A high percentage of children, teens and young adults with migraines appear to have deficiencies in vitamin D, vitamin B2, folate, magnesium, and CoQ10 (a vitamin-like substance found in every cell of the body that is used to produce energy for cell growth and maintenance.)
Migraines -- a recurrent throbbing headache that typically affects one side of the head and is often accompanied by nausea and disturbed vision -- affect approximately 38 million men, women, and children in the U.S. and 1 billion people worldwide each year. Migraines are a neurological disorder, characterized by recurring headaches and considered to be the most common disorder of the nervous system.

Stress negatively impacts our bodies and can be blamed for spiking the blood pressure, weakening the immune system, and increasing the risk for heart disease and stroke. But did you know that stress can also be the culprit for unwanted weight gain?
According to a Gallup poll, 8 out of 10 Americans are afflicted by stress, and similarly, 7 out of 10 Americans are overweight. This is more than a coincidence. There’s a direct correlation between stress and obesity.
When we encounter a perceived threat, the stress response system within our body is triggered, surging us with adrenaline, preparing us for fight or flight. Cortisol—the stress hormone—is released within the body, and it’s responsible influencing, regulating, and replenishing our system in response to stress. This is essential for the maintenance of homeostasis, but when stress is chronic, cortisol is continuously secreted, and that brings disturbance in our lives.
