When most people think of migraines they think of headaches, but that is only one of the possible symptoms of this debilitating neurological disorder. Other possible symptoms include nausea, and sensitivity to sound and light.
Though, while a vestibular migraine causes headaches, other symptoms may follow.
Symptoms of Vestibular Migraines
- Sensitivity to light
- Sensitivity to sound
- Balance issues
- Hearing problems (ear stuffiness or tinnitus)
Beta Blockers can’t Stop Migraines
While the medical industries solution to this type of headache is for doctors to prescribe beta blockers to reduce blood pressure in people with hypertension, they also reduce the pain of migraines. Other drugs that are used to treat migraine headaches include SSRI’s, antidepressants, and anti-seizure medication. This is because no one is fully sure what the cause of migraines is. And since the purpose of medication is to cover symptoms, they just choose the drug that will cover that condition with symptoms similar to migraines.
Though, there are those doctors out there that mean will and will recommend that you take steps to determine what might be triggering this neurological disorder. They may also recommend you use stress management methods, including exercise or changing your diet.
Overcoming lies of the Pharmaceutical Companies
While there are more and more doctors realizing the lies of the pharmaceutical companies and the benefits of good health, changing your diet or exercising won’t get to the underlying problem of vestibular migraines. That will take adjusting your upper cervical vertebrae, which is the top two vertebra in the upper neck. This is where the brainstem and the spinal cord meet.
When those two bones are out of alignment by only 1/4th of a millimeter, it places pressure on the brainstem, thus hindering the brain’s ability to communicate with the body. Realigning the spine, which will relieve that pressure, restores the body to it’s normal function, thus allowing the body to heal itself from vestibular migraines among other conditions.
