For migraine sufferers, there are few things more disheartening than feeling the telltale signs of an approaching migraine attack. While there are a wide range of pharmaceuticals on the market targeted at migraine sufferers, there is also a more natural approach to eliminating the pain and disruption of chronic migraines.
What are Migraines?
Research indicates that migraine is an inherited disorder of the neurological variety, but it can often be exacerbated or triggered by many environmental and physical factors. Deficiency of vitamin D is a known contributor to migraine attack, as are other essential vitamins and minerals. Hormonal imbalances can contribute to or cause migraine, as can food sensitivity, sinus pressure, anxiety or changes in mood. Approximately thirty-six million Americans suffer from migraine headaches, which is about twelve percent of the total population. Estimates indicate up to one in four households in the nation contains at least one member with migraine. According to the World Health Organization, migraine is considered one of the twenty most disabling medical illnesses in the world.
