There are different types of treatment for Migraine. Preventive, abortive to stop the Migraines, rescue treatment for times when the others have failed.
Trigger identification and management is an important part of Migraine management and preventing Migraines. You may have some triggers that you can avoid, thus preventing Migraines brought on by those triggers. Do you know what any of your triggers are? When working to identify triggers one of the best tools is a good Migraine diary. You can read more about this and download a free diary workbook in our article Your Migraine and Headache Diary.
There are now over 100 medications and supplements that can be used for Migraine and headache prevention. The frustration of trying to find what works for us can make it seem as if we’ve tried it all, but with so many possible preventives, it’s literally impossible to have tried them all. See

Based on my training and experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine, I will tell you that Migraines are treatable to the point of cure. My patients cease to experience headaches....and in my book, that is cure.
BioVeda Technologies has a relatively new treatment for people experiencing migraines. I am having my first therapy session today!! I have terrible allergies, asthma, and chronic headaches.

I'm excited to try something different!
