This is the introduction to an Undoctored Advanced Concept that focuses on the steps you can add to the basic Undoctored Wild, Naked, Unwashed program to obtain added relief from migraine headaches should they persist.
I discuss how to ideally correct ubiquitous magnesium deficiency using our recipe for Magnesium Water, why measuring homocysteine and correcting the associated B-vitamin deficiencies can be crucial, and how addressing nutrients for common mitochondrial deficiencies can all provide further relief from migraine headaches.
We are entering a new age in which the individual has astounding power over health–but don’t count on the doctor or healthcare system to tell you this.
We draw from the health information of the world, collaborate, share experiences, collect data, and show how to apply new health tools to achieve levels of health that you may have thought unattainable. We do all this at a time when conventional healthcare costs have become crippling.
The result: personal health that is SUPERIOR to that obtained through conventional means.

Many people obtain complete relief from their chronic migraine headaches just by engaging in the Undoctored basic Wild-Naked-Unwashed program. In particular, wheat and grain elimination can provide complete relief, or partial relief, from migraine headaches in a lot of people. But there’s an occasional person who does everything right in the basic program, but still may be left with at least some headaches — maybe less frequent, less duration, or less severe; but still have headaches. What can you do in that situation? Well, there are additional steps you can take. This is all detailed in the Undoctored Advanced Concepts for preventing migraine headaches.
Among the strategies we talk about there is using magnesium a little differently. We’re all deficient in magnesium at the start of your program. That’s why we advocate everybody taking magnesium supplement. But magnesium is restored over years. If you start a magnesium supplement on Monday, you’re not restored by Wednesday. It takes years to restore tissue magnesium, including sufficient magnesium to modulate the vasospasm, the vessel spasm that is part of the cause of migraine headaches.
Magnesium Water Recipe
So I urge you to use the magnesium water recipe because that’s the best we have. That simple recipe yields magnesium bicarbonate, that is by far the most absorbable form of magnesium ,and raises magnesium tissue levels faster. Even that’s slow — it’s not as fast as say intravenous magnesium I used to give people in the hospital when they had life-threatening heart rhythms — because that works within minutes — very rapidly; mega dose magnesium within minutes. We can’t do that, of course, at home on your own, so we go to the next best, which is magnesium water — far better than the tablet or capsule forms of magnesium. You build a dose up over time and this alone is a very big advantage.
Homocysteine, MTHFR C677T
Another strategy to consider is to have your homocysteine levels drawn, because the higher your homocysteine the more likely it’s a part of the list of causes of your migraine headaches — especially if you have a gene called MTHFR C677T. That specific gene, that impairs your capacity to absorb folate or folic acid, and B12 to some degree, can amplify your potential for migraine headaches. So we talk about how to address that issue, and how to correct it. Those strategies alone also provide a lot of people with relief from migraine headaches.
There are what I call mitochondrial strategies. It’s clear that many people with migraine headaches have a genetic variant in their mitochondria (the energy producing little components within all your body’s cells). Some people respond very well to nutrients like riboflavin and Coenzyme Q10, because those are both involved in mitochondrial energy generation.
There are some other strategies to consider, but that’s the basic menu of items to consider if you have migraine headaches that persist even though you’ve done all the basic components of the Undoctored Wild-Naked-Unwashed program.
