09843c9

Research overwhelmingly shows that regular exercise lowers the risk for many diseases, enhances the functioning of virtually every physiological system in the human body and improves psychological well-being.

85. Helps to relieve and prevent “migraine headache attacks.”

I will be Posting a benefit every day – well, most days – from a list put together by Dr. Dave Phillips, M.D. He is an M.D. from Atlanta, GA who specializes in Sports Medicine. As a former All-American swimmer he knows a few things about exercise. He is also on the JuicePlus+ Health Advisory Board. He is also all over YouTube doing videos on JuicePlus+, exercise, and other health-related topics.

You can be healthier: this is list of ways exercise affects the body; think of them as motivational if you like.

Exercise Instead of Medication for Migraines

From the current issue of Dynamic Chiropractic:

“Exercise may be an option for the prophylactic treatment of migraine in patients who do not benefit from or do not want to take daily medication,” according to the authors of a recent 3-month study that suggests the two options are comparably effective.

In terms of the average reduction in migraine incidence, exercise was only .04 less effective than a daily dose of Topiramate (up to 250 mg/d). That means that they were essentially the same.

The exercise group worked out for 40 minutes, three times a week. I would have thought that they did cardiovascular exercise or a combination of cardio and circuit training, but to look at the title of the article (below) it isn’t clear what is meant by either “exercise” or “relaxation”. I guess one would either need to read the article or do an exercise that qualifies as relaxation… (Anything come to mind?)
