Migraine Quick tips
I always recommend replacing what is deficient before starting medications, herbs or essential oils. All of these can have a place in treating migraines, but I have found that replacing some key nutrients and minerals can reduce the number of migraines and how bad they hurt. What I am talking about is prevention of migraines.
Sleep – There is nothing better for migraine sufferers than getting a full 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Some individuals may require more sleep. Contact me for help with getting better sleep.
Magnesium Glycinate (or any chelated magnesium). This powerful mineral is used in over 300 different enzyme reactions in the human body. According to the experts we are all deficient. You may not see this deficiency in the blood, because only 2% of our magnesium is found in the blood.
Recommendation: Magnesium Glycinate 100mg up to 400mg at bedtime.
Riboflavin (Vitmain B2)
One 1998 study of 80 patients who suffer from migraine with aura or migraine without aura found that 400 mg of Riboflavin worked better at preventing migraines than an inactive placebo pill. After three months, patients in the Riboflavin group experienced fewer migraines and decreased severity of migraines than those in the placebo group.
Recommendation: Riboflavin 400mg take one capsule every morning.
Hormone Balance – Replace the missing hormones. Progesterone is my favorite hormone for patients with migraines. Even those patients that cannot take estrogen can benefit from this hormone therapy. Call me to set up a time to discuss your hormone balance.
One of our most difficult problems to work with is stress. Exercise is my favorite tool for stress along with prayer. Letting go of those frustrations and problems that life throws at you can impact you migraines.
