Migraines Q & A

What is a migraine?

A migraine is an acute or severe headache that typically stops you in your tracks. In addition to a throbbing headache, migraines are usually accompanied by:

  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Slurred speech
  • Sensitivity to light, smells, and sounds
  • Numbness in your hands or feet

A migraine headache pounds relentlessly and often requires you to lie down and close your eyes.

What causes migraines?

Research on the cause of migraines is inconclusive, but doctors believe certain factors play a role in the development of migraine headaches. Some contributors to migraines are hormonal changes, muscular problems, nervous system issues, poor circulation, environmental factors, genetics, and changes to your brain stem.

What are some home remedies for migraines?

When you have a migraine, you’re desperate to relieve it. Some proven tactics to alleviate a migraine are:

  • Acupressure
  • Avoiding trigger foods
  • Yoga
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Magnesium
  • Cold compresses

  • Rest

Collaborate with Holistic Care Solutions to develop an in-office and at-home plan to reduce the frequency and severity of your migraines.

How are migraines treated?

Severe headaches like migraines require specialized care. Dr. Cabrera is an expert acupuncturist and gets great results for migraine sufferers. Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into your skin to restore proper energy flow through the body.

Other beneficial methods available at Holistic Care Solutions are aromatherapy massage with therapeutic essential oils, tension release with craniosacral therapy, and pain relief with cupping.

Dr. Cabrera supports you with nutritional and lifestyle advice to help minimize the occurrence of migraines and get rid of them quickly when they impair your daily routine.

Does acupuncture hurt?

Actually, acupuncture is very relaxing. You may dread the thought of needles in your skin, but the ones used in acupuncture are so thin and tiny that you may not even feel them press into your body. In fact, most people feel a release of endorphins and an overwhelming sense of relaxation during acupuncture.

At Holistic Care Solutions, your acupuncture session is in a spa-like medical clinic. The relief that you’ll get from your migraines quickly displaces any anxiety you may feel about the treatment.
