Hello and welcome,
I had only heard of it once before you mentioned it. When I saw your message I did a bit of research and found an article on this website at this address: http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2006/dec2006_cover_migraine_01.htm.
I am considering discussing it with my naturopath as it sounds like an excellent solution if it's effective.
I would also be interested in hearing if anyone else has tried it and had positive or negative experiences.
Thanks for sharing all that Marianne. I liked the book alot too. I thought it made alot of good sense. I like to hear from others because sometimes I am afraid that I am too open to these kinds of things that everyone else seems to think are crazy!
I just ordered another book for my primary care doctor too. (in case anyone is interested you can get them on amazon for a bit cheaper). I have been researching this and reading alot on bioidentical hormone replacement for awhile now and my doctor knows this so she was fine with ordering the blood tests for this program. And prescribing the hormones that Dr. Dzugan recommended since. I received all the supplements so I am just waiting on the hormones. (I get them from a compounding pharmacy that a BHRT gynocologist that I used to go to recommended, so they have to get sent to me).
I appreciate what you said regarding your reservations. The money is a big deal. I decided to spend it only because I have tried going through a BHRT doctor (who also cost alot of money!) and although it helped some at first I could see it was going to be a long time figuring out what would work for me, if ever. (we were only working with estrogen, progesterone and testosterone). I like the idea of fixing all the areas that Dr. Dzugan speaks of...not just the steroid hormones, but the magnesium/calcium balance and also fixing the pineal gland and digestive tract. I am confused a little too, about the $100 a month thereafter and if you drop the monthly and go back, starting over with the high cost.
There was a thread on here a few weeks ago from someone who was enthusiastic about this program and they were posting alot of links and also all the titles of the chapters of the book. I think that must have been like advertizing, or a copyright problem because shortly thereafter the whole thread disappeared. Before it did though, someone else came on and said that she was the woman who had written the book with Dr. Dzugan! She said a few interesting things but one was that in the process of writing the book she had spoken with some of the folks who the treatment had worked for. Maybe she will come back sometime and tell us more. That would be interesing!
It is interesting that you started with the migraines only a few years ago. I have had them my whole life. I am in my early 50's too and in menopause. I hope that your doctor will be positive and help you. My primary care doctor was open to having Dr. Dzugan give his recommendations for me because of being very new to this. She is watching me closely though and monitoring my liver.
Sorry I wrote a book! Keep us posted. :)

Jeannemarie - hello, haven't heard from you in a while. Where are you in process of doing The Migraine Cure? I am anxious to get some feedback from you on the program.
I meet with my family doctor tomorrow to talk about this, among other things. I still have some reservations about starting up again with the hormones.
Last I looked at the site, I got lost in the forums and ended up going to a website that I had visited before, . I've read the entire website, decided to give the supplement a try (Christian Body Migraine Defense). I'm not yet 2 weeks into the program, and have also had some personal crises in my life, so am not able to make a good assessment yet on the product.
Hoping to hear some good news from you. Marianne

I would love to hear if anyone else is trying this. I have been on the program for 4 months now but am not seeing results yet. The women I talked to before signing up just raved about the results and I don't know if I'm a freak or what.
I came to Dr. Dzugan after 3 years of disablily migraines with no help from 7 different dr. including gp's, neurologists, chiropractors, homeopathics, MDs, DOs, you name it. I have a Phd but have been unable to work for over 3 years. I have a 14 year old son that takes care of me more than I take care of him. We just moved and I feel very isolated and desperate so I thought maybe I could find others that would understand my pain (phyisical and emotional).
