BRAIN FOG - CAUSES AND TREATMENT
• 8 min. read
Brain fog can range from mild to severe and even devastating for many people. This condition can interfere with work, relationships, daily life and cause a person to doubt themselves and lose confidence. For some people, the brain fog is so severe that they can't keep a job, maintain relationships, or even get out of bed.
Brain fog is often dismissed as a mild symptom, laziness, or the result of lack of sleep, but it can actually be a debilitating condition and should be taken seriously. The first step to treating brain fog is to understand its true cause.
Real causes of brain fog
The two main causes of brain fog are viruses and toxic heavy metals in the body. Although one can have viruses without toxic heavy metals and vice versa, most people with brain fog experience both.
Viruses, such as Epstein-Barr , reside in the liver and feed on foods they like. Medical studies and science are not aware that viruses are alive and must be fed to survive, and that they enjoy certain foods that we consume, such as eggs, gluten and dairy products. In addition to these foods, they also feed on the toxins we have in our bodies, such as toxic heavy metals, pesticides and fungicides. After the viruses eat the problem foods and toxins, they release a byproduct, and it is this byproduct that Anthony William calls viral neurotoxins. After the virus releases a neurotoxin, it makes its way into the bloodstream and up to the brain. All neurons in the brain are highly sensitive and allergic to neurotoxins. When neurotoxins enter the brain, they weaken neurons and can short-circuit neurotransmitters, leading to symptoms of brain fog.
Another cause of brain fog is toxic heavy metals in the body , such as mercury, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, copper and lead. These heavy metals not only feed the viruses in the liver, as mentioned above, but they make their way to the brain and become lodged in the brain tissue. When heavy metals become trapped in brain tissue, they begin to oxidize, rust, and corrode in your brain. This corrosion begins to spread to other brain tissues and can worsen brain fog over the years, potentially leading to impaired memory.
The first step in removing brain fog is to rid the body of toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, copper and lead. The best remedies for removing these metals are spirulina , barley grass juice powder , wild blueberries , fresh cilantro and Atlantic dulce . To reach the deep-seated metals in the brain and liver, it is best to combine all five of the wild foods and herbs described above. If you don't have access to all five of these ingredients, focus on including at least three of them, which can also be very helpful. When we combine these five ingredients, they work together to safely displace and remove toxic heavy metals from the liver, brain, blood and tissues. A great way to get all these healing wild foods and herbs into your diet is to consume a heavy metal detox smoothie daily . Another option is to do the heavy metal cleanse as described in Anthony William's book Cleansing for Health .
An important step in treating brain fog is to work to destroy the viruses in the body. Whether you're struggling with brain fog or have another symptom or condition, including fibromyalgia , rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS) , Lyme disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, mysterious migraines, tingling and numbness, cloudiness in the eyes, pain, fatigue or anxiety, they are all the result of viruses in the body, such as Epstein-Barr . To start working on removing viruses from your body, it is best to start by eliminating their favorite foods, which include: eggs, gluten, dairy products such as milk, cheese and butter. When viruses and pathogens in the body consume these foods, they become even stronger, symptoms and conditions can worsen, and brain fog can persist.
Celery stem juice is one of the best weapons for fighting brain fog. Not only is this juice a complete electrolyte, which is crucial for the brain and body, but it's also an antiviral and can help kill viruses in the liver that contribute to brain fog. Celery stem juice is a herbal medicine and consuming 500 ml. up to a liter of celery juice every morning can help make a noticeable improvement when you suffer from brain fog. If you are new to using celery stalk juice, feel free to start with 100 ml. and gradually reach 500 ml. or liter daily.
Nutritional supplements that can support the brain and nervous system include: Magnesium glycinate , B12 in the form of adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, and GABA . See the medicalmedium.com directory for recommendations for high-quality supplements, most of which you can also find in Bulgaria at prividnik.com . In the book "Cleanse for Health" you can find the complete protocol with recommended nutritional supplements and their amounts for the treatment of brain fog (foggy thinking).
Reducing the amount of fat in your diet is another important treatment tool. Eating a high-fat diet thickens the blood and can make it impossible for viruses, heavy metals, and other toxins to be cleared from the liver and body, causing brain fog to persist. Fat radicals also block the access of critically needed glucose to your brain. Why is it necessary for glucose to enter the brain? Glucose, which is sugar, is one of the most important parts of treating brain fog! The brain runs on glucose and for this reason it is extremely important to get enough. The best way to increase glucose is to include fruits, sweet potatoes, winter squash and sweet potatoes in your diet. When used correctly, these foods can be amazing remedies and are a must for clearing brain fog. While introducing these healing foods, consider cutting back on high-fat foods such as meat, chicken, fish, nuts, nut oils, seeds, coconut oil, avocados, oils, and soy. Limit these foods to once a day instead of two or three times a day. It's best to avoid pork altogether.
Including more medicinal herbs, green leafy vegetables and fruits in your diet, such as parsley, sage, onions, kiwis, tangerines and lettuce, can help keep the body in balance as you work to clear your body and circulation of heavy metals and viruses . The Healer's Medium Elixir of Kale and Ginger with Honey is another amazing remedy that can provide quick relief from brain fog and help you get out of the loop while you work on your healing.
