Quoted from Lolatry the gentle liver cleanse for explorers in the GTD book, repeat once a month at least......also keep hydrated right!
mine was liver related.....and these guidelines have greatly helped
Quoted from MayflowersI was told it's called a "migraine effect" I get them too. I had it last week...I got tunnel vision for a minute then it cleared up. I was also told by a MD that migraines are a vascular insufficiency caused by the chemicals that make the arteries dialate and retract are not secreted sufficiently. I bet the chemicals in oranges stopped my correct secretion. :) Once I stopped eating oranges the migraines stopped by 99.8%
I went most of my life drinking orange juice in the morning because I "thought" it was good for me. It gave me migraine headaches and acne. Oh, and the funny thing is I don't even like oranges or the flavor of orange. I found out that oranges are an avoid when I started the BTD. I wish I would have known that. I lived 50 mins away from Dr. James D'Adamo. 50 minutes. :'( We had no knowledge of ND"s due to my state not licensing them...grrrrr. >:(

Quoted from NewHampshireGirlI have had these ocular migraines periodically since the age of 35. It scared the bejeebers out of me at the time. I now know that when this happens there is something wrong in the gut. :-/
Quoted from paul clucas
I experienced pain-free stress headaches from my Tomatis therapy.
If your experience is like mine, you will merely be trading headaches. :-/Thanks for the warning. :-/
Quoted from TJWill one of you moderators correct the spelling on this thread so it's easier to find in the search?
Jeepers do you?? Must be something that is causing that??!! Wonder what it is? Have YOU ever looked into things like salicylates etc?Possum, I never thought about throwing up making me feel better. But if I start doing that......will it ever end? I feel nauseated after every single meal as it is anyway.
Quoted from D.L.
When I first feel a migraine headache coming on, I immediately rub a little essential peppermint oil on my forhead and more on the bottom part of the back of my neck. . . But since I use the peppermint oil as described above, I shut it down immediately. I don't have them very often anymore, but I carry that little bottle in my purse everywhere I go.
Strange as this morning I had it again for the first time in ages & am now wondering if exposure to fumes precedes them for me? Spent all day in town on Monday (including waiting for 3/4hr for relatives on wharf, while stinky trucks stopped & backed up nearby) filled car with petrol on Tuesday, washed clothes, including bed linen, (with enviro friendly detergent but with essential oils in it ??)) & was also exposed to neighbour's washing as I went out to line myself (stinky regular smelly stuff) ::) Then to top it off, used an old crock pot that has a part plastic outer & noticed it smells when heated...Slept really heavily last night, then when came back from city drop off this morning, I had an instant sun glare induced "headache" ::) Ok later when crockpot turned off... ;)Quoted from Possum...this past year I have 2-3 times had that aura thing happen in just the left eye... No pain but slightly blurry vision on the very outside of the eye, as if there was "something" in my left field of vision & it would only go away if I rested with both eyes shut for 10-20 mins :-/ ??) Haven't had it now for a while so wonder if it is the same thing?
I probably posted this before, but the less metal I have in my mouth, the fewer migraines I have. I got another metal bridge taken out and I haven't had one since. I still have one filling to be removed, and then I'm metal-free!
Quoted from 18090Has anyone found healing for ‘silent migraines’? I suspect I have been suffering from these for eight years. Dizzy; lightheadness, feeling like going to pass out, weakness in arms /hands and legs; constant 'cloudy head', pressure in eyes, unable to focus, tunnel vision, black and white "kaleidoscope" like figures in the corners of both eyes, have on occasions had numbness of entire left side of body, feeling of being pulled down and severe fatigue.
What I would love to know is of those who have been diagnosed with this...how did you go about it? Was your GP hip to it or did you have to battle to get to the correct doctor? In additon to feeling horrible daily, battling for someone to help me is becoming overwhelming. :'(
Also what is the treatment for healing?
Quoted TextI even had a Dr. tell me that I was faking having no energy...
Quoted from zenphoenixrya - as i mentioned in my post above yours, i went undiagnosed for around 20 years. In that time i saw about 20 different doctors and specialists (i lost count somewhere around 18). I've had every diagnosis under the sun... depression, bi-polar, chronic fatigue, SAD, MS, hypoglycemia, glaucoma, vertigo, fibromyalgia (although this one turned out to be true, just not as severe as diagnosed), whiplash, thyroid condition, high blood pressure (which is hilarious, i have very low bp!), anemia (pick one) etc...
Here is how i got my diagnosis...
Suspecting that i had migraines of some sort...
1. i first listed every symptom / ill feeling that i had.
2. talked to all the people i knew who had migraines to understand what their symptoms were. I paid attention to when my friends were getting migraines to see if there was a correlation to me (ie, one friend had a lot of problems with weather induced migraines... the days she was sick, so was i).
3. I tracked my episodes and what may have brought it one (ie the weather, stress, lack of sleep etc)
4. i called all of my family and quizzed them on whether or not they have ever had a migraine... i described the symptoms of auras, etc. Turns out that neither of my parents had a migraine condition, but paternal grandfather had rather severe migraines, as did a great aunt on my birth mother's side.
5. Tried to recount in writing my medical history / dr's visits and diagnosis
6. I took all of this in to the new doctor in my town and talked, showed him everything and asked him what this could possibly be. He took one look at everything i had written down and said... you have migraines, rather severe ones in fact.
I found out that in cases of "silent" migraine, they do use family history as a means of verification, so it is important to question everyone. My grandfather and great aunt's history was enough to show that there was family history.
The best treatment for me... at first, i willingly took the meds because i was so sick i had been unable to work for several months and i needed to get back on my feet so to speak. However, i actively started researching food and supplements, etc. I managed to figure out some of my triggers quite quickly, some took longer. But even then i was still getting more than 8 a month.
After i started following BTD they got somewhat better, but since i switched to SWAMI last august and did a liver cleanse (also august), i have had only 1.
l-arginine is really good for Bs... you need it! it helped me a lot. So did Vitamin D. Find out about your blood pressure... low bp can be a migraine problem, you may need to add sea salt to your diet. And visulization... Bs a re super good at visualizing and it works.
Quoted from CuriousI sometimes have a weird feeling around my eyes: It feels like I have a wave of diamonds coming from either the right hand side of my head or from the left hand side of my head. It moves in a flickering way into my eyes and even though I still see fairly clearly, I find it distressing. It usually last for 10-20 minutes and I have it about every 6-8 weeks. It only started about a year ago.
I have been trying to find out what it is and someone told me that it could be a migrane without the headache. She said the 'flickering diamonds' are like the aura preceeding a migrane and that I was lucky that I do not get the headaches. Does this make sense and does any of you know this?
makes sense since the eyes & the liver are connected ;)Quoted from pipnjohnI don't reckon it is migraine and believe the the alternative medical practitioner is/was right, it's leaky gut or bowels.
I get it about 5 hours after eating a meal. (unless I take the Elm powder every morning)
Your symptoms are exactly the same as mine, try Slippery Elm, works for me!
I have been using the Slippery Elm (successfully) to prevent this for about 10 years now!
Right on. It affects everything else, too, since your immune system identifies those proteins as "not self", and an inflammation reaction starts wherever they go.Quoted from pipnjohnAn alternative practitioner told me that it is caused by leaky gut and is caused by undigested protein getting into the blood and causing problems for the liver and kidneys etc.
