Although they’re less common than “ordinary” headaches (mostly thought of as tension headaches), migraines are a significant problem for millions of people. Estimates show that about 35 million Americans have frequent migraines and migraine symptoms, with a high proportion (about two-thirds) being middle-aged women. (1)
Migraines are the third most prevalent illness in the world, and now nearly one in four U.S. households includes someone who has at least occasional migraines.
Because they can lead to pounding pain, sensitivity to noise or light, and even digestive problems, migraines can take a big hit on someone’s overall quality on life. How can you find migraine headache relief naturally or overcome other types of chronic headaches? Natural treatments for migraine symptoms include learning to manage stress more effectively, reducing exposure to triggers, such as lots of artificial light, and resolving nutrient deficiencies.
