Headaches are a cause of much grief and suffering for millions each year. One of the biggest sources of grief is not knowing the cause while trying to seek out headache treatment. This is why at Innovative Health & Wellness Group, we identify the root cause of your headaches and do not only focus on your pain. Tension, migraine, and cluster are the three main headaches. These each have different changes in body function, symptoms, and triggers.
We offer natural treatments to end headache symptoms once and for all. This not only minimizes your need for painful shots, surgery, and drugs, but also promotes overall health and wellness. Many people suffer with the pain and discomfort of migraine headaches. While medication may be recommended, it is not always able to alleviate the cause of the condition or its symptoms, and carries the risk of serious side effects.
The Two Most Common types of Headaches
These are the most common type of headache. They typically occur in a headband like pattern and are described as pressure or compression. These occur on both sides of the head and neck, but one side can be worse than the other. There are many causes for these headaches, but a few are: muscle spasms, posture, thyroid, fatigue, anxiety, stress, diet, and inflammation.
Though not as common as tension, these are more debilitating. Migraines are ultimately the result of energy failure within the brain. The areas that run of out energy correlate to the aura or symptoms you may have. This is why individuals can see zig-zags, smell things, have light sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. There are many things that can trigger this energy failure. Common sources are food, stress, anxiety, smells, sounds, lighting, insomnia, weather, and fatigue.
Eliminating the True Cause of Headaches
Dr. Erin explains, “We don’t treat headache pain with drugs that simply cover up the underlying problem. We take the time to discover the ROOT of the problem, bringing your body back into its normal state, eliminating your body’s painful neurological reaction – your headache symptoms.” Innovative Health & Wellness Group offers a holistic approach to healthcare. The focus is on supporting the body’s natural ability to heal, enhancing positive outcomes, and reducing the need for medication.
