Migraine is a disease often characterized by a throbbing headache that concentrates around an eye, which is usually accompanied by an epileptic, involving the half of the head, which is accompanied by attacks.

It is a situation that causes very important losses in the life of the country and the individual. A person with headache also has a 90% higher rate of job deficiency. This is a very important job loss in terms of the country’s economy. People who have migraine attacks 2-3 times a month means they suffer 30-45 days of inefficient and uncomfortable life in a year.


Maybe there are no people who have not suffered headaches. Everyone has experienced this uncomfortable feeling at different levels. The incidence of migraine cases in the community is about two percent. The incidence of females (25%) is three times higher than that of males (8%). When we look at a society, one in every four females, one out of every 12 men is migraine patient. Differences in hormone levels lie beneath these rates.

Cluster headache (% 45) and migraine (% 30) constitute 75% of headache. The presence of migraine complaints in both parents can increase the likelihood of 75% in the next generation, while the presence of migraine complaints in any of the parents increases the likelihood of being seen in the next generation to 40%. The age of commencement of complaints generally coincides with the years when life is the most dynamic, under the age of forty. Fifty-year-old and postmenopausal migraine attacks are very unlikely to start.


Conditions that trigger migraine headaches:

There is not a single factor. Already our bodies are so perfectly created that a single factor is often not enough to cause complaints to arise.

  1. Staying hungry for a long time. This brings a drop in blood sugar level.
  2. Intensive or heavy exercise
  3. Continuous or intense exposure of the mind and consciousness. Increased workload weight. Exposure to sadness. Teeth squeezing as a result of mind and subconscious pollution. Psychological mobbing, psychological trauma, depression, anxiety, extreme excitement.
  4. Some foods can trigger migraines. Feeding with misguided nutrients. Alcoholic beverages (especially ferment based beer, wine, etc.), some nuts, offal or some deli products, citrus fruits, caffeinated beverages, tea, coffee etc.
  5. Deterioration of the sleeping pattern. The miss of sleeping interval at the peak of the melatonin hormone (22: 00-03: 00). Sleeping too late. Sleep during the sleeping hours that affect our physiology negatively (05: 00-07: 00; 16: 00-18: 00). Too little or too much sleep. Reasons like working or learning, night and day sleeping hours and sleep rhythm breakdown.
  6. External factors

Continuous travel (the heaviest is intercontinental travel). Rainy and cloudy weather. Exposure to wind. Constantly over-lighting etc. Pain complaints increase in noise and noisy environments, while it decreases with sleeping or resting in the dark.

  1. Disruptive areas

The presence of infection in the dentist, amalgam filling, multiple implant teeth, surgery scar / scar on the body. Frequent infections (tonsillitis). Decayed tooth, wrong prosthesis, incomplete canal treatment. Temporomandibular joint pathology due to jaw joint problem, operations etc. These and other conditions can trigger premature depolarization of the cell and cause parasite signals to spread in the body. The result can also be triggered by migraines and many other diseases.

  1. Changes in metabolic and hormonal substrates

Drugs used against menopausal complaints, pregnancy, menstruation periods, oral contraceptives, drugs used for sexual intercourse (such as retarders), hormone drugs used for pubescence, etc.

  1. Sensitive personality (easily affected by events and environmental factors)

People with such a structure can be more easily affected by the autonomic nervous system than triggering factors, and as a result migraine attacks begin.

  1. Skeletal problems: neck stiffness, neck calcification (cervical arthrosis), postural disturbance, fibromyalgia, other structural disorders etc.


Classical Approach

The exact reason is unclear. The thought is that (Vasodilatation) after vasoconstriction, which occurs in the brain vessels, and in addition, a decrease in some chemicals (serotonin, endorphin, etc.) that take an active role in brain neurotransmission triggers the pain.

Dr.Ceyhun NURI’s point of view on formation mechanism:

Our biggest misconception is that our body sends us a signal that we try to suppress them by thinking they are illnesses. The most obvious example is pain. If we are alerted to feel uncomfortable by pain, this should lead us to the following question. WHY DID THIS PAIN OCCUR? However, before we go into any research, we prefer pain relief with pain killers. And perhaps with this behavior we are opening the door to faults that will affect our whole life. We suppress the back pain and cause the growth of the herniation, suppress the pain in the joints, accelerating the complete loss of the joint. Migraine is such a clinical case. Migraine is not just a headache. The clinical statement that develops with nausea and vomiting, deterioration of intestinal order, and the involvement of many systems with psychiatric disorders. Headache is an uncomfortable part of this large statement. Let’s look at some of the effective mechanisms for the formation of this disturbing wide clinical pattern:

