8 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

im 23 and have been gluten free now for about 6 months and had a huge boost in my health as a result insomnia and headaches 80% better ive had numerous slip ups and and cross contaminations over the past few months were my insomnia and headaches return! but during strict gluten free periods there is one symptom that never seems to go away... BRAIN FOG and stammering.

Does this mean i have more unknown food allergies? Has anyone else cured themselfs from this debilitating symptom? If so how long did it take?

gluten free

milk free

egg free

shellfish free

oranges free (diagnosed through food logs)

Any help is much appreciated

regards James :)

I have been gluten-free for about 10 months (plus 2 if you count the period where I was trying to be gluten-free but ignorant of its presence in everything). I also had to drop dairy, quickly followed by soy.

I can no longer tolerate caffeine, but in the early months I hit the coffee hard when I had brain fog. I also slammed water. Now I stick to the water. Drink more than you think you need. You can literally 'flush' the gluten out of your system; the faster the gluten goes, the sooner symptoms like brain fog go away.

I have also read that green tea helps, but I haven't tested that myself on account of the caffeine.

Good luck!

I agree...try ditching the soy, it may help!

It's in everything--watch for soy lecithin, soy protein isolate, hydolyzed vegetable protein.

It's like gluten--used as fillers and texturizers, so you have to play detective.

Good luck!

I had a suggetion of a B50 complex from someone...I don't have a verdict on it yet myself (tried it today, but I have such a headache I can't think straight anyways) but it's worth a shot!

B12 is a nice boost too. I take it every day, but I increase the dose for a few days after I CC'd.

Cutting out gluten has reduced my brain fog considerably. I had brain fog so bad at times, that I was afraid to drive when I felt it for fear I could cause an accident. This past year I was able to start carpooling again and am so thankful that I can give and share rides again. I have found green tea to be helpful and vitamin B-12 although I no longer notice the effects of B-12 supplementation like I used to (I take sublingual). I assume this may mean that my levels have returned to normal. I do not take B-12 every day, but I generally drink green tea every day - usually decaf. I have also noticed a mood improvement after taking protein powder - maybe it is the tryptophan.

Now I only feel brain fog if I have accidentally eaten gluten or if I have PMS. I recently tried Oasis Serene (Progesterone cream) and it lifted my brain fog almost immediately so I know there can be other culprits for brain fog besides gluten. I realize this won't help the men on this board, but perhaps there could be a different hormone out of balance responsible for your brain fog?
