Holistic Migraine Approaches
When it comes to migraines, there are limited conventional options available despite the advancements of modern medicine. Most medications prescribed for migraine headaches are actually antidepressants, antiseizure medications, or treatments for hypertension. What if you want to find a holistic solution to your problem. There quite a few options available that provide varying amounts of success.
First of all, it is important to note, that while the cause of migraines is still not known to the medical community, many triggers seem to exist and differ from person to person. Thus, different treatments may be more effective for different individuals. For example, if your migraines occur frequently after eating a meal then a nutritionist may be able to help you to come up with a diet to reduce the number of migraines that you experience.
Stress seems to increase the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. Thus, many sufferers seem to benefit from things like meditation, exercise, yoga, acupuncture, and certain herbs that have a relaxing effect. Some have used biofeedback as a method of learning to control their body’s various functions like heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension.
Another holistic migraine solution is upper cervical chiropractic. This is extremely effective because it relieves pressure or damage due to the misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae. Thanks to the location of these two vertebrae, a misalignment can cause many health issues including migraines. Even if an injury isn’t the cause of the migraines, upper cervical chiropractic may help mitigate the symptoms by helping the body to heal itself.
