Nutritional IV therapies are becoming increasingly important for those suffering from very chronic conditions that have underlying causes from nutritional deficiencies. It has been found that there is a set of people who are prone to migraines and stress headaches that are due to chronic mineral and vitamin deficiencies. Migraine headaches with or without auras are difficult to control and sometimes feels like they last way longer than they should. Many common medications designed for migraine treatments do not sufficiently address the pain or allow you to recover quickly enough. Some important things to consider if you suffer from migraine headaches:
Diet: Food sensitivities are often a major contributing factor of mineral imbalace or inflammation in the body. If you are sufferering from repeated migraines, get tested for food sensitivities. Often you will find your answers in changing your diet and allowing your body to have a rest from too many pro-inflammatory foods. Some people benefit from stopping gluten containing foods or dairy or nightshades. However, I've found that most people suffering from repeated headaches have food sensitivities much farther reaching than a simple food or two.
Past trauma: History of head injury or whip lash and the invisible scar tissue that may build up from past trauma under the skin can lead to chronic restrictive injuries that aggravate the nerves and lead to constant inflammation and pain flare-ups when you least expect them. There are common nerve bundle points that can be treated using neuroprolotherapy or biopuncture that can help relieve these traumatic injuries.
Hormonal imbalance: Women with hormonal imbalances often get migraines before their periods. Usually this is due to blood sugar imbalances, adrenal hormone imbalances and female hormone imbalances. Get your hormones checked and then balanced in order to fix the common PMS related migraines.
