Help for Children with Headaches & Other Symptoms of Migraine

June 30th, 2017

Migaine AwarenessAs June and Migraine Awareness Month winds down, let us not forget that children and babies get migraines too!  This disabling disorder significantly impacts the quality of life of both children and parents.  Migraines interfere with all aspects of a child’s life and can lead to increased risk of depression.  Researchers believe there is an increased sensitivity after each successive migraine attack, eventually leading to chronic daily migraine in some individuals.  For this and many other reasons, children’s migraines should not be dismissed and parents should not simply wait for their child to “grow out of them.”

Many migraine treatments and medications are not well tolerated by adults, much less something to which a parent would want to subject their child.  (Press Release)

A GREAT PLACE FOR PARENTS TO START – Drug Free Dietary Supplements Providing Comprehensive Nutritional Support

A great place to start, if your child suffers migraines is with the dietary supplements, Children’s MigreLief (taken daily) and MigreLief-NOW (taken “as-needed”).  These two migraine supplements work well together and can be taken by children age 2 and above to maintain normal brain cerebrovascular tone and function.

Children’s MigreLief is to be taken twice daily.
MigreLief-NOW is to be taken as-needed at the first sign of discomfort.

Note:  The dose of MigreLief-NOW for children age 2-11 is 1/2 the adult stated on the back of the bottle.

MigreLief migraine supplements DO NOT contain aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, Naproxen, caffeine or butterbur.

KIDS, MIGRAINES AND SCHOOL

June 18th, 2017

Kids are beginning to enjoy summer and surely don’t want to think about going back to school, but this is a good time for parents of young migraine sufferers to think about back-to-school.  Parents should be aware that their children are at higher risk for developing headaches and migraines at the beginning of a new school year.  As high as 35% of kids can suffer from some type of reoccurring headache, and up to a quarter of those headaches can be migraines.

Emotional issues, stress, and sleep issues can cause migraines in these children. As the number of attacks increase, depression and sleep disorders can escalate and caffeine consumption can worsen these problems.

Though over the counter medication can be used to try to help deal with the pain, care must be taken to make sure the use of the medications does not exceed one to two times a week. Rebound headaches can occur if use of these drugs is too frequent.

Making sure children are well rested, eating fruits and vegetables regularly, avoiding too much caffeine and staying well hydrated is a great start but often not enough for kids with migraines especially if you don’t know what triggers your child’s migraines.  If your pediatrician does diagnose migraines that are occurring once a week or more, look into Migrelief, a nutritional dietary supplement that can help maintain normal cerebrovascular tone and function.   Although many migraineurs have experienced positive benefits with MigreLief or Children’s MigreLief in under one month, the triple therapy ingredients (magnesium, riboflavin and Puracol™ feverfew can take up to 3 months for maximum benefits and effectiveness so a good time to start your child on MigreLief is now.

MigreLief migraine supplements are recommended by many pediatric neurologists and headache specialists.  It is available in a daily maintenance formula for chronic migraine sufferers and a fast-acting “as-needed” formula for children 2-adult.

The 3 daily maintenance formulas are “Original” – age 12-adult, “Children’s MigreLief” – age 2-11 and MigreLief+M (menstrual migraines).
Fast-acting formula, “MigreLief-NOW” can be taken at the first sign of discomfort.  The dose for children age 2-11 is 1/2 the adult dose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Akeso MigreLief supplements can be purchased on online at MigreLief.com, and many other places online including Amazon or at independent pharmacies.  If you pharmacist doesn’t stock it, be sure to ask for it as they can order it from their normal drug/OTC distributor and usually have it for you within 23-48 hours.

ARE BOTOX INJECTIONS WORTH THE TROUBLE AND EXPENSE FOR PREVENTING CHRONIC MIGRAINE HEADACHES?

May 22nd, 2017

A recent study published in the April 25th issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reviewed the results of 31 published studies on the use of Botox injections to prevent migraine headaches.

The researchers found that the use of botox injections to prevent occasional migraines (episodic migraines defined as less than 15 headache days per month) and chronic daily headaches was of no greater benefit than placebo.

They further reported that for chronic migraines (15 or more migraine or headache days a month) or chronic daily headaches, there was a small to modest benefit that was probably not clinically very significant. In addition, compared to placebo, Botox injections caused:

  • Neck discomfort or pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Paresthesias (a prickly, tingling, electric shock type sensation)
  • Drooping of the upper eyelid
  • Skin tightness or discomfort

The bottom line is that for most people, based upon this analysis of 31 published studies, the expense and effort of going through Botox injections to try to prevent chronic migraine headaches may not lead to satisfactory results.

