I have been reading some of the fascinating posts by Angela Stanton PhD concerning her research in migraine headaches. I regard the substance of her discussions as somewhat like dots on a chart that need to be connected. I learned a great deal about the chemistry involved in migraine. One of her comments that involves […]
Topamax is one of the most dangerous drugs in the prescription market today. Not only is it a diet pill made from sugar derivatives (actually a sugar substitute) but it uses two dangerous methods to achieve what several classes of drugs normally do separately and thus with one medicine it affects and potentially damages two circuitries in the brain.

About 90% of sufferers have moderate or severe pain and 75% have a reduced ability to function during the headache attacks. One third require bed rest during an attack.

One incident involved falling head first out of a moving vehicle. My brother grabbed my legs, but my head hit the pavement several times […]
Migraine is assumed to be a disabling neurovascular disease with various manifestations that affect the vasculature as well as the physiology of the brain. Migraine is categorized either as episodic headache (<15 pain days a month) or chronic (>15 pain days a month). It is also understood that migraine is associated with hyper sensory sensitivities […]

Do Nitrates Have Anything to do with Migraines?A recent article published found that higher levels of nitrates correlate with migraine. This research intrigued me. Many migraineurs I work with in my migraine group on Facebook announce shortly after joining the group that nitrates in their food causes migraines for them. This is very odd because human saliva contains […]
