Migraines: They have existed for many years without any real form of control or cure, and are provoked by the intake of a multitude of different foods. They tend to come in different forms and degrees of severity, from mild ones that allow a sufferer to eat certain foods, but not others, to more severe ones where a sufferer is forced to cut out the daily intake of many foods.
As a non-migraine sufferer, eating things like chocolate, fish, eggs, etc. is part and parcel of living a normal life. But as a migraine sufferer, things are very different. Migraines can strike at any age, although usually less severely in younger people who tend to suffer more from stomach migraines. These in turn tend to develop into more aggressive migraines later in life. Stomach migraines usually have symptoms such as, stomach pains, nausea, abdominal cramping and vomiting.
As the young migraine sufferer gets older, the migraines tend to become more aggressive and more constant. Events that occur in the blood stream or vascular walls result in severe migraines or headaches. No one really knows for sure what causes migraines, however there are several different theories. One of these theories is that there is a change in two chemicals that occur naturally in the body, histamine and serotonin. Experts believe that certain foods, stress, anxiety, etc. can cause these two chemicals to fluctuate, causing stomach pains, and migraine headaches.
But by using aluminum free bicarbonate of soda, these chemical changes can be controlled, thus allowing a migraine sufferer to lead a more normal life. Bicarbonate of soda acts by instantly shifting the blood pH into the alkaline and reducing stomach acids when taken orally. Histamine releases stomach acids of which bicarbonate of soda is antagonistic to. There are two different methods for using bicarbonate of soda to control migraines, depending on the severity of the migraine sufferer.
1. The First Method: Stir one half teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda into a glass of water, once in the morning and then again in the evening. Take first thing in the morning on an empty stomach one hour before eating, and then again in the evening one hour after last eating. After taking the bicarbonate of soda, it is advisable to stand and gently walk about for five minutes to allow the gasses to be released from the intestine and the stomach by burping.
2. The Second Method: Follow the same procedure as the first, but only take the bicarbonate of soda at the first symptoms of a migraine or headache. Bicarbonate of soda is taken in the same way as the first method every two or three hours throughout the day, and then again at bed time. Only take bicarbonate of soda on an empty stomach, allowing at least one hour before eating or one hours after last eating. Gently walk about afterwards to allow the gasses to be released from the stomach and intestine. This method is more suited to the occasional migraine sufferer.
My Personal Experience: I have been a severe migraine sufferer all my life. However, about 12 months ago I was advised to take bicarbonate of soda as a way of controlling a stomach inflammation disorder. What I noticed was, that not only did the bicarbonate of soda begin to control the stomach disorder, but it also began to control my migraine disorder by allowing me to eat like a normal person again.
During the last 12 months: On two occasions I stopped taking the bicarbonate of soda for a few days to see if there would be any negative side effects. On both occasions during those few days I suffered severe migraine attacks that lasted several days more. I continue to this day to lead a normal life free from all migraine symptoms and attacks. The daily bicarbonate of soda treatment allows me to eat everything and anything at any hour of the day or night.
The first method can be used over a prolonged period of time, and is considered more suitable for severe migraine sufferers. Aluminum free bicarbonate of soda has also been used to cure both cancer and chronic kidney disease.