  1. Thirst is the most important mechanism that triggers headache. You will be able to observe people with headaches carefully so that they do not consume enough water. Even if they claim to have enough water, this time you will see that in the provision of cell equilibrium, they break the bonds with the real (unrefined) salts necessary to provide water acceptance and osmosis balance. Inadequate consumption of water begins to dehydrate the body with the proliferation of actions that increase water excretion (fever, diuretic drugs that increase urinary excretion, some blood pressure medications, alcohol, etc.). In our bodies, HİSTAMİN is one of the substances in water regulation. Our bodies are all set to survive. Our bodies are HİSTAMİN, one of the substances in water regulation. Our bodies are all set to survive. If water intake is reduced, a crisis management situation is created in the body and this value increased liquid is sent to the vital organs (brain, heart, lungs, and kidneys). Some of our non-vital organs are deprived of this reduced water (e.g. our hair, arms, legs, intestines, etc.). Here is what the increase in histamine regulates. As you do not drink water, the histamine release is increasing. Histamine triggers the pain while the veins leading to the brain relax and cause more water to go to the head. The same is true for consumption of alcohol (redness, headache etc. with histamine increase.).

It should be avoided from the negative water that increases water excretion: alcohol, caffeinated drinks, ready-made fruit juices, black tea, coffee etc.)

  1. Degradation of body acid base balance

The body pH should be between 7,35-7,45 without balancing. So our body is mildly alkaline. 1-7 acid, 7-14 alkaline. (You can simply measure this by salivating with litmus paper). Mainly the decrease in the water consumption acidify the body.

Loss of alkalizing substances such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, especially during the intake of gibberish foods, baking, cereals, roasted snacks, processed foods, sugary and overly protein foods, or during the processing of meat, cereals, quickly shifts the body Ph balance towards the acid. The most important parts undertaking task in the adjustment of the acid-base balance in our body are the kidneys. Here, the rich nutrition of acid, the decrease in water consumption, increases the kidney acidity.

Stress, sadness, soul depression also shifts the body Ph. balance towards acid.

The acidification of the tissues mainly in the cell increases inflammation (inflammation). This quickly leads to an increase in histamine, the clinical recurrences above and headache starts. Alkaline water, fruit, vegetables should be richly fed to reduce the kidney acid load. Traditional meat processing methods should be returned (home roasting, bacon and sausages).  The acid load of the food such as the fermented yoghurt, kefir, cream is lower.But most importantly, water and true salt consumption should not be neglected.

3.Allergy and food intolerance increase the attacks of MIGRAIN

If your digestive system does not consume a food, does not digest it, and you consume these foods constantly, your body will perceive them as foreign substances. Continuous response of the immune system increases inflammation. The increase in inflammation increases HISTAMINE level and again HEADACHE comes.

In people who have food incompatibility (food intolerance), the release of melatonin decreases due to serotonin in the brain. And if you continue to feed this wrong YOUR headache will increase.

Oral nutrition is the most important gating of allergen. An increase in headache attacks has been observed in people given wheat, oranges, eggs, tea, beef, corn, mushrooms, peas, coffee, or chocolate in a study conducted with some foods known to be allergenic (A study of 60 patients with known 20-year chronic migraine). No one (85%) had a headache anywhere within 6-7 days, as these foods were removed from the diet of the same patients and replaced with food such as water, vegetables, fruit, and light lamb.

The most common triggers of migraine are: nitrates in processed meat products, soy sauce and cheese with high tiramin content, chocolate rich in phenylethylamine, alcohol, red wine, drinks containing caffeine, vinegar, etc.

  1. Insulin resistance and migraine attack

There is insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome in 50% of the adult population. When you take these people carefully, it seems that almost all of them have frequent hunger, reactive hypoglycemia, blood sugar lowering (hypoglycemia), restlessness, disorientation, drowsiness, dizziness, trembling, cold sweating and HEADACHE. In short, “You’re not yourself when you are hungry “. In a study performed, 73 migraine patients were tested for sugar loading and 56 patients had reactive hypoglycemia (76%). A low glycemic index (slow blood sugar), a poor diet on carbohydrates were given to these patients and migraine attacks rapidly decreased in 55 patients (75%).

  1. Reduction of serotonin and melatonin level

Water decline, inflammation and increased histamine, increased acid burden, increased allergen and nutrient intolerance result in metabolism and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.

