I have a friend who is an O and having migraines. She says they are usually preceded by a feeling of deep fatigue. Does anybody have any recommendations I can give her along with the diet? Much appreciated.

I have had migraines in the past, but never knew any relief for them.  Strong drugs help the pain, but not if you can't keep them down.  I do think that following BTD can help.  I often have regular headaches, and I think they have been a little better lately (I'm new to this).  I hope you get some good advice for your friend.  Migraine is so miserable to suffer through.  :(

Dairy was the biggest migraine inducer for me. Don't eat it.

I used to have migraines every now and then and they were terrible!
Since I stopped eating wheat, dairy, corn and sugar, my migraines have gone away!  :)

I second the book suggestion. Water is very important. Within one week of starting BTD ( 100% compliance ) and be very conscious of getting my proper water intake, all daily migraines and sinus headaches went away. I was amazed!!! I hope your friend finds some relief.  :)

@ balletomane ...... I have to agree on your statement : Since I stopped eating wheat, dairy, corn and sugar, my migraines have gone away!  

@ slyparrot ........ I found this to be my # 1 cause also: Dairy was the biggest migraine inducer for me.

ok so icecream could be the issue for my headaches.. interestingly, they would have little to do with direct correleation - but hours later?? interesting thought..

worth a thought for sure..

fatigue always comes from carbs and wrong foods.. is she likely to go on BTD?  

actually I have someone with such severe pain that he ends up in hospital.. I wonder if I could entice him to BTD? if enough is written here? -- so therefore I thank all who add info .. thanks..

and another person who actually underwent nerve surgery .. I wonder if she would go on BTD.. I will see how far this thread will take me in telling them what I had previously told them verbally...

thanks for all input..

ice cream always gives me a headache. no matter how "clean". guess it's the dairy/sugar combo. it's not a food I eat often. when I do eat it, it's just a bite, maybe 2.

I suffered for years with migrains before BTD.  What a difference that made.  And the headaches still come back when I get off my program.  One thing that takes the edge off for me while waiting for the pain meds to kick in, is a HOT water bottle at my feet.  And even when I couldn't keep the meds down it seemed to take the edge off enough to finally have something stay down.  It's wrapped in a cloth & I have heavy socks on.  I guess it draws the blood away from the head?  Anyway, it helps take the worst edge off for me.  But certainly cleaning up the diet has been the best solution.

Definitely! - and sometimes for much longer than it takes for the food to pass through the digestive system because once the toxins are in the bloodstream, they need to be filtered back out before all of the symptoms are relieved.  If the filters are overloaded, they won't be prompt about getting the junk out of the blood.

I had pain so bad and for so long that I no longer realized that it hurt...  It was only when I had removed corn for three weeks that an "openness" developed in my head.  Once exposed to corn again, the headache returned with a vengeance and proved to me just how bad it had been - and how long it took to filter it out of the system again...

I don't know about migraines being a form of neuropathy, but they can be caused or intensified by healing nerves (or the related toxin removal)...

I think stress is a major factor as well.  I recommend exercise as a cure. :B

I have heard that a ginger water foot bath will kick a migraine ( no pun intended  ;) )

I'm pretty sure it's related.

Any foods with lots of free glutamate, tyramine, or sulfites could be a trigger.  FYI, wheat and milk have a lot of glutamate, and aged cheese has a lot of tyramine, the older the more.  That in addition to the other inflammatory agents in them!
