September 10, 2023 — For years I struggled with brain fog until one day when I discovered the magic of raw vegan.

Hello, my name’s Andrew and this is a step-by-step guide on how to cure brain fog with a raw vegan diet.

1. Gut Healing

Last year I was in the Adirondacks when I ran into this guy who was handing out leftover pastries, which I normally would have declined being gluten-free, but I was hungry from hiking, so I was like: “screw it.”

Big mistake! Because that night I got extremely sick and couldn’t stop vomiting for three days straight.


Initially I thought about taking antibiotics, but I was already struggling with weak digestion and dropping a nuclear bomb on my gut didn’t seem like the best idea at the time.

So I just recovered naturally, but over the next few weeks I noticed that eating certain foods would trigger this freakin’ hurricane of vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gastritis, and acid reflux.
