Migraine-Free Cooking!

My wife occasionally suffers from migraine headaches.  Doctors usually recommend certain medications which deal with the symptoms.  The problem with medications is drugs only mask symptoms.  Drugs do not cure disease or deal with the root cause of the problem.

Recently I discovered a web site called “Migraine-Free Cooking!” written by Heidi Gunderson.  Heidi is focused on dealing with migraine headaches by being careful about what we eat and drink.  For a long time I have believed that 80% or more of our health is based on what we eat, drink, and breathe.

For some people, tomatoes are a trigger.  As are onions.  What about sugar, salt, and milk?  Click here and find out; scroll to the bottom of the page.

Heidi is working on a cookbook, also titled Migraine-Free Cooking! dedicated to sharing recipes for those who suffer from migraine headaches.  I look forward to writing a review.

Fox News on Aspartame (Nutrasweet)

If you use Aspartame on a regular basis, you need to watch this.  If you want alternatives, we need to talk.

More information on Aspartame (Nutrasweet) can be found on the Aspartame Consumer Safety Network.

At some point I plan to do a more complete review of this poison that is commonly found in diet products.  I do not for one minute believe that either the American FDA, or Health Canada always tell the truth or always have our best interests in mind.
