Migraine Remedies

Updated on September 29, 2009

I've had very bad headaches in the past but I don't think I've ever had a migraine. My mother, on the other hand, was positively bedridden by them when I was child so I'm no stranger to them. Having a migraine can mean losing work, time and money and they can totally alienate you from friends and family if the recur so frequently that you'd rather avoid excitement for fear of triggering another one. Things are better for migraine sufferers these days, though: instead of locking yourself in a dark room and praying for the pain to stop, you can try one of these natural methods of migraine relief. EFT, Neurofeedback and other forms of healing are gaining popularity with migraine sufferers because they often work.

Once that's established they asisst you in retraining the brain to operate in a more balanced fashion, which can result in patients no longer experiencing migraines at all. According to this news report, some studies cite an 85-90% success rate.
