The mother of all pain…… No one wants to hear someone else’s migraine story when they are in the midst of suffering. So I offer you what I have done, and will continue to do for the rest of my time on this beautiful earth, to eliminate 80% of the nasty migraines I suffered from for so long.
Acupuncture – first and foremost the greatest asset to eliminating migraine. Be patient it takes awhile. It took 4 years before I could say I was 80% better. I went to Michael Kerrigan in Incline Village, NV.
Energy work – I go to a healer in the Carson Valley on a weekly basis to keep my meridian energies balanced.
Whole Foods Clean Diet – cannot stress enough the importance of eating foods that are pain free. I found my sensitivities from an elimination diet under the guidance of Dr. Neal Barnard of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. No processed anything, lots of vegetables, and minimal meat which is always local, grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free.
Herbal Formulas – no more western medicine – ever. Switching from western medicine to herbal formulas was the best way to go for me. After a lifetime of pills, shots, nasal sprays, etc. this was nothing short of a miracle for me. I also use an herbal formula for acute migraine attack if needed.
Natural Remedies – Please send me an email for information on natural remedies for healthy living!
Yoga – a must. Especially if asthma is a factor of the migraine. Yoga is a mind/body experience that cannot be matched with any other exercise. My teacher is Scott Bishop who teaches in the Carson Valley area.
Meditation – everyday. Multiple times a day if you can. The more the better. And the more you meditate the more you will gain spiritually, mentally, and physically. I was fortunate enough to learn to mediate at a higher level through Dr. Abey. He visits Lake Tahoe each year and I am blessed to have found him. Please look him up – Dr. Jayanath Abeywickrama.
Exercise – everyday. I enjoy the multitude of sports offered by living in the Lake Tahoe area such as mountain biking, horseback riding, kayaking, paddle boards, water skiing, swimming, hiking, snow skiing, dirt biking, river rafting, just to name of few….. I truly believe my drive to continue with my sports is what drove me to conquer the migraine. So many lost days when you cannot function, and the fear of destroying my organs with western medicine was the driving force.
Chemical free home. H2O products are amazing. I was able to achieve a chemical free home in about 2 years time. I started in the laundry room, moved to the kitchen, then the garage. It’s dumbfounding to me that when you start reading labels, the realization of exactly what the US does not have to disclose is disheartening, to say the least. H2O products come from France where the disclosure laws are strict.
