Oh, FUN.

On this, the last morning of 2008, I have made a brilliant discovery that will affect the rest of my life forever:

Wheat is one of my migraine triggers.

If you'd like to know more about migraines (and some of the foods that are major triggers), you can read about them online (like here). Dr. Theda also highly recommends this book: Heal Your Headache. Reading that book saved me a trip to the dentist to have my bite corrected during one of my worst episodes.

I'm hoping that one day, I'll actually be excited about this. (Probably sometime when I don't have a headache.) I've suffered with terrible headaches most of my life, so it's old hat (pun intended) at this point. I can't actually imagine my life improving. But a New Year is as good a time as any to start trying.

May 2009 bring a better life to us all!

headaches
Another way to avoid the FDA approved witchdoctors and their often destructive allopathic approach is to make an effort to identify exactly WHERE the headache originates within your skull. This may involve a bit of suffering, and a bit of objectivity that requires an abnormal amount of effort under the circumstances. Once you have identified the location(s) subjectively, use a chart to identify the names of these places. From there, go on-line (or use the appropriate reference books should you have access to them) to discover what herbs/homeopathic remedy/supplements feed and strengthen these places. If your headaches are reoccurring, and cannot be traced to specific reactions to either physical or psychological stimuli, you may need to "feed" these places, which include glands, parts of the brain, eyes, ears, etc... If this doesn't work, try a real doctor.
