Migraines and Integrative Medicine

Featuring Dr. Kim Hecht, Interim Medical Director of the UCI Health Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute

Wednesday, July 15
4—5 p.m.
Please RSVP for Zoom details

Join us for a virtual discussion on the current research on the benefits of dietary approaches and nutraceuticals in the prevention and treatment of migraines.

In the U.S., more than 38 million people have migraine disease, with some estimates suggesting that this number may be even higher, impacting as many as 50 million or more. Some migraine studies estimate that 12 percent of adults in the U.S. population have migraine, and 4 million have chronic migraine. This special Zoom presentation from Dr. Kim Hecht, of the University of California Irvine’s Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute, will be sharing her experience and insight on:

  • What are the different types of migraines?
  • How to prevent migraines?
  • What types of diets and supplements that are helpful in prevention or treatment of migraines?

How do you treat migraines?
