This is the latest trend in Migraine treatment and it is actually working
Migraine is one of the worst but most common afflictions affecting 29 million people in the US alone. The experience of a throbbing headache isn’t just painful; it can be extremely stressful as well. Migraines aren’t easy to treat as there could be several reasons that cause them. Moreover doctors prescribe migraine medication that can also have side effects.
The latest alternative remedy for migraine is daith piercing. Unlike a regular ear piercing, this is done through the cartilage of the inner ear. Although no research or studies exist to prove that it works, still this is the current trend to which several hundred people on social media swear by as it has actually worked for them.
1 Works on the principles of accupuncture
Daith piercing needs to be done by a trained professional and never attempted by anyone at home. Moreover, if you suffer from migraines, you should consult your doctor first before trying any alternate remedy. The piercing also requires medical care for healing. Professionals who deal in alternate remedies advocate daith piercing which works on the same lines as acupuncture.
Acupuncture works through stimulation of nerves which lie under the skin and in muscle tissue. The method then causes the body to release pain relieving endorphins that reduce the intensity of migraine pain.
2 Many have tried it with positive effects
According to a Facebook user Nicola Bandes who works as a managing director ““I’ve seen a reduction in frequency and intensity of my migraines where nothing else seemed to help. My husband noticed it before I did (and that’s saying something). Maybe I just wasn’t willing to admit that it was actually working.”
Another woman Natalie Thompson appeared on the BBC Radio Leicester to show how she had her migraines cured from daith piercing. For three and a half years she suffered from migraines. Now she says after getting a daith piercing done, her migraines appear less frequently.
3 Yet to be proved by scientists
As much as daith piercing is being advocated by users on social media, the fact remains that it is an alternative remedy which won’t be suggested by doctors or scientists unless studies prove otherwise.
As mentioned earlier, before attempting a piercing, consult your doctor first. Take a look at the video below to know more information on daith piercing.
