Natural Treatment for Chronic Migraines
Lifestyle Healing Institute® utilizes our method and protocol which measures over 100 quantitative based biomarkers revealing easily discernible, generalizable, and specific biopatterns for each abnormality. Neurological causalities of Chronic Migraines are mostly the result of an overactive brain as with Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, and Insomnia, however, underactive brain regions will still persist.
Our therapies focus on the natural cellular mechanisms that our brain and bodies already have in place, in order to heal disorders such as chronic migraines safety and without prescription medications.
Patients usually feel better after our 4-week treatment program, however some individuals stay longer if prescription medications need to be eliminated with our “walk down” approach which safely takes the medication down to zero with no withdrawal symptoms.
Chronic migraines can vary in severity, but it’s well known that these incidents greatly affect your everyday life. Most of the time they’re unpredictable and relentless; however, by analyzing an overview of how the brain is handling information you’ll realize it may not be so unpredictable. Many are extremely sensitive to weather, light, sound, and other triggers and as the brain becomes overstimulated or over electrified, it starts sending too many signals to target cells and tissues. This results in more pain and higher sensitivity to incoming pain signals.
Although chronic migraines aren’t always accompanied by widespread pain, the mechanism is extremely similar. As our brains become flooded with fatty toxins, our electrical signaling will increase, resulting in a brain that feels as if it’s on fire. Moreover, this often causes constriction of the blood vessels often resulting in higher blood pressure and sometimes chronic migraines.
This increase in electricity and fatty toxin accumulation leads to a marked drop in the body’s defense system (immune system). As the immune system becomes compromised, it leaves individuals extremely susceptible to any sort of infection.
Many health savvy individuals feel like Lyme disease is causing their disorder; however, without immune suppression, pathogens such as Lyme, babesia, and bartonella can’t make it past the bodies’ initial defense barriers.
This isn’t to say these pathogens don’t play a role in contributing to numerous disorders including chronic migraines; however, the underlying cause of pathogenic infection tends to be fatty toxin accumulation – see Mold Toxicity for more details.
Pathogenic infections such as Lyme disease make their way to the brain within 12 hours, further contributing to recurrent chronic migraines.
However, most of the time, the infection that has the largest contribution to chronic migraines isn’t Lyme disease, it is mainly intracellular (inside the cell) infections such as babesia.
Babesia and other intracellular infections tend to crawl within the cell (red blood cells) to wreak havoc to the body and brain. As the bugs begin to invade the cell, they increase the cell’s diameter (width). Red blood cells are about 8 microns in diameter and many blood vessels in the body can be as small as 9 microns (some are even 3 microns!). When babesia crawls within the cells, it will inevitably increase the cell’s diameter, resulting in difficulty in blood, nutrient, and waste transport through our bodies’ circulatory system.
This leads to increased blood vessel constriction and high blood pressure as well as Chronic Migraines. Just to give you an idea of the size of our cells – 1,000,000 microns = 1000 millimeters = 1 meter – our red blood cells tend to be about 8 microns. Some may notice the veins on the surface of their skin tend to be small and thin and may also have trouble receiving IVs or drawing blood.
In addition to increases in electricity, many migraines are due to poor blood flow or lack of oxygen in the blood, therefore when the brain or body is starved of oxygen, pain signals are generated resulting in a migraine. One of the most common causes and definitely the most overlooked is hypoglycemia. Sometimes helping the effects of migraines is as simple as eating an apple with almond butter before going to sleep, especially when the migraine occurs in the middle of the night.
In the end, the key to healing Chronic Migraines is utilizing our multifactorial method and protocol that adequately calms the brain and removes fatty toxins, restores proper blood flow and provides oxygen to these starving tissues.
Quantitative Symptoms of Chronic Migraines
- Excess Excitatory Neurotransmitters and Insufficient Blood Flow
- Suppressed Inhibitory (Calming) Neurotransmitters
- Overactive Anterior Cingulate Gyrus (conflict, rational cognitive center of brain)
- Overactive Deep Limbic System (emotional center of brain)
- Increased Blood Vessel Constriction – High Blood Pressure – Poor Oxygen Delivery
- Overlapping Pathogenic Infection – Babesia, Lyme Disease, Bartonella,etc
- Suppressed Magnesium
- Suppressed Potassium
- Suppressed Hormones – Especially Sex Hormones – Estradiol and Progesterone among others
- Extensive Autoimmunity
- Dysregulations in Blood Flow
- Autonomic Issues
