Migraine Smoothie and Green Juice

migraine smoothie and green juice

Migraine smoothie and green juice, do they work for migraine? You have all seen it. The picture of the green juice with the red letters that say Migraine Reliever. Then a list of fruit and vegetable excreta to relieve your migraine. But what if those fruits or veggies are triggers? It doesn’t always add up. Proceed with caution when changing diet and medications.

Migraine Juice Therapy

Passing along buzzwords, pins, commercials, or whatever “miracle” item is trendy will not cure me.

I am often subject to unsolicited advice. Kind of like when I was pregnant and a new mom. Way too many opinions but with great warmth behind them. I have been told many things to do, take, and “heal” myself of migraine attacks. Most of them prove how very uninformed nonmigraine sufferers are. Green drinks, Excedrin migraine, sticking my feet in a sink, or whatever trendy pin tossed around won’t heal me.

The informed group that I listen to is still grasping at straws and has been for my entire life. Unsolicited advice is often irritating, but I’ve learned to take it in stride and try to learn or discard the misinformation. I used to roll my eyes at advice, but now I see it as a sign that I am cared about. When someone sends me something, I know they are thinking of me and trying to help.

Now that I am more informed about my health and daily headaches, I welcome any suggestions and add them to my arsenal bag. Everyone is different and reacts differently. I am no exception. One thing will not heal me but finding a combination that can balance me is always the goal. I now try to look into any advice given to me to see if it fits my situation.

Migraine Smoothie

As a migraine sufferer, no magic migraine smoothie will make my neurological disease disappear. Going along with what I said before, one thing will not “cure” me. The more I learn about myself, the more I find that it takes a well-rounded approach to health. Since my medication vacation, I have tried to refrain from being placed on more preventative medication, so I have looked into alternatives. Green drinks do seem to make me feel better.

My body seems less irritated when I eat/drink anti-inflammatory foods. This is not to say that I don’t eat many cookies and candy. I am not on a restricted migraine diet and only eliminate trigger foods. Once again, everyone is so different, but I see the green drink as beneficial to my life. I try to drink them when I can. With that said, I could never stomach the stuff while in the throes of a migraine. I get super nauseous, often throw up from the pain, and can barely stomach water and crackers with my meds. I have never reached for a green drink to “rescue” me during this time, and I could never live without my rescue meds. It is strictly a preventative for me that I use with many other tricks I’ve learned over the years.

It’s all about finding the right balance for me! I still haven’t found it and am unsure if I ever will with my body and life changes. I continue to try and welcome any advice (even if some of it is asinine.)

Do you have a favorite migraine smoothie or green drink that makes you feel better?
