What is a Migraine?
Let’s start by defining what exactly a migraine is! Different from a headache, migraines are an extremely painful disorder. They can cause an array of symptoms, from light and sound sensitivity to nausea. What triggers a migraine can vary from person to person. But some of the most common triggers include high-stress levels, lack of sleep, physical exertion, and even certain foods. Preventing migraines starts with identifying your triggers and avoiding them. But once a migraine has started your focus should shift to finding a remedy.
Chronic Migraine Treatment
A migraine here and there is one thing, but those who suffer from chronic migraines can experience a diminished quality of life. It can cause you to miss out on a variety of experiences, as well as school or work, leading to mental issues such as depression. This is why Vida-Flo offers IV therapy for migraines, to help you live life to the fullest. Intravenous hydration can help treat migraines in several ways:
- Adequate hydration – Water, plain and simple, is a great way to prevent a migraine from common triggers. Including dehydration and exercise.
- Vitamin B & C – Including these essential vitamins in your treatment can help reduce inflammation, and some of the pressure you feel, as well as the duration of your migraine.
- Magnesium – A lack of magnesium is sometimes linked to migraines. By adding it to your IV solution, it may reduce light and/or sound-induced migraines.
- Medications – Medicinal inclusions may also be added to your bag, to prevent side effects like nausea and vomiting. Anti-inflammatory medications can reduce pressure and the pounding sensation that many people experience.
