Dear Dr. Hutchinson,
I’ve just finished The Woman’s Guide to Managing Migraine and it’s been so helpful. I’m a family physician in London, Ontario, Canada with many women in my practice who suffer migraine. Thank you for presenting the information in such a readable way and I especially thank you for providing the specifics of dosing, frequency, etc. of medications. I also really appreciated the case examples and the specifics of how you’d approach them. I will definitely recommend the book to my patients and will also be pulling information from it to help them!
“You’ve truly changed my life! When you told me that you could transform my 3-day excruciating migraines into a few hours, I thought you were crazy! When I used to lay in bed, cry and not even be able to open my eyes for days, now I am slightly uncomfortable for a few hours a month and spending most of my time being a productive teacher and loving mom (well, most of the time). I’m happy to report that I’m doing very well. I am still having small, predictable menstrual migraines, but I’ve been applying the hormone patch (3 during the week of my period), taking the supplements daily, and handling them with the combination of Immetrex and Aleve. I’ve been exercising and eating lots of complex carbs and protein. I can make the migraines stop in an hour or two. ”

“There is no other doctor I would have treat my migraines but Dr. Hutchinson. She takes the time to get to know her patients, she listens to me and I consider her to be a real partner in my health care decisions. Dr. Hutchinson is the BEST!”

“I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Susan Hutchinson as my migraine specialist. She truly cares. She treats the patient and not the headache. I am confident knowing that she will do what it takes to find me relief in a way that I am comfortable with.”

“I have suffered from episodic cluster headaches for most of my life. It wasn’t until I met with Dr. Hutchinson that I fully understood the cluster headache and how to treat them. After my visit with Dr. Hutchinson, she got me the medication I needed and I have not had a headache since. I feel a lot better knowing she is in my corner and if I get a headache again, I know just who to call. Thank you!”

“When no one else seems to understand or care, you can be certain that Dr. Hutchinson does. After living a headache free life for over 40 years I found myself suddenly suffering from what I later learned were migraine headaches. Before arriving at this conclusion Dr. Hutchinson spent a generous amount of time learning about my medical history, habits, behaviors and overall well-being. She is thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate and committed to finding ways to minimize your pain and discomfort and get you back to living the best quality of life possible. In my opinion there are not enough physicians in the world like Dr. Hutchinson.”

“Oh my goodness, your book was amazing! I just finished it. For me, that is quite a feat. It now has yellow tabs marked with subjects, it is highlighted in yellow and noted in pen. You basically answered all my questions on how to manage my migraines, but opened up two more. I hope you can help me with them!
Thank you so much for writing this book! I enjoyed your recommendations on OTC and herbal remedies, and have tried several of them. I identified the most with Christy, by the way. Please consider taking the time to help me with my questions. I truly appreciate your help! Take care, and keep up the excellent work!”
