What is COVID/Vaccine Mental Fog?
For many, the COVID-19 pandemic had a devastating impact on their physical and mental well-being. Not only did the virus often leave lingering abnormal symptoms, many who have taken the vaccine have experienced unusual reactions as well.
Covid brain fog is a term used to describe neurological aftereffects caused by the COVID-19 virus. Brain fog is common for those who contracted the disease and usually becomes apparent after the resolution of the infection's acute phase. The vaccination for the virus produces an immune reaction consistent with the illness, which leads to similar effects. During recovery, brain fog symptoms may worsen, improve, or fluctuate. The persistent impairment in sustained attention is a common symptom of both the virus and the vaccination.
What are the symptoms?
There are many different symptoms related to Covid/Vaccine brain fog. The type and severity of the symptoms may differ for each person experiencing them.
Common brain fog symptoms involve forgetfulness, confusion, dizziness, fatigue, and physical discomfort. Other symptoms include difficulty concentrating, expressing thoughts effectively, and persistent mental exhaustion.
Research has indicated inflammation caused by the COVID-19 virus is influential in developing COVID brain fog symptoms. The inflammation affects the brain and body, resulting in brain fog symptoms.
How is it treated?
There are specific activities that may help alleviate the symptoms of COVID/Vaccine brain fog. These include staying hydrated, exercising, having proper rest, eating healthy, staying socially active, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol.
Those suffering from severe symptoms may need cognitive rehabilitation. This type of treatment utilizes specific methodologies to regain optimal brain functioning. They include creating and reinforcing behaviors and thought patterns beneficial to cognitive performance. In all instances, a physician should be consulted to discuss the neurological and physical symptoms experienced.
How can Brain Frequency™ help?
The Brain Frequency™ AI system is an innovative therapeutic approach to improving brain health and wellness. We use proprietary science-based technology to promote optimal brain functioning across mental, emotional, physical, and social domains. Our diagnostic technology and individualized treatment protocols help decrease or eliminate trauma-related symptoms and various mental health disorders.
The Brain Frequency™ 3 Step Treatment Process consists of; first, performing a Baseline EEG and completing Psychometric Assessments; second, conducting a Brain Frequency Consultation; and third, Initiating Treatment.
An Electroencephalogram (EEG) analyzes brain waves and produces a brain map identifying current and optimal frequencies in 19 areas of the brain. Based on the individualized brain map, Brain Frequency™ will determine possible diagnoses of various mental health disorders or brain trauma for the provider to consider during treatment. Brain Frequency™ AI software provides clinicians with an "Approval Ready" treatment plan using personalized protocols based on each patient's needs.
Those suffering from Covid/Vaccine Mental Fog can efficiently and effectively treat their disorder using the Brain Frequency™ AI system. Our innovative system drastically reduces the time needed to properly diagnose and construct treatment plans leading to a faster recovery and greater quality of life.
