If you are struggling with intense or persistent migraines, chances are you’ll have tried many home or DIY migraine remedies.
If you are struggling to find relief or would rather treat the source instead of migraine symptoms, treatment from The Optimal Health Group can help. With our team, you can find the cause of persistent migraines and heal from the inside out – potentially preventing them from returning.
What causes migraines?
Put most simply, a migraine is a very bad headache with a throbbing pain generally found on one side.
They can last between 2 hours and 3 days and, according to the NHS, can come with a range of symptoms and warning signs, called an aura, which can tell you a migraine is coming on.
Pre-migraine symptoms can change from person to person but commonly include:
- Feeling very tired and yawning a lot
- Craving certain foods or feeling thirsty
- Changes in your mood
- A stiff neck
- Urinating more frequently
Aural symptoms shouldn’t last longer than an hour and can include:
- Problems with your sight, including seeing zigzagged lines or flashing lights
- Numbness or tingling that feels like pins and needles
- Feeling dizzy
- Difficulty speaking

Does The Optimal Health Group offer migraine treatment?
Traditional medicine for patients with migraines is sadly lacking.
Treatment can include migraine management, from living healthily by eating well, staying hydrated, exercising, plentiful sleep, and maintaining a balanced weight to avoiding lifestyle factors like stress, caffeine, and alcohol.
The most commonly prescribed migraine solutions also seek to treat symptoms instead of the root cause – helping patients in the short term but allowing the root cause to remain.
At The Optimal Health Group, however, migraine therapy focuses on rectifying the internal imbalances that cause limiting and persistent migraines themselves.
Focusing on migraine symptoms without looking for the underlying cause only offers superficial, symptomatic treatment – to be free of pain you need to understand what that cause is and treat that.
In this way, we can help you discover how to treat migraines themselves and potentially find a bespoke long-term migraine solution.
This allows you to live life to the fullest once more and move on from the endless cycle of migraine headache treatment and remedies you are likely to be relying on now.
