Migraines-what type

3 days ago

Migraines - What type do you have?

When most people hear the word migraine, they think of a severe, very painful headache. What they may not know is that there are many different types of migraines, all having different symptoms. So how do you know which one you suffer from?

Let’s breakdown a few of the most common types of migraines.

Migraine without Aura

Migraine without aura is the most common type of migraine, and often is associated with a woman's menstrual cycle. Typically, people with this type of migraine have more frequent attacks and migraine attacks are more disabling than those who have migraine with aura. The symptoms range from pulsing or throbbing pain on one side of the head, pain that is worsened by physical activity, along with nausea and vomiting.

Cluster headaches

Cluster headaches are one of the most severe types of pain that a human can experience. With cluster headaches, you may feel a burning pain around and above your eyes, at your temples, and even moving toward the back of your head. You’ll often also get red or swollen eyes, among other symptoms. Because they occur in such a large area and may provoke other symptoms, cluster headaches can be the most irritating type headache experienced and most suffered by men.

Hemiplegic Migraine

If you have ever had a migraine that felt more like a stroke, it could possibly be a Hemiplegic Migraine. Those who experience this type of migraine develop weakness on one side of the body, often with visual aura symptoms and a “pins and needles” sensation on one side of the body. It can last for as little as a few hours to several days. Similar to typical aura without headache, Hemiplegic Migraine doesn’t always include the severe head pain.

There are over 9 common migraines, these three being the most common experienced. Whether you suffer from Cluster Headaches, a Hemiplegic Migraine or the most common, Migraine without Aura - Migraine Miracle is here to help!

Migraine Miracle uses Cold Stone Therapy and Aromatherapy to reduce, if not eliminate Migraines all-together. The inhalation of essential oils stimulates the brain’s limbic system. As a result, the brain releases chemicals, causing you to feel better. Performing specific pressure point massage in conjunction with aromatherapy may result in relaxation and have a calming effect.

Benefit of Aromatherapy

The Benefit of Aromatherapy for Migraines

There is a big difference between Migraines and a “regular” headache. The intensity, duration, and the strength of the pain as well as the side effects differentiates the two.

If you are a migraine sufferer, you like many others have searched high and low for relief, most likely to no avail. Migraine Miracle was developed to help those who suffer, find natural relief once and for all.

How is aromatherapy used to alleviate Migraines?

Aromatherapy is an ancient art and science of applying essential oils to the body to promote health and harmony of the mind, body, and spirit.

Ancient cultures, dating back nearly 6,000 years, used essential oils for healing, therapy, and hygiene, as well as for spiritual and ritualistic purposes.

How it Works

Without realizing it, one of your favorite nostalgic memories is probably linked to aromatherapy. The smell of cookies baking in Grandma’s kitchen is an example. Your childhood memory induces the happiness, comfort and love you felt then. That is the principle behind aromatherapy.

The inhalation of essentials oils stimulates the brain’s limbic system, which is involved in the formation of long-term memory, and is closely associated with the olfactory structures that have to do with the sense of smell. As a result, the brain releases chemicals, causing you to feel better. Performing specific pressure point massage in conjunction with aromatherapy may result in relaxation and have a calming effect.

Our Four Proprietary Essential Oil Blends

Kelly Lott’s Migraine Miracle® includes four custom blends of essential oils for the four most common headache triggers. Our proprietary blends – Food, Environment, Stress, and Hormone – were created by a Certified Medicinal Aromatherapist and Blender. Only therapeutic-grade essential oils – pure plant energy derived from herbs and plants that have been personally grown and harvested by our supplier – are used in our essential oil blends.

For more information on how Migraine Miracle utilizes the healing qualities of aromatherapy visit our website.

What are people saying about Migraine Miracle?

What are people saying about Migraine Miracle?

In the United States over 60 million people suffer from migraines. Of this amount, studies show that 2-3 million migraine sufferers are chronic. With this astonishing number, and the many migraine “relief” products on the market, how can you tell which ones work?

We believe the proof is in the pudding. Real client experiences. Those that have tried the product and experienced immediate and/or long term relief.

So what are people saying about Migraine Miracle?

  • Kelly! I took your course in Green Bay, WI (had lunch together!). I had my first cold stone client yesterday. She walked in with one eye nearly closed and came out saying this was the first thing that has worked for her after 11 years of suffering. It was thrilling.

