Migraine Blend Chronicles, Week 4

Missed two non-consecutive days worth of blends this week. I thought I would be fine until Mother Nature brought a migraine Tuesday night. Full on. Made sure not to miss anymore blends since the migraine commenced and modified the blend to remove the greens (and increase the turmeric), since the smell of the greens increased my nausea. Managed to make it through the migraine with at most horrible nausea. I had some disturbance with my vision, sense of hearing, sense

Migraine Blend Chronicles, Week 3:

Still alternating between the Migraine Blend and the Turmeric Milk. I plan to phase out the Turmeric Milk by the end of this month, depending on the weather.

Migraine Blend Chronicles, Week 1:

Still on track, though I won’t be doing daily updates, just weekly ones. The blend will change for the coming week with the addition of a Gluten Free Greens powder, cause I think that would work better for my life. I will be switching from water to Silk coconut milk and adding chia seeds and turmeric powder. This will make the blend more of a migraine blend/meal replacement. Will be updating quantities on my next week’s update. I’ve also added
