Ever felt like you’re moving underwater? Or maybe just your brain is? It can hit you in the middle of the day, after the morning coffee has worn off and your lunch is happily sitting in your stomach—productivity slows and brain fog rolls in. Or maybe you’re a Monday morning brain fog person, where you just aren’t moving as quickly as the day and people around you.
1. Si Shen Cong, 4 Extraordinary Points on the top of your head.
Si Shen Cong are a group of four acupuncture points located on top of the head. They belong to a group of points, called "Extraordinary Points." The Si Shen Cong points have a strong stimulating effect on all aspects of the mind and spirit or "Shen." They are also used for headache, vertigo, insomnia, epilepsy, and of course, brain fog. They also help to clear the mind and calm the Shen, which can help with decision making in stressful situations.
Locate these points: You can locate these points by locating the vertex of the head, finding the midpoint (this location is the acupoint DU20 below), then finding a group of four points, about one inch respectively anterior, posterior, and two points lateral to the midpoint DU20.
2. DU20, the vertex of your head.
DU20 is also a powerful point for the brain and has a calming effect on the Shen. It has a very strong raising function, which makes it excellent for stirring up the mind and bringing your attention back. It can increase yang energy in the body, which leaves you feeling warm and invigorated. It is located at the vertex of the head, or very top of it.
Locate these points: The easiest way to find DU20 is to gently fold over the ears back to front and from the top where they come to a point when you have folded them, connect that line to the top of the head and that where you will find DU20. The DU meridian starts below the tip of the tailbone and runs up the midline of the body, over the head and ends on the inside of the upper lip where the frenulum joins the upper lip and gum.
It’s an incredibly powerful meridian for brain fog and all cognitive functions as it is said to innervate the brain.
3. KI 1, or Kidney 1, on the bottom of your foot.