I hope that all is well with you. Thank you for the work you do and a great seminar.

Tami W. - Massage Therapist

  • I took your class at the Indiana AMTA conference. I really enjoyed the class. Also, I am the type of person who has to practice before I can charge clients, just for my own confidence. Having said that, I contacted some of my friends through Facebook, asking for volunteers. Of course, I received several responses.

So today I had a friend who has been suffering with a migraine since last Friday. When she arrived at my house I could tell that she was in pain. So we talked and then went into the treatment room. I performed the Migraine Miracle treatment.

As I assisted her up from from her lying position, I asked how she was feeling. She said "It's GONE!”. She was so excited. And so was I . She said that she hasn't felt this good in some time.

I just wanted to thank you for perfecting this method and treatment, and having other massage therapists learn it from you. I am really excited to use it more and more. Again THANKS !!

What are the benefits of Cold Stone Therapy for Migraine Sufferers?

Often, we get asked “Why do you use cold stones to help relieve migraines?” Not only do we use cold stones, but cold stone therapy is one of three key factors in Kelly Lott’s Migraine Miracle® holistic fusion.

Our Cold Stones are specially designed handcrafted marble. Their color and structure is particularly suitable for maintaining the 36° temperature recommended for maximum relief of swollen blood vessels.

Keeping your Cold Stones in the refrigerator is convenient and provides the optimum temperature for immediate use. For professionals who might travel to their clients to provide the service, the stones can be prepared in an ice water bath, half ice and half water, to quickly bring them to the correct temperature. Further instructions for preparing and handling are included with the kits, as well as in the Use & Care Section of this website

The set of stones fit strategic positions on the head and neck to relieve migraine pressure and pounding pain. Step-by-step instructions for suggested order of placement are include in the Kits.

Adding in the use of Aromatherapy, with our therapeutic grade essential oils, and pressure point massage Migraine Miracle utilizes these three steps to help relieve migraine pain without the use of prescription drugs.

Cluster Headaches-Men who suffer

Cluster Headaches

Men suffer with these 6:1 vs women. Why?
The exact reason is not known, but we do know that a nerve in your face is involved, (trigeminal) creating intense pain around one of your eyes.
Cluster headaches can be more severe than a migraine, but they usually don't last as long. These headaches may disappear completely for months or years, but they can come back without any warning, commonly at allergy season time.
Men who have suffered a head injury or concussion may be at a higher risk of cluster headaches.
How the pain is felt: Commonly on one side, and it stays on the same side during its cycle. When a new headache cycle starts, it might switch to the opposite side, but this is rare. It is often described as a burning feeling, with a constant throbbing. You'll feel it behind or around one eye. It may spread to your forehead, temple, nose, cheek, or upper gum on that side. Tenderness of your scalp is reported and often feel your blood pulsing.
Migraine Miracle "Environment" blend will be used for migraines triggered by inside or outside environmental agitation. Pollen, air pollution, loud noises, strong odors, anything that irritates your brain and body.

Are Migraines Hereditary?

Are Migraines Hereditary?

Are migraines hereditary? Often times many wonder if they get migraines from their ancestors or if they can pass it on to their children. Although research can not solidify 100 percent that your family history plays a role in your migraines, a resounding 80 to 90 percent of those that suffer report having family members who also suffer from migraines.

This percentage is very high, so one would say yes, migraines are hereditary. Although the type and frequency of a migraine can differ largely from family member to family member.

A 2013 GWAS analysis compared the DNA of more than 23,000 migraine sufferers to the DNA of more than 95,000 individuals who do not suffer from this condition. The results were fascinating.

2 of the 12 specific areas of the DNA associated with migraines were associated only with migraines without aura. Migraines without aura are very painful, and oftentimes cause nausea and vomiting. The study also found that it was more commonly known that aura migraines were hereditary. However the GWAS analysis findings suggest that migraines without aura can be hereditary also!

Nonetheless, if you experience migraines as well as your family members, all can find relief using Kelly Lott’s Migraine Miracle Kit. With Migraine Miracle you’ll experience holistic fusion and relief for your migraine headaches.

Difference between Migraine and a Headache

7 months ago

How do I know the difference between a headache and migraine?

When you experience pain in your head it can be difficult to determine if it’s a headache or a migraine. Differentiating between the two is important so that you may learn how to prevent future attacks from occurring.

What is a headache?

