The Magnesium Solution for Migraine Headaches
How to Use Magnesium to Prevent and Relieve Migraine & Cluster Headaches Naturally
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.
