”Suddenly I could seriously take part in both school and weekend activities. The migraine has really for seven years made my school work difficult and when my friends had a hangover it with me provoke an attack of migraine.”
A magnet on the forehead and clips in the ears!
”It started with a slight headache which gradually became worse. That it was migraine I suffered from was however difficult to establish,” Charlotte tells.
”My own doctor thought that it was a sinusitis and prescribed penicillin and later I was referred to Holstebro Hospital where I three or four times was scanned. The doctors would not exclude that it might be a migraine but until they were sure they would not let me have the medicine I asked for.
Afterwards I tried many different things., among others I was treated with acupuncture in the back of my head and in my face with no result. Another alternative therapist had no doubt about the diagnosis and he placed clips in my ears and a magnet on my forehead without doing me any good.”
My aunt suggested to go to Gram
”At one time my aunt suggested that I should go with her to The Hugo Nielsen Institute where she her self has been treated for several years, We went there every two weeks and after some treatments the attacks of migraine came at rare intervals and was less violent.
Now that I have got eleven treatments I am fine and need no more speculate the coming of the next attack. It might suddenly happen morning or night and the attacks lasted from one hour to four days. At one time both my mother and my doctor suggested that I dropped the pill, and as Hugo Nielsen supported the idea because of the imbalance of my body, I did it.
That I finally became free from my migraine is just wonderful,” Charlotte ends her statement.
