Our “quick fix” society teaches us that the only choice for rapid, efficient relief from migraines is to take medication (or minor headaches, for that matter). Quite simply, this is untrue. In reality, there are non-drug options for treating migraines that have been shown to be more effective than drugs, such as acupuncture and pressure points.

There are numerous distinct causes of migraine headaches. These range from environmental elements, such as air quality, climate, and food sensitivities, to behavioral elements, such as dietary deficits, stress, and inactivity. Another well-known cause of migraines, particularly in women, is a change in hormone levels.

The symptoms of migraines vary greatly from person to person and across the spectrum of episodes experienced by each individual. Those who are suffering and looking for trustworthy therapy options may become confused and frustrated by this.
