Natural Therapies for Migraine Headaches - Treatment Suggestions

What are Migraines?

Migraines are severe, painful headaches, characterised by preceded by sparks of light, tingling in arms and legs and nausea and increased sensitivity to lights and sounds and following throbbing headaches, often affecting only one side of the head.

A migraines attack can last for hours and sometimes days.

The cause of a Migraine is not fully understood, but blood vessels dilation, caused possibly by brain chemicals, such as serotonin and further changes within the brainstem in interaction with the trigeminal nerve, are involved.

Migraine headaches are more common in females, and may begin at any age; but most common between age 10 and 30 and often diminish or stop after menopause or for men after the age of 50.

Because a migraine headache reacts with the sympathetic nervous system feelings of nausea or diarrhoea and vomiting are often present. This response also decreases blood circulation to arms and legs, resulting in cold hand and feet.

Migraine headache may be triggered by many factors:

Hormonal Changes, before or during periods - Food associated triggers, such as alcohol, especially red wine; aged cheeses; chocolate; aspartame; caffeine; monosodium glutamate - possible unknown allergies or hypersensitivity - skipping meals - Stress - strong sensory stimuli such as sun glare or loud noises - missing sleep or too much sleep - physical exertion - change of weather - medications and possibly many others.

Awareness is important to work out a migraine sufferers triggers, which may change from person to person.

Natural Therapy, being holistic, takes all these factors into account, and even more, esp blood sugar issues, detoxification and weight problems. Magnesium based formulas and CoQ10 over a long period of time has seen reduction of migraines. However lifestyle changes and a specific individual diet need to accompany any nutritional supplementation.
