Those who suffer from migraines know that very few negative experiences hold a candle to that nauseating feeling as if your head is squeezing your brain while a 5-pound weight perches on top of it. While some have found medical remedies that relieve the pain, others are still on the lookout.

Those in search of a cure who also love edgy piercings and jewelry will be thrilled to learn that daith piercings just might be the ultimate migraine and headache cure. While nothing has been proven yet, claims of the daith piercing remedy have surfaced on the Internet lately.

People with the piercing have taken to social media in support of the claims, assuring their followers that the daith piercings really have provided them with headache relief.



In light of the buzz around the piercing, Dr. Thomas Cohn took to his blog to discuss the connection between migraine relief and daith piercings. He wrote:

"Recently, some people who have received a daith piercing have coincidentally found improvement with their migraine headaches. It is not universal, and it is has not been studied formally. If a person enjoys ear piercing and suffers from frequent headaches, it may be worthwhile to consider getting this spot pierced. Since body piercings are generally less than $100, this may be a very economical treatment alternative."


Apparently new beauty trends are doubling as health remedies these days. If you're up for the task, perhaps try out a daith piercing and see what happens. It just might be the cure you've been searching for.
