See us for brain fog treatment in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Maple Shade, New Jersey, Bala Cynwyd , Pennsylvania, and the surrounding areas. The Falcone Center for Functional and Cosmetic Medicine uses functional medicine to treat brain fog and other chronic medical conditions.
What Is Brain Fog?
Brain fog is a condition that affects people in that they cannot think clearly. The results of brain fog may cause a person to be forgetful and not have mental clarity, which can leave them feeling discouraged and depressed. Brain fog is usually present all the time but can change from better to worse depending on several factors. Those who suffer from brain fog may have low self-esteem, suffer at school or work, and be more apt to have accidents as well as other issues.
What Causes Brain Fog?
While there is no known cause of brain fog, the most common factors that contribute to brain fog involve imbalances and dysfunction in the body including the following:
- Celiac disease of gluten intolerance/sensitivity
- Candida overgrowth
- Thyroid imbalances
- Food allergies
- Nutritional deficiencies
- ADHD/ADD and other neurological disorders
- Infections such as Lyme Disease
What Are the Signs of Brain Fog?
Brain fog is often used as a reason why someone misplaces things like car keys or TV remote or has a hard time completing projects or even thinking. But in reality because brain fog does not come and go, the following symptoms are constantly present:
- Inability to think clearly
- Feeling of being in a fog
- Inability to concentrate or focus
How Does Functional Medicine Treat Brain Fog?
While it is common, there is no actual clinical diagnosis for brain fog because it is so subjective. When someone suffers from it, they are not quite sure what is wrong and may feel off or “foggy.”
When treating brain fog through functional medicine, the objective, as with other medical conditions, is to determine the underlying cause. Once that is established, the recovery and treatment begins. With functional medicine, the most common treatments involve the following:
- Changing one’s diet to help improve digestion by removing processed foods and adding whole foods that alleviate chronic inflammation and naturally heal the body
- Adding the proper nutrients to help improve functions inside the body
- Supporting cell power in the body to help oxygen create energy in the body thus helping the body function at optimum levels
- Exercising to alleviate stress and aid the body in getting oxygen to the brain
- Performing genetic testing to determine factors that may be contributing to brain fog
- Eliminating sources of inflammation within the body to optimize performance and healing
What Is the Cost of Treating Brain Fog Through Functional Medicine?
At the Falcone Center, the cost for treating patients in Philadelphia, PA, Maple Shade, NJ, and the surrounding area is based on the appointment. Deposit is due when scheduling initial appointment.
It is important to note that the Falcone Center does not accept insurance as it is considered an “out-of-network provider” by most major insurance plans. While we cannot file insurance claims on our patients’ behalf, we can easily provide them with receipts and the necessary paperwork to file for reimbursement. We suggest that our patients determine whether their plans cover functional medicine prior to making an appointment.
