Headache and Migraine Testimonials

Fewer and milder migraine headaches

So far I have noticed that Banjo has decreased the number of migraine headaches I have per week. If I do get a migraine, it is not as painful as pre-Banjo. There is also a fair improvement in my sleep (quality wise).

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and mastocytosis: reduction in pain and fatigue

I have been diagnosed with Mastocytosis and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a rare inheritable connective tissue disorder. I have both classical and hypermobile types of EDS. I was first diagnosed with fibromyalgia in my 20s, but that was before they knew it was EDS. A lot of us with EDS have multiple diagnoses, and we often have a lot of pain and a lot of fatigue. I also have frequent headaches, and I have a lot of neck and back pain. I have also been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease of the spine.

After about four days using Banjo I felt a big change in the amount of energy I had. I also began to notice some reduction in pain. I had less pain in my small joints to start with. The pain in my large joints continued for some time. After about a month of taking Banjo the pain in my small joints was much, much better and I had less pain in the larger joints, but those continued to give me a bit of trouble.

I have now been taking Banjo for about two months and I  have noticed a marked difference in the joint  pain, headaches, back and neck pain. I take one to two  tablets of Banjo daily. After taking Banjo I notice a significant  increase  in my energy level.

I Kinda lost hope with Dr’s always wanting to shove synthetic drugs at people to take  instead of taking something natural for the body. As it states in our Good “Truth” book, there is nothing ever lose, but one can gain the natural effects and reap the benefits.

Dr.’s say do not take anything Natural with the Mastocytosis, well I can tell you that  is just untrue for some people…

Some nutrients that “God” put on this earth our body needs. And we need to see that our body is given these nutrients because if not bodies will start to fail us ..

Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground everything that has the breath of life in it I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.

Genesis 1:29

Thank ~You Dr. Steve for caring enough about people  I appreciate it….

Migraine relief for mother & daughter

I became aware of my daughter’s migraines when she was about a year old. When she attempted to eat food and manipulate it in her mouth, she would whimper and drop the food out of her mouth, putting her tiny head down and crying. Of course we went to a slew of doctors to try to find out what was wrong. When doctor after doctor said she ‘simply’ had migraines of an undetermined origin, I became scared and sickened. I was not able to find help for her. It became my mission to get relief for her. Nothing worked AT ALL.

When she began speaking, she would reject hard food telling me that it hurt her head to chew. The pediatrician kept my daughter on ensure plus and boost–as her total caloric intake–until she was five years old. As i watched her suffer, at five years old, I removed all artificial sweeteners and preservatives from our world–her world. She did seem somewhat better and began to eat solids when she felt well enough to chew.

She has continued to suffer terribly from migraines with vomiting, flashes of color in her eyes, dark circles, and a weary expression. This is what ‘normal’ was for her. I constantly had knots in my stomach and fear in my heart as I was sure more was going on than met the eye. Still, I was unable to get help for her.

Ivy’s migraines were obvious for 20 or more days a month. In other words, my child had no quality of life at all. There were no ‘simple pleasures’. Everything was a chore and burden for her.

She also had a difficult time in school from the very beginning. You know, trying to concentrate while in agony is impossible. She has always been an incredibly sweet person who always wants to please others and would weep when she couldn’t get the grades we all wanted for her and she wanted for herself.

None of this is ok. None of it. So, recently, as i am also a migraine sufferer (in a pretty BAD way), i began taking Banjo with the most incredible and awesome results in the world. I thought, ‘all natural…it works….I feel great….I wonder if my little angel Ivy would respond in the same way’.

I took matters into my own hands and began to serve ivy the all natural Banjo tea twice a day when I also drank my Banjo tea. I wasn’t really expecting her to have the results she had, I just HAD to be proactive and at least TRY SOMETHING. Doing nothing was no longer an option. The doctors telling me that she might grow out of it just didn’t work for me–or for my child.

Since being on the Banjo, my daughter has a life worth living. She doesn’t go from migraine to migraine and laying limp in the bed. She is an active little girl who has friends, laughs and runs and does what I have watched other children doing. She smiles and runs into my arms. This is making me cry with thankfulness to recall all of this.

Let me also tell you that at age 10, my daughter is making good grades for the first time in her young life. Her recent interim report card showed that she went up a grade IN EVERY SUBJECT. And this is only the beginning. in two days, she memorized the songs for the presidents and all states and capitals. She sings all the time. She’s not only beautiful to look at, she is beautiful to be around.

