Dr. Kogan discusses alternative treatments for women with migraines.
We do have a lot of migraine patients, and we have a lot of different alternative approaches to offer them. A lot depends on the person’s history and on the way their migraine is expressing itself. Feverfew is a very helpful herb in approaching migraine on a daily level. It’s very easy to take. It can be taken either as a pill or as a liquid extract, and it’s something that is used preventively, not just to treat the migraines but to prevent them from occurring.
Another very popular homeopathic supplement we use is called a MigraSpray. It’s ubiquitously available. It’s something that’s administered in tiny little homeopathic amounts and is readily absorbable. It’s a sublingual spray used for both treatment and prevention of migraines.
We use magnesium supplements for prevention and treatment of migraines. We use hypnosis techniques and something called auto-training, self-hypnosis administration, and guided imagery.
