Thanks again for your entries! The winner will be announced tomorrow!
I'd like to say by reading Headway that I found 'the magic cure' for my 20 years of almost daily migraine headaches, but that would not be true. I have however, found in the pages of Headway so many ideas, hints and new things to try that I have noticed a drastic lessening in the severity and duration of my headaches. But the biggest and best surprise for me has been the number of days I now go headache free! My hope is to keep reading and to keep getting better.

Headway has shown me how to manage my headaches and still have a LIFE! Thanks! I have learned so much – from the types of headaches I have, to recognizing how environment and diet can contribute and trigger them. I used a food diary and headache/lifestyle journal for about four months and found patterns and reoccurring symptoms. Now I can stay away from the foods that trigger my migraines and can prepare mentally when I'm beginning to menstruate and have hormonal headaches. Knowledge is POWER !! Keep it coming!!My two kids are also glad! No longer do they see their mom huddled in a ball in a dark room, moaning!

It has help me and my daughter to know what questions to ask the doctors and suggestions to look into. She has suffered Migraines since grade school and is know a college graduate. No longer on prescriptions only on supplements and some day hopes to be drug free. The info over the years has help us to find the right doctor to get to this point. Thanks for letting us know we where not alone.

HeadWay gives a balanced view of migraine and migraine sufferers. By not preaching only all-natural methods or only traditional medical advice, HeadWay allows readers to feel that there are many options to migraine relief and that one does not have to feel guilty for trying one way or the other. HeadWay also has done a fabulous job of representing all types of headache sufferers and causes, helping me, personally, to stop feeling like I was the only one who suffered this way!

Great information about migraines, not only causes but treatments. Also how to explain them to family, friends and co-workers who have never had one before. I have also found useful information in speaking with my doctors and explaining things better. It has helped me in managing them from a personal but professional prospective as well. I have shown articles to my Boyfriend and he seems to understand them better and it has helped our relationship a whole lot due to him understanding them better. The communication with my Doctor's has increased so much better and for that it has helped. The new idea's and research out there have been great to look into and try to see if they are applicable to me. It has helped me manage my disease better and has improved my quality of life in my understanding of my disease that I have had for the last 19 years! Thank You HeadWay

Reading headway has given me inspiration that I no longer have to accept that my migraines have to remain untreatable. I have found Treximet and it has been a life saver along with diet, regular sleep habits and moderate exercise. Vitamins such as omegas have also helped me. Thanks Head Way for providing me with valuable resources which enable me to live my best and healthiest life.

Reading HeadWay keeps me up to date on the newest research and the newest medications that are available or about to become available for headache sufferers. Sometimes I read about a very simple little thing, perhaps it's only a diet modification, that is helpful. HeadWay is written in a style that is helpful and easy to understand and I like that too.
~Emily (Humboldt, USA)
Learned about some migraine preventatives that I hadn't known about (e.g. magnesium), learned more about child migraine (I probably had them, and my son may be having them as well). Perhaps best of all, I saw migraine art for the first time, and so was able to recognize it when a friend showed me her daughter's artwork and helped her diagnose her headaches!
~Christine (Ashland, USA)
HeadWay reminds me about how much progress is being made in the area of migraine research. HeadWay has also given me tips to lessen the pain such as taking Migralief twice a day and a better understanding of what happens during a migraine attack. I appreciate knowing that there are other people also looking for ways to deal with their migraines.
~Mary Jo (Wallingford, USA)
HeadWay disseminates valuable information not normally accessible to the average migraine sufferer. Headway has explored the gamut, from the wide variety of types of migraines (including unusual symptoms that one would not normally associate with a migraine), to prescription and alternative medications, herbs, and supplements–HeadWay has covered in depth all of these topics and more. I'm impressed that Headway has also explored lifestyle issues, such as exercise and foods that can promote or help mitigate migraines. This publication has been a lifesaver in countless ways, and I cannot praise it and James Cottrill's dedication enough!
