My nutrition shake is saving me money against grocery inflation.

My grocery cost has increased all the while my nutrition shake has not.

I saved $180 per month in groceries when I kept track of this back in 2009. That was 13 years ago. No doubt my savings are much greater today. Here is a very brief rundown of my nutrition shake. So you know upfront, If you buy a bag I will get referral money.

Each nutrition shake costs $4.30. I buy 30 of them per bag at a cost of $129 per bag. The savings in groceries pays for each bag with a surplus. What saved me $180 per month in groceries 13 years ago saves me significantly more today. As the cost of groceries rises Iโ€™m able to save more money because my nutrition shakes cost remain the same.

As far as the other benefits of the nutrition shake goes.. Better health, energy, digestion, regularity, blood panels, and itโ€™s conveniently simple to whip up a shake real quick with the health benefits of plant based whole food super-food densely packed nutrition that Iโ€™ve been consuming for 13 consecutive years and counting. As an added pleasure, they taste orgasmic in my opinion. I intrinsically look forward to them every day. The general idea is I replace a meal, or two, per day with these and eat a well balanced diet the rest of the day.

If you would like to try a bag I love new customers Iโ€™d be honored if you picked up a bag from my company replicated website. I earn approx thirty bucks in referral commission if you purchase from my company replicated website in particular:

Run and Pushups Workout 5 rounds

Looking for a good workout? I’ll put this one on video to follow along with when the weather gets nice again. I did this on the treadmill yesterday and it was AWESOME. 5 rounds as fast as you can and record your time. I did this in 13 minutes on the dot. The running portions I did at 11.1 mph / 5:24 minute mile pace.

The workout after a light warmup:

.5 miles followed by 10 strict form pushups
.4 miles followed by 15 strict form pushups
.3 miles followed by 20 strict form pushups
.2 miles followed by 25 strict form pushups
.1 miles followed by 30 strict form pushups

Simple format. As the distance decreases the pushups increase respectfully. No rests except for the ones you have to take but keep them to a minimum. Pace yourself but challenge yourself. The goal is to complete this as quickly as possible. Each time you do this your new goal is to compete with yourself for a new personal best time. Subscribe to my youtube channel I have tons of workouts I’ve recorded there along with healthy recipes and lots of music <3

If You’re Doing Cardio, Are You Burning Calories From Fat?

It depends!

First if you haven’t already, tickle that like button and subscribe to my channel please it helps me a ton with the algorithms so more people can discover the help in my videos.

AS I was saying, does cardio burn calories from fat? Depending on the type of cardio you’re doing it does or it doesn’t. Are you doing aerobic or anaerobic cardio exercise? Aerobic cardio burns calories from blood sugar. Anaerobic cardio exercise burns calories from both blood sugar and from fat. In fact, anaerobic exercise has a post caloric burn affect that lasts residually for up to about 48 hours after your anaerobic workout has ended. Residual is awesome whether you’re talking about money or your health.

Aerobic vs. anaerobic in it’s simplest form is with oxygen verses without oxygen. If something is aerobic it is with oxygen. If something is anaerobic it is without oxygen. This doesn’t mean if you want to burn calories from fat you stop breathing during your workout! No! Don’t do that! Always breath especially when you’re working and and even more so when you’re anaerobically working out! If you hold your breath you will turn blue in the face until you pass out. In the context of exercise, aerobic, with oxygen, means you’re bodies system of delivering oxygen is capable of keeping up with the demand your working cells are creating for that oxygen. Anaerobic exercise means your working cells are working so hard that the body can no longer keep up with it’s delivery of oxygen to sustain that level of intensity which means you will reach momentary muscular failure typically anywhere within 30 seconds to 3 minutes maximum. And that is a great simple way to determine if you are working out aerobically or anaerobically. That is, is the exercise at the intensity you’re doing right now something you can psychically do for more or less than three minutes before you physically cannot continue without lessening the intensity or taking a break? If you physically cannot continue after say 30 seconds, a minute, a minute and a half, a couple minutes, you’re most likely working anaerobically and burning calories from both blood sugar and fat. If you can physically continue after 3 minutes you are definitely working aerobically, burning calories from blood sugar.

