Patient testimonial about relief from migraines under the care of Dr. Kim Khauv.
Let's face it: we are more reliant on drugs and medication now than ever before to get relief from aches and pains. But, drugs aren't always safe or more effective. In fact, many people are addicted to painkillers nowadays. What's all the fuss about painkillers?
Think about this: Since 1999, more than 165,000 people have died in the U.S. from over doses related to prescription opioids. In 2014, prescription opioid abuse or dependency grew to almost 2 million Americans. Today, over 1000 people are treated in the Emergency department for misusing prescription opioids.
The most common drugs involved were Methadone, Oxycodone (OxyCotin®), and Hydrocodone (Vicodin®).
Are there natural ways to treat headaches and migraines naturally, or are we doomed to stick with painkillers? While pain medications are effective, they have a grave downside. Think of all those side effects; your medicine cabinet is better off locked. Here is the thing: drugs treat symptoms at best.
The good news is that treating headaches and migraines with natural regiments and remedies is easy and pose insignificant or no side effects. To get you started, here are top natural ways to treat these complications. Read on and thank us later.
But first, let’s delve into a few basics.
What Are Migraines and Headaches?
Simply put, headache is a constant pain in the head caused by malfunction or over activity in pain-sensitive centers. On the other side, migraine is a condition whereby you feel an intense headache on one or either sides of the head, typically culminating to the eye. Migraines could be extremely debilitating, with constant pounding pain sometimes accompanied by nausea and dizziness.
Get Enough Sleep
Insomnia is among the leading causes of migraines. Garnering enough sleep could be the magical wand you need as a natural relief for migraines. Avoid habits and things that can cut back on your sleep. Caffeine is a prime example; stay away from it.
The need for regular exercise cannot be emphasized enough. It not only keeps you fit but also forms a formidable force against major migraines and headaches. Regular workouts boost production of feel-good hormones such as dopamine.
Relax and breathe while massaging your temple. This allows you muscles and brain to relax. Breathing allows higher intake of oxygen since deprivation of oxygen can lead to migraines.
