Alternative Headache Therapies

Prescriptions medications do not solve every headache sufferer’s pain. The NHF website is a great resource to research and discover alternative headache treatment methods. Below are some quick descriptions of therapies that can be used to treat headache. 

 

Hormones Help Headache

Pregnancy can take its toll on a woman’s body, but reports show that migraine pain before childbirth is unlikely. According to NHF statistics, approximately 80% of women who have migraine stop having migraine attacks from the end of the third month of pregnancy until delivery because of hormonal stability.

Though 20% of women still suffer from migraine pain during pregnancy, medication use during this time is discouraged due to potential harm to the fetus.
