You’ve heard it said that “Your gut is your 2nd brain”, well by that counting I’ll have to introduce this next one as your 3rd brain… Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing your 3rd brain… your spine. By this I mean, that along your spine – to the front of it – are nerve bundles called ganglion.
These ganglion receive and send nerve signals of their own and are not just there as a relay point between the body and the brain.
These ganglion are the base hardware for what is called the Sympathetic Nervous System.
Arguably the main one, and named after it’s star shape, is the Stellate ganglion. It sits in front of C7 (and up and down an bit).
The Stellate ganglion is very busy and one of the things if does is control the flow of blood to the brain.
Damage to the C7 region – say from an old whiplash or other trauma injury can cause the tissues in the surrounding area to become generally cloggy as the lymph drainage relies on gravity and the movement of the neck muscles to pump the area clean of old lymph, this clogging of the tissues is called oedema (edema – USA spelling).
If this oedema builds up to a certain point and gets too stagnant, the Stellate ganglion malfunctions – and this can have dire consequences:
In terms of Migraines, a malfunctioning Stellate ganglion can cause too little blood to go to the brain, the brain will react to this in the strongest possible terms and send a signal to “open the flood gates”, sending too much blood to the brain… net result… Migraine.
So to the main solution: The ASMI (Advanced Spinal Mobilisation Machine – formerly known as PAMM The Power Assisted Micro Mobilisation Machine and sometimes called Power Assisted Micro Manipulation Machine), its simply a brilliant non-surgical, non-back cracking method to fixing even very high end bad backs: This is what it does to an out of place C7:
So if you suffer migraines, check the base of your neck compared to other peoples necks – it won’t always look this bad – being tight and the tissues feeling stale and the skin not having vibrancy and feeling lifeless are the things to really look out for, the neck damage may be a bit higher or lower than C7.
While you await an appointment… keep this part of the neck un-cloggy – so light massage (heavy massage will flood the area with blood and the main issue is the clogged tissues. Drainage – getting stuff out, not putting more stuff in is the aim – have a YouTube search for Lymph drainage massage – this is the level of gentle massage you need)
Sleeping in an Inclined Bed – this helps gravity work to keep the drainage going another 8 hours at night time – one third of your life. And migraines at night time and first thing in the morning are very common, so much so that just Sleeping in an Inclined Bed has been enough for many people to get rid of their Migraines.
Avoid other triggers – so all the usual suspects coffee, sugar, things you are allergic to… but all these are already well known, and this short blog is just about showing you how to get rid of Migraines naturally, non-surgically and without the use of drugs once and for all by fixing the neck and also a free super assist with Inclined Bed Therapy
