IV Drip For Migraine & Headache Relief

An IV Drip targeting Migraine and Headache relief has helped many of our clients as a stand-alone treatment. Whether your migraines have been part of your life for a while, or they recently started after a concussion event, the nutrients in an IV Drip can offer relief.

Some of the key benefits for migraine and headache relief are:

  • The nutrients can help decrease neuroinflammation reducing pain
  • Provides antioxidants and detoxification for cellular repair
  • Helps reduce the need for pain and nausea medications

Unless specified, every IV Drip at Higher Health starts with the following base ingredients before we add on for your specific goal:

  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Trace Minerals (Chromium, Copper, Manganese, Selenium, Zinc) 
  • B Vitamins (B1,B2, B3, B5, B6, B12)
  • Amino Acids (which promote cellular repair and optimal function)

To help specifically with Migraine and Headache relief, an IV Drip will include the following:

Additional Vitamin C – Vitamin C can act as a prophylactic agent against migraines as it has shown to reduce the risk of neuroinflammation after injury to the brain. This means it can target the inflammatory pathway to the brain that is associated with migraines.

Riboflavin (B2) – Vitamin B2 is effective as a prophylactic agent for migraines, meaning taking it prior to the onset of a headache or migraine can result in pain relief. This is the most researched vitamin to reduce the pain associated with migraines.

Magnesium – Magnesium has shown to benefit migraine symptoms in multiple studies. It reduces the need for pain and nausea medications associated with headaches and migraines. The American Headache Society claims magnesium is as close as it gets to the “miracle” headache cure. It has shown results in both acute onset treatment as well as for maintenance long term.

Glutathione – Glutathione helps detoxify the body and brain by clearing toxins and oxidants, which can be associated with migraines. It’s high antioxidant capacity can provide relief from headaches and migraines. Low levels of glutathione have been explored as a potential cause for migraines.

Frequency of Treatment:

Your frequency of treatment will depend on individual aspects gathered in your initial Naturopathic health consultation. 

In general, the recommended frequency for migraine and headache support is weekly or bi-weekly for 4-8 weeks, while monitoring your progress and adjusting accordingly.
