So, I have chronic daily migraines. I was diagnosed with them two years ago and pretty much have a headache every day. After seeing a host of specialists and having every test done known to man relating to the head, my neorologist determined I have daily headaches. (gee, thanks) I take both prevetatives and aborative meds daily to manage them.
Well, a new doctor was recommended to me – Asa Andrew. He is a holistic “health coach” and he says that in eight weeks I will no longer have headaches… thanks to his eight weeks to a healthy you program. Part of me thinks the whole thing is too holistic and out there for me and part of me really wants to believe this will work. Vanderbilt sends cancer patients to him… so he has had a lot of tough cases and a lot of success stories.
Asa’s program involves a major food detox where he takes away a ton of food to “reset” your body. So prety much everything that I eat I can’t have – a partial list includess: all dairy products (the only type of milk I can drink is goats milk – YUCK), all grains (including pastas, cereal, bread, desserts), all sugar, all fruit except berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries – oh and lemons, limes and grapefruit), all lunch meats, all pork, all liquids except water and certain kinds of tea (I hate tea). Needless to say I pretty much can’t eat anything I normally eat. It stinks. I am on day four today… I’m already sick of salads and protein shakes…
All this is written in hopes that you will pray that this works. Because if it does, I will be so grateful to not have headaches any more. And who knows, maybe my eating habits will become a little better too.
