Can Your Migraines Disappear With Orthomolecular Medicine?
Quantum Brain Healing gets to the root of the migraine problem before recommending the treatment protocol. The main causes of migraine headaches are stress, poor diet, neurotransmitter imbalances, endocrine hormone imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, imbalances in mineral levels between calcium and magnesium, pineal gland dysfunction, electromagnetic field imbalances and emotional trauma. It is possible for a migraine to be a secondary condition where the primary condition is a brain tumor. Migraine headaches are an important symptom of a brain tumor. A brain aneurysm can feel like a migraine. Migraines can accompany ADHD, epilepsy, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, heart disease, irritable bowel syndrome, depression and bipolar disorder. A comprehensive examination of your medical history and diagnostic tests must be carried out to rule out more serious problems before treatment.
Migraine headaches can be caused by food and environmental allergens. Avoid nitrates, MSG, artificial sweeteners, and foods high in tyramine, including red wine, cheese, and chocolate. Stay away from carbonated beverages, soy, peanuts, pickles, non-organic coffee, chocolate, food coloring, food additives, or refined foods. It is very important to include protein in your breakfast every day. Avoid all genetically modified foods and eat locally or organically grown fruits and vegetables. Include fresh salmon, avocado, walnuts, almonds and omega 3 and 6 essential acids in your diet.
Identify allergens in your diet and avoid them through dietary changes, including the GARD diet or the elimination diet. The rotational diet follows a different theory, which allows you to eat each food once every four days. The immune system calms down when not exposed to the allergen frequently. Gluten can be a trigger for many people with migraines. Try keeping a food journal for at least a month to identify the foods that might be your triggers.
Many people with migraines can have problems with pollution and environmental triggers. These can be avoided or eliminated through hard work. Otherwise, this can be counteracted by reducing stress and improving overall nutrition and health. Stress can be relieved by changing jobs, getting divorced from an abusive job, finding a new job, finding a new hobby you enjoy, volunteering, and watching comedy on TV or the movies. Stress can be reduced with yoga, tai chi and qi gong. There are several alternative therapies that can help with migraines, such as neurobiofeedback, hypnosis, homeopathy, and Bach flowers.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is excellent for improving migraines with patented herbal formulas and liquid herbal extracts that can be used in conjunction with ear laser therapy, ear acupuncture, scalp acupuncture and traditional body acupuncture. These therapies typically take two weeks to see improvement. The acupuncturist may recommend several months of treatments depending on how long you have had migraines.
