Why Did Migraines Start On The Diet?
A friend of mine who started doing the diet in December noticed that she started getting regular migraines a few months after starting the diet, whereas she'd never had migraines before (she's 33 yrs. old, though they do run in her family). She now has migraines after virtually every meal. When she went back to eating badly (gluten, etc.) during one week, the migraines went away. I know this is contrary to the usual experience of people on the diet (since usually migraines and other neurological symptoms can get better on a more ketogenic diet). Could it be toxins that have accumulated over the years being released? If so, any sense of when this might subside? Is there anything anyone would recommend she do additionally to try to address the problem?
