Migraines seem to be a common condition in today’s world. As much as 12% of those living in the USA suffer from some sort of migraine issue. Migraines affect more women than men.
The answer from the medical community to help patients cope with migraines is a prescription of one kind of another and possible surgery if migraines are severe. However, both of these options come with dangerous and unwanted side effects. Most people are seeking more natural solutions.
Doctors have started counseling migraine patients on better lifestyle and behavioral options as these can impact migraine occurrence. Triggers brought about by food should be considered, although these are not as common as previously thought. Nutrition, sleep, exercise, and stress relieving techniques can all help cope with migraine headaches as these promote a healthy nervous system.
Another new approach is to increase healthy fats in the diets of those having chronic migraines. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) that are contained in fish oils have been researched and found helpful in reducing migraine attacks. These fats are known to lower inflammation and, therefore, may have a positive effect on migraine sufferers. However, this is still not addressing the root cause of migraines.

Addressing the Root Cause to Alleviate Migraine Pain
Upper cervical chiropractors have seen success in helping their migraine patients. At Upper Cervical Hawaii, we focus attention on the connection between a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck and how this affects the brainstem and nervous system. The atlas bone, or C1 vertebra, can negatively impact how the body functions if it is misaligned. It may place pressure on the brainstem or hinder blood flow to the brain leading to the perfect conditions for a migraine to occur. Correcting this misalignment by a gentle adjustment has helped many people see an end to their migraines. A study of 100 headache patients who had an upper cervical adjustment revealed that they all saw improvement in their headaches in as few as 1 or 2 adjustments.
