I had acupuncture treatments 6 years ago that did nothing for my severe migraines. Now with a different acupuncturist, I have had amazing results.
Just talking about health issues in our world, our country and one thing many of us agree upon ELIMINATE GLUTEN as much as one can... get rid of wheat, oats, barley, rye... grains are loaded with molds today and we keep putting them into our bodies.
If you need to eat breads, pasta, pizza, drink beer... get gluten FREE.
Do a gluten elimination and see if your migraines are reduced/eliminated.
Do a search on gluten and migraines. Read the Grain Brain by Dr. Perlmutter
I only have one acupuncturist in my area that I did try 2/wk for several months although I have to pay out of pocket and got no relief. I am pleased to hear you are getting results. My migraines have never been worse. I have seen two different neurologists since the last time I spoke to you and even been turned down by the mayo clinic to see them. I am so down and out about the whole thing and always having a dang migraine with no triggers that I can think of other than the weather which you cannot control. Migraines are truly disgusting.
I had acupuncture about 20 years ago for my migraines and back pain. I stopped having the migraines after about 3 weeks of twice a week treatment and haven't had them since! It did not help the back pain at all. My sister gets migraines and swears by a magnesium supplement called "Natural Calm" in a powder form. I see you can get it at Amazon at $23.97 for 16 ounces. I'm sure it's available at health food stores also. A little pricey, but she says it helps her sleep as well. Best of luck to you Sara!
