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. If it gets cold enough, I’ll bring it back. If not, I’ll be riding out on the Migraine Blend only come February 1 with the addition of turmeric to offset the turmeric I won’t be getting since I’ll be cutting out the milk. Apparently I did have a migraine last week? I

Migraine Blend Chronicles, Week 2:

Got through my step down dosing of the acidophilus tablets. Noticed that with the Gluten Free Greens powder that I actually don’t have to keep taking the tablets every other day because the greens powder (GP) has it in there already.

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

Migraine Blend Chronicles, Day 3:

Didn’t have a blend today as I needed something warm. So I had some soup my sister made with spinach, watercress, celery, yucca, carrots, green plantains, onions, stew beef, seasonings and hella scotch bonnet. It’s literally 🔥 in the back of my throat. 😳 I think this could still count as a migraine aid since it does have greens/veggies (albeit cooked) and capsaicin (scotch bonnet). Nose is runny (from the soup), still feeling great. Noticed that my head/neck regions where
