I started getting Migraines as a kid and had them until only a few years ago. I had tried many things, but the one thing to truly reduce them (Maybe one a year, always after I've had to have opiate drugs for procedures due to Crohn's disease).
What helped me, cured me I would go so far as to say, was Bowen Therapy a body work that comes out of Osteopathy. It's not cheap, but at the time I used it for this, I was sniffing at least $50.00 a week of Imatrex up my nose, so I was spending money anyway, as I was getting headaches that would last 2-3 days with out the drug, and would come again 2-3 days later, I was wasting money on treatment that was at best relieving me of one migraine for another.
This is a finite treatment, in other words you should not have to go back for years. It's very gentle, very relieving, but may or may not be available in your area.
It seems re-aligning my body was what my head needed. I have a very fragile body, and this body work has helped me walk again. I will say, the day after an be a bit of a "things get worse before they get better" kind of day, but the days after that are amazing. Oh did I say, migraines are pretty much GONE? Yes, yes I did.
I cannot say how much better I am, except to say one migraine a year I can deal with, much better than 5 or more a month.
Wishing all the best,
