for Migraine Sufferers

The Continuing Pursuit for Migraine Elimination and Pain Reduction
I am so NOT ready for Christmas this year. How did it come up so fast?
I know that answer, there is no snow here. I've lived in Australia for over twenty years and being originally from Canada, I just can't get used of Christmas without snow.
Anyway, instead of getting a sugar headache from too many sweets, here are some of my posts for other Christmas present ideas for your beloved migraine sufferer.
Gifts For Migraine Sufferers
Ice Packs for Migraine Relief
The Top 6 Migraine Books To Read ASAP
Other Migraine Products
All these gifts say "I love you whether you have a migraine or not!"
And I just have to mention the e-book I am reading right now.
It has given me new hope for living a pain free life.
Just one more gift idea for Chrissy.
I hope this helps if you feel stuck this year.
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 post 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 building an effective chronic pain management strategy.
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. Do you know your tipping point? You will after you read her book. It changed everything for me.
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, especially 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 e-Course
is much easier than doing it yourself - like I did. It is vital to find our migraine food triggers, and then 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 Safe Food As Medicine
is so important to me, especially because it is the one thing I can control. I can choose what I put in my mouth. And after spending four years studying Chinese medicine and a few more studying nutrition, I know how crucial it is to healing.
I can be proactive and help my body with nutritious foods and staying hydrated. This e-book
Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: How To Treat and Prevent Migraines Without Medicines By Angela A. Stanton Ph.D.
is an exceptional one for biochemical balancing. Something every migraine sufferer should know, in my opinion.
I have a whole migraine food section that I hope you enjoy. Come check out the migraine safe recipes (drinks too).
Post Your Story
As you know pain is very distracting and disruptive. It is very hard to think straight with a migraine even if the pain phase is covered by your abortive, you may still experience confusion (or other migraine symptoms).
