If you have never had these tests, there is no way to identify where the neurological issues are coming from…
We also do extensive blood, urine and stool testing to identify metabolic and nutritional factors. Then we do a careful assessment of your neck and jaw to isolate any structural involvement.
This level of testing is the only way to figure out the best treatment program as every patient with migraine is different.
Step 2: Treatment Plan
Because there are different causative factors, our approach is slightly different for every patient. For people outside the NY Tristate area, we do a weeklong intensive program where they get labs done prior to them coming to NY. When they arrive, they get a complete examination and all neuro testing. Then they come into the office 3x/day for 5 days for treatments.
People who live locally may come multiple times per week for up to 12 weeks or as long as it takes to fix the underlying issues. This is much like exercising; you can’t get into shape and change your body in a week. It takes time. Changing your brain so it doesn’t continue to get worse takes time.
You may also be given a detox program, elimination diet, nutritional supplements, stress management strategies and Mindset coaching to help you beat these brain attacks.
It takes time and work on both of our parts, but results have been life changing for our patients.
Can you imagine a life without migraines?
