What Causes Migraine Headaches?
Imbalances in brain chemistry have a large range of effects on emotions, behavior, and brain circulation.
The size of the blood vessels in your head, as well as other functions, are controlled by signals transmitted along nerves. Neurotransmitters are the chemical substances that actually do the passing of signals along nerves. Normally, a part of your brain sends signals along the nerves to keep the blood vessels in your head at a constant size. However, if there are not enough neurotransmitters in the brain, to control the size of the blood vessels in your head, they will continually enlarge until they cannot stretch any longer. The enlarged blood vessels will create a tremendous amount of pain, hence, the migraine headache.
Serotonin and norepinephrine are the two main neurotransmitters used in the brain to control the size of blood vessels as well as other functions. These neurotransmitter levels can be diminished by allergic reactions, inflammation, poor absorption of nutrients into the brain, poor metabolism of nutrients in the brain, chemicals that deplete them, excessive depletion (over usage) lowering them or because there are not enough nutrients in the brain to produce more.
The loss of serotonin and norepinephrine may be quantified in three stages. Stage 1 is the first level below normal whereby insomnia is experienced. Stage 2 is the next lower level whereby depression is experienced. Stage 3 is the next lower level whereby a migraine headache is experienced.
Dr. Allocca spent 28 years developing the migraine protocol. He developed the world’s first and only biochemical model of migraine in 1997.
How Can Migraines Be Prevented?
Always consult with your Doctor before beginning or ending any medical program.
An individualized non-drug program can be developed for you to prevent migraines. There are various factors that complicate migraines. Each individual is unique and has different complications.
A thorough computerized evaluation is made utilizing symptoms, blood tests, and urine tests. A customized program will be produced for you to follow to prevent migraines and for general health. The system used for this evaluation is called “Orthomolecular Reprogramming,” (OMR) which was developed by Dr. Allocca.
