One of the questions I am asked most as a naturopath, who also lives with migraine, is what I do personally to keep my own migraine attacks at bay.
I’ve lived with migraine for 30 years now, and I’m grateful to have been able to manage them to the point where they rarely affect my day-to-day life – something which feels like a miracle as I approach the “danger time” for migraine - approaching menopause.
So here are the things I do personally to prevent migraine attacks. I don’t get it right every day as sometimes my life can be a bit of a hot mess (which happens when you work full time, run a business and have a small child!).
But honestly, these little adjustments I make to my routine mean that I can spend more time doing all the things I love, and less time struggling with a nasty migraine attack.
And there you go – those are the things I include daily to keep the migraine attacks away.
I don’t always get it right, some days stress, work, travelling or just being super busy means I have to take shortcuts sometimes (like a takeaway dinner) but I find that if I take care of myself 90% of the time, my body can handle 10% of indulgence.
If you would like a little help to investigate what YOUR migraine prevention routine could look like, then feel free to book in for an appointment. My treatment plans are perfectly designed for people with migraine, and I’d love to help you.
