32 Things to Learn About Your Gut!
The Continuing Pursuit for Migraine Elimination and Pain Reduction
The Migraine Headache - Gut LinkHolly's version! I say it's my version because I have not read much on the link between our neurological medical condition and the digestion in the science world. At least nothing that forms a formal conclusion in any one direction.
In the nutrition arena there are many claims to this link. I have written quite extensively on it, as I feel there is a huge connection. Science is behind the fact that the stomach digestion slows down to deal with the migraine.
Before and after attacks, some of us experience cravings for salty or sweet foods, or a complete loss of appetite. I throw up most solids but can tolerate soups and broths. Sorry, too much information!
Many years ago I was experimenting with diet, as you do when you are a migraine suffer, and I came across Donna Gates book called the Body Ecology Diet. It changed the way I looked at digestion. Read about that here Migraine Headaches Nutrition .
Now I know that in some cases, fermented food can bring on migraines - so you just have to experiment. But all of that aside, there is a wealth of information available here for us to use.
I have just come across her free Healthy Gut Summit that you might just want to check out. Discover how your digestive health is intimately linked to your immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems at The Healthy Gut Summit, free and online from February 9-16, 2015.
There is so much conflicting information around - in books, online, in the media - how can anyone be certain about anything anymore?
When you are on a quest to create health, happiness or a long enjoyable life you have to start somewhere. If you have not looked into this before, I think the Healthy Gut Summit is a great place to start!

Essential Migraine Tools
Building resilience all starts with having a plan. A solid pain management plan. These are like my four pillars of strength.
I highly recommend reading Cynthia Perkin's Mindfulness Over Migraines e-book that explains the science behind mindfulness and why it helps migraines. And she explains the method step by step that she uses to eliminate her migraines in 15 minutes. Yes, you read that correctly ... eliminate in 15 minutes. It will be the best $6.99 you ever spend!
Timing is everything when aborting a migraine attack.
Wild Divine Biofeedback
is an essential part of keeping my migraines at bay. This biofeedback training system will make the perfect Christmas gift for any migraine sufferer. Learning to control breath and body temperature will assist in reducing migraines. Meditation is proven to reduce migraine attacks. This will teach you all of that. I love mine.
Dr. Amy Myers Elimination Diet eCourse
is now an essential part of our tool kit. I know it is vital to find our migraine food triggers, and avoid them where ever possible. Dr. Myers is an autoimmune expert. Just what we need! This e-course will guide you every step of the way.
Share Your Migraine Stories
Remember that your contribution will help others too! We are not in this alone, even though it feels like it most of the time. Our stories and input can help each other.
For example, I heard about Naramig from a Shiatsu patient of mine, not my doctor or any of the specialists I had seen! Two years after triptans came on the market. Two years of needless suffering.
