We’ve learned time and time again that some of the most pressing health challenges faced by women are also the most overlooked and dismissed.
Migraines are one of these overlooked conditions, and the numbers are telling. 39 million Americans are affected by migraines, and 85% of them are women. There are millions of women suffering in silence, struggling to find the relief they need.
So many things trigger migraines, from screen time, skipping meals, allergies and birth control, to powerful smells, emotions and diet. This is an area of health that needs more attention and expert quality care.
