Do you suffer from Migraines or Headaches? Reiki Energy Healing can help

Leave a comment

If you suffer from migraine then you will know what I mean when you get those killer headaches, affecting one half of your head, pulsating in nature and lasting from 2 to 72 hours.  What happens next is that you may be bed ridden and your eyes will become sensitive to light.

Further, you will likely be also experiencing the following:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light, sound or smell
  • Physical activity like getting up and walking around will sometimes worsen the symptoms.

Did you know that up to one third of people with migraine headaches perceive an aura: a transient visual, sensory, language, or motor disturbance which signals that the headache will soon occur?  Occasionally an aura can occur with little or no headache following it.  Symptoms can be visual, sensory or motor in nature and many people experience more than one.

Some factors contributing to the cause of Migraines (mixture of environment & genetic factors):

  • Two-thirds of cases run in the family
  • Changing hormone levels
  • Migraines can affect more boys than girls before puberty
  • Occurs two to three times more in women than men
  • environmental, stress of either a physical or emotional nature,
  • nutritional deficiencies,
  • allergic reactions,
  • bright lights,
  • loud noises, and
  • certain odors or perfumes,
  • changes in sleeping patterns,
  • smoking or smoke exposure,
  • skipping meals,
  • alcohol,
  • menstrual cycle fluctuations,
  • birth control pills,
  • hormone fluctuations during the menopause,
  • foods containing tyramine (red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken livers, figs, and some beans),
  • monosodium glutamate (MSG) or nitrates (like bacon, hot dogs, and salami).

Interestingly, the risk of migraines usually decreases during pregnancy.

Some people who suffer from migraines also react to salt and eliminating salt can be helpful for some of these people. Lactose-intolerant individuals may benefit from avoiding milk and ice cream. Tryptophan, an amino acid found in protein-rich foods, is converted to serotonin, a substance that might worsen some migraines. As a result, low-protein diets have been used with some success to reduce migraine attacks.
Signs of Energy Imbalance
If you body is experiencing any sort of energy imbalance, symptoms and disease will be manifest in the body to some degree. Your physical body Energy may be in disharmony for weeks, months or years before any physical manifestations of symptoms arise.
If you are having a difficult time preventing migraines from happening and you have not identified a physical cause that can be corrected, you might want to consider that your migraines are originating from an energy imbalance within you. If you are closed off from your intuition or empathic, energy healing gifts, or if you are running too much energy for your body to absorb, your body pays the toll.
Reiki Energy healing can help promote relaxation by removing energy blockages in different areas of your chakras.
The holistic perspective sees health as a dynamic state of balance with considerable resilience in the overall system. A healthy person can withstand a certain amount of stress and bounce back. This is because the human body’s ability to heal includes various self-regulating mechanisms that maintain overall balance, which is known as homeostasis.However, after experiencing sudden, intense stress or moderate stress that is constant over a period of time, the body’s ability to regulate itself becomes compromised and health declines, slowly or not so slowly. Stress causes the body to lose its ability to rebalance, to restore homeostasis.Unless they are addressed, the stresses of everyday life – environmental, emotional, physical, financial, social etc. – can combine with an individual’s genetic predispositions and result in declining health and wellbeing.

At the simplest, most obvious level, Reiki treatment helps lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only does the person move toward his or her own unique balance in body, mind and spirit, but also, depending on the level of physical health when Reiki begins, the body’s own healing mechanisms often begin functioning more effectively.

Try Reiki today, a holistic way of bringing balance to your life without medication.
