For those of you who follow me on Facebook or even are in constant communication with me, you would know that I get an excessive amount of migraines. In fact, I was getting migraines about three to four times a week to be exact.
It was exhausting, frustrating and just straight up annoying.
I started asking everyone I knew and even went to my Facebook friends to see if they had any advice for getting rid of migraines. Everyone was so helpful and gave me all the resources and help I needed. Along with their advice and research, I started to do my own. With this research, I found that a side effect of someone with a gluten intolerance is constant migraines.
Now, before these migraines started occurring, I have had years and years of stomach problems. After every meal, my stomach would hurt and I was always in pain. The doctor had taken me off of gluten once before, but that was years ago when being gluten-free was weird and the food was NASTY. So my gluten-free diet didn’t last long at all.
Despite my awful past experience with being gluten-free, I decided to give it a try once again. I was so desperate at this point what I was willing to try anything. Like let me tell you, I was about to go get botox that’s now awful my migraines were.
So I went to my pantry and tossed out everything that contained gluten, went to the store and bought all the gluten and dairy-free foods that I could. Was it expensive? Heck yes!! Did it help? OHHH HECK YESS!!
My first-week being gluten and dairy-free I did not have one migraine!! It’s been about a month now of being strict with my diet and I have only had one headache since I decided to go gluten and dairy-free.
The amazing thing too, is that my stomach no longer hurts, I’m not getting migraines anymore, I have SOOO MUCH ENERGY, my stubborn acne has started to go away and I no longer am feeling tired and groggy.
I will forever swear on my gluten and dairy-free diet. And surprisingly, I have found that gluten-free vegan foods are actually SO GOOD (now). So thank you to all the gluten-free, dairy-free companies out there that have (finally) learned how to make good food for people like me 😉
