Margaret ~ I suffered with debilitating migraines for 6 years. Finally after CT scans, MRI, GI testing and migraine remedies, my gastroenterologist suggested eliminating dairy from my vegetarian diet. I admit to being a bit skeptical at first. How could something so simple cure this condition that dictated my work and social life for years? Well, I began reading food labels and learning all that was available to me about dairy allergies and intolerance. Simultaneously I started on a vegan diet substituting Soy products for dairy. Within 2 months of going dairy-free, my migraines ended. I have not had a migraine since 2003!!
