Natural Medicine for Migraines & Headaches

Headaches are among the most common sources of pain and discomfort people experience in life. Migraines are rarer but even worse, typically affecting one side of the head and debilitating the sufferer. At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, we offer natural medicine for migraines and headaches that’s designed to address underlying issues that may be causing your discomfort.

What You Need to Know About Migraines

It is believed that many sufferers of migraines have a genetic predisposition to the debilitating condition, and that women are three times more likely to suffer than men. Most sufferers will experience a migraine two or three times in a year, with each lasting anywhere from a few hours to a few days, so it’s important to have natural medicine for migraine headaches to help alleviate the pain.

Migraines can be triggered by a number of different factors, including:

  • Diet
  • Sleep
  • Menstrual cycle
  • Physiochemical factors (e.g. heat, noise, excessive light)
  • Stress and emotional factors
  • Genetic predisposition to migraines

By seeking natural treatment for headaches and migraines with Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, you can begin to enjoy a quality of life you might not have experienced in a long time.

While it’s likely that one person’s migraine symptoms will differ to the next person, the most common symptoms of migraine include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light (photosensitivity) and/or sound (phonosensitivity)
  • Impaired vision, such as seeing an ‘aura’ around an object or person
  • Noticeable sensitivity to smell or touch
