Congrats on figuring out something beneficial to your health. I remember reading once that all humans are in fact allergic to grains in some way,
just that some people are much more so. Most people don't notice any negative effect but that doesn't mean there is not a negative effect to be
Yes, I did an experiment that my doc thought had nothing to do with headaches.
I don't discount a doctors expertise but the way I see it, the doctor had training some odd years ago and in all aspects relating to disease and
health. There is no possible way that any doctor could ever keep tabs on the gap of knowledge they have from the time they graduated to present day
on every problem that can happen to a humans health.
So what makes a doctor more of an expert on one specific health issue than say me who just spent a months time researching that specific health issue.
If anything I could teach the doctor a few things.
Example: My wife had chronic hives on and off (though at least a little everyday) for over a year. I told her as I was dropping her off at the
allergist (the best in the state I am told) "I've been looking into this condition quite a bit, I really think it is the prescription medicine you are
taking for _____ (left blank cause nobody needs to know, I like to keep some things private, though if you have chronic hives PM me).
She laughed (she works in health care)but I made her mention it to the allergist who also said that was crazy (probably not those exact words)
anyhow, long story short after suffering with hives everyday for over a year I finally convince her to stop taking the prescription as she had nothing
to lose (it wasn't a necessary med).
Low and behold the next day her hives were better, within 2 months they disappeared completely and haven't returned since. Doctors are great, and I
do consider them experts in health but that doesn't mean they are an expert in what is ailing you. Oh, by the way the allergist just gave her more
prescriptions, a different a stronger anti-histamine cocktail every 3 months that masked the issue somewhat but never cured it. The side effects
from the additional prescriptions were not fun for her.
Just felt like I should share my experience. Congrats again OP, migraines are the worst. My wife gets those too and I have been pushing her to stop
eating grains for a long time but she won't budge. she thinks it is genetic cause her dad gets them too, well her dad eats grains also
people never learn.
