Migraine Relief from Detox Foot Patches

I used to suffer from migraines A LOT for about 18 years. Then, I found the detox foot patches. I loved them so much, they made such a difference in my life, that I started my own company selling the foot patches. However, it was a difficult 18 years. My migraines were the common migraines you get with the aura, then the pounding headache that feels like those ice cream headaches you get when you eat too much ice cream too fast? Except they lasted days. And my life was where more than 50% of the time I was suffering from a migraine. That is no way to live.

I have been able to figure out my triggers, which helped. I found out that the two biggest triggers for me were aspartame (nutrasweet) and MSG (monosodium glutamate). After reading more about these two chemicals, I found out they fell into a category called excitotoxins. Basically, they enter the blood brain barrier, and cause your brain cells to go berserk and eventually die off. (Ack!) I read somewhere once that MSG is what scientists have used on lab rats to DECREASE their IQ!! Holy cow, and we are putting that stuff in our bodies on a daily basis! And, we are feeding it to our kids, who are still developing mentally. Yikes. And that is just MSG. Aspartame has the highest rate of complaints of adverse reactions according to the FDA. It originally was created to be an ulcer drug, but the testing on it didn't pass, because of too many side effects. The story goes that a scientist dropped some onto a table, and put his hands on it. Later, he licked his finger only to find that it tasted super sweet. So they decided to re-submit Aspartame to the FDA for approval as an artificial sweetener, and sure enough, it passed!! Migraines are one of the top adverse reactions, along with epilepsy, dizziness, anxiety, depression, irritability, brain lesions, MS-like symptoms and the list goes on and on...

So, I stopped drinking diet pop, heck, I stopped drinking soda pop altogether. I started reading food ingredient lists, and not purchasing foods that have MSG in them. But those toxins (years of use) were still in my head, causing my migraines. So that is where the foot pads come in. I started using the foot patches and within a month my migraines started decreasing dramatically. I used to get 1 or 2 migraines a week, they were awful. Now, I maybe get 1 or 2 migraines a YEAR. And they are very mild compared to what I used to get. I feel so much better as a result, and I am so thankful.

I do recommend using them for at least one month straight, and putting them on your toes as this picture shows:

It would be better to use them for 2 months straight, if you can. And then wear them 2x per week for a while, and then you can slow down to once or twice a month for maintenance. If your migraines start coming back, start wearing the foot pads more frequently.

Remember to also decrease your aspartame and MSG consumption. That will greatly benefit you!
