Headaches & Migraines Naturopathic Treatment
As a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Tali`s approach to treating migraines is through a very in-depth intake and investigation to get to the root cause of your headache. The goal of the migraine treatment is to reduce pain and severity as well as prevent future episodes of reoccurrence. Some blood tests and other diagnostic testing may be beneficial, based on the individual case. If necessary, such may include Food Sensitivity Testing and Adrenal Hormone Testing. Female Hormone Testing may be relevant if your migraines are related to your hormonal imbalances. Dr. Tali will also assess you for nutrient deficiencies.
Migraines have a huge psychological and stress impact, while it’s important to address the root cause, it’s also important to improve quality of life during the investigation process. Dr. Tali, a Toronto Naturopath, strives to give her patients relief as headaches can be debilitating. This will be done using evidence based herbal medicine, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, diet, supplements, nutrition and lifestyle modifications.
A note on conventional medicine – while medications may be beneficial for a quick relief of symptoms, they can be addicting and many do overuse them, which can cause rebound headaches. It’s important to get to the root cause and treat whatever is causing your headaches rather than just put a band-aid solution to your symptoms. Naturopathic Medicine also has effective well researched therapies to provide relief for headaches, that have been determined to be as helpful as pain medications.
