Toronto, Ontario -
Toronto Functional Medicine Centre in Toronto, ON, Canada, has recently published a blog post that describes IV therapy in Toronto for brain fog. Brain fog is a murky, foggy, and sluggish feeling in the head that makes it a challenge to recall memories and think coherently. It may actually be a symptom of a more serious problem and it can negatively affect a person’s physical/athletic performance, personal and professional life, mood, and more. They offer various IV therapy options for brain fog, which may be caused by dehydration, inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, diabetes, heavy metal toxicity, fatigue, poor sleep and stress
Functional medicine and IV therapy practitioners may help patients fight brain fog by focusing on vitamin and mineral levels, epigenetics, detoxification, immunological control, and more. Brain fog may manifest differently for each individual, which is why Toronto Functional Medicine Centre may offer a tailored program of therapy to help a patient achieve optimum health. They offer various intravenous (IV) therapy options, such as NAD IV therapy, chelation, vitamin B12 and antioxidants like alpha lipoic acid.
There are a number of possible symptoms of cognitive decline and impaired brain function. These include: issues with concentration or memory loss; having trouble remembering words, including short-term and long-term memory issues; a decline in motor skills; having issues with balance and dizziness; persistent headaches/migraines; previously experiencing concussions (PCS/post-concussion syndrome); unable to stay alert, or functioning in a state of confusion or disorientation; mood swings; depression and anxiety; and poor sleep patterns.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an essential coenzyme that plays a major role in regulating metabolism. In addition, it also plays a key role in skeletal muscle development, cellular regeneration, cardiovascular health and aging. It has also been observed that the NAD IV therapy may promote brain optimization, increase energy levels, and alleviate brain fog. With IV therapy, the nutrients are inserted directly into the patient’s bloodstream, which means they bypass the gastrointestinal tract, allowing the nutrients to be fully absorbed by the body. NAD may also be combined with other kinds of nutrients, such as glutathione and amino acids.
Toronto Functional Medicine Centre may also offer chelation IV therapy. This is typically provided for those who present symptoms of heavy metals toxicity. Chelation may help in getting rid of heavy metals in the blood. They will first perform heavy metal testing to determine the level of exposure to heavy metals and to help find out how to avoid exposure to those toxic elements. Exposure to heavy metals usually comes from coated food containers, water or air pollution, the industrial environment, food sources, drinking water, and second-hand cigarette smoke.
For individuals with minor heavy metal poisoning, simply refraining from exposure may be enough. However, for those with serious heavy metal toxicity symptoms, chelation therapy may be recommended. It involves the use of an oral or Intravenous chelating agent, which attaches itself to heavy metals found in the blood. These produce a compound that will be eliminated from the body through the urine. Heavy metal toxicity must not be left untreated or else it may cause other health problems, such as allergies, kidney issues, and deficiency in nutritional minerals.
