Program for Headaches

Our Goal is to Identify & Eliminate the Cause of Your Headaches!

Possible Triggers:

Food allergies/sensitivities -common triggers include milk products, wheat, corn, oats, nuts, citrus, eggs, chocolate, sulfites, processed meats, cheese, soybean, yeast extracts, food additives (MSG, aspartame, nitrates, food coloring & dyes), perfumes, pollens, trees, grasses, weeds
Hormonal imbalances – PMS headaches can be due to imbalances in estrogen and progesterone
Nutritional deficiencies – low levels of vitamin B2, B6, magnesium and/or vitamin D
Neurotransmitter imbalances – low levels of serotonin and/or melatonin have been associated with migraines and headaches
Stress leading to muscle spasm & trigger points
Testing:

Allergy identification
Hormone levels
Vitamin status
Neurotransmitter levels (urinalysis)
Treatment:

Allergy elimination through acupressure allergy relief technique
Balancing hormones and nutritional status with natural products
Correcting neurotransmitter imbalances with amino acid precursors
Neurofeedback training (EEG biofeedback) has been shown through studies to change the underlying abnormal electrical brain activity associated with headaches
Massage therapy to help the body maintain an optimal level of relaxation and stress-relief, reduce muscle spasm and trigger points and increase cervical range of motion
Testimonials:

“For years, my son struggled with migraines. He continued to get worse until he was eventually missing one to two days of school per week. We actually pulled him out of school and placed him in a partial homeschool program because his migraines were so debilitating. After two weeks of neurofeedback for other issues, we realized that his migraines were gone! In addition to helping with his focus, and some speech issues, my sons migraines are obsolete. It’s been over a month and he hasn’t had one! This therapy was life-changing for us!!”
