Migraine Relief: You Choose – Band-Aid Solution or Natural Cure?

Migraine relief
Migraine relief often involves a number of therapies used at the same time or in a sequence until migraine symptoms are gone. What if you could locate and eliminate the cause of your pain?

When you’re trying to just get through the symptoms of a migraine attack, the only thing on your mind is relief – any type of migraine relief that will take the pain away.

If you have suffered for years, you’ve probably tried many different types of migraine treatment to be sure; maybe you’ve even enjoyed some level of success with migraine medications and drug-free therapies. But more often than not, those painful attacks return because the solutions you’ve tried are only addressing the symptoms of migraines and not what’s causing them in the first place.

There is a drug-free approach that has shown great success in eliminating the cause of migraine headaches and, when the cause is located and corrected, migraine symptoms don’t come back. Now wouldn’t you think that’s a better way to achieve migraine relief?

Migraine Relief: Migraine Medications

Many migraine sufferers begin their quest for migraine relief by taking over-the-counter (OTC) pain medications when they first experience migraine symptoms. As the headaches get worse and these no longer seem to “get the job done, ” they then move on to stronger migraine medications, prescribed by their doctors.

There are two types of migraine medication available by prescription, abortive and preventive. Abortive medications provide relief of migraine symptoms after they’ve already started.

Both OTC and prescription migraine medications carry warning labels that alert you to side effects that can be experienced as a result of your taking these drugs. Sometimes these lists are quite long and the side effects can be risky and dangerous. So… you’re left to wonder, “Is the cure potentially worse than the condition itself?” Pretty scary stuff!

Over time, a combination of OTC and prescription medications may be suggested, such as, “Take this preventive migraine medication, but if you experience any migraine symptoms, then take this type of OTC pain reliever as well.”

It’s confusing, it’s often “hit or miss, ” and it’s frightening, to be sure. You just never know when the next attack will occur.

Drug-Free Migraine Relief

Many migraine sufferers, concerned about side effects and long-term damage that can be caused by taking migraine medications, have resorted to other types of drug-free therapies to treat migraine symptoms. Some have incorporated these therapies into their “migraine management” tool kits to use in addition to migraine relief prescription and OTC drug remedies – a multi-therapeutic approach if you will.

The most popular drug-free approaches used for migraine relief include:

  • Cool compresses that provide immediate soothing relief.
  • Biofeedback – includes specific breathing exercises, meditation and visualization techniques that may reduce the severity of migraine headache pain.
  • Herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals – some migraine sufferers have achieved success in preventing migraines or reducing their severity with the herbs feverfew and butterbur. Vitamin B-2, coenzyme Q10 and magnesium sulfate have also been used to reduce the frequency of migraine attacks and the severity of migraine symptoms during an attack.
  • Massage therapy, when applied to the neck area, often has limited success in relieving the pain of migraines and headaches in general that may result from stress and muscle tension.
  • Reflexology, which involves applying pressure to different parts of the feet to balance the body; this is the most widely used alternative therapy in Denmark.
  • Lifestyle changes, such as avoiding migraine triggers. These are best identified by keeping a journal of migraine attacks and recording what preceded them so you can avoid those triggers in the future. Getting enough rest and exercise is also important. For a more complete list of migraine symptom triggers, see related article, Migraine Symptoms are Severe – Natural Care Addresses Their Cause.
  • Acupuncture – the use of very fine needles, inserted into various parts of the body, that correct energy imbalances, improve the body’s ability to resist or heal from illnesses and help you to achieve physical, mental, and emotional health.

There is another drug-free approach to migraine relief that identifies the cause of your migraine attacks and seeks to correct it so that migraine symptoms no longer occur. And… it doesn’t involve taking potentially dangerous medications, either!

Migraine headache sufferers will try just about anything to obtain relief from their migraine headaches. Herbs and dietary supplements may help prevent or relieve pain, but they don't address the cause of your migraine headaches.

There is a drug-free, natural health care alternative that seeks to locate the cause of your migraine symptoms and eliminate it, so that you no longer have to deal with migraine attacks at all.

For many years, migraine headache sufferers have trusted chiropractic care for relief of their migraine symptoms. Why? “Because chiropractic care addresses the cause of their migraine symptoms, ” answers a successful chiropractor in Newark, Delaware. “It doesn’t just put a temporary band-aid on them.”

When a vertebra (spinal bone) in your spine is out of place, it can press on surrounding nerves, causing nerve interference. This prohibits vital communication between the brain and the body, and as a result, your body may respond by becoming sick in the area of the body controlled by the affected nerve.
