Migraine headaches are one of the most common health conditions in the world—more prevalent than diabetes, epilepsy and asthma combined.1 Migraine headaches are also one of the top 20 causes of disability among adults.  I wonder how we could change the world if all of these people received proper testing (blood analysis), food allergy testing (if needed), chiropractic care, acupuncture and massage.  How many of them would get great symptomatic relief and truly get their lives back?
