If you suffer from migraine headaches,
youíre not alone. As many as 28 million Americans and
many more worldwide suffer right along with you.
Migraines are caused when blood vessels in your head
constrict for anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour and
then expand rapidly. Why does this happen? Some doctors

brain. Everyone who suffers from this debilitating wants

do it naturally.

rid of migraines is acupuncture. Studies show that
patients who use acupuncture as a migraine treatment get
fewer migraines, and those they do get are much less
painful. Another plus: no side effects. Afraid of
needles? Not to worry. Acupuncture needles are really
fine wires no bigger around than a hair and you wonít
even feel them.
Relaxation exercises can also help you
get rid of migraines. Try sitting comfortably in a chair
with your muscles as loose as you can get them. Flex the
muscles in your forehead as hard as you can by furrowing

out. Do this several times, and if you picture your head
releasing the pain each time you release the muscles in
your brow, youíll get even better results.
