Brain fog

I found this very interesting article whilst researching bloating , as i seem to suffer terrible brain fog, especially if i get stressed. I also tend to stutter, as i cant get the words im trying to say out , and its usually when i get stressed!!!

as long as I am calm i can cope, but the moment any one shouts at me , my stress levels soar, and everything goes out of my head and it freezes...!!! its very frightening and distressing!!! if anyone else suffers like i do I thought this may help.

kind regards

Ummm... It's not really an article, is it. It's an ad to sell his book. smacks a bit of scaremongering to me. Don't really like this man.

ok grey ,, just thought it may help





You may very well have brain fog (me too) but I think what you describe is quite a normal reaction to being treated with aggression and disrespect. Who is shouting at you and why? Possibly they are the ones displaying abnormal behaviour. x


You seem, to suffer all these symptoms when you are stressed.

Then you have to seriously sit down, and ask yourself truthfully, what is upsetting you.

Sit down with a piece of paper and be absolutely honest, list them all, then see what you can put aside to be dealt with later, try to get the stresses down to only 2/3 to focus on, at one time.

You can only mentally deal with a few stresses at a time, so don't overload your system, not worth it..

NOTHING, is worth getting yourself into this stress state, it is not worth it, and can only do you harm.

Take care Astro
