Migraines, in many cases, can be linked to exhaustive and prolonged stress. The brain shuts down as a defense mechanism, and normal functioning ceases to exist. Your body is actually trying to help you, but if you've had a migraine before, it's hard to understand how that is possible.
Unfortunately, common medication treatments for migraines are either not quick enough or completely ineffective. Botox® has been shown to be effective in certain situations, but is a temporary solution.
According to the Migraine Research Foundation, over 12% of the population suffer from migraines. It tends to run in families and is seen as the eighth most disabling illness in the world.
From extensive research using EEG Neurofeedback/Biofeedback on patients with migraines, it has been found that there is an excess of high, fast-wave activity in the brain. This frequency is trained easily using Neurofeedback, which is combined with Biofeedback training to ensure lasting calm and relaxed states. The powerful combination has shown great results in reducing the frequency and severity of an individual's migraine headaches, and oftentimes eliminating the headaches altogether.
