Relieve migraines with
a special ear treatment
Migraine headaches can be completely debilitating. They can cause temporary blindness, dizziness, nausea, and extreme pain. So the results of a new study are great news for anyone who suffers from these terrible headaches.

In this study, the researchers wanted to find out if acupuncture could relieve the pain and other symptoms of migraine headaches. What they found will surprise most conventional doctors.

The researchers took 94 women who suffered from migraines and gave them two different types of acupuncture. They found that needling the “sciatic” point in the ear was not as effective as needling the appropriate points on the ear for head pain. The authors concluded that a physical representation of your body does exist in your external ear. They also found that these points render specificity to ear acupuncture if the acupuncturist does it appropriately.

I love acupuncture. Years ago, the first private hospital where I applied for privileges forbid me practicing acupuncture. Why? At my “interview” (more like an inquisition), an extremely hostile orthopedic surgeon (who did scores of reckless back surgery) asked what the AMA position was on acupuncture. Well, the year was 1983, and I honestly answered “placebo.” Needless to say, he didn’t care about science or clinical experience.

Many years have passed and acupuncture is now widely accepted, but not likely in that hospital. Here we see the migraine headaches can be remedied in women with appropriate needling.

Lots of people continue to say that acupuncture is a placebo. If it were, sham needling should achieve the same effect. It doesn’t. We see that the right use of acupuncture has real results.

That blustery one-size-fits-all (surgery for everything) orthopedic surgeon has since passed on. I do hope that his reckless attitudes regarding non-invasive methods have passed on as well from that Anchorage hospital.

Please consider acupuncture as a reasonable alternative for migraine, or in fact, any pain. It’s far, far safer than chemical and knife treatment. And it’s often more effective.
