Brain Fog, as a new syndrome, with the symptoms of slowed-down cognitive response, memory loss, inability to concentrate, or/and the symptoms of dizziness and sleep disturbance, are commonly observed and considered as the consequence of long Covid. Studies on this new syndrome are few, but the number of patients has kept rising, along with the increasing infection of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Brain Fog has, therefore, developed as one of the biggest crises in the modern medical system and a constant threat to the wellbeing of contemporary society. Following the previous studies, we aim to provide an alternative and supplement view in diagnosing and treating Brain Fog from the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) perspective, with a list of TCM treatment approaches (including Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Dietary conditions, and others), based on the TCM theory that implies Brain Fog origins from the heart, appears in the brain. Our proposed TCM treatment applies the principle of combining heart and brain, in terms of nourishing the heart, tranquilizing the mind, clearing orifices, and the refreshing brain. Together with the proposed TCM treatments, we expect this paper to bring an alternative understanding of Brain Fog and an economic healing approach to help Covid-19 survivors improve their well-being.
