Are you satisfied with your current chronic headache medicine? If not, join the club. Many chronic migraine patients would like to try natural ingredients, but either don’t know how or are too intimidated to take that first leap of faith.

More often than not, side effects like:
- Lack of concentration (brain fog)
- Memory loss
- Painful tingling sensations
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Muscular pain and joint stiffness
- Rebound headache
It’s enough to make you want to ditch the drugs and go au naturel.
