Did I get your attention?
I wanted to bring attention to a migraine treatment that may seem incredibly disturbing and taboo.. but that I am now considering (this is how desperate I am after having a constant migraine for 18 months now). the treatment is…. LEECHES. Yes, that's correct- Leech therapy. My mother has a friend who suffered from chronic/daily migraines for years and SWEARS that this was her cure. WOW! After doing some extensive research and speaking to this woman I am almost (ALMOST) ready to try this myself. THe hardest part is of course, psychological. I'm getting chills and the creeps just writing this.
Anyway, for those of you interested, here are some links (warning, includes some disturbing photos):

Best of luck to you all. If I end up going through with this fear-factor-esque treatment I will be posting all about it. I for one give up on western medicine and big pharma. The only bit of relief I've gotten has been from natural remedies and treatments. I know that my blood/chemical makeup is the underlying reason for my migraines. Knowing that leeches completely detox your body and relieve inflammation, improve circulation and remove blood clots sounds pretty amazing. Thoughts?
Here are some reviews form people who had this therapy for migraines in the UK- pretty amazing.
