Marcia Cross isn’t as desperate as she used to be. Though recognizable as Bree Van De Kamp on “Desperate Housewives,” her desperation has come to an end — her migraines have nearly ceased.
Marcia began having migraines when she was in highschool, but was finally diagnosed in college following horrible head pain, blurred vision, tingling fingers and difficulty completing tasks such as remembering phone numbers.
Years later she found out there were prescription medications available to treat migraines, but had already started keeping a food journal to track migraine triggers.
As a result of Marcia’s due diligence to map the foods that fuel a migraine, she is able to level their attacks to only 3 or 4 times a year. Following an elimination diet, Marcia was able to clearly identify the foods that trigger her migraine episodes:
- Red wine
- Cheddar cheese
In addition, changing her lifestyle to watch stress and being willing to sit in a dark room to until pain passes as an abortive measure, has Marcia transformed from a painful journey to one that marks quality of life – without migraines.
Marcia hikes, let’s stress “go” and keeps things in perspective to manage without migraines. Marcia Cross doesn’t sound desperate at all!
