Migraines headaches have to be one of the worst experiences many women endure. They can make you cancel important meetings, load up on potent pharmaceuticals, and miss out on life.
Luckily we have today as a guest Dr. Alexis Shields, who throws it down about where migraines come from, how to treat them, and also what we still don't know about them.
She explains that there is a dys-regulation of the electrical system of the brain that precipitates a migraine. (Did you know that the vascular theory has been disproven??)
Dr. Shields talks about certain foods and food additives that are triggers. (Did you know that left-overs are more apt to cause a migraine??)
She also talks about the underlying factors, such as hormone imbalance, misalignment and more. (Did you know oversleeping can be a problem??)
She gives specific apps, book and sites she likes, and I'll share a few of those below:
Site: Yoga Glo
Book: It Starts with Food
