Natural & Safe Headache & Migraine Relief
Do you suffer from headaches and migraines?
Ellen has since we were teenagers, but for the first time in her life she has been able to treat them quickly, effectively, and naturally, with doTERRA essential oils.
I have suffered migraines since I was an adolescent, and with greater frequency as an adult. My migraines are caused by a back problem that I treat with regular chiropractic sessions. Throughout both my pregnancies I had to deal with headaches on an almost daily basis. I had taken so much paracetamol and ibuprofen (not while pregnant) that it got to the point that it was hardly helping anymore.
Whenever I felt a migraine coming on (I get the tell-tale “aura” in my vision and start to feel dazed and nauseous) I would have to immediately stop what I was doing, leave work, take as much painkillers as possible and go find a quiet, dark room to sleep in. The pain would last for at least 8 hours and often into the next day. Since discovering doTERRA, I can now manage the pain and other symptoms quickly, and I am able to carry on with my day.
I use the tension blend on my temples and the back of my neck, and put a drop of frankincense on the roof of my mouth. Diffusing peppermint and/or frankincense helps too. I will probably need to repeat this protocol 2-3 times in the first hour, but usually the pain will then have subsided or disappeared completely. Within a few hours, it feels like the migraine never occurred. This still astonishes me!
I have also found that since taking doTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality supplements daily, I get far fewer headaches and migraines than I used to. In fact I only get them now when I have skipped a visit or 2 with my chiropractor, but in the past I would never be able to miss an appointment because the migraines would be too severe. I wish I had found doTERRA years ago! Ellen x
