Buffalo, NY Chiropractic Care of Headache and Tips for Headache and Migraine Prevention

Headaches and migraines are unwelcome visitors. Headache sufferers are typically very ready for tips on how to prevent them. Migraine (a primary headache) sufferers over the age of 50 find themselves part of a global community with migraine being a leading cause of disability. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center has some prevention tips and treatment relief ideas just for our Buffalo, NY headache and migraine sufferers.

DIET AND WEIGHT

A healthy diet feeds the body and the mind. Researchers have described that migraine triggers appear in a variety of forms - environmental, hormonal, and dietary. A high-quality diet effectively helps handle migraine. Further, and more specifically, women with chronic migraine had a lower diet quality than that of women with episodic migraine. (2) A new study was even more specific with the type of diet beneficial to migraine patients, particularly those who are overweight. A very low-calorie ketogenic diet was found to be preventive of episodic migraines. Usefulness was observed within one month of the diet change. (3) The Novelli Wellness Center is not recommending that any of our patients try a certain type of diet now! If a Buffalo, NY headache sufferer wants to try a new diet, The Novelli Wellness Center is here to discuss and determine which diet (if any special one) is appropriate.

NUTRITION: Vitamin D

In much the same way, vitamin D supplementation is presented. Vitamin D deficiency has been reported in 45% to 100% of migraine sufferers. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant features of vitamin D have initiated a look at including it in the care and prevention of headache and migraine. One study reported that trial doses of 1000-4000 IU per day reduced the frequency of migraine including the routine drug therapy. More research needs to be done, but vitamin D supplementation appears encouraging. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center studies the nutrition of each individual Buffalo, NY chiropractic patient and recommends supplementation when appropriate.

CHIROPRACTIC AND INTEGRATIVE CARE

Headaches of all varieties – primary headaches like migraine and tension-type headache – are frequent complaints brought to the Buffalo, NY chiropractor.
