Headache treatment

Why cannot modern medicine solve the problem of headache?

In spite of the annual reports announcing the appearance of new diagnostic devices and analgesic medications, patients suffering from headaches continue to exist in two states: a state of having a headache or a state of just having had a headache. Looking for a cure they walk from physician to neurologist and then from neurologist to neurosurgeons and so on without getting any results.

The only explanation for this phenomenon is that

the diagnosis of the causes of headaches is carried out in a wrong direction, and the prescribed treatment is unable to cure the headache.

The classification which is used in ordinary hospitals has a descriptive character and does not reflect the causes of headaches.

At our Center of traditional Chinese medicine “House of Health” we have developed a method of treatment which is based on finding and eliminating the causes of the disease and their systemic connections — the Complex Systemic Therapy.

The major principles of the Complex Systemic Therapy of headaches:

  1. We think that the headache itself is not a primary pathology. It is always only a signal from one or several body systems about the emergence of serious disorders.
  2. Our treatment is targeted at improving the health level of all body systems, while the most important vital organs are the first to restore.
  3. Our treatment of headaches has a long lasting effect as it eliminates the cause of the disease.

And now let us take some letters as an example and find out how the headaches are treated in the country’s medical institutions and what results of such treatment are (some materials are taken from http://www.consmed.ru).

Hi. I have been sick for about 9 years. But only 8 months ago I was diagnosed with a simple migraine. Before that I had been treated for ESP at all major diagnostic centers in the Altai region. I had been feeling worse. I have severe pain in one side of my head, nausea, and vomiting. Only Amigrenin and its analogues help relieve the pain. I have a headache almost every day. The headache may appear in the morning or may be triggered by sunlight, overwork, fast walking, i.e., the causes may be different. I was prescribed Amitriptyline, but it slows down the heart rate. Fevarin does not suit, Vazobral does not help. Analgesics and Amigrenin cause heart rhythm interruption and rapid pulse. I feel so bad I cannot go out and attend medical consultations. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and CT scan show that all is normal. Tell me, please, what protective treatment can help prevent the headaches, as I know my disease is incurable. Thank you.

Our comment:

As we see, medications have only a short-term effect and do not prevent development of the disease. Drugs also produce toxic effect on various body systems. The most awful thing is that, having lost their faith in the efficacy of drugs, patients begin to think that they cannot be cured at all.

Thank you for help. If drugs are ineffective, then, tell me, please, what I am to do. I have already been living in this state for three years. And I feel only worse. I am writing to you out of despair. Perhaps, there are no good doctors here in our town.

Our comment:

You are right there are so few doctors who can treat these ailments. We offer a two-week Complex Systemic Therapy course at the traditional Chinese medicine Centre “House of Health”.

Female, age: 40, St.-Petersburg

Hi! Tell me, please, if neuralgia and neuralgia-trigeminal refer to the same disease. Different therapists made different diagnoses: one doctor set ciliary ganglionitis, another diagnosed neuralgia-trigeminal inflammation. As I understand, the treatment of these diseases is purely abstract, because having ganglionitis I was getting only physiotherapy treatment: 2 courses of electrophoresis with Pentamin in the nose and Eufelin on cervical vertebrae. The therapy did not help. So I went to another healthcare physician. He diagnosed neuralgia-trigeminal inflammation. I was prescribed Fenlipsin and Piraksikam. I took two courses of treatment, but nothing changed. I would like to know if it is possible to get rid of this ailment forever, as because of this pain within 5 years I turned from a normal person into a hysteriac. Four years ago I underwent a brain MRI procedure, had CT scan of the orbits, CT scan of the sinuses, had blood vessels of the brain and cervical spine examined and had MRI of trigeminal nerve. All the results show that I am healthy except some minor malfunctions that do not count. A doctor who carried out the trigeminal nerve MRI said that MRI does not show inflammation, it can only show solid formations. Honestly, I still do not understand what I should be treated for. But I want to get out of this state very much. I am suffering from headaches, I feel pain in my eye (the ophthalmologists say that this is not the type of disease they treat), bright light is annoying, eyes are constantly swollen, the pain is dull and sometimes it goes from the nose deeper behind the eye, one side of the nose swell as if I have caught a cold. I cannot put on make-up as I want to wipe it off immediately. And all that is true only for the left side of my face. Sometimes I feel that skin near the eye and a bit lower the eye is hot. But most depressing is that at these moments I become stupid: nothing interests to me, it is difficult to read or think and to live a normal life. Sometimes this state ends up in a fit of hysterics. Without any cause I snap at people around me. Often I spend half of the night crying. At night the pain is so fierce, that I do not want to live any more. I know I lose the ability to work, because I cannot work on the computer as the pains in my head, in my eye and in my face become stronger. I know that you cannot make a diagnosis without seeing a patient. But perhaps you might recommend me a specialist in St.-Petersburg whom I could apply to. Thank you in advance. Helena.

