You guys... I was the girl who grew up in that household who sat down around the dinner table with the family eating the basic “healthy dinner.” 1 protein, 1 veggies, 1 starch, & a glass of whole milk. I am also that person who suffers from migraines & thought it was normal for your belly to hurt after each meal. As I got older, I started to learn about how food effects the body & what we fuel our body with is very crucial. At 19 years old, I learned that my migraines were because I had food allergies and the first thing I eliminated was milk but I still had my migraines. Over the last 10 years, I started cutting down on diff food allergies in hopes to ease the inflamed blood vessels. Things did get better but not 100%. In my searches to finding answers I ended up meeting a friend who taught me that the reason we have SO many health issues is because we are lacking nutrition. I thoughts- that makes perfect sense! Essentially our bodies are meant to heal themselves but they can’t without being properly fueled! I was introduced to the Nourish The Body community & finally had the answer I had been looking for since I was 4 years old. My food allergies are 80% better & the only time I get migraines is after a fun night out in the town. 😝 I am so happy that my body feels better than ever!!!

According to @mayoclinic
, "Aphasia is a condition that robs you of the ability to communicate. It can affect your ability to speak, write and understand ⠀
language, both verbal and written." Usually, you will see this in stroke patients and requires speech and language therapy to relearn speaking skills.⠀
A person with aphasia may:⠀
〰️ Speak in short or incomplete sentences⠀
〰️ Speak in sentences that don't make sense⠀
〰️ Substitute one word for another or one sound for another⠀
〰️ Speak unrecognizable words⠀
〰️ Not understand other people's conversation⠀
〰️ Write sentences that don't make sense⠀
The Mayo Clinic also states, "Sometimes temporary episodes of aphasia can occur. These can be due to migraines, seizures or a transient ischemic attack (TIA)." Does this sound familiar? ⠀
Transient Aphasia is temporary aphasia seen in Migraine Aura. I get this all the time. It's one of my clues that an attack is seconds away. I've also had severe aphasia where I wrote what looks like gibberish, but looked normal to me while writing it. I scared my professor, it was an email to her letting her know I had to quit my job as lab assistant due to a severe attack that took months to recuperate from. ⠀
Aphasia has affected my writing ability so I try to only write when I don't have symptoms. If I don't realize it, I will the next day when I'm reviewing. ⠀
What are some of your examples of aphasia? Something funny...⠀

Immune challenges, Yes believe it or not many of us are dealing with immune challenges and don’t even know.
At this moment every single person has a certain amount of bacteria, virus, yeast, and parasites in their body. They only give us trouble when they are out of balance.
Underlying immune conditions can cause major issues with migraine headaches, autoimmune conditions, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, digestive issues, hypothyroidism, diabetes, and arthritis.
If you have been struggling with some of these chronic health conditions you may just have an underlying immune challenge, which is preventing your body from healing and repairing.
Believe it or not there are natural ways to help restore your immune system, to boost your immune system in order to balance out these pathogen’s.
We use a combination of whole food supplements and herbs and diet modification to help starve out the bacteria, parasites and yeast. Simple sugars or anything that turns into sugars feeds these pathogen’s. If you have been chronically sick or know somebody who is sick all the time and they are eating lots of sugar it is really hard for them to ever get better and have a healthy immune system.

Aimovig- (Erenumab)- In May, the first drug ever to be specifically designed for migraine (instead of another medication originally designed for things like depression or epilepsy being repurposed) finally hit the markets. Once a month, the user will give his or herself a 15 second injection for migraine prevention.
In the last month, it has provided me with enormous relief, and many claim to get additional relief with subsequent injections. I still have not had any migraine-free days, but I feel that Aimovig has helped reduce the pain levels at each migraine attack. I am so excited about this new class of drugs, and I would love to hear your experiences if you have tried this yet!
To simplify the mechanisms, Aimovig is an antibody that blocks CGRP receptors. Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide is just a protein which scientists believe somehow induces, or is at least correlated, to migraine attacks. CGRP levels in the blood are drastically increased during migraine attack, and their levels fall with migraine relief. Aimovig blocks CGRP receptors so that the protein cannot do its job. Unfortunately, very little is still known about CGRP’s exact role in migraine, and any other functions it may hold.
Aimovig’s company, Amgen, offers a program to reduce the costs of the medicine for the first year, including the first two doses free of charge. So far, the only known side effects are injection site soreness and constipation. However, we have to keep in mind that, as this drug is so new, we do not really know any long-term effects that may result. Consult your neurologist or headache specialist about Aimovig and any other headache management tools.
I did a thing!!! Chronic migraines really suck and the treatments to manage migraines long term are expensive. For alternative treatment I turned to acupuncture and this particular piercing. I have my #daithpiercing
in both my ears and got them while i was still experiencing extreme sensitivity to sound. The piercer I had was excellent and was experienced in doing this piercing for other migraine sufferers. It was like a pop and an instant warming sensation in my face and neck and later on through the night my right side started to relax. Has anyone else gotten this piercing for migraine? #migraine #migrainerelief #migrainepiercing #daithpiercingformigraine

