I have had brain fog now for ten years and it does make life hardwork and at times unbearable its worse for me in social situations where you cant carry on the conversation, bullies also seem to pick up on it as they see your defences are low. I have spent so much money trying to solve this,im talking thousands of pounds, im not wealthy by any means im 27 and still live with my parents because it holds you back so much, anyway im not here to rant i was here to try and put forward some of the things i have tried that have helped me over the last ten years, most things havnt worked,, but within the last 12 months i have seen improvements, where as before was unbearable now i can sort of function at work and i am much better socially, I saw a functional doctor, ive had so many tests for this that and the other over the years but one that shed some light on my 'invisible' illness was a viral screen for epsteinn barr, im not saying everyone with debiliatating fog has this but i would highly reccomend at least giving it some thought, an anti viral programme of 4 L-lysine,4,olive leaf extract, 3 humic acid a day along with a low carb and low lectin diet has helped me clear up some not all of the symptoms, its still frustrating as hell and a slow process but this info may help speed up your journey a little at least, joseph cohen has some good youtube posts on epsteinn barr, i hope this helps a few people out just so you know the antiviral protocol didnt seem to work for the first few months but then i saw benefits, one supplement which massively helped me was Mito q coq10,
and methylated b vitamins if im really struggling and i take these supplements they bring me round a little. if i was anyone struggling with fog id cut out gluten dairy soy and most the other major allergens to see if that helped gluten is horrendous and i would say a catalyst for many illness including fog

I do believe there are many pieces of the puzzle and some i am still looking for to further my recovery,
i have heard cats claw is a good antiviral, so i my add this

does anyone else have any insight, ive done so much,
inc meditation,FMT, Fasting, heavy metal chelation, changed diet, enemas, gaps diet, countless supplements,

let me know if im missing something?

cheers, hope we can all beat this shocker of an illness and hopefully soon it is recognised by not only fuctional doctors.

What about Ginkgo Biloba? I probably spelled that wrong. It is suppose to help with brain function.

UA thank you so much for posting the link, I was in the motion of doing the same!

Jame590, if you are not doing this, talk to your care giver in detail. If no more answers are forth coming, I suggest you find a Nutritionist, or Hololistic medicine doc.

Do not give up, I know how trusting this can be, eventually you will find an answer.

Peace

I do have some ginko in my supplements box which i have accumulated over the years i may get it out and give it a go once more, finding and treating the root cause of this is so difficult and expensive, £150 an hour my holistic doctor charges, and i am taking baby steps between appointments sometimes with no improvement what so ever, i wish there was a magic pill thats sort of what im looking for but im sort of giving up on the idea, my diet is relatively good, its hard to understand even for the professionals, one thing i feel like trying is monolaurin, I wouldnt class myself as particularry spiritual but i read about it in the book medical medium and im willing to give anything a try,

thanks for the replies, do you yourself s suffer from this too?