Children’s Headaches Rarely Linked to Vision Problems – Ophthalmologists Agree

May 10th, 2017

A common assumption is that headaches in children might be related to poor vision. Often times, children who complain of headaches (as well as visual issues) are referred to pediatric ophthalmologists.  It is estimated that 25% of pediatric patients who see an ophthalmologist for headaches meet the diagnostic criteria for migraine. The percentages were the same for male and female patients.

In addition to head pain, during a migraine attack, some children may experience blurred vision, perception of jagged lines, or partial loss of vision. Ophthalmologists should remain cognizant of the prevalence of pediatric migraine and consider it in pediatric patients complaining of migraine symptoms.

Opthalmic migraines much more commonly (but incorrectly) called “ocular migraines” by laypeople are painless, temporary visual disturbances that can affect one or both eyes and may last only 20 – 30 minutes. If the visual disturbance is followed by a throbbing one-sided headache, it is referred to as “migraine with aura” (classic migraine) and the visual disturbance is called an aura rather than an ocular migraine. A migraine without a visual disturbance is called a migraine without aura (common migraine). ocular/opthalmic migraines are believed to have the same causes as migraine headaches.  Unfortunately a visit to the eye doctor may not help much in terms of how to treat or prevent ocular migraines as the vision symptoms that accompany ocular migraines are not related directly to the eyes but rather to the migraine activity in the brain.

Children’s Headaches Rarely Linked to Vision Problems
Regarding headaches… In a study conducted by pediatric ophthalmologists at Albany Medical Center in New York State, researchers reviewed medical records of children under age 18 who were seen at the clinic between 2002 – 2011 and all had received complete eye examinations. The findings showed there was no significant correlation between children’s frequent headaches and a need for vision correction.  “We hope our study will reassure parents that in most cases, their children’s headaches are not related to vision or eye problems…” said Zachary Roth, MD, an ophthalmologist who led the research team.

What to Do if a Migraine Diagnosis is Made
If a diagnosis of migraine is made, before referring out to a pediatric neurologist, ophthalmologists may want to place pediatric patients on a combination of nutritional supplements that many pediatric neurologists recommend to maintain normal cerebrovascular function. These ingredients are:

  1.  High dose Riboflavin (Vit-B2)
  2.  Magnesium
  3.  Feverfew

    All 3 ingredients are listed in the American Academy of Neurology’s Guidelines for Migraine Prophylaxis.

Teen Migraines

September 12th, 2016

Help for Teenagers with Migraines

Migraines are extremely painful and often debilitating for teens and children.  Just like adults, teens can also experience dizziness, vertigo, nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, a lack of energy, disturbed vision and other symptoms.

Teen  migraines are often different than adult migraines. While adult migraines often last several hours or more and settle on one side of the head, in a child or young teen,  a migraine may last for as little as one hour  and the pain is often felt across the front of the forehead or on both temples.

As a result, childhood migraines are often dismissed as sinus headaches.  Some pediatric migraines don’t involve headache pain at all.  Instead, the child or teen may have abdominal pain, vomiting or feelings of vertigo.

The attacks may be shorter, but after the migraine disappears it can cause an ill feeling that can be even worse than the head pain. Of course symptoms can vary from child to child and can also vary from one attack to the next.

No matter how you look at it, migraines are not something we’d want to wish on our worst enemy, let alone our child.

Children & Teens – migraine dilemma

Parents often dismiss headache complaints by kids & teens, or merely address the problem with a painkiller  not knowing their child may be on a path to a lifetime of suffering migraines.  Researchers are discovering the more migraines a person has, the greater the tendency for future migraines. Evidence shows an increased sensitivity after each successive attack, eventually leading to chronic daily migraines in some individuals. It would follow that in order for children to avoid a lifetime of migraines, it is imperative to lower the frequency of attacks as soon as possible.
 

The devastating effects on teens who suffer from migraines

Migraines in teens (as well as adults) can be disabling. They can cause frequently missed school days, a need to miss sports, work and other activities, and according to a University of Colorado at Denver study, teens who suffer from migraine headaches are also more likely to get lower grades and have a lesser chance of even graduating high school or attending college.

The results of the study found that migraines are an important obstacle to long-term academic success with sufferers having trouble attending school and concentrating on those days they are in school.

