Welcome to the second part of this 2 part episode where I speak to Dr Sabina Brennan. a clinical psychologist, neuroscientist, fellow podcaster and best selling author of the book on how to beat Brain Fog.
As we know, Brain fog and congitive dysfunction is one of the most common sysmptoms noted in Longcovid. Treatments are still emerging and I thought it would be a fascinating and hugely useful to hear from a researcher and scientist and someone with lived exeperience herself on how to overcome brain Fog. Dr. Brennan discusses the reasons for brain fog, the present causes and the treatment option available and why we must pay attention.
In this episode, we delive deeper into how her 4 week program can really help with brain fog reduction in a careful evidence based manner. There are no quick fixes here however Sabina shows that done properly, there can be lasting recovery from something as complex as brain fog.
