Your head is throbbing. The lights are just a little too bright. The clicking of your neighbor’s pen is louder than you remember. You feel extremely nauseated. You’ve already taken your migraine medicine, so what now? What are your options?
Have you considered natural remedies? While pain relievers are good, they only mask the symptoms you are experiencing. Eventually, that medicine wears off and those symptoms come back. Natural treatment options look to treat the issue at its source. There are four major natural remedies that can serve as a healthy alternative to your regular migraine treatment plan. They include:
- Chiropractic Treatment: Misalignments of vertebrae in the neck and upper back affect nerves, muscles, and organs — contributing to migraines. Chiropractors use manipulative treatment to remove interference in the nervous system through adjustments to the spinal column. Removing the interference in the nervous system helps the body heal and the nerves to normalize , reducing pain.
- Acupuncture: This ancient Chinese practice involves the insertion of tiny metal needles into tense areas of the body Once inserted, gentle manual or electrical simulation is applied to the needles.
- Dietary/Supplementation: Migraines can be caused by certain foods in your dietary plan. By defining those trigger foods, you can lessen the chances of your migraines reoccurring.
- Massage Therapy: Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft body tissues to enhance health and well-being. By regularly massaging the tension out of these body tissues, you are able to relieve the current pain as well as help prevent the reoccurrence of tension migraines. Adding massage therapy to your necessary pain management plan will benefit you in the long run by reducing the amount of migraines you experience and reducing your dependence on pain medication.
