What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine and headaches
Headaches are pervasive in the United States, and many people suffer from chronic conditions like migraines and cluster headaches. Treatments for headaches often focus on drug protocols, which may offer temporary relief from pain but fail to address their underlying cause.
Naturopathic medicine can often relieve the root problems that cause headaches and migraines via dietary changes, reflex therapies, and other methods that focus on the optimal health of the entire body. These naturopathic medicine therapies may lessen the frequency of headaches, or even prevent them entirely, depending on the cause of the ailment.
Food sensitivities often contribute to headaches. 70% of our immune system is localized to our gut and if we are consuming foods that are causing inflammation, headaches can often manifest as a symptom. It can be daunting and confusing trying to figure out your food sensitivities on your own, which is why seeking naturopathic care is very beneficial.
Your naturopathic treatment may consist of a variety of treatment protocols that include:
- Dietary changes
- Nutritional and herbal supplements
- Chiropractic treatments
- Stress-reduction therapies
Your downtown Seattle Naturopath will perform a comprehensive examination to determine a protocol that focuses on your particular health needs and the type of headaches you suffer from.
