Do you suffer from cluster headaches? Read on to find out more about how Advanced Healing Therapies can help you... 

Causes and Symptoms 

Causes 

The exact cause of cluster headaches isn't clear, but they've been linked to activity in part of the brain called the hypothalamus. 
 
People who smoke seem to have a higher risk of getting cluster headaches. Some cases also appear to run in families, which suggests there may be a genetic link. 
 
Cluster headache attacks can sometimes be triggered by drinking alcohol or by strong smells, such as perfume, paint or petrol. 

Symptoms 

Cluster headaches begin quickly and without warning. The pain is very severe and is often described as a sharp, burning or piercing sensation on one side of the head. It's often felt around the eye, temple and sometimes face. It tends to occur on the same side for each attack. 
 
People often feel restless and agitated during an attack because the pain is so intense, and they may react by rocking, pacing, or banging their head against the wall. 
 
At least one of the following associated symptoms is usually present: 
a red and watering eye 
drooping and swelling of one eyelid 
a smaller pupil in one eye 
a sweaty face 
a blocked or runny nostril 
The attacks generally last between 15 minutes and three hours, and typically occur between one and eight times a day.

How Advanced Healing Therapies can help 

Using our award winning Nobel prize technology attention should be directed on the Acuscope’s capacity to manage stress-related imbalances. By placing special electrodes on the ear lobes or the frontal bone of the head, the instrument, when set at the appropriate frequencies, will induce a relaxed concentration in the client within 20 to 30 minutes. This procedure, also known as “Electro-Sleep” or “cranial electric stimulation” or CES has been applied successfully by medical specialists ranging from dentists to psychiatrists. 
 
This procedure is recommended to reduce mental fatigue, enhance autonomic stability, improve concentration, and, as a general procedure, to prepare the patient for treatment, including surgery. This procedure can also be helpful with hyperactive children, depression/manic depression, insomnia, anxiety, headache, migraines, visual disturbances and head trauma. Other research investigations demonstrate the promise of electro-sleep in other lifestyle stress-related areas such as obesity, addiction, compulsion, alcohol and drug detox, mood/food, etc. Unlike drug therapy, there is no dependency, adverse side effects, and benefits are sustained for progressively longer periods of time permitting increased conditioning to behavior modification methods. 
 
The electro-sleep phenomenon occurs when a relaxed state is induced by the transcranial application of low intensity current such as is produced by the Electro-Acuscope. Actually, the word “electro-sleep” is misleading in that patients are not forced into sleep; but rather guided into a relaxed, conscious state.