She has had a total of two migraines since being on the Banjo now for six weeks. Once was when she spilled it and didn’t tell me. Another was when she thought she didn’t need it anymore because as she so pertly told me, “I don’t have migraines in my head anymore, mama. I’m well.” The next day, she was hanging her head in the toilet, vomiting, and then just lay on the floor. I asked if she were ready for her banjo and she meekly held out her hand and accepted the cup of tea.

There will be no more disappointing doctors appointments for that which they could not fix.

Ivy will remain on the Banjo. My entire family is excited about what has happened for her. As her mama, I can only tell you that I am thankful beyond measure to have a product that has given my daughter the quality in her life that everyone should have, but doesn’t. We are so very lucky. I will not ever forget the life changing moment when I first saw the exceptional results of Banjo in my daughter’s face. Her smile is lovely, pure, and pain free.

forever thankful,

a mother and daughter

Relief from carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and severe headache

So far, Banjo seems to be doing a wonderful job!

I am a hydrocephalus survivor (born April 1963, hydrocephalus did not make itself known until 3 months later.) I get headaches that are sometimes incredibly severe. I also have tendonitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Using just one Banjo a day, I noticed significant improvement in my tendonitis after just three days, with rapid improvement in other inflammation-based problems as well. Very good indeed.

I’ve now been on Banjo for a couple weeks and I’m seeing continued improvement in my tendonitis and with other problems. Even my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome hasn’t flared recently, despite a great deal of typing. (For which I thank you, and give God the glory for you having discovered this medication!)

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is every bit as disabling as other, more recognized disorders (arthritis, for example) and the fact that the surgical “remedy” for CTS doesn’t always work is a real concern.

There is some question whether all my severe headaches are migraines, but at least some are. I don’t get nausea. But sensitivity to light and sound? Oh, goodness yes! One was so severe that I was wearing the protectors given to dilation patients underneath prescription Gray-7 sunglasses, and could /still/ see as if I were outside in full sun, even though the room was lit by fluorescent bulbs.

On advice from Dr. Steve, I have used two Banjo in a row within 15 minutes for a severe headache. (I didn’t bother figuring out what sort it was.) Banjo was very effective, taking the headache down within a very few minutes after the second lozenge.

On the occasions when I failed to take Banjo for as little as 24 hours (which has happened several times), I have seen a reversal of the improvement, so it decidedly works, even for someone with my rather unusual situation.

Thank you, Raymond Danner

This stuff may not taste the best in the world, but it WORKS!

When I first heard of Banjo about 6 or 8 weeks ago i was skeptical. I’ve tried many things for my fibro and everything failed. I had fibro so bad that I hurt all the time, my mobility was extremely limited, I had constant nerve pain, and I had no energy at all. I wasn’t sleeping well and I wasn’t able to play with my daughter very often. My quality of life sucked. I felt like I was dying from the inside out. I felt helpless.

I got my first shipment of Banjo and started it right off. At first I noticed no improvements. I also found that I can’t stand the taste of turmeric at all. Within a week I had to challenge myself to keep taking it. Then I started dissolving Banjo in my water. That worked wonderfully. I added a Splenda and a bit more mint.

By the end of the second week, I noticed I had cut way down on all pain killers. I have more energy, fewer headaches, and I’m in a better mood. I’m able to go out walking more and play with my daughter more.

My mobility is and always will be an issue due to injuries from a car accident. However, I have less nerve pain and i am walking with less pain. I’ve not used a cane in almost 3 weeks. By the end of the third week I’ve noticed I’m able to sleep without taking anything for the first time in my life! I’m waking up a little easier as well. Lol, you still don’t want to know me before I’ve had a cup of coffee though! I laugh more and smile more, as I’m hurting less and less. Now I’m starting to work on rebuilding my strength.

Thank you for giving me my life back, Dr Steve! This stuff may not taste the best in the world, but it WORKS!

Migraine relief without side effects

I have had Migraines on and off and increasing in severity and frequency since I was a teenager.

It is difficult to describe to people who haven’t had a migraine how disrupting they can be to your everyday life and how intense the pain can be.

It seems like I’ve been prescribed nearly every kind of migraine medication available  – some take away the pain, some don’t work at all. And the long long list of potenial side effects really freak me out!

