Chronic Migraines


K.G. Age 39, Social Worker/Yoga Instructor

Enjoys: Yoga

Condition: Migraines Since Age 19


K.G.’s intense migraines would come 2 - 4 times a month and would last for 5 days. She’s gotten MRIs, CAT scans, and numerous neurological tests, but everything came back normal. K.G. has been suffering from migraines since she was 19 years old.

K.G. had her daughter in 2010 and watching her grow, she knew she had to take control of her migraines. K.G. did not want her daughter growing up seeing her mom in bed for 5 days not being able to do anything for herself, let alone for her daughter. 

Also at the same time, K.G. was suffering from unexplainable stomach issues postpartum which led her to a holistic nutritionist who put her on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. The nutritionist helped and after hearing K.G.’s story, referred her to Dr.Shin.

By the time she came to see Dr.Shin at age 36, she was on a ton of medications, including an anti-seizure medication she took once a month.  She has been on it since the age of 22, and it caused her to be sick in bed for at least 5 days.

“He (Dr.Shin) said, ‘let’s try holistic way first then medicine.’ But, he has prevented me from taking the medicine!”

After seeing Dr.Shin, K.G. would have breakthroughs. There were some setbacks at times but within 6 months, K.G. stopped taking all of her migraine medications and no migraines! She worries less now that the migraines are gone. She is able to take care of her daughter and travel without migraines. 

“I feel safe in Dr.Shin’s treatments It’s such a healing, a holistic way of healing for my whole body.”

K.G. comes for maintenance visits.