I was a very sick girl on Monday! 😷🤧My face was swollen, my sinuses were swollen, I was congested AND dizzy. It was the strangest thing!!! I used lots of Thieves and Rosemary essential oils and I was able to make it to work on Tuesday.

I love my friend Aryn’s story and how much the supplements I also take and love have helped her severe head pain.
“I tried EVERYTHING to get rid of them! I talked with my doctors, and naturopath....to no avail! I had prescriptions, physical therapy, and had already eliminated sugars from my diet....but my sensitivity just kept getting worse! The slightest thing would become the start of a migraine. I wast just about to visit a specialist to talk about botox injections in my neck.....when a friend reached out...and she wanted to tell me a little about gut health. Thank the Lord I listened!! I have been taking these supplements for a year now...and I haven't had a migraine in 10 months!! I have thrown away all my prescriptions.
As a fellow migraine sufferer, who has also seen relief since starting with Plexus, my friend Theresa decided to do a little research as to WHY we have experienced this relief. 👇🏻👇🏻 The reason why people who suffer from migraines see a big change when they start Plexus?? The supplements in our triplex combo, address the 4 root issues that contribute to 99% of migraines !! 1. Blood Sugar Imbalance - if your blood sugar is getting too high or too low throughout the day then migraines can be a big side effect of that. Slim is a game changer when it comes to blood sugar regulation.
2. Hormonal Imbalance - this actually ties in with #1
(blood sugar) and #3
(gut health). Insulin is a master hormone and when your insulin is imbalanced then your other hormones are also affected. Most hormones are made in your GI tract and when your gut is compromised your hormones can be affected in a huge way! Slim, Probio5 and Biocleanse all work on this!
3. Gut health - your gut controls SO MUCH in your body. (80% of your immunity, 90% of your serotonin and more) It's your second brain! So many things from sugar and stress to antibiotics and birth control can affect the health of our gut. Poor gut health plays a huge role in whether or not you get migraines! Probio5 and Biocleanse are game changers!
4. Magnesium deficiency- if you don't have enough Magnesium in your body then migraines can be a side effect.”

These are the people that inspire me everyday to do something good with my pain and illness and not just let it consume me negatively. You the real MVP’s. I THANK YOU. I honour you. #thisischronicillness
————————————————————- Don’t let this world make you bitter. Don’t let the actions of other people turn you cold on the inside. Certain things happen that hurt us, people come that leave us, and most of all there are moments when you’re bound to fall. Don’t let those things make you unkind. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to be sad. But it’s never okay to do other people wrong just because you were done wrong. We’re human. We break. We make mistakes. But don’t let pain and sadness run your life. Wake up in the morning and do what you think is right. There are moments in your life where you feel like giving up and you can’t take it anymore. It’s okay. Breathe. Inhale. Exhale. But the things that show your weak side are also the same ones that make you stronger in the long run. It’s all about taking whatever life throws at you and learning from it.
Today was day 1 without taking my migraine medication since getting my daith peirced on Saturday. So far I've had just a slight aching on the left side of my head behind my eyes but I wouldn't call it a headache. Just a creepy little bugger,more annoying than anything else but definitely manageable.
Here's to hoping that this actually helps and that I don't have to use the medication anymore. Especially since it hurt so bad getting it! I'd more than likely do it again though if I had too!! #daithpiercing #justanotherholeinmyhead #migrainerelief #begone #imoveryou #selfie
Day 1 of the new program!! I couldn’t be more excited to see what these next 8 weeks brings!! I love being able to experience these new programs with my fitness freaks of a family!! To cheer each other on and watch everyone’s progress!! If I can do this so can you!! Are you ready?!

Since my migraines are so severe, last school year I had to medically withdraw in the middle of the semester due to my migraines. Last week I had to make the tough decision to not return to my college, Eastern Illinois University, for the fall. But I will be taking classes at my community college so I don't fall too behind. I believe with the Aimovig injections I will be ready to go back in the spring!! Fingers crossed!! #migraine #migrainesufferer #migraineur #migrainerelief #stayhopeful #aimovig
