My 4 Month Leap to Freedom From The Pill Circus

From pills to pain free

We've all been there, haven't we? 

The neck pain that makes you wince, that throb in your head that won't go away, and that heavy pressure feeling that's always there. 

Trying to concentrate on anything else feels almost impossible. Sound anything like your daily struggle? I hear you!

Now, picture trying to navigate this while also raising two young kids and maintaining your full-time job. 

I can almost hear you saying, "Yes, that’s me!" 

Life can feel pretty overwhelming, can't it?

Back then, my freezer was my personal savior– always stocked with ice packs, my temporary lifeline. 

Heating pads, over-the-counter meds, meds prescribed by docs, chiropractors, and massage therapists – they were my team, my arsenal.

In my journey to end my migraines, I did it all. 

I bought every migraine book that hit the shelves. 

I gave every new supplement a whirl. 

If someone said dancing a jig in a tutu with a monkey could help, trust me, I would've googled where to buy a monkey!

But after 10 long years of ‘that’, I finally grasped a vital truth - these things were never going to end my pain. 

While they worked as a quick fix, they weren’t the lifelong solution I NEEDED!

I was using them all wrong, and it was costing me precious time and money.

So, one day, I put the pill bottle down, gave away most of my ice packs, and decided there has to be a better way.

And guess what? I found it.

If you're nodding along to my story, do know you're not alone. 

These tools are amazing when we need them, but the ultimate goal is to learn how NOT to need them!!

What's worked for me could potentially work for you too. 

It's a journey and not a quick temporary fix, but one that leads to more migraine-free days and a life less dictated by pain.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

She supports busy moms living with Migraines. 

Debbie will uncover what is holding them back from migraine freedom so they can live their life pain and symptom free, work productively, spend the time they want with family and friends, and stop missing out on the things they enjoy.

A message from Debbie:
"I was once right where you are now.  100% believing there was NO WAY to end migraines and my only option was to learn how to live with them or find that magic pill that maybe would work for a while.  If anyone told me back then that I could end my pain once and for all, I would have called BS and popped another pill!

Skeptical times 10  was my middle name for sure because when you try it all and everyone tells you they can help you and they don’t.   You stop believing…  you lose HOPE!

I now realize I was approaching my migraines all backward.

I was trying to cover up symptoms versus trying to end my pain."
