You have the ability to control or eliminate your headaches … YOU have the ability to control or eliminate your headaches! This statement is worth saying twice because you most likely will never hear this anywhere else. We are exposed, roughly every five minutes, to some new treatment, new modality or new medication to help us deal with headaches. Please know that the new treatment to help you with your headaches lies in each and everyone of us. It is called the human body!!
There are many types of headaches:
• Cluster headaches
• Tension headaches
• Rebound headaches
• Cervicogenic headaches
• Ainus headaches
Each one has many different causal factors such as stress, allergies, muscle tightness, sinus pressure, spinal misalignment, physical exertion, medications, lack of sleep, etc. Here are some headache statistics. Every 10 seconds someone in the United States goes to the emergency room with some type of headache . Migraines rank in the top 20 of the world’s most disabling medical conditions . American employers lose more than $13 billion each year as a result of 113 million lost workdays due to migraines .
Headaches are a horrible medical condition. What treatment options do you have?
Treatment options include seeing a medical provider to whom you trust. When this occurs, the medical provider will most likely do an exam and prescribe some sort of medication. The most popular medications that currently help with headaches are Imitrex and Topamax. Imitrex treats headaches that an individual currently has but will not prevent future headaches. It works by narrowing the blood vessels around the brain causing vasoconstriction. Topamax works by preventing future headaches. Topamax works to decrease the number of future headaches but it does not help if a headache has begun. The exact actions of Topamax are unknown but it is believed to relax overly excited nerve cells in the brain so the headache signals in the brain are altered or hindered. Another popular treatment for headaches is the use of Botox. The full answer as to why Botox helps with headaches is not fully known, but it is believed to help with reducing certain neural pathways that can cause headaches. Yes, these medications help tremendously, however, with each medication there are certain side effects. Some side effects of Imitrex include: paresthesia, malaise, neck pain, dizziness, myocardial ischemia, coronary vasospasms and stroke . Some side effects of Topamax include paresthesia, cognitive dysfunction, diarrhea, nausea, osteomalacia, and osteoporosis . Some side effects of Botox include fever, infection, nausea, muscle weakness, fatigue and toxin effect spread .
Anybody with a computer can look up the above information! However, Live Health Foundation is different!! There are two Pillars that form the basis for Live Health Foundation.
Pillar number one of the Foundation states:
Under the right circumstances, individuals have the ability to heal themselves. This foundational pillar is true to individuals that suffer from headaches. What we offer is the ability to truly Live Headache Free. Most individuals are in the rat race with headaches. That means that they are in a race; a race between taking the medication and always trying to get ahead of the headache. Sometimes that individual wins the race by not getting the headache, but sometimes that person loses the race. Losing the race means getting the headache, feeling sick, losing time at work or with family, etc.
I challenge you to break free from the rat race. I challenge you to Live Headache Free. There is a way to eat and drink in order to maximize the amount of energy you get from the foods that you eat. This program is called Live Health Foundation. It is derived from the teachings of Dr. Carey Reams. Dr. Reams is the founder of the Reams’ Biological Theory of Ionization, RBTI. (Please read Goal and Premise of Live Health Foundation) He developed a method, through chemical analysis based on a patient’s urine and saliva, which would explain what mineral deficiencies were present. Furthermore, once these mineral deficiencies were corrected, the patient’s health would be restored.
The second Pillar from the Foundation states:
All diseases and symptoms are the result of mineral deficiencies and once the deficiencies are corrected, symptoms reduce and health is restored. The goal is to treat the source, not just the symptoms. This program has also evolved through the standardization of the teachings by Dr. Reams, by Dr. Challen Waychoff II, ND. Dr. Waychoff is known as the Developer of RBTI. While in his twenties, Dr. Waychoff II met Dr. Reams. Dr. Waychoff was very sick with blisters on his throat, extreme fatigue, loss of weight, and the inability to sleep. He went to many medical doctors, all of which could not explain or help his symptoms. Through a series of connections, he met Dr. Reams. Dr. Reams performed the chemical analysis on Dr. Waychoff. After adjustments in diet and mineral deficiencies were corrected, Dr. Waychoff’s health was restored. Dr. Waychoff II currently has a nationally trademarked company and he is able to test and help many people.
According to the Foundation, the main causal factor of headaches is the amount of sugar that is found in the urine. The sugar level reading that is found with the chemical analysis of a patient should read 1.5 to 2.0 Brix on a refractometer scale. A refractometer is a handheld instrument and when a liquid is placed on the refractometer, it can tell how much sugar is in that substance compared to distilled water. This sugar reading is the direct correlation of how much oxygen your blood is carrying throughout your body. Oxygen is very important for your organs to maintain proper function. If the sugar level is too high or too low this decreases your body’s ability to transport oxygen adequately. When your sugar level is unbalanced for a certain number of days, weeks, or even years, your body will respond by exhibiting symptoms. Some symptoms of this include, but are not limited to, HEADACHES!! Individuals with controlled sugar levels will exhibit fewer symptoms. Moreover, this will control or eliminate an individual’s headaches without the use of medications, surgery or Botox.
The Foundation tests the sugar level of the urine because it is a more accurate test than testing the sugar level of the blood. The sugar level in the blood, known as the Glucose Tolerance Test, is too variable and can change with food. Testing the sugar level of the urine is a more accurate test, because not all sugars of the body break down into glucose. For example there is fructose, the sugar from fruit, sucrose, sugar from fruits and vegetables like sweet peas, and lactose, the sugar from milk or milk by products. A refractometer tests all sugars in the body, not just glucose.
One thing that can affect the sugar in the urine is water intake. Have you ever heard that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day?
This is not true all of the time. If a person has high sugar due to various reasons, then 8 glasses of water will help. Conversely, if a person has low sugar due to various reasons, then 8 glasses of water will cause harm to that person. The reason it would be harmful is because it would cause the sugar level to plummet. That will cause many health issues like headaches, fatigue, feelings of depression and muscle aches.
Another example that would affect the sugar level in the urine is lemon juice. Lemon juice helps to stabilize the sugar level in the body. The recipe for lemon juice is: 1.5 ounces of juice from a freshly squeezed lemon, 14 ounces of distilled water and 1 tablespoon of a natural sweetener. Sweeteners include maple syrup, karo syrup or Grandma’s Molasses. Drinking lemon juice systematically throughout your day serves two purposes. It aids in stabilizing one’s sugar level and it helps in the digestion of food. Lemon juice makes one’s liver bile stronger. Moreover, it makes the digestion of food better, which then allows the individual to gain more energy from the food that is eaten. This will increase energy, endurance, and vitality as well as decrease fatigue.
The goal of Live Health Foundation is to build awareness in the general public that you do not need to be held hostage by symptoms, always wondering when another ailment or health challenge will occur. This is the Power of the Program; the ability for the individual to know what needs to happen in order to take control of their current health situation. There are easy steps that can be taken in order to fulfill one’s goal of living without health challenges. This Foundation has the potential and the confidence to give people hope, where they can truly use terms like … certainty in your health care, freedom from sickness and symptoms, restoration of your health! YOU CAN TRULY LIVE YOUR LIFE!!
