Migraines are a problem for 1 in 7 people and the majority of them are women. The Doctors examine if green light therapy can help.
We are joined by neurologist and headache specialist Dr. Lauren Natbony who recommends green light therapy to her patients. She says a recent study had participants use green light for 1 to 2 hours each day and found that after 10 weeks migraine severity and frequency were reduced by 60 percent.
She feels green light in any form can be beneficial to people suffering from migraines. It is believed the green light calms pains signals and hyperstimulation in the brain. She calls this type of light "calming, soothing, and can help the brain cool down."
She says the therapy can be used for 30 minutes to 2 hours each day to prevent a migraine and it might also help in the midst of a migraine -- especially if you are sensitive to light. She tells her patients to turn off all other lights and to only use the green light during a migraine.
