A Traditional Connecticut Home
Tuesday, March 24, 2015
If you don't think this home is perfect, then you're wrong. It's classic and modern and fun. I love everything about it. When can I move in?
The past four days in a row I've gotten a migraine at some point during the day. If any of you struggle with migraines, you know how debilitating they can be. I've tried several different medications including preventatives that worked but had a staggering amount of side effects. I've finally found a couple of things that work for mine. By the suggestion of one of my yoga instructors I've been using peppermint oil to help rein in the migraines. You must put one or two drops of peppermint essential oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, and cup them over your nose. As you breathe the peppermint oil helps open everything up. If I can feel a migraine coming and can catch it with this technique most of the time it never comes. This also works if you are stuffed up or feeling nauseous. I've also found that Maxalt works for me. It takes a few hours but eventually my migraine goes away. Every now and then if it's a persistent one, it will come back and I have to take another one but it works better than anything else I've ever taken. Do any of you suffer from migraines? If so, how do you deal?
