In the midst of my Vestibular Migraine onset, behind the scenes, you were all of so much help and comfort to me. Which is why I wanted to share this in the hope that it helps someone…
I have had chronic migraines for 20 years with hormonal migraines lasting up to 3 days. On average 4-6 migraines a month.
In 2016 they developed into vestibular migraines ( I have a feeling Sumatriptan contributed to this over the years of taking multiple doses. I always felt like I was on a boat soon after taking them) I had to leave my job permanently and symptoms continued for a few years. I now have the vestibular condition under control with Amitriptyline. However my hormonal/stress/weather/food etc… migraines continued.
Like all of us, I have tried anything and everything. Nothing really helped… until recently… I came across a talk by Dr Neal Barnard on utube “How to heal your hormones” which led me to eating a whole food, plant based diet. I was brought up eating a healthy diet, or so I thought. Eliminating all animal products has been a game changer! For the last 5 months my migraines have been decreasing and… miracle of miracles… I have not had a 3 day migraine for the past 2 months!!
I started the diet in March of this year and felt the effects very quickly, within 2 weeks my mood/anxiety and digestion improved, energy increased, joint pain dissolved and skin felt softer. So the benefits are there for everyone, not just hormonal women.
This last weekend I spent 4 hours in the garden.
I am hoping this information transforms your life too.
