Emily Andre has revealed how she keeps her painful migraines at bay by regularly having Botox injections in her forehead.
The NHS doctor, 32, made the admission while detailing a ‘horrible’ migrane she had after returning from a family holiday in Dubai.
It comes after Emily suffered a scathing attack from her husband’s ex-wife Katie Price, who branded her a ‘disgusting person’ in a now-deleted social media rant.
Following the science! Emily Andre has revealed how she keeps her painful migraines at bay by regularly having Botox injections in her forehead
Explaining her experience with migraines in her new column, Emily wrote: ‘I’d almost forgotten how horrible having a migraine is. The use to make me vomit and lose my vision in one eye, which was awful.
‘I’ve tried all sorts of treatments in the past from my GP, but the thing I’ve found which has made such a differencefor me, is having Botox across the top of my forehead.
‘It’s not quite clear how it helps with migraines, but i can be given in the forehand, above the ears or even in the neck. Although most people think Botox is a cosmetic procedure, it has all sorts of other uses that can beenfit your health, such as treating bladder problems or excessive sweating.’

Emily explained that the procedure was first mentioned to her by her brother Tom, who owns an aesthetics clinic.
However she admitted she struggles to get it done every 12 weeks – which is the suggested time between appointments – because she is so busy.
During a recent TV apperance, Emily focused on discussing family life with her husband Peter and their children following Katie’s rant over the weekend.

Avoiding the subject? During a recent TV apperance, Emily focused on discussing family life with her husband Peter and their children following Katie’s rant over the weekend
Emily, who is launching a book for teenage girls about puberty, was discussing the new project on Loose Women, hours after Katie branded her a ‘disgusting person’.
Sources have told the Sun that the ‘real reason’ behind Katie’s blistering tirade is because she was feeling ‘jealous’ of Emily ahead of her upcoming TV appearance on Loose, which she used to regularly appear on for two years until 2019.
BOTOX: THE FACTS
Botox, short for ‘Botulinum toxin’, is a neurotoxic protein made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
It is one of the most potent poisons known to humankind.
Botox halts the release of a chemical messenger in the body that is involved in the activation of muscles.
While it can be used to relax muscles and treat issues from spasms to overactive bladders, it has become known for its cosmetic potential.
By relaxing face muscles, Botox can cause wrinkles to relax and soften, albeit on a temporary basis.
Emily, is stepmother to Katie’s children Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, whom she shares with her ex-husband Peter Andre, and often shares insights into their blended family but she avoided mentioning her stepchildren by name on the show.
Former glamour model Katie launched into a blistering outburst which she shared to her Story on Sunday, alongside the cover of a magazine which Emily gave an interview to about parenting in a blended family.
An enraged Katie made a series of allegations throughout the post, including a claim that Emily prevented her daughter Princess from visiting her during her rehab stint at The Priory.
During her appearance on Loose Women, Emily did not mention Katie’s tirade and also did not mention her two children by name during her time on the show.
Katie’s post began: ‘My mouth has been shut for so long but I’ve had enough of people selling stories on me and particularly this so called woman @dr_emily_official.
‘Always said I don’t want to be famous yet doesn’t do too bad to stay away from media and TV and now trying to make a career out of it.’
‘So cringe she has used my children to make money in photo shoots yet covers her own children’s faces up!’
The mother-of-five proceeded her rant by calling Emly ‘two-faced’ and accusing her of ‘putting her down.’
Enraged: Katie has since deleted the blistering outburst which she shared to her story on Sunday, alongside the cover of a magazine that Emily, gave an interview to this week. Emily has not responded to the allegations and it is unclear whether she challenges the claims
Katie went on to claim that Emily stopped her daughter from seeing her while she completed a court-appointed stint in The Priory last year after driving while banned, drunk and high on cocaine.
Katie continued: ‘She claims to be a doctor who clearly doesn’t have a clue about mental health.
‘Oh and stopped my daughter from visiting me at The Priory when she wanted to see her mum. She is so jealous of my relationship I have with Princess and puts me down.
‘Emily you are not and never will be my kids’ parent so mind your own business, your so two faced and definitely not the person you portray to the public.
‘I think you’re a disgusting person so stop trying to interfere in my life.’

A representative for Emily declined to comment at the time and a spokesperson for Katie was also been contacted.
A source has suggested that Katie’s rant was fuelled by jealousy that mum of two was appearing on Loose, which Katie was previously a panellist on.
They told the Sun said: ‘Seeing your ex’s new wife appearing on your old show might hurt, but this is just jealousy – and it shouldn’t be an excuse for such a vile attack.’
The insider added: ‘The claims she made are not just so cruel but totally untrue. Emily would never stand in the way of Princess seeing her mum.
‘Looking after another person’s children is never easy and she has been very careful to be respectful of Katie and has never once so much as spoken about her publicly.’

Katie also brushed off the drama, taking to her Instagram profile to share a mother-and-daughter photo with Bunny, seven.
She called her smiley daughter her ‘mini me’, donning a pink tracksuit as Bunny cosied up to her.
‘Me and my mini me Bunny [hearts] we love Pink [hearts] wearing my @JYYLondon range here x #ad #KatiePrice #JYYLondon,’ she wrote.

