How Migraines Develop

Migraines are a chronic state of pain that produce a high level of sensitivity from lights, sounds or smells.  Migraines and headaches are caused by an impairment of blood circulation to the brain.  This is due to chronic stress which causes the arteries that feed nutrients and oxygen to the brain to dilate.  This leads to a decreased amount of nutrients and oxygen reaching the neurons in the brain, creating a misbalance in the production of inhibitory neurotransmitter in the region of the brain (the temporal lobe) that processes light, sound, smell and learning.

Neurotransmitter misbalance also affects the ability to connect nerve fibers and neuron fibers, resulting in an inability to control pain.  Depression and anxiety are recognized as primary causes of migraines.  Lack of sleep and use of certain drugs also initiate migraines.  Of all the factors however, chronic stress is the most culpable due to inflammation that occurs in the neck when we’re stressed.  The inflammation applies pressure and compression on the spine, constricting the flow of spinal fluid.  It also constructs the flow of serotonin, an important inhibitory neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep, appetite, memory, learning, body temperature and sexual desire.

Removing the Pain

Due to chronic stress being the primary driver and root cause of migraines, managing stress is critical to helping the body find proper balance again.  Understanding episodes and events that lead to stressful symptoms is an important first step.  The ability to reconcile and close out stressful episodes will place the physiology of the body back into balance.  Nutrition is also critical.  Under eating important nutrients or over eating unhealthy foods creates a micro environment of cellular stress which manifests itself physically through irritability, lack of energy and fatigue.

Phytotherapi’s solution support the natural healing process of the mind and body.  In addition to providing nutritional advice to help the cells heal damage, the solution also includes tools to put the mind at ease to alleviate stress and supports the body’s reparation process.  These solutions include Phytotherapi Migraine, Phytotherapi Stress and Phytotherapi Sleep.  Phytotherapi Migraine supports the body’s ability to reduce inflammation, allowing the body to relax the areas that are constricting blood flow.  Phytotherapi Stress alleviates stress levels, allowing the body to relax so that the body can repair itself.  Phytotherapi Sleep helps normalize sleep, allowing the body and mind the ability to undergo its natural regeneration and healing processes that occur while we rest.
