Migraines / Headaches

I have extremely severe migraines, been to my house dr as well as a homeopath. Both advised that it is stress related, I don't know if I am stressed, well then again it could be subconcious. If this is the case, how, if possible, can I determine what could actually be stressing me. I do also suffer alot from sinusitus. Been on various medication as prescribed by my drs for sinusitus, but I feel as though nothing really helps. Not sure if same has anything to do with my migraines. I desperately need another opinion.

Hi Dee

If you yourself don't even know what is stressing you I somehow doubt if this is the case. We pretty much know when the pressure is on and when we are unhappy and why.

There could very well be a link between the sinus, all the medication and the migraines. What we eat, drink and what we take has a direct influence on the liver and with what you say I think the liver is the reason for the migraines. You need to change your diet to being 95% natural with lots of fresh vegetables and salads, some fresh fruit, lots of whole grains, raw seeds and nuts, cottage cheese, lamb, fish and free range chicken. These foods build healthy beautiful cells in the body. You need to drink a minimum of 2.5l of filtereed water daily, exercise, rest well and sleep well. All these elements are important to good health and the most important of all is to be happy. This recipe works and works for all people.

Because of what you have been eating and the medicines you took, the digestive area is battling causing your body to use the sinus area to try and eliminate toxicity through. The moment you change your diet and correct the digestive area, the problem will clear.

The products to help you achieve this are:

Migraine Formula from A Vogel
Bioflora Capsules
Bio-Strath Elixir
Echinaforce from A Vogel

Take the products as recommended and after 6 weeks please get the Heel Detox Kit and use it to clear your body of any residue.

These products are available from pharmacies and health stores.

Take care, your health is precious.

Healthy Nutrition

Health begins with good nutrition, but how are we to decide what is good and what is not in the face of so much consumer health advice? The first thing to remember is that each of us is unique, with unique nutritional needs. A lifestyle and diet that benefits one person may not necessarily benefit another; there is no such thing as a single correct diet. But is there a universal guideline we can adhere to? Perhaps one: wholefoods – in as close to their natural state as possible. Having undergone minimal, if any, processing, wholefoods are without exception, more nutritious than refined foods. We are not able to improve the quality of food by exposing it to a process. We don’t have any processes that can add life to anything; we can only take life out of things. The fewer steps the original food type has gone through, the more nutrition is left in it. After all, we evolved in harmony with our environment, where the process of eating and digesting became compatible with available food, which consisted of specific balanced combinations of nutrients. The process of refining and processing food changes the balance of nutrients, and thereby compromises its nutritional value.

The following recommended diet is intended only as a guideline. Above all, learn to listen to your body’s response to the different foods you eat, and develop your own healthy nutritional plan!
