Migraine Headaches - Help Relieving the Pain
Posted Sep 12 2008 8:49am
This is one of the tips I picked up while on medical leave.
You will find that practicing yoga helps alleviate pain when you feel a headache coming on:
Close your eyes,
Wrap an ace bandage around your forehead (starting at the back of your head), and across your temples and eyebrows (this will lessen the eye pressure),
Move your eyeballs away from the eyelids (they should drop back and down in their sockets,
Try to keep the bandage on for a minimum of 10 minutes.
When you are at work try this:
While seated at your desk, rest your forehead on a hard surface (like a book),
Place your head down (this softens the skin at the back of the neck),
Make sure there is a straight line between the back of the neck and shoulders,
You can now bend your arms and support your elbows on the desk,
Try inhaling and exhaling softly and quietly through your nose,
Do not hold your breath,
Make sure you keep your shoulders down (spreading your shoulder blades and moving down and away from each other),
Hold for about five minutes.
I find this helpful and prefer this to taking more medications.
I hope and pray that this post has helped someone today.