I have also tried many natural treatments ranging from acupunture to detox treatments to cranial-sacral therapy with mixed results.  So the search for something without side effects is what led me to Dr.. Roberts and banjo.

I was pretty skeptical,  but I have found that if I take one of the Banjo lozenges right when I am feeling the start of the migraine that it doesn’t develop into the full-blown event that sidelines me for a day or more.  The Banjo lozenges taste great and are easy to take if I feel the dreaded pain arriving.

Fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis: less pain, more energy

Banjo has definitely helped decrease the number and severity of headaches I experience. When I am able to engage in modest/moderate activity, I am not as exhausted as pre-Banjo. I still have some daily fatigue but that is more MS-related (I opine) than fibromyalgia related. Joint pain frequency seems to be decreased as well as shoulder/neck pain (I am very happy about this)!!! Overall, considering I have fibro AND MS, I am pleased with the results. I just wish the daily fatigue would have decreased more.

Tears of joy

Dear Dr. Steve;

Because of Banjo:

1. i have more energy.

2. my migraines are so under control, i feel ‘cured’.

3. my herniated discs in my neck are pain free enough that i’m able to turn my head from side to side (what? no big deal? well, you’re wrong!)

4. my herniated lumbar discs, though still tender, allow me to walk up all 19 of these wretched steps to get into the house. i do this MANY times a day!

5. since the onslought of fibromyalgia and lupus, i have had the energy of a sloth. i not only have elevated energy, but i made it through my daughter’s cheerleading camp–which turned out to be 2 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week and all day saturdays. on top of that, i volunteered for all of the children’s age groups who participated in ‘spirit bowl! i was able to work my butt off!! AND, i suffered no ill effects from it. since the lupus, this was a first for me.

i am weeping as i tell you this. it is just THAT important to me to be able to be a mom to my children–whom, by the way, have watched me wither away in either a bed or chair.

again, steve, thank you for changing my life. in so doing, you’ve changed the lives of those i love and who love me.

with love and respect, cecelia latoof

Help with multiple conditions

Banjo is a good start for someone like me who has Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS, and other pain and fatigue diseases. I believe it could assist the user to ‘get some rest’. It has helped me tremendously with my migraines and headaches. Thank you soooooo much!!!


Sjogren’s syndrome, fibromyalgia, fatigue, weight gain

In my opinion, Banjo is a wonderful product.

About 6 years ago I was diagnosed with Sjogren’s and Fibromyalgia.  Sjogren’s is an auto-immune syndrome that attacks the moisture-producing glands, and Fibromyalgia is widespread pain. Both can cause debilitating fatigue. Rather than bore everyone with all of my annoying symptoms, suffice it to say that both syndromes have robbed me of my sleep, my energy, my good nature, and the pain was pretty consuming, particularly the migraine-sized headaches that started up about two years ago. Like I didn’t have enough to worry about, for the first time in my life I started gaining weight, and not just a few pounds… 30 pounds in about 2 years.

Since I’m trying to live a chemical-free life as much as possible, I felt Banjo was worth a try because it’s completely natural. When I started taking Banjo, I noticed an improvement in my energy level within the first week or two, which ultimately allowed me to move more during the day, and consequently I started losing weight.

I also noticed an overall reduction in pain… very subtle changes at first and then you suddenly look back after a couple weeks and realize that you don’t hurt all over anymore. When I get headaches, I can take a Banjo and within 30 minutes, my headache is gone. As a bonus, the lemon in Banjo seems to help invigorate my saliva glands, which reduces my Sjogren’s symptoms.

Taking Banjo had positive results for me, so I would highly recommend Banjo to anyone else.

Getting victory over severe fibromyalgia and migraine

My husband Michael is OUTSIDE playing P.I.G with our seven year old son Logan. For most wives this is not a big deal. For me it is nothing short of amazing because two months ago Michael suffered from excruciating pain and he could not muster up enough energy to get out of bed more than one or two days a week and his outside exercise consisted of walking to the mailbox once every two weeks.

Five years ago my husband contracted a massive blood infection that traveled through his body, caused kidney failure, resisted most antibiotics, and almost resulted in his left arm being amputated. From that day forward our life would never be the same. After two long hospital stays and numerous at-home antibiotic therapies the infection was gone. Unfortunately in its place was massive amounts of pain and Michael never got “better”. He continued to suffer immense amounts of pain all over his body that never really localized in one spot for more than one day but remained constant all over his body. He described it as like you have the flu but times ten. He also got terrible migraine headaches described as someone shooting a needle through his eyes.

