Non-drug therapy for the PREVENTION and TREATMENT
Do you suffer from migraines? If so, you know all too well how negatively they can impact your life. Migraines can be frequent, severe, and debilitating.
But what actually happens to your brain when a migraine attacks? What is going on in there? Why is it so severe, and is there a way to reduce or stop migraines?
What happens to the brain during a migraine?
Scientists at one point believed migraines were primarily a vascular disorder. It was thought that the migraines were caused by blood vessels on your brain dilating and then contracting. This then generates the pulse of pain that people experience.
Now, scientists realize that migraines are a neurological or brain disorder. With migraine sufferers, their brain is overly sensitive to information. This is often incoming sensory information that would not usually affect other people. For migraine people, this information becomes a "trigger" and starts the migraine process.
This can include:
- Sudden exposure to bright light
- An intense smell
- Certain foods
- Intensive exercise
- Various medication
A migraine trigger can happen anywhere at any time. Figuring out your migraine triggers can be difficult, making migraines unpredictable and frustrating to deal with.
As mentioned, each migraine is thought to start with some sort of trigger. This activates the nerve cells within your brain. Once activated, messages are sent along the trigeminal nerves via the neurons.
The trigeminal nerves are a major pain pathway. They stretch across your entire face, including your teeth, eyes, forehead, sinuses, and blood vessels on your brain's surface.
Blood vessels innervated by the trigeminal nerves, cause the pulse-like pain felt by those who suffer from migraines.
Painkiller for migraines?
Some medications can help to relieve the symptoms of a migraine attack. They help prevent common symptoms like pain, nausea, sound, and light sensitivity.
One, however, must be aware of Medication Overuse Headaches. Prescription Migraine drugs, such as the commonly used Imitrex, can induce headaches if taken 9 times or more per month for several months. Even Aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs can cause daily headaches.
Does the migraine stopper work for migraines?
Yes, it can! And there are no drugs or drug side effects involved. The Migraine Stopper can be used as an abortive therapy. So as soon you feel a migraine coming on, start using the Migraine Stopper.
In addition, The Migraine Stopper can be used with the goal of prevention. This is done by using it daily when you don't have a migraine.
How does the migraine stopper work?
The Migraine Stopper works by using gentle and precise positive and negative air pressure in your ear. This Migraine Stopper has a special valve that creates a specific airflow, to allow a specific push and pull effect on the ear canal and eardrum.
Moving the ear canal and eardrum in this manner stimulates two nerves, the trigeminal and vagus nerves. These two nerves have been known to help with migraines by science for over a decade.
Stimulating these two nerves can calm down the area of the brain stem where migraines originate from. An overly active brain stem is thought to be a significant factor in migraine attacks.
There is a wealth of research on the trigeminal and vagus nerves. Research shows that they both may play prominent roles in a migraine attack. The Migraine Stopper stimulates both the migraine fighting nerves at the same time.
Neuromodulation, the future of non-drug migraine therapy
The Migraine Stopper is a neuromodulation device. What is neuromodulation? This is the successful activation of a specific nerve for a positive patient outcome. Which, in this case, is migraine relief!
Research shows that nerve stimulation of the trigeminal nerve and vagus nerves can have a neuromodulation effect that calms down the brain stem where migraines originate.
The Migraine Stopper was born out of 5 years of clinical testing. The product is based on the research found in the clinical trials published in Functional Neurology Rehabilitation and Ergonomics.
How long does it take for migraine relief?
The Migraine Stopper gives you full control of the situation when a migraine attacks. It's simple to use and may reduce symptoms of your migraine within 15 minutes or less.
