What can cause migraines?

Migraines are complex neurological disorders that can be influenced by various factors. While the exact cause of migraines is not fully understood, several factors are known to contribute to their development: Genetics: Migraines often run in families, suggesting a genetic component to the disorder. Specific genes related to migraine susceptibility and headache patterns have been identified through research. Neurological Factors: Changes in brain activity and neurotransmitter levels are associated with migraines. Imbalances in neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) can play a role in triggering migraine attacks. Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormones, particularly estrogen, can influence migraine patterns. Many women experience migraines related to their menstrual cycle, such as menstrual migraines, which are often triggered by hormonal shifts. Environmental Factors: Environmental factors such as changes in barometric pressure, strong smells, loud noises, and bright or flickering lights can trigger migraines in some individuals. Neurovascular Theory: This theory suggests that changes in blood flow and blood vessels in the brain can contribute to migraine episodes. Blood vessels may dilate and become inflamed during a migraine attack, leading to pain and other symptoms. Central Sensitization: People with migraines may have a heightened sensitivity to sensory stimuli, known as central sensitization. This increased sensitivity can lead to amplified pain responses and other symptoms during a migraine episode. TRIGGERS - Everyone may have different migraine triggers.  Some people have no identifiable migraine trigger at all.  Here are some of the more common migraine triggers: Weather:  While the exact mechanisms of weather-related migraines are not fully understood, several factors are thought to contribute to this phenomenon:
  • Barometric Pressure: Changes in barometric pressure, which is the pressure exerted by the atmosphere, can influence migraine occurrence. Falling barometric pressure (associated with approaching storms or changes in weather patterns) has been linked to an increased risk of migraines for some people. It's believed that these pressure changes can affect the pressure inside the skull, leading to headaches in susceptible individuals.
  • Temperature Fluctuations: Extreme temperatures, especially heat and humidity, can trigger migraines in some individuals. Exposure to hot and humid conditions can lead to dehydration and increased vasodilation (widening of blood vessels), which are potential migraine triggers.
  • Wind: Strong winds, particularly gusty or turbulent winds, can be a trigger for migraines. Windy conditions may lead to changes in air pressure around the head and face, affecting blood flow and sensory receptors, potentially triggering headaches.
  • Allergens: Weather changes can also affect allergen levels in the environment. For people sensitive to allergens such as pollen, dust, or mold, increased exposure during certain weather conditions can trigger allergic reactions and subsequent migraine episodes.
Strong smells -- even nice ones -- trigger migraines in many people. Why this happens is unclear, but the odors may stimulate the nervous system. The most common culprits are paint, dust, perfume, and certain types of flowers. Bright lights - While sensitivity to light, also known as photophobia, is a common side effect of migraines, bright lights and glare, especially if flickering, can induce migraines as well. Physical over-exertion - Exercise-induced migraine episodes tend to occur more often in association with certain vigorous or strenuous sports, activities or workouts. Dehydration - can contribute to the development of migraines in some individuals. Here's why:
  • Changes in Blood Volume: Dehydration leads to a decrease in blood volume, which can affect blood flow to the brain. Reduced blood flow and changes in blood vessel function are associated with migraine attacks.
  • Electrolyte Imbalance: Dehydration often involves an imbalance of electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium. These electrolytes play crucial roles in nerve function, muscle contraction, and maintaining fluid balance in the body. Imbalances can trigger neurological symptoms, including headaches and migraines.
  • Increased Sensitivity: Dehydration can make the brain more sensitive to various triggers, including changes in environmental conditions (like heat or humidity), stress, and sensory stimuli. This heightened sensitivity can lower the threshold for migraine attacks in susceptible individuals.
  • Vasoconstriction: Dehydration can lead to the constriction of blood vessels in the brain (vasoconstriction). While this is a natural response to conserve water in the body, it can also contribute to headaches and migraines, especially when combined with other triggers.
Stress - may trigger migraines in various way:
  • Neurological Sensitization: Stress can lead to changes in brain chemistry and function, including alterations in neurotransmitter levels and activity. These changes can increase the sensitivity of the brain to various stimuli, including pain signals associated with migraines.
  • Muscle Tension: Stress often causes muscle tension, particularly in the neck, shoulders, and head. This muscle tension can contribute to the development of tension headaches, which may then trigger migraines in susceptible individuals.
  • Hormonal Changes: Stress can influence hormone levels, such as cortisol (the stress hormone) and adrenaline. Fluctuations in hormones, especially in women, have been linked to migraine attacks.
  • Emotional Factors: Stress is closely linked to emotions such as anxiety, frustration, and sadness. Emotional stressors can directly contribute to the onset or worsening of migraines in some people.
  • Lifestyle Factors: When stressed, individuals may engage in behaviors that can trigger migraines, such as poor sleep, irregular eating patterns, increased caffeine or alcohol consumption, and reduced physical activity.
Certain Foods and Skipped Meals:  One of the most common migraine triggers is aged cheese, including blue cheese, brie, cheddar, feta, mozzarella, parmesan, and Swiss. These foods contain tyramine which can cause a migraine. Red wine and some alcoholic drinks also contain tyramine. Cold cuts and processed meat contain both tyramine and nitrates which can also affect many migraine sufferers. Caffeine:  Though caffeine is found in many headache medications, it is actually a cause of rebound headaches though it is difficult for people who are use to consuming large amount of caffeine to withdraw from it, doing so can significantly reduce migraine frequency and intensity. Other Triggers: • dairy products* • chocolate • eggs • citrus fruits • meat** • wheat (bread, pasta, etc.) • nuts and peanuts • tomatoes • onions • corn • apples • bananas * Includes skim or whole cow’s milk, goat’s milk, cheese, yogurt, etc. ** Includes beef, pork, chicken, turkey, fish, etc.  

