A high percentage of children, teens and young adults with migraines have a deficiency of Vitamin D, riboflavin (B2), and Co-enzyme Q10.
This information was taken from a study done among patients at the Cincinnati Children”s Headache Center and presented at the 58 th Annual Scientific Meeting at the American Headache Society, in San Diego, California.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says so. The over prescribing of these drugs is helping fuel the alarming surge in drug-resistant superbugs.
More than 2 million people a year are infected by drug-resistant germs and some 23,000 die of their infections.
Treating viral infections such as sore throats, sinus infections are typically caused by fungi, that aren’t affected by antibiotics.
See my book “Prescription Alternatives” for other ways of treating such problems, and ask your physician if an antibiotic prescription is really necessary for your condition.

A study published in the American Journal of nutrition in 2015
showed that cutting back on sugar may make foods taste sweeter than they do when you eat a more sugary diet.
A group of people were given a low-sugar diet which replaced 40% of their sugars with protein. After 3 months the low-sugar group rated vanilla puddings and raspberry beverages as tasting sweeter than usual compared to the group of people in the study that had a high sugar diet.
My suggestion is to cut back on processed foods that are high in sugar. Look for “OSE” at the end of the ingredient. Example: Sucrose, Fructose.
1. Vitamin C
2. Vitamin E (Natural mixed tocopherols)
3. Beta carotene
These supplements can slow the progression of this condition, especially in people at high risk for developing age-related Macular Degeneration.

New research published in The Journal of Neuroscience found that sleeping in a side position is better than resting on your back or stomach for eliminating brain waste–which results from chemicals building up over time, potentially causing cognitive health problems, such as Alzheimers.
My advise if you are not a natural side sleeper, try bolstering yourself with pillows.
The Los Angeles Times reports that nearly one-third of drugs cleared by the FDA are later flagged for serious safety issues. In a review of 232 drugs approved by the FDA, researchers found that 71 of them were later flagged for safety issues that resulted in a recall, a health risk alert or a new box label about life threatening health risks.
Most drugs are tested on fewer than 1000 people, who are studied for 6 months or less. Unfortunately side effects or complications are more likely to develop in a more diverse population of takers over a longer period of time.
My advise is check with your physician or pharmacist about the length of time the drug they are prescribing and dispensing has been on the market. See if an older drug that has the same benefits is available.
Scientists at Boston University studied more than 4,000 people over a 10 year period. They found that the ones consuming at least one artificially sweetened drink a day were almost three times more likely to have a stroke or to be diagnosed with dementia, than those who had one or fewer a week.
A parallel study of sugary drinks did not show a similar association.
I wouldn’t recommend either of them. Try drinking clean water instead.
1. Xanthan gum It is used to thicken foods such as dough, ice cream and oil based salad dressings It is not absorbed by our bodies, it passes through the digestive tract and gets processed as waste.
2. Pectin A complex carbohydrate that is found in the cell walls of fruits and vegetables. Apples are a good source. It is added to jelly and yogurt to make it thicker. It can lower cholesterol by encouraging your body to make bile acids.
3. Sorbitol A sugar alcohol found in fruit. It is used to add sweetness with fewer calories to diet food and sugar-free chewing gum. More than 50 Grams a day may cause side effects such as diarrhea, Many products include sugar alcohols on the label.
4. Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein A flavor enhancer contains MSG (monosodiumgluatamate) It can cause the same side effects as MSG. Can also be called glutamate on the label.
5.Potassium bromate A dough strengthener, allowing it to rise extra high.
It has been shown to cause cancer in animals and most counties have banned it. Check the labels and pick a bromate free brand.
