Has anyone tried the diet where you eliminate every potential migriane trigger from your diet? I'd like to hear from anyone that has. I recenty purchased David Buchholz's book and, while I don't agree with everything he has to say, I am trying the diet he gives. Basically, I've eliminated: onions, all processed meats (including lunch meat), citrus fruits, mushrooms, nuts, alcohol, beans, peanuts/peanut butter, aged cheeses, tomatoes, anything pickled, aspartame, and msg (including all of the items containing "hidden" msg, of which there are many). I am supposed to eliminate caffeine as well, but I am saving that one for last. Anyway, after three weeks, I have gone from having a migraine that lasted one to two days every other day, to one per week (on Saturdays-after sleeping in). Hopefully it isn't a coincidence, but I don't see how it could be at this point. I'll keep everyone posted, but in the meantime, please let me know if you've tried this approach, and what the results were.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
