Do you suffer from brain fag?
25year old Preeti complained that she was feeling lethargic since a month and an impaired memory. She would forget what has been spoken just a few minutes ago and her concentration levels were very low. This became a matter of concern for her. She said that her brains were very tired and she could not think clearly even though she had slept for 8-9hours/day. She was even stressed regarding her job. She then visited her homoeopathic doctor and after she narrated her worries, she was asked to do a blood test for her Vit B12 levels and Thyroid hormones. She was detected with Hypothyroid and marginally low Vitamin B12 levels also. She was prescribed Homoeopathic medicines with Vitamin B12 supplements for a month and tips on de-stress techniques. Slowly the fatigue was less and her concentration levels were better. She continued taking homeopathic treatment. She repeated the thyroid hormone test every 3 months for a year and her thyroid hormones were back to normal.
