Migraines in Children

Migraine headaches occur in 10.5% of children ages 10-15 years of age and 7% of 7 year olds.  Environmental triggers can include lack of sleep, dehydration, stress at school including bullying, and hormone imbalance.  Many drugs are available.  Often overlooked are food allergies and yeast problems, which are readily treatable.  The Kaufman techniques of pain neutralization might be particularly helpful.
