MIGRAINE PREVENTION IS KEY TO LIFELONG CHILDREN’S MIGRAINE RELIEF! “MigreLief”…Turning Frowns Upside Down!

April 1st, 2013

WHEN TEMPORAY RELIEF IS NOT AN OPTION… PARENTS CHOOSE MIGRELIEF!

THANKS TO MIGRELIEF, A LIFETIME OF PAIN-KILLERS AND ABORTIVE DRUGS IS NOT IN THEIR FUTURE!

 

One of the hardest things for a parent to do is to see their child in pain. Yet every day millions of parents must watch helplessly as their children suffer from debilitating migraine attacks. About one out of every 10 kids, or nearly 8 million children in the United States alone are plagued by what has become the most common acute and recurrent headache pattern experienced by children today.

MIGRAINES BEGET MIGRAINES
DO NOT WAIT!   GIVE YOUR CHILD THE GIFT OF A MIGRAINE FREE FUTURE TODAY 

The under-use of migraine prevention was discussed in a recent NPR.org (Nat’l Public Radio) article stating “Researchers are finding that “migraines beget migraines,” therefore the mandate for all patients is clear:  Reduce the number of migraines.”  Andrew Charles, director of UCLA’s Headache Research and Treatment Program, states it’s not clear why, but the “more migraines a patient gets, the more susceptible they become to having more,” adding that “there seems to be this sort of tipping point where patients go from having episodic headaches to having them really continuously and being in a state of constant sensory sensitivity.”  Charles and other researchers are investigating exactly why and how that “tipping point” occurs.


FOR CHILDREN AGE 2 YEARS OR OLDER – A SAFE NUTRITIONAL OPTION WITH NONE OF THE POTENTIALLY DISRUPTIVE SIDE-EFFECTS OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS

Be it supplement, OTC drug or prescription drug, Children’s MigreLief is the first and only natural preventive therapy developed specifically for children suffering from migraine headaches. These often incapacitating migraine headaches strike suddenly and often with accompanying symptoms of nausea, abdominal pain and vomiting. Until MigreLief, the only option available was the use of side-effect prone prescription medications and OTC drugs with the potential to cause more migraines known as rebound headaches.

KEEP YOUR CHILD OFF THE MERRY-GO-ROUND OF RECURRING HEADACHES

Many chronic migraine sufferers resort to taking prescription medicines such as triptans when a migraine gets out of control. These medicines are abortive drugs used “acutely.”  This means you take them when you already have a migraine you hope to stop.  These drugs do not prevent migraines from occurring.

In fact, not only do they not prevent migraines, the general consensus amongst researchers and clinicians is that on-going regular use of triptan  increase the total number of migraines.   OTC drugs containing caffeine such as Excedrin Migraine (acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine) are also notorious for causing rebound headaches if taken too often.

PREVENTION IS KEY

It is far better to attack migraines at their source as opposed to treating the pain and other symptoms of migraines forever.  Migrelief was formulated to specifically address the underlying nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that often lead to dysfunctional brain processes, including platelet aggregation, changing veins, vasospasms, and the depletion of cellular energy production—all associated with chronic migraine headaches.

The alternative migraine treatments have the potential for significant side-effects in adults and not an option most parents would want to subject a child to.  Children’s MigreLief is the perfect solution…three trusted ingredients, all well known for their safety, efficacy and low side-effects to establish normal vascular function instead of a lifetime on pain killers and abortive drugs.

Magnesium (oxide & citrate) – 180 mg/day
Riboflavin (B-2) – 200 mg/day
Feverfew (Proprietary Puracol Feverfew-whole leaf and extract) – 50 mg/day

(SAFE FOR CHILDREN AGE 2 YEARS AND OLDER.  Contains no yeast, milk, corn, wheat, gluten, soy, sodium, salt, sugar, flavorings, preservatives, or artificial colors)

CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT VS. MIGRELIEF NATURAL SUPPLEMENT

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 have anything that would further harm them. That’s the beauty the “Triple Therapy Approach” of MigreLief.  There are three well known natural prophylactic mechanisms of action working at the cellular level to solve the problem.

There are no specific side-effects associated with the ingredients in Children’s MigreLief and childhood use. Dietary supplements of any kind can cause gastrointestinal upset in susceptible users. With MigreLief, there also is no concern about drug interaction with any other medications a child might be taking.

As of this writing (July 2012), there are no 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), the latest prophylactic medication being touted on the market 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. (Read more about this potentially dangerous drug combination)

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.

MIGRELIEF CAN BE SAFELY COMBINED WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS

None of these side effects are of concern with the nutritional dietary supplement MigreLief.  Formulated to addresses the underlying nutritional deficiencies and imbalances that many migraine sufferers have in common, the MigreLief alternative is far better than treating migraine symptoms and pain for a lifetime.

