They say you’ll never understand the pain of a migraine unless you actually suffer from them. After all, ask any migraine sufferer and she’ll tell you they’re more than just a ‘bad’ headache.
Now researchers from the University of Copenhagen are adding their voice to the argument…
Study reveals: Migraines can cause permanent brain damage
And that conclusion’s pretty frightening when you consider statistics shows as many as 15% of the global population suffer from migraines.
Luckily, if you’re a migraine sufferer, you don’t have to just cope with them. There’s a natural treatment that’s proven to cut migraine occurrences by as much as 60%.
Foul-smelling flower delivers relief for migraine sufferers
It’s all thanks to a stinky flower called butterbur.
In a study published in Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, researchers showed “butterbur may have the power to relieve migraine pain and even stop new migraines from developing! In one study, 60 migraine patients received either butterbur extract or placebo for 12 weeks, and the folks in the butterbur group saw their migraine frequency diminish by an unbelievable 60%,” explains Dr Jonathan Wright, the natural health specialist behind Nutrition & Healing.
Well, as we explain here, butterbur contains highly powerful anti-inflammatory and spasmolytic (muscle-relaxant) effects that work wonders on migraines.
Bottom line: Migraines can be controlled – and, in light of the Copenhagen study, doing this should be your top priority.
