would these talks trigger anything for a miild hypochrondriac? *Dont Laugh*
like say, saying that if you didn't ate so and so or ate too much of so and so you're at High risk of so and so? like ulcers, damaged organs,etc?

I suffer from migraines a lot, on ocassion, and this seems really interesting- but i'm afraid it will tell me something i'm doing is wrong or im late on doing something.

(and I eat as much different food groups as i can, exercise thrice a week, try as much as i can to limit fats,etc)

i would appreciate your answer asap. :)

*not laughing* Believe me. I am a chronic headache and sometime migrain sufferer as well. About 10yrs ago I discovered that RedBull cures a migraine (for me) and lessens the constant headache, so have been drinking it daily since.

The doctor talking is a neurologist, who sees a lot of headache and migraine patients. She discovered by accident that most of them; young, old, healthy and not, all had very low vitamin D. And that, in a lot of cases, when on vitD their headaches went away or improved vastly.

It is not actually a vitamin (which we get from food), but a very necessary hormone that our body makes under the right conditions. Specifically sunlight. BUT, with the arrival of sunscreen and rise of computers and aircon... no one is getting any. She even thinks the lack is contributing to obesity, as well as a host of other things.

Hope that helps. What I've watched so far doesn't make me feel bad or guilty at all. :)

That really does sound interesting!

I've heard a lot about Vitamin D in the last few months because my friend has just published a medical paper on the use of massive amounts of vitamin D to help combat osteoporosis and also how it can help prevent developmental problems in unborn children.

It's fascinating stuff.

Bookmarked to watch, thanks!!!!
