Bad Experience with "TheMigraineRelief"

Pouting_mimeOne of our forum members at MyMigraineConnection asked if anyone knew anything about and the "Guide" they're selling.

I didn't, so I went to the site to check it out. A woman named Elizabeth Hayden asks, "What If You Were Able To STOP Your Migraines Once And For All Without The Use Of Medications In A Very Simple And Effective Way? The truth about mysterious migraines has finally been exposed!"

Now, my theory on such web sites and claims is, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." Still, I couldn't find anyone who knew anything about this woman, her web site, or her Migraine Relief Guide. So, I decided to spend the $37 to find out what this was all about. After all, this appears on the site regarding a guarantee:


Now, I'm not going to tell you what's in Ms. Hayden's Migraine Relief Guide because I don't want to get into an issue about her copyright or any related problems. Suffice it to say that it was 65 paqes of nothing I hadn't seen before, nothing to do me any good. You could go to and get a book that would do you a lot more good for a lot less money.

So, I've now emailed them, asking for a refund, as they guarantee. In fact, I've emailed them twice.

Well, Ms. Hayden? Where's my refund?

Stay tuned, readers. I'll keep you posted!

Live well,

Do we ask questions about the right things?

Earlier today, I was sitting here laughing at a commercial depicting a man asking a sales person question after question about a new cell phone. Can you relate to that one? I certainly can.

The commercial then shifted scenes to another familiar situation -- the same man sitting in his doctor's office. Did he have questions for his doctor? Unfortunately, not. You can watch that video HERE.

Do you ask your doctor questions about your Migraine and headaches or other issues? If not, why not? Some people don't ask questions because they just don't think of them when they're at their doctor's office... some don't ask questions because they're a bit intimidated... there are many reason.

Please think about this for a minute. We literally put our lives in our doctors' hands. If we can ask questions about our cell phones, we absolutely need to ask questions about our health and health care. If you think of questions before going to the doctor, sit down and type them out, leaving space between them for your to take notes. Then take two copies to the doctor with you -- one for you to use, one for your doctor to follow.

Ask questions. It's our right. It's our responsibility.

Live well,
