What We Wish You Knew About Migraines!
- If everyone in your family gets migraines, there is still hope and treatment options for you.
There are some facts of life that are dictated solely by your genes that cannot be altered. For example, you are human and not reptile, you have similar features as your mother and father, or there are more left-handed people in your family than average. Your health and wellbeing are generally not one of those things. What we do, say, eat and think are the major dictators to your health. Upper Cervical Chiropractic is one of those things that you can do to change the destination of your health and migraines.
- Medications although powerful and helpful at reducing symptoms, but they are not fixing the migraine.
If you suffer from migraines you probably have been on many medications. At first the medication works and then perhaps it stops working or you must increase the dosage. Have you ever wondered why your medication stops working or decreases its effectiveness? The truth is medication was never meant to cure or fix your migraines. Migraines, like any other symptom is a warning that your physiology is not working properly. Your body is so smart and so powerful that it begins to adapt to the chemicals we put into it. So, when the medicine is designed to alleviate symptoms by changing the way your body functions, your body adapts to that change. Doesn’t it make more sense to look for the cause of the migraine not just put a cover over the symptom?
- Stress in not the cause of your migraines.
Although certain forms of stress are detrimental to your health, they are not the cause of Migraines. Lots of people have stress in their life, but not everyone has migraines. Stress might be a trigger for migraines so stress reducing techniques are appropriate for decreasing the amount of stress incurred on a regular basis.
- Migraines are a nervous system problem.
Migraines are caused by your nervous system not functioning properly. Your nervous system controls every function in your body, including: blood flow, pain modulation and hormone control. A migraine occurs with an increase of blood flow to the brain, which fires up the pain chemicals and signals in the arteries and veins. There may also be a change in hormone regulation increasing proteins and hormones that decrease the threshold of the pain signals. For example, some females see an increase in migraine activity in various parts of their menstrual cycle. These processes are both controlled by the nervous system. At Intelligent Balance Spinal Care, we objectively measure the nervous system and help improve the overall function of the nervous system.
