Taking Control of Migraine Pain: Tools for managing & ending the cycle.

Do you ever feel like you're constantly struggling to keep up with everyday life due to debilitating migraines?

You find yourself lying in bed with ice and essential oils on your head, hoping the pain will subside.  Eventually, you give in and take a pill, frustrated with the time wasted and the need to rely on medication.  Meanwhile, family responsibilities, household chores, work, and caring for your loved ones continue to pile up.  The anxiety sets in, stealing the joy out of your life.  You worry about the effects of medication on your health, and you know deep down that it won't bring an end to your migraines.

If this sounds all too familiar, you're not alone.

I've been there too, experiencing daily migraines for years.

But today, I'm here to share a different approach, one that can help you break free from the cycle of pain.

Managing Pain in the Short Term: While our ultimate goal is to end migraines altogether, it's essential to have tools to manage pain in the short term.  One valuable tool is reducing the toxins in your body.

Consider making small changes, such as switching out products you frequently use, like your sunscreen or soap, for cleaner alternatives.  By doing so, not only can you keep your toxic load low, but you can also reduce the chances of triggering your next migraine.

The Power of Clean Living: Reducing toxins in your environment is a powerful step toward reducing migraine frequency and severity.  Clean living involves making conscious choices about the products we use, the food we eat, and the lifestyle we lead.  Opting for natural and non-toxic alternatives can have a significant impact on your overall well-being.

Start by assessing your daily routines and identifying areas where you can make healthier choices.

Whether it's choosing organic foods, using natural cleaning products, or incorporating relaxation techniques into your daily routine, every small change can contribute to a healthier and migraine-free life.

Taking Back Control: As a migraine specialist, I've had countless conversations with women who, despite their extensive knowledge about migraines, are dissatisfied with the results they've achieved using medications.

If you want to break free from the cycle of pain and find lasting results, it's crucial to gain clarity on how medications are impacting your life.  Take the time to reflect on the impact of medications on your well-being, including their effectiveness and potential side effects.

Furthermore, consider if you're ready for a root cause approach to tackle migraines.

Addressing the underlying triggers and imbalances that contribute to migraines can lead to long-term relief.  It's about taking back control and living life on your terms, free from the constraints of migraines.

Action Step: To gain clarity on your specific migraine challenges, take a moment to write down three things that are impacted by your migraines

Start with a simple statement, then dive deeper into the specific ways migraines affect you.

For example:

  1. My migraines steal my productivity and joy.
  2. My migraines make it challenging to fulfill my responsibilities and enjoy daily activities.
  3. My migraines cause me to miss out on important moments with my loved ones.

By acknowledging these specific challenges, you're taking the first step toward understanding your unique migraine experience and finding the right solutions.

Managing and ultimately ending migraines requires a multifaceted approach.

While short-term pain management tools can provide relief, it's essential to address the root causes of your migraines for long-term results.

Embracing clean living practices, reducing toxins, and reclaiming control over your health can set you on the path to a life free from migraines.

Remember, you're not alone on this journey, and together we can discover the solutions that will bring you the relief and freedom you deserve.

What are your three things?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Debbie Waidl is the Owner of In The Balance Health Coaching LLC, and Founder of The Freedom From Migraines Method™   & The Migraine Freedom Protocol™ 
She supports busy moms living with Migraines. 

Debbie will uncover what is holding them back from migraine freedom so they can live their life pain and symptom free, work productively, spend the time they want with family and friends, and stop missing out on the things they enjoy.

A message from Debbie:
"I was once right where you are now.  100% believing there was NO WAY to end migraines and my only option was to learn how to live with them or find that magic pill that maybe would work for a while.  If anyone told me back then that I could end my pain once and for all, I would have called BS and popped another pill!

Skeptical times 10  was my middle name for sure because when you try it all and everyone tells you they can help you and they don’t.   You stop believing…  you lose HOPE!

I now realize I was approaching my migraines all backward.

I was trying to cover up symptoms versus trying to end my pain."
