Mold and Brain Fog

Brain fog is one of the most common symptoms of mold-related illness. Brain fog is a condition that can make it difficult to concentrate, remember things, and think clearly.

How does mold cause brain fog?

Mold produces mycotoxins, which are toxic substances that can cause a wide range of health problems. When you breathe in these mycotoxins, they can enter your bloodstream and travel to your brain, where they can cause inflammation and damage.

Mold can also cause an allergic reaction in some people, which can lead to inflammation in the sinuses and brain. This inflammation can cause a range of symptoms, including brain fog.
