Should You or Should You Not?

Doctors are Starting to Understand the NEW Diet!

Another Doctor Came Around!

I will be posting all these unusual events that my migraineurs go through so you can see how hard it is to change one’s nutrition approach by turning against the USDA dietary guidelines and get the acceptance (let alone support and help) of your doctor.

This migraineur is in Canada, which makes it even harder, since they have a socialized medicine that I so far found–through other migraineurs in Canada–to be extremely rigid, allowing treatments only within a very narrow set of guidelines. So I was so shocked to read what happened–as was my migraineur to experience her visit to her doctor–so I decided to share with you (with her permission) what she wrote about her visit today. This is in the ketogenic group I manage that you can find here:

A Most Amazing Migraine Treatment

From One of the Many Amazing Migraine Sufferers

“Two and a half years ago I began treatment at the Michigan Head Pain and Neurological Institute, in Ann Arbor. I went on and off nearly 30+ prophylactics and abortive medications, gained 50lbs, had two inpatient hospital stays, both 14 days in length, met with the neurologists in A2 every 4 weeks, had numerous nerve blocks (steroids) both with and without sedation, 2 lumbar punctures, tried two rounds of botox, and i was still living with daily migraine pain, on average, of a 3 on a 5 scale. I started suffering from cardiac issues such as SVT’s that needed medication and venous insufficiency. The medications were taking a serious toll on my body.

The Science of Fasting that No One Knew About

200 years of data of >10k patients!

I was sent a message on Facebook by one of the migraineurs I work with about a film titled The Science of Fasting. She mentioned that it is available on Amazon Prime, which I have, so I started to watch it. I am on the ketogenic diet and fasting intermittently is part of my daily routine. I was curious what the science says behind fasting. Boy was I in for a surprise! Actually I was in for one of the biggest shocks of my life.

What is Fasting?

What if Migraine is a Metabolic Disease?

PRESS RELEASE

Today, on a science blog, my article was published about migraine as a metabolic disease. It is a new concept. Do you agree?

The logic is as follows: I work with thousands of migraineurs. I now require in-home 5-hour blood glucose testing for all migraineurs. Of those who so far have taken this 5-hour test, nearly all show insulin resistance to various degrees (hyperglycemia to reactive hypoglycemia). Continue reading

The connection of Trehalose & deadly pathogens

PRESS RELEASE

Dr. Chandler Marrs’ latest blog “A Molecular Boondoggle: Commercial Trehalose and Pathogenic Virulence explains the connection. Indeed, it explains much more than just how we have created “superbugs” that resist antibiotics, survive even boiling or subzero temperatures. The method by which all these changes happen are show-stopping and yet, as you will read in Dr. Marrs’ paper, we encourage such pathogenic survival. Continue reading
