    Simple Technique to Abort Headaches Right at Onset!

    For those interested, few research papers that discuss how pressure under axilla (armpit) changes breath flow. https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/f47c/f0c9f3820eef41093d9815b9515cdb884eef.pdf https://www.physiology.org/doi/abs/10.1152/jappl.1970.28.2.162 https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/971d/f7658038c42ad218da06b9887217385e4a23.pdf A more informal description of the technique - https://soranews24.com/2017/11/13/stuffy-nose-ruining-your-day-this-handy-japanese-lifehack-will-clear-your-sinuses-instantly/ I would say easier done than said in this case. Your can try it right away. Your nostril may not be blocked/runny right now, but still, on account of the normal nasal cycle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nasal_cycle), one of the nostril will be "dominant". You can apply pressure under that armpit and notice a reversal in dominance. It happens in under a minute. The best way would be to lie down on sideways if you can, say at home. That way you don't need to apply pressure the armpit. I suggested this alternate method for situations where you cannot. There are no hard and fast rules, the point is to pay attention to the affected nostril, ensure that it stays dominant, flow of breath isn't impaired. As soon as you sense it getting blocked/runny, do it again. Personally, I do it for about a minute every 5-10 minutes, till I am certain that the ache has fully subsided, which takes anywhere from 40-50 minutes.

    @Freud Nope. The masterbation project doesn't seem to be going too well for you, so I'll pass. You can now stop cluttering this thread with more of your "strong suggestions" as they are irrelevant. You can always start a new thread to describe your experiences with other practices.

    @MoxieGirl You are welcome to discuss/recommend your "serious" kinky practice in a separate thread. Leave this thread for rest of the folks who would rather try a simple technique that isn't weird/kinky, doesn't involve needles/pain and is easy to understand and try for anyone. I believe this forum is well-moderated, so leave it the mods to decide what is "misleading" and what isn't.

    @Freud Runny nose and and pain in the eye follows, that is once you are in a full-blown attack. If you notice carefully right at the onset, it begins with noticeable blockage in the affected nostril and then starts to get worse from there on. If you make sure that the nostril on the affected side stays open through this technique, then you won't get to the stage where you experience runny nose and pain in the eye.

    @dmlonghorn Thanks for sharing your experience. I tried editing the title, but it's not possible at my end. It would certainly be great if the mods can do it. And we can actually focus on the technique rather than getting lost in semantics. The armpit technique supplements lying down, and speeds up the opening of the nostril. For me, lying down sideways by itself opens up the nostril. The armpit technique can be used in conjunction if you have a very rapid onset, or if you are not in a position to lie down. The revelation came about to me while researching ancient Indian breathing techniques called Pranayama, after I had exhausted all other treatments. While it has been only a month since I started regular practice and I certainly can't claim I am permanent cured, the philosophy behind Pranayama linking the effects of breathing patterns on brain function are intriguing to say the least. For the time, I am relieved to merely arrest the headaches right at the onset with such a simple technique. I am confident that I am not unique in being the only person who could be benefited by this technique. And that many others could benefit from it. So yes, please try it out and do share your experience. Remember to perform it right at the very first signs of an impending ache.

    I agree. I didn't want to mislead anyone by suggesting it's a permanent cure, antidote would be moreappropriate. However, I thought it might lead to more people checking it out and be benefited. I understand any skepticism as well, but hey, as a sufferer, I think you would appreciate if this can merely prevent the aches every time they are about to occur, if not cure them permanently. Try it. After all, you have nothing to lose, except the headaches! Apparently, the blocked nostril is a necessary condition for the headache. Ensuring that it stays open somehow 'breaks the circuit' and prevents the headache from kicking in.

  9. Edit: 1. The title of this thread has been edited. The thread contains complaints that the previous title was misleading, for containing the word "cure", these do not include any criticism of the method itself. 2. The method described stops headaches almost instantly when performed at the onset and has always worked for me without exceptions. 3. Wherever I have mentioned "blocked" nostril, I intend to imply any situation where breathing is impaired. This includes runny nostril as well. The technique is equally applicable. 4. Please restrict your replies to doubts about the method, your experience with it, or research/ your experiences pertaining to correlations between breath and CHs. Headache is always accompanied by blocked nostril, the one on the same side as the hemisphere that is aching. The key is to merely keep that nostril flowing. And that would avert the headache. Here's how to do that. The moment you sense an upcoming headache, lie, or keep your head down on the side opposite to the one that's aching. Close the opposite nostril with your finger. And apply pressure under the opposite armpit with the fist of your other hand. That is, if you experience the aches in your right hemisphere, lie or keep your head down with the left side facing down towards the bed/table, close your left nostril, and apply pressure under your left armpit. These steps will prevent your right nostril from getting blocked. And arrest the headache immediately. The key is to do the steps the very moment you sense it coming. And keep at it for few minutes, not letting the nostril get blocked. Full blown attack will certainly be averted. It won't be as effective once you're already into a full blown attack and your nostril is already completely blocked. Just practice the steps once, get familiar with altering the flow of breath through the nostrils, so that you are ready to do it the next time you sense an upcoming headache. Have been a sufferer since 2014. Tried this in around last 10 episodes, with 100% success. All the best! Edit: I know it sounds too simple to be effective, but just give it a shot! Edit: You don't need to do all the three steps to reverse the flow of breath. Say if you are traveling, merely applying pressure under the opposite armpit will do the trick.
