On December 10 Teri Robert posted an excellent post concerning the difference between Migraine and tension-type headache. Dr. Robert Lipton, one of the nation’s top headache experts presented a clear picture of the difference between the two.

That said, after the YouTube video ends, there are slides on the bottom of the screen that have titles, such as “How to Cure a Migraine Headache Naturally”Cure for Migraines, and Migraines: EFT Tapping Releases Root Cause Part 1. The last one has Michelle explaining what a Migraine is. She has her facts straight about the signs and symptoms or Migraine, but that is about all that is correct in this video clip.

Now we have to ask ourselves why we want to avoid these demands in the first place…..by manifesting a migraine we have a way to take a time out and get extra love and attention.

Right, as if I would conjure up a Migraine so I can miss my son’s graduation party. That was enough for me. I couldn’t listen any more.

So gentle reader, be careful. Just because one YouTube video in a series is valuable, doesn’t mean that all of them are.

Have an AWAP day,
