You know what,
Wheat? You give me a headache!
Kathy posted this story of successful
relief from decades of migraine headaches.
And, oh yes, she also lost 10 pounds
in 3 weeks: no extreme exercise or calorie counting required!
Dr Davis, here is my story so far. Today,
Sept. 9th, is the start of my fourth week on the wheat-free,
grain-free way of life. I didn’t say “diet” because,
when I tell you my results, you’ll understand why I’m not
going back to eating foods that have been incapacitating me since the 1980′s.
I am almost 59 yrs old, 5’ 2½″,
and three weeks ago I weighed 160lbs. Ugh! I felt so tired and achy
all the time and a typical day for me after work was to hit the couch
and on weekends I had enough energy to just get a few things done and
again spend most of the weekend laying around, wondering why I’m
always so tired.
I have had migraine headaches since the 1980′s.
Notice the date from above. I don’t mean just a little ol’
headache once in a while, but a head-pounding, hugging the toilet,
F.M.L.A. from work, sicker-than-a-dog migraine. And almost always after
taking the prescribed meds (Imitrex or Zomig or Maxalt), I felt so
terrible I could barely function. And this was after the migraine was
gone! At times I would take a Vicodin for the after-effects the medicine
was causing, but never for the migraine itself because that just
made them worse.
The first week I was detoxing from the wheat
and other grains, I had a migraine every day for five days straight.
Then on day six I woke up with a “headache” that OTC
[over-the-counter] meds got rid of. That was a first for me!
Now three weeks into this I have had three migraines, but I took the
same amount of meds and something strange has been happening: The
migraine goes away rather quickly and there are no after-effects at
all. It’s like I never had one in the first place. I am
completely stunned and can’t believe that getting rid of the
junk I’ve been consuming has made this kind of difference.
If I had only known this 25 years ago!
And by the way, I’ve lost 10 pounds in these last three
weeks and I feel great! I hope that other people suffering with
migraines will give this a try. Thank you so much!
