Migraines and Other HeadachesIt is estimated that over 25 million Americans suffer from Migraine headache. Approximately four million suffer from one or more migraine headaches per week. Most migraine headache sufferers are women, although many men also experience them. From the older treatments for pain (such as ergotamines to the sumatriptan (Imitrex™) drugs of the 1990’s) to the beta-blockers and serotonin-blockers that are given to prevent migraine headaches, sufferers know that not all medicines work for them and that there is much that can be done with a complementary approach to the problem (using alternative therapies along with medications.) Often headaches can be short-circuited or their intensity lessened or their experience shortened with a variety of interventions. Dr. DeMasters has many strategies that can help migraine sufferers. She has an intense, personal interest in this area of health because she experienced migraines from her adolescent years onward, and says that she has personally field-tested many of her strategies for dealing with migraines. Migraines are not the only form of headache that Dr. DeMasters can assist with, muscle-tension headaches, sinus headache, and allergy headaches respond to therapies used by her patients as well.
