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

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

MigreLief+M and Menstrual Migraines

In addition to the 3 ingredients in Original MigreLief, drug-free MigreLief+M contains 5 additional ingredients that have been shown to not only balance blood sugar swings and the hormonal fluctuations that lead to menstrual migraines, but to also significantly decrease PMS pre-menstrual and PCOS symptoms.

 

Ingredients: 

Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2, 400 mg/day)*

Puracol Feverfew (100 mg/day)*

Magnesium (citrate/oxide, 360mg/day)*

Chasteberry extract (175 mg/day)

Chromium Picolinate

*Riboflavin, feverfew and magnesium are listed in the American Academy of Neurology’s Guidelines for Migraine Prevention (Detailed Ingredients Description)

 

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.

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.

Does This PMS Make Me Look Fat?

December 19th, 2010

Dieting and exercising – but still can’t lose weight?
Hormonal imbalance and insulin resistance could be the culprits.
Address the real problem and watch the pounds and bodyfat drop off!

Healthcare practitioners often hear women complain that they do exercise and try to watch their diet but their weight loss is very slow or non-existent, and they even gain weight and body fat.

How can this happen?  The answer is like the engine of a car, the body is a complex machine and many systems can malfunction.

If your car is getting poor gas mileage, a mechanic or an auto dealer may tell you to drive slower to get better gas mileage, but if your sparkplugs are fouled or mistimed, you will never see the benefit of improved mileage despite your efforts to drive slower. Knowing these differences can save you a lot of trouble, knowing if you need a jump starter or a new battery, for example.

Similarly, a lack of weight loss or even weight gain after dieting and exercise, can be explained and conquered, once disruptive hormonal imbalances and blood sugar irregularities (insulin resistance) are corrected.

Most women are familiar with the many pounds that some women gain during the time of the month while experiencing PMS. This is an example of how a simple hormonal fluctuation can cause weight gain – without you consuming one extra calorie.

Likewise, many of you have seen the middle age weight gain and body fat increase of many middle-aged women who are approaching menopause. This is yet another example of how hormonal changes can cause significant changes in your weight and body composition, without consuming extra calories (which are normally thought to be the reason for weight gain).

Studies show that 90% of women gain weight between the ages of 35 – 55.  Hormone changes and weight gain are directly related, and balancing your hormones is essential to prevent this weight gain. Weight gain during perimenopause is actually hormonal weight gain, and much of this weight may locate in the abdominal area.

Cortisol is a hormone that we release when we’re under stress. Fat cells contain more cortisol than other cells. Fat cells located deep in the abdominal area that surround our organs contain the most cortisol. Cortisol increases the accumulation of fat in these cells and INSULIN RESISTANCE increases the abdominal accumulation of fat as well CAUSING SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT GAIN AND SUBSTANTIAL HEALTH RISK!

Estrogen, progesterone and even testosterone levels can fluctuate quite significantly a few days before and after menstruation leading to migraines and causing symptoms of PMS and PCOS such as:

PMS Symptoms:

  • Menstrual migraines
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Changes in libido
  • Overeating
  • Cravings, especially for salty or sweet foods
  • Acne
  • Hives
  • Abdominal and pelvic cramps
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches
  • Breast swelling and pain

PCOS Symptoms:

  • Hair loss: similar to male pattern baldness
  • Obesity and inability to lose weight
  • Acne
  • Insulin resistance:  The body does not respond well to insulin, which controls blood sugar levels and can lead to Type II diabetes and abdominal weight gain

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). The testosterone causes much of the weight women gain to be in the abdominal area, which is where men carry much of their excess weight. Thus, it can be seen that the “Terrible -Twosome” of hormonal fluctuations and insulin resistance can wreak havoc on a woman’s over-all health as well as her ability to prevent weight gain and lose weight.

This “Terrible-Twosome” is also directly related to the occurrence of menstrual related migraines.  The naturally occurring compounds that are added to MigreLief+M to balance hormones and reduce insulin resistance will even help women without migraines who:

1 – Suffer from debilitating symptoms of both PMS and PCOS
2 – Are having a difficult time losing weight even after dieting and exercising

Of course, for women who suffer from migraines that occur around their period, MigreLief+M may be the solution they have been searching for.  But the real breakthrough with Migrelief+M is it’s ability to address not only migraines, but also the accompanying symptoms listed above.

To learn how to couple the use of MigreLief+M with dietary and exercise advice and how to supercharge your weight loss efforts, please visit the MigreLief+M product information page.

Knowledge is power.

To your health,
