What is Migraine? How Does Migraine Happen? What is the Treatment of Migraine?
Although migraine is considered a brain disease, it is a disease originating entirely from the body. Headache is in the foreground in migraine. For this reason, it can even be perceived as just a headache, but complaints such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, and fatigue that concern the whole body often accompany headaches. Hypersensitivity to stimuli such as restlessness, irritability, smell, sound, and light are general symptoms. Focal neurological findings such as weakness, imbalance, dizziness, and rarely fainting may also develop, from half or incomplete vision, speech difficulty, drowsiness to half paralysis. The main feature of all migraine symptoms is that they are temporary. They do not cause permanent damage.
How does migraine happen?
Pain is an unpleasant feeling, but the body’s call for help. If the disruptive areas of the patient are investigated without forgetting this principle, it is also understood how migraines and headaches are, and the disease can be resolved. Migraine is only temporary dysfunction in autonomic nervous system functions without structural damage (dysfunction). Migraine is a disruptive area disease.
How is the racking area formed?
A negative effect (microbe, impact, cut, etc.) lowers the electrical potential of the cell. This is the beginning of illness. Negative stimuli from the diseased area spread throughout the system, that is, the body. If there are hard, intense, continuous stimuli, the cell cannot recover itself. It produces continuous rhythmic discharges because it loses its electrical potential. This formation, which is called the “disruptive area”, affects the autonomic nervous system until the person dies. Occasional stimulation from disturbing areas affects the entire system (disrupting its work, initiating a nervous storm) creates a migraine attack. Therefore, migraine is a bio-electrical disease.
How should the treatment of migraine be?
Migraine is a curable disease, but it is very difficult to get out of the idea of ”There is no cure for migraine, it is necessary to learn to live with it”, which is settled in social consciousness like a myth. Since migraine patients, their mothers, children and those around them cannot get rid of migraines, the practical response in life confirms this situation. Although the effects of the most commonly used drugs in migraine are temporary. Although migraine decreases in life, it is in the person’s own development. There is no drug that stops migraine for life.
The patient always looks for a remedy, wants to get rid of his pain, but also believed that he can not get rid of migraines. This contradictory situation must be overcome. The treatment approach developed based on the idea that “If there is pain, there is a cause,” it is directed directly to the causes. There are causes for all kinds of migraines and when the causes are corrected, migraine also improves (Gökmen Approach).
Although the cause of migraine is considered as stress, hormones, lodos or some foods, migraine cannot be cured, life is learned, restrictions and controls are attempted with it. Environmental factors are not the cause of migraine. Migraine is completely related to the bio-electrical system of the body. Environmental factors only trigger migraine.
Without forgetting that migraine is a bio-electrical disease, the effects of the methods presented as a remedy should be questioned. The efficacy of scientific methods (neural therapy, acupuncture, hypnosis…) in non-drug medicine is much more than drugs. The most effective treatment is cause-oriented treatment. Thus, the cause of every migraine can be found and solved.
