The Root Cause of Most Migraines: Electrical Dysfunction


Chronic headaches and migraines often stem from underlying electrical dysfunction within the brain.


In the presence of such dysfunction, emotional, biological, or hormonal stressors can overwhelm neuronal networks.


This overload of neurons can trigger a series of interactions with blood vessels, exacerbating migraines.


EEG-guided neurofeedback offers a promising approach to normalize electrical dysfunction, leading to significant reductions in chronic headaches and migraines.

If conventional medical treatments haven’t provided relief for your migraine headaches, or if you prefer to avoid or discontinue medication, neurofeedback might offer a solution. 

Neurofeedback training has shown to be highly effective in decreasing both the frequency and severity of migraines. By optimizing brain function, neurofeedback helps alleviate headaches, reducing their occurrence or intensity.

Study Show Significant Reduction In Migraines Using Neurofeedback 

In the migraine study referenced below, it was found that 62% of participants who underwent neurofeedback reported experiencing significant or complete improvement in their migraines.

According to the study, the majority of patients had a long history of migraine episodes and had previously attempted various pharmaceutical treatments before trying neurofeedback. During the study, most participants continued to take medications. On average, participants underwent approximately 40 sessions over a six-month period.

Of the 37 participants involved, 70% showed a reduction in migraine frequency by 50% or more, with only 16% showing no improvement. Among those who experienced improvement, 62% reported experiencing significant or complete relief from their migraines.

What’s particularly noteworthy is that all patients in the study had been reliant on medications for many years, yet still experienced severe migraines. These migraine cases represented some of the most challenging to address.

Other Symptom Improvements

Aside from migraine relief, a substantial number of these patients also saw enhancements in more than 50% of non-targeted symptoms, including anxiety, depression, focus, and sleep.
