In ad­di­tion to the tips on man­ag­ing headaches (see cir­cle on right), you can also try to:

Detox once or twice a year. Cleans­ing the liver al­le­vi­ates many mi­graines. Af­ter a detox, it is a good time to de­tect food sen­si­tiv­i­ties. Try elim­i­nat­ing some items, in con­sul­ta­tion with a di­eti­tian, to see whether they are con­tribut­ing to your mi­graines.

Eat reg­u­larly to keep your blood-sugar level sta­ble. This means a whole­food diet with lots of veg­eta­bles, whole­grains and some qual­ity protein with each meal. Avoid food colour­ing, ad­di­tives and preser­va­tives.

Seek help from a health pro­fes­sional who is able to as­sess the body align­ment and struc­tural im­bal­ances which con­trib­ute to some mi­graines. You can also try adding half a cup of dried gin­ger.

Con­sider a cal­cium sup­ple­ment with vi­ta­min D. Try 1000mg of cal­cium hy­drox­ya­p­atite at night.

Make a chicken broth from the bones of an or­ganic freerange chicken, then add a lit­tle sea­weed, some fresh greens, cel­ery and a lit­tle rice or pearl bar­ley.