Our comment:

Ciliary ganglionitis, neuralgia-trigeminal inflammation - these diagnoses look different, but they require practically the same treatment, i.e. painkillers. It is a standard therapy for the standard diagnosis. According to statistics it helps to a certain percentage of patients. But what about those who did not get into this percentage? So, the only way out is to look for a specialist who is able to assess the condition of the entire body.

Hello! My husband is 30 years old. He suffers from severe headaches. He has always had headaches since he suffered a concussion. But now pain appears in twinges. When the spasm begins, his blood pressure rises, he has to stay in bed and can hardly speak. He takes analgesics (a mouthful of them at once), then falls asleep and sleeps for about 20 minutes, and when he wakes up the pain disappears. He has to repeat this procedure 2-3 times a day. He has had a brain MRA scan. Conclusion: MR pattern of hydrocephalus with the presence of changes of CSF-containing cysts character. Unobstructed communication between the fourth ventricle and Cerebellomedullary cistern (Cisterna magna) of the brain. Variant of development of the circle of W illis. Decreased blood flow to the intracranial segment of the right VA. Pathological tortuosity (kinking) of both the VA.

Our comment:

The diagnosis does not show the cause of the headache (there is neither cyst nor tumor). The surgeon has nothing to cut away, drugs help only to relieve the spasm, but they do not prevent a new twinge of pain. One cannot take pills every day all one’s life. It is necessary to find and to eliminate the cause of pain. This can be done with the help of Systemic Diagnosing.

Hello! More recently I've started getting headaches in the left side of my head. I constantly feel anxiety, chills. I also noticed that my left eye seems to be larger than the right eye. I underwent some treatment: intravenously Aktavegin, Tiatriazolir, intramuscularly Meksidl. No improvement. Please, tell me what to do. Thank you.

Our comment:

A headache is accompanied by false sensations and distortion of emotional background. In the mean while this patient is healthy, but further medication treatment without stating the causes of the ailment will lead to permanent psychic disorder and dependence on psychotropic medications. Such treatment, even if it gives some relief, will not eliminate the cause of the disease. Though weakening some consequences of the disease drugs cannot prevent manifestation of other disorders. It is necessary to reveal the cause of the illness and aim prophylactic measures at it. “General strengthening” therapy chosen at random will not be effective.

Hi. I am weather dependent. I always have a headache before it rains. The pain is not very strong and never lasts long, but it may return several times a day. Sometimes (very seldom) I have migraine. I am interested why it happens. It had never happened before I was 18. Among the diseases that might be “involved” I can mention intracranial hypertension and neurocirculatory dystonia (because of hormonal malfunction).

Our comment:

Intracranial hypertension is a sign of persistent blood circulatory disorders. Neurocirculatory dystonia and hormonal imbalance are the signs of several body systems disorders. Homeostatic regulation of physiological processes has been disturbed. What medication can restore homeostatic regulation and eliminate the headache forever? Such a medication does not exist. It is impossible to find a drug that would be neutral for all the rest of the body systems and would cure the headache. Drugs are specially made so that their therapeutic effect and side effects could be easily predicted. The attempt to control all disorders of several body systems with the help of various medications may result in harmful drug interaction. When more than six drugs are taken simultaneously their interaction is impossible to control. So the conclusion is: the only real way to radically solve the problem of headache is to restore homeostatic regulation of the body and harmonize all body systems functioning. This is the method that we offer for the treatment of headaches.

For the last two weeks I have noticed, that I have become very inattentive at work. I have to do the same documents over and over again, 5-6 times a day! My chief is very much displeased with me. And by the end of the day I feel like a squeezed lemon. Could you recommend me a medication to restore my brain working efficiency. I have been taking Glycine, but with no result!

Our comment:

Whether this consumer attitude to one’s brain correct? Do we have the right to make it work as a lazy servant? If the body is healthy it always strives for activity. If it is not healthy, we should discover the cause of weakness.

Female, age: 20, Votkinsk

Hello. I am 20 years old. My blood pressure rises as high as 140/90. Sometimes I have spasms: I feel compression in the back of my head, jaw and tongue become numb, my heart rate increases, I breathe with difficulty. I cannot understand what is wrong with me.

Our comment:

These are unmistakably the signs of several body systems disorders. In this case a headache cannot be cured by analgesics. Systemic Diagnosing is necessary and the Complex Systemic Therapy must be applied to normalize functioning of all the disturbed body systems.

Female, age: 32, Samara

For more than a year I have had severe headaches. My physician prescribed sedatives and analgesics (Hrandaksyn 1 pill 2 times a day, Fezam 1 pill 3 times a day). I have been taking the medications for 2 months, the result is zero. The doctor says I have psycho-emotional stress (episodes), vasoneurosis. He says I do not need to visit him. What shall I do? Who can help me? The ache does not cease, sometimes I feel dizzy.

