Hello, June. In case that you didn’t know, June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month (#MHAM), and its purpose is to raise awareness about the prevalence and severity of these disorders, and to encourage people to seek suitable treatments. 

Migraine is one of the oldest recorded disorders in humans, and its history is actually 7000 years old. It is THE most widespread brain disorder, 3rd most widespread illness in general, and 6th most disabling illness in the world. Every 7th or 8th people on Earth suffers from migraine, which is shocking ONE BILLION people. Yet, it is often under-diagnosed, under-treated, and frequently frowned upon as weakness and whining. From the clearly medical perspective, the cause and the cure are unknown, but the plethora of treatments are available. Well… 

I am not a medical doctor, but I am a psychology PhD, a therapist who specializes in migraine healing and a former migraine sufferer, so I have a lot to say on the subject. One of the most important things is – your mental health is CRUCIAL for the migraine treatment. Whether the cause of the migraine is of psychological nature, or the migraine itself causes psychological turmoil, your mind and your brain are deeply interconnected, and treating the mind can successfully resolve the migraine itself. I’ve seen it and facilitated it numerous times. Therefore, every day of this month I will post useful information, tips and success client stories, to encourage everyone who struggles with migraine or persistent headaches to seek therapy, and to give hope that the freedom is, in fact, available to you.
