Yep! Fighting evil as usual! Fear no more! Eventually the truth will come out. The problem is that entire industries that depend on “helping” migraineurs during their migraines by selling them “abortive” medicines and in between providing “preventive” medicines that do nothing but make people sick and big pharma rich, will disappear if they let the truth be seen! So I will show you the truth!
First, here is the letter you will not see published by them:
I hope you welcome my email given that I am a migraine expert both because I am a migraineur and have suffered for over 30 years but also because I am a scientist who went on research to find “migraine monster” and found that a solution has been under our noses all along. I now have thousands of people using simple electrolyte balancing for free and are migraine AND medicine free and this includes me.
I have found that the brain of those who get migraines is a special brain that science is now proving. Scientists have found that a migraine brain has more sensory organ receptor connections and hence the sensitivity that migraineurs have toward light, sound, smells, etc. More receptor connections mean more sensitivity but it also means more energy is needed for the brain to work. Scientists have also found that metabolic syndrome (diabetes 2 and obesity) are migraine partners but did not find the reason for the connection. Based on what glucose does to hydration, and I quote from the 18th edition of the Harrison’s Manual of Medicine:
“…serum Na+ falls by 1.4 mM for every 100-mg/dL increase in glucose, due to glucose-induced H2O efflux from cells” page 4, it is clear what is happening.
Glucose holds onto water outside of the cells by sucking it out (H2O efflux from cell) and also reduces sodium. Thus glucose unbalances electrolyte. By removing sodium, it also prevents energy (voltage) from being generated. Regions of brain neurons that cannot generate voltage are seen in fMRI as “cortical depression” (CD) and the wave of energy coming from the energized part of the brain moves to energize the dormant neurons; this is called “cortical spreading depression” CSD. Think of this as when a heart attack patient receives a life saving electric shock from paramedics. The brain generates its own electric shock to awaken the dormant regions. This electrical wave is seen as aura by those whose brain region activates the wave in the occipital cortex. This is also the wave that is responsible for seizures (they are faster, that is the only difference) and they also activate the sensory receptors in the meninges, hence migraine pain.
This whole process is well understood only so far no one has connected the dots to understand that migraineurs have a different brain and not a sick brain. These different brains need different energy because of their sensory complexity; voltage energy to be specific. Whatever creates voltage in the brain (and we know what that is from every biology 101 book!) is what the migraine brain needs more of than non-migraine brains.
It is so simple and there is so much resistance because understandably if no medicine is needed, it destroys a whole industry.
I know this email will never be published by you so I publish it on my blog. 🙂
There is not much I wish to add to this now. Those in my migraine group of over 1600 and those who read my Fighting the Migraine Epidemic book know precisely what this is about. So if you want to learn more, read the book! If you are a migraineur, you are also welcome to join my group on Facebook.
Questions and comments are welcome as always!
