Chronic Headaches or Migraines
Are you frustrated with chronic headaches or migraines? Are your headaches causing you to miss work or school? Do you feel that you are overtaking medication or that no one understands your struggle? A functional medicine practitioner can help provide permanent relief to this common issue.
Studies have found that approximately 12% of Americans suffer with migraine headaches. Nine out of ten of those who suffer from migraines report they have trouble functioning normally and three of ten require bedrest during a migraine episode. A functional medicine provider will not only find a natural supplement to relieve your headaches, but they will treat the root cause of the issue and prevent future headaches or migraines.
Food related allergies are a common cause of migraines. Thankfully, this can be easily resolved through allergy testing and eliminating certain foods from you diet. Your functional medicine provider will discuss your symptoms, past medical treatments, and headache triggers, as well as check for electrolyte imbalances or germs that could be a root cause of your pain. During your first visit, your provider will suggest supplements, dietary changes, and other therapies to ease symptoms while awaiting lab results.
You do not have to continue to suffer with chronic migraines or headaches. If headaches are preventing you from living your best life, then schedule an appointment for a comprehensive medical exam today.
