A migraine headache is a form of headache which is typically considered the most intense and disabling. Migraines are chronic in nature, meaning that they happen often for the individual that is affected. Typically Migraines are one sided in nature, meaning that the pain is felt on one side of the head.

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is a degenerative neuropsychiatric disease, which results in a progressive loss of first mental, then physical functioning. Dementia, which gets worse over time, not due to any external or psychological cause, is its primary and most pervasive symptom. Its causes are still unknown, but is considered to be physiological in nature.

Autism is classically defined as a disorder of the neurological system which begins showing signs during early development. According to the DSM, autism is one of the five types of pervasive developmental disorders (otherwise known as autism spectrum disorder). The causes and physiology of autism are unknown, and the psychiatric symptoms are behavioral in nature rather than clinical. It is actually believed now that there are several types of distinct conditions that manifest themselves in similar ways rather than a single diagnosis. In alternative medicine, many are indicating that autism itself is caused by mercury, either pre-natal or introduced with certain types of immunizations. If this is the case, then it is possible that what some think of as genuine autism symptoms, may in itself be mercury toxicity.

The term "Stroke" corresponds to four possible western medical conditions,... cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral thrombosis, cerebral embolism, and spasm of a cerebral vessel. Typically all four of these conditions fall under the greater classification of "Cerebrovascular Accident," which is a pathologic state of the blood vessels in the brain.

Neuropathy is a disease of the peripheral nervous system. Many people with diabetes eventually develop nerve damage. The three major forms of nerve damage are: peripheral neuropathy, autonomic neuropathy, auditory neuropathy, and mononeuropathy. The most common form is peripheral neuropathy, which mainly affects the feet and legs.

Autonomic Neuropathy

Autonomic neuropathy is a disease of the non-voluntary, non-sensory nervous system affecting mostly the internal organs such as the bladder muscles, the cardiovascular system, the digestive tract, and the genital organs. These nerves are not under a person's conscious control and function automatically. They do not run through the spinal cord.

Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathies are neuropathic disorders that are associated with diabetes mellitus. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (vasa nervorum). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy; mononeuropathy; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful polyneuropathy; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.

Peripheral Neuropathy

The medical term for damage to nerves of the peripheral nervous system is peripheral neuropathy, which may be caused either by diseases of the nerve or from the side-effects of systemic illness. Peripheral neuropathies vary in their presentation and origin, and may affect the nerve or the neuromuscular junction.

A concussion is a trauma to the head, which may or may not include injury to the brain. The incidence of concussion is 300 per 100 000 per year (0.3%), with a mortality of 25/100 000 in North America and 9/100 000 in Britain.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease (PD; paralysis agitans) is a neurodegenerative disease of the substantia nigra (an area in the basal ganglia of the brain). The disease was first discovered and its symptoms documented in 1817 (Essay on the Shaking Palsy) by the British physician Dr. James Parkinson; the associated biochemical changes in the brain of patients were identified in the 1960s. Some genes were identified only recently; others remain unknown.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease, a non-contagious chronic autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system which can present with a variety of neurological symptoms occurring in attacks or slowly progressing over time. It has no cure yet and the exact cause remains unknown. Due to its effects of the nervous system, it can lead to long-term impaired mobility and disability in the more severe cases.

Minimata Disease

Minamata disease is a neurological syndrome caused by severe mercury poisoning. Symptoms include ataxia, sensory disturbance in the hands and feet, damage to vision and hearing, weakness, and in extreme cases, paralysis and death.
