Hi, newbie here. Looks like I found a great forum!
I have had migraines since I was a teen. Had all the standard work-ups, MRIs, etc., with all the standard prescribed meds. Nothing has been very effective in treating the migraines, which can be crippling at times.
My sister recently ran across research indicating that a wheat/gluten-free diet can help prevent migraines in some people, and I thought I would try it for a month or so to see what happens. Well, I am on Day #10 -- and not one headache so far! Very exciting!
Now for my question. My local health food store herbalist told me that he wonders if in some people (who are not "true" celiacs) it may be the contaminates, chemicals, pesticides, etc., inherent in (traditional) growing/harvesting of wheat that people can be sensitive to - rather than the actual wheat itself. Does anyone know anything about this?
And if this is true, then perhaps I could eat organic wheat products? Or products I make myself with organic (wheat) flour?
Thanks in advance for any assistance or insight(s) you guys may have!
