I'm participating in WEGO Health's Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge (HAWMC) in April.
Today's challenge is to write about a ludicrous headline or cure for my condition. The internet is rampant with examples of misinformation and quackery... it didn't take me long to look up and find a ludicrous headline/cure for migraine. (I know that I've been told A LOT of different - often ridiculous - "cures" and treatments to try by various people, but my migraine brain isn't working right now... online sources will have to do today).
Headline: Why sex can cure your migraine
Cure: There are various different treatments discussed in the article, including "sexual healing." However, it never actually states in the article that any of them "cure" migraine.
Headlines: How to cure a migraine
Cures: These 3 little articles claim to have cures for migraine. The first article discusses the effectiveness of peppermint oil for headache relief. The second article lists some steps to take to help relieve headache pain. the third article claims to have a natural cure for migraine (feverfew), and then lists some steps to take to relieve pain.