Some examples of aerobic exercises are slower paced ones like jogging, endurance cycling, cross country skiing, dance etc. Some examples of anaerobic exercises are fast paced, maybe more explosive in nature, like sprinting, power cycling, high intensity interval training, lifting heavy weights, jump training, stuff like that.

Some of the health benefits to anaerobically working out include not only weight loss but weight management because of the muscle toning involved in addition to the caloric burn from both blood sugar and fat, lowers blood pressure, reduces daily fatigue, activates and strengthens immune system, reduces risk of heart attack or stroke, strengthens your heart muscle, strengthens your lungs, strengthens all of your bodies delivery systems of nutrients including all your metabolic processes, strengthens the functionality of your pancreas which controls your blood sugar which in turn staves off diabetes and possible amputations, strengthens a healthy endocrine system which regulates the bodies ability to secrete healthy hormone levels, keeps you feeling young, enhances mobility, staves of Alzheimer and dementia, and on and on.

I should also mention anaerobic exercise also has the potential of putting Viagra out of business!

You can YouTube and google research the intensive health benefits all day long from anaerobic exercise it really is amazing if we just learn it and do it.

Speaking of doing it… Here is my note of caution. Two notes really. My first note is to remind you I’m not a doctor, I’m a lay person online giving you general information not specific to anybody. Do your own due diligence, research, take responsibility for your own safety.

My second note of caution is this.. If you’re not already in shape and well conditioned, anaerobic exercise could harm you. It could possibly even kill you with a sudden heart attack or stroke if you’re doing too much too soon. Risk stratification is important and should be done with a health care professional especially if you are older and or have any underlying health conditions.

That doesn’t mean you don’t get started. Only a true quitter will watch this video and conclude that quitting is the way to go. LOSER! Don’t be a loser errr I mean a quitter… Start safely from where you are and grow from there. You can build up to anaerobic condition just simply by doing a little bit each day. The mighty oak tree started as just a wimpy little seedling. Let nature teach you. You can also learn a lot just from paying attention to and really listening to your own body. That requires ego to be checked at the door at all times when you enter your workout headspace. Challenge yourself. That doesn’t mean you take it easy. You challenge yourself from what is appropriate and safe, and as you show up each and every day with that mindset, you will get better and feel stronger over time and that will motivate you to keep going and upping the ante.

On that positive note of encouragement and valuable information please don’t neglect that like button and subscribing to my channel. That really helps me out a lot with the algorithms so my content is shown to more people. If there is something you’d like to see me talk about more feel free to drop your comments.

How do you KILL a person with love and kindness?

You give them sugar and cream…

Gifts are commonly given by well intended people of sugar and cream.

It’s made the PhRMA industry a mega fortune.

Hospitals never dry up of sick patients.

It’s rare anyone ever dies of something other than Chronic Illness brought on by sugar and cream.

We are desperate to cure cancer but we fuel it with sugar and cream.

Our bodies are on fire with diseases that end in “itis” but we stoke the fires with sugar and cream.

Diabetes AND AMPUTATIONS are an epidemic but we perpetuate it with sugar and cream.

Casket makers number one spike in demand is for the short and wide caskets because our kids are being killed by sugar and cream.

Your brain has been re wired as a marketing scam by the sugar and cream you’ve been eating to find natural whole foods bland and boring so you buy more sugar and cream.

They are getting rich off of your destruction.

They are getting rich off giving your kids diabetes who will need life long medications.

The real tragedy is when you die because they lose a customer but not before they’ve mastered the art of dragging out a human life as long as possible with no meaningful nutrition to come off those money making medications.

