Migraines Around the World

[fa icon="calendar'] Feb 20, 2017 12:07:51 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim

Migraines around the world. And at home. 
A world wide review of migraine prevalence found the highest rates in Central and South America at 16.4% and the lowest in North America at 9.7%. Migraines affect 1 out of every 10 people and are twice as common in females. Increasing prevalence in chronic health conditions such as chronic pain, sleep disorders, depression, and hypertension can lead to an increase in migraine prevalence because of the known multi-morbidity between migraines and these chronic health conditions. 
For migraines we offer a variety of I.V. Nutrient Therapies as a stand alone treatment and in complimentary conjunction to our Ozone Therapies

We can individualize your treatment further by adding in specific injectable homeopathics. Tell us how you are feeling and we can address your symptoms. Are your headaches affected by weather changes, tension in your neck, low blood sugar, food allergies or sensitivities, constipation or something else? Do you have any preliminary symptoms that tell you you're about to have a migraine headache?

We can help you re-establish order in your biochemistry to reduce the frequency of headaches. We offer full testing in CT. to find the root cause of your headache.
