    Erin: Hi, and welcome to the Chronic Headache & Migraine Summit. I’m Erin Knight, one of your hosts. And today, we’ll be hearing from Dr. Jay Davidson.
Dr. Jay Davidson is a doctor focusing on a natural, functional medicine approach. He’s also a popular speaker, #1 international- bestselling author, husband, father, former radio talk show host, and church elder.
Dr. Jay is admired for his ability
to bridge the gap between the scientific health community and the lay person. His vision to see all of the details and recommend simple, straightforward instructions to his clients has gained him tremendous respect among his colleagues.
He’s an expert on genomics, detoxification, and chronic Lyme disease so I’ve invited him to
this event to help us understand the connection between these things and chronic headaches
and migraines. So welcome to the summit, Dr. Jay Davidson.
Thank you so much for sharing with us today!
Dr. Jay: Yeah, thanks for having me on, Erin. It’s a pleasure to be here.
Erin: So I hear you started out in a chiropractic role, as a chiropractor. How did you decide to get into functional medicine? What
prompted that?
Dr. Jay: Yeah. It definitely was
not something I just woke up and said one day, “Hey, I’m going to
get into functional medicine and into a whole new world.” It was more just based out of my wife’s health struggles. So my wife and I graduated from chiropractic school. We opened an office in Wisconsin— Milwaukee, Wisconsin area, and helped a lot of people, very large volume, over 600 visits a week.
And was, I would say, successful in helping a lot of people.
And when my daughter was born
in 2012, on July 4th, the bottom
fell out. My wife couldn’t heal. Everything just stopped and changed. And, of course, so she had Lyme disease when she was seven years old. And they didn’t understand what it was and, after
a while, figured it out. And ended up, she was in a coma for six weeks. And there was just a lot of health issues in her past.
And as soon as that bottom fell out, one of the first things we thought about was, “What if this is Lyme disease again?” And then, the other thing that we had lurking that
we knew about was an issue, but couldn’t figure out a way to detox. So it was heavy metal toxicity. And so it was basically when my wife was on her deathbed that I’m like, “You know, this is, this is my focus. This is my primary thing to figure out.” And that is what shifted my focus from the structural correction
chiropractic world to more of what is probably termed the functional medicine-type world.
Erin: Sure. Yeah, because you, like many of us, you have this journey that you’re on. And you keep looking for answers. And eventually, you’ll come to something that helps. So you found that you had to address chronic Lyme disease and heavy metals to move past that. Could
you tell us more about this? What she was going through when you decided to look into this? Was she suffering with headaches and migraines herself?
Dr. Jay: Yeah, so I know this is the Headache & Migraine Summit.
And my wife was—when I met
her, she could tell you when it was going to rain. That the pressure would change. And she would get a headache. And it would knock her out. Of course, just meeting her, I’m like, “What’s going on?” And that continued.
And so there was a lot of, what I would consider, warning signs or other signs and symptoms that she struggled with before the “bottom fell out” leading up to her having our daughter. She wasn’t able to fly on an airplane for about four years. It was probably about two to maybe three years before my daughter was born. But she wasn’t able to fly just because of the massive anxiety, the pressure that would happen. Just the thought of it.
