What To Do About Those Miserable Migraine Headaches?

Migraine headaches, over 30 million Americans a year suffer from these headaches with symptoms of dizziness, nausea, sensitivity to light, sound and a variety of other health complaints.  Americans spend over a billion dollars a year on prescription and over the counter drugs and medications for this condition.  If you ever ask a migraine sufferer what type of medication they are taking and how often they most likely will say Motrin, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Imitrex, Zomig and others.  They also tell you that they have to take this medication everyday otherwise they have a splitting headache.  It seems like taking a toxic medication everyday would go against the philosophy of medicine in the early 1900’s.  Doctors used to use medication for acute or critical healthcare conditions to stabilize people and keep them alive.  These days approximately 50 percent of adults are taking one or more medications every day and commonly one of those is for migraine headaches.  Back in the 1950’s it was not uncommon to have to take medications for the common cold, allergies, reflux, headaches, acne, back pain and inflammation; however, it would only be for a very short period of time.  Medical doctors early on realized that medication is toxic and foreign to the body; so it would be better for the overall health of an individual to use it sparingly.

Patients are tired of taking migraine headache medication but when they tell this to their doctor it is usually met with some resistance. Many people have taken these prescription medications for five or more years and many of them have side effects of feeling tired and spaced out.  Medical doctors commonly put it back on the patient and say that it is up to the patient to take or not take the drugs, which means either deal with the headaches or take the medication.  This is very common among medical doctors but it is not their fault; they are trained in diagnosing and treating the patient with whatever means they know; and this is usually medication.  There are many causes of headaches and therefore many different remedies depending on the underlying cause.

If we took 50 random people with migraine headaches, there is a good possibility that the underlying cause of each person’s headache would be something different.  This is why migraine medication doesn’t work all of the time; all it does is get rid of symptoms or manage pain; it never gets rid of the underlying cause.  Wouldn’t it be nice to know if your headaches are being caused by food sensitivities, hormones, digestive issues, or an immune challenge like yeast or parasites?  What if a person has food sensitivities to sugar and grains that is causing migraine headaches?  Maybe every morning a person is having cereal and toast and they have no idea that this is the root cause of their suffering.  Alternative doctors reveal these kind of issues to patients all of the time; many frustrated patients are now feeling relief of symptoms because they are now eliminating the problem and not just managing the symptoms.

There are nutrition testing techniques that zero in on what problems the body is having, and how it might be contributing to a particular symptom or diagnosis.  Based on the results from this nutrition testing, specific nutritional support will be given to the patient to help them overcome and get rid the health condition or problem.  This technique has been around for years and it is getting amazing results for all different types of health conditions such as headaches, osteoporosis, arthritis, asthma and more.  Nutritional therapy is amazing because it gives the body what it needs to heal and repair; the patient is basically fixing their own condition, while not relying on drugs or surgery.

These nutritional programs are all natural and specific for each individual patient; this is different than the cookie cutter approach that medicine uses to treat these debilitating headaches.  Nutritional therapy helps enhance the body’s ability to heal and repair itself, and naturally take care of whatever is causing the migraine headache.  Doing a nutritional program is welcomed by the body, it not only makes you feel better, but the body will now be better and healthier.  Many Americans are suffering from migraine headaches needlessly everyday because most doctors only treat symptoms and they have not found the underlying cause of the problem.  Other options that have proven successful for treatment of these headaches are chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture and corrective exercises.  Finding the underlying cause of the problem is the key to treating most health conditions, the modalities listed above do just that.  When searching the internet one can find all of the benefits and side effects of taking medications or nutrition therapy for migraine headaches.  Everyone should be educated on natural therapies and how they can truly help the body and maintain optimal health.
