My Story: I Tried The Daith Piercing To Stop My Migraines

The main focus of the doctor visits were more about my lifestyle and home life than finding a cure. I was asked if I was depressed, abused, in a bad relationship, was I being bullied, did my parents fight, were my siblings mean–every question under the sun!

After several CAT scans and MRIs I was told that my brain was beautiful and they couldn’t see any damage, so unfortunately they didn’t have an answer as to why this was happening to me. The only suggestion I was given was to try several different migraine medications until we found the right one, and take some antidepressants because they will help as well.

I went along with the doctor’s plan and tried all of the medications except the antidepressants because I knew that I didn’t want to become dependent on those type of medications, especially since I wasn’t depressed. Unfortunately, none of them worked. I had all kinds of adverse reactions to the drugs, so I stopped taking them altogether.

Daith Piercing: Alternative Remedy

Fast-forward 20 years and here I am, still suffering. Over time, I’ve seen other doctors, had more tests run, and to this day no one has been able to provide me with a root cause for my migraines, and unfortunately, there aren’t any known cures that will get rid of them.

Since I’ve gotten older, the frequency of my headaches has increased to at least 2-3 per week, making my life extremely miserable. In searching for alternatives to provide me with some relief, I came across a post online stating that there was a piercing I could get that was helping others with their migraines and I became immediately intrigued.

The daith piercing has been recommended for migraine relief because it is the piercing of the innermost cartilage fold of the ear, and by doing so, you will target pressure points on the body’s surface to provide relief just like with acupuncture. While there aren’t any medical studies that prove this to be the cure we all have been wishing for, many migraine sufferers have stated that they have gained immediate relief from getting this piercing done. I did a ton of research on other websites, blogs, vlogs, and just about everywhere I could, and so many people were reporting that this was the help they had been searching for and that it has truly been one of the best decisions they could have ever made.
