van Gemert method

Recommended Posts

Busting is my prior one method for CH but I'm always curious to find solutions how to get rid of this awful disease.

As I want as much information as possible I found the van Gemert method that could solve CH. As I'm skeptic to this method and I'm not really convinced I'm curious if somebody knows this method and If somebody tried the same.

As I know my eyes are pretty good in viewing distances and nearby but I have problems reading a book. Reason is my eyes are not in line so this causes tiredness as I read books. It also could give me headaches. For me it is no problem as I can see very good but can't read books I just don't read books. The Gemert method could solve my eye problem but I'm not sure it could solve CH. It sounds fantastic as this could solve CH problems.

The Gemert method is Dutch and I don't know if there is any English institute with the same treatment.

Follow the link and google translate it from Dutch to English.

A story of a chronic CH patient:

Reilif Bonse (1976)

"" After 6 years of chronic cluster headache, I could not imagine what it was like having no headaches. ""

After a long journey through various specialists in headaches, many different therapies and medications, I came in October 2000 against the information on the Internet METHOD OF GEMERT ®.  Because I had tried so many ways to make this terrible disease to get, I checked this information skeptical.  I was certainly not convinced of the promising information I read about this therapy.  Despite my skepticism to this therapy, I have looked at me enrolled in a research.  During this study we looked at the performance of my eyes.  The investigation revealed that my one eye was dominant over the other eye, because this dominant eye as it were, looked on his own, there was an overload of the eye.  Also found that my eye deviated a bit (I looked a little cross-eyed.)

I decided to continue with the therapy, which for me meant that using custom glass was attempted to correct the deviations.  The treatment began in December 2000.  The first month I had a surge of complaints, I suppose this was because out of nowhere a big change down at my eyes.  Fortunately, this period was followed by a month, no attack of cluster headache.  For my it was unbelievable this month, after 6 years of chronic cluster headache, which for me meant that I average 1 time per day had an attack, I could not imagine what it was just a time to have no headache.  The tension on my eyes fell through the custom glass.  The strength of my glasses I noticed this change directly because I then got more attacks.  In about six months, my glasses regularly updated and every time I noticed again that the strength changed by an increase in seizures.  After this period, the strength of my glasses constantly and there was a sharp decline in attacks.  If I did I had to calm almost no attacks but as I became busier, I got more attacks.  Nowadays I have the appropriate glasses and medication (verapamil), hardly any attacks.


Another story:

Anja v / d Laan-Buys (1952)

"Cluster Headache"

Cluster Headache

The Hague, 17/01/2006

I suffered for nine years on cluster headache.  First it started with an occasional attack at night, but after a few years the attacks came more often.  The last time it was already so bad that it is 2 to 3 weeks in a row every night attacks were 1 to 2.  And those attacks are so horrible that you would die at that moment, with that indescribable.

I had already gone through all the regular circuit.

I also used spray to attack immigrants, had an oxygen bottle beside my bed, and swallowed Topamax (topiramate) 350 mg per day.  That lit the attacks, but they took it away.

Then I heard through the grapevine of the GEMERT EMETHODE ®.  I had tried everything and thought this is the last remaining.  All costs, this is my last straw.

In May 2005 I had had my 1ebehandeling you want and not believing in July my last attack.  It is now January 2006 and still have no attacks.  Now I'm off my medications and am now building at 125 mg and it's still great.

I can not say enough how grateful I am that Mr. Van Gemert he and his colleagues I have cured my cluster headaches.

Sincerely,

Anja v / d Laan-Buys


Mr.  Ruud Bouwman (1944)

"" After six treatments considerably less expense. ""

In December 2001 I went for the first time Mr. Van Gemert was an intake.  I had the address from a colleague of my wife, this fellow was on the Internet website of Van Gemert views.

I suffered from cluster headaches.  After the intake, I decided to start the therapy and I must say that the treatment has gone perfectly, I am very satisfied.

In the meantime I had a few headaches, but a lot less violent than the cluster headaches I used to suffer from it.  I then had six treatments, then I was stable and the therapy is completed.  I would check after half year, but when I went back early because my symptoms came back again.  They gave me another glass were measured and since then, it very well.  I need now only once every year to check out.

What about the licorice ? The Portugese wizard and the overweight Shaman (who owned a laundry mat) the meditation and yoga - the chinese herbalist -the iodine lady - the pierced gum theory - tooth extraction and mercury filling replacement - all these things I have done. Why not a pair of Dutch X-Ray specs ! I'm game.

I'd get some glasses for the reading, but screw that method, unless they're willing to let you try it for free and pay them once it works.  ;)

Keeping my glasses on keeps me from getting some screwed up headaches, but doesn't help my CH one bit.

For some reason, when I heard "the cupping guy" my mind got completely the wrong picture. I was thinking "Why would a reach around help CH?"

Then I remembered what cupping was.

Oops.  ;D
