Say Goodbye to Headaches and Migraines

Over the last month or so, I have had many clients visit my office seeking help for migraines and headaches. Since so many people suffer with this debilitating condition, I thought it would be a great discussion topic. 

There are many reasons why one suffers from headaches and/or migraines. I believe most people could eliminate their pain if they knew and understood what was causing it. In my opinion, conventional medicine really misses the boat because the treatment is geared only toward dulling the pain, which does not in any way address the problem.

I am amazed by how many people actually experience and live with such pain. Headaches can be serious and may indicate some serious problems within the body. There is nothing normal about your head hurting and feeling like it is going to burst. And taking a pill is not going to solve the problem. Moreover, heavy or long-term use of some medicines, including ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin, can cause chronic kidney disease.

To get rid of headaches and migraines for good, you must understand and address what is causing the pain. Let me assure you that the pain in your head doesn’t just happen without a reason. I believe our medical system does not look at what I believe are the primary causes of the pain, but instead focuses only on the pain. Pain meds are prescribed, pain management is offered, Botox is injected, and the list goes on.

This is absurd. Imagine driving your car and the check engine light comes on. You pull into the nearest gas station, wait, and then the attendant says he fixed the problem. You get in your car and see that he put a piece of black tape over the light. Would you continue to drive the car? The check engine light is not the problem - the engine is!

Do not just treat the pain, instead you must get to the root of the problem. In my clinical experience, headaches and migraines stem from poor digestion and digestive problems, which the patient may or may not recognize. You do not necessarily have to have digestive symptoms.

Finding a Root Cause

There are simple tests and reflex points on the body that can be tested. Headaches can stem from food sensitivities, which is different from food allergies. Poor blood sugar balance and hormone imbalance, especially in women, are also very common causes. Among the most overlooked causes, which conventional medicine does not even consider, are misalignments of the spine and poor posture.

Another key factor is the location of the headaches and migraines, which can be indicative of where the potential problem may be. Typically, pain in the back of the head is caused by poor spinal alignment, poor posture, and digestion. Pain in the temporal region is oftentimes hormonal. Pain in the frontal region is often due to food sensitivities.

Supporting healthy hormone balance, maintaining healthy digestion, addressing food sensitivities, and correcting any misalignments of the spine and posture can very well be your answer to ending your headache and migraine suffering. No drugs, no pain management, just a simple natural approach to ending your pain and suffering. I see successful outcomes every week in clinical practice.