We went to every doctor and every specialist including mayo clinic to find relief. You name it, we went there. We have had many diagnosis over the years but finally everyone settled on fibromyalgia. Finally Michael’s rheumatologist sent him to a pain clinic because we were told: “No cure, just pain control”. Between insurance premiums and medications we spent over $1500 a month on this illness. This was our life for five years.

As for Michael’s career he basically worked from our bed via the internet and when necessary went out into the real world only when absolutely necessary. He went from making close to $200,000 a year to barely making $30,000. His work ethic did not change during these five years but his work ability took a major down fall. In a month Michael could physically work maybe five of the thirty days. As time went on it became clear that the days of Michael actually physically doing his job were numbered. He was in search of a job that required no physical work and he thought his dream career was over.

Then Michael gets an email from Dr. Steve offering to help. Believe me Michael was very active on the web searching for help and also trying to help others with what he was going through. Michael gets at least one “offer to help” or “how I beat fibromyalgia” testimonial a day. As usual, he forwarded it to me to check out. We never gave up hope that something out there would work. So even though we were both skeptical, I emailed Dr. Steve and Dr. Steve mailed us out our first supply. Michael took the BANJO and we did not see any relief at first. I wanted the quick fix so after a week I kind of wrote it off. It is a good thing that Michael did not give up.

Four weeks after getting our package of BANJO I mentioned to Mike that the BANJO was almost gone and asked whether he felt any different now that he had taken it for a month. I thought Michael was going to loose it when he heard we were almost out of BANJO. Only then did he tell me how he had tapered down his narcotic pain pills from 10 per day to between 2 and 4. I was shocked.

See, Michael and I have tried a lot of different medications, home remedies, and diet changes. Every time we tried something new we would tell our son Logan that we were trying something and hopefully daddy would get better. This time we chose not tell him because a 7 year old can only get disappointed so many times before he gives up. Therefore we decided not to even mention anything unless BANJO worked. In addition, I myself felt that our life was the way it was always going to be and soon Michael would be totally disabled and unable to work at all. I felt that my days as a stay at home mom were numbered and I was in survival mode. I noticed him having better days but chalked it up to a good day and really did not focus too much on them because I knew the bad days were just around the corner so why get too excited. It wasn’t going to last.

So now, three weeks into taking BANJO regularly it was getting better. I still had my doubts about long term but I immediately told Dr. Steve about Michael’s progress and he agreed to send more right away. As the days passed Michael’s narcotic use dropped and at the same time his pain dropped. A lot of other products gave him bouts of energy or eliminated his pain for a short period of time but the BANJO was decreasing his pain for a LONGER period of time. It was as if we were finally treating the disease and not merely masking the symptoms. Michael began to have more and more painfree days. He got stronger and he started doing more around the house and he was not in our bedroom 95% of the time. He continued to take the BANJO and decreased his prescription medications such as Hydrocodone, Opana, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Lexapro, Wellbutrin, Testoterone, and Hydromorphone.

Michael has been prescription free for three weeks now. But more importantly he has become an ACTIVE part of our life again. Michael was always a part of our life. He spent a lot of time with Logan but he could only do things that allowed him to stay in bed. It is no wonder our family knows every UNO game because we built our life around Michael in bed.

My father died of cancer when I was 18 years old. With Michael’s fibromyalgia I often felt that I was reliving my dad’s last months over and over again. Michael was always in pain BUT he wanted to be a part of our life so he would do whatever he could to be a participant and hope that it was enough. Similarly, my dad knew he was going to die so he did things he would not have normally done. Frankly, he did more and as his daughter I felt more because I knew ssomeone told me it was going to end but I hoped that it would not.

With fibromyalgia you get the diagnosis but you hope you don’t have it as bad as everyone else. You go on with your life and during a “good time” Michael would do as much as possible until the fibromyalgia would take over. Logan and I during this “good time” would feel more and love more because we could do it with daddy. Logan and I do some fun things but the things that stick out are those things we did with daddy. Logan remembers a simple walk with daddy to the park more than he remembers a trip with me to Louisianna where he held a real alligator and drove a real boat. The difference being that daddy participated in the park and so that was so much better.

