Getting rid of a headache- without pills.

This morning I woke up with a headache.

My first instinct was to curl right back under my blanket and hope that it would go away. But with all the reading I’ve been doing recently about energy flow (bear with me) and how our bodies give us pain when we’re holding on to certain emotions I decided to take some action and figure out if there’s any truth to it.

I’m pretty sure my headache was a result of a dream I had. There is someone that I miss terribly from my life and dreaming about that person has somehow brought tension into my body, specifically my brain.

I was debating the best ways to remove this little ‘emotional clot’ as I think of it. The gym seemed too hardcore for my fragile little head this morning so I opted for a yoga video on youtube with an emphasis on ‘energy flow’.

And do you know what? It bloody well worked.

I’ve managed to get oxygen to every corner of my body resulting in my energy flowing again rather than stagnating, and my headache has gone. I also feel like I was holding on to tension in other areas of my body and I now feel lighter in body and mind.

I’m not saying yoga is the only remedy, but I think moving in a controlled way and focusing on breathing in that magical oxygen stuff can really make a difference.

Today I am grateful that I can take my health into my own hands.

Are you sceptical or in agreement?

  1. I love this! I completely agree that some yoga, mindfulness, and physical activity can cure our pains without pills. I have scoliosis, and I had back surgery. I practice yoga A LOT because of it, and I started weightlifting three years ago. Miraculously, all the pain went away after that. My back really bugs me when I’m sitting all day at work, and I realize I didn’t walk around or I didn’t go to the gym. And then when I go to the gym later, all the pain disappears. My body and my mind feel good. I think focusing on our oxygen like you said, and balancing out where we place pressure on our bodies (i.e. using our hands to hold us up in a pose, when we can just rely on our feet by evenly distributing the weight) really helps mentally and physically. It’s our “me” time! 🙂

    1. Same for me! I broke my back last year and the less active I am the more niggles of pain I get.
      This redistributing energy stuff has really worked for me and I try to practice everyday to keep it all in balance.
      It’s nice to know there are people out there with the same beliefs towards healing!
      Thanks for sharing x
