Migraine headaches are a really painful thing that can even cause nausea and vomiting. Here are a few prevention tips that may allay your misery if you suffer from them.
Clutching your head in pain and utter helplessness? Can’t take the drilling sensation in your skull that just won’t go away? You are not alone.
Many women (and men) between the ages of 18 and 44 suffer from migraine headaches. They occur due to a variety of reasons but stress, diet and monthly cycles may be the top three triggering agents.
When a person is a Type A personality he or she will react to everything in a negative way and furthermore not stop to smell the roses. This automatically leads to a buildup of stress. And the end result is the onset of a migraine.
Wine, chocolate and gluten (found in wheat) are foods to which many people are allergic and they too may increase the risks. If you want you may increase your water intake since dehydration is a number one cause of headaches.
Finally, catch your daily dose of Z’s since sleep loss also happens to be a fundamental triggering factor. Feverfew is a good natural supplement for migraines. And so are: magnesium, Vitamin B-2 and Co-enzyme Q10.
But if still you continue to suffer the consequences of something which does not lie in your control, worry not! For there is a latest invention which is FDA approved and will alleviate your migraines though temporarily.
It is termed Cefaly and it consists of a tiara-like band that fits around your forehead. This tech device sends electrical signals that stimulate endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers) and interfere with the pain mechanisms in the neural system.
Cefaly is now available at Amazon for $426 and $449 without shipment charges. And its kit electrode are also available at Amazon for $42.The gadget received approval after an experiment gave conclusive evidence of its rehabilitative effects.
It prevented migraine headaches from occurring on an ad hoc basis but didn’t prevent their reoccurrence later on. And the treatment is to take place specifically under a physician’s guidance and not to be mismanaged or it may backfire.
Use all these tips not to mention the device in tandem and you just may get rid of migraines for good.
