On the topic of health, but not exactly on wheelchair accessories, please read the following information should you suffer from migraines:
Alternative treatments for migraines are becoming increasingly popular as more people have abandoned medical science out of frustration or desperation. The medical community has been somewhat supportive of these alternative treatments, understanding that Western medicine is not for everyone. Herbal remedies, relaxation techniques, dietary supplements, and various other natural remedies for migraines have been heralded by many migraine sufferers. These alternative treatments usually pose a much lower risk than traditional treatments, and research has shown that many natural treatments are effective and reliable. One method for treating migraines is the Gerson cure, which is believed to heal many medical problems.
Max Gerson was a German doctor who pioneered in the field of alternative medicine. His treatment was initially used for cancer patients, and he had a high level of success in ridding patients of their ailments. Gerson suffered from terrible migraines himself, and found that diet played a major role in treating his migraines. His plan focuses on detoxifying the body by consuming organic fruits and vegetables. Gerson believed that fertilizers and pesticides in the soil weakened the healing properties of these foods. The detoxification plan can last anywhere from two weeks to two months. The program may need to be repeated if symptoms begin to emerge again.
The Gerson cure is very intense. It bans alcohol, tobacco, salt, black tea (even in a drink holder), toothpastes containing fluoride, medications, aerosol sprays, deodorant, aluminum cooking pans, smoked, canned, and processed food, just to name a few taboos. However, adhering to this plan has been shown to benefit people suffering from cancer, tuberculosis, glaucoma, ulcers, diabetes, and epilepsy, as well as several other serious medical conditions. Since Gerson pioneered his treatment based on the relief of his own migraines, it may very well work for you.
Because the plan is so intense, it is best to consult a doctor before beginning treatment. The Gerson cure has been around for over sixty years, and is still being used today to treat many conditions, including terminal cancer (that’s more than we can say for our own cup holder). Most doctors advocate a healthy diet, and detoxifying the body can be a great help in improving dietary habits. However, your doctor will likely want to monitor you while you pursue this treatment. If you are ready to make dietary sacrifices which may improve your migraines, ask your physician if the Gerson cure could work for you.
