I have been a primary care health care provider in the field of Oriental Medicine for almost 40 years. I have been very successful in treating patients with various types of headaches including severe migraines with acupuncture, acupressure, herbs, meditation, and tai chi.
I have also referred many patients to neurofeedback which very good results. Yet, to my dismay, none of these modalities were able to help me when i started to get migraines myself.
I continued to get worse until I was having daily migraines. I friend of mine who is a rheumatologist told me about a company that had just started called Avacen- a new technology that increases microvascular blood circulation by decreasing blood viscosity- i gave it a try and within 2 weeks my headaches had decreased 50% and by one month i had 2 headaches.
My headaches went from 28 a month to 2 a month consistently from then on.
I use it twice a day, 20 minutes each time. I have recommended it to other patients who have had good results- not everyone has good results but it is a remarkble tool to have.
There are no negative side effects and only positve ones in terms of better circulation and less joint pain.
I would recomment it to anyone who is looking for another way to deal with their migraines.
