  1. Dear Sue, This is a response to your comment on the The many marvels of the mysterious mushroom page of the Science Matters portion of the David Suzuki Foundation WEB site. I'm posting this as I feel that your comment was off topic, however, you provided the URL to this site. I was diagnosed with cluster headaches some 40 years ago. I immediately went to the local university medical library to research migraines in general and cluster headaches in particular. Needless to say, I found NOTHING! So, I started experimenting on my own. I found several things. ANYTHING that was reported, by sufferers, to trigger migraines, triggered my cluster headaches. (I actually had a headache that lasted 3 months!) However, this was NOT true all the time. I ultimately found that: exposure to bright light (anything bright enough to cast a shadow), and / or eating poorly, and / or sleeping poorly all, cumulatively, increased the possibility that the usual culprits might trigger a cluster headache. Since then: I ALWAYS wear the darkest sunglasses I can find. (Originally they were glasses that transmitted 14% visible light, when these were no longer available and my personal stock was depleting, I replaced them with glacier glasses that transmitted 4.7% visible light.) (WARNING: glacier glasses are NOT FOR ROAD USE. I can get away with them now because I've worn glasses that transmitted 14% visible light, consistently for the 34 years before I switched, so for me 14% visible light was normal.) I see to it that I maintain have a well balanced diet, to ensure I get all the nutrients I need. (Even when I can't eat properly, for any reason, this was taken care of by taking the best multi-vitamin I could find, I've now upgraded to a multi-nutrient.) I also see to it that I always have a good night's sleep. (Even if that means intentionally sleeping in.) I have not had a headache in some 30 years, and counting.solutions, at least for me
