Cerebral circulation complex
For migraine prevention and migraines with diffuse pain. Also, for the acceleration of remission, catamenial (hormonal) migraines, and tension headaches (calming effect).
– Tanacetum parthenium (Feverfew): This herb’s main active ingredient is parthenolide, a sesquiterpene lactone, mainly used in the prevention of migraines. The primary mode of action is centred on an inhibitory effect on platelet aggregation, preventing the major release of serotonin implicated in pathophysiological migraine onset. This action reinforces alder’s antiplatelet action and effect on circulatory migraines.
– Alnus glutinosa (European alder): This bud extract is an excellent remedy for the circulatory system. It thins the blood and alleviates blood stasis. It is thus a unique remedy in the treatment of circulatory, acute, and chronic migraines. It contributes to the rebalancing of cerebral circulation, which explains its useful in cases of cerebral ischemia (see aura). Alder bud extract also has a vascular level antiinflammatory action that helps minimise the consequences of rebound vasodilation.
– Corylus avellana (Hazel): Being a global hypocoagulant and thus frequent staple in the treatment of circulatory stasis, this extract can also play a part in the fight against migraines. Hazel remains the bud of choice in migraine treatment due to its recalibrating effect on the nervous system. All the while having a calming effect (“yin” bud recommended for times of stress), it is prescribed in cases of autonomic imbalances. In the physiopathology of migraines, disorders of the autonomic nervous system play a key role. At the emotional level, hazel bud forms a beautiful union with feverfew’s rebalancing effect.
– Rosa canina (Dog rose): Though this bud is primarily known for its respiratory level action, few know it for its effectiveness against allergies (asthma and headaches of allergic origin). Professor Pitéra finds it is effective against treatment-resistant migraines and headaches, which are often found to have significant allergic components.
– Increases recovery time and helps prevent an attack.
– Balances emotions (limbic system).
– Acts on a hormonal level (menstrual or catamenial migraines) and provides a calming effect (tension headache).
– Prevents platelet aggregation and consecutive hyperserotoninergia.
