Brain Fog: What It Is & How To Treat It Naturally

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Brain fog is an experience that more and more of us are becoming far too familiar with. Unfortunately, western medicine often overlooks energetic imbalances in the body, so we need to turn to eastern medicine to understand and treat this condition.

  • Reflect On:

    How often do you experience brain fog and what tends to trigger it? Rather than turning to stimulant medications, try any of the following eastern treatments first!

Brain fog is a state of mental confusion. Some find it difficult to think, concentrate, or find the right words to say. Some have trouble recalling facts, faces, or events. Brain fog can also make a person feel unmotivated, depressed, anxious and moody as well. Many individuals with brain fog are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

Unfortunately, western medicine often overlooks energetic imbalances in the body. Our doctors will often put an individual on stimulant medication and send them on their way. With this approach, we are missing key opportunities to heal the body and beat brain fog naturally and effectively without potentially dangerous side-effects.

Eastern Medicine treats the body as a whole. No single organ can be understood except in relational to the whole person. It is the 2,500-year-old belief that the imbalance or blockage of Yin and Yang in the body leads to all disease. To maintain or restore balance – healthy food, acupuncture, moxibustion, homeopathy, Chinese herbal therapy and Reiki, is used to heal a person emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically.

Why Food Matters

For the body to be balanced and for the brain to work optimally, it must be harmonized and nourished. Eastern medicine practitioners understand the importance of nutrition, gut, and digestive health for a healthy mind.  Instead of focusing on the quantity of food and counting calories, the east focuses on the quality of the food, the flavour, temperature and how the food benefits the body. Understanding that food can be the most significant form of medicine or the most prominent type of poison, they emphasize the need to eat nutritionally dense food; free of processed salt, sugar, food additives and artificial chemicals.  Also, testing for food sensitivities, gut dysbiosis/yeast overgrowth and intestinal inflammation is essential, and they are often a culprit of brain fog and neurological dysfunction.

Acupuncture For Mental Health

To support proper neurological function, Chinese Medicine focuses on energetically balancing the five primary organ systems including the spleen, heart, lungs, liver and stomach to reduce systemic inflammation, help with the assimilation of nutrients, increase blood supply, and oxygenize blood to help the liver to store the blood to help send it into the brain.

Acupuncture has been treating and preventing illness and disease for over 2,000 years.  And many scientific studies demonstrate the benefits.  A study in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences demonstrated that acupuncture can reduce anxiety and insomnia. And, the Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine reported that acupuncture also improves mental clarity and alertness.

There are no adverse side effects, and the needles are tiny and thin, causing little to no pain.

The basic theory of acupuncture starts with the meridian system and flow of energy (called Qi, pronounced “chee”) between organs and the blood. Acupuncture is used to regulate the functions of organs via the flow of energy and blood through the meridian system. The needles balance the blood flow between the right and left frontal lobes of the brain and help improve neurological functioning.

For mental clarity, memory, concentration, and alertness an acupuncturist may focus on the following points.  If an acupuncturist is not around, applying light pressure to these acupressure points can also assist as well:

Middle of a Person – between upper lip and nose

Sea of Tranquility – upper part of the ribcage between the breasts

Three-Point Mile – the outer edge of the leg

Bigger Rushing – on top of the foot

One Hundred Meeting – back of the top of the head

Sun Point – outside of the eyebrows

Gates of Consciousness – the base of the skull

Heavenly Pillar – below the base of the skull

Third Eye Point – between the eyebrows

Acupuncture is also extremely helpful in aiding the body to eliminate toxic burden which can help improve memory, speech, learning and mental clarity. Studies demonstrate that detoxing from systemic yeast, bacterial infections such as Lyme, viral overload, heavy metal, and other environmental toxins can lead to improved mental performance. Acupuncturists often work on the liver and gallbladder meridian points to clear toxins.

Burn Moxa To Enhance Acupuncture Treatments

Commonly known as “mugwort,” Moxa is burned near the body to stimulate acupuncture channels and warm the body to dry dampness which can cause brain fog. In a study of mice featured in the Journal of Evidenced Based Complementary Medicine, moxibustion positively impacted behavior, learning, cognition, memory and focus by changing the oxidant state in the central nervous system. Moxa is also used to boost the immune system, manage inflammation, reduce pain and increase energy.

Homeopathy: Energy Medicine For The Body & Mind

Homeopathy is a system of medicine originated in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann.  Native American Indians practiced this form of natural healing before it was coined homeopathy. Homeopathy can treat all your symptoms at all levels of your being – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. It helps dissipate blockages in an individual’s subtle energy that may be preventing the individual’s body wisdom from healing the chronic or acute illness.

Homeopathy works on the law of nature, that “like cures like.” A patient suffering from symptoms can be treated and cured by minute doses of a substance (mineral, animal or plant) capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person very much like an allergy shot aims to do. Except, homeopathy has little-known side-effects and can reach deep inside the body and gently nudge it to trigger the body to heal itself, in a way western medicine cannot. Highly diluted, non-toxic remedies are prepared. They taste a little bit sweet, are odorless and taken orally. According to the World Health Organization, it is the second largest therapeutic system used in the world.

The aim of a study in the European Journal of Pediatrics was to obtain scientific evidence of the effectiveness of homeopathy in ADHD. That randomized, partially blinded trial and a clinical observation study, concluded that homeopathy did in fact have positive effects in patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) particularly in the areas of behavioral and cognitive development.

Using Chinese Herbal Therapy To Stay Clear Minded

Chinese herbology has been used for over 5,000 years and is the oldest medical system in the world.  Like other Chinese medicine modalities, herbal therapy (herbs, minerals, and other extracts) aims to balance and regain homeostasis in the body to strengthen one’s resistance to illness and disease.  Chinese herbal medicine also treats emotional and neurological conditions quite successfully.

Some Chinese herbs traditionally used for brain fog, ADHD, anxiety, and focus:

  • Reishi mushrooms – can bring calm and help maintain focus.

  • Bacopa – reduces mental fatigue and improves cognition (learn more)

  • Ginko Biloba – increases blood flow to improve clarity and memory.

  • Acorus – known as Shi Chang Pu in Chinese herbology this herb transforms damp it works well for people suffering from a cloudy mind.

  • Chai Hu – reduces stress and depression to increase memory.

  • Jujubes or Chinese dates – restores balance and replenishes Qi; produces red blood cells to calm the mind

  • Siberian ginseng – reduces fatigue, supports adrenals and increases clarity (learn more)

  • Bu Nao Wan – an ancient herbal remedy believed to clear brain fog, increase alertness and focus. It is a combination of many herbs including ginseng, bamboo sap, dragon tooth, dang gui, and others

Reiki: Channeled Energy Aimed at Supporting the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal

Reiki is an ancient Japanese method of healing, promoting the body to heal itself.  Dating back to the late 19th century, it is a “laying on of hands” approach.  The practitioner channels an unseen “life force energy,” and helps balance the client’s body and mind.  Reiki is used to heal a person’s physical health, as well as maintain harmony and systemic balance in the brain and nervous system without side effects.

Please ensure that you are obtaining high quality sourced supplements, homeopathy preparations, and herbs. To avoid any potential side-effects, consult a highly skilled functional health care provider, homeopath, naturopath or a trained herbalist before taking these or giving medicinal remedies to children.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

Much Love

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needle-less acupressure is often used on children.
