Throughout Troy Aikman’s career with the Dallas Cowboys, he battled and won numerous games in order to lead his team to victories. Though, he chose to fight his off-field battle against migraines with medication instead of with the right team.
In this video, Aikman talks about how he won his battle after he consulted his physician and started taking Imitrex. Though, one problem with taking this or any other medication is that it only covers the symptoms, rather than dealing with the underlying condition. The other problem is that every medication comes with side effects, and they are never good.
The Lies Pharmaceutical Companies Sell You
Now, it’s understandable that a headache sufferer might think that because that medicine make them feel better, then it must be good for them. The problem with that thinking is that our bodies consist of countless chemicals, and adding chemical to our body alters our body’s chemistry levels. The optimal result pharmaceutical companies test and manufacture these drugs for is that they will relieve a person of certain pain. Though, since everybody’s body chemistry is different, and there may be different reactions to adding outside medications to one’s body chemistry, they can never guarantee the results to every person.
Right now, there are more than 13,000 prescription drugs on the market. Pharmaceutical companies have earmarked $20,000,000 of their budgets a year, which is about one-third, to marketing only 10 of those drugs to the consumer. They know when the headache suffers are most likely to be watching television, so they run television ads that convince people they can find the healing they need by asking their doctor about whichever prescription medication they want to market.
Of course, listening to the pharmaceutical companies is a great way to increase their profit revenue, but increasing the profits of corporations doesn’t address the underlying cause of Troy Aikman’s, your, or anyone else’s migraine headaches. Imitrex does not add any unneeded chemical to a person’s body, in order to prevent migraines. It doesn’t even address the underlying cause.
Healing from the Pain vs Dealing with the Pain
Now, it’s your choice, but there is one more possible side effect that headache medication may have. Your body may become immune to it after some time, and then you will just have to find a new type of medication. The result will be that not only will you have added the chemicals from the Imitrex to your body, but you will also have added the chemicals from the other drug, and any other drugs to your body.
You could just stop adding all of those chemicals to your body and go see an upper cervical chiropractor. They will address a frequent underlying cause of your headaches by examining your upper neck vertebrae for any misalignments. A misalignment of only ¼ of a millimeter in the top two vertebrae in your neck puts pressure on your brainstem, which can alter your cerebral blood flow, lead to nerve damage, and more. The way to reverse that damage is by allowing an upper cervical chiropractor to examine your upper neck vertebrae, so they can make any necessary adjustments to you upper cervical spine, so as to relieve any pressure on your brainstem and return your body it’s right function.