Like cancer, fibromyalgia takes over and we would loose Michael. For us it was the death stage because we physically and emotionally lost Michael for various amounts of time. Then for some reason he would come back only to go away sooner this time. We lived this cyle diagnosis to death for five years. We learned to appreciate the good days but not to expect them. For Michael and us we knew fibromyalgia was always lurking in the wings and sooner rather than later it would win and take over.

BANJO has allowed Michael to take over his body and has put fibromyalgia in a cell. I know fibromyalgia will always be a part of our life but BANJO allows Michael to control it rather than it controlling him. Michael is an ACTIVE part of our life now. It has been a wonderful awakening of our life. Michael gets up when Logan gets up for school. He plays sports with Logan and actually rode my tandem bike with Logan for the first time the other day. Michael has yet to beat me or Logan in basketball yet but he is out there playing with us. He has always been a great dad to Logan but now he is an even better dad. We continue to battle fibromyalgia but because of BANJO for the first time I think we are winning.

Fibromyalgia and arthritis fatigue, ‘fog’, and pain relieved

Dear Dr. Steve;

I want to thank you so much for sending me the Banjo.

I have now been taking Banjo for about five weeks. As for what Banjo has done for me – I have been thinking about this and without making myself sound like a medical wreck, I will have to list what I believe it has done for me to this point.

The first thing I noticed immediately was it eliminated my headaches.

Second, I have been working on painting the entire inside of our house since moving here the day before Thanksgiving last year. Normally (before Fibro) when I would paint, it would take me one day to do an entire room, 2 coats. With the Fibro pain it takes me three days to do a two coat room. I have to rest a day in between each coat in order to feel good enough to paint again. In that manner I painted most of the upstairs in our house over the course of several weeks. That was before being introduced to Banjo. It was very exhausting physically due to the intense pain I would experience the following day, or after resting.

After you sent me the Banjo I began taking daily 1 very large tablet that tasted quite awful. However, I was going to give it a try since it was a natural product. I noticed a big increase in energy almost right away. It was like the fatigue just vanished over a period of about 2 or 3 days. I proceeded to paint the balance of our house and I was so full of energy. And I didn’t have the pain issues I normally would get whenever I would paint or do any project around the house. I found myself eager for the next day to arrive so I could paint the next room. I wasn’t dragging myself out of bed in the mornings, and even with all the work I was doing, I didn’t have any pain. That is an awesome feeling!!

I keep noticing changes too. For example, the fibro fog is significantly less and the sugar cravings that go along with Fibro have also lessened significantly. I do notice that with each passing week I don’t have to take as much.

I finally figured out breaking the very large tablet in half and taking it that way was a lot easier for me. One other thing, the taste seems to “grow on me”.

I also started taking half a tablet at night when I went to bed. I noticed a few days into this my gum area that was always sensitive was no longer painful. (I had a root canal a few years back and that area has been very sensitive ever since). It was to the point where just putting a small amount of pressure on the gum was very painful and now I have no pain. That’s very nice. So because of Banjo I can now chew normally again.

The other thing I have noticed is my sinuses are not as stuffed up any longer.

Also the pain in my knees is almost entirely gone. My knees have bothered me for years and were getting quite painful, but that’s osteoarthritis, not fibromyalgia (I can tell because the pain is very different.)

Another thing, my right foot has been killing me for years and the pain on that has even eased up a little bit, especially the large cyst on it that is very painful.

I also have a muscle in my neck that has been very painful for months now and when I take the Banjo that pain also disappears.

I guess in a nutshell, Banjo has allowed me to feel normal again. It is so nice to wake up and not feel physically challenged. The energy is incredible. It is amazing how pain can really drain the energy levels.

I guess bottom line is, I was so very sick and tired of being sick and tired, and all the pain. Banjo has really helped me to feel normal again. I can’t bear to think of living without it.

Sincerely, Nancy Sandberg Cavanaugh

Fibromyalgia pain, migraine, sciatica relief – after 15 years

Dear Dr. Steve;

This is my update on my experience with Banjo.

I started using Banjo because I have bad fibromyalgia and have had constant pain for over 15 years, starting in 1993. For the first 3 years I was home bound, and my life since that time has been constantly limited by chronic, daily pain. It’s been a long time of suffering. Before starting Banjo I was also getting 2-4 migraines per month and had sciatica. The sciatica is better but i still need a forearm crutch for balance. Fibromyalgia & migraines are where the most improvement has occurred.

I’ve been using Banjo for about 7 weeks. During that time I have not had a migraine. That is a big change. But the biggest change is that my fibromyalgia pain is almost gone. That’s how Banjo has really changed my life.