Their number one marketing tool is willful consumer ignorance.

The last thing they want is for you to become educated because you might decide to become an independently healthy human being free of all meds.

Sugar and Cream is over simplified but sugar and dairy are the two biggest catalysts of all chronic diseases.

Rewire your brain back to nature so natural whole foods naturally contain all the sugar you need to enjoy real food again.

Eat plant based whole foods.

Exercise.

Sleep.

De-stress.

Laugh.

Love.

You can do it.

I personally was never motivated to workout and change my lifestyle until August of 2007.

What changed for me?

The lady I was dating back in 2007 got into a home health and fitness business with residual income.

The promise of an opportunity to become financially free attached to my personal fitness kicked my ass into high gear.

My first workout I was out of breath just 30 seconds in (not minutes) and a single flight of stairs would take the wind out of me.

After a few months I ran 103 flights of stairs at the Sears Tower in Chicago with no breaks =)

A couple years later of doing this in my precious MINUTES of spare time every day I became financially free and the job became an optional thing in my life because of residual money. Hooray!!!!

My then girlfriend invited me, so now I’m paying the invitation forward to you.

Requirements?

Yes, just two.

Just be EAGER to learn something new that can help you become healthier physically and financially and take ACTION (otherwise you’re just an intellectual masterbater who never creates anything).

If you feel pulled, DM / PM me so I can send you an article I wrote about it and if it turns you on you’ll be able to get started with us.

Natural Health and Organic Wealth Riches – An Invitation for you

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 It has nothing to do with money and everything to do with opening yourself up to spend your time where your heart is aligned. Passive and residual income. 98% of the country doesn't have it and is doing nothing to created it. It doesn't matter if you love or hate your job. The income quality from your job, or your self-employment, has your time tethered to being able to afford your cost of living. Passive and residual income untethers your time from affording your cost of living, your cost of luxury expenses, your cost of charity you give to, your cost of anything and everything. When your time is untethered from your income you are now able to invest more time where your hard wants to be because I actually everything is now covered. Finally you can live like a human being rather than a hamster on a wheel or a rat in a race you never get ahead of. That is the whole value of passive and residual money! It actually has nothing to do with the money but everything to do with being able to invest your time where are your heart is aligned :-) Job money, and self-employment money, forces your whole life to be revolved around the paycheck that you work for. Passive and residual money opens you up to the freedom to it put your time where your heart is aligned. What changed for me personally? In 2007 I dated a girl who started creating her own passive and residual income with her new home business dealing in Natural Health. She invited me to which I said no thank you. LOL 3 months later I said yes sign me up I need this because I'm broke and my health is going to hell in a handbasket fast. I learned from scratch because I knew nothing about any of this. Two and a half years later of doing this in my precious minutes of spare time my job became optional so I retired myself from the job racket in 2010. The natural progression is to pay it forward with an invitation for you who is reading this. If you feel pulled, private message me for my article I wrote about creating passive and residual money with natural and organic health. In my opinion it makes sense to couple this type of income with natural health because if you don't have your health then it's really hard to enjoy any new wealth. Your health IS your real wealth! So let's create your passive and residual income dealing with natural health. Private message me for the link to my article. If you like what you read and you still feel genuinely pulled, we will get started. My only requirement I put on you is to have a genuine desire to learn something new outside of the box that you're use to. Feel free to share this. Thank you! Tom P.s. When time and money are no longer limiting you what's the first thing you would love to do? As for me it was an 8-day Caribbean cruise with a balcony stateroom and that's exactly what I did :-) Imagine not having to save money or paid days off from work anymore because you have a consistent flow of passive and residual money coming in each and every week. What would you do?

The BEST tried and proven advice for migraine sufferers submitted by you =)

In addition to the video, check out some of the comments I copied and pasted over from facebook with more ideas for Migraine Headaches:

April 12, 2017Mount PleasantYour BEST tried and proven advice for migraine sufferers?

