I remember getting migraines and this is what helped me. 90% of all ill conditions start at the table. Hence 90% of all ill conditions begin in the bowel. How many bowel movements do you have in a day. 1, none, every other day, once a week. There should be 3-5 bowel movements/day. 1 after each meal, 1 when you get up in the morning, 1 before you go to bed at night. So, if you are getting 3/day you're doiong pretty good. You should be getting pretty good absorbtion of nutrients, 45% or better because the walls of your intestines especially the colon should be clear of the mucus and built up fecal matter that may have been there 5,10yrs or more.The mucus and fecal matter can harden like calcium deposits in old water pipes in the home cutting the flow of water down to a trickle. The plumber replaces the pipe and you're all set. In the colon you have to use a good colon cleaner to remove the debris from the sides of your intestines(a natural cleaner I hope) one that will tone the paristalic wave-like action of the intestines, this is how the waste is moved thru the intestines. Now once the walls are clean nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream by the intestinal villi, which are like the roots of a plant absorbing the nutrients from the ground. Now the stool itself should be unformed, it should float, come easily, with little or no smell and break up when you flush. Of course all this goes back to what you put on your table where digestion and good health begin. What did all this have to do with my migraines? I changed my eating regimen and cleaned out my bowel,toned it up and kept it that way and my migraines stopped. This may work for you.By the way,for all of you that periodically fast,you should have bowel movements during the fast because 1/2 of the stool is dead cells and bacteria.
I'm the new kid on the block and I have written hubs. I' m trying to gain a understanding on what and how to say what needs to be said about what is going on in our society with our medical care and food. Unemployment, crime etc. are important also, but it won't make a bit of difference it you are not in good health and good health is a definite possibility if you know what and how to do it.
Well Robert, my advice to you as a seasoned hubber is to take all your information and advice and turn it into hubs. A hub about healthy bowel movements and maintaining a healthy lower intestine would probably be a great addition. Before hand though, I would search the site to make sure you're not duplicating information. Welcome to Hubpages!
One other comment about Migraines though Rob, they are a neurological condition. Make sure you are differentiating between migraines (debilitating episodes that can include chills, tremors, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, sound and light sensitivity etc) and really bad headaches. They are very different.
You are right. You got me started again , hope you have some time. Headaches are often caused by a disturbance in some part of the body, such as the digestive disorders in the stomach, liver, or bowel, problems in the abdominal area, menstrual irregularities, impingment in the cervical, concussion, eye strain, nervous excitement, fatigue etc. The headache is a mechanism which signals there can be serious problems elsewhere. The common headache is due to faulty elimination and the waste matter causes problems until the toxic wastes reach the stomach nerves and affects them. Sometimes headaches are caused from panic, fear , or worrying about the unknown. Headaches of this type are the hardest to relieve, generally requiring something strong like a nervine tea with Lobelia to diminish the nervous excitement. Food allergies are another common cause of headaches. The worst culprit being sugar, which is a sort of withdrawal. You eat the sugar and then as the body is trying to eliminate the the toxic substance, your head pounds. Cheese commonly causes headaches, probably the worst of the dairy products for this, although allergies to any (dairy) of them may cause the pain. Meats and eggs are also common allergens. People sometime get headaches because they are dehydrated. Constipation headaches can stem from several sources. Very common is where the compressed fecal matter presses on the nerves that affect the head. We have have seen severe migraines corrected by taking a catnp enema. Kelp can prove effective taken with cell salts at every meal. Kelp not only acted on the liver, but also toxic colon, the gall bladder, kidneys, and meninges (3 membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord). The latter are usually involved when headaches are severe.
