Clustheadache sufferers make up about 0.07% of the general population (e.g. 7 in 10'000). If we assume that a quarter of the population suffer from one of the "headaches of all types" clusterheadaches make up less than 0.3% of all headache sufferers (and yes, thank you very much to group us together with the hangover sufferers!).
If someone claims she can "cure" 85% of all headaches, what makes you so sure that success rate for the very small fraction of Ch sufferers is in the same range??
The foremost experts on clusterheadaches found out that CH is caused by a malfunction of the hypothalamus. Can you tell us, how the heck, the readjustment of a supposed subluxation of the spine can reduce the excessive size of the hypothalamus and bring it back to normal?
You just found this site by chance, and I bet my last shirt that you didn't know about cluster headaches before, and still have not the slightest hunch what it's all about. I have found this site 3 years ago and I have read all the 130'000 post on it. A very few have reported an improvement on their CH by chiropractic manipulations, but certainly not a cure for life (and there is always to consider the possibility that the so called success of a [unproven] treatment just coincides with the natural end of a cycle). However, for many, many more this treatment was just a waste of money, and for quite a few it made their CH worse.
Blaming the pharmaceutical companies to withhold "natural cures" out of avariciousness is a well known foul practice of snake oil salesmen. Please, go somewhere else with your impertinent scam, or better even, stop trying to make an easy buck out of the suffering of desperate people.
