Last May I joined the forum and  I had gone gluten free a couple of months before.  I suffered 30+ years and have tried many things to cope with undiagnosed celiac. Now, I know what enemy I am facing, so I can cope much better. I am no longer tired all of the time.  I don't wake up as tired as I was before retiring anymore.  I don't always need a nap.  Thinking back over the years, there are many things that helped.  These will be in order of my recollection:

 

The herb fennel.  I made cookies with these, lost water weight, and gained energy.

 

Exercise:  Sometimes it would perk me up, but alas other times it devastated me.

 

CoEnzyme Q 10 supplement.  (It gave me energy and more alertness.)  In the end of my gluten years, it no longer helped.  I take a little now with my supplements.

 

I cut out sweets

 

I raise my own food. 

 

Sunshine.

 

Naps (Sometimes help)

 

I got mold out of the house. (Except that washing machine)

 

Back adjustments:  Six years back I nearly died.  I began having adjustments and doing exercises for my back.  In the beginning, I noticed I sometimes came out of the fog after doing these exercises.  Sometimes I noticed that I could breath easier.

 

Vitamin Supplements as recommended by my chiropractor.  These were miracle workers for me.

 

Get enough fat.  I get to feeling sluggish without coconut, olive, or butter with 3 meals a day.

 

Gluten Free Diet

 

Grain Free Diet

 

Pancreatic Enzymes

 

Washing nuts and legumes before eating.(This is here Thanks to Steph)

 

Food intolerance test/Rotational diet

 

Herbs for adrenal gland support

 

I will come back and edit this if and when I think of more things.  If you are tired, don't give up until you try all of these and more.  I made much better progress when I had help.

 

IF you have been helped by something put it below.

I'm so glad that things are getting better for you.  That brain fog is terrible.  I get it too.
