Migraine Risks and Prevention


You May Be At Risk

AURAS SUGGEST INCREASE RISK OF BRAIN LESIONS:

A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) suggests that some patients with migraine with and without aura are at increased risk for subclinical lesions in certain brain areas. Brain lesions have been shown to increase risk of stroke, physical limitations and cognitive impairment, including dementia. The results of the study suggest that patients with migraine with aura and a high attack frequency (one or more per month) are at increased risk of lesions. Additionally, women, but not men, with migraine with and without aura are also at increased risk. In both groups the risk increases with increasing attack frequency.

AN INDEPENDENT RISK FOR STROKE:

A seperate study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) demonstrated that migraine may be an independent risk factor for stroke. The magnitude of this risk remained the same for those suffering from migraine with aura and migraine without aura. Women who were users of oral contraceptives have shown that those with a history of migraine have twice the likelihood of developing an ischaemic stroke compared with those without migraine.

MEDICATION OVERUSE HEADACHE

Medication Overuse Headache (MOH) is a frequent headache caused by overuse of medication, particularly those that treat migraine. Although evidence suggests that frequent use of analgesics may not cause MOH in everyone, overuse of medications by migraine sufferers is often found to increase the frequency of attacks. Studies have shown that a number of medications may cause MOH and that only by discontinuing use of such medications can the symptoms of MOH be avoided. These medications include:

  • Triptans
  • Ergotamines
  • Common analgesics such as acetaminophen.
  • Opioids
  • Combination medications such as
    • Butalbital compounds containing aspirin or acetaminophen, butalbital and caffeine.
    • Vicodin
    • Other compounds containing more than one medication.

Naturewell and the ingredients within its proprietary formulation have not been shown to cause MOH and can be used as frequently as necessary to effectively prevent and treat migraine. It is not known whether Naturewell is effective for treating the acute symptoms of MOH. A patient suffering from MOH that continues taking medications that may cause or contribute to MOH may not receive maximum benefit from MigraSpray. In order to obtain the best results it is recommended that the migraine sufferer begin using MigraSpray and gradually decrease their dosages of medications that may contribute to MOH until use of those medications has been discontinued.

Naturewell Proven Effective

DOCTOR STUDY SHOWED THE ELIMINATION OF MIGRAINE IN 90% OF PATIENTS USING Naturewell FOR PREVENTION.

Naturewell was shown to be highly effective in preventing migraine in a study of patients suffering from frequent migraines conducted by Dr. Fred Pescatore, Director of the Centers for Integrative and Complimentary Medicine in New York City and Dallas. The participants in the study used Naturewell each day and approximately 90% had their migraine attacks eliminated as long as they continued with regular daily usage.
