Indiana Woman Shares Brilliant Life Pro Hack To Cure Every Migraine
No one likes migraines. They ruin your entire day. The painful headaches have been rated the top-three most common illnesses for adults. While there are medications and supplements you can take to relieve the pain, they don’t always work. Adults still suffer from the pain—to the point where they don’t feel like participating in any activity. Nothing seems to help. Luckily, in February 2019, an Indiana woman came up with the perfect remedy to get rid of a migraine as soon as you notice the pain. All you need is a helpful house tool to get started.
Suffering From Headaches
Brazil, Indiana native Elizabeth Hayes has had her fair share of migraines over the years. She had all of the symptoms: intense throbbing or dull aching pain on one or both sides of the head, nausea, fatigue, stiff or tender neck, lightheadedness, blurred vision, and pain that worsens with physical activity. After suffering from a migraine for 12 hours, Hayes knew she had to find a solution as soon as possible.
Hayes decided to seek relief from her pain. She tried many painkillers and home remedies, but her pain persisted. Nothing seemed to work. Medicine didn’t help. Drinking coffee, applying ice packs, and eating whole grains also didn’t help. She knew she had to try something else, but she didn’t know where to start. But she knew one thing: she couldn’t keep having migraines like this. They were too painful.
The Perfect Home Remedy
Hayes began searching online for devices to cure migraines. However, she decided not to order a device and instead use a product she already owned at her home—a food clip. She knew most people own food clips, typically used for bags of potato chips. By clasping the food clip between her thumb and forefinger, Hayes discovered her pain was relieved in less than 20 minutes.
Hayes wasn’t sure if the trick would work. Surprised that the remedy worked so well, she shared the hack on Facebook to help other migraine sufferers. She knew she wasn’t alone and that maybe she could help others. Her post went viral, reaching close to 300,000 Facebook users. People soon realized the pressure between the thumb and forefinger helped relieve the pain. This is true, but why does it work? Why is this the best way to relieve migraines?
Why It Works
If this remedy sounds familiar to you, that’s probably because it is often referred to as another practice: acupressure. The ancient form of Chinese medicine acts on the belief that every organ in the human body is connected to a pressure point. By applying physical pressure to these points, people feel relief from their troubling symptoms. The pressure is enough to restore the natural flow of energy in the body, enough to combat any illness or pain you may be experiencing.
For Hayes, her trick was the perfect remedy. According to acupressure, the area between the thumb and forefinger, known as the He Gu, is one of the most sensitive pressure points of the human body. It’s one of the only places that can help you get relief from stress and migraines. It may be hard to believe, but the point is connected to the large intestine, which can also help with digestive problems. If you have an upset stomach or other digestive complications, apply pressure between the thumb and forefinger and you should find relief as soon as possible.
It turns out you don’t have to visit an acupressure therapist or massage therapist to relieve your pain. All you need is a food clip and you’re good to go. You can get rid of your migraines as soon as possible, and everyone should jump for joy for that news.
