Natural Cures for Brain Fog

Multiple Remedies

Brain fog can also result from an unbalanced 'gut', hypothyroidism and allergies to certain foods like wheat and gluten. I have been suffering from very bad headaches and brain fog for close to a year now and suspect the long time use of allergic foods and an unbalanced gut. 7 days ago I started taking Probiotics, eliminated wheat/Gluten, added Aloe Vera juice 3x a day as a tonic and am blending lots of greens (spinach, kale, chard, cilantro, cucumber, green appleas and pear) into a smoothie 3 times a day to alkalize my body. Too early to tell yet, but noticed more energy, major improvement of my nails.

I will now add AVC daily. Appreciate everyone's input.

For brain fog: 1tsp Lemongrass (loose leaf) 1tsp Lemon Myrtle (loose leaf) 1 White TEA, tea bag. Take 2 cups of hot water brew for 5 to 7 minutes. Drink 4oz to 12oz a day for a period of time. You could add a Rose Hip tea bag to this mix. This cleared my head and it also made it where I can spell and retain words better. It also improved my ability to pronunce words. I wish I had this back in the 6th grade... I would also say I am on a green diet. Lemongrass and Lemon Myrtle both contain Citral. Lemon Myrtle (90-98%) Lemongrass (65-85%). Citral also has strong antimicrobial qualities. Side effects I don't know.

When I was a little kid I had a bad twitch with my eyes, mouth and my neck and in the 60's the doc's didn't know why I did it. Growing up I always struggled with english and spelling. I now think that from a young age my body has been dealing with some type of infection that caused brain fog and now that I'm in my forties I find myself with a much better clarity of thought.

I read about oil pulling on this site and decided to try it, though i wasn't aware of any real health problems. I only had olive oil in the house so I went with that for 3 or 4 days and did the neti pot nasal flush afterward each time. I used a tablespoon of oil and swished for 15 minutes, rinsing afterward with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. baking soda in warm water. Throughout the course of those four days I noticed a startling mood elevation and mental clarity that I hadn't had in a very long time. I also noticed alot of sinus drainage and my ability to smell increased. Also my eyes stopped feeling itchy or dry. I switched over to sesame oil because it was recommended, but have since switched back to olive oil and experienced the same mood elevation and mental clarity. This has made me wonder if I was suffering from low-grade depression the whole time. I feel much calmer and focussed, less confused and find alot more reasons to laugh during the day. I also have a TON more energy and work much harder. This energy caused me to have some problems sleeping for the first few days. One last thing is that my beard seems to have gotten much thicker and softer. I'm excited about such a cheap and simple remedy and would recommend it to everyone.

Many Americans have b-vitamin deficiencies, particularly Thiamin or B-1.

Many diseases can lead to brain fog. Candida, Staph, poor digestion problems. The first thing to test though, is a B-complex vitamin. Sometimes miraculous results can be produced in a day or two (if brainfog hasn't been a chronic condition).

Here is a discussion of sub-cortical dimensia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dementia

This can be caused by b-1,b-12, folic acid deficiencies. Other b-vitamin deficiencies can also lead to brain fog. As a b-vitamin is water soluble, safe, and cheap($5)... if you have brain fog, it may be worth while picking up a bottle and testing this out. It might change your life, or at least buy you some time to figure out the underlying cause.

Instant brain relief : Eat raw onion or add it on top of a stew or salad with good amount of onions.

Chewing a raw ginger works as well but does not last as the onion trick. I have had good experience with onions every time. My sight gets clear immediately and my brain clarity takes over the fog in an instant.

I have had brain fog /die off (also known as Heximer's reaction) when I have cleansed and toxins are released. I have had success taking an amino acid combination: L-Arginine/L. Ornithine. I read that they absorb the toxins and I have relief from the brain fog within 1/2 hour. I take one capsule, 1000 mg on an empty stomach. Also, I have had good results with a molybdenum 120 mcg & Glutathione 50 mg complex, sublingual tablet. However, I use the amino acid combo more often, because it is easier to find online or in my local health food store.

Hi Guys, I have gone through most of the feedbacks that you shared and seems some of you might can help me. I am not sure If I am suffering from Brain Fog or not but symtops are quite same. It started almost 45 days back when I suddenly had a severe fatigue attack. Dont know the reason, may be due to a bit stress or heat. After that I felt quite low for at least 3-4 days. After recovering I started going back to my work, suddenly in afternoon I have this brain foggy feeling. Unclear mind, Stiffness, missing major feelings and slight on creativity side and throughout its continous..... In short feeling some cloudiness in brain. But I am able to do rest of my works fine, talk fine, walk fine, work fine, but this wierd feeling of brain fog is killing me.

I consulted specialized neurologist, he said its a tension type headache and advised antidepressant clonozepam so as it can relax muscles. Also he said may be its some chemical imbalance due to defficiency in serotonin, but no firm tests are their to prove it. I took medicine for 3 weeks, but it hardly helped, instead when I left, I faced severe headache for 2 days. Right now, I am not taking any medication and foggy feeling is still constant, even I believe its not a stress headache as I do not have any stress other than to get rid of this thing. All my reports, MRI, EEG, Blood tests are normal. Only I am left with thyroid and Vitamin deficiency tests.

Please advise if ACV will be usefull in my case. In addition I am trying to but breathing exercizes in routine, but not much benifit yet. Dont know what to do next.

Hi Jas, I would venture to say, by what you are describing, that you are suffering from a severe case of candida. Candida can manifest in many ways and it is the root cause of many illnesses of which doctors don't really address or give credibility to what candida is capable of doing to the body. Many people have systemic candida and one of the big tell tale signs is severe brain fog. Medications exacerbate the problem.

There is so much information on Earth Clinic regarding this subject especially from Bill of San Fernando, Luzon, Philippines. It would be redundant for me to go back over it since he has covered this extensively and combated it in himself. I have not had it, only helped others to overcome this, eventually quite debilitating issue. Not long ago, he even addressed what I just said in my first paragraph. Anyway, check out his information here. Another leading authority regarding candida is Donna Gates and you can find her by googling Body Ecology in which her site has lots of info as well. Diet is the first place to start and detoxing.

Wishing you the best, Lisa

I've had brain fog for well over a year, so bad that I had a ct scan done. It gets better at times but always comes back, doctors told me it could be my allergies and cfs, I have trouble with memory concentration and always feel mentally drained. I've tried vitamin b complex with little success. Any ideas?

May be fluoride poisoning. Check whether your municipal water has fluoride. Detoxing fluoride will increase mental clarity. Read through Fluoride poisoning in EC. Borax, Tamarind Juice can help. Good Health.
