Hey it’s Friday and this post basically wasn’t going to happen but since I made a promise to myself that I would write a blog entry a day the show must go on. Many of you may not be aware but I suffer from really bad migraines. It’s pretty much been this way since I was a teenager. As a child they started out as headaches then grew into migraines. The norm for me is I’ll wake up with a slight one and throughout the day it grows until I’m forced to simply take a nap which I hate doing in the day time but today I had to lay down for an hour or so because the pain on my right side was unbearable. Here is where it gets tricky. The pain on the right went away and now I have it on my left side. I know what your thinking. Why not go to the doctor? We’ll I have and they don’t know whats wrong however they do prescribe me medicine that cost over $500. Yep! That’s the cost with no to minimum insurance. Hey! My life as an entrepreneur so over the years I have discovered some different ways to help subdue my migraines. Today I’m sharing with you a few things that help me cope with my migraines. Please by all means share any of yours that I have not tried so that I can add those to my list of migraine experiments.
#1 COCA-COLA AND SALTED PEANUTS
I have no medical background to back up this claim however I can contest that over the years this has been a God send for both my teenage son and I. We normally keep mini cans of Coca-Cola in the car or somewhere in the house along with packs of salted peanuts. There’s nothing like an ice-cold can of coke and a bag of peanuts.
I discovered the My-graStick years ago while in Whole Foods in search of something all natural to assist with my migraines. The size of the stick is very small and perfect for your purse or even your pocket. The stick has a soothing feel upon application. My-grastick has a take-along roller-ball stick that contains 100 pure and natural steam-distilled peppermint and lavender essential oils. Each stick lasts for more than 100 applications. Simply apply gentle strokes to acupressure points such as the temples forehead and nape of the neck.
#3 THERMAL-AID HEADACHE RELIEF
I was recently introduced to the Thermal-Aid brand the latter of last year while working with them on a campaign. This has worked for me many times. It’s literally RELIEF IN MINUTES! Thermal-Aid treats pain, muscle tension and light sensitivity simultaneously for fast, dependable, welcome relief in minutes. No pills. No side effects. I love that it was created by a Board-certified Neurologist, the Thermal-Aid Headache System is clinically proven to relieve tension and migraine headaches.
#4 LITTLE MOON ESSENTIALS ACHING HEAD RUB™
Aching Head Rub™ is a strong aromatic salve that soothes serious headache pain. The menthol helps provide a cooling relief and the essential oils of lavender and marjoram are specific remedies for all types of headaches and stress. Rub your headache away, naturally!
#5 ACULIEF WEARABLE ACUPRESSURE
Aculief is a one-time purchase that lasts forever. It uses your body’s own endorphins to heal headaches naturally. I was happy to learn upon research that it’s an Award-Winning, Doctor Approved Wearable Acupressure™. Aculief provides pressure to the LI4 acupressure point. The LI4 has been used for thousands of years to provide natural headache and tension relief as well as promote your body’s natural energy.
