Preventing Migraine Headaches

Migraine-Away is a preventative migraine treatment for people who suffer from a high frequency of migraines, have inadequate responsiveness to drugs used to treat migraines, and for those who wish to reduce their migraine occurrences.

Migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches, and menstrual headaches are chronic and progressive disorders that can be, reduced, treated and prevented without the aid of prescription medications.   Unfortunately, migraines are often misdiagnosed, non-specifically treated, and under-recognized. 

Approximately 57% of migraine sufferers will use non-specific treatment, and common pain relievers are often not the right choice for migraine prevention or relief.  Fortunately, migraines and other severe headaches can be prevented with the correct treatment and management.

Why don't we think about migraine prevention sooner, especially if behavioral methods and natural products can be suggested?

Taken twice daily, Migraine-Away was formulated to offer the most effective combination of naturally-occurring preventive ingredients.  The American Headache Society has focused on groups of people who will most benefit (listed below), but Migraine-Away can be used by any headache sufferer who is trying to reduce the frequency and intensity of their headaches.

Avoiding migraine triggers is a key preventative measure.  Migraine triggers include:

  • Stress: emotional and physical (overexertion, excessive activity). 
  • Smells and fumes (e.g. tobacco smoke).
  • Light glare or bright lights.
  • Weather changes.
  • Monthly periods (menstrual headaches), birth control pills, estrogen therapy.
  • Sleeping habits: too much, too little, or interrupted sleep.
  • Eating habits: hunger, fasting, specific foods or beverages, caffeine.
  • Certain medications may cause migraine.

Migraine-Away will most benefit the following:

  • Patients who suffer 2 or more debilitating headaches per month that don't respond readily to medications.
  • Patients who overuse, failure, or contraindications for acute treatment medicines.
  • Patients with special circumstances such as hemiplegic migraines.
  • Patients at greater risk or neurologic complications.
  • Patients who suffer frequent headaches with risk of inducing rebound headaches.
  • Anyone interested in decreasing likelihood of developing a migraine.
  • Patients considering high doses of B2 (Riboflavin), Feverfew, or even Magnesium as prophylaxis to promote a "natural" treatment.

Relaxation training, thermal biofeedback combined with relaxation techniques, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy should be considered for migraine prophylaxis (Grade A recommendation from American Academy Of Neurology).

For the most effective treatment of headaches and migraines, behavioral and educational strategies must be employed.   Awareness of migraine symptoms and early treatment can hasten recovery or prevent headaches altogether.
