Natural Remedies For Migraine

Q. One of your readers requested natural recommendations for migraines. I had tried many migraine treatments.

I also have not had IBS, brain fog, or even the slightest cold. There are a lot of wonderful gluten-free products now. If only I would have known I would have quit a long time ago.

A. Gluten intolerance, or celiac disease, often has neurological symptoms such as migraines or forgetfulness. Not everyone with migraines has celiac disease, but it is worth testing to rule out this serious condition. It is treated by avoiding wheat, barley and rye.
