Webinar: Preventing and Managing Migraines Without Chemical Treatment

August 09, 2019|12:00pm

According to the Medical Migraine Association, migraines affect 36 million Americans or approximately 12% of the population. These severe, recurring, and painful headaches can be incapacitating, and the extreme pain may last for hours or even days.

Because migraines can reoccur frequently, there is a risk in overusing pain medications, leading to complications. This 1-hour webinar will provide alternatives to chemical treatments and ways to avoid overuse of medications and the corresponding rebound headaches.

Join this noontime webinar to learn 12 lifestyle changes that can help manage migraines, including smoking cessation, avoiding triggers, improving nutrition, controlling body weight, enhancing sleep, and reducing stress. We will also discuss the surgical interventions available for the non-chemical prevention and cure of migraines. You will walk away with an action plan, resources, and references that will help you manage your migraines medication-free.
