How To Get Real Relief From Migraine Headaches
  

 

Dear Friend and Fellow Migraine Sufferer:

I discovered a great way to reduce and even prevent my migraines. What's more, I do it without prescription medicines, gimmicks or voodoo science. It took me almost ten years of research and trial and error before I learned how to effectively deal with my migraines and live a fuller life. I'd like to share with you what I learned.

My name is Scott Griffin and I've suffered from migraines for almost twenty years. About ten years ago, they got really bad. I was miserable. Migraines seemed to rule my whole life.

Working with my doctor, I tried several prescription preventive medicines, but they all had unpleasant side effects and only worked so-so. Frustrated, desperate, but not willing to give up I took matters into my own hands. I began to read everything I could about migraines and experiment with a variety of natural supplements.

Over time, I began to understand the real root causes of migraine and how to effectively prevent them, without harsh prescription medicines.

Unfortunately, there is no "cure" for migraines. I still get them sometimes. But now I have 2 or 3 migraines a year instead of several a week. Now, when I do get migraines I can usually get rid of them with ibuprofen or aspirin instead of prescription medications.

I want to share with you what I've learned about migraines and how to beat them. I know it may sound like hype, but I believe this information will change your life.

First, remember you should always consult with your doctor before starting or changing any migraine prevention program.


What Exactly is Migraine?


Most people, even some doctors, don't understand the root causes of migraine. This is why doctors sometimes treat migraine symptoms without treating the root causes.

This isn't complicated. And once you understand why you get migraines, you'll be half way to stopping them. Here's what the latest scientific research tells us about migraine.

Migraine attacks begin in your brain. Migraine sufferers have what I like to call a "migraine brain.' Basically, your brain cells are prone to overstimulation. This over activity actually comes from insufficient energy in your brain cells.

That may sound a little strange. How can your brain cells be too active when they don't have enough energy?

Here's why. Your brain cells communicate with each other with tiny electrical impulses. Regulating this electrical activity requires a lot of energy. The migraine process begins when your brain cells don't have enough energy and get stuck in the "on" position, repeatedly firing electrical impulses until they become completely exhausted.

For me, this discovery was, without a doubt, the most important key to real migraine relief. Because if we can stop this process before it starts, we can stop our migraines dead in their tracks.
 
This "electrical storm" in your brain causes a lot of the pre-migraine or "aura" symptoms many people experience. Such as visual disturbances, sensitivity to light and sound, brain fog, fatigue and mood swings. For example, I get little zig-zags or lightning bolts out of the corner of my eyes. This electrical storm also releases chemicals that cause the blood vessels in your head and neck to become inflamed and spasm. These spasms in turn cause the terrible migraine headaches you and I know all too well.
 
There you have it. Insufficient energy in your brain leads to excessive electrical activity between your brain cells. This in turn causes inflammation in the blood vessels in your head and neck. Stop these two events and you don't have migraine headaches.
 
Congratulations! You are now armed with the knowledge needed to become stronger than your migraines.

How to Cool Down Your "Migraine Thermostat"



Think of your brain as having a "migraine thermostat." It is similar to the thermostat for the heating system in your house. If you push the thermostat up high enough, your heat comes on.

But if you keep the thermostat pushed down, the heat stays off.

It's the same with your migraine brain. If your migraine thermostat gets pushed up, the migraine process I told you about earlier starts. So, we need to keep it pushed down.
 
Simply put, we'll do this by avoiding things that push your migraine thermostat up and add things that push it down.

Migraine Triggers


You may have heard the term "migraine triggers." These are things that push your migraine thermostat up and make it more likely that you will have a migraine headache. Most triggers are foods, but other things like cigarette smoke and even lack of sleep can be migraine triggers. The first step of our two-step plan to reduce the number and severity of your migraines is to avoid these triggers.

Migraine triggers are a personal thing. Yours aren't necessarily the same as mine or someone else's. You may already know some of your triggers. Maybe every time you drink red wine (a common trigger) you get a migraine headache. If so, red wine is probably one of your triggers.

The best way to discover your triggers is to keep a migraine diary. Write down (or type in) the foods and beverages you consume each day and whether or not you had a migraine headache on that day. You can also include other details such as how well you slept the night before, etc. Over time, you should see patterns - certain foods that give you a migraine headache the same day (or sometimes the day after) you eat them.
 
It may take time to discover all of your personal triggers. To begin with, I suggest eliminating or cutting back on some of the most common migraine triggers, or what I call the "Migraine Dirty Dozen."
 
I know - you probably love and regularly consume some of these foods I'm about to list. But are they worth getting a migraine headache? Cut them out and see what a difference it makes. Later, you can slowly reintroduce them one-by-one to see if you can tolerate them or need to get rid of them for good.


