We don’t want to scare you but it turns out that more than five million people suffer from fibromyalgia in the United States, of which 80% are women.
What’s even scarier is that many of these people don’t know it yet as the condition is notoriously difficult to diagnose with some common symptoms including excessive sweating, heightened senses, digestive disorders, a lack of Vitamin D, joint pain, fatigue, problems with urinating, and sleep problems. As you can see, these symptoms can seem like symptoms of almost anything, which is why many conventional doctors tend to be dismissive about these symptoms.
While no two fibromyalgia patients experience the same symptoms, it has been shown that patients will report psychological symptoms in addition to the physical ones such as pain and fatigue. Brain fog is a very common symptom of fibromyalgia, as are depression and anxiety. Brain fog leads to problems with memory, concentration, organizational skills, and other cognitive problems while depression and anxiety can seem like a vicious circle of bottomless pits.
There are many medications that aim to hide to the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, however more and more people are turning to holistic methods to treat their condition, one of which is our effective Functional Neurology therapies.
Our state-of-the-art therapies have been developed in a way that allows for customization of each aspect starting with the are that it targets, to how much of the drug-free therapy is necessary for the patient to start seeing results.
Cooking is an activity that takes a person through a variety of brain functions. When we take to our kitchens to prepare our favorite dinner recipes, we are also honing many of our cognitive skills. Even before we open our refrigerator to get started, the meal plan must first be put together and organized. This activity requires anticipation, planning, and strategic ability. Problem-solving is at work when we realize that we do not have all the ingredients for our favorite dish and have to improvise. Kneading, chopping, and mixing ingredients make use of motion control and hand-eye coordination. As dinnertime approaches and it becomes necessary to juggle between the stove and the oven, multi-tasking and concentration skills are exercised. Lastly, ensuring that dinner comes out of the oven at precisely the right time involves making use of short-term memory and visual-spatial awareness. After reviewing all the steps in meal preparation, it is easy to see that cooking dinner utilizes a variety of cognitive proficiencies.
