My journey to find the root cause of migraine without drugs was long, painful - and ultimately transformative.
I came to the path of both bodywork and health coaching through my own experiential process of healing myself.
By far the greatest assault to my health and wellbeing came in the form of an emergency c-section operation at age 34. This event catapulted me into a 3 year experimental investigation into how to heal migraine without medications. It resulted in resolution of the primary symptoms I was trying to resolve, and the accidental resolution of other minor health symptoms I had long since accepted I had to live with.
For me, chronic migraine coincided with my initiation into motherhood. The demands of motherhood without question made healing harder for me (due to sleep deprivation, the stress of constantly moving, and lack of community support, etc). But having migraine while being a mother also motivated me to heal myself so I could be more present with my family.
Hidden blessings on the healing journey
I’m now grateful for all the health challenges I’ve had in my life, and see them as some of the most powerful leverage points that have helped me to become more embodied, more educated, and more resourced in taking responsibility for my own health.
I’m immensely grateful to my husband, Nick, who has been by my side through this harrowing – but ultimately transformative and empowering – experience.
I went to the East-West College of the Healing Arts for massage therapy, followed by 2.5 years of biodynamic craniosacral therapy training with Micheal Shea through the International School of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. I studied hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) through the Malter Institute.
The real education has been waking up to common sense, intuition, connection to the earth, attunement to my bodywisdom, and appreciation for Mother Nature’s healing minerals and plants. Life is a blessing!
I was about to have my periods when you emailed me so I thought I would wait to see what was going to happen. I’m so happy to say that I didn’t have a migraine during my last periods!! I just can’t believe it. I was going through some stress plus I had a couple of bad night sleep but I didn’t have a migraine. I’m so happy. I can’t thank you enough for all your help.N. Lemay
I wanted to thank you again for the migraine work you have done and the protocol!! This information is cutting edge, super accessible, and pretty easy to try. I highly recommend it and have tried nearly every alternative therapy to help with migraines over the years. This has helped the most. I feel so grateful because I am actually able to do stuff, and overall love that the actual issue is being addressed!
My headaches have disappeared almost entirely and almost immediately after starting to eat the recommended foods. . . It feels like a small miracle. I no longer dread waking up in the morning because I wake up with no headache. You understand what a taxing effect that can have on your emotions and ability to be present. My 18 month old daughter juices with me and loves it!A. Tyus
