I am very sorry to hear that you have migraines, Beth.
But happy to hear that you are staying in bed.
I don’t know if it can be of any use to you:
We struggled for many years with my daughter who had recurring migraines with aura.
My son also had them.
My daughter is free of them, now.
The thing that seems to have been the “removal of cause” was the careful removal of dental amalgams (the “silver” fillings that are 50% mercury). Also did some very slow de-tox following removal.
Following Kelly’s success, my son then had the mercury fillings removed from his mouth. I haven’t asked him recently for an update.
A few years back I had a series of health issues that I thought I had cleared up. But then struggled for a year with pain in the back side of my neck, numbness in one arm, and intense pain in it whenever I sneezed (like a thousand little needles all going in at once – the pain didn’t last, fortunately.) I thought I had a pinched nerve, had massages, chiropracty, etc
Then, I happened to hear an interview on CBC Radio with Dr. Jock Murray from Dalhousie University who I kind of knew from the 15 years that we lived in Halifax-Dartmouth. He had moved into specialization on MS. Near the end of the conversation he mentioned in passing, that there was a symptom they could not figure out: pain in the neck.
I immediately googled “MS symptoms”. And found a very good description of what I had been dealing with for the past year. I immediately booked an appointment and started the removal of mercury fillings.
There was immediate relief from symptoms. I could sneeze with abandon! The numbness stopped.
I did not lose another night’s sleep because of neck pain, although it did take some time before there was complete alleviation of sometimes low-level ache.
Anyhow – if you happen to have any mercury fillings in your mouth, you may want to consider removal.
Mercury ain’t good for you!!
I have posted a lot of the science on my blog. There’s a group of people centred in Radisson who work on it. We organized a “Mercury Jamboree” at the University and brought in resource people. But the Dental College declined to attend, as did Toxicology, Hydrology, and Medical College.
In January 2013 through the UN, the 5th and final round of negotiations on stopping the use of products that contain mercury set out the Agreement for member countries for the phase-out of mercury fillings (among other things).
I discussed the Agreement with President Busch-Vishniac of the University of Sask hoping that there might be some pressure brought on the intransigent Dental College. At the last meeting of Senate I had a conversation with Ken Sutherland, Acting Dean of Dentistry. They continue to defend the use of mercury fillings (I think because of liability issues). HOWEVER! He said he’d been in the U.S. and in conversation with dentists down there, he understood that the International Treaty meant that IT IS THE LAW: the dentists HAVE TO stop using mercury. He was fine with that: we have to comply because that is the law. Nothing to do with “the science” of mercury fillings, even though this is a University!! But never mind – I don’t care HOW they get there, just as long as they arrive!
Take good care,
