ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE

 
 (commercially processed to eliminate pyrrolizidine alkaloids which may trigger hepato-toxic and carcinogenic effects) may help to reduce migraine headaches, allergic rhinitis (drippy nose) and asthma, and gastritis.  It contains iso-petasin, oxo-petasin and petasin which induce smooth muscle relaxation esp. in cerebral blood vessel walls.  Petasin may inhibit pro-inflammatory lipoxygenase (LOX) enzyme.  Both petasin and iso-petasin exert anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting leukotriene synthesis. Recommended supplements are butterbur, riboflavin (B2) and ginger. 8/2008 www.lef.org  [One may want to try Butterbur's miniature flower blossoms in a salad, unless one is allergic to the Aster-aceae plants (ragweed or daisies) or have "aura" headaches (a symptom for some cardiovascular patients).] 
Butterbur (petasites hybridus) root is recommended by the 2012 American Academy of Neurology as a migraine prevention. Other suggested treatment options for some patients are riboflavin, feverfew, coenzyme Q 10 and magnesium.
Butterbur (petasites hybridus) root containing petasin and isopetasin may comfort smooth muscles in the cranial blood vessels.  www.purecaps.com
Butterbur for migraines -
Take 50 mg 3x daily for 30 days, then 50 mg 2x daily for 30 days.  Then stop. 
For acute migraines take 100 mg every 3 hours for one day only. 
Use only high quality brands. 
Per2009 Confidential Reports publication www.bottomlinesecrets.com
100 mg CoQ10  taken initially at 1st migraine warning & then with each meal should help.  More effective if supplement is in suspension of rice bran oil or olive oil.  Try butterbur.

Dzugan, Dr Sergey  The Migraine Cure  12/2006 www.lef.org book review - Dzugan advocates taking probiotics + lipid and steroid hormone blood tests, balancing calcium & magnesium (citrate) + hormones (pregnenolone, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, melatonin). Hormones begin with cholesterol, so the lipid panel
(total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides) are obtained.  Pregnenolone is the "grandmother hormone, one from which all the human steroid hormones - including aldosterone, cortisol, cortisone, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, and  testosterone -
are produced. (The term 'steroid hormone' refers to a family of structurally similar bio-chemicals that have the ability to determine sex, reduce inflammation, and regulate growth.)  Adding zinc with Saw palmetto, kava kava, Vitamin B6, probiotics, and/or iron may contribute to regimen.
If you experience migraines after eating tryamine amino acids, delete cheese, citrus fruit, chocolate, or alcohol from diet per English psychiatrist Kenneth McAll in A Guide to Healing the Family Tree  www.marianland.com 
Khalsa MD in Food as Medicine warns us to avoid caffeine, some citrus fruits, aspartame, bacon, hot dogs, luncheon meat, and MSG. www.drdharma.com
Koch, Karen  M  Gift of Nature - Whole Leaf Aloe Vera  published by Total Health Science Press 
Foods that trigger headaches are chocolate, coffee, MSG seasoning, and cheese (contains mold).
February, August, September 2004 Life Extension recommends magnesium, riboflavin, feverfew, CoQ10, butterbur, glucosamine and melatonin.
December 2005 Life Extension shares 3 case studies of migraine cures that incorporated bioidentical hormones. Tri-estrogen and progesterone taken cyclically.  Testosterone gel, pregnenolone, DHEA, 7-Keto DHEA, tribulus terrestris, saw palmetto in AM.  Zinc, magnesium, calcium, melatonin in PM.  All subject to individual needs.

10 mg melatonin at bedtime may help episodic cluster headaches (but NOT chronic cluster headaches).  Danger.  Melatonin may worsen depression or decrease effectiveness of immunosuppressant drugs. 50-100 mg (UPA) Pyrrolizidine-free  butterbur twice daily with food may reduce frequency, intensity and duration of migraines.  Take only as needed due to increased liver enzyme activity and cancer concerns.  Caffeine may help by constricting cerebral vasculature. Fresh or freeze-dried feverfew may be helpful if used short term.  (Feverfew helps to prevent brain blood vessel constriction.) Avoid during pregnancy as it may cause uterine contractions and abortion. 400 mg  Riboflavin (vitamin B12) daily may prevent migraines.  Natural Medicines in Clinical Management Fall 2002 CE issue of Natural Medicines www.naturaldatabase.com

Can I pray for you?'...It totally left and then she began to smile and tears just flooding down her face. This happened in St. Charles Boonslick Medical Center in St. Charles, Missouri...immediately she cried and she says, 'Itís totally gone...Iíve had an excruciating migraine headache,' for I think she said 3 days. She said, 'Nothing works. Nothing gets rid of it.' But (after) she said, 'Itís totally gone.'Ē
