Migraine is a significant women’s health concern. Each year the lives of millions of women are adversely affected by migraine pain which often times also impacts the lives of their children, families, colleagues and friends. Nearly 20% of women have experienced migraine pain at some point in their lives. Women typically experience their first migraine between 13 and 17 years of age and following menopause most women cease to suffer from migraine pain. But during these valuable years in a woman’s life, migraine causes substantial suffering and disability and gives rise to great economic and personal burden.
Many experts believe that migraines are caused, at least in part, to hormonal fluctuations including the monthly rise and fall of estrogen levels. Sixty percent of women who suffer from migraine headaches report an increase in headache frequency during their menstrual period.
Outside factors may also be to blame. Common migraine triggers include stress; foods such as chocolate, alcohol and citrus fruits; changes in altitude, climate or time zones; bright lights, physical exertion and even air pollution. Avoiding such triggers is generally the first step in preventative care for migraine.
MigraSpray can be used on a daily basis for prevention in order to dramatically reduce or even eliminate migraine headaches (including menstrual migraines) with no risk of side effects or Medication Overuse Headache (MOH).
