A few weeks ago, I had a man from France contact me asking me to put up more info on my website relevant to men suffering from migraine. So I thought I’d share this story with you from Francesco Fiorenza, from Sidney. He’s an inspiring example to all (not just men) of how rapid healing from migraine can happen when migraine overuse headache is elminated from the equation by going through withdrawal from migraine meds. Not an easy feat! Francesco has greatly improved on the protocol and continues to work on healing the deeper copper/zinc mineral imbalances to eliminate migraines for good.
“I’m a 42 yo male and I’ve been suffering migraines since I was 14. Over the years they got progressively worse in frequency and intensity. At my worst about a year ago I was getting 3-4 migraines a week on a 10/10 on the pain scale. I was in a constant headache for about 20 years. I kept taking more and more medication to cope not knowing that the medication was also making me sicker. By chance I stumbled across a video of Maryas on YouTube about histamine overload and it’s affect on migraineurs. So much of what she was saying about histamine rang true to me about how my migraines were being triggered by seemingly random things and events like foods, vitamin supplements, lack of sleep and even air pressure. I was hooked. I bought the eBook and followed Marya’s instructions on juices and foods to reduce histamine and nourish the gut microbiome, increase salts and minerals to keep the body in homeostasis in the form of sloe (soley) and to heal the liver by eliminating medication and eating foods like liver pate and vitamin C and B rich foods.
When I started the protocol I was so sick that I felt I had only two choices, either give up completely and die from medication overuse or try my absolute hardest and fight like I have never fought before to overcome this illness. From that moment on I made a promise to myself to never touch a migraine pill or pain killer again and put my all into healing my body. It wasn’t easy to start with. I had to endure the full pain of 10/10, 48hr migraines, and constant vomiting. But gradually month by month this got better and better. Each migraine the pain would be slightly less and the frequency would start to spread out. Slowly the intensity would reduce. Between every migraine there was a slight improvement and this was encouragement enough for me to keep going. After 3 months I was completely headache free! My whole life I justified having headaches to myself as something normal, that everyone had headaches it was just that as a migraine sufferer I got them more often. This was so not true! I was in a constant headache because of all the medication I was taking and no Doctor every told me about the side affects of medication overuse.
It is now 9 months later and I’m still headache and medication free. I now get a migraine roughly every 3 weeks on a 1/10 on the pain scale with no more vomiting. I’m so grateful to Marya and her research. I honestly don’t know where I’d be today without her help. I’m forever grateful for the gift she has given me of helping heal myself through nutrition and mineral balancing. Thank you so much Marya :-)”
