Yes, I agree. When I found out that salt and water took away my pains I thought; 'hey-presto' a cure! But when others here said they had tried it (all be it only 2 or 3 others) and said it didn't work for them, I began to realise that ES is more complex and 5 years on I can see that it is very complex.
Now I have an added factor that chocolate (or at least Quality Street) also can increase my sensitivity!
ALSO! I have just found another cure, urr I mean helpful tip that might help some ES suffers:
Last night I happened to feel the need to bounce my head up and down to try and stop the pain, I had before tried shaking my head in desperation to get rid of the pain but it was only mildly effective. However, by bouncing up and down, by bending at the knees; Yes I know this sounds odd and perhaps even dangerous, but by doing this gently enough to just get the brain to increase its weight on the upward motion, it helped decrease the pressure in the Meninges at the top of my head.
[The Meninges (singular: meninx or 'membrane'); are the three membranes that envelop the brain and spinal cord. In mammals, the meninges are the dura mater, the arachnoid mater, and the pia mater. Cerebrospinal fluid is located in the subarachnoid space between the arachnoid mater and the pia mater. The primary function of the meninges is to protect the central nervous system.]
Then on the down ward motion it increases the pressure in this area at the top of the head. This created a sort of pumping motion in the meninges and got the fluid moving and therefore believe it allowed the saltier fluid elsewhere (as I had been taking increased salt and water over the previous weeks), to move into these areas and relieve the pain. I also think it helped flush out the fluid within in the Sulci of the brain:
[Sulci, in neuroanatomy, a sulcus (Latin: "furrow", pl. sulci) is a depression or groove in the cerebral cortex. It surrounds a gyrus (pl. gyri), creating the characteristic folded appearance of the brain in humans and other mammals.]
And boy was it a relief! Pain free at last!
I believe one or two things happened when I did this:
1. It increased the potential for electric current to be dissipated in these areas, by re-balancing the voltage potentials in this area due to the salinity being made equal around this area.
2. Allowed any fluid that had an increased amount of metal to be flushed out and therefore decreased the difference in voltage potential in this area. I say this because the pain was on the left side of my brain and face, to be more precise and since then I have been tasting a slightly metallic taste in the left side of my mouth. Although this could be a metal filling that is on that side which I might have become more sensitive to? Or God forbid it may be a sign that it is coming loose?
Anyway, I am guessing running or jogging or dancing may have a similar effect as bouncing up and down but by bouncing on the spot you can better control the pumping action and where you want the pumping to happen. This can be done (as I learnt) by making sure that where ever the pain is, that it is at the upper most point by tilting your head.
P.S. I did the bouncing trick again today after I had been on the PC several hours and the pains had come back. It worked just as well as last night and I believe/hope I am on road to full recovery again, i.e. to be pain free as I was for the last 5 years. I just need to keep up my salt and water intake, keep chocolates off the menu and eat more healthily in general.
I will do the bouncing trick anytime the pain may return.
Yippee! Very relieved!
Last night I felt that hard mass again at the centre of my brain at the top of the spinal cord like I did the night before, although during the day I am basically pain free now. Today I got some celery and ate some raw which did feel good although it's not something I like that much and when I juiced it it was one of the most disusing tasting things I've ever had. It looked and tasted like what I imagine brains would taste like, but then that is probably just what I need.
I also bought some Pomegranate juice which I like but is expensive, this seemed slightly helpful. After this I took a long bath using Dead Sea salt. I then noticed a return of the metallic taste in the left side of my mouth which I really think is a good sign now. Out all of these chewing the raw celery was best, the action of chewing helped give me some reasonably noticeable relief.
I've been told eating fruit etc whole is better than smoothies and juicing because of the importance of chewing and the pre-digestive process that goes on and the fact that the food in stomach stays longer to be absorbed more. Makes sense .
I turn off and avoid RF as much as possible at the moment and is completely off at night. The bouncing up and down trick was very effective at first but it doesn't seem as effective today. However, salt & water for me is still by far the best defence.
I'm going to take some turmeric in hot water to see if helps reduce the inflammation that I think is at the centre of my brain. Tomorrow I will get the Lemon Grass Tea and try that.
