'SEEDS' for success in migraine management

Migraine is a genetic neurologic disease, but a number of other factors can contribute, as well. Changes in sleep patterns and hormone levels, and even changes in the weather, can trigger migraines. Sometimes all it takes is eating a certain food.

Dr. Amaal Starling, a Mayo Clinic neurologist, often encourages people not to focus on the triggers too much and instead think about migraine disease as a threshold disease. Treatments, such as medications, devices or procedures, can be initiated to raise that threshold. But people also can take steps to accomplish that goal ― steps Dr. Starling calls the "SEEDS" for success in migraine management.

For the safety of its patients, staff and visitors, Mayo Clinic has strict masking policies in place. Anyone shown without a mask was recorded prior to COVID-19 or recorded in an area not designated for patient care, where social distancing and other safety protocols were followed.
