Migraine - Welcome to my life but possible helpful solution
Last updated: October 2020
Like so many of you, I have tried everything under the sun to try to get these migraines under control. Food, weather, stress, and for no accountable reason, just because, I get a migraine. The worst are the ones that wake you up in the middle of the night. I get the ax type that feel like your head is going to split open. I should also mention, my migraines started 22 years ago - a week after the birth of my third child.
However, I think I've found something that appears to be helping me. A friend of mine told me about a book that after a month and a half, has so far changed my life. The Beauty Detox Solution by Kimberly Snyder is revolutionary. The premise is to change a body from acidic to alkaline. It is a diet that is organic, gluten and dairy free. No preservatives, nitrates, MSG, etc. Yes, mainly vegetables, fruit, and little meat. It's not just about what you eat but how you eat. Because of amitriptyline, I've gained a lot of weight and so far I've lost 14 lbs. My headaches are not gone but MUCH less severe. I'm actually having symptom free days which I haven't had in years! I'm doing so much better that my husband insists I stay on this diet!
Are the family and friends you will be seeing this holiday season understanding about migraine?
