Pseudo Tumor Cerebri

Overview

Pseudotumor cerebri (SOO-doh-too-mur SER-uh-bry) occurs when the pressure inside the skull (intracranial pressure) increases for no apparent reason. Symptoms mimic those of a brain tumor, but no tumor is present. Pseudotumor cerebri can occur in children and adults, but it’s most common in obese women of childbearing age.

When no underlying cause for the increased intracranial pressure can be discovered, pseudotumor cerebri may also be called idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

The increased intracranial pressure associated with pseudotumor cerebri can cause swelling of the optic nerve and may result in vision loss.

Pseudotumor cerebri signs and symptoms may include:

  • Moderate to severe headaches that may originate behind the eyes, wake the patient from sleep and worsen with eye movement
  • Ringing in the ears that pulses in time with the heartbeat
  • Nausea, vomiting or dizziness
  • Blurred or dimmed vision
  • Brief episodes of blindness, lasting only a few seconds and affecting one or both eyes (visual obscurations)
  • Difficulty seeing to the side
  • Double vision (diplopia)
  • Seeing light flashes (photopsia)
  • Neck, shoulder or back pain

The exact cause of pseudotumor cerebri in most individuals is unknown, but it is believed to be linked to an excess amount of cerebrospinal fluid within the bony confines of your skull.

The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid, which acts like a cushion to protect these vital tissues from injury. This fluid is produced in the brain and eventually is absorbed into the bloodstream. The increased intracranial pressure of pseudotumor cerebri may be a result of a problem in this absorption process.

In general, your intracranial pressure increases when the contents of your skull exceed its capacity.

Recent evidence indicates that the majority of people with pseudotumor cerebri have a narrowing (stenosis) in two large sinuses in the brain (transverse sinuses), but it’s not clear whether the narrowing is a cause or effect of the condition.

Weight loss may lead to improvement of the symptoms associated with pseudo tumor cerebri, so try to enjoy a healthy, balanced diet and incorporate some moderate exercise into your day.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health protocols

Detoxification Therapy:

  • Eliminate Candida: Click here to find out how
  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
  • Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com/ Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic.  Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water.   It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.
  • Go on a fast to clear your system of toxic waste  www.wecarespa.com

Hydrotherapy:

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  Read more about colonics by clicking here.  Find a practitioner here.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state.  During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water www.drinkrealwater.com/
  • Take a bath as often as possible up to once a day with two litres of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide. shoppingcart.purehealthsystems.com/?Click=4464

Do not drink diet soda or consume any diet food containing artificial sweeteners. NutraSweet has been implicated in raising cerebral pressure. You will find this in yogurts, drinks, and many other products.

Choose fresh salads, fresh fruit, and juices and pick foods that are lowest in sodium and highest in potassium. Add bananas, strawberries and raisins to your daily cereal and drink citrus juices. When you take your orange juice, don’t drink it straight. Instead-cut it with water to reduce the calories and further boost your water intake. Carry raisins and bananas for snacking and to abort tingling in your extremities.

Avoid cold cuts and highly-processed foods. Make friends with beans and vegetarian meals. Don’t be afraid to haunt the ethnic foods sections of your supermarket. You will find identical beans, rice and spices to what is marketed to Americans at a fraction of the cost.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.

Supplements:

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day nc.vitaminstrength.com for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here kevintrudeaudailylifesessentials.com/
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Vegetarian

Herbs

Lavender: A great overall headache remedy that works for tension and neck tweaks and even for hormonally caused headaches.

Licorice: Specific for kidney yin deficiency caused headaches, it will probably work well for general adrenal insufficiency headaches as well.

Ginger: For cold headaches, and those caused by external influences such as viruses. Also seems to work really great for headaches caused by circulatory congestion and cold, stuck sinus infections. Also works well as a migraine preventative by keeping blood vessels dilated.

Clematis: A migraine and cluster headache specialty, but will often work in other headaches as well.

Dandelion: Another heat clearing herb specific to liver/digestive headaches, or where there’s lots of damp heat stagnating in the body.

Goldenrod: Externally, the oil on the neck and skull can relieve intense muscular pain. This works on arthritis, pulled or strained muscles, better than more popular herbs like SJW or Meadowsweet for these purposes in my experience.

Ambrosia (ragweed): Sinus headaches with stuffiness.

Rose Petal: for hot, damp, congested headaches that are often accompanied by feverishness, hot flashes, gas and bloating.

Mullein Flower & Root: For all kind of neck/back induced headaches, also great for tension and digestive caused headaches.

Elder Flower: For deep, hot, tense headaches.

Osha: Headache with altitude sickness, inability to get enough oxygen.

Other

Exercise:

Yoga – The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

Qigong – Is a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.
