I was diagnosed with migraine back in 2008 and since then, I’ve tried homeopathic remedies, including the one I’m sharing with you today. Each time I’ve tried it, I’ve found relief, and I’m grateful for any kind of pain relief I get. The only problem with these remedies is that they can’t really get rid of the pain of a migraine. All they do is make the migraines worse.
Here’s the deal. Many migraine remedies simply give you more pain. Many of them take your headache to the next level and only leave you with worse headache. The problem is that migraine remedies can be dangerous because they can also have side effects.
For instance, many of them have been linked to cancer. The problem is that they do not tell you right away which migraine remedy you should or should not use. If you use one too often, or get one too much, you could get migraines that are worse than the ones you have right now. They have the risk of cancer, but can also cause a number of other serious health problems.
This is the problem with homeopathic painkillers. They don’t tell you right away that they are not safe for you. They say “it might cause side effects” but then don’t tell you about them. This is why you should always talk to your doctor before you take an over-the-counter painkiller.
Painkillers should come with a warning label that says something like “Migraine may cause vision loss.” But the problem is that that statement is not always true. People who have had migraines have said they were so terrible that they had to sleep on their stomach and eat ice cream for some reason. So you could have migraines and still not realize that the painkiller you’re taking isn’t safe for you.
That’s why homeopaths are such a great idea. They can actually give you migraine relief without having to warn you that the pain is dangerous. One company, Commedica, even suggests that you take a pill with a different name (Homeopathic Migraine) to get the exact same effect. The idea is that the pill contains a dose of a natural substance that can cause a migraine to happen.
Homeopathy, like all alternative medicine, is not recommended for everyone, but it can be a viable therapy for some people. Not only can it cure migraine headaches but it can also reduce pain. The only issue is that you have to be sure when you take the medicine to not over-treat. The idea is that you take enough of it for the pain to lessen not to the point that you feel like youre getting a whole lot of medicine.
The first symptom we’re given is a migraine headache that happens when you take a dose of the pill you’re given. If the headache reduces, then we can assume that you’re doing the right thing. But we can’t just stop there. If the headache is still pretty bad the next step is to get you to a doctor. But we’re not given any details of what the doctor should do about it.
While the medical profession is very aware of the relationship between migraine headaches, they are not well versed in homeopathic migraine treatment. Homeopathic medicine is still in the very early stages of trial and error, and as such is not fully tested or regulated by a governing body. A lot of the homeopathic doctors we’ve seen have questionable medical credentials and questionable experience, and are not exactly a fan of the pharmaceutical industry.
Homeopathy only works for so long. As the FDA takes a look at homeopathic medicine, they will probably also look at the effectiveness of pharmaceutical migraine treatment. Many homeopaths are convinced that pharmaceuticals work even better than homeopathic treatment, so they will probably try homeopathy first. The FDA doesn’t have a problem with this, as they know that homeopathic medicine works, and is FDA approved.
