In All Health Watch, Featured Article, General Health by INH Research

It’s happened to all of us…

That moment when a pounding headache digs its feet in the sand and makes you feel like you’ve been hit by a tractor-trailer!

Your head is throbbing in pain… you’re extra sensitive to light… you have trouble seeing… and you even feel like vomiting!

Most folks reach for over-the-counter medicine for relief… but, that relief NEVER comes quick enough!

Fortunately,ut you don’t have to suffer any longer.

Because there’s new research that proves a drug-free, ‘needle’ therapy can help eliminate those pounding – and debilitating – headaches once and for all!

Real Headache Relief with Acupuncture?

According to a recent study published in the journal Neurology, acupuncture can help reduce tension headaches – which are characterized by a “pressing” or “tightening” feeling on both sides of the head.

That’s right, this ancient, homeopathic ‘needle’ treatment could unlock the key to helping your body fend off pounding headaches AND preventing a dependency on OTC painkillers.

Studies have found that acupuncture is a wonderful, preventive treatment for many health conditions and symptoms, including hypertension, insomnia, and even knee pain.

And now you can add headache relief to that list!

To examine the effects of acupuncture on headache relief, study leaders looked at over 200 people who were diagnosed with tension headaches, experienced them for an average of 11 years, and had 22 days per month with headaches on average.

Over the course of two months, these folks were given either 20 acupuncture sessions, or 20 “incomplete” sessions (when the needles didn’t go deep into the skin).

And believe it or not, BOTH treatments provided relief… but the real acupuncture was a game-changer.

More than two-thirds of the patients in the full-octane acupuncture group had at least a 50% drop in headaches. And that relief lasted at least SIX MONTHS after the final acupuncture session.

In other words: They experienced FEWER overall headaches, and LESS frequency of headaches!

If you’re considering acupuncture (or even if you’re skeptical about it), there are a couple things to consider.

First, discuss it with your doctor first, and be sure to find a licensed acupuncturist. You can look for one here.

Second, most major health insurance plans – including Medicare – now cover acupuncture! This means seeking acupuncture won’t put a dent in your wallet. Just be sure to check what your acupuncture benefits are with your insurance provider first.
