Title (EN) USE OF AN ODORANT FOR TREATING HEADACHES
(FR) UTILISATION D'UNE MATIERE ODORANTE POUR TRAITER LES CEPHALEES
Abstract:
(EN) Use of an odorant is provided for alleviating the symptoms of a migraine or other form of headache. Also provided is a method for preventing or reducing the symptoms and/or duration of a migraine or other headache through the administration of a hedonically pleasant odorant that is inhaled by a person who is prone to or suffering from a headache. A preferred odorant is one having the characteristics of a green apple scent. Preferably, the person is presented with the odorant at a suprathreshold concentration, and inhales the odorant for about 5-15 minutes while in a prone position in a quiet, darkened room.
(FR) Utilisation d'une matière odorante pour soulager les symptômes de la migraine et d'autres formes de céphalées. La présente invention concerne également un procédé permettant d'empêcher l'apparition ou de réduire les symptômes et/ou la durée d'une migraine ou autre type de céphalées par l'administration d'une matière odorante agréable à l'odorat qui est inhalée par une personne souffrant de céphalées ou sujette aux céphalées. La matière odorante préférée possède les caractéristiques de la senteur de la pomme verte. De préférence, la personne est mise en présence de ladite matière odorante à une concentration supraliminaire, et inhale cette matière pendant 5 à 15 minutes en position couchée et dans une pièce calme et obscure.