 

 

 

  • No photo description available.
  • April Marie I had a daith piercing and noticed a difference within a couple of days. Unfortunately after a few months I had some kind of problem with the piercing and it ended up working itself out. I have multiple piercings and only this one gave me a problem. I do plan to do the other side and try again. I feel even though that one dont work out, its worth trying again.
  • Stacy Hayes-Geer Joey brilliant!! I would place in Tom’s main feed so people see it. Wtf is daith btw?!?
  • Stacy Hayes-Geer April I have to say, I had a piercing before (tongue, plus ears)… Joey was unbelievable… I barely felt it, plus he just has a great energy… If you’re ever in the Boston area, you should see him <3
  • Write a reply…
  • Tracy Wardlaw Ice pack on the back of the neck and hot steamy towel over the eyes and sinuses. The hot and cold signals at the same time confuse the senses and stop the pain.
  • Christina Lou Jennings Change of eating habits

 

 

  • Heather M. Bukouras I’m prescribed imitrex but only take when this doesn’t work cuz it makes me feel sluggish. I take a long sock and fill it with rice.. I like jasmine rice for this cuz it has a better smell. I tie the sock up and throw it in microwave, checking every 30 seconds to get a temp that is comfortable cuz then I go to dark quiet room and put it on my head and it is instant relief.. or over my eyes etc.. it’s not a guarantee fix but it helped many times and didn’t have to take a pill that gave me side effects.. sounds strange but helps.. u have to constantly move around in microwave to keep rice from burning.. jasmine rice to me jus has more of a pleasant, soothing smell but any rice will work. Dried beans work as well
  • Kristin Rose Kelly Pressure points work pretty good for me
  • Samantha Smead Following for info
  • Lisa Williams Sleep. That, and when you feel it in beginning stages, give yourself brainfreeze. I’m completely serious here- it will hurt like a *bark!* at first, but for me it has curbed a migraine or outright stopped it. <3 hope that helps!
  • Della Rita Rossetti Due to getting hit by a car on my bike when I was 7 years old, I’ve had to deal with chronic migraines ever since. After studying about migraines and joining groups online, I found my panacea in one mineral. Magnesium. Working with a health food store, I found a balance of taking a high powered vitamin with zinc, and a larger dose of magnesium twice a day. You also have to understand your own “triggers,” and that includes stress, the weather, and mostly, food and drinks triggers. I now have my chronic migraines under control, for the first time in my life. Accupuncture works wonders on migraines, and so does cranial work by chiropractors. Sleep is also very essential, I use something I learned in college, known as “fight or flight.” response. And now, I go straight to bed and to sleep, as soon as a chronic migraine hits me. It does something to the brain! And I drink one cup of coffee in the morning, and this has stopped my migraine patterns (the caffeine). Hope the info helps others!
  • Teresa Rasmussen Pink Himalayan salt
  • Amy Stanley Francis Daith piercings
  • Tina Louise Schwind Migraines are different for everyone but for me I also have a bleed in my brain that that causes seizure activity.. Topamax.. Nerve block and steroid blocks.. .. nothing has worked as well as a clean environment pesticides cleaning equipment and smells… healthy food lots of water and a healthy living.. ice caps work really really well!! Magnesium zinc are great to have in your system !staying away from the foods that are your trigger points . Caffeine seems to really help me!!

 

 

  • Verena Stirnemann-Funnell depends what the underlaying cause is. There is a never ending list of triggers ranging from hormonal imbalance to head trauma, eye problem, food allergies, hereditary and so much more…
    I found that with some sufferers regular massage can stop it coming on. It works with most, but not all
  • Angelia DeStephen Dark room cold compress
  • Valorie Stoeber Hot tea and Ibuprofen as soon as it’s coming on.

