Purine factor + Vegetarninism?


Recommended Posts

Although there are some serious vegetarians here who nonetheless have CH, there also have been many people who have reported that what they eat affects their CH.  Here's one person who experimented a lot: http://www.clusterheadaches.com/cb/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1301882443

So I'd say you should try it since you have noticed that correlation. 

In my conversations with random people I meet about severe head pain, I have now met two who have gone to actual live-in centers where they test the elimination of certain foods to see if there's any effect on head pain (this is probably not CH pain, but you're talking about migraines in your post).  One of them has become almost completely head-pain free by eliminating most meats. (One general principle of the D3 regimen is that it shifts your body's pH from acidic to alkaline. Red meat tends to be very acid-producing. Not vouching for this (although it makes sense to me and the acid/alkaline thing is a widely expressed homeopathic principle), but maybe worth considering. Here's more on the general acid/alkaline topic: http://www.naturalhealthschool.com/acid-alkaline.html

Been reading that purine is a trigger

I haven't eaten meat (including Purina! :D) for 31 years. Prior to that I had the only 2 migraines of my life. BUT I think I was actually migraine free for maybe a couple years before going vegetarian, so I don't know if there could really be a link.  :-?

I guess I mainly just wanted to slip that Purina gag in there.  ::)
