The article that changed my life
At age 38 I was already suffering for 13 years with chronic migraines and with no end in sight. I had just given birth to my second child and although it should of been the best time of my life, it was turning to be the worst. I was taking Relpax and Frova almost on a daily basis and the sleepless nights were not making things any better. I felt alone and isolated as it felt like no one understood the pain I was experiencing. I tried to cope as best I could but I felt myself going into a downward spiral and things got much worse once I went back to work.
Even through all this pain and despair I never gave up hope that one day I would be migraine free. I have tried several medication, massages, chiropractors, healers, changes in diet, botox and the list goes on. I would get either just temporary relief or none at all. My depression was getting the best of me and I wasn't even living anymore...just surviving.
That was when my life was completely changed. My sister had read an article in The Chatelaine magazine about migraines and life has not been the same since. It was about a guy out in Georgetown, Ontario, Canada who had a 90% success rate of curing migraines. I was very skeptical but really at this point what did I have to lose. I called them up and was there the next week with my 1st appointment. He asked if I cried when I read the article but I told him that I have been so disappointed in the past with all these "miracle cures" that I would have to see the results first.
I began treatment right away with him justing placing 6 needles in my head and hand and I felt no difference initially. I could pretty much time my migraines and i knew that I was due for one in the next couple of days. The days came and went and no migraine, I dismissed it as a fluke. I was doing my treatment every week and each week would come and go and no migraine. This is really working!!! It's been 5 weeks and I'm still in treatment but only 2 migraines and both were manageable. I can't explain it, it doesn't make sense but for the HUNDREDS of people that see him every week...it's working.
I hope that by telling my story this could help someone else out there who suffered as much as I did. There are no guarantees in life but we all have to try.
