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.

Healing Chronic Migraines and Headaches vs. Getting Symptom Relief

The physiological changes in the body during a migraine/headache attack include inflammation,
muscle tension, narrowing blood vessels, hormonal changes and more.

People suffering from chronic migraines/headaches
mostly turn to pain killers, migraine prevention drugs, and injections in a hope of getting relief from their pain. It
is understandable.

The problem with drug treatment for migraines and headaches is that it’s focused on treating the symptoms, not the cause. The relief is a short term solution to reduce the pain but it doesn’t treat the underlining trigger causing the migraines/headaches in the first place.

IPEC Therapy – The benefits of a natural biofeedback approach for chronic migraines and headaches

There can be many causes of migraines and headaches; allergies, environmental triggers and extreme emotional stress and other reasons, but the source may be different for each person and so should the treatment.

The benefit of using biofeedback testing is that it detects the exact causes of your migraine and headache pains with the information received directly from your body.

With this valuable information, the IPEC treatment process targets the root cause while neutralizing your specific allergies, sensitivities and stress reactions.

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.

Biofeedback Testing?

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

Once the Biofeedback has been used by a therapist to detect specific issues, treatment can begin. There are many ways a person can be treated, naturally and holistically, for their migraines. Acupressure and acupuncture are both common uses.

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.
