Migraine Hackers

Below are a few of the testimonials I’ve received from those who have tried my protocol:

I wanted to thank you again for the migraine work you have done and the protocol!! It’s really brilliant and more importantly, has reduced my migraines immensely. In prior postpartum periods, the residual inflammation has left me so miserable with headaches, sometimes daily. 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!” ~ Maryn Green, Indie Birth, Arizona

“I feel like a new person. I have more energy and I no longer feel like migraines run my life. The other day as an experiment I drank a beer (alcohol is a guaranteed migraine trigger for me), and I did not get a migraine. Of course, I have no intentions of pushing that but it was a great confirmation that true healing is occurring.” ~ T. Ranes, Lakewood, Colorado USA

“Day 31- Today had been the best day ever… Do I dare say I feel normal? What does normal actually feel like, I’m sure I’ve forgotten, lol! After six years of autoimmune disease and the migraines this is quite frankly amazing. Good to be alive. So this is what it feels like after one month on the protocol, worth all the effort!!!” ~ K. Griffin, Prince Edward Island, Canada

“Marya I had such a good coaching by you. I haven’t felt hopefull in so long regarding migraines, and was in the mindset where I thought I knew it all. You are so plugged in when it comes to the energy body and the importance of plants. I can recommend everyone with a (dis)ease to get a coaching with you. Im starting the “program” today. Thank you.” ~ G. Koldtoft, Denmark

“I just wanted to share my experience: I don’t get headaches often, but every once in awhile a powerful one creeps in. Last Friday night a big one came on, the kind that wakes you in your sleep. When I woke up Saturday morning it was still hanging on strong, so I thought of Marya’s work. I drink fresh pressed juice nearly every morning, so I grabbed a potato and added it to my juice. Within an hour of drinking my juice the headache was gone. Amazing! Thanks Marya.” ~ M. Sperry, Portland, OR USA

“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! And I have my husband and dad drinking juice every day, too, not because of headaches.” ~ A. Tyus, Nebraska, USA

“Day 62. Still no migraines, I can hardly believe it. Things that used to give me migraines before, like for example having visitors for hours and getting exhausted from that, doesn’t anymore. I am so grateful, I can’t even find words to describe it. Even the severe pain from my fibro and rheumatism, gives me migraine anymore.” ~ S. Skov, Denmark

“The prebiotic powders have allowed me to have normal bowel movements. In an earlier email to you I had written that I haven’t been regular in ‘years’ but when I really thought about it, I don’t think I have ever had normal bowel movements (regular =once a day) in my life (I was constipated as a baby even, so I am told) so this is really a huge thing for me. I take about 3 Tablespoons of the prebiotic and about 2 T of the potato starch each day. Love this! Thank you! Your emails and knowledge have given me much to look forward to! There’s a light at the end of this migraine/headache/GERD tunnel! No doctor, chiropractor, dietician, symptometrist, neurologist, has even come close to providing that.” ~ M.G., Phoenix, Arizona

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

When was the Simplywell Protocol developed?

The SimplyWell Protocol was discovered in January 2016 by Marya Gendron and has been refined since that time.  It is an entirely plant-based approach to migraine.

The SimplyWell Protocol relies initially on elimination of tyramine and histamine rich foods.  How long does a person have to eliminate these foods from the diet with this protocol?

Luckily, the elimination phase of these foods is only temporary.  A gradual reintroduction of histamine and tyramine rich foods is possible, and usually within 3-5 months people can eat all fermented and histamine rich foods again without migraine being triggered.  Everyone is different but generally, the histamine “bucket” just doesn’t get as full once the gut flora imbalances (ie, excessive histamine-producing gut flora) are addressed.

Which kinds of migraines is this protocol effective at addressing?

Currently the protocol has been successful at relieving chronic migraines, hemiplagic migraines, so-called “hormonal migraine” or “menstrual migraine” and migraine with aura – as well as chronic headaches and brainfog. We’re excited to have people with other types of migraines try the protocol out to see if it helps them.

How long does it take to see improvement on the SimplyWell Protocol?

This varies from person to person depending on how many meds they are taking and how they eat when they start the Protocol.  People who are eating a whole foods diet and are on very few (3-5 doses of meds per month) to no meds respond quickly, with improvement in symptoms usually seen within 1-2 weeks, and stabilization starting around 3-4 weeks into the Protocol.

Migraineurs who have a very long history of chronic migraines along with heavy use of medications need a lot more time to heal, and can expect to start to see results in 4-6 months, especially if they are doing the Protocol in combination with Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis.

Can the protocol address symptoms other than migraine?

Yes, the protocol is effective at addressing many different Histamine Intolerance symptoms and symptoms of inflammation and indigestion in general.  Anyone who has compromised kidney function, low energy, insulin sensitivity, leaky gut, electrolyte imbalances or imbalanced gut flora caused by antibiotics and other meds may benefit from the protocol.

Is the SimplyWell Protocol contraindicated in any conditions?

Yes, the protocol could possibly temporarily exacerbate symptoms of SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth).

The radish portion of the Protocol is contraindicated for those with duodenal ulcers, but consumption of radishes is an optional step of the Protocol.  Some people who have compromised sulfation pathways cannot tolerate the taste of radish or get itchy when consuming them.  This is useful information especially for those doing private coaching as it allows us to then help support sulfation pathways so that sulfur sensitivities are healed.

I have special dietary considerations and can’t consume carbs/nightshades/fruit, etc.  Are there ways to adapt the Protocol for individual needs?

Yes.  This topic is covered in the e-book.  However, the Protocol involves consumption of prebiotics, therefore people who are intolerant to prebiotics will not be able to follow the Protocol.

Can the Protocol be used for kids?

Currently the Protocol has not been used with kids.  It is recommended that one-on-one coaching is done with Marya to help alleviate migraine in kids so that the Protocol can be personalized and adapted to the child’s size and special needs.
