If this is your first time...

Welcome and thanks for dropping by. Migraine was unpredictable, complicated and out of control for me when I first began reading and researching.

At the time, I had been so thoroughly beaten down by recurring attacks I was afraid to mention the word "migraine" let along think about it apart from when I had an acute attack.

Researching credible sources was the beginning of my remission from chronic migraine. Information gives you a better understanding, confidence and ultimately control over your condition. 

It can be tricky to determine what is credible and reliable versus what isn't.

This website is not a personal journal or a "dear diary" blog. It's me writing about new research, treatments and findings to continually improve my health. I don't outsource my writing or invite guest posts from others. 

Every effort has been made to reference and source any medical or efficiacy claims so that you can always read deeper or check the facts in any article.
