If you are anything like me, you may get the odd headache from time to time and reach for a paracetamol to sort it out.
There are however millions of people who suffer with more serious headaches. These headaches or migraines often involve pretty harsh and painful symptoms that come back regularly. Many people turn to homeopathic remedies in an effort to naturally heal themselves.
One of the easiest and most effective treatment methods for migraine is called auricular acupuncture. This is an all natural way to alleviate the chronic headaches by getting a specific type of ear piercing.
The treatment is quite similar to reflexology which stimulates a reflex point that helps to regulate abnormalities between different body parts. The difference with this piercing method however is that different parts of the ear are stimulated either manually, by pressing finger tips on certain points, or by using needles. One of the main acupuncture points on the ear is located exactly where the daith piercing is done as in the image below.
The piercing is done through the little bit of cartilage near the hole in the hear canal. A ring is put through a pressure point commonly targeted by acupuncturists and thus mimics the effects of acupuncture, which leads to migraine relief for many people. It is almost like receiving acupuncture constantly.
The other benefit of the piercing is that it can look pretty cool and could be passed off as a fashion accessory. Little does everyone around you know that this little ring is actually doing wonders for your health.
