A personal story by Debbie Haskell of Mississauga – the woman whose search for a migraine cure led to the founding of Natural Calm Canada.
Do you know what it’s like to dread going to sleep when the weather is changing, suffering with PMS, and feeling stressed only to know that when you open your eyes the next morning you will have a migraine?
Here comes the zomig at $15.54 per pill. The side effects are deadly: nausea, vomiting, head spins. I would crave salt, junk food, eat, put on weight, feel depressed because I was getting fat and could not help it, all the while knowing that a headache would be back when I opened my eyes the next morning.
I started getting migraines at the age of 12, and by the time was 47, I had 3 to 5 migraines per week.
I tried everything: a wide variety of doctors, beta blockers, acupuncture, chiropractor, massage therapy for almost 20 years, and nothing helped. Never was it questioned if I had a magnesium deficiency.
I found Natural Calm – then only available in the US – on the internet. Natural Calm is a highly absorbable powdered magnesium citrate that dissolves in hot water to drink like a tea.
Magnesium is responsible for over 350 processes in the body. Some symptoms of magnesium deficiency include insomnia, muscle tension, leg cramps, dysmenorrhea, PMS, headaches, irritability, jerky legs, low bone density, stress, high blood pressure, hormone imbalance and much more. I have now taken the natural calm for 3 years, twice a day. I now get a migraine every 4 to 6 weeks.
I now take Natural Calm twice a day and instead of 3 – 5 migraines a week, I get one every 4 to 6 weeks.
Life is great, I have energy, I feel good and it is nice to close my eyes at the end of the day knowing I will feel good the next day.
