B.J., Oklahoma City, OK
I have had these miserable "weather headaches" for 30 years, many last 10 days. None of my many doctors
over the years recognized these as migraines. Maybe they didn't know that a falling barometer is a migraine "trigger."
They told me it was all in my head (yes) and that the pain "couldn't be that bad." Nonetheless, they gave
me all sorts of painkillers that all made me incredibly nauseous, loopy, and dizzy, (unable to stand), but didn't give
me relief. By the time I was 30, I had learned that doctors don't know much about pain, and that I am too sensitive
to pain drugs to take any of them. So I just coped with these intense headaches all these years with virtually no relief
beyond what a cup of stout coffee and Tylenol would give.
In 1987, I had a whiplash neck injury that caused
the headaches to increase in intensity a hundred fold. Doctors don't know much about whiplash, either. They
offered me drugs. Chiropractic gave me brief periods of relief from the neck pain, but not the weather headaches.
This pain just takes over your life, and there is no way to rest up from it before it hits again. In 1998,
after 11 years of continually working through searing red pain, I was physically and emotionally exhausted and completely
burned out. I quit the only job I ever loved and stayed home. I slept for three months. In late 1999, I
began to see some improvement in the neck pain, except during spring and fall, the "weather months."
The year 2000 will be known as a very "weathery" year in Oklahoma. I spent all of April, most of May, and
all of June and July with weather headaches, day after day, unable to work, hiding myself in dark rooms, asking my sweet husband
to close cabinets more quietly, unable to stomach any food.
Then in late July, I literally stumbled
upon a website that contained a paper, published by Dr. John Allocca, about the physical processes that cause migraines and
how to relieve them. I learned that serotonin and norepinephrine are the two neurotransmitters in the brain that are
deficient in people with migraines. Certain "triggers" start the process that causes the deficiency and leads
to the headache -- one of the triggers listed was low barometric pressure. I discovered that my weather headaches might
be migraines. I immediately called Dr. Allocca to clear up some questions. He explained how the process happens
in the brain and how the Neurobiology Formula 12397 works and he encouraged me to read more about it. He gave me John
Carvalho's number at Dynamic Health Resources in case I was interested in trying the formula.
read up on it, and then I called John Carvalho. John showed me that if my headaches were not migraines, the formulas
wouldn't work. I ultimately decided to try the formula. This formula works so well, I have not had even one migraine
since I took the first dose, even though the barometer has plunged many times in the last 7 weeks. We have even had
four dark, rainy days, but I had no headaches.
Neurobiology formula 12397 gives me the nutrients my body
needs to make the serotonin and norepinephrine. It will not ruin my liver (or any other body part) and it doesn't
nauseate me, make me loopy or dizzy.
However, my husband and I have noticed three side effects
so far. I sleep better. I have begun to smile and laugh more than in many years. Although I still have to
deal with neck pain, there has been a subtle improvement. If you have not experienced this kind of pain, you may not
be able to imagine how important this is, but it is absolutely a miracle for me.