NIP MIGRAINE DISEASE IN THE BUD – NATURALLY!
TRUSTED “TRIPLE THERAPY” FOR MIGRAINE PREVENTION  – A VITAMIN,  A MINERAL AND A PLANT

Children’s MigreLief is the perfect solution…a vitamin, a mineral and a plant, all well known for their safety, efficacy and low side-effects to establish normal vascular function instead of a lifetime on pain killers and abortive drugs.  All three ingredients are listed in the American Academy of Neurology’s Evidence Based Guidelines for Migraine Prevention

 

MigreLief Original Formula contains a patented “Triple Therapy” approach to reestablishing normal cerebrovascular tone and function that is disrupted in children who have migraines. Nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, and vasospasm can independently and together contribute to migraine occurrence, frequency and intensity. Children’s MigreLief contains the same “Triple Therapy” ingredients as MigreLief but with dosages and pill sizes adjusted to meet the needs of children.

MigreLief’s ingredients; Puracol, a proprietary blend of two unique feverfew sources, magnesium from two sources and high dose, highly absorbable riboflavin (Vitamin B-2) have all independently been shown to be of significant preventive benefit to chronic migraine sufferers.

The Science of MigreLiefTHE SCIENCE OF MIGRELIEF

The multi-patented combination of ingredients in MigreLief was formulated to correct the underlying dysfunctional processes in the brain that often lead to migraines once triggered. MigreLief helps to reestablish and maintain normal cerebrovascular function by addressing the nutritional deficiencies and imbalances often associated with migraines such as:

*Excessive Platelet Aggregation resulting in blood vessel changes.

*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.

 

Migrelief – Triple Therapy Ingredients:

Magnesium
Magnesium is a nutritional supplement with numerous effects that support cerebrovascular tone.

These include:

1) inhibition of platelet aggregation
2) interference with synthesis, release, and action of inflammatory mediators
3) direct alterations of cerebrovascular tone
4) inhibition of vasospasm
5) stabilization of cell membranes.

Some migraine sufferers with poor cerebrovascular tone have been found to have low brain levels of magnesium. Recommended daily dosages of magnesium typically range from 200 to 600 mg to compensate for this deficiency, far above what’s found in most multi-vitamins. Several double blind placebo controlled studies have demonstrated that oral magnesium can reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches in both adults and children.

Riboflavin
Riboflavin (vitamin B-2) is a precursor of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). This coenzyme is an important component of the electron-transport chain. A deficiency of mitrochondrial energy reserves has been observed in some persons exhibiting poor cerebrovascular tone. This defect may theoretically be corrected by a compound such as riboflavin that improves the activity of the electron-transport chain.

MigreLief provides 400mg of Riboflavin, which is significantly higher than most multi-vitamins or B-complex products. Multiple studies have demonstrated that high dose riboflavin can reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines in both adults and children.

Puracol Feverfew
Commonly recommended for its ability to support cerebrovascular tone, feverfew (Tanacetum Parthenium) is rich in compounds known as sesquiterpene lactones. One of the more important of these compounds may be parthenolide, which represents 85% of the sesquiterpene lactone content in feverfew. Some scientific studies indicate that while parthenolide may be important there may very well be other phytochemicals in feverfew that are as of yet unidentified and play a role in its effectiveness.

Some studies of extracts of feverfew containing parthenolide yielded no significant benefits. This led researchers to believe that certain of the unidentified phytochemicals may have been left behind during the extraction process. The ideal solution would be a non-extracted feverfew product that naturally contained high levels of parthenolide and kept all of the other naturally occurring phytochemicals as well. For this reason Puracol Feverfew, AKESO HEALTH SCIENCE’S proprietary non extracted plant source for feverfew with high levels of naturally occurring parthenolide was developed. Puracol Feverfew is just one of the reasons for the superior efficacy of MigreLief, which delivers optimal dosages of parthenolide. Scientific studies have found parthenolide inhibits platelet aggregation and the release of serotonin from platelets and polymorphonuclear leukocyte granules.* It has also been shown to inhibit pro-inflammatory prostaglandin synthesis and the release of arachadonic acid. Each of these phenomena is associated with migraines. European studies have shown the benefits of feverfew on long-term cerebrovasular tone in multiple human studies.

FDA Warning: Anti-Depressants and Migraine Prescription Drugs

July 20th, 2012

FDA Warns on Mixing Antidepressants with Migraine Drugs (First released in 2010)

ROCKVILLE, Md., July 20 — Mixing common migraine drugs with antidepressants can trigger a life-threatening condition called serotonin-syndrome, the FDA has warned.

Serotonin-syndrome is characterized by rapid heart beat, sudden changes in blood pressure, and increased body temperature. Other symptoms include restlessness, hallucinations, loss of coordination, overactive reflexes, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Options successful at preventing the occurrence of migraines would decrease the risk described above in patients taking anti-depressant and experiencing migraines.  

For warning signs of serotonin syndrome and more info on Anti-depressants and migraine drugs click on the link at the end of this article.  For information on your natural migraine control option recommended by doctors, neurologists and pharmacists, go to  www.MigreLief.com

MigreLief is a dietary supplement for the nutritional support of cerebrovascular function in migraine sufferers age 2 years and above.
