Picture this. You’re going about your day when, all of a sudden, your head starts throbbing. You start to feel nauseous and lightheaded. The sun seems a too bright. So does the light in your office. And any sound triggers the pain even more. It becomes almost impossible to focus because the pain is so debilitating. Yep, you probably have a migraine. And if that scenario sounds a little too familiar, you’ve probably experienced more than your fair share of them.

If you suffer from chronic migraines, you know having one will completely wreck your day. Forget about being productive at work or enjoying an afternoon with your kids. All you’ll want to do is curl up in a dark room until it goes away. Who really has the time do do that?

It’s time to start treating the causes instead of just reacting to the symptoms. So, let’s get to the source. What’s causing you to constantly feel like there’s a clamp squeezing your head? The root of the problem probably has something to do with your lifestyle. Stress, dehydration, and even lack of sleep are all causes of migraines. In addition, medical conditions like anxiety disorders and sleep apnea could be playing a role as well.

When you feel one coming on, your first instinct is probably to dig through your purse for whatever painkillers you can find — ibuprofen, acetaminophen, what have you. But have you ever stopped to think about the effect these pharmaceuticals could have on your body? Especially when taken frequently. Overuse could actually do damage to your kidney and heart health.

The best way to treat and, more importantly, prevent your migraines, is to consider options that can act as alternatives to drugs. IV Lounge offers four all-natural migraine remedies:

  • IV Therapy: If our name didn’t already give it away, IV therapy is what we’re known for best. Our infusions contain a mixture of vitamins and minerals to hydrate your body and keep it in peak condition. In fact, just one liter is the equivalent of drinking two gallons of water. Plus, intravenous injection means your body will directly absorb the solution.
  • CBD Oil: An extract of the cannabis plant, CBD oil has many of the benefits of marijuana without the psychoactive properties that get you high. Some of the positives include reduced pain and inflammation, more restful sleep, and decreased stress and anxiety.
  • Relax Shot: This is an intramuscular shot specifically designed to relieve anxiety, ease muscle tension, and promote relaxation. The shot contains magnesium, which can help lower blood pressure and prevent migraines, and theanine, an amino acid that naturally reduces mental and physical stress.
  • Infrared Sauna: Infrared saunas use radiant light to directly heat body tissue, resulting in a deep, therapeutic sweat. Along with soothing inflammation and easing muscle tension, spending thirty minutes in the sauna will help you get a great night’s sleep.

Don’t let migraines be the boss of you. Take control and start focusing on your proactive health. By making lifestyle changes like getting better sleep and staying hydrated, and incorporating one or two of our all-natural migraine treatments, you’ll be on the path to a happier, healthier life.
