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.

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.

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?
