If You See Someone Who Has This THIS Type Of Piercing, Here’s What It Means
Have you ever suffered from intense chronic migraines? One of my former girlfriends used to get them incredibly bad, the type that left her unable to move or function regularly. Migraines are probably some of the most painful experiences we can have as humans.
The Migraine Research Foundation reports that about 18 percent of American women and 6 percent of American men suffer from migraines regularly.
Why do they happen? It’s been seen that migraines are the result of numerous complex neurological symptoms. Some of the worst migraines are accompanied by nausea, vomiting, disorientation, dizziness and extreme sensitivity to light and sound, making them quite dreadful.
While many have turned to pharmaceuticals for help, others have discovered an alternative treatment solution, and it has to do with piercing a particular part of the ear.
How it works
The ‘Daith’ piercing has been around for thousands of years, but it got its official name sometime around the 90s. The cartilage closest to the canal of the ear is where this piercing is located, looking as though the piercing actually enters the ear if seen from a distance. Acupuncture practices actually use this specific part of the ear as a pressure point if a person is plagued by migraines.
By piercing this part of the ear, blood vessels around the pierced location are opened up, helping to stimulate blood flow to connected tissues. While any research on daith piercings and migraine relief has yet to be published, numerous people have noted a decrease in migraines after having this piercing done on them.
So, if you have terrible chronic migraines and love body modifications, a daith piercing might be in your future!