The teenage years are already a very difficult time in life, and with migraines they can seem impossible. With the natural response during a migraine attack to shut down and withdraw from the world, sufferers feel a sense of abandonment, which is extremely damaging during adolescence.

Surveys have found that almost every migraine sufferer’s life is negatively affected forcing them to avoid activities like:

  • Doing chores around the home
  • Taking part in favorite hobbies
  • Spending time with family and friends
  • Attending school
  • Making future plans
The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the USA published data in the medical journal, Headache – 2009, that proves a link between children suffering from migraine and  emotional disorders.  According to the study, “children suffering from migraines are at risk of developing emotional and behavioral problems such as depression and anxiety”.

A study in 2007 found that teens who suffer from migraines have a higher risk of suicide and also a greater chance of developing mental disorders in addition to the headaches. 21% were found to develop major depression and 19% were found to experience panic attacks.

Migraine triggers in teens 

While migraines can be unpredictable, it’s important to become aware of certain triggers. Sometimes by setting up a regular routine and avoiding known triggers, attacks can be minimized.

Teens, like adults, and sometimes even more so, can be severely affected by stress. Incorporating stress reduction activities like deep breathing and meditation can be helpful in lessening migraine attacks.

Some common migraine triggers include:

  • Hormone changes such as just before the menstrual period begins
  • Skipping meals
  • Not getting enough rest
  • Alcohol
  • Stress
  • Physical activity
  • Extreme heat
  • Certain smells
  • Certain foods, in particular those with additives, preservatives or dyes.
  • Bright lights
  • Weather changes
  • Medications
  • Motion sickness during road trips
  • Changes in routine

Options for teens with chronic migraines-
Conventional Treatment 

Many popular drugs on the market today are not well tolerated by adults much less something to which a parent would want to subject their adolescent or vibrant young. Dry mouth, fatigue, difficulty concentrating are just a few of the potential side-effects.

“Parents should be aware that our medication choices aren’t as good as they should be,” Dr. Jennifer Bickel, a neurologist and headache specialist at  Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics in Kansas City, Missouri, told Genevra Pittman at Reuters Health.

There are not many medications for treating children’s migraines that are without major controversy, especially the class of medication known as Triptans. If you do your own research, you will see in journals where triptans (such as Children’s Imitrex) are being considered or even approved for children by the FDA, but you will find as many or more articles saying that triptans are in no way safe for children. The only medicine deemed “safe” for treating children’s migraines is ibuprofen. Anyone who has suffered a migraine will tell you that ibuprofen doesn’t begin to mitigate the pain, nor will it prevent future migraines.

Topamax (topiramate), a medication to treat children’s migraines prophylactically (preventively) is an anti-convulsant used to control epilepsy and has also been promoted as a weight loss drug. This same drug has been shown in clinical trials to cause a full 27% of child test subjects to lose weight. Other side effects are known to be upper respiratory infection, anorexia, and paresthesia. These were the results of the only major clinical study conducted on topiramate for children. Outside of the general discussion of Topamax’s side effects, one source (http://epilepsy.emedtv.com) cited that side effects such as memory loss or difficulty concentrating make it difficult to tolerate Topamax. Such side effects could be devastating for a school student, especially if the child already suffers from ADHD.

Additionally, if the child is already being treated pharmacologically for ADHD, depression, anxiety, stress, anorexia, or anything requiring medication, adding yet another medication to those already stressing the child’s body is simply unsound at best, and life-threatening at worst. Combining other medications, especially antidepressants, with migraine medications such as those mentioned above can raise serotonin levels too much and result in serotonin syndrome. 

According to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine, “Serotonin syndrome is a potentially life-threatening adverse drug reaction that may occur following therapeutic drug use, or as an inadvertent interaction between drugs.” Even a commonly used over-the-counter cough suppressant ingredient, dextromethorphan, combined with a migraine medication can cause serotonin syndrome.

Prevention is key for children and teens who suffer chronic migraines.

Nutritional Alternative 

Adressing migraines nutritionally is an effective alternative without the harmful side-effects associated with other medications.

Nutritional supplements and herbs such as the patented active ingredients in MigreLief; feverfew, magnesium and riboflavin are known to work through several mechanisms of action including keeping the blood flowing properly in the brain. When the blood is flowing the way it should, there may be less liklihood of sudden spasms and inflammation.  These triple therapy ingredients also help to reestablish and maintain normal cerebrovascular tone and function.

