Migraine is characterized by recurrent chronic headaches . Accompanying symptoms are nausea, vomiting, photophobia, greater sensitivity to sounds, etc. Frequent migraine headaches have a very negative effect on the overall quality of life.
From the point of view of alternative medicine, migraines have several types of triggers, but from the point of view of psychosomatics, they all have one thing in common – stress : “I have my head full of worries, problems, I have it all over my head.”
Several acupuncture pathways (meridians) pass through the human head , especially the gallbladder pathway and the bladder pathway. If one of these organs is dysfunctional, it will be reflected in the acupuncture pathway that belongs to it, in the area of its course.
Migraine and gallbladder
If the headache starts in the area of the temples, forehead and behind the eyes , it is probably a migraine triggered by the gallbladder. We call it a “migraine from a stressed gallbladder.” It can also be caused by food that irritates your gallbladder and bile ducts. Slightly misleading may be that you may not have the typical digestive problems associated with the gallbladder, but this organ can still be dysfunctional and cause migraines.
If you suffer from this type of migraine and always take a chemical analgesic (pink pain pill), you end up in a vicious circle, as these drugs have a negative effect on the liver and gallbladder . So the result is pain relief, but again worsening of the gallbladder and gradually more frequent and more severe migraines.
What with this?
First and foremost, try to eliminate as much of your life as possible from chemicals that have a negative effect on the liver (medicines including contraception, food poisons, alcohol, pastries and sugary drinks). Next, try to eliminate your life stress.
There are a lot of relaxation exercises , relaxation breathing exercises from yoga work very well, with which you relax the diaphragm and internal organs.
The next step is to stimulate the acupuncture points of the gallbladder , which should be shown to you by an expert. However, there is a universal so-called C point, which is located 3 fingers below the navel 30 ° to the left. This point has a preventive effect, but can significantly reduce headaches. We press 10-15 times.
Migraine and bladder
If the headache begins in the area of the crown and occiput , it is usually a problem with the bladder, and therefore with the cervical spine, which is related to the acupuncture pathway of the bladder. In this case, the same recommendations apply as for the first type of migraine, but it is necessary to monitor fluid intake , “do not rest on the bladder” and include a quality massage to relax the cervical spine. Sometimes this type of migraine is a signal of a depleted kidney.
The third type of migraine is the so-called hormonal. It is associated with hormonal changes in women (before menstruation and sometimes during ovulation). Even this type of migraine can be managed very well naturally, by using the products in times of crisis.
Chronic inflammation of the nasal and frontal sinuses is a common cause of headaches . These are most often associated with chronic allergies and in the autumn and winter also with colds. Chronic sinusitis can cause not only headaches but also tinnitus . Inhalation can bring quick relief in this case:
Put in the pot:
- 2 liters of water
- 3 handfuls of dried elderflower
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
Cook everything for one minute and then inhale in the classic way using a towel or other blanket over your head. We inhale vapors through the nose so that they get into the cavities the most.
After the inhalation, we no longer go outside and remain calm in the warmth of home.
Whatever type of migraine bothers you, try these tips and replace medications with herbal remedies. You will see that it works!
