Abnormal production levels of HGH(human growth hormone) + testosterone, LH (lutenizing hormone), and estrogen + misalignment of spine or some other form of blockage (causing interruption of neg. feedback cycle) = CLUSTER HEADACHE
- The endocrine system – location of major glands: Testis, ovaries, small intestine, pancreas, adrenal, stomach, thymus, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, pineal, and Hypothalamus.
- The Hypothalamus is the master gland controlling the action of all these endocrine glands through a negative feedback system.
- Neurotransmitters and other hormones travel through pathways of the Central Nervous System (CNS) to the spinal cord to other endocrine glands and body parts.
- LH Releasing Hormone from the hypothalamus triggers LH to be released into the body, which in turn stimulates the production and release of progesterone, estrogen and testosterone.
Imagine what would happen if a partial blockage or impairment of the pathways occurred.
- Now add to this deteriorating situation a poor functioning liver that is flushing nutrients out of the body instead of utilizing them and not able to process fats (steroid hormones for example, testosterone, estrogen and norepinephrine. Are created from cholesterol).
- Then we add a stomach that is not able to absorb and process nutrients such as amino acids and proteins (for example, tyrosine, the precursor of thyroxine and melanin and epinephrine, as well as tryptophan, precursor of serotonin). In addition we see low levels of magnesium, missing vitamins, especially the B’s and low levels of folic acid. The list could go on and on.
Cluster headaches seem to begin either around puberty or early adulthood, and have been noted to diminish with age. One of the typical characteristics of the affliction is waking up with a cluster headache during REM sleep.
- The human growth (HGH) is created in the anterior pituitary. It is most productive during puberty and diminishes as we age so that by the time we reach 60, the amount of HGH in the body can be as low as 25%. It is secreted during the early hours of sleep and remains in circulation for only a few minutes. The liver converts it into somatomedin-C(IGF-1). This insulin-like hormone is then responsible for some of the activity of growth hormone in the body, protein, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.
- What happens if the liver is impaired and cannot process HGH into IGF-1? How would this affect the body and the CNS? Could it cause an overgrowth of cells in the suprachiasmatic nuclie (anterior hypothalamus)? What other effect would it have on brain function, on the body?
So if this is the equation for Cluster Headaches, then what is the solution?
Combined treatment to repair blockage/spine misalignment, organ and hormone function.
- Certified, experienced Naturopath Iridologist (meaning the practitioner has had 7 + years medical training, same as MD.) combined with chosen practitioner’s recommended chiropractor and or acupuncturist.
- Spiritual guide to deal with underlying emotional baggage (Reiki), also on chosen practioner’s recommendation to avoid fly-by-nighters and charlatans.
All life is a circle. All functions of the body are linked together. No one function is independent of another. All must work together to achieve harmony and wholeness.
