Women and men both suffer from severe headaches and migraine caused by food allergies and stress, but women additionally have migraines because of their monthly hormonal changes.
In fact around two-thirds of women report having migraines at the onset of their period. For many women, migraines become a problem after puberty … and have a tendency to decline after the menopause.
According to researchers, the main non-hormonal trigger for migraines in men and women can be food. Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine and fermented foods are often cited as the culprits. Others say they think that oranges or chocolate can trigger a migraine.
Now a growing number of people are turning to something called a ‘Daith piercing’ in the hope of curing the pain level of migraines, or at least reducing the pain level of their headaches.
Based on acupuncture pressure points, a daith piercing is in the cartilage of the ear. Women often make their daith piercing a jewelry accessory, but there are discreet piercings which can appeal to all tastes, both male and female.
If you’d like to see some photos of daith piercings, here’s a Pinterest page:
And if you’re more inclined to read about the science behind daith piercings, here’s a link to a study reported in the US National Institutes of Health which reported a: “highly significant trend in the reducion of the VAS (pain) value …” for people having ear acupuncture in the treatment of migraine attacks.
“I’ve seen a reduction in frequency and intensity of my migraines where nothing else seemed to help. My husband noticed it before I did (and that’s saying something). Maybe I just wasn’t willing to admit that it was actually working.
