MISSION VIEJO, Calif., May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lifescript.com, a women's health and wellness website headquartered in Mission Viejo, Calif., has launched a new online Migraine Health Center designed to help women treat and reduce migraine pain.
About 36 million Americans suffer from migraines – a neurological disorder characterized by hyperexcitable brain networks that may result in severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, diarrhea and sensitivity to sound, light, smells and movement. Migraines are especially common among women.
"There are actually four phases of migraine headaches," says Edward Geehr, M.D., Lifescript Chief Medical Officer. "Not every sufferer experiences all four, or experiences them in the same way, but the early phases may offer the best opportunity for preventative treatment."
Unfortunately, there is no cure for migraines, but Lifescript's Migraine Health Center follows new studies being done on the condition and offers numerous tips and articles on preventative treatments, common causes of migraines, foods that may help or hurt, and most popular remedies for migraines. It also features interviews with famous migraine sufferers (actress Virginia Madsen, former child TV star "Blossom" Mayim Bialik, senator's wife Cindy McCain, and others) who have found solutions that work.
The Migraine Health Center also provides information about which doctors should be on your migraine team, and offers a "doctor finder" tool to help locate a specialist in your area.
The Migraine Health Center is one of 66 health centers on the site. Lifescript Health Centers are designed to help women live healthier lives with medically reviewed articles, expert interviews, lifestyle tips, quizzes, recipes and more.
