Over the course of his life, the average person will spend $50,000 out of pocket treating headache pain with over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Headaches cause decreased productivity, lower the quality of life and tolerance for everyday annoyances, and induce a myriad of other problems. Chronic headaches affect finances, jobs, marriages, kids.
Even if a person only gets one headache a week, he is still suffering with 52 headaches a year. That’s a month and a half of headaches!
Most people are quick to grab the nearest pain reliever or prescription drug, but what about side effects? Drowsiness, malaise, lack of motivation, sensitivity to heat, blurry vision, burning sensation, and other unpleasant feelings make taking drugs almost as burdensome as enduring a headache!
Pharmaceutical companies have introduced preventative medications for those with chronic migraines, but these companies admit in their own literature that results are not guaranteed…or even predictable! Side effects of the preventative medication include drowsiness, lethargy, and mild head pain!
Botox injections have become an increasingly tempting alternative to standard prescription pills, but the cost of Botox (which may not work at all for some patients) is $10,000 or more per year. That’s quite a price tag!
The key to effectively treating headaches is to find the underlying cause, and there are several different possibilities: stress, hormones, dehydration, toxins, and subluxations for starters.
