Did you know that a headache can be a signal that something serious is wrong? Or that a headache can be a message that a person’s stress level has exceeded that which his/her body has the ability to adapt to smoothly and healthfully?
Did you know that a headache can serve as a warning that you need to change, not just take a break, from certain goings-on in your life? Perhaps you need to deal with some emotional conflicts, or change your dietary lifestyle, or reduce your exposure to certain environmental toxins.
It goes without saying, of course, that there are many different descriptions of headaches, such as vascular, tension, migraine, sinus headaches, etc.
Let’s consider migraines. According to the Merck Manual of Diagnosis, the general physicians’ guide, the cause is unknown, but evidence now suggests that it is attributable to a generally transmitted functional disturbance of intra and extracranial circulation. Regional alteration in cerebral blood flow, due to intracranial arterial vasodilation, are known to accompany the migraine attack and might possibly be the actual cause of it.
Migraines can last for hours or days, with accompanying nausea and vomiting and sweating wherein the victim’s extremities tend to be cold and the victim also tends to feel great irritations and seeks seclusion.
Patients have described their experiences of migraines to me as beginning with a throbbing pain that quite often starts at the back of the head and then spreads around the entire side(s) of the head and centres itself above or behind the eye(s).
Migraines can come on suddenly and without warning and can be quite severe. In fact, they can be so severe as to make the slightest noise and even light unbearable.
Studies have shown that migraines in general are triggered by stress, or constipation, or allergies and, in some instances, liver malfunction. In my work and studies, I have found that migraines are often caused by insufficient oxygen to the brain, heavy metal toxins (such as from amalgam fillings) and also iron deficiencies.
In the final analysis, I believe that there is only one disease – and that is intestinal toxemia. All other symptoms I would consider to be resulting processes.
We’ve talked a lot in the past about the importance of detoxification of the upper and lower gastro-intestinal tract. Rid the body of toxemia — establish good breathing habits — drink properly purified water — have a reasonably balanced dietary lifestyle – always use the tremendous YU-CCAN products – and good health and well-being will almost surely be guaranteed.
