Coconut oil for brain fog, who would have known this natural oil could dissolve the fog.
Many people experience this on occasion. The seemingly disconnect of thoughts or thinking through a haze. Mental clarity diminishes as the fog increases.
It is often described in different words, yet, is one in the same.
From mild to severe, it may seem sedating. Causing sleepiness and restlessness.
Some feel totally detached from their body. As if they are walking along side themselves.
I used to experience this when I ate a certain meat from a fast food restaurant.
Within minutes of eating this meat, my eyes would glaze over and I had no mental clarity. It felt like I was looking for myself. The fog seemed to cover my brain.
Feeling somewhat disoriented and out of sorts. Finding focus seemed impossible while the floating feeling continued.
This would stay with me for hours. And then, out of nowhere, it lifted and I was fine.
This also happened to a friend of mine. We knew the look, when it happened we would say "Your getting the fog". The eyes showed it before the mind felt it.
Since that time, my diet has changed drastically. I hadnt experienced this for years. Then menopause hit. Fortunately for me, I had come across coconut oil. Coconut oil dissolves the haze!. Such a simple solution.
I began to notice the haze return. Only on occasion, but that is enough for me to take action.
Feeling confused, not sure what I am doing and my movement seemed distant. Like being in a dream, outside the body.
I associated this with times I didnt take the oil as a supplement. Taking a dose( 2 tsp) would rectify my mental clarity and I would regain my mind.
With my mental clarity returned, I sailed on through the day.
It was not instantaneous but within 45 minutes, my brain was clear.
What causes this?

Reports from those that have experienced have given clues as to possible causes.
