Headaches

Symptoms and Signs of Headaches

Pain in the head may be related to structural abnormalities in the joints or muscles of the neck, sinus congestion, eye problems, hormonal fluctuations, toxins. For instance, if we think about the most common “intoxication”, that of overuse of alcohol, we note that a hangover usually includes headache. This revolves around a combination of toxins, dehydration, and nutritional deficiencies, and may be caused my many toxins other than alcohol.

Targeted Diagnostic Testing

An under-appreciated root cause of headaches often stems from imbalances in the gut environment. This may be related to food sensitivities, dysbiosis (imbalance of the gut flora), or inflammation of the gut lining leading to leaky gut syndrome. Our diagnostic testing is targeted by taking an accurate headache history, along with detailed physical examination to uncover the root causes of headaches.
