Do you Suffer from Migraine Headaches?
If you suffer from migraine headaches or any type of chronic pain, searching for ways to avoid or stop the pain is a constant struggle. Due to the complexity of migraine and other types of pain, there is no one solution that works for everyone.
In a recent study, participants were randomly assigned one of three diets for 16 weeks. The control diet contained typical levels of omega-3s and omega-6 fatty acids; the second increased omega-3 intake without altering omega-6s; the final diet raised omega-3s and lowered omega-6s. During the 16 weeks, participants recorded their headache frequency and severity. At the end of the study, the two groups with increased omega-3 intake reported significantly lower headache frequency and when they did experience headaches, they were shorter and less severe. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in a wide range of foods, such as salmon, seeds, avocado, and walnuts.
Our pharmacist can discuss professional-grade omega-3 fatty acid supplements as well as customized prescription therapies to manage your migraine headaches or other chronic pain conditions. Even if you don’t suffer from migraine headaches, the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are far-reaching.
