In this video article I describe key supplements and prescription medicinesto manage Lyme disease migraines.

In addition to these steps,

  • stop coffee and all caffeinated beverages for a few weeks to see if this helps,
  • limit or eliminate emotional toxins and stress that tends to trigger migraines,
  • try acupuncture,
  • try meditation, and/or
  • treat for babesia if it is present in addition to treating Lyme.

To see if you have babesia, read How to Diagnose Babesia.
