Learn About This Drug-Free Method Of Ending Your Misery That Your Primary Doctor May Not Know About

What do you do when you suffer from a migraine? Lie down? Take a pill and hope the pain goes away? If you’re reading this, you want relief and you want it now!

Most people experiencing migraine pain seek help from their family physician. Typically, the examination takes only a few minutes, at which time the doctor confirms you have a migraine and then recommends rest and an over-the-counter medication. In severe cases, the doctor may prescribe a stronger prescription medication.

These common medical treatments focus only on relieving your symptoms. They do absolutely nothing about correcting the underlying problem.

The problem with medications is they’re basically “quick fixes” that are short-lived and leave you open to potentially dangerous side effects, many of which are just now coming into focus due to new research being released.

Other treatments like physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, and even chiropractic are often ineffective, again, because they stem from a misdiagnosis or do not address both the cause and triggers at the same time.

Understand The Cause, And You’ll Understand The Solution

Migraines can seem complicated, but they are actually very simple. There is only 1 main cause for migraines: Neurological Dysfunction. There are 3 main triggers: Dietary, Musculoskeletal and/or Hormonal. To treat migraines effectively, you need to address both the cause and all 3 triggers at the same time. The reason you have probably been unsuccessful with migraine treatment is because your practitioner was not trained to deal with both the cause and all 3 triggers. With this precise combination of therapies and treatments customized to your brain and body, you could be out of pain very quickly.

Why Doesn’t My Regular Doctor Use This Treatment?

The way general practitioners are trained is to basically learn the checklist of symptoms that constitutes a disease. Then, once there is a diagnosis, choose a medication that is required for that diagnosis.

This type of care can be effective for straight-forward illness or injury, but does not address pathophysiology of complex and chronic diseases, such as migraines. It is treating the symptom, not the root cause.

The approach of a general practitioner is extremely effective for emergency or life-threatening situations, but not necessarily functional or chronic issues.

Also, this does not just go for general practitioners… Most alternative medicine practitioners use this method too! For instance, if you go to an acupuncturist, you are going to get acupuncture. If you go to a chiropractor, you are going to be adjusted. Same with many other types of treatment practices.

Dr. Adam Harcourt has spent many years earning several post-doctorates, and is earning more as we speak. This allows him to have several different types of treatments in his tool belt. For this reason, Dr. Harcourt is able to zoom out and examine a patient objectively, and, therefore, treat the patient in the way that is BEST for that individual.

Find The Right Doctor!

Dr. Adam Harcourt, owner and lead doctor of Imagine X Functional Neurology, is one of a very small handful of leading doctors in the world on Migraine treatment. Dr. Harcourt has developed one of the best and most cutting-edge Migraine programs in the world. The Imagine X Migraine Program is based on the latest migraine research (some of which is his own), his years of experience seeing migraine patients, and his passion for finding the root cause of migraines and correcting them. The program has 2 options, a 1-Week Intensive schedule or over several weeks. Our out-of-town patients are often able to be seen on the 1-Week Intensive schedule and are able to return home with remarkable improvement (results vary from person-to-person). No matter what the cause of YOUR migraines, Dr. Harcourt is able to diagnose and treat patients very effectively.

When Dr. Harcourt does your initial examination, he will perform several neurological tests to pinpoint which area of the brain is causing the breakdown that allows your migraines to occur. Then he will determine your triggers, based on your history and a thorough musculoskeletal examination. Additional testing such as balance and postural analysis, hormonal lab testing, peripheral vision awareness testing, nutritional and/or vestibular testing may be performed on a case-by-case basis. Based on all of this data, Dr. Harcourt puts together a highly customized treatment plan - no 2 cases are alike! He will present a Report of Findings, which explains what he found at your exam, your treatment options, and estimated length of care. Treatments can include Brain rehabilitation, nutritional programs, hormonal treatment, customized vestibular rehab, eye movement therapy, neuromuscular rehabilitation, non-invasive peripheral nerve stimulation, high-frequency vibratory therapy, and/or various manual therapies. He will also teach you customized at-home neurological therapies that you can do at your leisure. Many people who have tried many migraine treatments in the past that may not have seemed to help or did not work, were most likely because of not combining appropriate neurological treatments with eliminating all triggers at the same time. Based on how migraines occur, these treatments may have been done correctly, but if not done in combination with all of the other migraine triggers, may have seemed unsuccessful. By combining all of these treatments at the same time, Dr. Harcourt has created one of the most successful migraine programs in the world.
