My Daily Battle With Migraines Is Finally Over!
I have been wanting to share with you the opportunities we have had working with patients that suffer from Migraines. I thought it might be best for you to hear it from a patient. Check out her story.
Migraines have been a part of my life since I was a teenager. It was inevitable that I would, most likely, inherit them since my mom and both grandmothers had them. It didn’t annoy me so much until I had a partial hysterectomy two and a half years ago. My migraines became chronic daily nightmares and my energy level was at an all time low.
Shortly thereafter, the Lord opened the door for me to come to work for Regel Pharmalab. After struggling with prescription and over the counter medications, I found that these migraines could be prevented with a few nutrients that I was possibly a little low on. I also discovered that balancing my hormones would help. Josh Regel, Pharm.D. made recommendations for me and I started taking two main supplements that I depend on that make a difference for me in preventing my migraines:
1) Magnesium AAC 400 mg – Every night
2) Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) – 400 mg – Every morning
Dr. Regel has also compounded a nasal spray and a topical pain cream that I have used at the beginning of a migraine. These two formulations have kept me, at many times, from having to take standard migraine medications that often have side effects.
I was able to balance my hormones by completing a saliva test and Anita Hester, Regel Pharmalab’s staff Registered Nurse and bio-identical specialist, made a recommendation to my gynecologist to have some natural hormones compounded for me. I knew nothing about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. I had only heard about the dangers of the synthetics and did not want to go there. While becoming educated to perform my marketing duties, I started learning the details behind the bio-identicals and how supplements play a huge part in enhancing the effects of the natural solution. Anita also referred me to a number of other supplements that she determined I was needing. I noticed an immediate increase in my energy level, and today I feel like a completely different person. I believe that this, in combination with the Magnesium and Riboflavin, is what has made the difference for me. I am happy now to be able to help other ladies through all I have learned.
