Migraine Headaches

What Natural or Holistic Path I Would Take If Diagnosed With Migraine Headaches
by Thomas Martin

Here is what I would do if diagnosed with migraine headaches.  This is the order of the most likely to work to the least likely:
  • I will take magnesium oil (preferably from Ancient Minerals) daily.  I will spritz about 15 shots onto my skin, rubbing it in with my forearm.  I will likely do this just before bedtime. I will also be patient, knowing that it takes about 4 months of application before the magnesium becomes part of my cells and is then most effective
  • I will stop using all artificial chemical sweeteners such as aspartame, Splenda, and saccharine.  I will also stop eating anything containing monosodium glutamate (MSG) as well as glutamic acid (which is just another name for MSG).  To sweeten my foods, I will instead us local, raw, organic honey. 
  • I will rub frankincense oil on my temples during a migraine
  • I will stop using refined sugar and all high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). 
  • I will take vitamin B12 in the form of methylcobalamin sublingually. 
  • I will take vitamin B6 (folic acid) daily
  • I will eliminate all genetically modified foods from my diet including wheat, corn and especially soy and also eliminate all vegetable oils such as canola, corn, cottonseed and soybean.
  • I will take Cod Liver Oil daily,
  • I will take L-Tryptophan each night before bed
  • I will also consider not eating mushrooms
  • Each morning I will drink a mixture of Tom's Magic Elixer Tea, adding a pinch of Himalaya sea salt to the mixture
If none of this works after four months, I will research further into herbal solutions such as lavender. 

DISCLAIMER:  I am in no way recommending treatments or cures on this blog.  This blog is merely a compilation of what I have learned about a diet based, natural approach to health. I follow the steps I outline in my book Just Do This One Thing: A Guide To Chronic Good Health and know I will avoid almost every disease listed in this blog.  On the other hand, I needed a place to write steps for specific ailments as I came across them.  If you are looking for alternative therapies, I hope you can benefit from my research, especially if your doctor has told you "nothing more can be done for you."
