3 weeks on the Type O diet and I can't stand the headaches anymore!  I realize it must be withdrawal from something like perhaps wheat, gluten, corn, vinegar (not caffine).  When will the headaches stop!?  

Perhaps I shouldn't have gone cold turkey...should I start to eat those things again, then wean myself off of them slowly?  Help!

Today is my first day on the plan.  I am O also and had a headache...hoping they will not continue.  Surely can not be withdrawal for me after only one day!  Good luck JenC

I've been on it for about 6 weeks and haven't had a single headache (well I had one the day I tried carob...right after I ate it but then it went away). What are you guys eating?

What should I do?  Should I stop the diet?  Or, should I hang in there for another week (which is what I told myself last week)?  The headaches are soooo difficult.

YES let us know what you are eating.. there is a clue some place..

but let me also say that I neve rhad headaches when I ate other foods.. BUT I HAD so many other pains that I took many painkillers ... so 'I' never KNEW that I get daily headaches like the rest of my family..

I get mine for exactly 4-5 hours .. they start in the back of my neck and then comes over the top to the trygeminal area on the left.. I can touch the bloodvessel along the whole area, but no matter what I do to it, IT has a mind and time table of its own.. the way it comes , the same it goes.. suddenly I hear the click click click near the ear and then it goes..

having said that my sister also gets headaches all the kids do and my mom had them.. so we are prone to it.. food can cause it, but unless you are doing something really different.. and you said its not the coffee .. then either you always had it --or its in some new food.. 3 weeks for detox is not likely.. even coffee detox, which is viscious, only last 5 days..

I feel for you and feel the aggrevation about it, when do you get it.. do you take pills, did you ever take any pills? don't get discourraged, please- I know its the second time you ask.. but stay with us.. there is some answer some place..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

You must decide what you can handle.  I went cold turkey and had aches and pains and headache off and on for a few weeks when I switched from BTD to GTD.  It suddenly lifted and I felt like a new woman.  Looking back, it was SO worth it to me because of the higher level of healing that takes place the more closely we are eating for the benefit of our own specific body.

A lot of years of wrong eating takes some adjustment time.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Yes, lots of water.  And make sure you're eating lots of veggies and your fruit (fiber) to keep things moving through you.  It'll help remove the toxins.  I too have had lots of headaches at times, and unfortunately have given into pain meds when it was it's worst to get me through.  You have to do what's right for you.  But hang in there, it's worth it.

Hope you headache is gone today.  This is my 2nd day and have had one all afternoon.  I do drink lots of water and have been off caffeine for several years...so that is not it.  I am going to work through it.  I know it will take my body time to adjust to the changes.  Thanks for all the suggestions.

When I switched from BTD to SWAMI I had headaches every day for weeks, then suddenly they went and I haven't had them again. They were headaches like I have never had before too and it made me think I must be doing something wrong. Everyone said I must be dehydrated but I was drinking plenty of water, just like usual, so it wasn't that. I thought it was from detoxing, but who knows...at least it did come right.
