Those who experience migraine will know it is a severe headache, causing a throbbing, pulsating or hammering pain on one side of the head, often around one eye. Nausea and vomiting can occur, and some people experience a warning ‘aura’ up to an hour before an attack. The aura may include visual symptoms (eg shimmering or flashing lights, strange zig-zag shapes or blind spots), numbness or tingling on one side of the face, and sometimes speech difficulties.
Migraine is estimated to affect as many as 1 in 10 adults, with three times more women affected than men. The causes are not fully understood, but brain scanning studies suggest that migraine is associated with over-excitability of brain cells, possibly due to an underlying low level of inflammation. This produces changes in blood flow in response to certain triggers so that nerve tissue within the brain become congested, leading to the symptoms of a full-blown migraine attack.
There is growing interest in the use of magnetic therapy as a non-invasive way to reduce the frequency, intensity and duration of migraine headache. Magnetic therapy can be used together with your migraine prevention and treatment medication.
“I have used magnetic therapy for over twenty years, and found personal benefit from wearing a Trion:Z bracelet that generates both a magnetic field and negative ions. Although many people like to rubbish the use of these innovative approaches for well-being, I urge you to try it for yourself and form a genuine opinion without jumping to a knee-jerk conclusion.” – Dr Sarah Brewer ,
