As a certified medical acupuncturist, I recommend acupressure to treat nausea and motion sensitivity. Blisslets not only deliver the appropriate amount of pressure to the P6 acupressure point, but they are also discrete and stylish. So it’s the perfect gift for someone who will be doing a lot of travel this holiday season.
Wearable devices are a vastly underutilized tool for migraine treatment. Cefaly is an over the counter FDA cleared device that works to both prevent and treat migraine headaches. Worn on the forehead for 20 minutes a day for prevention and/or 60 minutes as needed for acute pain relief, it is safe, effective, and easy to use. Cefaly is an ideal gift for a friend or family member who doesn’t tolerate the usual migraine medications, is drug-averse, or pregnant.
Amrita Aromatherapy Essential Oils
Essential oils have a long history of use in pain and headache treatment and can be used in an aromatherapy format (like in a diffuser) or applied topically to the skin. Beneficial oils for headache are derived from plant sources and include lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, chamomile, and rosemary. Ideal for that person who loves fragrances but may be triggered by artificial scents and perfumes.
Please note that if using essential oils topically, be sure to dilute the oil by at least 50-75% to avoid skin irritation. You can mix the oil with other carrier oils or unscented lotion.
Supplements, including vitamins, can be powerful tools in a migraine treatment or prevention plan. Beneficial vitamins include magnesium, riboflavin (vitamin B2), coenzyme Q10, feverfew, vitamin D, melatonin, and vitamin E. However, not all supplements are created equal, as there are many differences in quality among available brands. You can find my recommendations for medical-grade supplements via Fullscript,, a virtual supplement dispensary. Perfect for anyone who wants natural preventative therapy.
*If you are pregnant or have other medical conditions, please check with your physician before starting any supplements.
Iris Eye Protection Software
For those who are light sensitive when on digital screens, there is a screen filter app called “Iris” which blocks out the flicker rate of the screen and can also block out blue light emitted by screens. The app has multiple settings which may be tried. You can download the app to your device or computer by clicking the link. A very thoughtful gift for those who spend a little too much time on the computer.
