So Begins My Quest To Dump Pharmakeia (Spelling?) for Headaches

After listening to Dr. Ted Broer on Hagmann and Hagmann as he spoke about living a more healthful life (now this is a 55-year old guy who honestly looks like he's in his 30s!), I used some coupon code thing to get a Magnesium Malate bottle of capsules from his site Health Masters. But it's going to take more than two magnesium capsules a day to prevent me from getting migraines!

I have been taking Imitrex (or generic sumatriptan) since 2003 when I had to go to the hospital overnight (cost: about $8,000.00!) because I was throwing up blood due to the pain of this migraine headache I had...I had ruptured, but not tore up, the duodenum, the upper section of the small intestines, which would eventually heal unless I kept throwing up. Now my doctor had known for years I got migraines but until this happened he didn't believe me about the severity of the migraines. So now that he believed me he prescribed Zomig, then Imitrex later.

Yes, Imitrex will get rid of the headache after a while. But there have been two issues I have had due to taking Imitrex. One, it has made my tinnitus worse and does make me drowsy and a bit airheaded when I have to take it. Two, I am retiring soon and going on Social Security (but likely not Medicare, which is the dumbest program ever invented...if this is socialized medicine then why do I have to pay for Part B? About $100 per month? For what? I'd rather pay $150 a month for Liberty HealthShare and get real benefits if I need them AND help my fellow Christians at the same time) and since I have not worked my whole life I will not get the monthly amounts that some would (when I was teaching, I did not always pay into SS and MC...don't remember why). So I will get about $500 a month. Since Imitrex is having a negative affect on my cognitive abilities, it is time I started to wean myself off this medication.

After doing research I have found that the magnesium, along with Feverfew and Butterbur, herbs that while they do not cure active headaches do try to prevent headaches from happening (along with a healthier diet of course, meaning more organics, less GMOs and HFCS), I have purchased both...Feverfew is cheap, Butterbur is not (about $35.00 a bottle of 60 capsules...ouch!)

We'll see how this goes, but it can't hurt...

By Golly I Just Might Get More Hits For This Blog Yet, Thanks To Good Gopher

Mike Adams, the so-called Health Ranger at Natural News--an anti-GMO, anti-forced-vaccination, anti-MSM site--has created a new search engine called Good Gopher, which is now in Beta test, where any alternative news/blogger/small business entrepreneur can post his or her website knowing since it isn't an MSM site it won't get top 100 let alone top ten listing on Google, and in fact it is called "the anti-Google"! (Note: now that Google has decided to post my real name along with a google e-mail account I never use, if Good Gopher creates a site like Blogger I just might move this and my Bible Blog to whatever blog site Adams puts up.

And another thing this means is that instead of posting a few articles a year, I will be posting much more often--Good Gopher search results depend a lot on recency of posts...and since I do not and never will have a Facebook account, this is important.

I am NOT trying to sell stuff, promote myself as the world's greatest whatever, or become so out front about all this that the NSA has no choice but to lock me up in Gitmo (but if I have to do something that gets me sent to a FEMA Camp, so be it--I will NOT bow down to the criminal psychopathic elites and the forces of Satan and his Rothschildian minions (guys like Obama, Psycho-illary, the traitor Rand Paul and the rest of Satan's slaves, aka Congress and the Senate)!

But dangnabbit, there are things I must say and write and now I have an incentive to do more of it. So be it!
