Migraines In Women

Continuing on the same note of my earlier post of 28th November, 2008 (De-mystifying Migraines In Women)….

Any aerobic activity done for a minimum of thrice a week for at least half an hour will tell positively on the texture of your migraines. Yes, you heard me right. I am talking of the frequency and intensity of migraines. It is banal to come across the ‘thrice a week for 30 minutes’ formula, from health articles on the web to the instructor in the gym who aim to pick on your fat. But it has other not so famous but greatly positive side effects, like the one I mentioned. There are 5 ways in which aerobic activities help us reduce our migraine intensity.

De-mystifying Migraines In Women

I was struck by the statistics on migraineurs worldwide published by the WHO. Apparently, 303 million people the world over suffer migraines, out of which women account for 70% of the patients. India alone has 100 million sufferers and the US has 30 million patients. The report went on to add that it is estimated that 20 million migraine attacks happen everyday!!!! Staggering by any scale.

Though a lot of cutting edge research has been done, especially in the last decade to control this beast, scientific reports still grapple with unknowns, and are still clueless on issues such as why or how magnesium release regulates calcium ions in the neurons or why a certain chain of events takes place in the cranium that bring on migraines or even why they wind up.

With so much still in the grey, one wonders when and if help will come from drugs that will be safe to consume in the long run or if there are any strategies out there to shake this neurological disease.

In my book, ‘Migraines for the Informed Woman’, I have attempted to simplify the esoteric jargon of research papers and scientific material on migraines. After more than one decade of trying most therapies, I have come to the conclusion, that some work and others that are not as effective. More importantly, I have come to realise that certain mixes of therapies done simultaneously work wonders.
