Migraine: Myth versus Reality

“There is no condition of such magnitude that is as shrouded in myth, misinformation, and mistreatment as is this condition [Migraine], and there are few conditions which are as disabling during the acute attack.”
-Dr. Joel R. Saper, M.D., F.A.C.P., Director, Michigan Head-Pain & Neurological Institute

How Do Hormones Cause Headaches?

Melanie was having headaches three times per week. After seeing Dr Teixido and Kelley Lester- Garrett RNP, she became aware of diet choices she was making that were causing headaches. After eliminating just a few foods the only headaches left were occurring at the time of her menstrual period. Although happy with her progress, she was frustrated that additional dietary changes did not eliminate her cycle-related headaches which are the most severe. With some preventive medications, these have now been controlled.
