We want an easy way out of the migraine pain.
I suffered for years trying anything I could get my hands on to get relief.
After going through many health courses and learning what causes migraines and headaches I’ve been migraine free for 5 years now.
What is the tragus/
daith ear piercing and how does it work to stop migraines?
There are two ear piercings that are gaining a lot of attention in the migraine treatment world because so little is focused on dealing with the actual causes of migraines like neuronal excitation and inflammation.
The two piercings are:
There are some differences between the two but there is far too little scientific literature on either to make clear distinctions.
Daith piercing is the more popularly discussed method of preventing and relieving migraines and headaches.
The Migraine Professional community definitely vouches for
There is also little known about why they work or if they are simply placebo but here is what we do know.
Acupuncture uses similar areas to treat diseases which we will talk about further down…
These areas go through
Some conditions like depression and epilepsy have been
It’s fairly simple.
You find a reputable tattoo shop, get the piercing done and take care of it so that it heals well.
Some even advocate pulling on the piercing when you feel
A Huge Warning
Adding metal into your body is not to be taken lightly.
Providing you take care of the hole and it heals up well without infection and with a quality metal that won’t poison you…
It’s important to understand that our bodies are electromagnetic and run on biological electricity.
When we add a metal into our bodies tissues, we turn that metal into an antenna for any radio, internet or other electromagnetic frequencies in the area.
Our cells use a very small amount of energy to communicate with each other so when we introduce a large amount of stimulation into an area we develop chaos in the system.
The best materials to use to avoid this include insulating and neutral substances such as:
See the video below on one of the world’s most renowned health experts Paul Chek talking about the dangers of piercing, metals, implants
Which side is the best for
Generally what is recommended is that you get the piercing on the side that you experience the most pain on.
If we take what we know from the information above then we would make sure that if we have a
For the musculoskeletal system, compensating for tension on both sides is easier than just one.
This is especially important if we have an imbalance like TMJ which can be made worse by
There are some that say acupuncture is at work here and others not.
An interview on ear piercings with Dr. Foster says:
“”Yes I have heard of that piercing,” said Foster, an acupuncturist. “Whether it’s effective for all people suffering from migraines is an interesting question.”
Dr. Foster says it really just depends on the person and the type of migraine that they get. He says that
“There are zones on the ear that correspond directly to zones on the body,” he said.”
And acupuncture is well known to work for migraines and headaches of all kinds.
Even sham acupuncture works really well because needles have a huge placebo effect.
This study on acupuncture for migraine prophylaxis found
in the sham acupuncture group by 2.1 (2.5),
and the waiting-list group by 1.4 (2.5);
a greater reduction was observed in the true acupuncture than in the sham acupuncture group.”
My perspective is that it’s far better to use a systematic approach to health than just take shots in the dark.
It works much better and you know what’s happening so you can track and alter course for even more benefit.

Now we will talk about all the amazing and not so amazing reviews for these ear piercings and if they prevent migraines for others.
Now let’s see some reviews left in the comments of tragus and
These reviews are amazing, but what do the studies say?
Daith Piercing migraine studies
First off let’s start with one of the only actual scientific studies done on
This study presents a case of a

“After that, he experienced a reduction of migraine attacks, which became very rare, and infrequent, less disabling episodes of tension-type headache.”
But this doesn’t tell us much because it’s only one case.
The first is a survey done by
This shows that 41% experienced no change but the rest did.
This shows that 36% of people who participated and had the
The rest reduced or eliminated their migraines.
These studies are basically showing that it’s fairly 50/50 hit or miss.
What can we learn from this?
Taking all of this information into account, it’s important to understand that this little and seemingly insignificant piercing in the grand scheme of migraine can make a huge difference in a person’s life.
That said, it doesn’t seem to be addressing the cause of migraine that often goes untreated and can create neurological damage later on.
In my personal
Doing this alone often relieves migraines by half or more unless there is a deeper pathology going on.
But it’s simple, the body is always trying to heal and always attempting to repair
If we can remove what’s causing the damage and give the body the support it needs through its 6 foundation principles…
Then add in some supplements to fill in the holes and pain disappears.
When nothing else works, we need to learn simple steps we can take to heal our brain, recover our digestive capacity and fix our hormones.
This is exactly why I created the 10 steps program which takes you
Our brain is about 90% immune cells so as much work as we need to do for our neurons, we also need to fix our immune system or the inflammation will keep on coming.
