vestibular migraine attack / vestibular migraine episode / vestibular migraine natural treatment
This morning I got out of bed walked down the hallway and immediately felt like I was going to faint. It's a symptoms of vestibular migraines and I'm no stranger to it, but it always feels just as awful. I immediately sat on a chair in my family room and observed my surroundings: I could see and nothing was off kilter. Ok, I certainly have that going for me. I'm still grounded I just felt a wash of it pass through me...I talked to myself (I’m my mind) and say that I was ok and I will be continue to be ok.
I then grabbed a banana, glass of water and my Peppermint and Basil essential oil. I dabbed the Peppermint under my nose and massaged on my temples to bring me into the moment and wake me up. I put the Basil essential oil on the back of my neck, my temples and my stomach- basil is fantastic for migraines- I think of it as ‘unwinding’. ✨
I share this because it brings me to tears thinking how much those simple actions helped me this morning. This is why I share with others. Because in moments of feeling so completely powerless, I know I am most certainly not.
I know I have a support system to help me emotionally and physically and that is what it's all about. It’s about moments in darkness that I EMPOWERED and beyond GRATEFUL for the holistic support that I have.
What helps you most in the moment? I'd love to hear from you!
