Woman with a migraine holding her head and wishing for relief.

Migraine Relief

Migraine is one of the most easily treated disorders. It affects about 17% of women and 9% of men. It is highly affected by menstrual cycles and particularly aggravated by the PILL, which I think is dangerous for anyone. You have many options to consider for migraine relief – both prescription and alternative.

There are many possible effective alternative treatments, ALL BETTER AND SAFER THAN ANY DRUG for migraine relief!!

Here are just 12 alternative treatments for migraine:

  1. Temperature biofeedback:

    Those who LEARN to raise the temperature of their index finger to 96 degrees mentally within 5 minutes reduce severity and frequency of migraines by 84%.

  2. Ring of Fire:

    Stimulation daily with the SheLi TENS™ reduces frequency and severity by 75%; almost twice as good as the ”best” drug for prophylaxis, Depakote, which has MANY complications. Indeed, I will not recommend that drug.

  3. Computerized cervical traction:

    Daily for two weeks. Excellent adjunct and reduces or eliminates many types of headache long-term.

  4. Autogenic training:

    Even without biofeedback, autogenic training is tremendously useful.

  5. Food sensitivities:

    Two-thirds of migraineurs reduce frequency markedly by avoiding wheat, corn, eggs, citrus, milk products, peanuts, chocolate, red wine, cheese, pickled herring. After 6 weeks or so, if headaches are markedly improved, add back one of these food groups, except red wine, each week to see which must be permanently avoided.

  6. Dietary and lifestyle changes:

    NO aspartame; no smoking; no pop; no coffee; no MSG.

  7. Biogenics Magnesium Lotion.

    All migraineurs are deficient in magnesium and the body can easily absorb magnesium in lotion form.

  8. Riboflavin.

    Also known as vitamin B2, 400 mg daily is helpful in some patients.

  9. Natural progesterone cream.

    Apply 1 tsp directly to the skin twice daily from 10 to 28th day of your cycle or until your next cycle begins, whichever is earliest.

  10. Get and Do my book 90 DAYS TO STRESS-FREE LIVING.

    Stress reduction is essential for migraineurs—and everyone else! Tryptophan 1000 mg 3 or 4 times daily plus 45 mg of lithium orotate is often helpful.

  11. Taurine

    1000mg Taurine taken three times daily may be helpful.

  12. Take a good multivitamin/mineral supplement.

    Both my Essentials and Youth Formula supplements will provide you with the support you need from a good supplement.

You may find that some of these treatments work better for you than others. Experiment with the options so you can find what provides you with the best migraine relief.
