MIGRAINE TREATMENT HAS TO INCLUDE LIFESTYLE, NOT JUST PAIN MEDICATION. I have said again and again that the treatments for a migraine have to be body-wide, that the problem is systemic but is manifesting as pain in the head. That is why patients with migraines are at increased risk of things like heart disease and stroke; in this study over twice the risk.
If all we do is medicate a patient and stop the headaches, we have fixed nothing. None of the available drugs for migraine lower the risk of heart disease and stroke, so they are obviously not fixing the real problem.
Bottom line is that we HAVE to make the changes and not rely on medications. Exercise, stress reduction, evaluation and avoidance of environmental toxins, high phytonutrient diet, moving away from diabetes.
