So if you have ever had a migraine I’m
sure you know how debilitating and painful and intense
they can really be. I have several family members who get
awful migraines that put them in bed for you know days at a time and there’s not
a ton out there in terms of body based and herbal based support for preventing
migraines or for decreasing the intensity and length of them once they
have set in so I wanted to share just some resources and knowledge that I’ve
come upon in case it might be helpful for you or your loved one who suffers
from migraines and so we’ll start with a practice which is good for migraines, it’s
good for headaches and it’s just really good for decompressing and taking some
of the pressure from the head and so you let’s take the earlobes, pulled them down
toward the shoulders and slightly back. I like to do this practice actually laying
down on my back, so you could do that. I’m going to stay seated for now so I can look
at you and talk in the video but you could definitely do this laying down.
Just pull the earlobes down toward the shoulders and really slightly
back like barely back at all but in a slight way. So if you’re laying down,
slightly down toward the floor and from here I’ll just pause and hold and let
the jaw slightly open and we’ll do a yawn. So just call in a yawn and you can
do that a couple of times, especially if you already have a direct migraine. Now
some other preventative things here for migraines from an Ayurvedic lens, they’re
typically really related to a lot of pitta and pitta is the fire element and
so preventively, if you’re getting migraines, you’re going to want to start
looking at how to decrease pitta from your diet and your lifestyle and there’s
a lot of resources out there I can point you to we just don’t have
time to go into all of the ways that you can decrease and pacify pitta here in
this video but know that that is very effective and helpful for a lot of
people with migraines. Now another great preventive measure and this is actually
straight from Dr. Lad’s book and he’s the main Ayurvedic guru, head
teacher amazing Ayurvedic yogi in the United States and his book is there any
way to book home remedies and he has a great breakfast recipe for preventive
measures and this is especially if you tend to get migraines later on in the
day, like the afternoon or the evening, First thing you do when you wake up is
take a very ripe banana. You’ll want to chop it up, well peel it, chop it up, add
1tsp of warm ghee and a little pinch of cardamom and a teaspoon of date sugar.
Mix it all together and eat it first thing in the morning and it’s really
simple but it has been very effective for people in helping migraines and
headaches not set in and so you can try that out see if it works for you and if
it does, then great, you have another tool in your tool belt. Another piece that
you’ll want to consider in terms of migraines is that it might be best for a
little bit of time, especially if you’re in an acute state of pain, to just avoid
direct sunlight because that’s going to bring more pitta up in your system. You
can also take some warm ghee or oil and put it actually up the nose … like a you
can get like one of those nose squirters and squirt some oil up your nose and
that’s going to help soothe the sinus passageways but also directly move into
the brain and finally and I have some videos of this from a couple months ago,
you might want to consider doing some cooling breathing practices such as
Shitali or Shitkari and again you can find those in my Instagram TV
library if you just scroll back a couple months, you’ll be
able to find and practice those and those are great practices for pacifying pitta
and I would use them more preventative ly I’m not sure I would suggest using
them when there’s a direct migraine happening unless you find that to be
helpful. So leave comments and questions below and let me know what you think, let
me know if any of this is helpful for you and have a wonderful rest of your
week. I’ll talk to you again soon bye.
