What Causes Migraines
While the exact physiological cause of migraines is not known, there are many medical theories. Some suggest they are neurological, others are thought to be hormonal, and some possibly the result of bone alignment issues. There is also a documented genetic link.
There are several different types of recognized types of migraines, some with aura and some without. Approximately 12-28% of the population experience migraines, although they vary from person to person:
- Lack of food or sleep
- Bright light or loud noise
- Menstrual cycles
- Allergic reactions
- Weather changes
- Chocolate, alcohol, nicotine
- Food additives like MSG, tyramine, and nitrates
NaturalCare® Migraine has been formulated with high quality, all-natural homeopathic ingredients. Migraine works by relieving the symptoms of shooting pain and throbbing pressure.
A migraine is often more than a severe headache. It can involve pain, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. It is almost always on one side of the head, though a few types of migraines affect the entire head. The word migraine is French in origin and comes from the Greek hemicrania, as does the Old English term megrim. Hemicrania literally means "only half the head," which describes the majority of migraine pain.
Anyone who experiences a migraine can attest to the debilitating symptoms. These include throbbing pain, nausea (90% of sufferers), blurred vision, nasal stuffiness, pallor, scalp tenderness, stiffness in the neck, and sensitivity to light and sound.
Treatment of Migraines
Conventional treatment focuses on three areas:
- Trigger Avoidance
- Control of Symptoms
- Pain Relief and Preventative Drugs
Unfortunately, those who experience migraines find that these recommended treatments are not frequently effective at treating migraine symptoms. Now there is hope for a reduction in the relief of the throbbing and/or shooting pain, and pressure of migraines.
