Menstrual Migraines are More Severe, Last Longer and are More Resistant to Treatment

March 12th, 2017

Menstrual Migraine Formula

DON’T LET YOUR MENSTRUAL MIGRAINES BECOME CHRONIC MIGRAINES 

Menstrual migraines are difficult to control.  Approximately 1 in 7 adults have migraines, but women are three times more likely to be affected than men and 60% to 70% report a menstrual relationship to their migraine attacks.  Menstrual related migraine attacks are often more severe, last significantly longer, and are more resistant to treatment than the usual non-menstrual migraine attacks.

Menstrual migraines that occur only monthly can progress into chronic migraines.  Researchers are discovering that migraines beget migraines, the more you have the more you will tend to get.

According to a study published in the medical journal, Cephalalgia:

  • > On average, a menstrual migraine lasted 23.4 hours vs 16.1 hours for non-menstrual migraines.
  • > Menstrual migraines cause more disability and inability to function in daily tasks than non-menstrual migraines
  • > Medications to treat the pain of migraines were 50% less effective when used to treat menstrual migraines.
  • > Even when the pain medication did work, the risk of the menstrual migraine reoccurring was much more likely.

The authors of the study concluded by saying – “Menstrual migraines may require a treatment approach different from that of non-menstrual migraines.”

Other literature indicates only 13.5% of sufferers are pain-free after 2 hours compared to 32.9% of non-menstrual migraine attacks.  This indicates that 86.5% of menstrual migraine sufferers and 67.1% of non-menstrual migraine sufferers do not achieve complete relief from debilitating migraine pain after 2 hours.

The “Terrible Twosome” of Hormonal Fluctuations and Insulin Resistance Can Wreak Havoc on a Woman’s Over-All Health and Cause Symptoms of PMS, PCOS and Menstrual Migraines

Insulin resistance is the body’s inability to respond well to insulin, which controls blood sugar levels and can lead to Type II diabetes, abdominal weight gain and migraines.  High insulin levels due to insulin resistance increase the production of the male hormone, testosterone. High testosterone levels cause symptoms such as body hair growth, acne, irregular periods and weight gain (all of these are PCOS symptoms).

 

There is a Direct Relationship between Hormones and Migraines

Headaches in women, particularly migraines, have been related to changes in the levels of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone before, during and after a woman’s menstrual cycle. Estrogen, progesterone and even testosterone levels can fluctuate significantly a few days before and after menstruation leading to migraines and causing symptoms of PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) and PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) such as:

PMS Symptoms:

  • » Menstrual migraines
  • » Anxiety
  • » Overeating
  • » Breast Swelling
  • » Weight Gain
  • » Bloating
  • » Irritability & Mood Swings|
  • » Abdominal and Pelvic Cramps
  • » Fatigue
  • » Headaches
  • » Changes in Libido
  • » Depression
  • » Insomnia
  • » Acne
  • » Hives

 

PCOS Symptoms:

  • » Hair loss: similar to male pattern baldness
  • » Obesity and inability to lose weight
  • » Acne

MENOPAUSE & MIGRAINES

Migraine headaches can severely affect women undergoing the changes of menopause.  Statistics indicate that migraines in women tend to increase during the approach to menopause and during menopause; however, they tend to decrease or go away after menopause.

Some women who have never had migraines develop them as they enter the period before (pre and peri-menopause) and during menopause.

 

MigreLief Making a Difference

Until MigreLief+M, no one product was available to address both hormonal and blood sugar fluctuation, migraines and other symptoms associated with a woman’s hormones or menstrual cycle.

Proven Track Record – Healthcare Professionals and Consumer/Patients Trust MigreLief

Effective Non-Prescription Option for Migraine Control
As a safe, nutritional approach to managing migraines, MigreLief has been the supplement of choice for chronic migraine sufferers since 1997, many of whom were introduced to MigreLief through their neurologists or other healthcare professionals.

MigreLief was formulated to address the underlying nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that can cause migraines and are common to many migraine sufferers.  As MigreLief’s popularity continues to grow, migraine sufferers are becoming increasingly aware of the need to maintain healthy and normal cerebrovascular tone and function. (“Cerebrovascular” refers to the blood vessels that supply the brain.) MigreLief’s Triple Therapy ingredients (3 mechanisms of action) help you to maintain the already normal cerebrovascular function you have on non-migraine days.  (MigreLief Ingredients)

  • * It works!

Autobiography in 5 Short Chapters

This is great food for thought.
Excerpted from “There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk” by Portia Nelson, an American author, actress, and singer.

Make your own application to the metaphor. It speaks volumes.

Autobiography in Five Short Chapters

Chapter I

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in.

I am lost…  I am helpless.

It isn’t my fault.

It takes me forever to find a way out.

