I don't know what contributes to this but it is strange!

question: any idea what might naturally work as a constrictor/ or like migraine med that i understand keeps the veins from constricting & dilating

In migraine, it's the spasm of blood vessels in the brain ... You want the vessels to stop spasming, and causing this constriction/dilation scenario.
It's all about balance, and stopping vessel spasms... JL's right about mag. I was a migrainer, and haven't had one since I started following Jeff's program for endothelial health.

From memory, its attributed to:
1. Improve Vascular Health
2. Improve bone density / calcium absorption.
3. Reduce the chance of developing Gout (ie crystals in joints) during times of high Uric Acid (without reducing uric acid).
Sharon wrote:Cheer, the research shows that if you spend your first 15 years of life in a Northern zone, your risk of MS is higher. If you move from the North to the South after 15 years of age, your risk is the same as that of someone who has been in the North their entire life. Now if you move from the South to the North (after age 15) your risk is lower. It has something to do with spending your first 15 years of life in the North. Interesting isn't it?