 

 

  • Holly Kent Ice pack on my head, lavender oil or peppermint, and lay (relax)in a cold dark room… a long time ago I was at a dance competition and got a horrible migraine, so I went back to my hotel to lay down. I had left over meatballs and thought I needed food so I took two bites of one then slugged down some Pepsi. Laid down for an hour and I was cured lol!! I thought for years meatballs and Pepsi was my cure!! ?

 

  • Heide WithaBe Pepsi and meatballs yeahyah!! One time a couple worker handed me can of Coke to “slam”. I thought to self, are u effin kidding me? Slammed it took the edge off (apparently it’s the caffeine) that affects the pain…Hmmm?? Ironic bc coffee gives me migraine ??

 

  • Heide WithaBe CO-WORKER*
  • Holly Kent Yes. There’s caffeine in excedrin migraine! I can take that but sometimes it causes a second migraine.. ?
  • Heide WithaBe In all honesty thank God I haven’t had a migraine in about 2 years….Suffered horrible migraine’s all my years before this…A miracle of sorts ?
  • Write a reply…
  • Rรญa Failla I mean, to another location far away, preferably one more spacious and full of lots of organic fruits n veggies
  • Heide WithaBe Ice pack on head cold towel around back of neck dark room no noise phone silent lightly Trace forehead temples hairline with slightest touch of fingers…Avoid onions! Meditate ?
  • Sammy Ray Marshall Stop eating, drinking anything with inflammatory properties, within 2 months and usually a lot sooner most people who get them on a regular basis will usually noticing them become less frequent and stop all togeather.
  • Patricia Sobczyk Magnesium, Epsom salt soak
  • Michelle Long My husband studied clinical hypnosis. When we start to get a migraine we shorten our breathing which only makes it worse. Our bodies lock up cause we know the pain is coming and we stop drinking water which dehydrates us and makes it worse. Deep breathing, meditating and drinking plenty of water will help

Though you could try putting peppermint at the base of your neck at the back of your had comma switching between cold and hot packs, turning out lights and laying down, drinking a lot of water, putting your feet in hot water to bring the blood flow down… acupuncture helps to sometimes for me, but I haven’t had much success with acupressure. I hope this helps. The struggles real ?
  • Nina Fields-pourvaranttee excedrine, coca, cola and a steaming towel on your forehead and the back of your neck-it works!

 

 

  • Jenny Lynn There’s an old Lakota remedy someone told me about involving a steamed towel and drinking milk, but then also throwing the milk up…I have the directions if you want them. This lady had tried everything.

 

 

  • Jenny Lynn Hungarian doctor, my bad:

    An old Hungarian doctor couple shared this with my family when I was little.
    When you feel the aura of the vision ( equilibrium off kilter) this is what you should do:

    Drink a glass of milk โ€“ 8 oz or so
    Warm a wet washcloth in the microwave as hot as your skin can stand it without burning

    Find a quiet dark place to put up your feet, lay your head back/down and place that cloth on the back of your neck for 7 min or so

    Wash your hands and stick your finger down your throat until the watery part of the milk comes up.- stop.

    Take a couple of whatever poison you take for headaches, ibuprophen, execdrin, etcโ€ฆ and in about 20-30 min (rest for this long), you should be ready to function with a very minimal amount of head pain, if any.

    Your eyes may be a touch sensitive to light but not as much as a full blown migraine.
    Doing this a few times should stop your migraines, but also find your triggers and keep those things that trigger out of your body, cheese, wine, chocolate, ??

  • Sarah Jango Put hands and feet in very warm water (as hot as comfortably tolerated) and put ice on the back of the neck for 15 minutes. Keeps eyes closed and do slow deep breathing. This helps the pressure built up in the brain to decrease and be dispersed to other parts of the body. Drink 8oz of water before and after. 95% of the time this helps my daughter who has had debilitating migraines for over 2 years.

