Freedom from Migraines and Chronic Headaches is possible!
Migraine Headaches can be classified into two types: classical and common. The classical migraine is a headache that follows an aura or some type of spontaneous event such as numbness or tingling. The aura may be flashes of light, squiggly lines, or a halo effect. The common migraine does not have an aura associated with it. Most people who suffer from migraines suffer from common migraines-usually at a 3-1 ratio.
Scientists once thought migraines were caused by abnormally dilated or engorged blood vessels. Now, new imaging devices have allowed them to watch brains during migraine attacks, and scientists are discovering that sufferers have abnormally excitable brain nerve cells.
The latest research has yielded a mechanism called cortical spreading depression. Prior to the onset of pain in a migraine, the occipital lobes (back part of the brain) will have a sudden burst of activity, and then there will be an episode of silence or depressed activity. This resulting pain comes from either the brain stem activation or from blood vessels inflamed by rapidly exchanging blood flow or both.
I take a different approach to the treatment and prevention of migraines and headaches. After a specific neurological examination I determine which part of the brain and nervous system is not functioning properly. In many headache and migraine patients I find a high mesencephalic output. Along with a decreased output of the cerebellum. The cerebellum is in the back part of the brain and controls the involuntary spinal postural muscles. Resulting in tight muscles along the spine.
Specific metabolic testing is also a must. For example, Sensitivity to gluten, Glucose values, Adrenal Stress Index, Thyroid panel and Hormone imbalances are the most common. However vary from different patients.
I will determine the exact cause of your Migraines. I will then treat you with specific neurological and nutritional protocols.
That’s what makes me different from any other Doctor you have seen.
