Recently researchers at Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital completed a study analyzing what percentage of adolescent, menstruating young women experienced “menstrual” or “hormonally” related migraines.
It was found that out of the 891 adolescent girls studied, 50% experienced a headache during their first period upon entering puberty and almost 40% of these adolescents continued to experience migraines just before or just after their periods.
These migraines are brought about by both the hormonal shifts that occur during menstruation as well as changes in blood sugar levels. They are often accompanied by PMS symptoms of bloating, breast pain, irritability, cravings, acne, poor sleep and anxiety, as well.
Correcting these imbalances can reduce or eliminate both migraines and many of the symptoms of PMS.
Our own clinical observations indicate that addressing hormonal shifts without also balancing blood sugar levels leads to less comprehensive benefits not only regarding migraine prophylaxis but regarding the aforementioned symptoms associated with PCOS. Therefore we recommend adding to any proposed regimen, ingredients like chromium picolinate, or other insulin-sensitizing ingredients, plus additional dietary fiber to prevent spiking of blood glucose levels that can often lead to the precipitous drops associated with hypoglycemia.
