Do you suffer from headaches?
In fact, headaches are considered the top three most commonly reported health conditions in the world. Statistically speaking, 12% of Americans say that they have chronic and recurring migraine headaches.
To be honest, headaches prevent us from doing the activities we love. Plus, they decrease the amount of time we spend with our loved ones.
In this blog, we will cover one natural and HONEST solution for headaches.
Honesty and Headaches
The first step is being honest with your headaches.
When it comes to admitting we need help, one way in doing so is thinking about the past.
Think back to when you last had your headache? How did it make you feel?
Last question – promise! How often do you experience migraine headaches? Once in a while, once a week, few times a week, or everyday? Be honest with yourself!
Honesty and Healing
First step was being honest with ourselves. The second step is being honest with what works. We already know that Acetaminophen (Advil) works well. We also know other drugs such as Fenoprofen and Naproxen work tremendously well at relieving headaches. But do drugs get rid of the head-pain forever?
However, in this blog, we are concerned with what honestly heals headaches for good – and not simply masking the symptoms temporarily.
Honestly and Happiness
When patients feel happy after their headaches improve and go away entirely, we want to help more people suffering with headaches.
After many years of working with patients with headaches, we know what we do works. We use a system of natural medicine that combines both ancient therapies such as Eastern Medicine with Naturopathic approaches that heal the body. The honesty of what we do comes from clinical research.
In just one research article, “New study concludes that acupuncture is effective for relieving headaches. Investigators note that acupuncture reduces the intensity and duration of headaches. In addition, they suggest that acupuncture can reduce the need for pharmaceutical interventions.”