What lifestyle changes can help?

Making a few minor changes in your lifestyle can make your migraines more bearable. Improving sleep habits is important for everyone, and especially those with headaches. What you eat also has a huge impact on migraines, so dietary changes can be extremely beneficial, too. Avoiding Food Triggers. – See triggers Healthy Diet. One study indicated that a low in fat/ high complex carbohydrate diet may significantly reduce the frequency, severity, and duration of migraine headaches. Eating Regularly. Eating regularly is important to prevent low blood sugar. People with migraines who fast periodically for religious reasons might consider taking preventive medications. Fish Oil. Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fish oil, have anti-inflammatory and nerve protecting actions. These fatty acids can be found in oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, or sardines. They can also be obtained in supplements of specific omega-3 compounds (DHA-EPA). Aerobic Exercise - Exercise relieves stress to put it simply, more specifically, exercise leads to the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain that alleviate pain, both physical and mental, called Endorphin's. Endorphin is the brain's painkiller, and it is 3 times more potent than morphine. Low impact, moderate exercise has been shown to help in the prevention of migraines. Walking, hiking, treadmill or elliptical machines are good choices. Always start with a gentle stretch, incorporating breathing techniques as taught in Yoga or Pilates. Taking a deep breath through the nose releases a gas produced in the sinus cavity that when inhaled into the lungs, significantly enhances your lung's capacity to absorb oxygen. This gas is lethal to bacteria and viruses and is also known to increase oxygen absorption in your lungs from 10-25 percent. The result? You enter a relaxed state which is perfect combined with stretching and will work in your favor in preventing those migraines. Move on to a warm up to get the blood flowing to every part of your body then proceed into your workout. Remember not to do anything too suddenly or vigorously. Behavioral Treatments - Many neurologists who specialize in treating migraine patients recommend behavioral techniques that reduce stress and help patients to identify it. Research indicates between 35 - 50% reduction in migraine and tension-type headaches with these techniques. generally include: * Biofeedback therapy * Cognitive-behavioral therapy * Relaxation techniques Avoiding Oral Contraceptives - Oral contraceptives (OCs) have been associated with worse headaches in 18 - 50% of women and have also been linked to a higher risk for stroke in women with classic migraines (with auras). This is due to the hormonal modulation that these kinds of drugs cause. Why your prescription medication works against you – Many migraine sufferers use either prescription medicines like triptans (i.e. Immitrex, Zomig) or over the counter medications many of which contain caffeine. When these medications are consistently used many times a week they actually cause significantly more migraines to happen, even though they may help the current migraine at hand. Many prescription drug users will find the need to take more of the drug in a day or two because they think the migraine they had returned, when in fact it is a new migraine. THIS IS REFERRED TO AS MEDICATION-OVERUSE HEADACHE (MOH) and this problem is rampant, especially in chronic migraine sufferers. It is very important for migraine sufferers to be aware of their MOH problem in order to stop the vicious cycle of rebound headaches. What effect does PMS have on migraines and their frequency in some women?  As previously mentioned under the contraceptive pills section, the changes in hormonal balance that occurs during various stages of the menstrual cycle can have a large impact on the occurrence of migraines. 18-50% of women report that there is a menstrual/hormonal component to their migraines. A nutritional supplement like MigreLief+M which contains ingredients to help balance hormone and blood sugar fluctuations is a great choice for women experiencing menstrual migraines and/or symptoms of PMS.

