Migraine is a chronic illness by definition, but I think it is much more than that.
Migraine is a complicated condition which affects all aspects of the sufferers life, and it has to be seen that way.
Treating migraine as an illness is not the way forward, but treating the sufferer as a whole (holistic approach) is the right way towards success.
Migraine needs both the managing professional and the sufferer to work together in an integrated and complimentary thinking to include in its auspices listening to the sufferer and seeing the migraine sufferer as a human but not a sick person.
In my view the best way to control migraine, and for a long time, is to see it through three dimensions:
- The patient (the sufferer).
- The healer (the neurologist).
- The remedy (the medications)
In this section of the ponder, I will try my best to see migraine through that way of thinking, and to deal with it as more than just a disease.
I had good examples of successful approaches in managing migraine, and my experience in this field will be reflected in what I am promising to write here on this space.
Please keep your eyes on this space, and expect what you are looking for. I will do my best to deliver to your PC and I will ask for no thing but your feedback and your good or bad experience in dealing with migraine as a sufferer or a healer.
