Cure migraines naturally: Find relief through lifestyle changes
A migraine is a mega-headache. It usually occurs on one side of the head and is accompanied by severe, throbbing pain. Sufferers can experience side effects like nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to lights and sound. Women are three times more likely to suffer from migraines onset by hormonal shifts. A migraine can last from four hours to 72 hours if left untreated.
Chronic migraines sufferers experience this debilitating condition upwards of eight to fifteen times per month. And most of them – nearly two-thirds – have not sought professional help or relief.
Several factors influence who is prone to migraines and how frequently they may suffer an attack.
- Alcohol, caffeine, and certain foods
- Sleep disruption
- Painkillers are only a temporary solution
The over-use of painkillers as a therapy to combat migraines can lead to other serious side effects, including more migraines! The risk seems to be highest with aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine combinations.
New research recommends chiropractic adjustments as an evidence-based approach to reducing the pain associated with migraine headaches. Regular adjustments can help reduce emotional stress and the stress on the muscles that support your neck and improve your range of motion.
Finding natural relief from headaches through lifestyle changes and functional medicine like chiropractic care offers you long-term solutions without the unwanted side effects of a lifetime of medication.
