my mother had migraine so I thought I would ask. Is it hereditary?
migraine is not completely hereditary
but common lifestyle pattern, living conditions, methods of handling stress can cause the condition, to appear in the kin of patients
first and foremost, you need to do meditation, for 30 mins a day, in the morning , so that you can handle stress better
in addition, do pranayama (breathing exercises) anytime you are free, including when u r in the office
i do tht
in addition to that, you can take a product of Himalaya , called Geriforte , 1 TAB twice daily
this is a good stress reducer
You are welcome
take care and bye for now