Nutritional deficiencies and imbalances often associated with migraines can lead to dysfunctional brain processes such as:  *Excessive Platelet Aggregation (the clumping together of blood cells) resulting in blood vessel changes and the decrease in the brain’s cellular energy reserves (cells lose energy production ability when the powerhouses of the cells (the mitochondria) become dysfunctional due to nutritional deficiencies).
Migraine Help for TeensA VITAMIN, A MINTERAL AND A PLANT
We understand that as a parent, you want, not only to have your child’s pain relieved, but you also do not want them to consume anything that would further harm them. That’s the beauty of the “Triple Therapy Approach” of MigreLief.  There are three well known ingredients/mechanisms of action listed in the American Academy of Neurology’s Evidence Based Guidelines for Migraine Prevention, working at the cellular level to solve the problem.

  • Magnesium
  • Riboflavin/B-2
  • Feverfew-whole leaf and extract.

There are no negative side-effects associated with the ingredients in MigreLief or Children’s MigreLief  (formulated for ages 2 -11.)  With MigreLief, there also is no concern about drug interaction with most other medications a child might be taking.

Daily Maintenance vs. “As-Needed”

Dream Team for Migraines -Original MigreLief was formulated to be taken daily to maintain normal cerebrovascular function.  But what do you do if a migraine or headache should occurr?

MigreLief-NOW is Akeso Health Sciences fast acting acute formula to be taken at the first sign of discomfort.  The dose for children 2-11 is 1/2 the regular dose.  Recommended dosage for adults and teens is to take  2-4 capsules immediately and 2 more 2 hours later if needed.


Teenagers have a lot going on in their lives and do not need to be handicapped with disabling migraines. By avoiding common triggers, staying well hydrated, and taking a nutritional approach to migraines, young adults have a great chance of getting their life back.

To the Best of Health,

Inspiring stories from parents:

“My daughter has been using Migrelief for 2 years. She used to have migraines at least 6x per month. Since using Migrelief continually for the last 2 years, only 2 migraines total!! Best thing that ever happened for our family is finding Migrelief!”  ~ F.L.
 

“I had migraines as a child and all of my life until I found MigreLief. Now my son age 10 gets them. After 2 months of taking MigreLief, he is finally back in school. MigreLief gave us both back our life!”  ~ C.M.

“My son has suffered from migraines since the age of 7. His migraines have always been complicated causing him to vomit, be sensitive to light and noise, and stay in a dark room until the pain was manageable. His neurologist recommended MigreLief. We are ecstatic. He is able to stay over with friends, play baseball, basketball, and skateboard again.”  ~ H.S.

Children’s Migraines – The Biggest, Baddest Bully

June 9th, 2016

bully and migrainesIn society today, parents have so many things to worry about when it comes to their children.  The behavior of other children is usually high on any parents’ concern list.   The stress caused to a child by a bully is unimaginable and it is difficult to ease their pain, and both emotional and physical stress.  Now imagine helping your child cope with an unseen bully who strikes viciously without warning.  Most parents would risk life and limb to protect their child, but what happens if this vicious bully is not flesh and blood, but an acute medical condition?

Parents and Health Care Professionals Now Have a Safe Option for Children with Migraines
Children's Migraine Relief Help

On the government sponsored anti-bullying website, bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children, which involve a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.    Likewise, migraine is defined as a recurrent throbbing headache that typically affects one side of the head and is often excruciating pain accompanied by nausea or vomiting and disturbed vision. Migraine attacks are known to come on quickly and attack aggressively, usually with no warning.  Migraines can be very frightening and can be hard to get a handle on for anyone, especially children.

Like a bully who terrorizes your child, causes pain and harms their self-esteem, frequent migraines and headache attacks often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, can sabotage your child’s well-being as well. Some people believe bullying is a part of growing up and it provides kids an opportunity to stand up to those who are stronger than them. In the same way, people often dismiss children’s migraines believing they will go away on their own. Unfortunately, migraines often persist long into adulthood for many sufferers as a matter of fact, half of all adults with migraines had their first attack before the age of 12.  Frequent migraines and headaches can have long-term negative consequences as they often hinder your child’s performance at school, damage their self-esteem and lead to depression.

