When you go to your doctor, and all she or he does for you is give you yet ANOTHER medication to help reduce the symptoms of your disease, that's disease-care. A doctor's job is to figure out where you're broken, what's not working, and what can be done about it. When did medicine turn into just temporarily putting a bandage on something and sending someone out the door? It's a terrible practice, and in fact, in my personal opinion, should be considered mal-practice! . . . #healthcare #truth #diseases #diseaseprevention #practice #practicewhatyoupreach #medicine #donoharm #donopharm #mig#migrainelife #mig#migrainesrt #migraine #migraines #migrainerelief #migrainessuck #fightforhealth #yourmigrainedoctor #nor#norwalkct #norwalk #con#connecticut #conn

Every since I left gym this morning, I’ve had a headache but couldn’t take my medicine because I had errands to run and it has gotten worse and now I’m full on migraine 😭 😢 . After this hot shower, I’m about to take this good ole migraine medicine and be in another world (it takes me all the way down almost zombie like) and pray that when I wake up in morning, the migraine will be gone. #migraine #migrainessuck #weneedacureformigraines #migrainesupport #migrainesufferer

Okay I know. I understand what you’re thinking, “Madeline stop bombarding us with posts”. I’m sorry I know. This is the last one for today. I have had a splitting headache all day and I can never remember my favorite diffuser combination for when I want to curl up in bed and just hope sleep will take it away. So here it is! These four oils help me immediately when I have a headache!

It can be exhausting trying to figure out why symptoms pop up. It’s easy to feel at fault, but sometimes they just happen, no matter how careful we are to avoid triggers. It’s okay and it’s not your fault! Negative self talk will only make it harder. Just like healing comes in waves, so do flare ups 🌊 #mindfulmigraine #themindfulnessgirl #onedayatatime #wellnesswarrior #twentysomething #chronicallycourageous #createcalm #mindbodyconnection #breathe #innerpeace #chronicillness #thisischronicillness #chronichope #mig#migrainewarrior #migrainesupport #migraine #chronicmigraineawareness #migraineawareness #ic #interstitialcystitis #anxiety #mentalhealth #invisibleillnessawareness

I usually make my own beef bone broth, but this #organic chicken #bonebroth from @pacificfoods is the next best thing. The flavor is great, ginger helps with digestion and inflammation, comes in this easy single serving box, and most importantly - no added junk! #bonebrothheals #healingwithfood #21dsd #realfood #protein #healthychoices #pacificfoods #yum

Morning migrainez 🤯 When you wake up and before even opening your eyes you know a baddie has set in and you’re going to need at least a couple of hours of meds and ice before you can even get out of bed 🙈 I’ve had several of these sneaky slammers the past week and they always are tough on my emotions 😔 Worry about what the rest of the day will look like and adjusting my mindset to handle the pain is difficult...but possible! The most empowering thing I’ve learned from migraine is that I have power over my thoughts, even when I don’t have control of my pain 💭 Doing a little better now and moving slowly forward with my day with as much patience and love as possible 💞 via @skybanyes #mindfulmigraine #themindfulnessgirl #mordormigraine #megagraine #morningmigraine #mig#migraine #migraineproblems #migrainesolutions #onedayatatime #wellnesswarrior #twentysomething #chronicallycourageous #createcalm #mindbodyconnection #breathe #innerpeace #chronicillness #thisischronicillness #chronichope #migrainewarrior #migrainesupport #migraine #chronicmigraineawareness #migraineawareness #ic #interstitialcystitis #anxiety #mentalhealth #invisibleillnessawareness

BIOFEEDBACK⁉️ • We often see new patients who have 1) have never heard of Biofeedback or 2) are unaware of the benefits of biofeedback to patients who suffer from headaches! ⬇️⬇️⬇️ Biofeedback for headache/migraine is a scientifically proven, non drug therapy that patients use to control symptoms and frequency. It is a acquired skill that can be applied on demand to aid in preventing, reducing or stopping a headache. • Body temperature changes and increased muscle tension are the body’s response to stress and strain. Biofeedback training provides you with instant information on how these involuntary responses react to stress, in turn allowing you to observe and modify your reaction. (I.e patients who can recognize and reduce muscle tension and/or warm the temperature of their hands experience fewer and less severe attacks). • After you have used biofeedback to develop your ability to recognize and reduce tension, you will be able to apply anywhere at any time! • For more information on Biofeedback and how we utilize it here at the DHC for our patients please visit our website!

