On his blog, No More Headaches, Glenn Stewart Coles boldly states:
Welcome to my blog, written by Glenn Stewart Coles. Here you can discover articles that discuss the elimination of migraines and repetitive headaches without the use of medications. For twenty-two years I suffered from migraines and cluster headaches. Now I don’t. I do not require any medications or special treatments. I have simply eliminated migraines from my life.
There are a few problems with Coles and his writings, mainly that his theory is totally unproven and makes no sense. The bigger problem, however, is his total contempt and lack of respect for anyone who writes about Migraines and dares subscribe to beliefs other than his or — heaven forbid! — actually dare to write about any “traditional” or even many complementary treatments. He also has a huge problem with anyone who dares to actually have any type of paying job that offers information or support for sufferers of Migraines or other headache disorders.
His victim yesterday was Megan Oltman of Free My Brain. The title for this poor excuse for a blog post (which he calls an article) was “Mind Games.” He calls Oltman the “self-proclaimed Ann Landers of Migraines.” Now, Oltman has never proclaimed any such thing. Maybe Coles thinks he’s witty, but his attempts at wit fall as flat as his “cure” for Migraines and headaches.
Coles also has a web site, modestly named after himself. On that site, he claims:
I have learned that while headaches have an obvious physical outcome, there are other aspects that contribute to repetitive headaches. If these other aspects are identified and changed, the outcome can change as well. Basically it is possible to learn how to not have headaches.
Oh, right. Give me a freakin’ break. If it were that easy, someone other than Coles would have discovered this long ago. Oh, wait. That’s right. Nobody was enlightened or smart enough to realize this until Coles came along. He’s the messiah of Migraine and headache sufferers. Well, that IS the attitude he projects, and believe me, he tries to project it — A LOT.
Coles is another of those people who can’t resist posting comments on the blogs of others. Comments that are arrogant, rude, and derisive. But he can’t let it go at that. He then just can’t resist running to blog about some of these people to criticize them. Does it make him feel like a big man? Maybe. Of course, maybe it will get him sued for libel someday.
To Megan Oltman — Keep up the good work! Being attacked by G.S. Coles puts you in good company!
Oh, and something else about Coles. He’s a time traveler. Yep! HE says so. In July, he wrote an article called “Time Travel.” In that article, he states:
I have learned how to travel through time without requiring a device. Once I get there I can influence the outcome. Traveling to the past and making changes alters my present day status. Much like the Butterfly Effect, small changes to your past can have great influence on your future.
Time travel can be achieved through focused intention. Instead of traveling physically to another time, I get there through meditation…
So, why is it I think I hear the them from The Twilight Zone?
