Ergonomic Beads Eye Pillow for Migraine Relief
After a long day of work and sitting in traffic for hours all you want to do is get home and rest the pounding headache that all the daily hassles triggered. For those who suffer from migraine like me, you know where I’m coming from. So you get home, turn off the lights, cancel all noise possible, you take some migraine headache pills and you get into bed. There is one thing missing though. The one thing that will give you the cherry on top to get rid of that horrible episode and help you get back on your feet: The IMAK Ergonomic Beads Eye Pillow by Brownmed.
Using cold therapy to treat migraine headaches go back as early as 1849 and nowadays it is still one of the main ways to treat them. Even when the person is suffering from migraines with aura, cold therapy is usually the most common self-administered. According to Dr. Keri Peterson in NY, “Ice helps for multiple reasons — it could be either a vascular contribution, a neurologic contribution, or endocrine.”
The circulatory system benefits from cold therapy. When applied to, the cold constricts the blood vessels allowing the blood flow to decrease and therefore it lessens the pain you feel in any area. Cold packs also reduce swelling if present.
This wonderful mask not only provides that comfort and pain relief from cold therapy, but it also completely shuts out all the light. It is made of cotton which is fully breathable and very comfortable on the skin. The ergoBeads provide a gentle massage around the eyes. If you suffer from migraine, you know how bad pain can get around the eyes, and this mask does miracles to end that suffering. If you have a headache “on the go” this mask is also great because even when it is not chilled, it can still provide you a cooling (not cold) sensation so you can apply it anywhere.
