fog and toxic metals? Below are some examples of what toxic metals can do to the brain.
Copper: Copper is found in certain fish, meats, nuts, and seeds. It is also in water pipes, cookware, and birth control pills. Copper toxicity can lead to confusion, racing thoughts, acne, fatigue, autism, adrenal fatigue, spaciness, fears, mood swings, thyroid imbalances, brain fog.
Mercury: This toxic metal is found in large fish like tuna in high amounts, contaminated drinking water, occupational exposures, adhesives, fabric softeners, and in dental amalgams. Mercury inhibits the ATP enzyme which is needed for cellular energy. There may be sensory nerve damage, motor conduction reduction, gait changes, weakness, slurred speech, and tremors.
Aluminum: This toxic metal is added to table salt and drinking water and is found in antiperspirants, anti-acids, baking powders, bleaches flours, and many cosmetics. Aluminum toxicity inhibits essential enzymes in the brain and may inhibit the uptake of chemicals by nerve cells like dopamine, 5-hydroxytryptamine, and norepinephrine. It can cause memory loss, loss of coordination, confusion, and disorientation.
Lead: This toxic metal is found in the environment. It is in hair dyes, lead water pipes, leaded gasoline, ceramic glazes, cigarette smoke, etc. Symptoms of lead toxicity may include brain fog, fatigue, insomnia, Parkinson’s, vertigo, anxiety, memory impairment, mood swings, depression, and more.