What does Magnesium do? *

The benefits of Magnesium are well documented. Studies show that Magnesium deficiency may be linked with migraines. Magnesium helps keep the blood vessels in the brain properly toned and open, prevents the spasm of arteries, stabilizes cell membranes, and prevents platelet aggregation.

What does MigreLief contain?

MigreLief Original (age 12-adult) and Children's MigreLief (age 2-11) contain special, proprietary forms of 3 dietary supplement ingredients — two forms of Magnesium, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), and Puracol™--a proprietary source of the herb Feverfew.  MigreLief+M contains the same 3 ingredients as Original MigreLief PLUS Chasteberry extract , L-Theanine, D-Biotin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride  and Chromium Picolinate.  Fast-acting MigreLief-NOW contains  Aflapin Boswellia, Ceravasc™ Ginger, Puracol™ Feverfew and Magnesium.

How do I wean off MigreLief?

If you have been using MigreLief or feverfew individually for several weeks or more and decide to stop, it is advisable to stop gradually (cut the daily dose you have been taking in half for one week, then the half dose every other day during the second week and then stop.) Though rare, some people will experience an immediate return of their migraines if they stop taking feverfew abruptly. Also some people who have arthritis or muscle pain may experience a return of their joint or muscle pain upon abrupt cessation of feverfew. Additionally a very small percentage of people may feel fatigued if they stop to quickly.

How does MigreLief come packaged?

Each bottle of MigreLief contains 60, easy-to-swallow tablets (one month's supply).

Who should take MigreLief?

Anyone who is consistently experiencing 2 or more difficult migraines a month, can benefit from the specific nutritional support that MigreLief's daily maintenance formulas (Original (age 12-adult) , Children's (age 2-11)  or +M/ (women with hormonal migraines) provide.  Anyone age 2 or older experiencing migraines OR headaches may take fast-acting MigreLief-NOW "as-needed."

Is MigreLief GMO-free?

Yes! MigreLief is GMO-free and contains NO artificial flavors, preservatives, yeast, milk, corn, wheat, gluten or soy. It's Puracol™ brand Feverfew is also GMO-free.

Can I buy these ingredients separately?

Magnesium and riboflavin may be purchased separately however, the Puracol™ Feverfew used in MigreLief can not be purchased separately.

Don’t I get some of these same ingredients in my multi-vitamin?

Multi-vitamins often have lower doses of magnesium and far lower doses of riboflavin than are found in MigreLief and usually don't contain feverfew.

Where can I find this book?

This book is available at many retail book chains nationwide (e.g. Barnes & Noble, Borders), through online book sellers (e.g.,, and at a special discount on this website.

Are there any MigreLief side effects?

Potential side effects though rare can be: 1 - An individual being allergic to any of the ingredients in MigreLief. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients, cease taking the product. 2 - Some individuals may experience transient diarrhea when ingesting magnesium. 3 - Some individuals can experience gastro-intestinal upset when taking dietary supplements. 4 - Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2) can cause urine to become bright yellow. This is normal and harmless. 5 - Though rare, some people can feel achy, tired and experience a headache if they abruptly stop taking feverfew. It is recommended that you stop gradually cutting the dose from one daily to once every other day for a week and then stop.

What studies have been done on MigreLief?

There have been a number of independent, double blind clinical studies done on magnesium, riboflavin and feverfew. In addition, prominent physician experts have had hands-on experience with MigreLief with hundreds of patients. More information on MigreLief can be found in a Time Warner book entitled "What Your Dr. May Not Tell You About Migraines" by Dr. Alexander Mauksop M.D. & Barry Fox, PhD.

What is Puracol™ Feverfew? *

Puracol Feverfew is a proprietary combination of a specific Feverfew extract PLUS a whole leaf feverfew.  This combination assures a broad range of the phytochemicals found in the plant. Feverfew is an herb that has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries.

What does Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) do? *

Riboflavin is involved in energy production in every cell, and studies suggest it can have a dramatic benefit. A deficiency of cellular energy has been observed in some persons with migraines, and Riboflavin can help correct that deficiency.

What do you mean by “Triple Therapy”? *

MigreLief combines 3 dietary ingredients, each of which has been shown to be strongly associated with dietary issues linked to migraine sufferers. With MigreLief, you are more likely to get a dietary supplement that can help you take control of your migraine nutritional status.

What does MigreLief do?

MigreLief is the first dietary supplement that assists in the nutritional status of migraine sufferers. Research shows that migraine frequency and duration can be related to nutritional status, among other factors. MigreLief provides a new, "Triple Therapy™" approach.

