Zero Carb Update: Day 30

My first full month of Zero Carb is behind me. I consumed only pastured meat and water, and I’m still alive to write about it. No breaks in chronic headaches or hormonal migraine attacks yet, but there might be a slight improvement in severity of pain.

As you can see below, my keto rash Prurigo Pigmentosa is lingering, but thankfully no more itching! I wonder if getting out of ketosis while Zero Carb will do the trick, but how? It is still possible I have fat to burn and thus toxins to expel so I’ll stay the course in hopes that it will disappear for good by my second month of Zero Carb.

I discovered a few genetic mutations through 23andMe, one being MTHFR C677T, which has been linked to migraine. The Methyl-Guard I ordered (after reading this article) arrived, so I’m starting slowly and will up titrate each week, if tolerated.

Another piece to the migraine and chronic headache puzzle: I was finally diagnosed with Lyme. My doc is ordering more labs to rule out co-Infections.

It’s funny that going to a Neurofeedback therapist for migraine led me to a Live Blood Analysis, where I observed these strange strings in my blood (spirochetes?), re-peeking my curiosity about Lyme Disease, and if I’ve had it all these years. What a journey, huh?

  1. I am glad you are seeing some mild benefits. Just remember that it took Charlene Andersen about 6 months on just meat and water before she no longer had bad days. I am looking forward to being able to get the genetic testing done too. I hope the supplement for supporting methylation helps.