At the base of the migraine attack is the dysfunction in the functioning of the autonomic nervous system, which is effective in the functioning of the body: Contraction / expansion occurs in veins.

A.As the findings of the vasoconstriction in the walls of the veins (vasoconstriction) eventually appear (particularly in the brainstem and narrowing of the vessels rich in nerves in the occipital region where the visual center is located), clusters of platelets (blood flakes) begin when the blood circulation decreases. This results in the release of serotonin in the platelets. Serotonin acts in the direction of vasoconstriction of vessels.

The headache complaints start is due to the vasodilatation in veins. With the onset of pain, serotonin and its melatonin levels begin to stretch, causing the vessels to expand. The wall permeability of the veins starts to increase and the liquid inside the vein goes out of the vein. When this fluid outlet irritates the neurons, the pain receptors are stimulated. The patient feels this as pain in the back of the eye, in the jaws, behind the head.

While the body levels of serotonin are high during daytime, the levels of melatonin formed by serotonin are beginning to rise with the start of evening hours. The highest level is reached between 22:00 and 03:00. In patients with migraine, the escape from light and the diminished complaints in the dark are a direct link to the level of melatonin. Again, the level of melatonin in migraine patients is low.

  1. Development of complaints other than headache

Sympathetic nervous system is triggered with migraine attacks

The intestinal peristaltism (movement) slows down or accelerates as the effect of the autonomic nervous system on the intestinal system deteriorates. The cause of migraine attacks accompanied by nausea and vomiting is activation of this sympathetic nervous system. Drugs taken orally in the treatment of migraine with intestinal irregularity cannot pass from the midgut to the intestines, and as a result the treatment remains unanswered.

In fact all physiology is affected. (Pulse, blood pressure, sweating, respiration). In other words, respiration / circulation / digestion / metabolism in the episode loses order and rhythm. For example due to the activation of the sympathetic nervous system, vessels shrink (vasoconstriction), less blood goes to the hands and feet (the hands are frozen) etc.

  1. Effect of hormonal system on migraine attacks

When we look at a society, one in every four females, one out of every 12 men is migraine. Beneath these rates, differences in hormone levels lie.

Decreased estrogen hormone increases migraine attacks (e.g., menstrual bleeding, menopause, etc.). When medication is not taken during oral contraceptive intake, that is, when the estrogen is suddenly stopped, the level of serotonin is also decreased. This causes the headache to be triggered.

With the increase of estrogen in the middle of pregnancy (3-9 months) there is a serious decrease in headache complaints.

  1. Decrease of some elements in the body (Magnesium).

Studies have shown that blood magnesium levels are 25% lower during attacks. If the level of magnesium in the cell is low, and the level of calcium is high, then the cell’s electrical stability is impaired and the cell polarity changes. This causes the nerve cells to become overly stimulant and the serotonin to break down in response to melatonin. As a result, HEADACHE starts.

Menstruation, pregnancy, alcohol consumption, some diuretics used in the treatment of hypertension are conditions reducing the level of magnesium accordingly triggering migraine. In a study conducted, 200 mg of magnesium preparation per day was given to three thousand migraine patients. A reduction in migraine attacks was observed with 85% success.

In addition, the application of magnesium through the vein in the acute treatment of migraine helps to control complaints quickly

Magnesium also affects the regression of migraine attacks positively by improving the functions of serotonin, reducing the intracellular calcium to magnesium ratio and helping the body’s pH shift to alkalinity.

Note: Blood does not reflect the levels in the magnesium level tissues. Even if our blood laboratory tests are normal, the levels of magnesium in tissues may be low. In order to obtain a healthier result, it is necessary to look at the levels in leukocytes.


Migraine Symptoms

The most prominent complaints are: headache, nausea and vomiting, increased sensitivity (against light, sound, smell).

Headache Neurological Symptoms Psychological Indications General Indications
– throbbing, severe


-Single and double sided


-Stroke from nape of the neck, from the temples and around the eyes


– lasts 2-6 hours


– Can last up to

72 hours


-Transient loss of vision


– Flight of black or light dots in front of the eye


– Double vision


– Vertigo


– tinnitus


-Synchrony, Recession


-Difficulty in speaking (difficulty in constructing sentences, hanging while talking)


– Tingling in the body









-Rapid outrage




-Nausea/ Vomiting




– ups and downs in the blood pressure and heart


– Diarrhea / Constipation


– Increase of sensitivity to Odor /  Sound / Light


Signs of gastrointestinal system in children are foreground: nausea, vomiting, cramp pain etc. in the stomach.


