    Even if migraines are psychosomatic, that’s just as real a cause as any organic origin. People are no more in control of their subconscious reactions than they are their thyroid’s output.

      Not the same thing. Due to neuroplasticity, psychotherapy can “rewire” pathways and positively change the brain environment to relieve somatic symptoms. For a simple example, if stress causes stomach aches, if you can identify and work through areas of emotional stress, you can relieve stomach aches. A good therapist can help locate those unconscious patterns and people do gain more control of it.
