Hi, I wanted to join this blog just to let people know my story and to give hope. I have had headaches off an on my whole life. Then migraines the last 7 years with chronic daily headaches and migraines. I tried topamax three times in the 7 years but after 4 months couldn't take the tired drug feeling. Then Elavil or Amitriptyline. And Botox shots, sinus surgery , migraine diets and many other ways to get rid of them. My Daughter who is 27 years old also had them. She was watching Dr. Oz who had a guess speaker on there named Dr. Fuhrman He said all his patients recover from migraines in three months by following his nutritional advice. I knew this was not going to work. But my daughter bought his book (Eat To Live) followed it and recovered. So I tried it and now I am 9 months migraine free. no meds!!!! What also compelled me to try his way was he wasn't selling any magic herb or snake oil or promoting any one thing. He simply tells you how to get rid of them buy going to the grocery store yourself and buying the right food and getting rid of toxins.I used to get very insulted when people told me I had the power to cure myself with food or just drink more water suggestions. So I know oversimplifying migraines can be angering. I thought there is no way Im changing my diet just to try one more thing that has little chance curing me, since migraines stole my life all I have left to enjoy is food and I don't want to deprive myself further. Dr. Fuhrmans program is more than diet as you will see in his book. But My daughter who lived with me keeps cooking this yummy food and she felt great. So with a panic attic in the grocery store trying to buy new foods and mourning the oreo's. I kept my promise to her and weened off the Elavil. and started Dr. Fuhrmans program And now I write you completely cured and not selling anything but hope. If you are interested, Read his book for the info.( I found his book at our library) He has a web sight at Dr.Fuhrman.com. PS we also lost weight on his plan. Good luck don't give up and settle for medications like I did!! Write me anytime.

http://www.drfuhrman.com/disease/Headaches.aspx The web sight has a lot of info and can be confusing.Here is a newsletter he wrote. I read the book Eat to live and that has the migraine cure section in it. I followed that and got better.

I tried the Heal Your Headache (book) method (which is food based, eliminating trigger foods) and that did not help me, but I will look into this also. Nutrition means so much to our health and I firmly believe that all the garbage and chemicals we put into our bodies now are causing so many health problems for the world's population.

I am heading to the library today.

Hi Karen,Thanks for writing back.I hope the book is there. He also wrote super immunity. I tried the elimination migraine diet for 4 months but it didn't help either. The thing that gets to me is. I used to only have pms headaches. Then 7 years ago I had a nerve injury while getting a root canal. So I was sent to a neurologist for that nerve in my mouth not migraines.The neurologist said not to worry about the nerve it will heal on its own . Then asked me if I ever get headaches I said yes once a month sometimes more. He said he thought they were migraines and gave me migraine meeds. I asked if they were addicting he said no. They were like a miracle the way they took away the headache. But soon my headaches got more and more intense and frequent. I thought it was just pre menopause. Then I called him after 2 years and told him I get them every day now. So he told me about rebound headaches .So for the next 5 years I never went over 9 medications a month like he said to do. But still every day I had either a migraine or low grade headache. I firmly believe his drugs messed me up!!!! I thank God I found the Eat to Live program. Good luck and a prayer from me to you for the right treatment for your health.

yes!!! I changed my diet in 2005 to organic. Gluten free in 2009. Was on all the meds for migraines. Gosh they were so bad. I would get them driving kids to things and had to pull over for I couldn't see!!

THEY ALL WENT AWAY. Slowly. Was in hospital ER with one, once. Thought I had something ready to blow in brain. Nope. Migraine. Came out with 7 drugs! oy.

Something had to change. I was having all types of health issues. So I went organic. Stopped fluoride and chlorine in my water too. And personal products became clean of toxins. Coffee is shade grown and organic. Fair trade.

It does help. Took me a whole month before the migraines intensity lessened. Then, they gradually tapered off. I am sooooooooooooo happy about it. No medicine helped at all.

Just pure clean foods. Nothing fast food for me. Nothing out of a window. I make my own foods and have had to bring my own to parties and things. Family/friends understand. I once showed them the bills from the 10 mris/xrays and how much all the drugs cost.

NO MORE over the counter meds, either. NO more "pain relievers." I do tinctures. Homeopathy - even works on my pets?!! Supplements.

Mostly great food. Clean. Some as raw and fermented.

No more large corporation foods for me. I don't buy their advertising gimmicks any more. For it almost killed me.

We cannot digest synthetics at all. Tell them that by refusing to buy their crap. :) Health to all!!

