Stopping Migraine Headaches

Monday, 22 June 2009 03:00 PM

Question: Can anything stop a migraine headache attack?

Dr. Blaylock's answer:

There is a good remedy based on the central causes of migraines that stop attacks within a couple of minutes. Mix the contents of four capsules of magnesium citrate/malate (from Pure Encapsulation — www.vitacost.com) and one capsule of calcium pyruvate (1,000 milligrams) with four ounces of water and mix well. Drink this and then eat a complex carbohydrate with some type of meat, such as whole grain bread and organic turkey or chicken. Just a half a sandwich will do.

The supplement mixture reduces the vasospasm and vasodilation cycle, blocks excitotoxicity, raises energy levels in the brain and reduces inflammation, which are the causes of the attack. Hypoglycemia is a major trigger for a migraine attack since it increases brain glutamate levels and lowers magnesium levels, which are the reasons for
the attack.
