Denver Acupuncture Migraine Treatment Works Best
Imagine the headline, “Cure Found For Migraines!”. The story would read that a reclusive medical researcher, locked up in an ivory tower, had found a cure for migraines and headaches. One injection and your migraines would never come back. Considering that millions of Americans suffer from migraines and headaches on a regular basis, and spend a small fortune on drugs to either prevent or resolve them, it would be considered a miracle cure.
The bad news is that there is no reclusive, altruistic researcher out there.
The GOOD NEWS, however, is that acupuncture and Chinese medicine currently DO have a cure for migraines and headaches, a treatment that stops their recurrence. We call it the Denver Acupuncture migraine treatment. It has no equal!
How is this possible? In order to understand, I need to explain a little about how Chinese medicine works. The first thing to know is that Chinese medicine focuses on resolving the root cause of health problems. So when a migraine patient comes for treatment we first have to figure out what’s causing their headaches. There are about 20 different root causes, what we call imbalances, that trigger migraine symptoms.
In order to cure the condition, we must diagnose the underlying problem correctly. We do that by asking a series of questions, look at the tongue and feel the pulse. The information we gather from the patient is used to make a good diagnosis. Once the diagnosis is made, we then create a treatment plan to address the problem. It’s no different than what a plumber or electrician does. The problem for an electrician may be that a light is not turning on. They must find the loose wire or blown circuit responsible for the problem. That’s what Chinese medicine doctors do with their patients. We find the underlying imbalance responsible for the problem and fix them.
Once a treatment strategy is created to address the diagnosis, we use acupuncture and sometimes Chinese herbs to make the fix. This is what we call the Denver Acupuncture migraine treatment. It is custom designed for each patient, depending on their particular set of internal imbalances.
We work at the organ level, with the liver, stomach, spleen, heart and kidneys. That’s because migraines result from imbalances with these organs. Some migraines result from problems with the Stomach. Others involve the Liver. Still others the heart. These are not necessarily your real stomach, liver and heart, but your “Chinese” equivalents. Chinese medicine has been referring to these organs for thousands of years, way before we had modern notions about them.
Let me give you an example. A patient came to me two weeks ago suffering from debilitating migraines every day. He started getting migraines two years ago, and in the past four months they had become daily occurrences. In addition, he was concerned because he was losing his temper over everything, including at work and at home. This was not like him. Everything was bothering him, things that in the past did not bother him much. He was exhausted, stressed out and at his wits ends.
The first thing I had to do is correctly diagnose the cause of his migraines. As bad as his situation was, he was lucky in the sense that his diagnosis, called Liver Fire and Liver Yang Rising, was fairly easy to treat. Once the diagnosis was made, I began treating him. After the first treatment his pain started easing. After the second treatment, two days later, the headaches were not coming daily and were resolving themselves after two hours. By the fourth treatment he was no longer feeling angry all the time, and the headaches were mild and sporadic. All these changes occurred within two weeks.
Since he had a limited budget and had responded so quickly, I terminated treatment and send him home. If the headaches return he will come back for a few more treatments. But I believe the acupuncture was able to correct the imbalance in just four treatments. Often a patient will require 12 treatments. It depends on the pattern imbalance to be corrected.
Chinese medicine is unique in the sense that once an imbalance has been corrected, it tends to stay corrected. It’s as if the body, once regaining health, wants to stay there. And it does in most cases. That’s why the Denver Acupuncture migraine treatment resembles a cure. Now that’s not to say that if my most recent patient runs into a similar set of circumstances he won’t start getting headaches again. But in all likelihood this won’t happen. That’s my experience.
