The day I became migraine-free!!

I opened one eye just enough to ascertain that I had not closed the blinds last night and sunlight was streaming into the room. To most people, this would be a lovely way to start the day. For me, it was like a knife through my eye and into my skull. The throbbing that was a whisper just moments ago had become a full bass drum. Another migraine had kidnapped my day before it even started.

I closed my eye and pulled a pillow over my head. I needed to get up, but I knew that leaving my bed would bring on the nausea. I tried not to move; I tried to still my head and ride through the pain but I could not still my mind. I’ve had migraines since I was a teenager. All told, if I strung all of the headaches together, I’ve probably lost 14 years to the pain.

Acupuncture, avoiding food triggers, hospitalization, and even Botox injections are among the myriad cures I tried. The only relief was from a medication that cost $40 per dose that I had to use sparingly because insurance wouldn’t pay for it. And yet I was still in pain.

Migraines had robbed me of parties, time with my daughters, money for every treatment available, and a normal life. That day, as I lay in bed, I knew I had to find some way to get my life back.

Even though I thought I had tried everything, one cure had eluded me. I never thought a nutritional system could make any difference for migraine sufferers. I had tried avoiding the typical migraine-trigger foods with no success, so why would this work?

The system consisted of a combination of nutritional cleansing and detoxification of the body. I tried not to begin with a pessimistic attitude. The program promised to help with weight loss, improve restorative sleep, release toxins that can cause cancer, increase energy for enhanced exercise performance, it even claimed to support healthy aging. I read through all of the information, including the clinical study data. I had nothing to lose. I decided to try it.

The first migraine-free day was indescribable. I felt energetic and cautiously optimistic. The second day in a row was like a miracle. Unbelievably, I began my new life as a woman without migraines.

This new life includes waking up in the morning refreshed and unafraid to face the sun. I don’t need $40 pills anymore. I can go to parties and outings without worrying about a crippling migraine coming on and spoiling the fun.

My family is now my focus, rather than my migraines. I am happy, healthy, and really enjoying my life. I owe it all to this nutritional system. I can’t get those lost years back, but I can live the rest of my life to the fullest. I never thought I’d say it but… Life is great!

    Wellness,
    That is so incredibly exciting for you! How long have you been on the diet? Are there specific foods you stay away from? Do you cook more at home and is it hard to eat out because of your restrictions? I’m sure that it’s all worth it to be headache free!
