What is Brain Fog?
Brain fog can be defines as a state of mental confusion, detachment, and forgetfulness. That “fuzzy” feeling can be more than just a sign of aging or working too much. Brain fog can be the sign of variety of medical conditions and injuries, including damage to the butterfly-shaped bone in your head called the sphenoid.
What is the Sphenoid?
Located behind the eyes, the sphenoid is considered one of the most important bones in the skull because it touches almost all other bones in this area of the body. It is also important because of its joint with the occipital bone at the base of the head, a joint that acts to pump nutrients throughout the nervous system and remove waste. This joint also plays a critical role in maintaining a healthy immune system. If this delicate juncture is misaligned, it can cause a myriad of health issues, including headaches, TMJ, and neck pain.
