An Easy Migraine Technique Eliminates Attacks

An Easy Migraine Technique
Eliminates Attacks
A new study published in the journal Neurology reveals the amazing effect
of a simple practice.
Migraine sufferers eliminated half of their migraine attacks while also
reducing their medication by 50%.
In addition, they reported much milder migraine attacks with less pain.
The scientists recruited 114 people between 18 and 50, all of whom
suffered between four and 14 migraines per month.
They divided them into two groups: one that received medication only and
one that received medication plus yoga.
Before the treatment commenced, all the participants were asked to report
the details of their migraines, the severity of pain and other symptoms, and
the frequency of their attacks.
The researchers also provided both groups with medication and lifestyle
advice such as the need for exercise, healthy dieting, and adequate sleep.
The yoga group was then given yoga instruction for a month, consisting of
one-hour practice three times per week. The instruction included yoga
postures, breathing exercises, and meditation.
They then practiced yoga at home for five days a week for the following two
months, as verified by their instructors.
Throughout the treatment period, both groups were asked to keep a diary
of their migraines, frequency, and duration of attacks, the severity of pain
and other symptoms, the amount of medication taken, and so forth.
Both groups experienced an improvement, but the yoga group benefited far
The yoga group reduced their headaches from 9.1 to 4.7 attacks per
month, a reduction of 48%. The medication-only group reduced theirs from
7.7 to 6.8 attacks per month, a reduction of 12%.
The yoga group reduced their medication intake by 47% while the
medication-only group reduced theirs by only 12%, showing that yoga can
save you money too.
Lastly, the yoga group reported a larger reduction in pain than the
medication-only group did.
The problem with migraine medication is that the drugs make no difference
for many people; according to some studies, more than half of all people do
not benefit from them.
The main takeaway is that it is possible to significantly improve, and even
eliminate, migraines with the right technique.
For decades, I’ve been helping migraine sufferers treating their
condition using a practice somewhat similar to yoga breathing but
more effective. You can learn this easy practice in a few minutes
