Migraines can cause serious pain that can at times be unbearable to those who experience them. Medication is one way to help treat and prevent migraines. But medication is only part of the story. It's also important to take good care of yourself and understand how to cope with migraine pain when it strikes. You can make lifestyle choices that promote overall good health that may also reduce the frequency and severity of your migraines.
At the first sign of a migraine, you want to take a break and step away from whatever it is you are doing if possible. Turn off the lights as migraines often increase sensitivity to light and sound. Relax in a dark, quiet room and sleep if you can.
You can apply hot or cold compresses to your head or neck. Ice packs have a numbing effect, which may dull the sensation of the migraine. Hot packs and heating pads can help relax tense muscles. Warm showers or baths may have a similar effect.
You can also drink a caffeinated beverage, but be careful, as drinking too much caffeine can often lead to withdrawal headaches later on. And having caffeine too late in the day may interfere with your sleep, which can also affect migraines.
Crystals may also help provide pain relief and healing therapy. This has to do with the Vibrations Theory, that all matter vibrates on a unique frequency. This relates to crystal healing with the theory that specific crystals vibrate on frequencies that can interact with the frequencies of a human body and assist with healing. The following are some of the crystals you can try.
