Those crazy nutrients

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I am vitamin D deficient. My doctor gave me high-dose, 50,000 IU vitamin D pills to take once a week for 15 weeks.

I was researching some of the symptoms and causes of this deficiency, and most of them didn't apply to me. But the one that caught my eye was "headaches and migraines." I get lots of headaches, and I get them for many reasons. But I realized that since I began taking the prescription vitamin D, I haven't had any headaches at all. I've felt much better in that regard. I still am bound to get tension headaches from my neck problems and hormonal headaches, but one less cause is something to celebrate.
