What Natural Therapy Stops Migraines?

by Casandra
(Canada)

I've had migraines for over twenty years and I feel like I've tried everything.

It has cost me a small fortune to try all the natural therapies that I hear about.

Is there one that works?

One that is guaranteed to work?

I have changed everything I can think of and they still persist.

I stopped drinking coffee, I stopped drinking alcohol and feel like a boring old fart now.

I've stopped eating all common migraine trigger foods - chocolate, sugar, citrus fruit .... nuts. Fermented things.

What's left?

I did not get to watch the summit but I would like to ask which natural therapy is guaranteed to stop migraines?

What Kind of Massage for Migraines?

by Carol

Hi Holly,

Did they mention massage?

When I was first diagnosed with migraines over 20 years ago, I was told by more than one person who knew about the disease (some doctors, some patients, some massage therapists) if someone with tension headaches or migraines had a massage once a week for six weeks, after six weeks, they would be done with the side effects (soreness and fatigue) and then start to have benefits.

Obviously, that is not true for everyone, but I do know people that it has been true for, including myself. I've been getting weekly massages for 24 years now, since I cannot tolerate any pain meds, and it is currently my only way to prevent more pain. My attacks don't last more than a couple of days, but if I wait more than two weeks to get a massage, I really am in a lot more pain more often.

I have to admit that I do normally feel quite drained for 24 hours or more after a session, so I make sure to leave the next day to rest if I can. Still better than having a migraine.

This is what I have tried and found to work best: myofascial release and most recently Visceral Manipulation. It’s a bit like Reiki. Another therapy I like is Bowen Therapy. I find these effective at reducing tension triggers.

Strangely the relaxing traditional Swedish massage gives me terrible vertigo and an overall feeling of nausea for days.
