Well as some of you know I suffer from health issues, and my migraines have been really bad again, several years ago I was seeing a Doctor down south for my condition and he told me many health related issues including migraine, arthritis, obesity, fibromialgia, depression...just to name a few, are directly related to allergies. He put me on a routine which included a whole food or organic diet, within a few days I noticed a difference(if it was all in my head, thats o.k., it worked), anyway, without starving my weight went down and my aches and pains went away, then I slacked off about 2 years ago, weight went up, pain is back and headaches are unbearable. So I am going back to whole food and green product for cleaning, the transition can be done slowly as you replace stuff so its not so expensive, also foods that are whole, organic, kosher or vegan are acceptable...we have a hard time in the Soo finding the right things so I just replace what I can and don't worry about what I can't.....anyway, any tips and tricks and ways to make life easier will be greatly appreciate, if you have nothing good to say about it...shut-up,lol

I too try to go as organic as i can. I do agree that their is a great difference in my migranes too. I was on every single drug you could imagine sine i was 4 for them and now i get one or two a month... The thing I find the hardest is the organic meat. It is hard to find beef that grass raised and not loaded with anitbiotics and crap. I was trying to get some family get go halves on a cow with me but no luck.... Keep us up to date on the improvements your noticing!!!

I stick them in a pot and plant flowers around them, lol, blend the 2, when I used to have my big gardens I would plant flowers around the perimeter...it attracts the insect that you need to polinate your veggie plants and looks pretty.

migraine suffer's triggers can include, onions, msg, (a preservative found in most or all processed foods, salad dressings, sauces, ketchup etc.... cashew nuts, etc.... look up migraine triggers and you would be amazed at the stuff you never thought of. and chiropractors can help alot with migraines. and so can massage therapists. hell, even if the massage doesnt work.... it sure feels dam good.

I am very well informed as I have had migraines since I was 3, the wrong diet also can cause allergy attacks/sinus headaches, wieght loss/gain and have many other nagative affects on your health, like bluemoon said; look it up(google it)

I as well have been asking family and friends to go half on a cow with me or even half on a half cow, but no luck as well. Maybe , think about it, we could go half together on one? Organic is great by me as well.

i was watching a show the other night and they were talking abut organic foods and when you buy produce they have little stickers on them the was to tell what is organic and what is not is this simple rhyme.

9 is fine- organic
4 is a bore - somewhat organic
8 i hate- non organic

you look art the sticker and if it starts with a 9 it is organic, if it starts with a 4 its not really organic but its ok i guess and if it starts with a 8 it is not organic.