 

  • Mel Wheeler Bairos I have tried this and it didn’t work for me, but I don’t think I didn’t long enough. Thank you for the advice

 

  • Carolyn Clapper I wish weed was legal in Wisconsin ๐Ÿ™
  • Erika Smith Whole food plant based diet free from chemical additives. I once suffered at least 4 days per week, eventually they became crippling. Meds were completely ineffective. I’ll occasionally get a menstrual migraine & found heat on my back & ice on my neck to be a tremendous help ?
  • Heather Cruz Haven’t found anything yet. Can’t take any pain meds at all. I use an ice pack all over my head. Dehabilitating. I’ll watch this post for tips!

Migraines: Not Just Another Headache

  • Gina Lucariello It’s different for everyone, and so what works will be different. Also deoends on what stage you are in. If I’m at the beginning I can do caffeine, Aleve, and sleep in a dark room, low noise, and sleep it off…. I’ll be fine after sleep. But if its progressed, pain can be too much or vomitimg is too much to go to sleep. Then you can be in it for days. Different meds work at different stages, most of them are harsh on the body and leave you in bed anyway. You have to know what your own symptoms are and trial and error with what works. At the point your in it for the long haul, I’ve discovered a certain level of ‘taking yourself out of your body’ helps quite a bit and makes the episodes shorter. Acupuncture is a big help, even as a preventative. Mostly though, best advice is learn your triggers and avoid them at all costs. Because once it starts, there is no telling where its going to take you.

 

  • Gina Lucariello Incidentally, when I was young they thought migraines were a conditiin of the blood vessels constricting and they thought if they gave patients heart medicine to control blood flow that would help. I was on Inderol for years and it messed up the electrical signaling of my heart rhythm and it caused permanent damage… still have an arrhythmia from it even decades after being off if it. Today they think of it asva nervois system disorder and related to seritonin levels in the brain. The meds are totally different today.
  • LeAnne D Eden You are right. They wanted to put me on the same things as a child but I think my parent declined. Imatrex is a vessel deconstricter and if it’s bad I take one. Good ole ice pack and a coke works too..
  • Gina Lucariello Back then Imitrex was injection only. I had to go to the hospital to get it. After the mess of my younger years I did no meds for the next decade or so. I recently agreed to carry emergency meds, but still wont rake anything everyday.
  • Gina Lucariello And I’m so glad you didn’t take it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Deanna Irvin I was getting migraines a couple of times a week to the point where I would puke. Then had to lay in the dark and the sound of ANYTHING would intensify it. Went to an ENT and they did Ct scan and found that my sphenoid sinus cavity (the one in the back) was completely full and compacted. I had surgery two days later to have it drained. For three years I didn’t have any headaches. It was amazing. It was like a whole new life. He said this is a surgery that might have to be repeated every four or five years. I’m just now starting to get headaches again. It has been exactly 4 years.

 

 

  • Deanna Irvin Yw!! Most ENTs always look at the front sinusesโ€ฆthat’s what they were looking for on mine and he happened to catch part of it in a scan so they did another one on my back one and that’s when they found the problem!
  • Cydney Bott Do you know if its possible to not have surgery?
  • Deanna Irvin I’m sure it is….. in my case I had to bc it was compacted full…..might be worth going to the ENT though

  • Stephanie Harris Changing my diet. No sugar, dairy or gluten. Check your environment. Toxic black mold ( often hidden) can wreak havoc on your health. Proflavonol c-100 or 200 can help! Taking the best supplements consistently. Getting fresh air, grounding at the beach. Frankincense or lavender oil (high grade) rubbed on temples and bridge of nose, massage, acupuncture. Detoxing!!!

