Since my post in June about what I've tried so far this year to help my migraines, I've been keeping a list of the new things. Again, I don't seem to be getting very far. Sometimes, I feel like I'm playing mad scientist and guinea pig with myself.
Ginger-a woman at work told me she read something in a newspaper about ginger helping migraines, so I looked it up online. I tried it in capsules and mixed in water (gag) The capsules settled my stomach, but my migraines were no better.
Gelstat I came across this surfing the web and it was really hard to find in a store, so I ended up ordering online. It's ginger and feverfew in a liquid and you hold it under your tongue for sixty seconds. To me, it tasted like ass, and I couldn't get the taste out my mouth for hours. Again, my migraines were no better.
Sinol /All Natural Nasal Spray "Capsaicin is the all natural active ingredient in Sinol and is a clinically proven analgesic or pain reliever."
I found a way to stick a hot pepper up my nose. (See my post Would you do this?) But since I bought it, I haven't had the balls to try it. It scares the shit out of me. I've been trying to get some of my guy friends to try it first, thinking I can watch their reaction, but none of them will volunteer, so officially I haven't tried it, but I might get a bug up my butt and do it before the end of the year.
Free Meditation Podcasts I came across The Meditation Society of Australia on I-Tunes and they offer podcast lessons on how to meditate. I've listen to four of them so far and they are helping me to relax.
