The Continuing Pursuit for Migraine Elimination and Pain Reduction

More On The Migraine Headache - Gut Link

How many different diets have you tried to eliminate your migraines?

Let's see, I can count about 100! OK, maybe not a hundred but it sure feels like it. I have been experimenting with diets for over twenty years to try and help reduce my migraines.

Ok, I know we are all a bit time poor these days but I just read over some of the speakers for the Healthy Gut Summit and wanted to share some of the following speakers that may be relevant to us as migraineurs and women:

• Brenda Watson - Author of Skinny Gut Diet talks about how to change the gut microbiome to lose weight

Essential Migraine Tools

Building resilience all starts with having a plan. A solid pain management plan. These are like my four pillars of strength.

Build Your Own Migraine Tool Kit - Here is our article with eleven steps on exactly how to do it yourself! It has all the forms you need to print out and step by step instructions to navigate your way through effective chronic pain management.

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 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.

This is a safe place to share your challenges and tell your story to people who truly understand what you are going through. Share your art to inspire us all in our time of need.

Find solutions with new treatment ideas specific to migraine disease, and get some professional health advice from others that walk this path. Just click on the links underlined above if you would like more details.