  • October Ramirez Mine includes big pharma, which will most likely have me crucified again on your posts.
    I suffer from chronic and menstrual migraines. I have 25-30 migraine days a months. Sometimes have them 73 days consecutively.
    I try baths. Menthol bubble bath. The daith piercing, ice/ heat treatment.
    I get the Botox injections every three months, no progress.
    I take relpax, it helps. I take a sumitriptan injections, they work, and I can’t throw them up.
    They don’t get rid of my migraines, they make it so I can function. So I can be the best mom I can be. I tried acupressure and acupuncture to no avail.
    I hope to have better medications available to relieve more of my symptoms, for a longer time. I don’t know if I’m 16 or 20+ days into my current migraine. My medicine makes it so I can function, but I have had a headache/ migraine free day as long as I can remember. My mother remembers me complaining of my head hurting at 3 and 4.

  • Angela Blank Johnson It depends how bad. I did everything! Everything listed here & more. They were a mix including cluster headaches which are even more intense, about 20-25 days a month.
    They would go for days in end at times & result in an ER visit.
    All the things listed are great, but if no relief comes to you, surgery…

  • Mena Christina Russell Two people told me that eating something very cold to induce brain freeze stops them.
    Mine stopped when I stopped using things with man-made fragrance and chemicals and when I eliminated bad or processed foods. Also staying away from other chemicals used for other things, like paint, sealers and adhesives.

  • Barbara Rose Well mine is not proven but it helps for me: alternating between hot and cold compress. Dark room, no noise, rest. And just like Sarah said put hands/feet in warm water!! Def helped me!! And if you can tolerate caffeine, maybe a little of that. I can’t have caffeine but in the past when i could, i would drink a bit of coffee.

  • Wendy Jasper I am a chronic migraine sufferer and have been for years. I have tried everything on the market and holistic remedies. The final two things on the list are a daith piercing and Botox. I am already doing the Botox therapy and have not had a migraine in a year. I had three or four a week that were debilitating prior to that. I am now planning an appointment with a friend who does piercing to get the daith done. I have heard that the two together have stopped them entirely for some of my friends that have similar problems.

  • Valerie Townsend I’m not sure why, but I used to have severe headaches……took pain killers and whatever I could find that was recommended. Then the headaches changed into ocular migraines that have no pain of any significance. Now I take nothing. Drink lots of water, do yoga. Stay away from cane sugar. Headaches amount to nothing. Pass in about 15 minutes. It’s all good now.

  • Erica McGee If you can catch it at the onset, 2 advil and about 4 oz of a caffeine product. A bit of a nap, if you can. Also you need to figure out if it is your sinuses or an actual headache.
    if it is sinuses, heat applied to your sinus cavities, under your eyes and the baking of your skull.

  • Christina Love Plummer Excedrin, hot epsom salt bath, cold wash cloth on head, soothing oils like peppermint, eucalyptus or lavender on your neck (make special blends at health food stores….especially for head or neck pain) a nap (if possible) and or massage also works wonders ?

  • Elaine Cormany I just posted 2x articles on my timeline about the ‘wonder” of aspirin. I have proven to myself for many years as a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory agent as well as a perfect sleep aid. I would definitely read the articles and try aspirin, if you haven’t already. Of course, each of us reacts to things differently.

Lori Jorgensen24:39 Good morning Tom! Of course it depends on what is causing migrane…
stress induced: essential oil blend with peppermint on pulse points and temples, hydrate with alkaline water, lay down or meditate.
Allergy induced: breathe steam with peppermint or eucalyptus oil, rinsing sinuses with salt water/netipot, chiropractic adjustments to drain sinus cavities, pressure points on face/head.
Coffee or caffeinated tea usually helps me for minor headaches on a daily basis.

Double shot of caffeine – I usally have Starbucks can from store, but it does actually help. Bought an infuser to put lavendar oil for restlful sleep helps. ๐Ÿ™‚ Heard about daith piercing in ear… have tried but it hurts and I let it close up. lol. I may try again, but I know has it been helpful for many if pierced in the right spot. Also Epson salt / lavendar bath (found at Walmart) can help relieve them as well. Also someone told me peppermint oil, place on thumb and put right under roof of mouth under front teeth – may be hot, but can take it right away.
