I see many people who get migraines of various degree and frequency. Many are taking some really strong medications that are often prescribed off label or are on strong pain killers that have some bad side effects. Neither of these approaches treat the root cause of the condition. Many migraine patients are young women who are otherwise very healthy. Sometimes the doctors are missing something that western medicine may not have a name for, an imbalance in the body that just needs to be corrected. Because western medicine treats the disease and not the person, its can be hard for them to see an issue that may be subtle and individual. Our medicine looks at the person as unique and the circumstances of the illness as unique. And usually with migraine cases the cause, and therefore the cure, is often very simple.
