If you are unfortunate enough to know what a migraine feels like, you know it’s debilitating. Often times nothing can make it go away, maybe some rest in dark silent room – maybe some Excedrin or other pain relief that is only treating the symptoms.

According to ICNR (International Center for Nutritional Research), approximately 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches, and of them, 28 million suffer from migraines. To the chronic migraine headache sufferer, headaches can mean more than sheer physical torture –they can disrupt work, destroy weekend plans, and even put a strain on marriage and relationships with family and friends. Statistically more woman get migraines than men. Twenty-five percent of women and 8% of men get migraines sometime in their lifetime.
