MIGRAINE /VAGUS NERVE

How is Migraine Treated?

Migraine sufferers typically take pain relieving medications (such as aspirin, ibuprofen, paracetamol or acetaminophen), however these medicines have the unfortunate side effect of further depleting glutathione stores in the body. 

Vagus Nerve Stimulation

‏Simple Trick to Relieve Stress:

Doctor Explains How Antidepressants Affect Relationships and Marriages

The next time you’re feeling anxious or depressed, don’t take a prescription drug.

 

Instead, try a safe and effective remedy for stress that is backed by thousands of years of anecdotal and scientific evidence.

 

Doctors and other experts say that stimulating something called the vagus nerve – which originates in the brainstem and extends all the way down to the tongue, vocal chords, heart, lungs, and other internal organs – is a quick and easy way to relieve anxiety.

 

You may have never heard of the vagus nerve, but it is the most important element of the parasympathetic nervous system, the one that calms you down. When you stimulate your vagus nerve, you counteract your sympathetic nervous system, the one that causes stress by activating your fight-or-flight response.

 

“It’s almost like yin and yang,” says Mladen Golubic, M.D., of the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Integrative Medicine. “The vagal response reduces stress. It reduces our heart rate and blood pressure. It changes the function of certain parts of the brain, stimulates digestion, all those things that happen when we are relaxed.”

 

When you stimulate your vagus nerve, it releases an array of anti-stress enzymes and hormones such as acetylcholine, prolactin, vasopressin, and oxytocin. Vagus nerve stimulation is associated with benefits such as improved memory, immune function, sleep, and higher levels of growth hormone. It also may help tame inflammation, allergic responses, and tension headaches.

Some studies show that cold water facial immersion, especially after exercise, can quickly stimulate the vagus nerve and help reduce the heart rate while activating the digestive and immune systems. The area behind the eyeballs is a particularly accessible zone for stimulation.

Then maybe you should try icing your head? People have been using ice or crythotherapy for migraines for hundreds if not thousands of years. There is even evidence that the Greeks first used it. The first published research, however, goes back the mid 19th century. It has been such an accepted treatment modality since then that not much new research was attempted until about 30 years ago. In 1984, Diamond and Freitag found that there was an overall 63% decrease in headache pain by using ice gel backs. In fact, 71% reported they would use a gel pack in the future. In 1989, Robbins found that over 65% of patients found cold packs to be from mildly to completely effective in relieving headaches. Why it works is tough to say. Some feel it may be to the constriction and then dilation of blood vessels while others have different theories. The bottom line, though, is that there is a benefit to icing your head if you suffer from migraine and the best part is there are no contraindications or problems with trying it.

The Role of Glutathione in the Brain

GLUTATHIONE is the brain's most important antioxidant and free radical scavenger. Glutathione plays a vital role in mopping up harmful toxins, so if Glutathione get depleted these toxins can accumulate and cause cell damage. Glutathione is able to chelate and remove mercury from the body via the liver. Glutathione also plays a vital role in the production of melatonin, an endogenous antioxidant that is involved in regulating our circadian rhythms.