 

Chapter II

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend I don’t see it.  I fall in again.

I can’t believe I am in the same place.

But it isn’t my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

 

Chapter III

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I still fall in … it’s a habit.

My eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

 

Chapter IV

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

 

Chapter V

I walk down another street.

DON’T START THE NEW YEAR WITH A CHAMPAGNE HEADACHE

December 28th, 2011

Champagne is a big part of many to New Year’s Eve celebrations. It can be a pleasure to drink, but it can also cause headaches for some. Headaches after drinking champagne may be caused by dehydration, mineral depletion or even an allergy to the sulfites in champagne. Sulfites are chemicals used as preservatives to inhibit browning and discoloration in foods and beverages during preparation, storage, and distribution. Sulfites have been used in wine making for centuries.

Sulfites are found in certain foods and beverages, and in a variety of medications. The use of sulfites as preservatives in foods and beverages increased dramatically in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Due to cases of severe reactions to sulfites, a ban by the FDA went into effect in August 1986. This ban prohibited use of sulfites in fresh fruits and vegetables. Sulfites continue to be used in potatoes, shrimp, and beer/wine, and are also used in the pharmaceutical industry.

 

TO AVOID HEADACHES AND HANGOVERS

TRY THESE TIPS:

 

STAY HYDRATED:

Drink more water. Alcohol is very dehydrating because it removes water from your cells, Try alternating a glass of water with each glass of champagne or other alcohol. And try to drink a full glass of water before going to bed.

 

TAKE ASPIRIN:

Taking some aspirin can help reduce some symptoms of a hangover such as a headache. Never take aspirin on an empty stomach as that could increase the risk of G.I. distress and nausea.

 

EAT CARBS:

Do not drink on an empty stomach.  Start with a light meal or snack of complex carbohydrates and protein that will help absorb the alcohol.

 

DRINK CAFFEINE:

Drink a few cups of coffee. The caffeine causes your blood vessels to constrict, which can relieve the discomfort of a headache. WARNING: FOR some migraine sufferers, caffeine can be a trigger. 

 

TRY MIGRELIEF:

MigreLief contains Magnesium, Feverfew, and Riboflavin (B-2), Multiple studies have demonstrated that these ingredients can reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches in both adults and children.

Is Taking Hormone Replacement Therapy to Manage Menopausal Symptoms Worth the Risk? What Are Your Other Options?

September 5th, 2011

As women approach menopause, some are not plagued with the well know symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, poor sleep, excitability, depression, poor concentration, fatigue, and some are to the point of distraction.

All of the symptoms are caused, at least in part, by the hormonal changes that are occurring during this phase of a woman’s life.

To deal with these problems many women’s physicians suggest going on hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
It is well known that HRT increases the risk of blood clots, strokes, and various cancers like breast, ovarian and uterine. Therefore, there is little to lose and much to gain by first trying natural alternatives that are supported by clinical evidence, before running the risks associated with HRT.

The natural medicines that seem to work best for many women are:

Black Cohosh 20 mg twice per day
Chaste Tree Extract 400 mg/day
Fermented Soy Foods – i.e. Tempeh, Miso, Natto. ( I am not in favor of soymilk, soy protein, or pill forms of soy isoflavones) *
Vitamin E succinate 800 IU per day
Maca – 2000 mg/day

Best of Health,

 

Curt Hendrix, M.S., C.C.N., C.N.S.

*Read about the possible dangers of consuming non-fermented soy products – Dr. Kaayla Daniel, author of The Whole Soy Story

Menstrual Migraines Hard to Control… Until Now!

January 22nd, 2011

If you think that your menstrual migraines are difficult and hard to control… you’re right!  At least until now!



A study recently published in a well-respected medical journal named Cephalalgia found that menstrual and non-menstrual migraines differ in women who suffer from both kinds.

Non-menstrual migraines are those migraines that do not occur within a few days before or after menstruation.  The menstrual migraines occur either a few days before the start of menstruation or a few days after menstruation has stopped.

The study found that menstrual migraines lasted longer than non-menstrual migraines.  On average, the menstrual migraine lasted 23.4 hours vs 16.1 hours for non-menstrual migraines.

It was also found that menstrual migraines cause more disability and inability to function in daily tasks than non-menstrual migraines.

Medications to treat the pain of migraines were 50% less effective when used to treat menstrual migraines.  Furthermore, even when the pain medication did work, the risk of the menstrual migraine reoccurring was much more likely.

The authors of the study concluded by saying – “Menstrual migraines may require a treatment approach different from that of non-menstrual migraines.”

We agree!  And that is why we created MigreLief+M for the treatment of hormone-related menstrual migraine headaches.  MigreLief+M is the first product specifically formulated for women suffering from hormone-related menstrual migraines as well as women suffering from the symptoms of PMS.
