Hi Marnie -
I get these too. I get a few migraines a year but the worse one I ever got was after a Liver Flush
that didn't flush out of my system all the way. It was like 10 ice picks! And after the first day it wasn't so bad but lasted 13 days. I tried everything, even broke down after drinking tons of water and getting my minerals and electrolytes to go to the doc in the box and get a shot of painkiller. It put me out for 8 hours but when I woke up, the pain was still there.
Finally, what got me over it was running into a natural healer at my health food store, who prescribed ibuprofin for imflammation (I was surprised by that suggestion, actually), 2+ year old miso soup in hot water and cold compresses on my head. I was to take the ibuprofin, put an ice pack on my head and take a mug of hot water, stir in a tbsp of the miso paste (brown rice was the one I got) and sip, 2-3 times a day. I have to tell you that within 30 mins of getting home and doing this, my headache was gone. Later the healer told me that he had merely reminded me that I could heal myself, and that it wasn't really out of my control. Nonetheless, when I am feeling bad now with die-off (several times in the past few weeks with a Bowel Cleanse
now) I have tried to remember this. It does help.
