The Magnesium Solution for Migraine Headaches

How to Use Magnesium to Prevent and Relieve Migraine & Cluster Headaches Naturally



Magnesium is a key element in maintaining healthy body functioning and one of the few natural substances that has been studied extensively in scientific studies. From professional and personal experience, I have learned how important magnesium can be for preventing and treating vascular disorders, and I have published on magnesium in the Annals of Pharmacotherapy (Feb. 2002).

Migraine and cluster headaches are vascular disorders that magnesium can help. Twenty-five million American adults and children suffer from migraines. I was one of them. My migraines were infrequent, but severe enough to learn that migraines are incapacitating, a quantum beyond tension headaches. Scientific evidence shows that magnesium can help prevent and treat migraine and cluster headaches for millions of people. My own migraines disappeared (except for an occasional painless, visual aura) since I began taking magnesium. Magnesium is far safer, cheaper, and often more effective than many expensive, side-effect prone drugs that doctors readily prescribe to migraine sufferers.

Diagnosing magnesium deficiencies is difficult, and taking effective amounts of magnesium often causes diarrhea. Fortunately, there are ways to identify the 75% of people in Western societies who are magnesium deficient and to use therapeutic amounts of magnesium without problems. I explain all of this and more in my new, expanded, inexpensive, evidence-based, how-to book on magnesium for you and your doctor.

Did You Know?

Mainstream doctors receive almost all of their information about medications from the drug industry: 90,000 sales reps, pervasive advertising, drug company-conducted studies, package inserts and the PDR that are written by the drug industry, and drug industry-underwritten continuing medical education courses. No wonder mainstream doctors' methods are skewed toward prescription drugs.

Alternative medicine has its own problems with accurate information. On March 30, 2002, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) reported: "Many Websites Make False Health Claims: An international sweep of health related websites has uncovered more than a thousand sites that carry misleading information or make false claims."

MedicationSense.com will provide you with accurate, up-to-date, scientifically-sound information that you and your doctors can rely on. Please tell your friends and physicians.
