"Com. Well, I'm here with my dear friend, a least Serano at least as a part time nurse, a Dula and a wedding and birth videography. She is married to a worship pastor, and they live in a small town here in North Carolina with their two dogs jazzy in buddy. She is the creator of the toxin free fam- community and has a dream to see as many families as possible have toxin free homes at least welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me Sam, this is so exciting. I am so excited to dive into this topic specifically about headaches. I know that when I met you gosh, how long ago was that four years ago five years ago. I remember just like texting and trying to, you know, hang out and and hit up, and I swear like half of the times he'd be like, oh, I can't like I have a migraine. I have a headache. I just I. Yeah. Yes. Yeah. And so tell me a little more about for people who don't know you what that struggle with headaches has looked like through the years. Absolutely. Well, yeah. For people who. Don't know many people who do they can obviously attest to back that used to have headaches all the time and thinking fhu back through my history. I have this very early memory of in fifth grade. I ended up getting a headache while used to get migraines at that point imagery school. And so the earliest memory that I have of one was we were on our fifth grade filled trip, and we were going to Washington DC, and we were all supposed to have this dinner and dancing party, something that you're so excited for in fifth grade, and I started to feel a headache coming on which led into a migraine by that night full blown migraine. You know, can't be around any sound can't be around any smells have to be in complete darkness. And so I ended up having to miss out on half of that party in my hotel room just sleeping in completely pitch black room. There was a nurse there with us, and she was like here take these two to excedrin migraine as fifth grader just to be able to get the headache to go away. So I could go join the. Party in. So and I don't remember if this was before fifth grade or after fifth grade, but I remember I used had to go get an MRI scan done a CAT skin done vision checks. My mom, even though she never confessed this to me. I know that she was concerned about me may be having brain cancer. Like, it was that severe and how frequent that constant so fast forward a little bit to more high school college era, they had kind of stopped being migraines. But I was still having headaches once a week and there was a season of life where it was like every Thursday. So like a cyclical cycle headache. I always have them every week. So again, I stopped having the migraines. But I was able to manage them instead of with excedrin with Abby profane. But here's the kicker. So I was taking ibuprofen all the time. So the smaller amounts would it work. I was taking up to six IB pro Finn, which is twelve hundred milligrams. So for reference one. Pill is two hundred. I was taking six that is like death to your kidneys it when you're in the hospital. So again, she mentioned on nurse who when you're in the hospital, and you have kidney issues. They don't even give you out of your profile. They won't let you have any of it. And here, I am taking six Ivy, bro. Fins every week sometimes more because the headache might not go away super scary. I was like asking for dialysis and asking for art attack. So that was during like high school college time in anything will why would you even have to take medicine? But like if I didn't take medicine it wouldn't go away. It would just continue and continue in continue. So the faster Arctic medicine it was better off. But I still I remember my husband would say at least just take some medicine Bali, babe. I don't want to because it's so bad perky like it's so bad for my stomach.."