In Emily’s interview with Closer, she gave an insight into the blended family life she shares with husband Peter.
In a new interview, she tells how she tries ‘to keep things consistent’ for her and Pete’s children as well Princess and Junior.
Speaking to the magazine, Emily told how she prefers to ‘leave the disciplining’ of her stepchildren to Peter so as not to overstep the boundaries as a step mum.
While the medic admits to feeling more ‘like a big sister’ to the teenagers.
Way back when: Peter and Katie are parents to Junior, 16, and 14-year-old Princess. They got married in 2005 after meeting on I’m a Celebrity but divorced in 2009 (pictured 2004)
Detailing their parenting strategy, Emily explained: ‘I tend to leave the disciplining up to Pete and often I feel like a big sister, which works really well for us.’
The beauty also explained the importance of all the children having a strict routine so that their home is safe space as she added: ‘I think routine helps kids feel safe in the structure. I try to keep things consistent for them as much as I can.’
Katie’s outburst comes after it was revealed that she will not face any further action for her drink and drug-fuelled car crash after ‘disappointed’ police admitted there were ‘no legal grounds to launch an appeal.
Katie was handed a 16-week suspended sentence and two-year driving ban for flipping her uninsured BMW X5 into a hedge while disqualified and under the influence on a country lane near her home in West Sussex on September 28.
Sussex Police chiefs told The Sun they wanted to appeal the sentence, which came after a judge told the media personality she deserved to spend Christmas behind bars after committing her ninth motoring offence.

But last night, following a review, the police admitted, ‘there are no legal grounds to launch an appeal.’
A force spokesman added: ‘This is disappointing.’
MailOnline has reached out to Sussex Police for comment.
Last week, she also vowed to make 2022 a year of ‘no drama’.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain last Tuesday, the former glamour model insisted her woes were behind her after she narrowly avoided jail last month.

Appearing via video link alongside son Harvey, 19, she was probed about nearly ending up in jail for her latest arrest, to which she said: ‘The events were really traumatic.
‘It’s been traumatic after, so I’m not ready to talk about it yet. But what I will say is that I went to the Priory and I’ve made the decision finally to see a therapist every week, forever, to deal with the traumatic events that led me to getting into that car.
‘I’m very good at hiding things but when I’m ready to talk about it then I will come on to talk. There’s reasons why I got in that car and my mental state but when I’m ready I will.
‘I feel ashamed about it all. There are reasons that I am still dealing with now. It’s a new year but I’m still dealing with it, people shouldn’t judge people, there’s always reasons for things.’
Shame: Katie vowed to make 2022 a year of ‘no drama’ as she appeared on Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain in her first TV appearance since avoiding jail
Katie escaped with a suspended prison sentence because she complied with a requirement to attend the £6,800-a-week rehab centre – despite going out shopping while staying at the facility.
Following her court appearance, Katie released a statement saying she is ‘incredibly sorry’ and ‘sincerely grateful nobody was hurt’.
Now Katie has vowed to move on with her life, and looking ahead to the rest of the year, as she said on GMB: ‘2022 is my year, 22 is my lucky number. My birthday. The main box on Deal or No Deal. This has to be my year of no dramas.’
The crash: The former glamour model was handed a 16-week suspended sentence and two-year driving ban for flipping her uninsured BMW X5 into a hedge while disqualified and under the influence on a country lane near her home in West Sussex on September 28
Drink-driving campaigners said they were ‘gobsmacked’ by the ‘unbelievable’ sentence, but the judge said Katie would avoid going to jail because she completed a stint at celebrity rehab clinic The Priory and stayed out of trouble.
John Scruby, a trustee of the Campaign Against Drink Driving charity, told MailOnline the sentencing was ‘another case of a celebrity twisting the rules to escape justice’, adding the average person facing drink driving charges ‘cannot afford to go to a £6,000-a-week rehab centre’.
He also accused the reality star of ‘trying to play the victim’ in a case where ‘she is only a victim of her own stupidity and selfishness’.
Following her court appearance, Katie issued a grovelling apology and said she ‘realised the damage my actions could have caused’.
Moving forward: Katie revealed she wants to marry and have children with fiancé Carl Woods this year (pictured leaving Crawley Magistrates’ Court with Carl in West Sussex last month)
She added: ‘I would like to thank my family – my children, my mum, dad, sister, brother, my partner Carl, Leigh, and my friends who have supported me throughout these past few months
‘It’s been a really difficult time and I’m incredibly sorry for my actions – I’m sincerely grateful nobody was hurt – I realise the damage my actions could have caused not only to another family, but to my own as well.
‘I’m now spending time getting better – mental health is a hidden illness and can strike at any time.
‘The triggers that cause my anxiety and behaviour are something I’m trying to understand, come to terms with, and learn to control moving forward.
‘This will be a long process for myself and something I’ll continue to work on for the rest of my life. It’s also something I can work on with my family so we can progress on a new chapter.’
