Migraine Headaches and Preeclampsia: An Epidemiologic Review
Are we getting the point? To further illustrate my point, preeclampsia risk has been shown to go down with higher intakes of vitamins C and E (again–antioxidants that can help protect the mitochondria). So, patients with migraines that are actually an outward manifestation of oxidative stress/mitochondrial dysfunction, are not ever told how to properly address their condition.
This then leaves these patients at increased risk of preeclampsia and then later for stroke and neurodegenerative disorders. Our current approach to migraines is clearly the wrong approach.
