Is Chronic Migraine Destroying Your Life?

Author and publisher: Holly Hazen | Modified May 10, 2023

I have been in your shoes, and I know how devastating migraine headaches can be. For over 25 years I’ve grappled with this chronic disorder. But, my decades of trial and error, research, failures - and successes - have brought me to a place where I am living my happiest life again. 

Now... how about you... what brings you here?

  • Medications not working? 
  • Can’t stop the pain?
  • Don’t know what’s causing the debilitating attacks?

Is anything working?

I'm here to help you create a better life despite migraine. And based on my own personal migraine journey and professional experience as a therapist, help you to understand everything migraine a little better, a little clearer, so you can make some changes.

And to help you:

  • Learn how to be more prepared and cope with attacks
  • Develop an effective pain management strategy
  • Use food as medicine and as fuel for more energy
  • Rewire your brain
  • Enjoy life again. That's right... I said enjoy.

Migraine Savvy Bookstore: Books you can use right now if you can't afford therapy @migrainesavvy


9 Books you can use right now if you can't afford therapy. These are all printable workbook journals. Get effective (evidence based) migraine relief tips and learn practical coping skills from a qualified therapist. 


My mission is to help you to find acceptance and learn resilience skills to thrive despite living with migraine.

As a plan for going forward, I'm going to focus on two things you can control.

  1. What you put in your mouth. Food choices - diet - digestion - food as medicine - food as fuel for energy. And...

  2. How you can rewire your brain to move towards feeling happier and enjoy life again. How to move out of fight, flight, freeze (that migraine can get you stuck in) and into your parasympathetic system of rest, digest and heal.

Now doesn't just reading that make you feel calmer? Rest... relax... happier... Taking 3 deep breaths with a slow exhale always helps calm everything down!

If you are struggling with overwhelming emotions… you'll find numerous ways to help you manage this long term.

If you are struggling with breakthrough pain even when you take medication… you need to know to take it at your earliest warning signal. I call it getting your timing right. By understanding the 4 stages migraine goes through, and learning how to manage symptoms, you’ll be well on your way to getting back to your life… as fast as possible.

Your most important first step is to start finding ways to manage the pain and disabling symptoms. Trust me on this one… I had no support for 14 years or so, and suffered deeply without any pain relief whatsoever. Don’t put yourself through the same needless agony!

And you don't have to. Not now with all the new medications available all targeted specifically for migraine. 

You can start gathering tips and tools to help manage this condition more effectively and get your best chance at stopping your next attack.

Knowledge + Action = Progress


My free workshop video is on natural migraine prevention. You’ll learn ways to help tame stress and anxiety. What actually happens in your body when you get a migraine and when to act to help stop it, so you don't reach for the wrong things in desperation... again. 3 foods you can use for acute treatment and 2 diets for prevention, KEY supplements and more.

It will be essential to learn things to help you manage stress. This will help you grow more resilient. Resilience can be defined as having the capacity to prepare for, recover from, and adapt in the face of stress, adversity, trauma, or challenge.

And I know you can be resilient and plucky... PLUCKY – means having or showing determined courage in the face of difficulties.

Although it may take a little time and perseverance to find the right tools for your own migraine management strategies, I promise you, you can learn to live with this debilitating condition. If I can do it, you definitely can too!

I’d love you to stay in touch with me by joining my mailing list. Sign up today, and get your free copy of Track and Tame Your Migraines. It has my 5 top tools that you can use every day to help prevent that next attack.

Until next time, be well and be pain free.