When my head is splitting my soul does its best to put it back together 🙏🧘‍♀️ . . . 5 days of migraine is a lot for me, not a record though. I’m wearing my warrior gear today to vanquish this damn thing. I haven’t had a migraine since Thanksgiving because I’ve been trying to avoid my triggers like the plague. I failed to avoid two of them last Friday and had a very strong and prolonged kundalini surge I was unprepared for after coming out of a week long depression- which triggered a migraine the last time. Bottom line, this could’ve been avoided. I gave my thoughts on the whole thing, if you’re interested swipe on through (keeping in mind I’m at the tail end of this migraine and may not make a lot of sense...) . . . #migraine #migrainerelief #migrainelife #yogacures #mig#migrainessuck #migraines #migrainesupport #migrainecure #spiritualgangster #kundalini #kundaliniyoga #lotuspose #yogaforlife #yogafam #yogalove #goddessintraining #beginneryogi #yogajourney #yogapractice #yogalife #yogaaddict #yogagram #instayoga #yogalover #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #yogagirl #yogamom #yogaphotography #yogapracticenotyogaperfect

The most important thing we can do for ourselves is to maintain our hope and to remain kind to ourselves. It's easy to let the world bully us. This is an invisible illness, and at the end of the day, being kind to ourselves and realizing we still have HOPE is incredibly powerful. #hope #neverquit #nevergiveup #keepsearching #keepfighting #migraine #migraines #migrainesupport #spo#spoonieng #spoonie #loveyourbody #yourmigrainedoctor #connecticut #nor#norwalka> #norwalk

Hanging with this little weirdo 🐶 a bit today since my little experienced her first migraine yesterday. She's home recovering today and since this is her first experience with one I wanted to be home to observe her. Stay tuned to find out how essential oils🌱 played a part in supporting her.

We all know headaches are not the same. Here are some great natural solutions for different kinds of headaches: •Sinus headache: rub a drop or 2 of digestzen onto the bridge of your nose and sinuses to relieve that sinus pressure •Migraine: put a drop of Frankincense onto the roof of your mouth, push upwards, and hold for 30 seconds •Tension: put 2 drops of copaiba under your tongue morning and evening consistently to reduce the frequently occurring tension/stress headaches •Base of neck headache: rub a drop or 2 of deep blue onto the hairline/base of the neck as these headaches are more muscle related

Migraine sufferers, I am one of you now I guess. Either that or something hostile is taking over my brain and being a real extra dick about it. HELP. WHAT DO YOU DO FOR THIS?! Been going since Saturday night around 7. Been debating going to the ER ever since. But what can they even do? My parents only have a couple of days left here, I cannot spend the rest of that time holding my head and moaning in bed. It's got to be very annoying for everyone. But seriously I want to jump off the roof this has to ennnnnnd. #pleasehelp #holyshit #sledgehammerplease

Do you suffer from MIGRAINES? Or VERTIGO? I’ve dealt with vertigo & to take supplements that have helped it be few and far between is literally life changing. 🙌🏼 #themoreyouknow This is what Donna has to say about her Migraines, Vertigo and Plexus journey thus far: "Today was my visit with my neurologist. I want to back track for a bit. I have dealt with horrible migraines all my life. As I got older the migraines were getting worse. I would have to go to the hospital by ambulance, because I couldn't stand up and had dry heaves for hours. The last time, I had to go to the hospital once a week for three weeks. It was killing me. A very smart ER Doctor figured out what was happening, because for years I was told I was having vertigo. He told me, you are having silent migraines and he sent me to the neurologist. So, he put me on some very strong meds. I was on them for a year and a half before I started Plexus Slim. Five months on the Plexus Slim, Probio 5 , Biocleanse and the Xfactor I realized I was not having any vertigo symptoms. I also, was told by the ears, nose and throat specialist that my vertigo would only get worse..an be 100% disabled. I can laugh about all this now. As of today, I HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN TOLD I NO LONGER HAVE TO COME SEE MY NEUROLOGIST. I AM OFF THE MEDS. THANK YOU PLEXUS . Feeling very blessed." Gut health is were it is at!!!

