Your body needs balance within its interlinking systems in order to function normally. If an imbalance occurs as a result of stressor factors (from emotional stress to the physical stress of poor diet or lifestyle), it can result in symptoms such as migraines.
Migraines can occur in young adults, adults and mature people, and can be very debilitating, with pain ranging from mild to severe, acute or even chronic, and with symptoms recurring in some cases for years.
But restorative medicine can help you regain your body’s natural balance, together with a whole host of other benefits for your overall health and wellbeing, including overcoming migraines.
What is the bodily imbalance which causes migraines?
Almost all your organs are controlled simultaneously by the two nervous systems: the sympathetic nervous system, which is an energy-giver that controls ‘fight or flight’ and stress reactions; and the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps to calm your body back down and bring rest.
These in turn are influenced by four other systems: the neurohormonal system; the pineal gland (which balances production of the hormone melatonin and the neurotransmitter serotonin, both key to migraines); the digestive system; and the balance of magnesium ions (requiring a critical ratio of magnesium and calcium).
Migraines happen as a result of hormonal imbalance within the four subsystems, which then cause the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems to go out of tune. This causes nerve endings in the nociceptive system (the brain sector that controls the feeling of pain) to become irritated, reducing your pain threshold and making you prone to migraines. When you restore balance to these critical systems, your nervous systems can in turn be harmonised and – hey presto – no more migraines!
It is worth noting that the searing pain of a migraine can also be an early indicator that the menopausal process has commenced (perimenopause), if you have not suffered from migraines previously. This is primarily due to the fluctuation of oestrogens and progesterone levels at this time; two important female hormones that have to remain within a specific ratio in order to maintain balance within the body.
How restorative medicine can get you migraine-free
As mentioned in Chapter 1 of ‘The Menopause Cure: Hormonal Health’, an effective and natural remedy based on restorative therapy and an enhanced lifestyle has been developed by Dr Dzugan, co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of the Dzugan Institute of Restorative Medicine. Over 85% of his patients found complete relief of their migraine – even after 30 years of suffering. His cure also works to remove a host of other menopausal symptoms, improve quality of life and obtain positive longevity.
- The migraine cure focuses on tweaking the four interlinked body systems, also adding lifestyle improvements to complete the cure.
To tune up the neurohormonal and digestive systems, Dr Dzugan advises rebalancing specific hormonal levels using a bespoke bioidentical hormone restorative therapy programme, carefully tuned to each individual patient. Natural intestinal flora restoration and the cleansing of parasites is also paramount.
- The pineal gland’s control of hormone and neurotransmitter production works on a natural cycle that needs to be re-set in order to restore balance.
- Magnesium ion levels need to be tuned by balancing magnesium and calcium levels – both these critical minerals contribute towards migraines.
You can shake off the shackles of migraines by using bioidentical hormone restorative therapy in tandem with a healthy and balanced lifestyle. This requires a good diet, low stress and toxin levels, as well as an environment that is conducive to overall wellbeing.
Restorative medicine, when combined with a well-managed lifestyle, will not only remove debilitating migraines, it will correct menopausal symptoms, slow – and, in some cases, reverse – the ageing process, and help stave off chronic disease, letting you live life just the way you want to for a very long time!