Our comment:

In these cases sedatives are like cognac, which is given to the watchman to prevent him from giving the fire alarm. Dizziness combined with headache is a very dangerous sign of serious cerebral circulation disorder. We could restore this patient’s health without using any medications. Why do people wait till they have cerebral thrombosis and have to be treated for paralysis? Won’t it be late to fight the fire when the house has burnt?

Female, age: 28, Kuznetsk

Hi! I often have chronic headaches (I have had them from time to time since I was about 12). The pain is like migraine, vasoneurosis. Since I was a school girl, the outer corners of the white of my eyes have often become red (with no purulent discharge), the inner corners being always white. The eye itches and burns a little at the area where the red blood vessels are located. I have myopia -1.5. I do not wear glasses. There is a connection between the reddening of the outer corners of the whites and the headaches. What may be the cause of the headaches and the red eyes? Tell me, what examinations I need to undergo. Thank you in advance for your answer and your work.

Our comment:

For 16 years a person has had vasoneurosis. That means a disorder in the functioning of the blood vessels, a blood circulation disorder. The blood does not carry the necessary amount of oxygen and essential nutrients to the vital organs. For 16 years a person cannot be cured with drugs that anesthetize and effect the blood vessels tone. Does any pill description contain the instruction to take the pills to cure the combination of a headache and red outer corners of the whites of the eyes? There will never be such a specific medication that will meet all the individual peculiarities of a patient. So instead of carrying some more test results to the polyclinic, where in 16 years they have tried all the analgesics they have in their arsenal, the patient should look for a specialist in Systemic Diagnosing and the Complex Systemic Therapy, who can clear out the mysterious combination of different disease symptoms and signs and define the cause.

Headaches with AVM

Male, age: 26, St.-Petersburg

Hi. Help me, please. With the diagnosed AVM in the left temporal lobe I suffer headaches that become more frequent. I have headaches almost every day and that is not as it used to be. I suppose it all began after a spasm when the right side of my body became numb for a few minutes, then the spasm disappeared. Headaches might be directly connected with AVM. Tell me, please, how dangerous that aching is. What has caused it? What has the spasm changed? Having studied my MRI results the doctor said that there had been no haemorrhage, but to prevent it in the future, the operation (embolization) was necessary. The operations are carried out at Polenov Research Institute. Do the surgeons at the Institute have extensive experience in this type of operations? Thank you for the answer.

The answer of a neurosurgeon

A headache is a symptom which may have no any relation to AVM. So it is not clear why you ask how dangerous a headache is. And how dangerous is a cold? The surgeons at Polenov Institute are quite experienced in carrying out intravascular embolization, so you have nothing to fear. But you must know that with AVM in the left temporal lobe in case of complications there might be memory and speech troubles during the post-operative period.

Our comment:

Here you have the combination of headache and changes in the structure of blood vessels. A dangerous operation is recommended. But only 1 person out of 50000 people has AVM. Cerebral strokes happen much more often. With cerebral strokes, operations do not always lead to improvement or health restoration too. That is why the headache treatment should be systemic. So, it is not wise to put off the Complex Systemic Therapy till holiday, till next year, till… The delay may lead to cerebral stroke that would sharply decrease the quality of life.

Sometimes the current medicine deceives itself. Using diagnosing systems, such as MRI, CT, and laboratory equipment that a couple of decades ago we could only dream of, doctors, especially the young generation, begin to forget the traditional methods of diagnosing. Routine examination methods used to be considered as standard, usual methods. Now the word “traditional” has become almost abusive, a synonym of something old-fashioned and useless. (Guglin E.R)

No apparatus possesses the senses or a powerful brain like man has. That is why a classic inspection, examination, questioning, listening to and touching even nowadays on average give more information than instruments. The methodology of finding the cause of headache is limited by the possibilities of these instruments, because there are no analogues to the human system of senses and perception analysis. That is why in usual medical institution where the specialists work who have gotten a standard training, mistakes in diagnosing a headache are unavoidable. Drug treatment can for some time switch off feeling of pain. It is necessary in extraordinary cases. But if the pain returns and has no relation to injury, it should be treated in connection with the cause of the disease. In these cases the urgent help regarding medications can do more harm that good, because they hinder homeostatic regulation of the organism. What we offer: definition of the cause of the headache using traditional diagnosing methods (Systemic Diagnosing) in combination with the additional methods of examination followed by the Complex Systemic Therapy. The advantages of the Complex Systemic Therapy over the medication therapy:

  1. no harmful side effects;
  2. homeostatic regulation of the body is restored, and that provides the ability of the organism to maintain good results without constant treatment;
  3. favorable effect on all other body systems and organs;
  4. prophylactic of other diseases including infectious ones.
