Scientists from the University of Arizona College of Medicine have found a new effective way to treat migraine – green light.
According to the BBC, the study found that regular exposure to green light it is possible to reduce the frequency and intensity of chronic headaches in patients.
In just two and a half months of such therapy (two hours every day), the frequency of headaches in most of the participants in the experiment decreased by at least two times . Participants also noted a decrease in pain intensity (from 8 to 3.2 on a scale of 10).
Previously, scientists found that blue and green light had an analgesic effect on experimental animals.
