  1. I have Gilbert’s syndrome I’m also menopausal, which is hell l also have fibromyalgia. I take pain medication too. What supplements would you recommend taking to help my liver clear brain fog and fatigue?

    1. Hi Sandra, I am in a similar situation (menopausal, joint pain and with GS). I have found the following helpful, turmeric and ginger are great anti-inflammatories and help me with my pain levels. Some people say that CBD oil helps them, although it does nothing for me I am afraid. As a vegan I consume a lot of soya milk and soya products and no milk or dairy, which it appears leads to fewer menopausal symptoms according to population studies. Being plant based, reducing sugar and processed foods also reduces inflammation levels in the body and is good for pain levels as well as menopausal symptoms. For brain fog and fatigue, as well as general wellbeing and good sleep, anxiety etc I have found taking ashwagandha and rhodiola have helped me immensely. Some people find ginseng works for them, but it hasn’t helped me. Ghotu Khola can give a boost if you need it, but has less impact than caffeine which can have quite a strong effect. There are more details on things (including supplements) that may help on the resources page, but I hope some of those help for now. For in depth advice and support you might want to seek help from a health and nutrition coach who can help you work out a plan specific to you (I’m a health and nutrition coach, which is why I’m suggesting it as sometimes general advice can only take you so far). Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.
