Headaches Hit Women Harder, and NHF Can Help

The National Headache Foundation would like to introduce you to a new, cool and unique educational portal called Headache U.

Headaches affect three times more women than men, which may be due to hormones. Worse, the condition can have a greater overall impact on the lives of women: self esteem, professional development and family and social life are areas women report experiencing a greater hit.

So what can we do about it? Headache U is the perfect website for headache sufferers to turn to! It’s all about YOU, which can help women with headache take a personal approach toward getting relief.

By logging onto Headache U, you and you can begin to “Chart Your Course to Relief,” with the first of many educational resources to be introduced in the portal. This first-of-its-kind online and interactive personal headache care tool asks you questions about your own experiences and based on your answers, guides you to resources… tailored specifically to YOU! Because sufferers want to spend less time worrying about their next headache and more time enjoying the fun things in life, Headache U matches sufferers with resources based on personal headache patterns, providing the steps toward getting relief!

The NHF also really stresses the importance of becoming a student of your own headaches so you get to know your personal headache patterns. Maybe you can blame your parents! Did you know that migraines can be hereditary? Whatever the pattern may be, get out some paper and start taking notes! The National Headache Foundation and Headache U is the perfect resource for you to check out.

In an effort to keep programs like Headache U going, NHF has recently launched an endeavor to help raise funds for future programs. To check out the details, and to learn more about Headache U, simply visit http://www.headaches.org!
