According to Alex Aponte, ...
According to Alex Aponte, MD, FACFM, Medical Director of the Ed & Phyllis Davis Wellness Institute, "Hormonal changes are a common migraine trigger for women.
Hormones regulate all body systems, internally and externally, physically and mentally, so an imbalance in estrogen and progesterone levels can trigger a migraine."
Proper nutrition, sleep, exercise, and stress management are all important for keeping the body in balance and preventing migraine.
"Massage is a wonderful way to relieve tension and manage stress to prevent migraines," says Dr. Aponte
"In particular, craniosacral massage, which is focused on the head, spinal column, and tailbone, can release tension and improve the functioning of the central nervous system."
The human body is complicated, and everyone is different.
That's what makes isolating migraine triggers such a difficult job.
