A headache of any kind
causes a paralysis to a degree for the day. A migraine of course is rated to a DEFCON 5 status which means near death for some, if you know what I mean. This does not have to be a problem and it is something that should not last for more than an hour tops. It takes thirty to sixty minutes to resolve the issue and it relieves the ache every time. You want to lose your mind, your relationship, your job, your sanity for a whole day or even days or for life? Fine, stop here and move on to some other headache treatment dribble and spend your hard earned dollars thinking you’ll fare better. Go! Just go!
A headache is often characterized by a disturbance in some other part of the body. Various places are, for example, the digestive tract, disorders of the stomach, abdominal area and liver; problems with menstrual irregularities if you are a woman, a concussion, eye strain, fatigue, etc. The headache is a mechanism which signals a serious problem elsewhere. The common headache, however, is usually due to improper waste elimination. Constipation is the biggest culprit. One can have extremely healthy regimens, but if stress is prevalent, the colon is most effected in which bowel issues arise leading to the infamous headache. The worst is the migraine variety.
Okay.. you’re still with me. Good for you:) Now lets get to business and fix that painful dilemma.
I’ve had them and so too have you, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this article nor would I have spent the time writing it. There are several reasons for getting a headache and I can list them for ever, but the two main reasons are for women, it is the notorious and misunderstood menstrual cycle regarding estrogen. The other is for both men and women which just so happens to be a painful expression of a problem with the lower bowel, or large intestine. That problem is easily remedied.. it means there is something stuck and putrefying in an intestinal pocket, or a length of the large intestine. It needs to come out. When a woman ovulates, her body is asking to be cleansed and so it becomes sensitive and expresses that as problem in the intestinal tract with the pain of a headache. It means a woman on a monthly basis needs to purge her digestive system in preparation to become a ‘clean room environ’ for procreation.
The first step in solving the problem with migraines is a cleansing of the colon. Colon hydrotherapy, If you have ever had one, you know the liberating experience. It is an immediate relief of whatever is bothering you. If not, you have no idea what you’re missing. Now, I’m not a fan of anal violation.. it is something I’d rather not do. When your head is about to do the ‘Fukushima’.. if I were you.. I’d ‘go with the flow’. If it’s too much to take, then there are natural laxatives and colon cleanse products in your local health food store.
Dehydration Headaches caused by dehydration are best treated with an enema or colon hydrotherapy. This is because purified water is introduced to the very spot that absorbs water into the body’s circulatory system: Sometimes people get headaches because they are dehydrated. You would be surprised that most people walk around in a state of dehydration. Constipation is an indication that dehydration prevails. Compressed fecal matter presses on the nerves that affect the head. A catnip enema then is helpful in this case. For longer-term relief, the lower bowel formula [Fen LB] can heal the bowel so that there is no constipation.
The mechanics of the pain
What is happening is that an alert is being sent by the large intestine because there is a problem. When there is a clogging up of the pipes so to speak there happens to be an expression that indicates where the site of the colon traffic jam is. Iridology is the study of the sclera (whites) and the iris (the colorful wheel) of the eye to determine the health of the digestive system. One can literally change their brown eyes back to blue if they were originally blue eyed.
Restoring the original coloring of the iris is done by removing debris that has clung to the side wall tissue of the inner large intestine. The brown indicates a septic environment down there. This is something that happens over time, however, and the onset of a migraine headache means that there is a temporary shock to the system.
Something has just begun to fester and it needs to be flushed from the colon.
The next protocol is to reduce the tissue and muscle inflammation of the scalp.
The reason for the pain in the localized area comes from the stressed muscles that have contracted to the point of inflammation and impingement upon the nerves. Ouch. When it’s chronic it then becomes a real problem resulting in a migraine. The best thing to do is make a poultice of lobelia root mixed with inflammation reducing herbs that you would rub and smooth over the temples and scalp areas where it is painful. You can even use dimethyl sulfoxide, or DMSO, to help draw the formula deep into the scalp so that it reaches the tiny muscles underneath.
The third thing you can do is use white willow bark extract. This extract is what aspirin was made from. Willow does the same thing without any harmful side effects. Finally, using nicotinic acid, or vitamin B3 for familiarity, will open the capillaries allowing blood to flow freely through the entire body. It will help to flush the muscles of toxins and feed them so that they recover from the trauma. Vitamin B3, or Niacin as it is known on your labels, will help to reduce high blood pressure as well as lower cholesterol at the same time one is treating a headache. Niacinamide is also something that will help bring blood flow to the internal organs and tissues helping even more.
What is it about the colon that creates the problem and then fixes it?
They say that the colon is like the brain. It has similar cell structuring and talks to all parts of the body. Without being to complex, the point is that every point along it’s 5.5 foot length is a conduit and connection to a part of the body. In my article about the appendix I show how the colon can be stimulated using foot reflexology to help it spasm and vacate debris and fecal matter at various points. The colon flush you receive if you choose to do so for the headache will also help to prevent an inflammation of the appendix. If you are experiencing appendicitis, you’ll be killing two birds with a single stone.
When there is a poor condition along the length of the colon, the unabsorbed food remains behind the ‘pile up’ causing a ‘freeway’ slowdown where a ‘traffic jam’ occurs. When this happens, the liquid coming from the iliocecal valve cannot swirl that sediment from the pocket. The result is appendicitis because the gland becomes so exhausted with over secreting its antiseptic agents that it no longer functions, loses it’s health, and then needs to be removed. Unless you flush the system out using a series of colon hydro therapies to remove everything, this gland cannot rebound in time if so infected.
