I suffer from migraines and several years ago I was not in a good place. I was overmedicated, was put on a very rigid elimination diet to determine whether it would improve my migraines, and my father passed away. I was depressed, gained 15 pounds, felt lethargic, my cognitive function was affected by the medications, and my migraines were not getting better. On top of that, I got sciatica and finally knew I needed to do something about my health and well-being. I changed doctors and saw a different internist and neurologist. My internist took one look at me and knew I was drugged up. She did a toxic screen and the tests showed that I was at toxic levels of one of the migraine medications (at the time I was on 3 very high dose migraine medications prescribed by another doctor). My new internist immediately weaned me off all 3 medications. I also started to exercise with a physical trainer/health coach. Through her support, I lost the weight that I had gained and felt more energized and got out of my depression. This was a new beginning for me.

Let’s face it, change can be hard because we may be too comfortable in our current situation or have some ambivalence. You may be thinking:
