LURE OF THE FORBIDDEN
There's nothing like a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie. I haven't made them in years because I always get a massive migraine from them. But I THINK that is about to change. I say THINK because it's too soon to tell quite yet, but. . .

You know how I told you I was starting a new natural hormone replacement regimen that's supposed to cure migraines? At first I was only able to try the combo hormones but that's not what the book THE MIGRAINE CURE recommends and starting Tuesday I was finally able to get a prescription for the separate dosing syringes of hormone gels. I had a migraine on Wednesday but I HAVEN'T HAD ONE SINCE!!!!

You might not understand what a big deal this is. It's rare for me to go more than three days without one. Some weeks I have one every single day. I never go anywhere without my Zomig. Migraines have ruled my life for nearly forty years. I believe you've got to take charge of your own health, and I've been on a quest for years to find the cause and eliminate the pain.

I think I'm on the right track. The key is balancing my hormones. I had a complete hysterectomy when I was 23. My body hasn't made progesterone since. Reading about all of this, it was like a light bulb went off. There are four key components to the Migraine Cure:

Natural hormones (Triest, progesteron and testosterone)
Melatonin at bedtime
Magnesium
Gut health

Here's a link that gives an overview: http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2006/dec2006_cover_migraine_01.htm

So this weekend, I'm planning on making chocolate chip cookies and we'll see what happens. If I have no pain, you'll be able to hear me scream clear in California. LOL

LOL K! Folks, what she's not telling you is that she's as bad as me and actually STARTED me with my interest in natural healing. It's yet another way KB has corrupted me. LOL

Still feeling great this morning. I'm in shock. LOL

Man, looking forward to hearing those words from Sarah! We're on the links you provided, and I promise to buy the choc chip cookies at conference.

I hope your cookie baking is a success and you're now pain-free. What an exciting time for you, if it works. I had a complete hysterectomy three years ago, so I've been reading about natural HRT too. I swear some of the doctors around here are so clueless!!

Oh Colleen this is fabulous. Wow. And you're smiling every time I see you, and it might have been through pain.

All the more reason why you're the best!!

Lots of love, Rachel
