Here it comes again…the waves of throbbing pain, the nausea, the sensitivity to light…all the typical signs and symptoms that a migraine is approaching. There’s no stopping it and you know you’ll be feeling the effects of it for the rest of the day. It seems to happen at the most inopportune times and hinders you from living your life.
I hear this story again and again. Migraines are such a common ailment, yet many people are left without answers concerning why they happen and what to do about them. I’m here to tell you that there is hope, and without having to resort to prescription drugs and their many side effects.
Hormones & Migraines:
I have found that migraine headaches can often be a symptom of hormonal imbalance. I recommend having hormone levels checked, usually through a specialized saliva testing system that we utilize in my practice. Once results have been determined, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy would be used the balance the hormones, alleviating the migraine headaches, as well as a host of other issues in many cases.
Key Nutrients Missing in Migraine Sufferers:
Studies have found that people who suffer from migraines almost always have a deficiency of certain vital nutrients, particularly Magnesium, Glutathione, and Vitamin C.
Magnesium is considered the master mineral. It is involved with over 300 cellular metabolic processes. It affects our nervous system, muscle tissue, and heart health. In fact magnesium is used in the hospital for life-threatening and emergency situations like seizures and heart failure. Elevated blood pressure is also a migraine trigger for many. Magnesium deficiency has a strong link to high blood pressure. Magnesium reduces inflammation, relaxes muscles, dilates blood vessels, and modulates calcium ion channels within our cells, which trigger the release of neurotransmitters.
Glutathione is your body’s Master Antioxidant. Glutathione is a substance found in every cell in the body, where it acts as an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage. It has been observed that almost all people who have some form of chronic illness also have low levels of glutathione, including migraines.
Stress hormones can trigger migraines. Vitamin C helps to produce stress-relieving hormones and can be used as a preventative measure. Studies on people and animals who were given vitamin C, show that the stress hormone cortisol was drastically lower in people and animals given high doses of the supplement. This remained true even when they were repeatedly put under very stressful situations. Studies also show that blood pressure can show improvement with vitamin C.
The Best Delivery Method: IV Therapy
It is difficult for the body to absorb vitamin doses large enough to get the desired effect when taken orally. Since the stomach has a threshold of how much it can absorb, it is not possible to get enough of the vitamins into your bloodstream without by passing the digestive system. IV vitamin therapy is the act of delivering high doses of vitamins Intravenously. Intravenous delivery allows you to bypass the digestive system and get all of the vitamins directly into your bloodstream and delivered to cells! The body can also begin to use these vitamins instantly since there is no wait time for the vitamins to pass through your digestive system.
