Migraine Prevention

As we know migraine headaches are really a debilitating illness.

Why is it an illness?  Because it is so intense that the bearer can’t concentrate on anything else but the pain. It effects the thinking, the reflexes, the mood, the appetite also effects the overall well being and can last for days.

What is the best method for stopping migraines?

The very best and the only working solution of stopping migraine

headaches is prevention!

There is no other known cure.

How to prevent something we don’t even know the cause of?

Migraine can be triggered by many things. What ever we can think of is able to trigger the headache. So the only thing we can do is to use a general approach to the cause. The most important method of that approach goes back to our diet.
[ad#Google Adsense]The body is a very very fine mechanism, with many tiny little parts working in unison ableing us to function. If this balance is upset somehow, the parts aren’t fitting perfectly and the body is starting to act out of the ordinary.
This might sounds to you as a bunch of mumbo-jumbo but it’s the truth. All pharmaceutical products are telling us to fight the pain, (because it is big business) although the pain is the result of the imbalance of conditions.
So the answer should be obvious, right? Than why don’t we fight the cause instead of the pain? Because the pain is easier to sense. We can feel it, we can react to it immediately.
We can’t feel the cause, because it happens in the back ground and we don’t even know until we have the result of that happening.

So if you think about it logically, trying to find the answer, what would you need to do in order to prevent your migraines? I am sure you start with eating right, get more sleep, stop unnecessarily hyping things up, what else, ……….?

You might find the answer, but the answer is not that simple. The reason is because we are all different. Different habits, diets, tolerance, built, different immunism of our body.
There might be a genetic reason, might not. No one knows it for sure and at this stage is only speculation, just like everything else. Chromosome 8 might be the one that acts as a mechanism for the trigger, but what causing chromosome 8 to trigger? Again go back to the basics because the basics never change. What causing it? Diet? Behavior? Stress? Chromosome 8?

Migraine Prevention

We don’t know, but I have a suspicion chromosome 8 isn’t the answer. Just like the whole in the heart theory a few years ago went out the window.
There are however some general prevention methods sufferers use. Most of them are temporary, some don’t do anything at all and there are a few that works longer. Which one to use? The choice is obvious. The one that works longer.

“14th century English logician William of Ockham. Occam’s razor as it is commonly referred to states that “entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity” which in pop culture terms has been interpreted as meaning ‘the simplest solution is most often the best.’ “
