Love for Lady Named Eileen was Primary
Reason for Migraine
I have suffered severely from the pain and agony of migraines
and the sorrowful repercussions they create in a person's life.
My name is Eileen Walsh-Henry and this is
the true story of a life filled with the anguish of migraines. That is, until
the truth about migraines was discovered.
It is also the story of my husband's work as a migraine researcher, the discovery of the genetic cause of migraines, identification of the biological methodology to prevent them, and the resulting formula for the prevention of migraines that later became Migraine Defense.
Like many young people who suffer from migraines, I first started to get migraine headaches around the age of ten. The photo above was taken by my father while I was suffering from a headache.
so they knew what was happening to me, but could offer little help other than a wet wash cloth and a dark room.
During my teen years the migraines came regularly with each period. In my twenties, the only extended relief from migraines was when I was pregnant. But as soon as I delivered each of my three children, the migraines returned. Caring for children while holding your head in pain is not the way a person should have to live, but I did.
my migraines began to worsen and within three years they had become a hellish daily nightmare of pain. Migraines were controlling every part of my life. It was not unusual for me to step over the line of safety and use two injections of Imitrex day after day in order to work eight hours and return home.
and began to feel that only death would bring an end to my misery.
Perhaps it was the strength and support of
my husband Lyle, who consistently helped me each morning as another migraine
attack came regularly at 4 AM that kept me going.
Following another bad experience at a well-known
migraine clinic, Lyle made the decision to . When he told me that, I knew he would not let it rest until he accomplished his goal. He had an international reputation for accomplishing tasks that took the mind of a genius and had provided solutions to several leading pharmaceutical
companies in the U.S. and Europe.
As for myself, I had nearly twenty years of experience working in the medical field as a . My knowledge of migraines generally surpassed that of the doctors who had been prescribing various migraine medications for me.
The deeper Lyle's migraine research went,
the more the doors to medical and scientific migraines research were opened.
This allowed Lyle access to vital information from other migraine researchers
and institutions around the world.
In 2003, after years of study, Lyle believed
that an inherited gene in a DNA is what makes one susceptible to migraines.
He published the idea that the expected gene would be found in the mitochondria
of specific cells that had receptors for the hormones secreted by the pituitary
gland. Universities later confirmed his belief
when they announced that they had discovered the existence of a migraine gene
in the exact type of cell that Lyle had predicted it would be found.
Lyle had already made the connection between the onset
of migraine episodes and the activation of these hormone receptors. More to the
point, he based his unique theorem on migraines on the direct cause-and-effect
relationship that the hormones secreted by the pituitary gland have on the onset
Accepting Lyle's ideas about how the problem of migraine prevention
could be solved, my MS Ophthaneurologist introduced us to one of his former research
partners, Dr. Coleman, a neuroendocrinologist from Harvard Medical School. At
the time Dr. Coleman was studying the effects of nutraceuticals on neurological
diseases. Although migraines are not neurological diseases, their meeting provided
Lyle with direction and guidance in the use of nutraceuticals in developing an
all-natural migraine prevention formula.
Within weeks my chronic daily headaches began
to fade. First I noticed they were less severe and they would stop much more
easily with even a lesser amount of Imitrex. Then I went from having a migraine
everyday to having migraine-free days in between. After a short time I noticed
that my calendar was filling with more and more migraine-free days and then
no more migraines. Not
one. Not ever again.
. I know it is working, because during the few times that I have forgotten to take it, those early warning signs of a migraine have happened, although they never formed into a headache.
When patients and workers at my clinic noticed the changes in me, they asked to try this new formula. By tracking their progress during a trial period, we knew Lyle had developed a migraine preventive formula that could work for all people who suffered from migraines.
It was never our intention to develop anything to sell, but once we knew it could work for others, we wanted to do whatever we could to help migraine sufferers, like you, enjoy a migraine-free life.
I chose this picture of me with one of our
five pets, because I am outside on a bright sunny day . This is something that a few years ago I thought I would never be able to do again in my lifetime. It is so great to live a migraine-free life. Will you join me?
