Any help would be great!

Ive eliminated gluten,soy, eggs, citric acid, all grains, white potatoes , chicken , pork and beef, and all fish!

I have horrible habbit of not chewing my food and eating extremly fast which i have been working on and learning slowly to take my time when i eat.

I eat all veg and rare meats and try to not eat things with sugar in them!

However, my brain fog is still with me 24/7 in the past 6 months ive had one day of clarity!

the only supplement i take is L -Glutamine to help my leaky gut repair!

could anyone advise me on the next step i should take to remove this brain fog!

Thank you

Vitamins ..the B vitamins especially, but also calcium,D,C,E,K, iron, magnesium and zinc.

Brain fog can be nutritional deficiency related.

Just curious...What meat do you eat if you avoid all beef, pork, chicken and fish?

Is it wild game?

Dairy (casein) affects me just as badly as gluten and soy. My symptoms were mostly neuro, and the brain fog that I had for years lifted entirely after a few weeks free of those things.

Is the brain fog a lifelong problem? I have ADD and going gluten-free did alleviate a bit of brain fog, getting me back to my usual level of mental disorganization. There's no cure for ADD although it is highly treatable.

I really sympathize. Have you tried a full complement of amino acids? I'm trying to figure out the celiac connection - I think it has something to do with protein absorption. regardless I've seen a big improvement in energy and mental clarity. Otherwise, if it is celiac caused, it may be that not enough time has passed. I've been off gluten for a year and am still seeing big steps in health improvements.

I don't post much up on here because I've dealt with Celiac's for 7 years now.

I see people post about every single thing that I went through and now have for the most part solved.

I would seriously look at Candida in the sinuses for brain fog. I used to suffer from it and no matter what I did to my diet it still stuck around. Killing anything in the sinuses is a real pain.

You can do the Candida diet, take all the meds(I was on Nystatin for 4 months) but none of it will kill it in the sinuses.

This is what I have done and have had amazing luck with it. I've had the massive anxiety, panic attacks, memory fogginess, lack of concentration, etc...if I eat wrong or overdue it, usually on sugar I can bring on the worlds worst attack.

They used to last weeks, starting with panic attacks, anxiety, then that constant headache, lack of concentration, and finally relieving itself after a month or so.

I use a Neti pot now with Grapefruit Seed Extract. GSE kills just about anything on contact. In the course of 2 days I wipe out what growth is there and return myself to normal.

I put in 3-4 drops of GSE in a Neti Pot, actually I use a Sinease from Waterpik, basically an electric neti pot, plus the saline solution in 8oz of water. Mix VERY well and make sure the water is luke warm. I invert my head and make sure I get some to flow as much as possible into the frontal sinuses then wash through the rest.

It will burn the first few times and if I have a Candida infection I can tell instantly because it smells like burning wood, after the 3-4 treatment the burning wood smell is gone.

I do it twice a day morning and night.

YMMV but it has worked great for me. I'd love to get others feedback because after dealing with Candida for so long as going gluten-free this was my last piece of the puzzle. I think a lot of people here post about issues relating to Celiac's but in reality its a Candida overgrowth because the symptoms are so similar.

Good luck and if you decide to try it I'd love to hear the results.

I second what other people have been saying - it's probably due to a nutritional deficiency.

I have been more diligent about taking my vitamins, along with glutamine. Make sure you're taking:

A good multi-vitamin

B-complex

Sublingual B12

Iron

Additional D3

My Iron was actually a little low and I think that's actually been making a pretty difference.

    • Jameson Irish whiskey, knob Creek single barrel, southern comfort original, bird dog apple flavored whiskey, captain morgan private stock, crown royal, and Maker's Mark whiskey?
    • Thanks for the information really appreciated 
    • There are some enzymes you can take to lessen the gut symptoms, they help break it down quicker to get over it faster. Your antibodies will still flare up for the next few weeks and weak havoc with your immune system so it is mostly damage control. Go easy on your gut everyone is different in terms of easy to digest foods. I myself use coconut and konjac porridge the next couple days of with egg whites and nothing solid. Others swear by broths, soups, sweet potatoes, rice porridge, and slow cooked meats.
      Imodium helps if you have D, if you get C like me up your magnesium, I use magnesium calm but rotate in more doctors best which is easier on the gut when glutened. Peptobismal many swear by. GasX can help also. Anise (not star anise) can help with bloat and gas also. Teas are wonderful, drink plenty of liquids regardless.



       
    • Hi all: I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2010 with blood testing and small bowel biopsy.  I have been following a gluten-free diet since and a lot of my symptoms and skin problems have gotten better.  However, I was at the beach and got bitten by flies and after biopsy of my legs and a whole Hurd of blood tests the diagnosed me with pyroderma gangrenosum (PD).  It is very painful and takes a long time to heal.  There is some research out there that does relate pyroderma gangrenosum to any inflammatory bowel disease.  I could only attach one photo but I hope this helps others to know PD is a big problem.  
    • Yeah my family stopped doing gifts a few years ago when we had a grandparent on each side of the family die. After that no one meets up, no gifts, no one even does cards. I tried 2 years ago to give all my relatives gifts, hand written cards......None of them even said thanks. Next year I said I will not give out cards or gifts unless one of them send me something....and well I did not even get a card. Funny thing is my birthday falls on the 16th of Dec so nothing from any relatives for 2 years in the month of December hit me pretty hard. I know my disease caused me to burn bridges and be a bit more secluded but it was ridiculous to the point that the past 2 years I have been sending myself on vacation the same way, hotel, and location that my family used to spend on vacations when we were a family.

      Sorry for the self pity thing, I was just pointing out that my extended family other then my parents (they still help me out and care) do not care about the holidays anymore. And I consider several members here, as messed up as it might be a "I care about your health and life" more so  then my actual aunts, uncles, and cousins. So I figured I might not be rich but if we had a secret santa type thing I could at least afford to send one person a gift.

      Funny how this community is more family to me then the one I grew up in. I guess it has to do with relating to people here more, feeling of caring, and overall support.

      I swear one of these days we do need to have some kind of meet up lol, would be crazy....oddly enough I can see certain members from our group being at each others throats, while others would be like arms around the shoulders singing carols....the mental image is quite amusing.

      But yeah I do wish I could send everyone here a gift or card, but you know how the financial issues are. If I ever when the lottery I am gifting everyone lol.
