1. The Brain Fog Fix by Dr Mike Dow
Dr Mike Dow, a psychotherapist, best-selling author, and brain-being specialist, discusses the hormones in our minds and how they change our emotions, perceptions, and behaviour in his book The Brain Fog Remedy. (We wrote a post about it, which you will find here… no pressure.)
Dr Dow believes that brain fog is triggered by a chemical deficiency in the brain and that our brains “are not getting the help they need to generate vital brain chemicals we need to function,” including cortisol, serotonin, and dopamine.
The Brain Fog Fixer is a three-week program that focuses on strengthening cognitive functions such as memory and concentration to naturally overcome and avoid fog by repairing brain chemistry and preparing your brain to be comfortable again.
