Question
Dear Peter

I have been having migraines every day since summer of last year. I never suffered from headaches before. They subsided when the whether got cooler, in October. Now that the warm weather is coming again, my head feels funny. At the moment, it is not painful, but it feels like my head is swelling up. It is a very odd feeling.
I went to the doctor and to the hospital, but they said it is headache tension, which is not the case. I told the doctor that I noticed it comes in hot weather and he said it might be caused by heat, but he wasn't sure. He gave me a medication for migraine and I took them for 3 months. I do not want to take medications this year as well. I want to cure the root of this problem.
Why has it started so suddenly and why does it come in warm weather? Could you suggest any herbal supplement and dietary changes, please?

Answer
Hi Tamara

Sorry about your HA. A few things came to my mind. Your migraine may have some reasons.
•   Allergy to pollen or some plants, which flourish  at summer
•   Candida-yeast overgrowth causing food sensitivity with releasing histamine
•   Changes your clothing in the summer
•   Problem with first cervical vertebra-Atlantis
•   Work position, etc

If you are looking for non-drug approach, there are options:
Change the diet with no, zero gluten, milk, sugar. Make a diary what you eat More information about diet you may find in my EBook“Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”, part 2. Healthy alkaline diet is vital. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240466#longdescr
Make experiment and go to vacation on the time of the exacerbation changes your clothing to cotton  
Try cocoa without sugar
Take Magnesium, vitamin B-2, B-12, D, probiotics, vinpocetine supplements
Find person who does acupuncture, manual therapy of the neck vertebrae, electro magnet therapy
Stop BCP if you take them

I wish you healthy life without headache.
