Question: I take supplements and exercise almost every day. I eat organic foods and generally eat out only during travel. However, I cannot find a solution to migraines that are triggered by weather pressure. What can you recommend?
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
One reason for continued migraines is drinking too much caffeine. The best course to take is to reduce your caffeine intake by switching from coffee to white tea, which has considerably less caffeine.
You should be able to go to a cup in the morning and one in the evening. Your headaches should get considerably better.
One test to see if it is the caffeine is when you first begin to develop a migraine after suddenly stopping the caffeine, drink a cup of the tea and see if the headache goes away (usually in 10 to 20 minutes). If so, go to drinking the tea twice a day as described.
Caffeine in low doses can reduce migraines, but in higher amounts can make them much worse. R-Lipoic acid in a dose of 300 to 400 mg with each meal and acetyl L-carnitine in a dose of 1,500 mg twice a day also will reduce migraine attacks and severity.
