According to the World Health Organization (WHO), migraine attacks are the eighth cause of loss of work and performance in the attack period among all lifelong diseases. Therefore, effective treatment of migraine attacks is important for the patient and the socio-economic wellbeing of the community. More than 90% of migraine patients experience acute migraine attacks despite prophylactic treatment and need pain medications.

Headache is a common complaint that is seen in 70-80% of the population and is a common health problem in emergency services. People who experience migraines and dehydration headaches often rely on medications to continue being productive through their pain. However, IV immunonutrition therapy has been proven the most effective way to get rid of your symptoms fast.

What triggers migraines?

There are many factors that could trigger a migraine. 

These can include:

  • Lack of sleep, 
  • Continued stress,
  • Certain foods — such as aged cheeses, aspartame, some wines, and processed foods
  • Sinus Problems
  • Genetics
  • Change of weather
  • Dehydration
  • Sun glare, 
  • Intense physical exertion, or 
  • Hormonal changes. 

While there’s a multitude of pain-relieving and preventive medications, some patients fail to obtain relief. When this occurs, your doctor may suggest lifestyle changes, such as staying hydrated, exercising regularly, and incorporating relaxation techniques. If traditional treatments are not alleviating symptoms, IV immunonutrition therapy may be a good option.

IV Immunonutrtion therapy for Headaches and Migraine Relief

Intravenous infusions (IV therapy) can provide relief from migraines in several ways. They provide hydration, electrolytes, and vitamins that are delivered directly into your bloodstream. This means faster and more effective relief than taking oral medications. IV therapy also suppresses overactive nerve endings, as well as targets each individual symptom — inflammation, pain, and nausea — at the same time. Each infusion therapy can last between 60 – 90 minutes.

IV infusion therapy works by targeting several different processes in the body at once, and this makes it very effective for migraine relief. 

  • IV infusion therapy provides immediate hydration. Dehydration is one of the leading causes of migraines because it can cause low blood pressure, which often leads to headaches. By providing immediate hydration, IV infusion therapy helps prevent or alleviate dehydration-induced migraines.
  • IV infusion therapy also delivers electrolytes and vitamins directly to the bloodstream. This is important for migraine relief because many people with migraines are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals. For example, magnesium deficiency is a common cause of migraines, so providing magnesium through IV infusion therapy can be very helpful in preventing or treating migraines. 
  • Supplying electrolytes can help alleviate migraines caused by electrolyte imbalance.
  • IV infusion therapy delivers medications directly to the bloodstream. The medicine soothes the inflammation in the brain that is thought to cause migraines, and it also targets the proteins responsible for overactive nerve endings. Blocking these proteins calms the nerve endings and stops the process that causes migraines. Plus, the large dose of medication that you get through an IV drip can help to stop nausea caused by migraines.
  • In addition to migraine relief IV therapy may promote increased energy levels, as well as boost your mood and promote relaxation.
