Migraine, tension-type headache and cluster headache are associated with impaired energy metabolism in the brain. This fact has been known for several decades. But how do we apply this knowledge to the main questions regarding primary headaches: What causes headache and how can we heal it? In this article I review the existing evidence, and based on my personal experience of using coMra-Therapy to treat high-altitude severe headaches I propose a new view of the biology of headaches.
I often watched as my father, a professional artist, would become inspired by the play of colours in nature. Rich and strong, or subtle and whispering, the emotional impetus echoed in me whenever I looked at his paintings. Later, when I was working as a research scientist, I studied how colours in nature carried information about the health of a tree or the mineral content of rocks. But it was only after I started my research with Coherent Multi-Radiance Therapy (coMra-Therapy) that I came to a deeper understanding of colour as a universal language, and its ability to connect not only people, but even vastly different types of intelligence: for example, human thought, emotion and even the innate “instincts” of cells that make up our body. In coMra-Therapy we use colour in concert with near infrared laser light, a magnetic field and ultrasound, and all four of these components are held together by the central idea of cooperating with the body in the healing process.
