Which nootropics would help heal the brain from chronic cocaine use --clean now but my brain is fried--constant brain fog, extreme fatigue, depression and lack of motivation and focus -- recently lost my job due to my performance went downhill over the last year (and a bully for a boss). Please help and please dont judge me for my past...I need support! Thanks!
Raekwon nailed it with the Lions Mane - and I would add Phosphatidylserine with DMAE as neuroprotectives
Research Sulbutiamine - it will help your body synthesize B1 and should alleviate a lot of fatigue
Magnesium Glycinate, L-Tyrosine, and L-Theanine will help alleviate stress if you need it.
Low carbs, avoid the caffeine.
Problem is you're already looking to supplement the core issue here. The human mind is constantly seeking progress. Many experts actually consider progression at the core of ones happiness. Get healthy, in shape, and start chasing new opportunities asap. That's where your gonna find your results and happiness.
Second off congrats on wanting to improve your health and yourself!!
This is one of those times where I would recommend a really, really, good doctor. One who will run the extra battery if tests (I know one in NYC and LA). Usually these are DO's, not just MD's.
My doctor for example found several things that other doctors simply missed all these years. Also diagnosed me with adrenal fatigue. Since I've been on the supplement regimen proscribed I've been feeling better than I ever have.
Get the 'obvious' out of the way and it will make the rest easier.
Just my two cents.
I would begin at the beginning and make one change at a time. Here is a quick list of where one might start:
Probiotics - 'heal' the gut and get it more optimal at digestion
Omega 3 - 5000-10000mg per day.
Phosphadatic acids, to restore neuronal cell fluidity.
co-Q10 - 500mg per day to improve mitochondrial function
Get genetically tested to see what specific vits and mins you are deficient in.
OK would type more but at least you have something to think about.
