One of the people I trust for the truth is author and patient advocate Teri Robert. You can find her work at MyMigraineConnection.com, HelpForHeadaches.com, and in her book Living Well with Migraine Disease and Headaches. She’s also started a new blog, from Teri’s Keyboard.
Now, here’s someone who goes the extra step for us. One of her readers asked about a “Migraine Relief Guide” being sold at www.TheMigraineRelief.com. I would have said that Elizabeth Hayden, the owner of the site, was making promises that were just too big and to stay away from it. Teri, on the other hand, didn’t do that. She decided to check it out for herself. When I asked her why, she said, “With my work, I don’t feel that I can just state my opinion based on my reaction to a site. I feel that I have to have some kind of proof to back what I say.” OK, fair enough.
Anyway, Teri paid $37 to buy their downloadable “Migraine Relief Guide.” She reports that it’s 65 pages of material that contained nothing new to her. Nothing that was of any help to her. She points out that Hayden’s web site selling the “Guide” contains this section about her guarantee:
Teri reports that she has now requested a refund, TWICE. Helloooooo? Elizabeth Hayden! What about your promise? Your guarantee? Gotta tell ya, lady. This makes you look just like any other snake oil salesman.
But, back to this so-called “Migraine Relief Guide.” $37 for a 65-page downloadable book?! How absurd it that?
Tell you what. I’m going to say something Teri won’t say: If you want to buy a book, go to Amazon.com and buy a copy of Teri’s book, Living Well with Migraine Disease and Headaches. It’s 336 pages of great information — already printed!
I really hope Teri gets her money back. It shouldn’t cost her hard-earned dollars to debunk things for us, but I’m grateful that she’s out there looking out for us. Thanks, Teri!
PS: I went to the site and found an email address for these people. I’m going to email them about giving Teri her refund. The email address is email@example.com.
