Calling all Migraineurs – It’s Time for a Revolution

I’m on a controversial mission, and I need your help. If you have rehabilitated, or are currently rehabilitating, from migraine attacks, headaches, chronic pain or anxiety through Neurofeedback (NFB), please join the Neurofeedback for Migraine group on facebook and share your experience. But… If you have not experienced NFB and you’re curious, join to learn more.…


2015 Austin Paleo f(x)™ Conference, Here I Come!

I’m a very happy Grokette because I’m set to attend the 2015 Austin Paleo f(x)™ Conference. I booked my flight, as well as a hotel within walking distance of the event. I’ll purchase a premier ticket once I pay down some debt (update: got my #pfx15 premier ticket). So why should you attend Paleo f(x)? Check this…


Are we there yet?!

My first Neurofeedback session is right around the corner! I’m thrilled beyond belief…and maybe a tad impatient. I went on holiday with high school chums – the drama-free ones – and we had the most wonderful time together. I stuck to my paleo ways for the most part, but did indulge in some frozen drinks…

On a Mission to Expand My Tribe

I went to a health foods store today and asked the clerk to point me toward their Community Board – typically a cork board, filled with push-pinned business cards, music and yoga lessons, maid services, and items for sale. As I made my way down the aisle of bulk bins it didn’t take me long…


Pain Relief Costs Money, Failed Relief Costs Pride

After finding no relief through Vision Therapy, I decided to turn to Irlen filters to eliminate chronic headaches, eye strain while reading, and other migraine symptoms like photophobia. But after spending $800 on testing, new frames and prescription lenses, I continue to have pain and because of it, lack the desire to read and write.…


Accessing My Hidden Core to End Back Pain

I enjoyed reading “The End of Back Pain: Access Your Hidden Core to Heal Your Body” by Patrick A. Roth, M.D., and I’ve been following Dr. Roth’s “Hidden Core Workout” for over six weeks. The reason I became interested in strengthening my inner brace is because of recurring lower back injuries through weight lifting. After…
