I wanted to share with you my personal experience and liberation of this terrible condition in hope that some of you may try it and hopefully get liberated as well. I use these terms that are more suitable for imprisoned simply because that is how I felt at the time and how I feel now.
Let me start…
My migraine headaches were severe, lasting for three days most of the times, and periods of not having them were getting shorter and shorter. So my desperation grew and I was living with my meds putting up with all negative side effects as I had no choice. Quality of living was very bad, my family suffered with me but was supportive at the same time. Even worse, sister of mine was experiencing same problem and we kind of thought we have hereditary condition that will never go away or will but at the later age – our mom was migraine sufferer until she went through menopause and after that she was free of them. Anyway, in between deliriums caused either by migraine or drugs, I was searching for solution to this growing problem. Guess what? It was all the time right before me, just needed to connect dots! Some years ago, I would come back from work, have a dinner, switch clothes and go to basement to continue with renovations I started myself and wanted to finish. After heavy physical work down there, I would take an aspirin before going to bed, simply to prevent muscle inflammation so that in the morning I can go back to work normally. I was doing IT job that was basically sitting all the time, thus my muscles were not trained for construction work. When I was thinking about those times, I remembered that my migraines were quite rare and I had attributed that to my younger age rather than connecting it to the aspirin intake. Well, I was wrong. It was aspirin that was doing it all the time. I just needed to recognize the culprit. I immediately started taking it before bed time and suggested to my sister to follow. Results were amazing with both of us. Migraines stopped and we both stopped taking our meds. Now… Normally, I should have been happy and celebrate this find, but I wanted to go one step further. I wanted to find natural supplement for aspirin in order to get myself free of drugs completely. Quick internet search confirmed what I already suspected – GINGER!!!!! I replaced aspirin intakes with ginger root intake and results were the same. My daily routine is simple and it is as follows – around 8PM I dice 4-5 grams of fresh ginger root and mix it with the teaspoon of honey. Leave it until the bed time, usually midnight time, and consume it completely, chewing and swallowing the entire content. My sister has a slight twist to the story. She takes half before going to bed, and half in the morning. She complained about having stomach upset and had to cut the intake to two halves in order to curb the upset stomach problem. That is it. Simple. This is a true story. I still get very mild migraines that last for a day or two once or twice a year! Strength of those attacks is way down and I can even function normally. Not to mention that frequency is also way down. Both of us are free of all migraine drugs and use ginger only. This switch to aspirin and finally to ginger happened approx. 3 years ago. I personally thank God for this journey and a final outcome. May God bless you in your struggle to find a remedy.