  1. Symptoms emerging before migraine

The feeling of fatigue, the beginning of a feeling of exhaustion, uneasiness, unable to concentrate, the formation of sadness, starting to be disturbed by light, sound and odor, pain cramps in the muscles, feeling of thirst and frequent urination, nausea, excessive desire for some foods.

  1. Aura phase ( preview of migraine, dawn of migraine)

It is a symptom that appears about 20-25 minutes before headache.

The appearance of black or light dots in front of the eye, flashing of light, the appearance of colored rings around the light, the appearance of electrical shock-like complaints in the eye, darkening of eyes, unilateral visual loss, blind spot (Patients describe that they experience partial loss of vision before the pain and that the pain begins to improve with the onset of the pain). Numbness in the body. Temporary difficulty in speaking. Tingling, numbness in extremities (arm, leg). It is a period characterized by neurological complaints, such as the appearance of a temporary paralysis-like state. This period is seen in a very small proportion of migraine patients (10-15%).

  1. Real Headache Phase

This period can last up to 72 hours (i.e. 3 days).

Single or double sided throbbing. Pain may occur only around the eyes, between the two eyebrows, across the neck, and commonly in the entire head region. With movement, the severity of pain increases (migraine patients avoid movement and tend to lie down and rest).

Patients describe this period as: I feel like head is going to crack. I have a mind to tear my hair.  My eye aches like it will come out of its place. I feel like I’m sick, I will throw out. I’m restless, I’m cold.

  1. The phase in which the complaints starts to decrease with the regression of headache.

Headache begins to lose its intensity. The head feels tender in the scalp area. Sleeping in this period helps relieve it.

  1. Passing of attack period

The patient feels fatigue and wants to sleep. Attention is completely disintegrated. After sleeping, he feels completely rested.

Migraine Classification

Migraine is evaluated in two different classifications according to the existence of the Aura period:

  1. Basic Migraine 2.Classic Migraine

Basic Migraine (Ordinary Migraine): Migraine cases are the most common type (75%). Vomiting is rare. There is no aura period. Attacks in the form of half a headache are present. This is the most common form for women.

Classic Migraine (Migraine with Aura): It accounts for only a small part of migraine cases (10%). Nausea and vomiting are common. There is aura period. There is usually one-sided headache. It is the most common form during adolescence. Attacks continue for 2-4 hours. There are empty spaces that cannot be seen in the field of vision.

Status Migrainosus: Attacks can take longer than 72 hours. It usually triggers the contraction of muscles around the neck, back and shoulders.

The most common type is simple migraine. But the most different type is the Migraine with Aura

The frequency and duration of migraine attacks

It varies according to the severity of the attack and the duration of the triggering element. Sometimes it can be 1-2 episodes per month, or it can be a week attack. The attack may last for 2-4 hours, but may last for two or three days without interruption.


Other headache complaints that may be confused with migraine

  • While there is no difference in the incidence between the female and the male in other headaches, one in every 3-4 of migraine patients is female.
  • Sinusitis, dental pain, visual impairment, ear pain, brain tumors can also manifest themselves with headache.
  • In the headaches seen in children, it is useful to think about the prevalence of sinusitis and infections.
  • There must also be a differential diagnosis with tension and cluster type headaches.
  • Tension type headache is also a type of stress that is triggered after stress.In these patients involuntary dentures, contractions in the muscles, cramping in the neck area. Ache encircles the head quarter. Crowded environment, work stress, psychological mobbing etc. causes the pain to be triggered. Throughout the day, mind and subconscious accumulation cause intensification of pain, especially towards the night. The pain starts from the neck and spreads to the head region. With the massage or rubbing of the head area of the patient, the pain does not lose its intensity but it increases. While patients look for calm and dim environments in migraine attacks, in the case of tension type headache, the patient cannot stay in the place and wants to go out into the fresh air. Attacks sometimes last a few hours and sometimes a few days. Migraine markers are not seen in this type. When migraine-like treatment is approached as a whole, tension-type headache complaints rapidly disappear (especially after acupuncture, patients’ muscles relax, serotonin levels rise and the patient relaxes).
  • Cluster headache differs slightly from migraine complaints. There is usually a pain that is mainly felt around the eyes. It attracts attention with the incidence in men between the ages of 20-40. It is rare in children. During the attack, there is severe blood on the eyes, an increase in the secretions of the eyes and nose (tears and nose flows), forehead and face sweating. Pitoxis (fall) and edema are seen in the eyelids. Repeated attacks can be seen in one day. Attacks sometimes last for a few minutes (1-10 min) and may last for hours (1-3 h). Attacks can sometimes be unbearable crises for months. Alcohol and cigarettes can cause attacks to start. Another difference from migraine is that migraine attacks are reduced by sleeping while cluster type headache wakes from sleep. You can find the level of HISTAMIN high in the laboratory tests done to the complaints. But you shouldn’t be deceived, it just does not pass through with an antihistamine (allergy medicine). This type of headache should also be treated as a migraine by thinking of four body structures.