Below is a short list of markers (there are a plethora of them) that would indicate whether the headache is resulting from a human plumbing problem.
Although headaches are certainly a nuisance, much like the fly, mosquito and taxes, it is the indicator that it is time to make a move on detoxifying the body. The first place to begin is with the lower intestinal tract.
A cleansed colon, appendix, and soothed migraine headache
Iridology.. let’s look at the iris
(Enlarge above) You may even seek the advice or treatment from an acupuncturist to stimulate the appendix points on the body, ear and foot. A nutritionist can advise as to what herbs are essential for evacuating unwanted parasites and worms from the intestinal tract. Pumpkin seeds and walnut husk are used to remove these organisms. (Enlarge below)
Directing you to the appendix using the iris map of the eye is important. The appendix is the gland that secretes a compound that keeps your colon a clean room environment. Its job is to help prevent toxicity of the lower intestinal tract. This is especially crucial for the health of the body and at the same time keeps your from the daunting days of disastrous migraine hell.
Herbs and natural approach using colonic cleansing and a healthy diet promotes appendix health. You can also stimulate the appendix using pressure points at the ears and the right foot.
You can easily tell if when there is an impaction of the intestinal tract, in particular the large intestine, by the darkened ring around the pupil of the eye. A blue eye that has a brown ring as shown in this picture is a perfect example. You can test this if you happen to have a similar appearance by conducting a self-test. Change your diet to a healthy one, get a treatment professionally or a self colon hydrotherapy using the enema technique, and see if the area clears revealing the original blue that you had when as a child. The proof is in the pudding (action).
“Appendicitis is an accumulation of the physical energies of dampness, heat, and toxicity. You may visualize a stagnant swamp to get the idea. This condition plus fecal matter accumulates in the large intestine to produce the inflammatory western medicine recognizes as appendicitis. Actually this can be referred to as “traveling abdominal pain”. Acupuncture and herbs are used to eliminate the presence of this damp heat pathogen in the intestines. It helps restore “chi”. It is vitally important to consider weather and climatic patterns throughout the day.” – Xiou
When we look at the real estate of our digestive tract which is mapped out on the iris, your appendix is located just underneath the pupil area. If there is a blemish or a black spot, then you have self diagnosed yourself with an inflamed appendix. Further validation of the small and large intestine should confirm the diagnosis, however, it should not be a green light that you ‘must’ undergo a removal of this organ/gland. A seven to ten day fast as well as a thorough cleansing of the digestive tract while feeding yourself with better meal choices should result with a healed appendix in a couple of weeks at the most. The blemish on the iris fades and in a short span of time disappears.
You can massage a specific area of the ear and or the foot. In the middle of the right foot at the arch, you may press along the length from the inner sole to the outer and then down. What you are doing is going along the tract from the hepatic (liver) flexture where the colon makes it’s turn to the horizontal ‘transverse’ section, which is across the bottom of the foot, to the splenic (spleen) flexture where it turns down. Going down is the decending colon to the rectum. Just getting a total foot massage gets all of it and that makes it easier to awaken the body systemically.
Natural formulas using herbals
There are good formulas that will aid one with persistent headaches. One is by using wormwood, Culver’s root and cayenne. The cayenne pepper or extract works much like niacin because they both expand the capillaries for ease of blood flow. The circulatory system likes vaso dilation. This practice also helps to create a malleable circulatory tissue that has hardened or has become stiff. When the capillaries are flexible, the blood flows easing conditions of high blood pressure. The heart regains composure.
Relaxing Nervine, camomile, white poplar, false unicorn, lady’s slipper, lobellia and ginger are terrific adjuncts to helping soothe the headache syndrome.
For a Nervous Headache, take lady’s slipper, catnip and scullcap and chew 1-2 freshly-picked leaves of rue and for a regular headache, apply the freshly-bruised leaves of rue to the temples if lobellia is unavailable. Also, there is a formula using wood betony, rosemary and peppermint.
(Above) Lovelia flower, root, and lovelia extract. It is said that the oil of lovelia attracts love and storms.
A cupful of hot peppermint tea then lying down to relax helps with mild headaches. For a direct effect, the oil of peppermint applied externally on the affected area in the case of rheumatism, neuralgia, along with the headache.
Rosemary is another method to relieve headaches. As soon as the headache begins, a small bottle of spirits of Rosemary is held to the nose and the fumes are inhaled. In addition, a few drops of the preparation are rubbed gently but thoroughly on the temples, on the forehead, on the veins of the neck and behind the ears. This reputedly gives prompt relief. Remember, headaches are usually a manifestation of a waste elimination problem. Temporary herbal reliefs are one thing, addressing the problem at its core is how these problems are permanently fixed.
How bout a juices for a Sick Headache! Celery, celery & apples
Using cabbage leaves, apply the leaves to the forehead and nape of the neck. The effective treatment is to leave them on overnight as well as applying them over the liver as one would use castor oil packs when flushing the gall bladder for stones.
Indigestion with bilious turns is a familiar problem with some people. They arise from a night’s sleep with a sickening headache. Eating sea vegetables, in particular kelp, and taking cell salts at every meal, these morning sickness troubles will subside. Kelp is not only known to act on the liver, but also on the toxic colon, the gall bladder, kidneys, and meninges (are usually involved when the headaches are severe). This certainly shows that the colon is a smart and sensitive body part. You’ll feel better if you take care of your large intestine.
You know, sometimes it’s just coffee. You just gotta get a good cup o Joe in ya to get rid of the darned headache. And that’s a good thing because I think all tea drinkers should reconsider their love affair with tea:)
