Wow . . . a Cure for Migraine Disease!
@trobert Health Guide
At least once a week, I receive an email from someone asking my opinion of a Web site or book that promises a "Migraine Cure." When I'm not receiving those emails, I'm getting email from people who claim to have a cure for Migraine. Some of these people claim that they have the cure, but that there's some grand conspiracy by the pharmaceutical industry to hide cures so they can continue making money from their Migraine treatments. What utter nonsense! There's no way knowledge of a cure could be kept from us. If nothing else, there are plenty of journalists who could and would advance their careers by exposing any such conspiracy. A cure would be a huge news story.
The bottom line is that Migraine is a genetic neurological disease for which, at this time, there is no cure. Period. There are some excellent preventive agents that are the next best thing to a cure. For example, I now often go two or three months between Migraines instead of having several a week, and this is due to my preventive regimen.
People who say they have a Migraine "cure" do so for varied reasons:
- They know it's not really a cure, but they think saying "cure" will get people's attention.
- They've developed or know of something that's an extremely effective preventive, so in their minds, that's a "cure."
- They're unscrupulous, unethical cretins out to make money any way they can, and think people who are ill make easy targets.
