Who We Help

Brain Fog

Acupuncture is a natural, holistic way to manage the symptoms of brain fog, which can be a difficult malady to pin down in Western medicine, as these feelings may not always be indicative of any identifiable disease or condition. These symptoms may include memory problems, lack of mental clarity, fatigue, difficulty completing tasks, trouble concentrating, or regularly feeling confused or overwhelmed. It can be easy to make excuses for why we feel foggy headed, unfocused, forgetful, or generally not like ourselves. It is common to blame these things on a stressful period in life or having extra responsibilities at work or home, but according to Traditional Chinese Medicine,

brain fog can often signal an imbalance in the systems of our body that we rely on for effective processing and optimal functioning.

Here at The Medicine Tree we offer a multifaceted approach to targeting the root cause of these issues, with options for our patients such as individualized nutritional counseling, sustainably sourced and properly prescribed Chinese herbs, and Five Element Acupuncture. These methods treat brain fog and the associated symptoms by:


  • Improving sleep quality and duration 

  • Stimulating the nervous system and activating brain function

  • Regulating hormones

  • Providing comprehensive lab testing that can indicate the presence of any pathogens, nutrient deficiencies and/or absorption issues. (Here is one example of the tests we offer.)

  • Creating individualized nutritional care plans tailored to each individual’s lifestyle and nutritional needs. This helps our patients implement lasting change with the support of our knowledgeable team.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been proven to improve cognitive function, in both human and animal studies.


Clear focused thoughts and healthy sleep patterns signify a healthy symbiosis between the many systems in your body. There are endless ways that imbalance in the mind, body or spirit can manifest, and it is indeed different for each and every person. According to Five Element theory, every person is composed of the same five elements that make up the natural universe, and it is said that when one element is out of balance, it can affect the functioning of the entire system, much in the way that one faulty circuit can prevent electricity flowing to an entire section of a building, plunging many rooms into darkness. Acupuncture stimulates energetic meridians, which are similar to neural pathways, that run throughout our entire body. Any blockage in the flow of Qi can cause interruption to the healthy balanced flow our bodies require to function optimally. By treating each patient holistically, that is mind, body and spirit, we leave no stone unturned in getting to the root cause of symptoms that may be keeping you from reaching your highest potential.
