Can We Call Migraine a Migraine, PLEASE?
About a month ago Dr. Oz had a show discussing how we could heal our headaches holistically. The show was called The New Science to Reverse Aging and I was excited to watch the video.
From the start I became uneasy as both doctors were using the phrase 'migraine headache' without distinction. This drove me nuts - is it so to call migraine a migraine and headache a headache? If you are going to have 'experts' on your show, shouldn't they know the difference? And enough already, Dr. Oz, please - migraine is a genetic neurological disease - NOT a headache.
Now, to give this doctor a bit of credit he did have some good points. Prevention is key, vitamin B2 is helpful, and it's important watch our triggers. BUT was he talking about - migraines or headaches?
I've continued with my "rant," Please Folks - Migraine is Not a Headache -on Hormones Matter.com. Take a minute and go over to see what you think.
Thanks for reading,
