    Diet and Clusters

    Hi Rainmaker, I’m extremely happy to say that my clusters have been gone for years now. Around Thanksgiving, I overindulged a bit and had a small migraine, but nothing two Aspirins couldn’t help. I haven’t had a massive episode since my diet adjustment. No meats, no dairy, no processed foods, and no added sugars in my regular diet. I got so much better at cooking and found great recipes online that work for me. I work two jobs now, full time and one part-time, and also I’m taking college classes. It’s a lot of work, but I’m living without pain and feeling great. I hope everyone out there takes steps to find what works for them because I truly believe what you eat is the key. Thanks so much for checking back with me.

    Thanks so much for your comments, CHfather. I wish others would try this as well and post. Also, I'm not trying to sell anything, although I've spent a lot of money on products based on pain reduction, and products related to treating these cluster headaches. The shock for me was the speed the diet change worked. Normally, regardless of what I ate, I would get clusters between 7pm-10pm in the evening, especially during the summer, and they would last for an average of 3 hours. My exact new diet: I started off with a morning breakfast smoothie: 1 banana, two cups of mixed salad greens, 5 strawberries, 3 celery stalks, chia seeds, 2 cups of water. Blend and drink. I also started taking a couple supplements in the morning: Non-flush Niacin, Vitamin C, Multi-vitamin, B-12. Lunch is salad: Bowl of salad greens, 1 whole tomato, handful of red onions, 1 avocado, vegan salad dressing (Only way to get dressing without processed chemicals.) I add about a cup of white rice and black beans on the side. Dinner is where I play around with different ingredients, but I specifically stay away from dairy, meat, and processed foods. Creamy Potato soup: Potatoes, celery, onions, garlic, and carrots. In a pot sauté until celery is clear. Add vegetable broth until covered. Boil for 20-30 minutes. Take half of the soup out of the pot and blend. Add blended portion back to soup. Delicious! I drink green caffeinated tea, sometimes black coffee, and water only. No more sodas or carbonated beverages. It's been wonderful to come home and not have to worry about the pain creeping in, so happy! I hope my posts can help others with their pain.

    Diet and Clusters

    Thank you for your comments, Jon019. I do get a little carried away especially after suffering for so long and finally finding what works for me. I really want others to try this and see how effective it is. It's felt like an uphill battle for years with these headaches, and I know I was willing to try anything to get them to stop. Changing the way I ate was a huge adjustment, but the shocker was how quickly it worked. I would have expected it to take much longer of a diet adjustment to effect the clusters, but they were completely gone after two days. I'm normally a very anxious person and work in a very stressful work environment. I've had some major stresses, but nothing has brought back even a slight headache in two months. You'd never believe the amount of work I get done, and how clean my house is now that I'm not crumpled up in bed with pain. My mom has also had a complete breakthrough with her migraines. Will someone else please try it and post?

    Diet and Clusters

    Hi Everyone, I'm probably going to be the first to tell you that clusters can absolutely be cured. As I have said in previous posts, I suffered for years with clusters and intense debilitating pain. I went to three neurologists who prescribed me Imitrex, Percocet, and Oxygen, but told me they could not figure out this problem. I was so sick of the constant pain holding up my life, I did something drastic. I stopped eating all processed foods, meat, and dairy. My diet is fruit, vegetables, beans and rice. All I drink is tea and water. It was like a miracle. In two days they were gone, and during the summer, the worst time of year for my clusters. They've been gone for two months, and I have my life back. My mom had chronic migraines also. She changed up her diet. Gone. She was so upset she didn't try this when she was younger. No meds. No doctors. Are you ready to live again? Why is there not more research on the link between diet and clusters? Medications have side effects and are expensive. Can we get some research on diets linked to clusters and diet that cures it?

    Hi GreenEyes, I also have green eyes and cluster headaches, so we have a lot in common. As I have said in my other posts, I have been cluster free for two months now. I've had this monstrous pain for years that runs on cycles. I've been prescribed Imitrex, Percocet, and Oxygen, but none of that cured me. After seeing 3 neurologists, I was so sick of the constant pain holding up my life, I did something drastic. I stopped eating all processed foods, meat, and dairy. My diet is fruit, vegetables, beans and rice. All I drink is tea and water. It was like a miracle. In two days they were gone, and during the summer, the worst time of year for my clusters. They've been gone for two months, and I have my life back. My mom had chronic migraines also. She changed up her diet. Gone. She was so upset she didn't try this when she was younger. No meds. No doctors. Are you ready to live again?
