Almost everyone has experienced a headache at one time or another.In fact, about 90% of people will have a headache within one year and 99% of people will have a headache in their lifetime.
One large study of 401 patients with chronic headaches randomly allocated patients to receive either 12 acupuncture treatments over 3 months or control intervention offering usual care.The results over one year showed that the acupuncture group suffered fewer headaches, took less medication, made fewer visits to their GPs, and took fewer sick days.
As defined by WebMD, "Migraines are painful, sometimes debilitating headaches often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, noise, and smell. These throbbing headaches usually occur on only one side of the head, although the pain can shift from one side of the head to the other, or can occur on both sides simultaneously. Migraines involve changes in chemicals and blood vessels in the brain, which trigger pain signals leading to headache and other symptoms."
Depending on the cause of the headache or migraine, and according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis, treatments can vary.Some headaches and migraines will respond best to acupuncture.Others have a dietary cause and can be treated via food cures (ie nutritional changes).Still others can use Chinese herbs alone or in combination with other TCM treatments to rebalance the body and relieve pain.