The Migraine Dirty Dozen


 

  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) - Avoid this stuff like the plague!  Unfortunately, it is used in a lot of foods, especially pre-packaged, processed foods. It goes by many names: Glutamic acid, glutamate, anything hydrolyzed, any hydrolyzed protein, calcium caseinate, sodium caseinate, yeast extract, torula yeast, yeast food, yeast nutrient, and autolyzed yeast.
  • Tyramines - Found in aged and fermented foods
  • Alcohol
  • Nitrites - Found in deli meats and hot dogs/some sausages
  • High tannin foods - Such as tea and red wine/beer
  • Sulfites - Found in dried fruits and wine
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • Excessive Caffeine
  • Dehydration
  • Cigarette Smoke
  • Strong smells, including perfumes
  • Bright or flashing lights
     

Poor sleep can also push your migraine thermostat up. Try to maintain a regular sleep cycle. Many people experience what are known as weekend migraines when they stay up later than normal on Friday night and sleep in later on Saturday morning. The migraine brain likes a regular schedule. That goes for meal times, too.
 
And last, but definitely not least, stress is a universal migraine trigger. I can't think of anything that is more likely to push your migraine thermostat up.
 
Stress has a corrosive effect on your health in general, but if you have migraines it can be devastating. No matter what else you do, if you don't control your stress level, you are going to have headaches.

Stress reduction is a big topic and I can't cover it here. But there are so many ways to deal with stress - exercise, meditation, mindfulness practice, yoga, spending time in nature, breathing exercises, learning to let things go, etc. Find something that works for you and stick with it.

Lowering Your Migraine Thermostat


The second part of our plan to reduce your migraine headaches involves taking natural supplements that push your migraine thermostat down by encouraging normal, healthy functioning of your brain cells and blood vessels.

There are many natural supplements that are used for migraine prevention. After years of reading through all the scientific research and clinical trials I could find, I discovered four "anti-migraine superstars," and each one is a powerful tool. But when taken together, their positive effects can be astonishing.

I was so pleased with the effect these four safe, natural ingredients had on my migraines that I decided to develop my own formula so I could have all of them in one capsule. That product, Migrastil, is available for sale Migrastil.com or at Amazon.com.

Migrastil's superstar ingredients are:
 
Magnesium: People with migraines often have lower magnesium levels than people who don't and multiple scientific studies have shown it to be an effective preventative. Whole books have been written about stopping migraines with this wonderful mineral. In some emergency rooms, acute migraines are even treated with intravenous magnesium.

Magnesium helps prevent migraines in several ways. You will remember that excessive electrical activity in brain cells is one of the main causes of migraines. Magnesium helps regulate excessive brain activity so that your brain cells function normally. It does this by balancing the calcium in neurons which cause electrical firing. It also helps the mitochondria (cellular power factories) in your neurons to function properly.

Additionally, magnesium relaxes the blood vessels preventing the spasms that mark the beginning of a migraine attack.

If that wasn't enough, this awesome mineral also counteracts stress and relaxes your body. Some people find they sleep better when they increase their magnesium intake. Reduced stress and better sleep are both very helpful in preventing migraines.

Taurine: Taurine is an amino acid often used for stress and anxiety relief. This is because taurine effectively supports normal neurological function. Taurine acts as a brake on excessive electrical impulses in the brain. Think of taurine as a "tune-up" for your brain that keeps all of its cylinders firing properly. This amino acid is the true hero of the Migrastil formula.
 
Feverfew: Feverfew has been used as a folk remedy for migraines for a very long time and recent clinical studies confirm its effectiveness. The feverfew plant contains a substance called parthenolide that acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. This can prevent the spasms in your blood vessels.

Feverfew also inhibits the release of histamines in your body. This is helpful because histamines have been linked to migraine attacks.

And what's more, feverfew also acts like non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen and naproxen sodium to reduce pain.

Thiamine (Vitamin B1): Vitamin B1, also known as the "stress vitamin" for its ability to help the body withstand stress was the first B vitamin discovered. It is a crucial vitamin for energy production in every cell in your body. By helping to make sure that your brain cells are well-fed and have all the energy they need, vitamin B1 helps your neurons maintain their normal balance and prevents the electrical misfiring among brain cells that begins a migraine attack.

Migrastil is safe and gentle, but you should always consult your doctor before taking any natural supplement. Migrastil is not safe for pregnant and/or nursing mothers or people who take prescription blood thinners.

Migrastil works for me. I've tried other natural migraine products with varying degrees of success, but none have been as effective as Migrastil. For me, the effect was almost immediate. Before I had migraine headaches at least weekly. Since I started taking Migrastil, I rarely get them anymore. Not that I miss them.
