Heal Migraine Headaches Naturally
How disabling are chronic migraines and headaches?
Headaches and migraines are among the worst pains imaginable. Not being able to turn off the throbbing pain, having a hard time thinking straight, and not sleeping can get very stressful. Extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and other accompanied symptoms triggers, take a toll on the quality of life.
IPEC Therapy – An energy based treatment from
the inside out
This approach focuses on balancing the reactions of the immune system, nervous and hormonal system’s reactions to your specific triggers, helping your body respond in more neutral and subtle ways that don’t trigger migraine and headache symptoms anymore.
How Holistic Therapy Can Help With Migraines
You can feel the pulsing and pounding beginning in your forehead, around your eyes, or on the side of your head. The pain is starting to build in your head. “Another migraine,” you sigh, going to the medicine cabinet to grab your Tylenol, Aspirin, Excedrin, or Ibuprofen.
But wait? Is that really fixing the problem? Sure, the pills will deal with the pain you are experiencing for now, but will they make your migraines go away?
Pills Only Treat Symptoms
The reality is that, when you grab those painkillers from your cabinet, you’ll feel better for a short time, but not for a long time. Pills and painkillers only treat the symptoms of your migraine, not the root cause, and so you’ll be back to the medicine cabinet very shortly, grabbing your pill bottles and potentially doing long-term damage to your liver. So, how do you deal with the route issues?
Holistic Methods Tackle the Root of the Problem
When you use a holistic method to deal with your migraines, the first goal will be determining what causes the migraine to come on.
The painkiller can deal with some of the physiological symptoms, sure, but they will never uncover psychological, environmental, or even allergy-related reasons for migraines.
Holistic treatment will generally start with biofeedback testing to figure out why it is that you are having migraines in the first place.
- Holistic Testing Modalities for underlying causes of migraine/headaches:
- Muscular Response Feedback
- Emotional stress assessment
- Allergies and sensitivities assessment
Biofeedback testing is, essentially, the monitoring of your body’s functions through electrical sensors. The tester will attach electrical sensors to different parts of your body to see where your energy is flowing.
It is a much faster way of gathering data about a person’s personal health and anatomy, while also being a significantly less intrusive way of testing a person.
Biofeedback monitoring can be used to detect energy blockage and concerns in your breathing, brain waves, heart rate, muscle contractions, sweat glands, and even your temperature.
Holistic Methods Used for Migraines
Acupuncture is the use of small, hair-like needles that puncture the skin in a non-painful way in order to relieve tension. Acupressure is the use of massage on pressure points to perform a similar act without the need for puncturing.
IPEC, or Integrated Physical Emotional Clearing, is also an effective, holistic way of dealing with migraines. Once the Biofeedback testing has determined where your energy blocks might be, gentle massage and pressure is used to ‘clear’ those blockages so that your body’s natural energy can flow more effectively, reducing issues with not only migraines but allergies and stress.
Since the treatment is based on the idea that mind and body cannot, and should not, be separated, treatment of the body is treatment of the mind, so if your migraines are coming from psychological as well as physiological places, the IPEC therapy can help with both.
