Struggling with chronic headaches can be debilitating, constantly interrupting your work, school, and personal life. You may have found that even with medication, there is no relief. This creates a vicious cycle of pain and stress, which can be difficult to break, with no end in sight. If you have a history of migraines, you know how difficult it can be to find relief.
Our headache cycle-breaker is a uniquely developed form of treatment that helps to end the merciless headache pain and restore efficacy of medication. This approach combines our detoxifying IV infusion with our natural therapies to relieve your cells of the toxic build up that occurs from metabolites.
By addressing the root causes of your migraines and providing personalized care, our headache cycle-breaker treatment can help you take control of your headaches and lead a higher quality life.
Symptoms of a chronic headache cycle
This type of migraine headache occurs in cycles, with symptoms occurring on a regular basis over a prolonged period. While there are many headache conditions, a headache cycle doesn’t refer to a specific type of headache, rather the persistence of pain and resistance to medication.
Because a cycle induces frequent headaches, this disrupts your daily activities much more severely than an occasional headache does.
The symptoms of a headache cycle can vary from person to person, but some common symptoms include:
- Resistance to headache medication
- Persistent headaches with no end
- Throbbing or pulsating head pain
- Light sensitivity
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fatigue or exhaustion
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Difficulty concentrating or thinking clearly
What causes headache cycles
Migraine attacks are disruptive and painful but imagine having a constant headache for years on end. Unfortunately, this is a reality for some patients who struggle with chronic headache cycles. One common problem is missing the “golden moment” to take medication when the headache first starts. If this happens, medications may not work effectively, and the headache cycle can continue indefinitely.
Breaking the cycle is crucial, as it can prevent patients from suffering for years with constant pain. The added lack of sleep and stress can also contribute to your migraine symptoms, worsening the pain if not treated.
If you’re struggling with chronic migraines, it’s important to seek professional help to end recurrent episodes. It is not uncommon for us to see patients who have had constant headaches for upwards of 10-15 years, before contacting us.
Why does medication stop working?
Medication is often used as an acute treatment option and is meant to be taken at the onset of pain. Those who suffer from a high frequency of headaches may often miss this “golden moment,” causing the medication to lose its efficacy. This can happen when the onset comes just before you wake up, or at a time when you may not have access to your medication.
As you continually take medication for chronic headaches, whether it be over-the-counter pain relievers or NSAIDS, the toxic build-up begins to accumulate as a byproduct of your body’s metabolism, ramping up inflammation, and rendering medication useless. This further emphasizes the importance of preventive therapies, so that these headache cycles don’t begin.
Why is detoxing necessary?
Detoxification alleviates headaches by removing toxic byproducts that accumulate causing inflammation and pain. The body increases its metabolism during such times, leading to the generation of numerous toxic byproducts that can clog up the system. The body can only get rid of so much waste, and when it reaches its limit, it gets overwhelmed.
NAD and glutathione are the main workers that help the body eliminate toxins. However, when there are too many toxins, the body gets clogged up, leading to inflammation and headaches. Therefore, it is crucial to detoxify to help the body rid itself of the harmful byproducts, restore effectivity of medication, and prevent headaches.
Our headache cycle-breaker
NAD and glutathione are the most important ingredients in our uniquely developed headache cycle-breaker cocktail, designed to prime your body for healing and cleanse your system of toxic build-up that causes the resistance to medication and the inflammation causing your pain.
Our course of treatment begins with three weeks of nutrient courses detoxifying your body in steps and alleviating your chronic headache cycle. As we rid your body of toxins, chronic migraines become less severe and frequent.
As we progress with treatment, you will be monitored and placed on a specialized plan to prevent daily headache. This natural detoxification process prevents medication overuse headaches and is meant to reduce long-term frequency of headache, no matter the headache type.

While traditional IV infusions can provide relief, they often come with significant side effects. These infusions typically include medications like dihydroergotamine (DHT), valproic acid, and steroids. Unfortunately, these medications can cause liver damage, constrict blood vessels, and even lead to stroke or heart attack. With such serious potential consequences, we place importance on exploring alternative treatments, preventive treatment, and finding the root cause of these severe headaches.
