Suggestions for teenager suffering from migraines?

Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Do you have any suggestions for my 13-year-old son who is suffering from migraine headaches?

A: A 13-year-old should not have any migraine headaches. Migraines are usually predominant in females while males tend to suffer from tension headaches, which are neurological. In any event, a young child should not suffer from severe headaches. I suggest you conduct extensive tests to ensure there are no serious underlying conditions. MRIs, neurological assessments, and a complete blood work would be a good start. Consult your primary physician to determine the proper course of action.

You may find these specially formulated Traditions of Tao products helpful for migraines: “Pain”, “Internal Cleanse”, “HerpEase”, and “Calm-fort/Sleeping”. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
