Here is my current regimen
My improvement has continued. I am walking 30-45 mins per day and now in the last couple of weeks I have added in a bike ride every other day. I have my limitations though. I attempted to lift weights a couple of weeks ago over 3 days and everyday I ended up getting a migraine after. Low impact exercises like yoga, active stretching etc. I am ok with. I will be attempting to go back to work (very slowly) in a couple of weeks. This is a major step as I have been off work for well over a year now.
I am now down 60 lbs since August 31. I have made some added dietary changes and have cut out gluten and dairy since November. Both are based on intestinal issues, but getting a stomach ache could easily trigger a migraine for me as dehydration usually follows.
I have come across more and more people on the web who have been having success as I have with their migraines/headaches. For those in Washington/Colorado, I had mentioned about Mary's Medicinal CBD patches. They are kind of expensive but someone has been having success cutting them into four and just using one of those per day. They are using it as a preventative and were having success.
I'll leave you with a short article regarding a study done by Researchers at the the US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health ranking how deadly drugs are comparatively. The study "found alcohol was 114 times more dangerous than marijuana". Article Link.
