Natural therapy against migraine

Migraine is a special form of headache. They occur irregularly, usually only on one side of the head and are perceived as pulsating, pounding or drilling. In the case of a migraine, the headache is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting or visual disturbances and intensifies during physical exertion or under the influence of light.

The most common causes of migraine

Migraine attacks can last up to 72 hours and restrict the well-being of sufferers to such an extent that they can neither work nor do anything. Although migraine is widespread and has been known for a long time, there is no clear answer to the question of how migraine is caused. A disturbance of the messenger substances in the brain in combination with circulatory disturbances is suspected.

A migraine attack is triggered by different events. This can be alcohol, lack of sleep or stress. If you suffer from migraines, it is advisable to make sure you are always well rested. Not only alcohol, but also nicotine or caffeine in high quantities can put your body in a state of stress, which can eventually lead to a constriction of the blood vessels in your brain and to a migraine attack.

Cannabinoid therapy reduces intensity of migraines

Unfortunately, migraine is not curable. However, the frequency and intensity of migraine attacks can be reduced. To prevent migraine attacks from occurring in the first place, a healthy diet, regular endurance sports and avoiding stress are recommended. The latter can be achieved through behavioral therapy, in which negative thought patterns are reduced, or through relaxation techniques such as meditation.

For chronic and regularly occurring migraine attacks, various medications and painkillers are used. An alternative to these medications in the absence of a response to therapy is cannabinoid therapy with medical cannabis, which can be associated with fewer side effects, have a faster efficacy and act prophylactically to prevent attacks from occurring in the first place. Our specialized physicians will be happy to work with you to determine if cannabinoid therapy can help in your case.
