What is Fibro Fog?
Even if you don’t know what fibro fog is, if you have fibromyalgia, you most likely have experienced it before. Most fibromyalgia sufferers have had
experiences similar to this: You get halfway down the street before you realize you forgot something back home, only to get back home and forget what it is you came back for.
Or you’re in the middle of explaining a thought to someone when, suddenly, you have no idea what you were going to say to prove your point.
This is not an uncommon daily occurrence for those suffering from fibromyalgia.
Those who are suffering from CFS and fibromyalgia are aware that chronic fatigue is one of the most common of all symptoms. The next common complaint is muscle pain and body aches. The third most common symptom is what has been termed fibro fog.
Those suffering with fibro fog have impaired working memory as well as poor free recall, episodic memory and semantic memory. Their verbal fluency, as well as knowledge of verbal communication, is poor, and they have attention problems in addition to difficulties in concentration and focusing.
How Does Fibro Fog Develop?
Fibro fog is another term for not being able to concentrate or focus. The patients of Fibro fog complain of brain fatigue as well as a lack of energy or motivation.
One way fibro fog symptoms manifest is from the constant fatigue faced by people with fibromyalgia. These symptoms are not only rooted in anxiety or depression but also the sleep of these people is light and un-refreshing. Due to this, the patients find it hard to sleep and so they are fatigued and feel sleepy in the daytime.
The SIBO/Leaky-Gut Connection with Fibro Fog
However, lack of restful sleep is not the only factor causing fibro fog. Another main cause that experts are finding with cognitive/mental issues in fibro cases is from the overgrowth of particular bacteria within fibro patients. The metabolic processes of these microscopic bacteria cause neurotoxic chemicals to pollute the body. Specifically, the type of bacteria we’re referring to are the ones known to cause SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth).
These neurotoxins, which are secreted by pathogenic bacteria, have been shown to cause many neurological symptoms including, depression, memory loss and decreased control of motor skill, anxiety and foggy headedness. Often judgment is impaired, and speech is either altered or speech speed decreases.
What Can Be Done to Reduce Fibro Fog?
The traditional route is to offer different medications for fibromyalgia/CFS. These are normally prescription drugs which are given either to treat depression, muscle relaxants, pain relievers as well as other such medication. However, we’ve found a very effective, natural approach for getting to the heart of fibromyalgia treatment. Some of which are:
- Eliminate the bacterial overgrowth that are causing the symptoms.
- Follow a low sugar/starch diet such as Paleo to starve the pathogenic bacteria.
- Take biofilm dissolving enzymes to get under the protective layer of bacteria.
- Exercise daily or every other day to assist the body in removing these toxins.
- Start taking soil-based probiotics such as Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus coagulans to repopulate the gut with healthy, immune supporting bacteria.
- Read the “Restore 3 Handbook” eBook which contains a step-by-step protocol for eliminating fibromyalgia & IBS.
The “Restore 3 Handbook” is your step-by-step action plan for how to climb out of the fibromyalgia nightmare and was written by former fibromyalgia & IBS sufferers who finally found a way to solve their own fibromyalgia.
