Electrolyte Supplementation = No Migraines

I have suffered from migraines for 15 years and this is the first thing that I feel may actually be an answer. I started taking electrolyte supplements (the type athletes use) at least a couple times a day a couple weeks ago and it seems to have completely ended the migraine spree I was on. Plus, I have more energy and feel better over all. I never had it suggested to me by a doctor or any advice online, etc to try this, but it has worked beautifully.

Delaine, that's interesting, I,m always happy to try something natural! Can you tell us what they,re called? Where they,re from?

Glad they're working for you!

Thanks

Hi Juliap3,

I am using 2-4 Electrolyte Stamina pills and a couple Electrolyte Stamina Power Paks (both from Trace Minerals Research) every day as well as an Oxy-Powder capsule (from Global Healing Center) every day or so.

I hope that helps!

Thanks, I had a look at these and see that they contain minerals, I had a mineral imbalance test last week and awaiting results.(I did this as recommended by the migraine revolution book, it says that in some cases a simple correction of minerals is the only problem!) so if I have any imbalances I will def give them a go. Looks like you found yours by pure luck so hope it continues for you :)

It was more like putting 2+2 together actually. I started to notice how all my varied symptoms closely followed those of dehydration, that my mouth would be very dry when I had migraines. I also am aware of the profound research of Dr. Batmanghelidj who found that very many varied diseases would often disappear in his patients when they became properly hydrated.

Good for you, it's always good to look outside the usual thinking surrounding migraines (ie I,ve got a headache take some pills!) which is easy but not very effective as we all know. hope you have kissed the bleeders goodbye for good :)

HELLO - DO YOU THINK THESE MIGHT WORK FOR CLUSTER HEADACHES?? WHERE OR HOW DO YOU GET A MINERAL IMBALANCE TEST?

Pleased to hear about the improvement. Just make sure the supplements don't contain caffeine: it will store up problems.

Nope. No caffeine in it! :-)

I was interested to note that you say to ensure that there is no caffeine in these supplements. I was advised by a consultant to have a strong black coffee at onset of migraine as this can help. Can't say it ever has albeit I have taken this advice on several occasions. What is your experience with caffeine?

It's very odd that so many headache preparations contain caffeine. It helps drugs' absorption into the bloodstream but caffeine is a major cause of rebound headaches. You may feel better immediately after taking caffeine but twelve hours later you are quite likely to have a thumping headache, take caffeine again to control it and thus generate a vicious cycle.
