Headache and migraine

Migraines are painful headaches, often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, noise, and odors. These throbbing headaches usually occur on only one side of the head, although the pain may spread to the other side or occur on both sides at the same time. Migraines cause changes in brain chemicals and blood vessels that register pain signals leading to headaches and other symptoms. Women are about three times more prone to migraines than men. Migraines predominate between the ages of 20 and 50, but their severity and frequency decrease with age. Migraines can also manifest in early adolescence. The risk of getting a migraine is higher if there are people in the family who have it. Migraines can be caused by food, stress, and changes in daily life.

The most common factors for migraine are:
1. Consumption of certain substances such as chocolate, red wine, and coffee.
2. Insufficient sleep.
3. Diets or malnutrition.
4. Changes in weather or atmospheric pressure.
5. Stress or too many emotions.
6. Strong odors or cigarette smoke.
7. Bright light or reflected sunlight.
Migraines medication treatment usually shows poor results. Most often, only temporary pain relief is achieved, rather than treatment of the disease. A very good effective treatment method is acupuncture, combined with a properly selected homeopathic drug. Acupuncture has a complex effect on the whole body. One or two courses of treatment are usually sufficient. In most cases, a complete cure of the disease is achieved.
