The Trouble With Magnesium and Migraines

Getting magnesium supplementation right can make the difference between magnificent relief from migraine headaches or no benefit at all.

In the Wheat Belly, now the Undoctored program, we use the best form of magnesium available, magnesium bicarbonate, that we make ourselves using the Magnesium Water recipe. But it is important to recognize that, even if you have a normal blood level of magnesium, profound magnesium deficiency can be present and will sustain migraine headaches. Long-term consistent use is therefore crucial for effect.

Living for Likes

I’ve been blogging here for almost a decade, and lately, I find myself desiring to say less. I go through phases in which I post everything and phases in which I post very little. I’m less active on social media than I have been in the last several years too, and while I enjoy many aspects of it, I also enjoy my day-to-day life with my family and friends. It seems that I care less about the number of likes or comments I get on Facebook and/or Instagram than I used to. I still enjoy connecting with the friends I made through those mediums, but I’m learning that it’s okay to talk less. When we live for likes, we die by the absence of them, and I never want to give something so silly so much control over my life.

Wheat Belly Pumpkin Pie

Well, the holidays roll around once again . . . and it’s time for everything pumpkin!

Here is a reminder of how us grain-free folk make a wonderful and delicious pumpkin pie that is wheat- and grain-free. Without grains, it does NOT stimulate appetite, does NOT send blood sugar sky-high, does NOT add to arthritis/joint pain, acid reflux, irritable bowel symptoms, leg edema, depression, moodiness, migraine headache, hypertension, dementia, heart disease, or cancer. You can just have your nice big slice of pumpkin pie, even with a big dollop of whipped cream, all without worries.
