Today, I’m talking about hormones.
In 60% of women who live with migraine, changes in hormone levels – particularly fluctuating oestrogen levels - is a major trigger for a migraine attack. If you get a migraine that hits around menstruation, ovulation and menopause, you are likely experiencing menstrual migraines. This can often be due to oestrogen dominance (when oestrogen is too high – or the ratio between oestrogen and progesterone is not quite right).
So, when I see a client exhibiting signs of oestrogen dominance, we look at ways to gently even out excess oestrogen. Here is how we do it:
Our hormone health is incredibly important. You can get started today by starting to swap out any chemical cosmetics for natural products; and look into a paleo or keto-style diet.
Take care, my migraine warriors.
