Suffer from migraines? Get to the cause and find relief!

It is estimated that 12-16% of people in the United States suffer from migraines. Migraine headaches are often described as a “headache on steroids.” Common symptoms are mild to severe throbbing and pain in the head often worsened by light, motion, and noise. Migraines can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Migraine headaches are often debilitating, prohibiting people from working, exercising, or doing things they enjoy. Triggers for migraines include hormonal changes, stress, tight upper back muscles, lack of sleep, low blood sugar, and head trauma. Certain foods can also lead to a migraine.

Recent research into the efficacy of acupuncture as treatment for and prevention of migraines has shown that acupuncture can be more effective than conventional drug therapy. Several trials were examined that showed acupuncture decreased the frequency of migraines while also decreasing the intensity. A link was also found between acupuncture and the biological mechanisms that relieve pain. Acupuncture can stimulate the body’s release of adenosine as well as endorphins, which are natural pain relievers, and this stimulation may be linked to acupuncture’s role in the treatment and prevention of migraines.