Hi there,
i really feel terrible for all migraine/headache sufferers. here's what i found a small tip for curing your headache/migraine
HEADACHE/migraine: Rub Kalonji oil on the forehead and near ears, and also drink half tea spoon Kalonji oil twice a day.
You might not know what is kalonji. its called black seed oil in english. search ''kalonji'' on google images and you will get an idea of what kalonji seeds look like. they are black coloured. in english kalonji seeds are known as nigealla seeds.
ok and i've also created a free ebook on migraines and headache. it includes causes, prevention and treatment for migraines. Its free for use by all migraine sufferers in the world!
VISIT--> http://www.migrainerelief.z40.us
hoping to hear from you soon with positive feedback!

I use a dechlorinating shower head - warm water and limit time in there because of the chemicals.

For drinking water, I found a counter top filter by seychelles, then into a brita, then into a barrier. I once considered a berkey, but found the seychelle
(the regular filter removes up to 99.99% of chlorine, chemicals (VOCs), heavy metals and Radon 222. Removes up to 90% of fluoride. Since it is more open in porosity, it does not remove giardia, cryptosporidium or E-Coli. It is designed to be used as a drinking water filter for use with chlorinated municipal water and as a bottled water replacement..) already had the brita and those are good for some types of bacteria and spores (The Brita® Pitcher Filter Systems and the Brita® Faucet Filter are both excellent water filtration products offering different filtering techniques. The best product is the one that most meets your individual needs. Both products reduce the contaminants that most commonly concern consumers — lead and chlorine (taste and odor) — and both products deliver great-tasting Brita® water. The Brita® Pitcher Systems also reduce copper and mercury — which the Brita® Faucet Filter can't do. But unlike the pitcher, the Faucet Filter removes the microbes, Cryptosporidium and Giardia, and reduces the chemicals Atrazine, Lindane, Benzene, Trichloroethylene and Asbestos.)

And the Barrier: BpA-Free

• Nested cartridge screws in to prevent falling out while pouring.
• Unique Silver Impregnated Carbon Technology reduces bacteria growth within filter cartridge.
• Nano Plus® absorbing surface increases effectiveness of contaminant filtration.
• Removes chlorine, cadmium, mercury, petroleum products, lead, iron and pesticides.


I did send a sample of the finished water to an independent testing lab and the results were great. I am happy with this little trio. May be overkill, but I just don't like taking chances with my health.

If I had the finances I would drink volvic for it's aluminum detoxing ability *from what I have read.

Hi Millerc, thanks for posting your experience. I've read Dr. Fuhrman's fasting book as well as Eat to Live, and looked at his website. I never had any improvement with his migraine diet in the fasting book. I haven't done his raw cruciferous juicing. Did you do this, or did you do anything additional beyond just eating a lot of fruits/vegs and avoiding processed foods?

I would love to make this work for me, and am gearing up to try again, based on recently finding your post. Went to the grocery earlier and stocked up on all sorts of greens. I think I'll try the juicing, too, this time, but any further details of exactly what you are eating (as well as not eating!) might help me, if you don't mind sharing this info.

Thanks again,
Reama

Hi,
I've been looking for a site that discusses Dr. Fuhrman's diet for migraine. For the past three years, I have been suffering GREATLY--all day, every day--from "regular" migraines and hemiplegic migraines (thought I had a stroke at first). I have been extremely disabled. This started when I entered perimenopause and now I'm almost post-menopause. My question to all is if the Furhman diet helps even during menopause when part of the problem may be hormonal. Does it "straighten out" and normalize the hormones, as well as the rest of the body? I have tried HRT and had an increase in migraines. I discovered that I was histamine intolerant about 8 months ago and have been on a low-histamine diet which is quite natural, and while it helps the histamine situation, the migraines continue. Also, my doctor thinks I may have leaky gut. In addition, before this all happened, I believe I was in adrenal fatigue, which may have added to my extreme situation. I would love to know if you all think the Dr. Fuhrman diet can help someone like me??? I just received his "Eat to Live" book and would love to try it; however, I am already gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, migraine-free and hardly have anything to eat. One thing I noticed that I do react to is meat, so maybe his low-protein way of life will help. I'd so very much appreciate knowing what you all think. I cannot live like this anymore; I feel like I will die every single day. Thank you so much. Truly, Elisabeth

From Elisabeth,
Note: I have had headaches and migraines all my life (since age 15--58 now). Entering menopause is what really sent me in a tailspin. So, it's not that migraines started in menopause; it's just that it took off in an unbearable direction. Thanks again.
