New risks for migraine patients
A migraine with aura is like a kaleidoscope of pain -- a searing headache accompanied by blurred vision, blind spots, haze, flashing lights and more.
And even worse than the pain is the fear -- the constant fear of the next attack, which could strike at any time... and in any place.
But the worst part of all isn't the headaches. It's not the vision loss. It's not even the fear.
It's everything else that comes with the package, because migraines can increase the risk of other serious health issues -- including potentially deadly cardiovascular problems.
And now, new research confirms that women who battle migraine with aura have a much higher risk of stroke. It's so much higher, in fact, that it's an even bigger risk factor for both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke than diabetes, obesity, smoking, extreme high blood pressure, very high cholesterol levels and more, according to the study of nearly 28,000 women.
If you're a migraine patient yourself, this might sound pretty bleak. But I have some good news for you today: You don't have to live with the pain... you don't have to suffer the fear... and you certainly don't need to face all these other risks.
You can take on a migraines with aura and win, and you can do it with a completely natural two-step approach.
(You'd be shocked to learn just how few people so-called migraine meds actually work for. Click here to find out.)
The first is nutritional. Since nutritional deficiencies can cause headaches, supplements can often chase them away. Magnesium and/or B vitamins can often help reduce or even eliminate migraines.
The second is in your environment. Most migraines have triggers -- so the key is finding your triggers and then learning to avoid them. Sometimes, they're easy to spot and easy to avoid: alcohol, tobacco and/or caffeine are common culprits.
But other triggers are not obvious at all, and include food additives such as artificial sweeteners and MSG -- both of which are often hidden in food under names most people won't immediately recognize.
A holistic physician can help with an all-natural solution to migraine pain even a migraine with aura, including a dietary approach that could literally change your life for the better. But whatever you do, don't get hooked on painkillers -- they often don't work very well for migraines, and come with plenty of risks of their own.
