Natural Migraine Relief Remedies in Tampa and St. Petersburg

Anne Hermann, M.D.

Relief from migraine pain does not have to come in the form of medications that often leave the patient with terrible side effects.  The common prescription and over the counter migraine relief often comes at the expense of uncomfortable side effects such as nausea, hallucinations, weight gain, ulcers, seizures and dizziness.

There are alternatives to migraine relief that can be found in simple, natural ingredients that are effective almost immediately.

Medical research has proven that 300 mg of CoQ10 will decrease the occurrence of migraines by 50%.  It is necessary take either the high potency gel caps or tablets with some kind of fat because CoQ10 is absorbed by fat.

Medical studies have also shown that Riboflavin (vitamin B2) can cut migraines by 50%.  Riboflavin (vitamin B2) works to increase the energy that produces brain cells.  Lack of energy or too little riboflavin can cause migraines.  It is necessary to take 400 mg of riboflavin a day to prevent migraines.  Riboflavin can be found in foods such as dairy, nuts, seafood and leafy greens but you would have to ingest large amounts of these foods to get 400mg, so a riboflavin supplement is recommended.

Magnesium is the third supplement that can reduce the occurrence of migraines. Migraines can be due to reduced blood flow and pressure in the blood vessels.  Magnesium’s role is to tone the blood vessels which can prevent migraines.  The recommended dose of magnesium is 600 mg a day.  Leafy greens, nuts, berries, fish, bananas, raisins and yogurt can give you only a portion of the daily requirement, so a magnesium supplement taken with vitamin B6 is recommended.

Accent for Stretch Marks in Tampa and St Petersburg

Anne Hermann, M.D.

Accent for stretch marks is a device that uses radio frequency technology that works to actually reshape the surface of the skin and encourage new collagen growth to fill in the vacant areas of the skin caused by the stretch marks.  Stretch marks are created by many conditions – pregnancy, weight gain, and growth spurts  all can contribute to stretch marks. Until recently, there’s been little anyone could do about stretch marks, but with Accent RF treatments, you can see dramatic improvement in as little as six treatments.

What can be expected at an Accent for stretch marks treatment?

The practitioner will be lubricate the skin with a thin layer of oil and a then read the skin surface temperature using a laser guided thermometer (supplied with the Accent ™ system) to assist the practitioner in assessing the heating effect that the RF energy is producing. Regular temperature checks will follow to be sure that the correct degree of heating is being obtained in the treatment area, and also to confirm that a consistent delivery of the RF energy is being maintained.

After treatment, the oil is removed, the skin is dried and you are able to immediately resume your daily activities with no downtime.
