The success rate of the drugs and the massage therapy were both significant, and surprisingly similar. “sleep, rest, and posture were well used by both groups… both use of drug and massage [were] associated with relief of pain in migraine sufferers,” the study concluded.

In the study, researchers fed mice either a normal diet or a vitamin D-poor diet for ten weeks before exposing them to stressful situations.
