Like most Americans, Laurie grew up eating the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet), which resulted in nutrient deficiencies in her body. She battled with migraine headaches for a great part of her life. Later, these turned into Trigeminal Neuralgia, sometimes called, the suicide headache. Too many days of her life had been stolen by these debilitating headaches.
She found no help in conventional medicine. Digging into nutritional research with a single-minded zeal, she became determined to find an answer.
Cleaning up her diet, cutting out sugar, choosing organic foods, and detoxing, became her protocol. Laurie also got back into a regular exercise routine. She added supplements to bridge gaps in her diet. She balanced stress in her life. Voila! The headaches disappeared and as a bonus, she discovered her wellness passion!
