What I Don't Eat Saved Me

After 2 clinical trials, it's obvious that hemiplegic migraines for me are caused only by what I eat.

Foods I choose to avoid

For 30 years I have avoided processed protein (hydrolyzed protein, concentrated protein, texturized protein), MSG, and aspartame- even in chewing gum or pills. 100% migraine-free until I eat something by mistake. This requires lots of label-reading and refusal to eat anything until I know exactly the ingredients, and not eating other people's food unless single ingredients like "carrots", "strawberries", but it really pays off!!
