Migraines and Tension Headaches

Migraines and tension headaches can have different causes. Quite often different migraines are responsible for a mixed pain pattern.
This needs to be determined.

Initially, we differentiate between orthopedic and hormonal migraines:

The orthopedic migraine originates from muscular and/or bone structure malposition - in particular, of the cervical spine. This, on the other hand, is often caused by a malposition of the jaw or is based on a craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD). Various orthopedic measures are necessary to overcome this condition.

The hormonal migraine affecting women is often the result of a progesterone deficiency. It usually occurs at the end of the female cycle and results in migraine attacks.

In this case, a hormone replacement therapy with nature-identical hormones can reduce the symptoms or even eliminate them entirely. Hormones are also essential for the healthy performance of the brain (memory and concentration). They keep us young and fresh!

In our practice we only work with nature-identical hormones based from yam roots or organ dry specimens. In accordance to your specific problems and needs, we create an individual formula which is then put together by a pharmacy.

Possible attendant symptoms of an "aura" are:

  • Visual impairment
  • Sickness and vomiting
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Light sensitivity

Nitro stress and oxidative stress: Along with routine laboratory results, we measure the oxidative and nitrosative stress levels. These may be further reasons for migraines.

Food intolerance may be another reason for migraines and needs to be determined and removed.

Measures based on the five pillars of Chinese Medicine such as acupuncture, acupressure (Tuina) and herbaltherapies can strengthen body and mind. Orthopedic tensions and Qi stagnation can be removed - even in case of acute migraine attacks.
