I don't know how many people frequent this forum, I visit every now and then, but I was wondering how many people here have had their genetics tested by a doctor or through a website like 23&me?
I had never thought of it until I saw an article on the C677T gene and high homocysteine levels and how it related to migraine.
I did the 23&me report and ran my raw data through some health websites. While it has been overwhelming and hours spent researching, it was probably one of the best things I ever did for myself.
It has been the final piece to my health puzzle.
I was diagnosed with migraines with aura at 6 years old and have been dealing with it on and off all my life in some form or another. 3 years ago I had a few months of migraines every 3-4 days until I found magnesium and b2. But I was still getting migraines - mainly hormonal. then we moved to a southern state and I don't know how much was stress and how much was the change in my diet (harder to get good produce here and less organic) and I was getting 2 a month. the health reports really helped me to tailor my supplements and I have been migraine free for 4 months and I can take care of any headache at the first sign of it now.
So I was wondering if anyone else here has or have you thought about it?
