Hey guys- Here's the backstory: During puberty I got migraines. They went away around age 15/16. They were horrible back then and thankfully they went away. Now, I will very occasionally get a migraine. Up until recently, it only happened when I... (more)
I have been getting daily migraines for 5 years now and no treatment has helped yet. Lately I have been thinking about dieting to try and help them. I have been on the paleo diet for three months now, and the past week I have been trying to... (more)
Do you do dairy? If so perhaps you can get some cream from your local farm. I find Bone marrow really tasty and it's basically pure fat just about. Hope that helps, best of luck!
What can it be?! Apparently, it was not related to low body temp. as electronic thermometer is just not accurate enough.
What different food types have been identified as triggers of migraines, either with an immediate response or cumulative over time? Some folks say that caffeine and citrus can be a cause but I suspect that there may be other agents at work such as... (more)

Hello vdh1979, I also suffer from chronic migraines and have found relief from low-carb diets in the past. I'm also on Topamax currently and I'm considering stopping it and going back on the diet the but wanted to give the med a chance first and... (more)
Has anyone treated migraines following this diet? If so, how strictly did you follow it, and what did you eat? It looks like I'm down to fresh road kill and cucumbers...and I'm not sure about the cucumbers.
Ive been Primal off and on for about 6 months, fully committing about 5 weeks ago. I cut out all grains, legumes, and sugar including natural sugars(except the small amount in my 85% soy-free dark chocolate). But I wasn't really losing any weight,... (more)
Firstly, I understand you are not doctors. I plan on scheduling an appointment as soon as I can, but I was just wondering if anyone in the Paleo community had any ideas. Any input is much appreciated. I've had several UTIs in the past year and... (more)
Hi everybody... first posting, apologies for the tl;dr crowd I am 34 and have been overweight since 7th grade and my highest weight was approx 310. I have also suffered from debilitating migraines since I was 13 and had strep-induced psoriasis... (more)
Originally went on paleo to help long standing migraine issues. Lost over 20 lbs so far and quite a few inches. Even before Paleo I was having episodes of heavy spotting between cycles (50 but no menopause yet) so ob/gyn put me on micronized... (more)
I've gotten migraines since I was 11 (I'm 29 now), but throughout most of my 20s they were infrequent - a few times a month at most. I went mostly paleo (80/20) about a year ago, and saw a dramatic improvement in my migraines - I could go for... (more)
Hackers-I finally convinced my 80+ year-old grandma to go gluten-free in an attempt to lower the frequency of her lifelong, debilitating migraines. She went gluten-free and has been eating Paleo in general since December 1st. Well so far, she... (more)
So, I get migraines, usually one every month, usually on day four five or six of my cycle. Many years ago, when I initially cut out grains, starches and sugars, I went from three or four migraines a month to the one. My migraines began when I was... (more)
Just ran into someone else, like me, for whom eating Paleo has "cured*" them of migraines. So question is: 1) If you have suffered from migraines, has eating Paleo stopped their occurrence? 2) If the answer to 1) is yes --- what color are... (more)
During my period I get frequent migraines (as far as I can tell it has something to do with fluctuating estrogen levels) and drinking a glass of soy milk when I feel one coming on is the only thing I have found that stops them. Any less harmful... (more)
I'm under the impression that phytoestrogens and phytate are the main reasons non-soy-sensitive people avoid soy in the first place, and phytate is more of a "less-is-better" thing than something you need to avoid 100% in order to benefit. So if... (more)
Hey PaleoHacker's, If anyone is willing to read through this all and help, i don't know, I'll do anything to repay for the advice I'll receive...I've asked a couple questions about a set (rather large set) of symptoms I've been having for a... (more)
Ok so first of all, I have searched this board as well as others and haven't found too much information that fits my health issues. I am a 21 year old, 6' male, about 172lbs and looking to gain muscle (and lose bf). I really don't know my bf%... (more)
The first thing that sticks out is the lean meat. No reason to go lean if its grass-fed. Minor reason to go lean if it's not (fatty acid ratios that are minimal to begin with). Cuts closer to the bone are often cheaper. Going with bone-in roasts... (more)
Hi, I've been Paleo for approx 50 days now, gained weight somehow and get bloated and uncomfortable most of the time. I "went Paleo" because I'm trying to get rid of migranes, and 10 lbs of weight loss would be nice! 27yo Female 30% body fat BMR... (more)

I have been getting migraines since I was eighteen and went on the pill. For a long time, I had about one a week. When I started eating a paleo diet, I still got them, but usually only one per month, sometimes skipping a month. I have read through... (more)
One of the greatest things about eating Paleo is the disappearance of migraines that had plagued me since early childhood -- I attribute that to eliminating wheat from my diet. Any other former migraine sufferers out there? BTW I should also... (more)
Hi y'all: I have genital lichen sclerosus and severe migraines. In October, I started a keto diet for my migraines. My migraines didn't get better, but my lichen symptoms were stopped cold, and I hadn't had a flare up in almost 4 months (the... (more)
