Breakthrough Migraine Cure!

I've been suffering with Migraines since I went through puberty at 11yrs old. Once a month,after my menses,I would begin to develop a migraine. The pain lasted anywhere from 24-72hours.During this painful episode I would experience light sensitivity,nausea,dizziness,and irritability to loud noises. My physician experimented with Rx migraine medication,Acetaminophen,Ibuprofen, Naproxen,Advil,Caffeine,and even Narcotics. Nothing worked. The migraines began to affect my work performance at least once a month,and I was at my wits end. I went to Rite aide one day before work,and purchased multivitamin supplements to begin taking. I was short on time,so I stashed the bottle in my purse. Later on at work,I felt a migraine coming on,so I took Advil and a Multivitamin. Miraculously, he pain went away! In the following months I experimented with Just Advil or Just the Multivitamin. I had a hunch that something else was going on so my doctor agreed to get blood work on me. As it turns out,I am Anemic,and when my menses ends,my body is low in iron. Ever since I was diagnosed,I have been able to prevent the migraines,as long as I take my vitamins . If any males/females are suffering from chronic migraines,please get a complete blood count,to rule out whether or not your iron levels are low. It just might help tremendously. Good luck!

  1. Redhourglass,
    That's fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing. This could definitely help others searching for answers!

    1. After working with people who have suffered with Migraines, I started testing some organic juices and how it works in the body. I allowed a few friends to test it and now they are blown away! The results have been amazing! After drinking 8oz per day the results have been 100%!! We have seen Migraines disappear, we have seen psoriasis disappear, regrowth to hair and major skin improvement. I am thinking about putting this out for others to try.

      1. RedHourGlass - thanks for posting this. I'm not anemic, but I'm wondering if my iron levels impact my migraine frequency regardless. I think I get more migraines when my iron is lower.

        The Iron Disorders Institute has a fact sheet out called "Ferritin: an important part of the iron panel" that suggests that "normal" should be 50-150 ng/mL for adult women, not 12-150 ng/mL - and a Google Scholar search will pull up the literature behind this. My level two weeks ago was 27 ng/mL.

        I'm now taking iron bisglycinate, a new type of iron supplement that is easy on the stomach because it is well absorbed when attached to the amino acid glycinate. It's been a week of that, and maybe a month of iron supplements in general, and I haven't seen a difference yet, but it could take months to get my iron up to a level where it makes a difference. And I recently re-tried Zoming, and it seems to help now for some reason. Maybe I needed higher iron levels to help?

        I'll try to remember to come back and update this post in a month or two, to let you and other readers know how things worked out.

        In the meantime, congrats and thanks for posting!

        1. I have to urge everyone, however - do NOT start taking iron supplements unless you first take a ferritin test to see if you are in fact low in iron.
          I have had migraines for years - turns out I had iron overload from vitamin supplements.
          Your body stores excess iron - and once you have too much, the only way to lower your levels is through phlebotomy or blood donation.
          So if you think you are anemic, please get a blood test first.
