Wow, so long since I have updated this and yet so much life that has happened. What I found out about my migraines was that there were a few things going on: my birth control pills were jacking my hormone levels to a dysfunctional level, the stress in my life was taking over my ability to cope with life and finally I was not living out my hearts desire. As soon as I took a step towards what I really wanted to do with my life, my migraines went away. Just like that. They went away. I get them only now when my life is out of sync which is mainly around my period but even then it is only ever so often. I am now able to rest for a few hours and be fine with a few Tylenol. No joke. Certainly this is not the cure for everyone, but this truly worked for me. I thought I was going to be coping with these the rest of my life, so it is with great giddiness that I tell you I am doing really okay.
Heal Your Headache: The 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Pain by David Buchholz and Stephen G. Reich - I read this book and returned it right away. I did not find it helpful at all. There was nothing in this book that you could not find in any article. That being said - some people swear by this book.
