Migraines and Dehydration: Jim’s Story

Migraines and Dehydration: Jim’s Story

HidrateSpark helped change my life. I'm drinking five bottles of water daily and I haven't had a migraine in 35 days. That hasn't happened in more than 35 years! — Jim Wolfe

I've normally experienced 10 to 12 migraines a month since I was 17 or 18 years old. I'm not a fan of being dependent on prescription medications, so I've tried just about everything to prevent those headaches.

I'm active and have never been overweight, but about a year and a half ago I decided to try to become more fit. I built an amazing home gym and really caught the fitness bug: I work out 5-6 days a week.

Given the frequency of my workouts, I wondered if I should also be drinking more water. I'm a tech nerd; gadgets work for me. So I did my research and decided the HidrateSpark 3.0 smart water bottle would be the best fit. It had the coolest features and a reasonable price.

I completed the questions in the HidrateSpark app and it registered my recommended daily water intake at 114 ounces. That was my aha! moment. It made me realize that I was drastically low on water intake. Basically, I was constantly dehydrated at some level and had been for my entire adult life.

It's been 35 days since I began the HidrateSpark program. I'm drinking five bottles of water per day and I've had zero migraines or headaches, literally none, in those 35 days. It's truly life changing and it's such a simple solution. And it's a solution that no doctor had ever mentioned to me.

I've recently upgraded to HidrateSpark STEEL and also purchased a bottle for my wife. The STEEL keeps water colder longer. My wife and I enjoy a healthy competition staying hydrated via the app.

I thought the HidrateSpark would remind me — push me — to be healthier. I didn't expect it to help with my migraines. That it does is a pleasant and completely unexpected result. Thank you, HidrateSpark!


Jim Wolfe, a 55-year-old pool and landscape designer, has suffered from migraines his entire adult life. He's tried everything to manage the headaches: prescription drugs, homeopathic cures, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation units, including a Cephaly magnetic device. He's even volunteered to participate in clinical trials for migraine cures. Lucky for Jim, his HidrateSpark smart water bottle delivered an unexpected and amazing solution.
