Food & Supplement Testing Journal With An 8 Week Plan
Finding your best food for migraine relief can feel impossible a lot of the time. There are so many variables.
This 8-week food and supplement testing journal can help track your progress and forge a new path to pain free possibilities. With lots of guidance and options. For starters it can help you determine if one of your food triggers is carbohydrate based (with only 2 foods). You'll test supplements and other lifestyle choices that might help reduce those nasty attacks.
You can monitor sleep quality, mood, and bowel movements, migraine occurrence, frequency, and severity. With my guidance, you'll choose and test magnesium (there are a few to choose from); vitamin B2, and other things proven to help reduce attacks and improve overall wellbeing.
You'll also learn how to hydrate yourself properly.
Here's a brief excerpt from the book:
This 8-week plan has been inspired by Dr. Andrew Weil’s book “8 Weeks to Optimum Health” which is old now, but it is still a great way to get started on increasing your overall health and wellbeing. And hopefully reducing attacks!
He has a fantastic week by week plan to change your habits and your whole lifestyle. I briefly review this. So, each week he suggests adding vitamins, minerals, exercising, and meditation. With nutrition, he suggests adding one thing each week. This is what we are doing.
You will also be adding breathing exercises (meditation) and exercise. I have found those things VERY beneficial in reducing migraine attack frequency.
Have you considered taking supplements yet for migraine prevention? Many healthcare professionals suggest this option. With so many alternatives available, make sure you choose the ones that are proven to help fight migraine and headache.
The American Academy of Neurology recently published guidelines on drugs and natural products that were useful in migraine prevention. Here are the top three supplements with the best evidence:
1. Butterbur (Petadolex) - Petasites hybridus - 75 mgs twice per day.
2. Vitamin B2 – Riboflavin - 200 mgs twice per day.
3. Magnesium - to bowel tolerance.
It’s not just vitamins and minerals, but also amino acids, and herbs. It’s a huge area to cover.
I am not a nutritionist or physician, but I will be discussing the recommended dosage here. However, this is not a "one size fits all." Everyone is so different; body size, gender and weight can influence dosage requirements. Your health history is important.
For this 8-week period we are just focusing on what is known to help prevent migraine. Lots of studies done, lots of evidence.
By the end of this book, you will have a clear strategy and you’ll know:
Plus, you’ll have a guided journal to start to plan and track your own 8-week experiment.
You may also find the best food for migraine relief to avoid!
As I mentioned above, finding the best food for migraine relief can be elusive. But with this journal you have a plan of attack. Nothing wrong with pushing back on those attacks and striving to create more comfort and ease in your life.
Lifestyle choices are SO important. You’ll start to explore some simple breathing (relaxation) techniques each week and you'll focus on the one thing that week to see if it makes a noticeable difference in your pain threshold, energy, stamina, and overall wellbeing. This is no quick fix. It can take some time to find what works best. So give yourself the space to make some changes.
I give extra hints and guide you through each week, what to add and what to test.
That's it! Simple and easy to use and you can print out the pages to use again each time you want to. The journal section provides the lead summary sheets for each week, so you can use a notebook for the rest of the week if you want to write daily. Which is what I recommend. (I wanted to save some trees here!!!)
There aren’t any fancy methods or difficult procedures. Just follow the steps, one week at a time. As you can see above the flow of week 1. The plan, the journal, and the alternative testing template example that I use. You could just start testing magnesium right now (for free!).
So step-by-step, each week you too will be moving towards feeling MUCH healthier and hopefully reduce some of those nasty triggers and symptoms at the same time.
Warning: I treat a supplement just like medication. Afterall, it does alter your body's chemistry. Your primary health professional(s) should also be consulted before any major changes in diet (including supplements) or exercise.
