I Accept Myself

June 2015 – Issue 45

The Continuing Pursuit for Migraine Elimination and Pain Reduction

June is Migraine Awareness Month!

Today is day 5 of awareness month inspirations. The title 'I Accept Myself' sounds easy - but sometimes when migraines get us down it is really hard to stay positive. So many of us suffer from depression too.

How could we not. This illness (I hate calling it that as I am totally well except for the migraines) can destroy everything we have worked for and then some.

Take some time to allow yourself a few minutes to just accept the pain. It is in your life but it does not have to control your life. It is not who you are, what you believe in, or what you stand for.

Here is the final affirmation for June:

Now just a little side note here.

Remember that the experts say that you should leave off any negative words – so your affirmation to use daily would be “I accept myself for where I am right now.” I just can't help acknowledging the pain and the migraines, I feel better when I am real. But let's practise positive statements.

My Top 3 Articles for Stopping Headaches

Here are my top 3 most popular posts for stopping headaches:

Over The Counter Migraine Medication

Stress Related Migraine Headaches

Migraine vs Headache

Essential Migraine Tools

Building resilience all starts with having a plan. A solid pain management plan. These are my four pillars of strength.

Pillar One - Information + Education = Options + Choices

Build Your Own Migraine Tool Kit - Here is my article with eleven steps on exactly how to do it yourself! It has all the forms you need to print out and step by step instructions to navigate your way through effective chronic pain management.

Pillar Two - Meditation and Biofeedback Training

I highly recommend reading Cynthia Perkin's Mindfulness Over Migraines e-book that explains the science behind mindfulness and why it helps migraines. And she explains the method step by step that she uses to eliminate her migraines in 15 minutes. Yes, you read that correctly ... eliminate in 15 minutes. It will be the best $6.99 you ever spend!

Timing is everything when aborting a migraine attack.

Wild Divine Biofeedback is an essential part of keeping my migraines at bay. Learning to control breath and body temperature could assist in reducing migraines or eliminating them all together if they are stress related. Meditation is proven to help reduce migraine attacks. This system will teach you all of that. I love mine.

Pillar Three - Eliminate Potential Food Triggers

Dr. Amy Myers Elimination Diet eCourse is much easier than doing it yourself - like I did. It is vital to find our migraine food triggers, and avoid them where ever possible. Dr. Myers is an autoimmune expert. Just what we need! This e-course will guide you every step of the way.

Pillar Four - Use Food As Medicine

Migraines and Food is so important to me, especially after spending four years studying Chinese medicine, and a few more studying nutrition. I can choose what I put in my mouth. I can be proactive and help my body with nutritious foods and staying hydrated. I have a whole Migraine Food section, that I hope you enjoy.

Share Your Migraine Stories

Remember that your contribution will help others too! We are not in this alone, even though it feels like it most of the time. Our stories and input can help each other.

For example, I heard about Naramig from a client of mine, not my doctor or any of the specialists I had seen! Two years after triptans came on the market. Two years of needless suffering.

This is a safe place to share your challenges and tell your story to people who truly understand what you are going through. Share your art to inspire us all in our time of need.
