MigraBalance Pro contains 60 vegetable capsules, each containing:
Riboflavin (Vit. B2) 200 mg
In some clinical trails, riboflavin seems to reduce the pain and frequency of migraine.
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of patients receiving riboflavin improved by at least 50%. (Holroyd, 2003)
Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate 200 mg
Magnesium supports vascular tone in several ways: inhibition of vasospasm, inhibition of
platelet aggregation, interference with synthesis, release and actions of inflammatory mediations,
stabalization of cell membranes.
Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium, standardized extract) 50 mg
Feverfew is a natural botanical commonly recommended to support cerebrovascular tone.
Researchers found that 70% of migraine sufferers who had taken feverfew daily for prolonged
periods had both decreased frequency and severity of maigraine headaches. (Johnson, 1985)
Dulse 10 mg
Dulse is red seaweed grown in cold waters off the coast of New Brunswick. Dulse is a natural
detoxifying vegetable providing essential vitamins (particularly B vitamins), minerals, proteins,
and trace elements (including lithium).

The Anatomy of a Typical Migraine
Ginger root contains the active antioxidant components gingerols, zingerone, and shogaols. More than
80% of migraine patients report nausea. Experts agree that ginger is a highly effective anti-nausea
agent (Web MD, 2002).
The typical migraine headache is throbbing or pulsatile. The migraine is initially unilateral and
localized in the front temporal and ocular area. A migraine headache builds up over a period of 1-2
hours, progressing posteriorly and becoming diffuse. Migraines typically last from several hours to a
whole day. Migraine pain is moderate to severe, intensifying with routine physical activity.
Eighty percent (80%) of migraines are accompanied with nausea and vomitting which usually occur
later in the migraine attach. Fifty percent (50%) of migraine headaches are accompanied with food
intolerance. Some migraine patients become pale and clammy, especially if nausea develops.

allowing nutrients in, and wastes out.

Two Commonly Noted Causes of Migraines
Fluctuations in the level of the hormone estrogen during the menstrual cycle have been linked to
the onset of migraines. Headaches greatly decrease after menopause. Women who suffer from hormonal
changes may benefit from the use of a natural progesterone creme.
Low Blood Sugar
Studies have shown that blood sugar levels are low during a migraine attack, and the lower the
blood sugar level, the more severe the headache.
- Rule out food sensitivities thay may be contributing to migraine headaches.
Early studies have suggested that about 30-40% of migraine sufferers benefit markedly by avoiding
certain foods. The results of four double-blind studies support the role of food in causing migraines.
A nutritional advisor can help with a controlled elimination diet to identify offending foods that
impact a migraine sufferer.
- Avoid dietary amines
Foods such as chocolate, cheese, citrus, and alcohol contain amines (e.g., beta-phenylethylamine and
tyramine) known to cause vasoconstriction either directly or indirectly through the liberation of
- Reduce arachidonic acid
Arachidonic acid is found in a disproportionate amount of omega-6 oils in the diet, such as corn oil
and many high temperature frying oils. Arachidonic acid can increase platelet aggregation, increase
histamine release, and increase inflamation associated with migraines.
- Increase consumption of essentail fatty acids
Essential fatty acids, especially omega-3 fatty acids will help decrease platelet aggregation and
change the membrane composition to more of the unsaturated acids.
Recommended: Golden Omega-Omega, and
New Life 1000 for benefits and availability of supplements for essential
- Increase fiber and complex carbohydrates
High fiber vegetables, whole grains, and Nutri Cleanse will increase the number of bowel movements and
decrease bowel transit time, helping alleviate constipation and blood sugar imbalances.
- Consume a low fat, high complex carbohydrate diet
A study conducted by the Loma Linda School of Public Health, 1994-1996, showed that a low-fat, high
complex carbohydrate diet can dramately lower the frequency, intensity, and duration of migraine
headaches and, consequently, reduce the usage of pain medications. One of the most important
contributions of the study was to identify increased levels of blood fat as a common denominator of
- Add De-oiled lecithin to your diet as a natural source of choline
Red blood cell choline levels may be different in patients with cluster headaches. In a study of
cluster headaches, the RBC choline concentration of patients suffering from cluster headaches was
compared to age-related controls. The RBC choline concentration was reported to be low in patients
during and between cluster headache periods. during lithium treatment, choline levels rose 78 times.
(de Belleroche, 1984). Recommended: De-Oiled Lecithin and
