You may have suffered from migraines or you may have had them. From a young age, I have experienced what it is like. I was allergic to chocolate and would get fevers from the sun as a child. I was also sensitive to chlorine in pools. I would often get terrible headaches after summer vacations to Aunt and Uncle’s pool party. This was who I became as a child. This was how I was wired. There was nothing I could do.
I was like many migraine sufferers. I struggled to keep up with my peers at parties, on teams, and eventually, in college, with work. It was difficult to keep up with others at times. However, I knew deep down that there was a special calling within me where I could make life easier and more healthy. It took me a while, but finally, at 37, I decided to take the plunge and learn how to do this.
I decided to learn holistically and became certified in various areas, including Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, and Health coaching. Although I learned many things, the most important thing was how to apply them to myself and others. At 43, I am making every day count and have made a significant impact on my life.
My migraines have decreased, my medication has been reduced and I feel healthier. It was a process of understanding myself better and watching for migraines.
I also learned new tools and foods that would help me approach things differently to make my life more enjoyable and healthier. This helped me find workshops that were helpful in self discovery and empowerment. I felt this was important for my journey to becoming happier, healthier, and more successful. I felt so positive that I wanted to spread the good energy to others. It allowed me to focus on what I believe is important for migraine prevention and how to deal with one when it does occur. These three things have proven to be very successful for me: a healthy digestive system, physical activity, and good emotional health.