A typical headache is pressure and aching in your head. The pain can range from mild to severe and most often if you experience a headache the pain is on both sides of your head. Triggers for headaches can be brought on by stress, anxiety, and muscle strain. There are different types of headaches including: cluster headaches, sinus headaches and thunderclap headaches.

What is a migraine?

Migraines are very intense headaches. Symptoms can range, but the most common are:

  • Nausea
  • Pain in the temples
  • Pain behind one ear or eye
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Vision loss or seeing spots
  • Loss of appetite
  • Vomiting

When compared to a headache, migraine pain can become very severe. Some experience such intense pain they seek care at an urgent care center or emergency room. There is a natural solution. The Migraine Miracle® healing method incorporates cold stone therapy, proprietary essential oil blends and pressure point massage. This method provides a renewed sense of balance and harmony along with dramatic relief from migraine headaches without the use of prescription drugs.

Keeping a Migraine Journal

7 months ago

Keeping a migraine journal

I often get asked “why should I keep a migraine journal?” The truth is recording details of your migraine attacks, no matter how big or small is imperative to finding out the triggers of your migraines.

What you should include in your journaling?

At the beginning you should record in your journal daily.

Notes should include:

  1. The date of your headache
  2. The time your headache started and ended
  3. Where the pain is located
  4. The type of pain (throbbing, piercing, etc.)
  5. Intensity of the pain on a scale from 1 to 10
  6. Where there any warning signals?
  7. Food and/or drink consumed before your headache began
  8. How much water you drank before the symptoms began
  9. How much sleep you got the night before

Get as detailed as possible in your journal. This helps pinpoint the triggers to help you figure out the pattern. And be sure not to rule anything out in advance. A trigger can be very sneaky.

Follow me over on Facebook where I share helpful content on Migraines and the natural and effective solution, Migraine Miracle.





What are Migraines and Migraine Miracle to The Rescue!

8 months ago

What are Migraines?

Migraines. Some say “Oh, it’s just a headache.” But to those that get migraines, it’s so much more than that. So what exactly are migraines?

Migraines are a recurring type of headache. They are characterized by severe pain that is throbbing or pulsing. They are often accompanied by other symptoms, most often debilitating in nature. For example: nausea, weakness, difficulting speaking, numbness and sensitivity to light and sound.

How long do Migraines last?

The duration of a migraine can vary from person to person. Most often an attack can last anywhere from four to seventy two hours. The symptoms may vary throughout the duration of a migraine attack.

While experiencing a migraine a person can go through four different phases, although it is possible to skin one or more of these phases. The four phases include:

  1. Prodrome - this is known as the “pre-headache.” Symptoms that are unique to the prodrome phase of migraine can include yawning, cravings for specific foods, and frequent urination.
  2. Aura - this second phase of a migraine attack typically occurs before the head pain. Approx. 25-30% of migraine sufferers experience a migraine accompanied by either a visual aura or a sensory aura.
  3. Headache - this phase is primarily the intense pain phase. Throbbing, pulsating pain, light and sound sensitivity, pain on one side of the head, and nausea or vomiting.
  4. Postdrome - the last phase of a migraine is the one most commonly referred to as the migraine hangover. Leaving sufferers feeling wrung out, absolutely exhausted, achy, difficulty concentrating and scalp sensitivity.

How can you relieve the symptoms of a Migraine?

Kelly Lott’s Migraine Miracle® is a natural, safe, holistic and uniquely instinctual method for relieving the symptoms of migraine headaches.

Cold Stone Therapy

Cold stone therapy is one of the key factors in Migraine Miracle® holistic fusion. Our Cold Stones are specially designed and hand-crafted marble. Their color and structure is particularly suitable for maintaining the 36° temperature recommended for maximum relief of swollen blood vessels.

The set of stones fit strategic positions on the head and neck to relieve migraine pressure and pounding pain.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the second key factor in the Migraine Miracle ® method. The top four triggers most commonly suffered by migrainers are: Food Allergies, Environmental Agitation, Stress and Hormonal Imbalance. Our proprietary four blends are specifically made for migraine sufferers, subtle yet extremely effective.

Aromatherapy is an ancient art and science of applying essential oils to the body to promote health and harmony of the mind, body, and spirit

The inhalation of essentials oils stimulates the brain’s limbic system, which is involved in the formation of long-term memory, and is closely associated with the olfactory structures that have to do with the sense of smell.
