Causes of Migraine

Many in the migraine community will tell you that:

  • There is no known cause for migraine. FALSE
  • Migraine is a genetic or inherited disorder. Could be but there is still a cause because some things that cause migraines can pass from mom to baby, like infections and toxins.
  • It’s a neurological disease.  You can call it that but what is causing this disease? Once you determine the cause then that’s your true diagnosis.
  • You can only manage them with medications, abortive and/or preventative.  Not true.  They can possibly be cured.  I did it!
  • There is no cure. False

But I would like you to know that a migraine is a symptom of something and it’s possible to get CURE them.  Unless you rule out all possible causes you can not say it’ just genetics. 

Migraine is a Symptom

I believe there is a cause for everything and every symptom in your body,  It’s not normal to one day get a migraine and then it becomes chronic. I had chronic daily migraines for 20 years before I figured out the cause.  I was told my “top” headache specialists that they did not know why I had a migraine every day.  I believed them for two decades until I found out the truth.

There is a cause to your migraine.

You may not have figured it out yet but don’t give up trying.

Don’t settle for:

“You have a family member with migraine so that is why you have them”

“I don’t know why you have a chronic migraine”

“I don’t know why one day you got a migraine and it never went away”

“Some people just get them”

“Your mom had some so that is why you have them”

“We don’t know the cause of chronic migraine”

“There is no cure”


Here is just a short (incomplete) list of things that can CAUSE migraines.

  • Borrelia Burgdorferi 
  • Babesiosis
  • Bartonella
  • Colorado Tick Fever
  • Ehrlichia
  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
  • Anaplasmosis
  • B. Quintana Trench Fever
  • Clamydia Pneumonia
  • Rickettiosis 
  • Powassan Virus
  • Heavy Metal Toxicity
  • Gut issues
  • Electromagnetic Field Radiation (EMFs)
  • Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) – Biotoxin/Mold Illness  See Shoemaker Protocol doctor to heal.  What is a Biotoxin illness?  Read about it here and here.


I’m sure this list is incomplete. But, it is possible to treat the cause of your migraine and get them to go away!  I know because it happened to me!

I’ve went from having 365 migraines a year to 15 in 2018. Only 2 of those were over a level 7 of pain.  The rest lasted less than 10 hours and were a level 5 and less.  I’m still treating a few things that can cause them but at this point I feel I’ve cured them. Woohoo!! I haven’t used my implant in a year.

Read my Migraine and Lyme Journey post here.

I encourage everyone with chronic migraine see a Lyme Literate MD or do testing on your own at Igenix or DNA Connexions.  DNA Connexions is an easy at home urine test but make sure you exercise or get a deep tissue massage 30 minutes before.

Fact: a negative test does not mean you do not have Lyme Disease.
