Fighting migraines with healthy lifestyles and reduced stress, along with traditional Chinese medicine like acupuncture, may help reduce migraine flare ups.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
Thumos Health Center, the Los Angeles area specialists in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, are pleased to offer their top tips for treating migraine headaches with acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Thumos believes migraines can be managed without introducing outside chemicals into the body. Migraines can cause severe pain that can be accompanied by aura, such as blind spots, flashes of light and/or tingling in the extremities. They can last for days, leading the sufferer to seek relief by lying down in a dark, quiet place. Acupuncture can help relieve stress and other factors that cause migraine headaches.
“Fighting migraines with healthy lifestyles and reduced stress, along with traditional Chinese medicine like acupuncture, may help reduce migraine flare ups,” said Ganit Kriel of Thumos Health Center.
According to Thumos, acupuncture helps relax major muscle tension and reduce stress hormones while boosting natural endorphins. Anyone experiencing migraines should consider Chinese medicine as a natural cure. Before scheduling an acupuncture session, patients should write down the following:
- Any unusual symptoms you’re experiencing, even if they seem unrelated to your migraines
- Key personal information, including major stressors and/or any recent life changes;
- A list of all medications, vitamins, or supplements you’re taking.
Thumos recommends the following dietary restrictions to help eliminate triggers.
- Quit smoking; Avoid nicotine
- Avoid nitrates (found mostly in processed meat)
- Avoid packaged meats (like salami or pepperoni)
- Estrogen is a major female hormone and a potent trigger for migraines
