Wow, I can honestly say I have wanted to write this post for so long but I wasn't really sure how to go about it. You see I suffered for YEARS with migraines, they started out pretty few and far between but quickly escalated to monthly and then weekly and sometimes daily. Not just a head ache that you slowly move through your day with. They were debilitating. No light. No sound. No movement. Someday's it hurt to breath and in sets the panic and next thing you know your in the emergency room ... AGAIN. Getting more prescriptions, pain pills, and tips when you know none of them work but you are so desperate at that point. Then you get two shots in your butt and in a short time later you sense that you can move your body enough to get back to the car and go home and go straight the bed. Oh wait, you have a newborn and a 1 yr old so life can't just stop dead in its tracks multiple days in a week.
It was a never ending vicious cycle that I personally lived. The days you felt normal were spent playing catch up. Work, kids, house, etc. If you have ever dealt with a migraine, even just one, you will understand the emotion behind this post.
Everyday my kids would see me take medicine to start my day. Every day was different. Could be preventative, could be because I felt on coming on, or it could be a crap its here and I have to do what I can to get through today because I have to take care of the kids. Everyday, that is the first thing they saw their Mom doing. JUST TO FUNCTION. I honestly could write a book about this but at the age of 24, I said no more, you can read more of that story HERE. For now I want to share with you information that I stumbled across in the craziest of ways but have been obsessed with learning more ever since.
How staggering is this? Every year it is estimated that employers lose 13 BILLION in lost work days due to migraines. Not a big shocker if you take into consideration that 36 million people in America suffer from migraines. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, there are three times as many women than men who suffer from these headaches and other associated symptoms.
However, there may be hope for you as there was for me. My natruopath recommended Shakeology to me, although there are no clinical trials that indicate Shakeology will or won't reduce your migraine symptoms there are plenty of customer testimonials who will attest to how their daily shake has helped them. Some no longer need any meds (ME) and others who haven't experienced a migraine since drinking Shakeology. Others have seen them greatly reduced.
I suffered from migraines for years. Went through numerous exams, tests and different doctors. I was on Imitrex, Maxalt, you name it. Also to mention I was on ADHD (Strattera) and anxiety medications. Shakeology also played a good part in it. I slowly weaned off the medications and have been medication free since January 2010 and use natural remedies if I do have bad migraine spells which don't happen as often as before. It has been pretty rare that I get migraines/headaches.-
I have been on Shakeology for two months, I drink it every day. I have had to carry around a prescription for my migraines for the past few years because I was having them almost weekly. I have not had a migraine in almost two months - I don't think this is a coincidence. - VitaminDee
I have suffered from migraines for 15+ years. I would get approx. 2-3 migraines every month. This was mainly due to blood sugar levels being out of whack. I often skip breakfast and I know that that definitely had something to do with it. I started drinking Shakeology in August and I drink it in the morning (breakfast). Since then, I've had one minor migraine. - Lisa Blinn
“I’ve been taking Excedrin daily for years due to headaches and migraines. Since I started drinking Shakeology® daily five weeks ago, I rarely have ANY headaches. Geez…the money I’ve saved on medicine, alone, is worth it! Not to mention, I hardly have any cravings,” commented Josephine.
My Husband and I both suffer from migraines...and he has had NONE since starting Shakeology 2 months ago and I've only had one!
I have taken Imitrex, Maxalt, Fiorinal... haven't had to take any of them in 2 months!
