Abstract

Background: Research shows that migraine brains have hyperactive sensory organs and multiple sensory receptor connections. Hyper activity of these organs needs extra supply of nutrition to support increased electrical activity. Today’s medicines reduce or prevent the functioning of these neurons by blocking essential voltage dependent calcium or sodium channel instead of providing nutrients. We asked: if we provide support for extra electrical activity of migraineurs, would it prevent migraines without the use of medicines?

Methods: We reviewed published literature and conducted research over 6 months studying 650 volunteer migraineurs in a migraine-research Facebook group. Participants were screened for migraine types, answered a questionnaire on medical conditions, medicines used, and lifestyle. They were provided instructions on the use of the migraine protocol and were evaluated weekly.

Findings: Migraine frequency appears to be exacerbated by carbohydrate-rich and salt- and water-poor diets and may be worsened by medicines that block voltage gated calcium or sodium channels. Stopping these medicines, reducing carbohydrates and increasing saline in electrolytes appears to prevent and/or stop migraines.

Conclusions: H2O and Na efflux from cells caused by glucose, electrolyte mineral (Na , Cl-, K ) ratio may be disrupted in carbohydrate heavy diets causing migraines. Changes to diet that include increased salt intake along with reduced carbohydrate intake appears to prevent glucose induced electrolyte changes which then decreases migraine frequency. In the present study, all participants who made these dietary changes were able to eliminate migraine medications and remained migraine free.
