Migraine part I

Wouldn’t you agree, headaches can be extremely painful, even unbearable at times, but did you know that migraines can actually be dangerous? When the onset of migraines with an aura, comes later in life you are 6 X’s  more likely to suffer a stroke and people who suffer from migraines are more susceptible to epilepsy.  I’ve mentioned more than once, that inflammation plays a key role in disease and illness but in the case of migraines there are other factors that are involved as well. Dr Russell Blaylock says recent studies have shown that four major events occur in the brains of people who have migraine headaches:

• Localized inflammation
• Reduced production of energy
• Low ionic magnesium levels
• High levels of glutamate