I’ve been surfing some pretty gnarly migraine waves lately. The waves lull and crash throughout the day and I am trying my best to watch my emotions as this happens. Sometimes the emotional frustration from riding big waves adds to our physical pain. Trying to step back, breathe, and flow instead of fight the present moment.

I took this photo 2 1/2 years ago in the middle of my journey to workout more & eat better. I lost a total of 20 lbs. and felt full of energy and not full of pain. I am finishing up my trip abroad tomorrow & when I get back I plan to start at square one again. I have so much anxiety about working out regularly again, the first two months are hell...more migraine, more stomaches, more cravings. BUT I did it once and I will do it again. Please let me know any tips or accounts you think I should follow that will help me! I need most help with diet 🤓 . . . #migraine #migraines #chr#chronicpain #health #migrainewarrior #wellness #mindfulness #hypermobility #breathe #migrainesupport #chronicpain #chronicillness #mentalhealth #anxiety #migraineawareness #tmj #Kopfschmerzen #inv#invisibleillness #spoonie #nature #calm #relax #invisibleillness #perfectlyimperfect #weightloss #exercise

Nothing worse than making a huge climb with a pounding migraine, right!? I was all ready to make the trek up to the fortress yesterday when a sudden headache started. It was ramping up fast, but I knew I really wanted to make it to the top. Luckily I had a very understanding travel companion who waited with me for an hour before my medicine kicked in. Relpax makes me so sluggish & I didn't want the headache to come back so we took it slow, but I made it to the top & got to see something amazing. . . . #migraine #migraines #chr#chronicpain #health #migrainewarrior #wellness #mindfulness #hypermobility #breathe #migrainesupport #chronicpain #chronicillness #mentalhealth #anxiety #migraineawareness #tmj #Kopfschmerzen #spoonie #nature #calm #relax #invisibleillness #travel #germany #explore

@Reg@Regranna> from @mig@migrainemagick911 - @Regrann from @migrainemagick911 - How are you feeling today? Todays inspiration originated by a ton of people "dying on the vine" the last couple of days" with migraines. The after affects of the full moon are strong this month, coupled with crazy up/down weather and the vulnerable spot in your cycle and whatever else is in going on in our lives set is up for migraine like a perfect storm. My body is my vehicle that allows me to navigate life. Just like my cah (Boston-speak) or computer if warning lights are going off or its slowing down, those are signals to me communicating something is outta wack. Especially after a #fullmoon sometimes there is a recovery period (definitely after a #migraine-feels like recovering from day surgery) it feels like every thing I do feels like a fish swimming upstream that's a sign from my body I need to give in and rest. Because you know there are other days when you can get more stuff done than anyone else you know. (If you get #chronicmigraines and have been tracking your energy & migraines...you may have just finished with a big flare-up and now it should calm down ( except we just got whacked w/a huge storm on the east coast)...super important to rest & conserve your energy b/c in about a week when the moon is dark you may be vulnerable to another attack.... Scoop is our bodies have our own rythyms, frequencies, cycles, karma,and then then so does everyone else...These patterns aren't personal they are part of our energetic anatomy. So when our body needs rest...REST...You have permission to rest. AND ENJOY IT.(see vibe higher than migraine post). I get you have a million things to do. When you rest you recharge and you can get more done effortlessly than trying to challenge your own energy rhythms.#endo #fibro #lyme #migraines #nerves #biohack #headstrong - #migraineawareness #migrainesupport #migrainemagick⬇️ more - #reg#regrann - #regrann

Kinetisense! At Providence we use this program for for assessing posture. Patients will be examined on the initial visit and a follow up at the end of 6 weeks to view postural changes while being under care. Also we will begin to incorporate concussion related body balance testing very soon for our patients so they can view the changes they have experienced while being under care. Just some of the few things Kinetisense offers to help us take better care of our patients. Dr Kuhn and I decided to play around with this amazing program after work today.
