A lot of people complain of headaches and migraines. Sometimes the pain is bearable, but, in certain cases, it is splitting, pushing the patient to the threshold of agony. Migraines are characterized by intense discomfort, mild to acute throbbing and pressure in the head. Migraines are the result of an allergic reaction to certain substances, foodstuffs or environment. They may also be caused by a malformation of the brain or of the skull. Skull malformations may be congenital or acquired, as a result of accidents and various traumas. From the point of view of traditional medicine, cutting through the route of the meridians or deviation of the meridians may lead to migraines. If the energy of one of the meridians is interrupted, the functioning of the meridians is faulty, and the result is migraine.
Hormones have their part in migraines. In the case of 58% of the women suffering from migraines, the disorder is linked with the menstrual cycle. From a scientific point of view, although they haven’t come to a final conclusion yet, the matter was discussed that the estrogen level in the body could play a fundamental part in the burst of migraines.
The women taking contraceptives are predisposed to migraines. Magnesium deficiency in the blood is another predisposing factor. Likewise, drugs prescribed at an early age and taken inappropriately are yet another cause of migraines.
Another factor leading to migraines is the displacement – even if a very small one – of the cervical vertebrae. Their movement occurs in those persons who spend a lot of time talking on the telephone and in those who read in bed or watch TV in a reclining position.
Stress is a major factor in aggravating the symptoms of migraine. Symptoms that precede a migraine are the discomfort and the tingling affecting one side of the head, respectively lights or interrupted lines appearing in the visual field. Should a patient monitor these states carefully, he will see that, in 30 minutes at the most, there will be a migraine bursting.
The difference between headaches and migraines is that, in the case of migraine, the pain affects only one side of the head. Migraine is often accompanied by vomiting, fatigue, nervousness, hypersensitivity to noise and light and nausea. In this case, the patient must go to a traditional medicine specialist so he could have prescribed an appropriate treatment for his disease, one based on herbal extracts and acupuncture .
The traditional medicine specialist must see what things his patient is allergic to, so he could take appropriate measures and ensure healing.
Migraine is one of the disorders that are extremely difficult to treat. Taking into account the complexity of the human body, the treatment isn’t easy, either. In this case, as in other cases as well, the treatment is a new situation which the traditional medicine has successfully solved in the course of time. History tells that even Cesar had unbearable aches and, according to the documents found, it is generally assumed that he suffered from migraines. In his frequent trips to Egypt, he was successfully treated of this disorder by means of traditional medicine.
