How old are you veera? Did something happen that originally triggered these migraines off? How long do they last? 

Does simran help?

 

You don't have to answer if you don't want btw.

Veer ji i have hit 30 a few months ago.  

 

What triggered them off the migraine problem was after having a cheese baked pasta dish. After eating it i remember finishing off the 2nd half of Sukhmani Sahib via samsung tablet. Then as soon as i had finished i had nasty pain in my right eye and a like a water tap i started to throw up and it wouldn't stop at all and it went on for hours. So i went to A&E and they gave me a injection to stop it along with a drip and blood tests. So i spent the night there in hospital. And was discharged in the morning and given anti sickness pills.

 

So thats where all of my problems started with acid reflux build up and frequent headaches.

 

When the migraine does happen it doesn't stop until i take codeine based painkillers with antisickness &antisickness and sumatriptan. I usually wait a hour or 2 for the codeine to help it then triptan.

 

Simran no offence hasn't helped i know it should it help it but the medication numbs it down the the pain.

Here's another acupressure technique that has helped me big time when I've ever had migraines:

 

When you next have one, use the thumb and forefinger (the finger next to your thumb) of your right hand and place them slap bang in the middle of each eyebrow.

Then start applying pressure whilst slowly making tiny circles on the pressure point. Don't be afraid to really start applying hard pressure (as much as your body allows) do this for about 30 seconds/1 minute continuously. It might feel uncomfortable to start with but keep at it. Keep that pressure on the pressure point consistently without removing your finger and thumb. After the time is passed -  remove your digits. You should feel immediate relief. 

Try it and let us know how it works.

People do use cannabinoids for migraines and it seems to work. But veer ji, you'll have to go through all the rigmarole of getting hold of the right type of stuff for this, which is another big problem. So try the accupressure instead.

With Waheguru's kirpa, you should hopefully be able to get off the meds soon.

Veer ji thanks i will try this and hopefully it help the migraine headaches. I always do ardas everyday for these migraine headaches to stop as their annoying so i am hoping guru sahib ji will do kirpa one day for it.

 

The cannabis oil stuff sounds addicative like a drug so thats something i wouldn't want to get into as i already use codeine in co codomal.

 

But this method veer ji sounds a lot easier compared to taking cbd oil.

 

Like i know that for toothache i have used salt water and garlic cloves to numb it down but for headaches migraines its hard to work out natural remedies for it but i will try the way you have described it veer ji and thanks for writting it.

Veera, CBD oil isn't remotely addictive, especially compared to codeine (which is an opiate). It doesn't intoxicate you either. It's THC and some other cannabinoids that do that.

If you don't get joy off the acupressure/massage techniques don't be afraid to try cbd oil.

Veer ji you are right opiates are addicative as they fo have side effects for long term.

 

I saw on google that cbd oil is also good for toothaches so it does sound like a good alternative compared to using opiates.

 

I am going to start looking at where and how to buy the product like shops like Holland And Barrett & other health shops etc.

I don't know what to make of this???

Can cannabinoids protect against liver diseases?

Heavy alcohol drinkers who also smoke cannabis 'may slash their odds of getting killer liver diseases such as cirrhosis by up to 55%'

  • Researchers analysed data on almost 320,000 heavy drinkers in the study
  • Those who smoked cannabis had a 45% lower chance of fatty liver disease
  • It's unclear why the drug has this effect, but it is known to be anti-inflammatory

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-7635429/Binge-drinkers-smoke-cannabis-protected-liver-diseases.html 

 

Regardless of this, I think there's so much anecdotal and scientific information on the potential, medical usefulness of cannabinoids now, the government should sponsor serious research into it.

Budding economy: How indigenous peoples are cashing in on Canada’s cannabis boom

 

 

Canada’s indigenous peoples are pioneering the billion-dollar bonanza that is the country’s growing cannabis market.

The biggest hub is the tiny Mohawk territory of Tyendinaga, about two hours east of Toronto.

On a speck of land three miles wide and 12 miles deep, there are more than 60 cannabis dispensaries selling all manner of products – from pot to THC sweets.

That's really good to hear that at least some indigenous people kept their sovereignty and told the gorayaan de maharani to eff off. lol

 

And I'm going to say, stuff like the above is what makes some people think that Juts in Panjab are a retarded race. They should be all over this. But they'll be crying about the lack of 'gorment' support like children no doubt.

The NHS has negotiated a special price for the £850-a-bottle medication 

 

Waheguru!!!!!

 

Here's what's available so far (3):

 

The Government legalised cannabis-based medicines in the UK in November 2018.

The law change was made after a high pressure public campaign by families of children with severe forms of epilepsy, who said their youngsters could benefit from the drugs.

However, patients have found it hard to access drugs since then because medications must also be licensed and funded before an NHS patient can get them.

Any licensed drug can be prescribed by a private doctor, but patients have to pay for them themselves.

Only three cannabis-based medicines currently have NHS funding.

Nabilone – Nabilone is a drug taken orally to reduce sickness in patients having chemotherapy for cancer. It was approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in August.

Sativex – Sativex is a nasal spray cannabis-based drug which is used to reduce spasticity (muscle stiffness) in some patients with multiple sclerosis. NICE approved Sativex in November.

Epidyolex with clobazam – Epidyolex is an oral solution used to reduce the frequency of seizures in children with Dravet syndrome and Lennox Gastaut syndrome, severe forms of epilepsy. Clobazam is an already approved anti-epileptic drug which does not contain cannabis.

Make of it what you will. Not very solid in my opinion, but interesting nonetheless:
