Welcome to my “migraine headache” natural remedies site. I really hope that you will find a variety of natural and healthy ways to help manage and hopefully take the pain out of migraine headaches.
Behind My Migraines
My first career was a very physical one in the performing arts and fitness industry. I worked extremely hard with my flexibility, stretching and exercising daily. Being young I didn’t stop to think of the toll I was taking on my body at the time.
Looking back at this now many years later, I can see that I had had many injuries and perhaps I had not always taken the right path to recovery during that time. There had been a lot of strain placed on my ligaments and joints. This meant that areas such as my back, neck and shoulders had taken a real battering physically and as I grew older the pain in these areas would come back to taunt me.
My mid-20s arrived and I decided to make a career change. My new career role was a full time, 45+ hours a week, sit down in an office chair all day job. So, here I was now, sitting at a desk all day, every day. Physically, everything started to tighten up and at the end of a day, I would feel tired and sore. I started to suffer from neck and upper back pain, tightness and stiffness. Then my migraine headaches started and continued to follow me for many years to come.
Eventually, I left full-time employment and became a mum. But the migraines continued on and off, sometimes they were so bad I couldn’t do anything but take medication and go to sleep because I couldn’t physically function. I went to my Doctor numerous times for checkups. I had some scans to check that there was no sinister underlying cause for these migraine headaches. But nothing was found and I came to realize it was something I was going to have to deal with and manage myself.
To add to the problem, a couple of years ago I had an accident and ended up with whiplash. During my recovery from the accident, my migraine headaches increased in frequency and become almost a daily occurrence for a while. I have had to work with my body towards recovery and I know that it will be something I now have to take a positive step towards managing for many years to come. I can feel when a migraine is near. Symptoms of blotchy eyes, a heavy tired feeling, tightness around my head or eyes.
One thing is for sure, I didn’t want to take strong pharmacy medicines every time I get migraine pain. I want to be kind to my body and look after it for the years to come. So, I decided to look into what can be done to help me deal with migraine pain naturally, and look into what might be the cause of my migraine headaches.
