Are Hormonal Migraines Normal?
I have been suffering for two years with the worse pain of my life with migraines! As a mama of two kiddos, I have experienced different levels of pain. For example, I handled a 48-hour natural back labor with my first baby, but these migraines are 10x worse than delivering a baby!
As an intuitive female and women’s health practitioner of 14 years, I knew something was not right and imbalanced in my body.
Ladies, women are NOT supposed to get migraines around their cycles.
If you were told it’s “normal” to have regular migraines by a provider then that is miseducation.
Migraines that are hormonal driven are an imbalance of the estrogen and progesterone ratio.
This can even occur in young menstruating teenagers or young women in their 20-30’s. Most of the time it’s from low estrogen if you are over 40 years-old and experiencing regular monthly migraines.
I am sharing this important post to help other women who are in the same boat as me and quietly suffering. You do not have to be alone in this pain, get support!
Please reach out, I am happy to support you in this hormone journey with acupuncture, herbs and hormone panels that identify the ROOT cause of migraines.
Acupuncture helps immensely with migraine pain, hormone balance and herbs that can naturally regulate the estrogen and progesterone imbalance.
Once those are balanced, the migraines will decrease and not occur! It does take time and patience, but it will treat them naturally without western pharmaceuticals that harm the liver and kidneys.
Today, I got my 30-day hormone saliva panel and the results were jaw dropping…
My Naturopathic doctor said “Yes, you were right Tina, your migraines are a hormone dis-regulation not quite peri-menopause!” She said my hormone levels are pretty low but not low enough for peri menopause.
What a relief to feel validated and my body telling me to check things out now, not later.
Ladies, Prevention is KEY.
I am so happy I am not yet a crone mama (female in menopausal phase). Reason being, I will be ready to gladly welcome that change once it naturally approaches. I felt intuitively that my body wasn’t quite there yet.
Best news is that I will try natural herbal tinctures that can reduce my awful painful migraines Hooray! Now I wait patiently for my miracle to occur over the next 90 days for the herbs to show some progress.
Bottom line…I knew in my heart that something was off with my hormones.
Ladies please follow your intuition! Women are always right in this department.
Thank you for your love and support.
*Please reach out to me if you are experiencing PMS, hormone imbalance, irregular bleeding, migraines or peri-menopause/menopausal signs.