It is almost certain that children who suffer from migraine headaches have the same stress in their lives as children who are terrorized by bullies at school.  When a child is bullied, they experience daily fear, knowing the terror is coming, much like migraine sufferers live with the stress of knowing an onset could arise at any time. Victims of bullying feel trapped, helpless and small. Unable to deal with their problem, they display physical symptoms like stress headaches, stomach-ache, agitation, restlessness, changes in appetite, dizziness, and general aches and pains. Psychological symptoms often include irritability, anxiety, sadness, trouble sleeping, and tiredness in the mornings, loneliness, helplessness, and feeling isolated.

Children with recurrent migraines experience these same symptoms and are very likely to miss school and other activities. Research shows almost 80% of children who suffer from migraines have trouble coping with normal day-to-day routines.  The sense of vulnerability caused by migraines hinders their performance in school and causes frequent emotional changes, such as anxiety and sadness.  Only frequent migraine sufferers know the ultimate sacrifices you have to make in your daily life in order to deal with the pain they bring.  Wondering and worrying about the next migraine attack when you feel helpless affects the entire family and is debilitating to both parents and children.

Help and Hope for Children with Migraines
No parent wants to see their child suffer.  But so often parents feel helpless too and do just that, standby and watch their child suffer a migraine attack.  This is because Children do not have many safe options when it comes to fighting migraines.  Many prescription and OTC medications are difficult for adults to tolerate much-less children.  Many medications also, just don’t work.  So what is a parent to do?

First of fall, never dismiss symptoms of migraine in children.  Preschool children may or may not have head pain and merely look ill with abdominal pain and vomiting. They may become irritable, cry, seek out a darkened room and often sleep an hour after onset. After the age of 5 children often experience migraines similar to adults; pulsating pain on one side of the head, visual disturbances (aura), vertigo, and sensitivity to light, sound and smells.

Team MigreLief – A Powerful Force
Recommended by pediatric neurologists nationwide,  Children’s MigreLief and MigreLief-NOW can make a world of difference and is a great place to start.  Both of these dietary supplements by Akeso Health Sciences contain ingredients known to make a positive difference in children age 2 and older who suffer migraines.  Children’s MigreLief is to be taken twice daily by kids with chronic migraines (multiple migraines per month) to maintain the normal cerebrovascular tone and function they experience on non-migraine days.  MigreLief-NOW is a rescue formula to be taken on an ‘as needed’ basis.    It is important to note that MigreLief-NOW is not meant to replace Children’s MigreLief which must be taken daily by chronic sufferers.  NOW may be kept on hand at all times and used in conjunction with Children’s MigreLief as needed.  Large children or teens 12 and above may take Original MigreLief, Akeso’s adult daily formula.

Migraines and a Mother’s Prayers Answered

May 10th, 2014

migraine treatment for kidsEvery day millions of parents watch helplessly as their child suffers from debilitating migraine attacks.    Approximately 1 out of every 10 school-age children suffer migraines.  Attacks can last from 1 hour to 3 days.

Severe head pain is not the only symptom of migraine in children.  Other symptoms include, nausea/vomiting, anxiety, fatigue, dizziness, depression, sensitivity to light, sound and smell, difficulty concentrating, abdominal pain and sleep disturbance.

When it comes to migraine control, there are not many safe and effective options for children so we love to hear from parents who discover MigreLief and share their success story.   It reinforces our goal to inform as many parents and healthcare practitioners as possible of this safe alternative/option for children two years and older whose lives are disrupted by painful migraines.happy face cropped

The comment below was posted on our Facebook page (April 2014) by a very happy Mom who gave us permission to share the post stating,

“MigreLief has been the answer to my prayers.”

 

Facebook testimonial -

My thanks to MigreLief and the doctor at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia that ‘prescribed’ it for our 9 year old son…along with a small dose antihistamine. It has literally changed his life. He has been taking it for almost a year.  Since age 5 he would get them where he would vomit, cry, and writhe in pain for hours, never knowing when the next one would arrive (he had 4-5 per month) He wasn’t able or was afraid to participate in any of the things that made him happy. He just started his second baseball season with  and the joy in his face is priceless. The greatest thing is that it’s natural. Thanks MigreLief!  ~Stefanie B.

Because 50% of adults who suffer migraines had their first attack before the age of 12, we hope to reach more parents of young migraineurs with our non-prescription safe alternative.  Formulated to address the problem, not just treat the pain, Migrelief is guaranteed to make a difference, whether an adult or child’s migraines are classic, common, or complicated (basilar, hemiplegic, etc.).  For more information, visit MigreLief.com
