Although migraine headaches are linked in part to genetics, there are several key lifestyle and environmental factors that can contribute to triggering headaches. In particular, inflammatory conditions can trigger migraines by altering blood flow and nerve signaling to the brain. By detecting, removing and then healing the body from these processes we can powerfully reduce or even eliminate migraines from occurring in the first place.
While the majority of the 37 million Americans who experience debilitating migraine headaches are women, a full one-third of sufferers are men.
When one is suffering from a migraine headache simple sensations like light and noise can be excruciating, making it impossible to perform functions that require concentration – causing 91% of all sufferers to miss work as a result.
While there is a plethora of over the counter and prescription medications designed to diminish the pain, few know that their chronic migraines can be fully eliminated if the cause is determined.
One good way to get to the suss out the cause of your migraine is to keep a migraine journal — listing all the foods you ate that day, note any unusual stress, weather and changes in your sleep. These elements can all set off a migraine.
Through blood testing, we can detect the actual cause of your migraine, which allows us to then develop a treatment plan to stop them from occurring in the first place.
If you’d like to cut your tension headaches by 42% in just six weeks, scientists at Duke University revealed that eating 3 cups of nuts each week will do the trick.
Researchers give credit to the magnesium and potassium found in nuts.
If you suffer from chronic headaches, you may require more than a bag of almonds.
Work breaks can reduce headaches.
Johns Hopkins researchers report that the brain’s pain nerves are affected when the body switches from high stress during the week to relaxed come weekend.
A 30-minute break/day cuts headache risk by 55%.
