Ontario Headache & Migraine Charity

Helping Headache & Migraine Sufferer’s with Treatment Suggestions, Specialists & Education

Help for Headaches is a volunteer-driven registered Canadian charity, that is based out of London, Ontario, Canada – that reaches out to sufferer’s in Ontario, and outlying regions of Canada. Our approach is education-based and we firmly believe that a more informed patient is in a better position to search for answers surrounding their headaches, or migraines.

Our interest in education varies from headaches, migraines and rare headaches, to chronic daily headaches that include chronic migraine; to non-drug treatment approaches; to lifestyle modifications; to record keeping. We are also interested in any new, or emerging approaches.

Our team of volunteers is knowledgeable about world resources and truly wants to help you “sort out”.

Our latest book is called Non-Drug Treatments for Headache, and it will hopefully provide you with some additional thoughts to explore. The book is a volunteer project for Canada and is intended to broaden your treatment options. Regardless of you preferred method of treatment, this book is intended to inspire and motivate you through research. This book is authoritarian and will benefit both patients and new medical trainees. View Table of Contents.

The opioids (narcotics) cause progression of the illness (Chronic Daily Headache), not termination, and will actually make the individual much worse over time. It is easier and quicker to give the patient a pain killer than to "get into the trench" and try solve the problem. Patients with chronic daily headache require time, diligence, and frequent access from their physician.
