Migraine Cures

Migraines typically last from 4 to 72 hours and tend to be throbbing, severe in intensity, associated with nausea/vomiting, and aggravated by light and sound. Often the cause of the migraines can be complex in that both emotional and physical stresses can be at the root cause. Numerous studies conducted in China have show the cure rate for migraines to range from 34% to 77%. The definition of cure was complete relief from the migraines without the use of any prescription medication. I have found that when a constitutional homeopathic remedy is added to the treatment that the cure rate is in the 80-90%. On the other hand when you look at current migraine medications they are less effective. Sixty percent of patients using triptans ( Axert, Imitrex, Maxalt, etc.) say their medicine relieves their migraines extremely well or very well. Whereas, the opioid/barbituarate users see only 42% improvement using this same standard. The other main advantages of using acupuncture and homeopathy is the side effects are almost nil. And, with these alternative therapies cure is possible. Allopathic medicine provides only palliative treatment. Terry Pfau DO, HMD
