Acupuncture Daith Piercings

by Dee Duncan / Body Piercer
(Lafayette Indiana)

I want to start off by saying I’m a professional piercer and I work directly with an acupuncturist to help people get the proper treatment for their migraines. The daith is NOT accurate for most. It has more of a temporary effect from the initial swelling that occurs right after the piercing. That swelling puts pressure on the rest of the nerves in the ear and provides temporary relief, but once that swelling is gone, so are the results you wanted.

However, that being said, the acupuncture piercing(s) for migraine really do exist. The catch is that you must have your ears marked first by the acupuncturist and placement is different for everyone because your migraines come on for different reasons. We have combined our efforts for this issue for the past couple of years and the results have been incredible. The essential key is that the placement varies.

Migraines from Gut Issues
by: Holly

Hi J,

Yes, I can image you would love to know exactly what to do to stop your migraine attacks. I have a post called digestion problems, here is the link - //

It might help a little.

I know that gut issues can trigger my migraine attacks. But that is a HUGE area. We are talking: poor digestion, poor absorption, nutrient deficiencies, constipation, diarrhea... just to name a few. Then there are things like parasites, organ dysfunctions and so many other things to look at when you refer to gut issues.

So the sad news is that I think any of that puts us in a position creating more opportunity for triggering a migraine.

But the page I listed might be a good place to start with digestive enzymes. Can you go visit a local nutritionist or naturopath that deals with migraines? I'd choose a professional over self dosing, because there really is just too much to consider!

Thanks for commenting, I look forward to hearing from you again.


Stay well!

Gut Migraines

So, a friend of mine had a migraine when she went to have her daith pierced, and it cleared up instantly. I guess she got lucky! I recently read that daith piercing can help if the migraines are triggered by gut issues. I would LOVE it if I knew what triggers my migraines.
