Stop Headaches With Out Meds

The number one reason people in America visit a doctor is pain. This ranges from pain Headachefrom a broken bone or other physical injury, to chest pain from a heart attack or panic attack, to pain from an ear or sinus infection. One of the most common pain complaints that doctors see is headaches or migraines. In most cases, you will walk out of your MD or DO’s office with a prescription for pills to make the pain go away. However, many doctors in Europe see pills for headaches as a last resort because they often increase a patient’s sensitivity, to headaches and in many cases cause rebound headaches.

I recently received training to treat headaches and migraines with an innovative new approach that does not use medication. It incorporates pressure point treatment, breathing, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). So far, each of the people I have treated with active headaches have reported their headache to be completely gone or nearly gone after about 30 minutes of treatment. Those that I followed up with the next day have reported their headache was completely gone shortly after the treatment ended. My first patient reported almost daily migraines for the past 20 years that she had been on numerous different meds to prevent or stop. Botox was her most recent addition to help prevent migraines and she said it seemed to be helping. At her second session she reported that she was having fewer migraines. She reported the biggest benefit, however, was the experience having a migraine that was coming on be stopped and disappear without turning into a full migraine. It gave her hope!migraine

Integrated EMDR (the name for this approach) is not a magic bullet to cure all future headaches and migraines. However, phase I of the treatment has been clinically proven to be more effective than medication in stopping an active severe headache or migraine. Phase II has substantial anecdotal support of decreasing the intensity, duration, and frequency of severe headaches and migraines.