DIAGNOSTIC approach of Dr. Ceyhun NURİ

First, the patient must be questioned (anamnesis) and passed through the physical examination without any details being skipped. All risk factors, possible mechanisms of occurrence and treatment barriers should be monitored.

The deficiencies that can prepare the ground for the disease must be observed. For this reason some laboratory tests are absolutely required.

– Whole Blood Count


-Iron, Ferritin, Iron

Bonding Capacity


– Zinc, Zinc binding

its capacity

-Vitamin B12


-Insulin (Hunger), Hunger- blood sugar


-CRP, RF, ES Speed


– Calcium, Phosphorus


-Alkaline Phosphatase


– Liver enzymes


-Total protein, albumin




– microscopic inspection of stool


-PTH, vitamin D


-Hand-wrist graphy


-Bone densitometry


-IgA, IgG, IgM


-Thyroid function tests


– Thyroid antibodies (TG, Anti Tg, Anti TPO)


— Autoantibodies (ANA, dsDNA, AMA, ASMA, LKM 1)




– Cranial MR


– Servical MR


In addition to western medical diagnosis methods, some diagnostic methods should be applied within the understanding of eastern medicine.

  • It must be determined whether there is a malnourishment that is unfavorable.
  • Acupuncture diagnostic criteria should be looked at (diagnosis by looking at the navel in the corpus, scanning of the points with devices such as ear microsystems, support of diagnosis by looking at the tongue, detection of blockages by controlling energy meridians,
  • In the osteopathic approach, posture will be examined and other infrastructural problems will be sought.


Classical Treatment Approach


Expectation from treatment: Now that we cannot heal the disease, at least we try to maintain normal daily life by repressing the symptoms (symptoms) with painkillers and similar medicines. Sometimes these approaches paralyze a number of muscles to seek solutions (Botulinum Toxin – BOTOX).

Drugs used for this purpose

• Sumatriptan


• Analgesics



• Antiemetic

• Ergotamine Tartrate


• Dihydroergotamine


• Neuroleptics

• Opioids


NOTE: The whole treatment approach is based on the pain and the suppression of the physiological processes of the body.

Dr. Ceyhun NURİ’s Approach to the Treatment:


  • The first rule is that the body reaction will not be suppressed
  • Detailed inquiry (physical history) and physical inspection should be performed before proceeding to treat the disease without any skipping further details.
  • If the factor that triggers the headache is based on the mechanical problem in the head, neck region (cervical spine, spinal cord, fibromyalgia, temporamandibular joint dislocation, etc.), this condition must be resolved before treatment of other causes (manual therapy, posture regulation, dry needling, cupping, local ozone application, etc.)
  • In order for the treatment to be successful, all the disruptive areas that impede the solution must be treated (scar, surgical tracks, tonsillitis, amalgam fill etc.). Disruptive areas should be identified and quickly stabilized (amalgam fill will be removed, scars will be stabilized via fluid injection and acupuncture, etc.)
  • When treatment planning is done, it is necessary to show the treatment approach considering the four body (physical, emotional, subconscious, and psychological) structures. If mind and subconscious of these patients will continue to remain as an area of constantly experiencing sad and psychological devastation, you cannot achieve success fully in the treatment even if you provide temporary reductions in complaints. What we need to do is re-programming the mind and subconscious to increase their resilience in the face of events, and clearing the subconscious pollution. Treatment success should be enhanced by strengthening the spiritual body. For this purpose, cognitive and behavioral therapy will be applied.
  • The blood circulation in the head region is seriously affected negatively because of vessel narrowing and enlargement, especially due to autonomic nervous system dysfunction. At the point of attenuation this situation, the leech/cupping applications on head area will cause the complaints to decline rapidly.
  • Acupuncture quickly raises low serotonin levels, which play an important role in pain formation, to regress the complaints and to complete the inflammatory process. Acupuncture promotes migraine symptoms by raising endorphin levels, which are considered to be a pain killer 50 times more potent than morphine.
  • Sleep will be regulated to increase the level of melatonin (see the Sleep Disorder section for details).
  • Nutrition will be corrected (bowel and liver regeneration (repair) and detoxification (cleansing) will be provided.
  • Insulin resistance must be treated.
  • Magnetic field application should reduce neuronal irritation by rebalancing cell polarity and stability that has been impaired
  • By carefully evaluating all details taking part in the formation of the patient’s condition and complaints, personalized herbal prescriptions should be arranged.
  • No method alone can be successful. However, the patient will be healed on the basis of a common synthesis after evaluation by the physician who understands the migraine background.
  1. Ceyhun NURI’S ADVICES:
  • First of all, let me give you the following information: If you have had a headache complaint in the last 3 months, if you have a feeling of nausea, vomiting and light discomfort with the pain and 2-3 complaints together, you are probably a migraine patient above 90%.
  • Weight multiplied by 30 cc water must be consumed (e.g. a person with 70 kg should drink 2100 ml per day, i.e. about 11 glasses of water)
  • Malnutrition of bakery products that trigger food intolerance and allergy should be reduced.
  • Black tea consumption should be reduced. Excess consumption of three glasses a day may exacerbate complaints.
  • During the pain, a five minute massage on the eyebrow (microsystem), moving from the inside out to the outside, will relieve the patient seriously. When you do this, the patient will describe you as a nail when you press a point. Wait a little at that point and increase your pressure intensity slightly in that area. This massage will increase endorphin release.
  • Massage stimulation of the ear acupuncture points quickly causes the migraine to retract.
  • Applying hot under the feet and applying cold to the forehead and nape region at the same time will cause the migraine to retract.
  • Trying to sleep in the period when the pain begins increases relief.
  • In children, it is particularly helpful to provoke vomiting, especially to reduce the intensity of pain.
  • Situations that pull down the level of serotonin should be avoided. Hunger, fatigue, having nutrients contrasting the temperament, stress, sudden light exposure. Amin and Tryptophan-rich foods increase serotonin levels (e.g. Orange, Yoghurt, Cream, Butter, etc.)
  • If the pain starts in a situation where you cannot get help alone, the vomiting reduces the severity of the pain. The cause of vomiting action increases the activity of the intestines and increases the level of serotonin. As a result, the severity of the pain begins to fall.
  • Foods that will increase the level of melatonin should be increased (e.g. cabbage, almond, nuts, groundnut, cherry, cranberry, anise tea, fennel tea, chamomile tea)
  • Bellis perennis (common daisy) tea causes increase of melatonin level. In addition, inflammation (inflammation) during the rising levels of prostaglandin and histamine is reduced. As a result, causes a decrease in complaints of headache. In three studies conducted in this respect, it was determined that the ovary had reduced migraine attacks. Consumption: It will be provided boiling 1-2 pinches for a glass of water, 7 minutes will be provided. Up to a maximum of 4-5 cups can be consumed during the day. Consumption should be at least 30-45 days (approximately 1.5 months).
  • Consumption of Ginkgo Biloba may be beneficial. Twice daily (approximately 150-300 mg / day)
  • The level of vitamin D should be kept at least 60 ng / ml, ideally 100 ng / ml.
  • Severe reduction in exertion occurs in patients receiving 3-6 mg of melatonin before bedtime.
  • Certain foods that reduce inflammatory processes such as fish oil (Omega 3), Turmeric, ginger, grape seed (resveratrol), and therefore reduce histamine release, cause the migraine to retract.
  • The omega 3 preparation should be at least 2-2,5 g / day. 1 sweet eyebrow grape kernel, 1 sweet spoon turmeric, 1 sweet spoon ginger consumed.
  • In particular, females must consume 2 sweet spices of ground flaxseed daily to raise their natural estrogen levels (Note: Flaxseed must be ground on the same day and consumed on the same day).
  • In migraine patients who receive 420 to 450 mg of magnesium once or twice daily, there is a satisfactory decline in the frequency and severity of attacks. Green leafy plants are rich in magnesium.
  • Migraine patients need to increase consumption of red flake peppers. Both antioxidant properties and pepper entering the stomach will increase the release of endorphins rapidly.
  • Fresh fruit and vegetable odor can help reduce complaints (e.g. green apple, cucumber etc.)
