Abstract

This case report describes the usage of integrative cardiology tools including acupuncture to help mitigate cofactors such as migraines and headaches due to hypertension. The patient suffered from idiopathic hypertension since the age of 16 accompanied with daily, long lasting severe occipital and vertex headaches/migraines. The patient incorporated nutritional recommendations as well as started an exercise and meditation programme, and received a total of (13) acupuncture treatments, and was also prescribed a Chinese medicinal herbal formula. After completing (13) acupuncture treatments, the patient had no symptoms of the cofactors (occipital and vertex headaches, irritability, and short tempered) related to hypertension. Acupuncture could play a role in treating cofactors related to hypertension.
