The World Health Organization (2016) estimated that:
• 303 million people worldwide suffer from migraines. Headaches are among the most common disorders of the nervous system.
• Nearly half of the adult population had at least one headache once in the last year.
• Headache disorders, which are characterized by recurrent headaches, are associated with personal and social burdens, disability, lack of quality of life and financial costs.
According to the National Institute of Health, Quantum Biofeedback is effective in the treatment of migraine and tension type headaches.
According to research from Harvard (2013) identifying the cause according to your biochemical individuality can help to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks.
Also, research by Mullally, Hall and Goldstein (2009), in particular, states that Quantum Biofeedback is an effective tool in treating migraine and headaches by reducing stress.
Studies according to WEBMD state that there are differences in blood flow in the brain during migraine attacks and in the pain-free periods in between. Using biofeedback training, a person can change the blood flow to the brain and better manage a headache. Most studies on biofeedback show that it makes headaches shorter and happen less often in children and adults.
While preventive drugs are available for extreme migraine sufferers, they can cause serious, toxic and unpleasant side effects. Quantum Biofeedback retrains nervous system responses to stress, one of the biggest triggers of migraines. It also helps relax muscle tension, and relieve pain, two intense components of migraines.
Quantum Biofeedback teaches you to control certain bodily processes that would normally be subconscious. After mindfully implementing awareness, you can learn to control these functions in order to relax, relieve pain, and improve your overall health. It is a technique that uses your mind to control your body. You can voluntarily learn to control functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension.
A Quantum Biofeedback Evaluation provides an assessment of 35 pages of factors and causes that may trigger headaches or migraines. With this analysis, instructions are given such as better nutrition, vitamins or herbs for optimal dynamic health at all levels for a more balanced and harmonized mind and body. Control of functions makes it possible to relax, relieve pain and improve the general health of the body.
Sessions with Quantum Biofeedback are also helpful in achieving a more relaxed state by converting brain waves from beta (anxiety) waves to alpha or theta waves to prevent a headache or migraine.
Relaxation training with Quantum Biofeedback slows down the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the stress response. The sympathetic nervous system is involved in regulating heart rate, blood vessel expansion and contraction, blood pressure, sweat production, sleep, and alertness. During stress, heart rate and blood pressure increases, sweat production increases, breathing becomes shallow, and adrenaline and other hormones are released, causing blood vessels to constrict and muscles to contract.
Deep relaxation reverses many of the physical responses that can trigger headaches. Additionally, during deep relaxation, the relaxed person takes fewer breaths per minute, yet breathes more deeply. This results in “bathing” the blood cells in oxygen, which means more oxygen gets to the muscles and to the brain. Increasing oxygen supply to the brain seems to help prevent headaches. With practice, deep relaxation changes your body’s response to adrenaline and other stress hormones so that it takes a greater disruption from life stresses (and the stress response) to trigger a headache. Becoming deeply relaxed not only helps reduce headache frequency, but it can give a greater sense of self-control as well as decrease irritability, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and blood pressure.
It is suggested before a Quantum Biofeedback Session to have a complete microbiological examination analysis and a MRI (a test that makes clear images of the brain without the use of X-rays) to confirm that the symptoms of individuals do not stem from pathological causes.
