We do it every year, well some of us. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't. But this year I did make some resolutions. I'm going to put my health first. Now, I know how much of a struggle this is for those of us who struggle with migraines, but it is something I must do.
I recently read a book that talked about what makes up your integrity. What are those things that your inner voice is always calling to you. For me it has always been eating more fruits and veggies. I feel better when I do. I function better when I do. My body can feel the difference. So, my first resolution is going to be to go with my gut, literally and eat more healthy things.
I've been doing some studying on the topic and have found juicing to be a great way for me to add to my daily dose of nutrients. I still eat whole fruits and veggies but have added the juicing. What I have learned is that if we aren't eating enough of the healthy stuff, our body can't get rid of the toxins inside of it. Toxins we pick up from junk food, medication, etc.. Well, most of us take a good amount of medication so maybe this will help me feel better by getting rid of more of the waste.
We'll see, I think it will help. Whenever I've increased my healthy eating in the past, I have felt better overall. Not sure how it effected my migraines, but I'm hoping for a positive side effect.
I do believe that good nutrition, what we put in our bodies, has an impact on our overall health, future and sense of well being.
Happy New Year!
After every migraine, I consider myself a survivor. I may not of cheated death, jury is still out on that one in the medical field, but I have suffered, fought and won. I have even asked for help. But there is still so much you endure on your own. I have survived. Thank you, God!
I have been seeing improvement with my visits to MHNI and having my meds adjusted. I am happy to say I do not need surgery on my syrinx. I was told I am young and have a large spinal column. So, I guess that is a good thing. I will be moving forward with two Facet nerve blocks, though. I have two spots on my spine that really give me trouble, the base of my neck and the top of my shoulder blade area. I really hope this helps. I have heard both good and bad, but I'm willing to risk it. Wish me luck! I'll try to post more often. It is kind of funny because we have been recording my migraines and have seen a couple patterns. My worst is the start of my cycle, so I will be taking Naproxen around that time. The other, the actual funny thing, was that I get one every Sunday. My doctor took a look at my calendars and said, "What's up with Sunday?' I said I guess it's because my husband is a Pastor! Ha Ha Ha on so many levels.