First on the migraine, as holidays rolled around and I was eating different foods (made by others so I don’t know the ingredients) which normally would lead to major pain during holidays with major migraine. But this time, after a few weeks on banjo, I only had one or two slight headaches … nothing debilitating.

Normal aches & pains were also being diminished by that time. After 2 weeks the effect was not super dramatic on my fibromyalgia but I was able to make a trip to New Orleans for a few weeks and I didn’t need a week to recover from driving.

Now, after 7 weeks on Banjo I’ve recently made a couple 8 hour drives. I just couldn’t have done this without Banjo, because of the pain and the extra pain it would cause. Now I’ve been living out of a suitcase for the past few weeks and planning more travel for the new year. Wouldn’t have considered this much travel 3 months ago. The pain from the trip would have me bedridden for a week (at least) now I take a day to recover & I’m up & going again.

I still have some aches and pains but my life is much more normal than before. I have a lot of my freedom back and I feel I just keep getting better. I have recommended Banjo to friends and relatives who suffer with pain, especially with fibromyalgia and migraine. Banjo works.



Gradual improvement: severe pain, fatigue, constant migraine all decreasing

I have severe, diffuse  joint pain and extreme fatigue resulting from fibromyalgia.

I started taking Banjo about a two weeks ago. Within a week noticed less joint pain and less fatigue. I’ve been sick for a long time and so don’t expect a quick resolution. Since I’ve only been taking it a short while I consider myself a work in progress, but am very happy that I had any results at all, since nothing has ever worked for me.

I am less painful, less fatigued and more functional. I am absolutely going to continue taking it, there are no side effects and it really is helping. I will continue to advise Dr. Steve about my results.

Dana T.

Update 1: After taking Banjo for four weeks now I estimate overall pain is less by 30%. That is huge for me! Plus I’m using fewer pain meds.

Update 2: I’d say I’m now past 30% pain relief after 7 weeks.  Just sore in the mornings rather than sharp stabbing ‘I can’t walk’ kind of pain. I am managing to get about 6 hours of work done a day. Still have to take breaks in between and sometimes sleep, but that’s better than before. Migraine is reduced greatly. Before Banjo I was using an imitrex every day. Now I only need one about every 4 days. Getting off the demerol.

Menstrual migraine eliminated

I had debilitating headaches for years starting from when I was teenager, but it wasn’t until I was in my 30’s that I heard the term “menstrual migraine” – and worse, my OB-GYN told me there was no cure, they were the hardest migraine to treat and manage, and I could look forward to menopause! Great (I’m being sarcastic) I then proceeeded to try many different brands and types of prescription migraine medications as well as natural cures such as Accupuncture, biofeedback, herbs, restricted diet and Accupressure to name a few.

Although I finally found a prescription medication that worked, it made me drowsy and I was finding I had to take double and triple doses. I also had to pay for it out of pocket since it wasn’t convered by my insurance. I found Dr Steve and Banjo by filling out an online survey on migraines. I received a sample of Banjo, and after following his directions on taking it every day, I made it through the month without a migraine! Since it was the holidays I was drinking red wine and champagne (which I’d found may trigger the onset of a migraine) but I didn’t get one at all which was beyond a wonderful holiday gift. I am looking forward to 2010 as a migraine-free year! Send more Banjo please!

[Ed. Note: Fewer than 10% of female migraine sufferers have acute migraine attacks exclusively in association with their menstrual period – but if you’re one of them – menstrual migraine can be prevented by starting Banjo a few days before the expected time of onset and continuing until the high risk time has passed.]

Fast migraine relief

I usually have a bad migraine headache 1-2/x a month. Just the other day, I had a pounding headache that made me so nauseous I couldn’t function. I then took a Banjo once and noticed the pain lessened (pain scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst) from an 8 to a 5 right away. I took another Banjo an hour later. The pain was totally gone half an hour later! I can’t believe it worked that fast!

Thanks, Jennifer

[Ed. Note: When treating acute migraine, the recommendation is to use two Banjo lozenges (one after another) at the first sign of the attack, and to repeat that dose if any symptoms remain after 30 minutes. Kill the migraine – kill it quickly – kill it entirely.]

All acute migraine meds work best when taken early in the attack – so regardless of whether you use Banjo or some other medication – don’t delay treatment of migraine!!
