Goodbye, Migraines!

Goodbye, Migraines!

I am 36 years old and the mother of a 5-year-old. My goal this year was to clean up my diet by eating more fruit and veggies and less processed foods. Aside from tummy toning, my sole purpose for working out has generally been to maintain my health. I’ve been blessed with good genes, so I’ve never struggled with my weight. On March 4th, for my 36th birthday, I asked my hubby to get me a NutriBullet to help increase my fruit and veggie intake.

For the last seven years, I’ve suffered from migraines. They got progressively worse, to the point where I was losing one weekend a month to them. Although medications provided some relief, they made me very dizzy and nauseous. An entire weekend a month… insane, right?! I did all kinds of research and talked to my doctor about foods and triggers to avoid or that would help with no relief.

I can time my migraines because they’re always the weekend that I’m off my birth control pills, so we don’t make plans and, as soon as I feel one coming on Friday night, I use Advil and then the stronger, prescribed drugs before bed. Well, about one month into making smoothies, I waited that Friday night and was absolutely shocked when Saturday morning came and I wasn’t in a fetal position from pain and zero drugs. By that afternoon, I was building Lego houses and taking a walk with my daughter and still nervously waiting for a migraine to attack, not roaming too far from home.

It's now been two months, and I’ve been migraine-free and so ecstatic that I’m able to also decrease the drugs I’m putting into my body. Aside from that unexpected healing, I’ve experienced cleaner, clearer skin and increased energy levels (to keep up with my 5-year-old). I’m constantly preaching the benefits to family and friends and look forward to making smoothies with my mom when she visits us this summer.

My favorite smoothie is the Women's Hormone Balancer and my own creation:

  • 1 leaf collard greens
  • 1/3 carrot
  • 1/2 celery stalk
  • 1/4 beet
  • 1/2 cup red grapes
  • 1/2 cup pineapple
  • about a tablespoon of flax seeds
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Happy blending everyone and cheers to great health!

Wow! I also suffer from migraines. I have many triggers - monthly, the weather, lack of sleep. However, I have not had one migraine since I started using the nutribullet about a month ago. I hope it continues!

I've been nutri-blasting for 5 months now and I've seen a lot of very positive results in my health and my life. The only thing that continues to plague me is my monthly migraine. My migraines are triggered for the same reason as you Veronica, but they usually last 5 days :( Thank you for sharing your story and I hope to have a similar outcome as you did one day! Nadia

I am three weeks into blasting and have noticed some positive changes but nothing as far as the migraines. Is there a certain formula I should be using? I've been varying the ingredients but following the formula of fifty percent greens, fifty percent fruits and a boost. I really was hoping to see an improvement with my migraines.
