After treating patients with migraines for over a decade, I have concluded that pain has a purpose. Those who experience pain, especially from migraine headaches, are actually being given a lesson. If this lesson can be mastered, then the purpose of living will become all the more clear, leading to greater happiness and wisdom.
Migraine headaches, as classified by the World Health Organization, have been determined to be one of the most disabling conditions known to mankind. Severe migraine attacks are ranked as among the most disabling illnesses, comparable to quadriplegia, dementia and active psychosis.
