My Experience With Brain Fog

I am 50 years old now and can’t believe how fast time has past. I have realized that I have suffered from what I consider to be serious Brain Fog. I thought it was due to the aging process but after thinking about it I have come to the conclusion that I have suffered from fog my whole life. Then I didn’t even think about having a thinking problem and worst I didn’t know I had a problem. It was reflected in my report cards and the difficulty I had comprehending the course material. It was so bad I couldn’t seem to process a thought but it wasn’t because of a lack of intelligence it was because I couldn’t recall information when I needed to. As I got older it became obvious to me that I had a problem and I started thinking that I had mental retardation.

I started doing endless research to try to find out what it might be and if I could fix it. After many hours and eventually years of research it seemed that the fog was even getting in the way of trying to help myself. I tried many different types of supplements which seemed to have no effect or the wrong effect. I couldn’t go to the doctor because I didn’t have any insurance and I’m not so sure they could help anyway.

Years went by before I noticed that just by doing the research I was actually getting better at recalling information. I also noticed that this research has made me a lot smarter and I could spit out facts at random. With my increasing ability came better more focused and logical research and I knew I was getting closer to the answer.

I started trying to track down the cause and cure of my brain fog in 1995. It took me until 2012 (ironically the end of the world I thought) to finally start making some progress. Believe it or not the first thing that I noticed help clear some fog and increase my energy was calcium. Strange as it may seem it actually stopped me from falling asleep on my feet and helped me focus on the task at hand. Finally I had a glimmer of hope that there just may be a reason and a cure for my problem. I need to backtrack a minute and say that if you don’t suffer from this condition you don’t have any idea how hard it is to get through one day. It’s especially hard when you know people are thinking that you are lazy Buy Mind Lab Pro and stupid.

As I got better at knowing what research I needed to be doing I started finding other supplements that help some but not a lot. Then I started realizing the answer had to be in the basic make up the human body. It was the turning point in the seemingly lifelong quest to stop the brain fog and exhaustion. I can remember when I read that the mitochondria was the control center for human condition. That led me to read about acetyl l-carnitine and how it is basically food for the mitochondria. This is very interesting but how was this different from the basket full of supplements I already had. I also read that if you take it with alpha nupoic acid it increased the effect of both and since they are powerful antioxidants it sounded pretty promising. I decided, what could it hurt to give it a try accept I would add to my collection and I could scratch another promising cure off of my list.
