I love to share stories like this!
A boy with migraine headaches.
I want to share a story of the ability of the body to heal and recover.
A 16-year-old boy with a history of migraine headaches daily for over 6 years. This had not only interfered with his studies, but had influenced his participation in sports as well as other activities. Basically, it has influenced his whole childhood, outright stealing some of it away.
Answers …. this is what his mother was looking for. So far she has found none. What she has found is her son in an endless course of medication after medication with the promise of some relief, but not a full recovery. If this one doesn’t work, we’ll try another.
Medications are very good at treating the symptoms of disorders but are not designed for getting at the root cause of them. This is an important point to consider when searching for answers to chronic conditions. Don’t look for answers where there are none.
This is where a technique like CRA comes in. CRA or Contact Reflex Analysis uncovers imbalances and weakness within the body so that healing can occur.
CRA is not a form of diagnosis, it is an effective technique for analysis. By using reflex points on the body, proper analysis is exactly what we need in cases like this.
The default setting for our body is health, not disease. The body can heal itself when obstacles are discovered and removed, and imbalances are found and corrected. After that, just get out of the way and let our God-given innate power take over.
In this young boy’s case, chemical-laden food was removed and an imbalance within his elimination system was corrected. There was also a pinching of his upper spinal cord and brain stem that was discovered. Also corrected, using chiropractic.
Within 2 weeks there has been a very significant reduction in his migraines. His pain level was an 8-9 out of 10 daily and he now reports a 1-2 pain level. He says that he has even had some pain-free days. Talk about significant.
Migraine, a scary diagnosis indeed especially for a child. Scary diagnosis because it usually means that you will be suffering from them for a while if not indefinitely and will go through a gamut of medications. All of this, without an answer about the cause or worse, any solution.
Scary for a parent of a child suffering with a migraine, because of the feeling of helplessness.
A migraine is a specific type of headache usually accompanied by neurologic symptoms such as:
- visual changes (an aura)
- severe head pain
- symptoms of stroke
- sensitivity to light, sound and even smells
- nausea and vomiting
- classic one-sided head pain
The cause of migraine headaches is yet unknown in medicine, but can have several triggers.
Triggers such as:
- hormonal changes
- loud noises
- food sensitivities
- and stress
Lifestyle changes, especially eating a clean diet (one free of chemicals), can aid in the management of migraines.
There does seem to be a family history of suffering from migraines, which can suggest a genetic propensity, but can also indicate a common household habit with foods and drinks. (Ie. consuming synthetic sugars and prepackaged food with MSG) Both are known for their neurotoxic effects.
Genetics can influence a metabolic pathway dysfunction which must be overcome by diet and supplementation. An example would be the MTHFR gene that controls methylation pathways that are important for metabolism.
Migraine headache can be a very complicated clinical picture, but it doesn’t have to be a lifetime sentence of pain and missing out on life.
CRA can provide answers, like it did for this boy.
