Migraine sufferers frequently search for ways to put aside over-the-counter or prescription medications in exchange for something natural. Recent research reveals that magnesium is one mineral supplement that might help. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of magnesium as well as an often-overlooked underlying cause of migraines that points to another natural solution.
Magnesium is good for pregnant women who suffer from Eclampsia. It was in this way that the benefits of migraines were first realized because migraines are more common among women and pregnant women in particular.
Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant, and it also has benefits in regard to brain cell metabolism. Researchers recommended coupling magnesium with other supplements such as coenzyme Q10 and vitamin B2.
Migraines often begin following an injury to the head or neck, perhaps even a seemingly mild one. For many, the reason behind this is a slight misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae caused by the injury. The C1 and C2 are right at the base of the skull. They protect the brainstem and help facilitate blood flow to the brain. It is not hard to recognize that a misalignment in this sensitive area can cause a wide range of difficulties.
Upper cervical chiropractors had the training to precisely measure and correct misalignments of the C1 and C2 using a very gentle method. These low force corrections are nothing like the popping and twisting involved in general chiropractic and lead to far longer-lasting results. When the brainstem can function optimally and the brain is getting the right amount of blood flow, migraines may be reduced in severity or frequency. Some even see the problem resolve completely.
If you suffer from migraines, contact an upper cervical chiropractor in your area to learn more. We urge you, especially if you have any history of head or neck injury.
