Daith Piercing for Fibromyaliga and Migraine Relief
These terrible headaches can be triggered by everyday tasks, eating certain foods, or even fluorescent lighting and excessive noise. While scientists aren’t sure why they affect some people and not others, there doesn’t seem to be a “one size fits all” cure for them so sufferers are left to try pill after pill (neurologists often prescribe anti-depressants to relieve them) and treatment after treatment (from switching their diets, to acupuncture, to meditation, to yoga).
And while some of these alternatives help some, others are left frustrated- but eager for the next possibility…enter the “daith piercing”.The daith piercing is a small ring that pierces the inner cartilage of either ear, running through a pressure point, which for some will relive migraine and fibro pain. It is a relatively new procedure, mainly preformed at tattoo and piercing shops with not many statistics to back it up yet.Dave Kurlander, owner of the Tempest Artistic Studio in Hopewell Junction, NY performs the daith piercing on clients, and he truly believes it’s the way to go.“I’ve had many people come to me looking for migraine relief. It’s a much cheaper alternative to medicine and even acupuncture, and many of their doctors recommend it to them, and if you’re into piercings that’s even better.”
