my wife suffered with 5-6 migraines a week, only relieved after vomiting, passing out, and waking up the next morning. our children had to always tread lightly in the house, so as not to bother her sick in bed. this was while on strong migraine medication, to no avail. our answer finally came along in a chiropractic technique called "atlas orthogonal". after beginning treatment, she was able to stop taking the meds, which weren't working anyway, and now rarely gets a migraine which are much milder than they used to be. there are only 200 or so chiropractors who practice this technique worldwide, but it is well worth searching one out. apparently, getting the upper neck aligned properly allows blood to flow properly in and out of the head, and allows the nerves in the upper neck to work correctly. this seems to help migraines or tension headaches.
