you are assuming a great deal on very little evidence.
Some clusterheads find that foodstuffs are triggers, others can consume them in quantity and never get an attack. Same with alcohol.
No nut ever gave me a headache, f'r instance! No highballs either.
Many clusterheads get attacks at a certain time of year - and now don't tell me there's only copper in the water in spring, or midwinter or something, because many seasonal clusterheads skip years.
BTW madness from water pipes is more usually linked to lead - some say the Roman Empire fell because the romans were getting mad from all the lead in their drinking water.
Many enjoy relief through cold and ice - but there are cluster heads who need heat: hot cloths, head in oven, hair dryer at temple...
Anne, don't think I enjoy shooting down your arguments. The only way clusterheads may be cured, however, is by looking at all the evidence as impartially as possible, and weighing all the factors, even if they are inconvenient.
Thanks for sharing this, and do keep looking.
