Migraine Treatment

The Woman's Migraine Toolkit

Migraine_cast_200x200 Migraines can be merely annoying or totally debilitating. MigraineCast is meant to offer you information, support, and encouragement.

Whether you have Migraines yourself or know someone who does, these podcasts are for you.

Today's podcast is a special one with Dr. Dawn Marcus, one of the authors of a new book, The Woman's Migraine Toolkit: Managing Your Headaches from Puberty to Menopause.

Migraine affects 18% of women, and all too often, women's Migraines take them away from time with their families, career options, and more. To add insult to injury, pregnant women have even more difficulty because they have fewer treatment options during pregnancy.

WomansMigraineToolkit100 Dr. Marcus and Dr. Bain have done a splendid job with this book, providing women of all ages with a cornucopia of information presented in a wayt that's easy to read and easy to go back to later.

For this podcast, Dr. Marcus joined me in a frank discussion of women and Migraine far beyond discussing the the book.

Migraine_cast_200x200Welcome to MigraineCast the podcast brought to you by Teri Robert and HelpForHeadaches.com..

For quite some time now, the use of the term Migraine "cure" has been a topic of heated discussion, disagreement, and even some heated arguments that ended up in defamatory and libelous comments being slung around online.

Is Migraine disease curable? Is the use of the term Migraine "cure" ever acceptable. That's the topic of this podcast.

Migraines: Yes, We Can!

Migraine_cast_200x200Our new podcast is up and ready for you!

Welcome to MigraineCast the podcast brought to you by MyMigraineConnection.com and the HealthCentral Network.

As I watched the inauguration of President Barack Obama yesterday (and I promise you that this podcast is NOT going to be political), I thought of a slogan he used often during the campaign and during his acceptance speech, "Yes, we can!"

My thoughts about that slogan focused on our country, but only for a few moments; because, as usual, my thoughts quickly moved on to the millions and millions of people in the world living with Migraine disease - 36 million in the United States alone.

Migraine can be a pernicious and debilitating disease. For some of us, it can take over our lives, if we let it. And that's where "Yes, we can!" comes in.

We've learned that Migraine is a genetic neurological disease caused by genetics and overactive neurons in the brain. At this point, there is no cure for the disease. BUT, Migraine specialists and researchers tell me that they can find effective preventive regimens for 95% of Migraineurs. That means that the odds of our controlling this disease are excellent.

Is Stress a Migraine Trigger?

Migraine_cast_200x200This week's podcast is up and ready for you!

Welcome to MigraineCast the weekly podcast brought to you by MyMigraineConnection.com and the HealthCentral Network. This week, we're taking a look the relationship between stress and Migraine disease.

There is some controversy as to whether stress is an actual trigger. The International Headache Society has moved it from their list of triggers to their list of exacerbating factors on the premise that it doesn't by itself trigger Migraines but it does make us more susceptible to our triggers. So, what does it matter if stress is an actual trigger or an exacerbating factor that makes us more susceptible to our triggers?...

PFO - A "Hole in the Heart" Related to Migraine?

Migraine_cast_200x200This week's podcast is up and ready for you!

Welcome to MigraineCast the weekly podcast brought to you by MyMigraineConnection.com and the HealthCentral Network. This week, we're taking a look at the connection between patent foramen ovale (PFO) and Migraine.

It's theorized that a PFO causing unoxygenated blood to be circulated to the brain may trigger Migraines. In 2004, research was published that seemed to confirm this theory. The problem with that research was that the studies asked patients for information about headaches and Migraines that occurred in the past as opposed to gathering information at the time of the episodes. Also, the data for this research was gathered from studies performed to evaluate PFO and stroke. Thus, more conclusive research is needed before the connection between PFO and Migraine can be evaluated and PFO closure considered as a treatment for the prevention of Migraine. This research is underway now...

The Most Frequently Asked Migraine Question

Migraine_cast_200x200This week's podcast is up and ready for you!

Welcome to MigraineCast the weekly podcast brought to you by MyMigraineConnection.com and the HealthCentral Network. This week, I want to address the question that's asked more than any other single question. We hear and read this again and again from people who say, "I've tried every preventive medication out there, but nothing works. Now what?" There is an answer to that one, "It's literally impossible to have tried every preventive option available." There are...
