Really, really BAD headaches!

Headaches! Really, really BAD headaches! That is the first thing that brought me to my chiropractors’ office. Not mild headaches…I’m talking nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to sound. I used to wake up in the morning, about once a month or every 3 to 5 weeks, sometimes more often and these headaches were so bad that they ruined my whole day!!! I used to take a variety of medications to combat them (or their symptoms), such as: Gravol, Advil liquid-gels, Zomig Rapimelt (Zolmitripton) and Maxalt RPD (rizatriptan). In most cases the meds didn’t even give me any relief!

And then someone recommended that I go to their chiropractor. I was skeptical. Boy am I glad I did go. My headaches have decreased and they are much less severe. No more nausea, which is a relief.

As an added benefit, my blood pressure has dropped!! This is something I hadn’t counted on, but…Hallelujah! I have had high blood pressure for a long time and had been taking medication for it. My family doctor was very skeptical to begin with. On one of my last visits my blood pressure was 116/80, the best it’s been in years. I could have danced out of there, I was so happy. Another gift from chiropractic. My medical doctor is extremely pleased and is now asking questions about chiropractic.

I have peace of mind because of the care my chiropractors have given me. There are a few things that I have had to give up for my health (like home-made white bread), but that’s a small price to pay!

I have to say that I came here, full of doubts, but in desperation. I was impressed with the workshop and the explanation “wellness”. The fact is , a doctor/chiropractor can only do so much; we are the ones living in our bodies. I decide to really work on this. I did my exercises, made a food journal and started writing down info every time I had a headache. I did all this for me. My chiropractors and their staff have been very encouraging, and I highly recommend them to all.
