I recently, well within the last year, have been experiencing debilitating headaches once a month around my female cycle time. I have been using every alternative modality I can think of to lessen the effect these headaches have on me, but still, I have not been able to eradicate them from my body, just reduce their effects. If you've ever had a debilitating temple headache like this, you know what I'm talking about. I know that body chemistry wise we are all different and what may work for one person, doesn't necessarily mean it will work for everyone. So try these remedies and see what you get.
From my Raphologist, Ashley DePaul, I use a Pineal Blend twice a day from Christara made of Pure dried Yellow Mustard Seed and cold pressed Garcinia. She also recommends taking 1/4 tsp Real Salt. I tried that yesterday. I felt like my body needed the salt, but I did not register any headache relief.
From Yoga, I do lots of deep breathing and send my breath to the area of the temple that is causing me pain.
From Tai Chi, I do joint moving warmups to help keep my blood flowing through out my body and do a round of the Short Form to rebalance all my meridians.
From Acupressure, I do this Headache/Migraine relief massage.