What is MigreLief?

MigreLief (formerly Migre Health and MigreLieve) is nutritional, non-drug, dietary supplement that has been used by hundreds of thousands of migraine sufferers and recommended by top headache doctors for over 27 years.

What is the difference between a migraine and a headache?

The difference between a migraine headache and a tension headache is that while a tension headache involves the muscles and fascia of the scalp and neck tightening and causing pain, a migraine involves a large chemical change that affects the entire body. Blood vessels in the brain become wider, serotonin is lowered, and nerves misfire - causing severe pain - along with a host of other symptoms like those mentioned above that usually do not occur in non-migraine headaches.
Headache Migraine
Duration Hours to days 4 to 72 hours
Location Over the entire head Often one-sided but not always
Intensity of Pain Mild to moderate Often Severe
Nature Dull, pressing Pounding, throbbing, increases with activity
Other Symptoms Minimal to none Nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, sound, odors

What is a Migraine?

A migraine headache is a form of vascular (blood vessels) headache. Migraine headache is caused by a combination of vasodilatation (enlargement of blood vessels) and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the blood vessels. During a migraine attack, the temporal artery enlarges. (The temporal artery is an artery that lies on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple.) Enlargement of the temporal artery stretches the nerves that coil around the artery and causes the nerves to release chemicals. The chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery. The increasing enlargement of the artery magnifies the pain. The above results in periodic attacks of headaches on one or both sides of the head. These may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity of the eyes to light (photophobia) with visual disturbance and flashes (aura), increased sensitivity to sound (phonophobia), dizziness, blurred vision, cognitive disturbances, and other symptoms. Some migraines have these symptoms but do not include headache, and migraines may or may not be preceded by an aura.

When is my child old enough to take the original MigreLief product for adults?

For children over the age of 13 or over one hundred pounds in weight, we suggest starting one caplet per day of MigreLief and if well tolerated increase to 2 caplets per day.........If your 2-11 year old child is taking 1 caplet twice a day of childrens formula and has not seen any benefit by day 60, increase the dosing to 2 caplets in the AM and 1 in the PM and confirm that this does not cause diarrhea. If diarrhea does occur due to the extra magnesium, it should resolve in no more than 2-3 days. If it does not then finish the 90 day period taking 1 caplet twice a day of Children's Migrelief If your child easily tolerates the addition of the one extra AM pill, then try adding an extra PM caplet as well and monitor benefits achieved by day 90.  If you notice real improvement in your child, then continue at this daily dose. At this point if your child is taking 2 Childrens AM caplets and 2 PM caplets per day, upon your next order you can switch to Original MigreLief as long as your child can swallow the larger caplet.  

Are there any side-effects that my child might experience taking Children’s Migrelief.

There are no specific side-effects associated with the ingredients in Children’s MigreLief and childhood use. But with that said, both dietary supplements and medicines can cause gastrointestinal upset in susceptible users. Also though the dosage of magnesium in Children’s MigreLief is lowered to reflect the needs of children, in sensitive users magnesium can cause transient diarrhea, which should resolve in 1-3 days. This is why we suggest you start with just one Children’s Migrelief for the first few days and then increase the dosage to two caplets per day.

Can I give my child more than 2 Children’s MigreLief caplets?

If your child is tolerating the 2 caplets per day that are recommended and results are not optimal, you can add a 3rd caplet for children up to 8 years old and even a 4th caplet for children 9 years old and above, as long as you don’t notice any gastrointestinal complaints or diarrhea that lasts for more than 2-3 days. As with all dietary supplements, we suggest that you let you child’s pediatrician know that your child is taking Children’s MigreLief.

If I observe improvement in my child after using Children’s MigreLief for 90 days, what do I do then?

If improvement is observed we suggest continuing at the same dosing for as long as the child is still having some migraines, even if they are less frequent and gentler. If on the other hand the migraines stop completely for a period of at least 3 months, it may be informative to stop the Children’s MigreLief to see if perhaps the child has outgrown his or her migraines and no longer needs the nutritional support that the Children’s MigreLief provides. Children’s MigreLief can be restarted if necessary.

How long will it take for my child to get results using Children’s MigreLief?

We strongly recommend that you wait for 90 days to determine if Children’s MigreLief has helped your child. It takes that long for the ingredients to build up optimal levels in the body.

How do I know if my child’s headaches are migraines?

Migraines tend to be on one side of the head and throb. If there is any kind of visual disturbance or speech dysfunction associated with the headache, it is likely to be a migraine. A diagnosis from a pediatric neurologist would help to confirm a diagnosis of migraines.
