SO, WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER DOCTOR YOU HAVE SEEN?
In my Functional Medicine practice in Bloomington Illinois, I take a different approach to the treatment and prevention of severe headaches like Migraines and Cluster. Whereas most doctors you have seen treat only the symptoms, I specialize in the treatment of the cause of Migraine headaches. With the use of very specialized neurological and functional laboratory analysis, no stone will be left unturned in determining the exact cause of your Migraines. Once the cause is discovered and resolved, the Migraines just...VANISH. Doesn't it make more sense to treat the cause, rather than try to just "cover up" the symptoms with medications. This is the reason I am different from any other doctor you have seen and why my program is so successful.
WHAT ARE MIGRAINES?
The Migraine is perhaps the best known special type of headache. It is actually called the Migraine Syndrome. By syndrome we mean that a lot of other symptoms accompany the headache – all of them bad. Symptoms include dizziness, light sensitivity, “spots” before the eyes, redness, swelling, tearing of the eyes, muscle contraction, irritability, heart palpitation, excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, constipation, or diarrhea. These symptoms often arise before the headache hits. The headache itself may last for a few minutes to a few days, and the severity may range from minor discomfort to immobilizing agony. The Migraine pain is most common in the temple, but it may be experienced anywhere in the head, face and neck.
Closely related to the Migraine, is the Cluster headache. Attacks come on abruptly with intense, throbbing pain arising high in the nostril and spreading to the area behind the eye on the same side. Sometimes, the forehead is also affected. The attacks tend to occur from once to several times daily in clusters lasting weeks, or even months. Without apparent reason, the cluster subsides as quickly as it began.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF MIGRAINE AND CLUSTER HEADACHES?
When the upper part of your brainstem, the mesacephalon, over- fires or becomes hyperactive, it causes blood vessels in the head to contract and later expand. This is what causes the headache, as well as the other related symptoms mentioned above. But, what causes the brainstem to over- fire? Problems ranging from neurological weaknesses in the brain to metabolic issues like hidden infections, nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, adrenal dysfunction and heavy metal/chemical toxicity may be the reason. With functional neurological and laboratory testing, we can pinpoint the exact cause, correct it, and give you back your life!
HOW WILL DR. DUQUETTE TREAT MY MIGRAINE HEADACHES?
We utilize very precise BBT(brain based therapy) and metabolic treatments to "quiet" this over active part of the brainstem, giving you the relief you desperately need. No medications are needed. These therapies are designed to address the causes, not just "mask" or "cover up" the symptoms as drugs do. No matter how long you've suffered from Migraines/Cluster headaches or how severe they are, this program works! And, it will work for you too!
