Mr. Adam Meredith, Inventor and CEO of The Migracorr Migraine Stopper® answered some questions for me about his new device that’s helping a lot of migraine sufferers end their pain filled attacks and it's ALL natural.
It uses an air valve that provides gentle but precise air pressure into your ear drum.
And it targets 2 nerves, unlike the other ones on the market currently that only target one. Mr. Meredith's device hits the trigeminal nerve and vagus nerve.
Here's what you need to know before we get to the questions he answered for me.

The Migraine Stopper™ can be used for both an acute attack and as prevention. As soon as you start to experience a migraine, this is what you do:
Plus it's... Portable. Affordable. Lightweight. One-off purchase, no refills, unlimited uses!
The device is placed in your ear... in case I didn't say that yet!
The Migraine Stopper™ is the result of over 5 years of clinical testing conducted in Australia. The product is based on the research found in clinical trials published in Functional Neurology Rehabilitation and Ergonomics.
This research found that the majority of patients "experienced rapid, complete or near-complete relief from their headache".
This study is considered to be groundbreaking showing that ear insufflation ( the technique of putting air pressure in the ear) can be an effective intervention in the elimination of migraine symptomatology.
It works on different types of migraine because it treats the cause and not the symptoms.
So adults diagnosed with:
*(MBA) is a type of migraine headache with aura that is associated with pain at the back of the head on both sides.
No drug side effects from the Migraine Stopper™️ have been reported.
During the 18 months clinical trial, there were no reported adverse side effects from using the Migraine Stopper. The migraine relief valve increases the safety of the device to use and helps to ensure a correct level of air pulsing each and every time it is used.

And now to the Q&A... for easy ways to stop a migraine attack in its tracks.

We had great success in our clinics with different pain syndromes and pain relief, I have 4 clinics in Sydney, but I wasn't getting the results I wanted with migraine. Plus I discovered after a little research, just how underfunded migraine relief is by our governments.
So I started investigating neuromodulation devices. I felt driven to help my clients put an end to suffering so much pain.
It can be used as preventive and acute therapy. To tell you what's different... let me tell you how it works.
The Migraine Stopper™ is an innovative patented ear pump operated by the migraine patient. It works by using gently and precise positive and negative air pressure to stimulate two nerves in the ear for the goal of migraine relief.
It is designed to stimulate the trigeminal nerve and vagus nerve to calm down the over-excited brain stem. Overly excited brain stems are at the very core of why people suffer migraines.
The device is what medicine calls a neuromodulation device. What is neuromodulation? It is the activation of a specific nerve that helps alleviate symptoms in a patient.
The Migraine Stopper™ works by supplying a gentle and precise positive and negative air pressure in your ear canal. This helps to create a steady, reliable, and moderate push and pull effect on the ear canal and eardrum.
Doing this causes the stimulation of two specific cranial nerves, the trigeminal nerve and the vagus nerve. The trigeminal and vagus nerve are very well researched by medicine to be involved in migraines and their treatments. It stimulates both the migraine fighting nerves at the same time.
Current research shows that when the trigeminal nerve and vagus nerves are stimulated, they have a neuromodulation effect of soothing an overactive trigeminal nucleus in the brain stem. This helps to relieve the pain of a migraine. What's more... daily use of the Migraine Stopper™ is thought to rewire an overly active trigeminal nucleus allowing for less migraine attacks in the future.

Mr. Meredith also suggests these 4 tips to as ways to stop a migraine and to start your journey towards a migraine-free life:
Some of the other ways to stop a migraine using other (more costly) devices currently are: Cefaly, electroCore’s GammaCore, Nerivio and eNeura sTMS.
