The problem with medications is they’re basically “quick fixes” that are short-lived and leave you open to potentially dangerous side effects, many of which are just now coming into focus due to new research being released.
Other treatments like physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, and even chiropractic are often ineffective, again, because they stem from a misdiagnosis or do not address both the cause and triggers at the same time.
Understand The Cause, And You’ll Understand The Solution
Migraines can seem complicated, but they are actually very simple. There is only 1 main cause for migraines: Neurological Dysfunction. There are 3 main triggers: Dietary, Musculoskeletal or Hormonal. To treat migraines effectively, you need to address both the cause and all 3 triggers at the same time. The reason you have probably been unsuccessful with migraine treatment is because your practitioner was not trained to deal with both the cause and all 3 triggers. With this precise combination of therapies and treatments customized to your brain and body, you could be out of pain very quickly.
The way general practitioners are trained is to basically learn the checklist of symptoms that constitutes a disease. Then, once there is a diagnosis, choose a medication that is required for that diagnosis.
This type of care can be effective for straight-forward illness or injury, but does not address pathophysiology of complex and chronic diseases, such as migraines. It is treating the symptom, not the root cause.
The approach of a general practitioner is extremely effective for emergency or life-threatening situations, but not necessarily functional or chronic issues.
Also, this does not just go for general practitioners… Most alternative medicine practitioners use this method too! For instance, if you go to an acupuncturist, you are going to get acupuncture. If you go to a chiropractor, you are going to be adjusted. Same with many other types of treatment practices.
A Functional Neurologist has several different types of treatments in their tool belt. For this reason, the doctor is able to zoom out and examine a patient objectively, and, therefore, treat the patient in the way that is BEST for that individual.
