Headaches & Niacin
I used to get 2-3 migraines a week when I was a schoolteacher. Now that I am a spiritual teacher I get a severe headache 1-2 a month. It’s usually around the time of a full moon or a drastic weather change (I looked outside and noticed a full moon last night when this happened and the weather guy said tomorrow is going to be the coldest day of the entire winter season) those two in combination usually put me to bed with a severe headache by 7pm.
My goal is to be headache free or to find something that eliminates them before they take on a life of their own. I’ve tried and done virtually everything under the sun to no avail but…
Drum roll please…I think I may have found it!! I am still in the early stages of my study but yesterday a severe headache began to come on in the morning so I took 2 niacin. It seemed to hold it off and then after lunch it began to come back and I asked myself what should I take? I heard clearly inside my head: Take 2 more niacin. So I did. It went away but started to come back around dinner. And I heard it again…take 2 more niacin. But I forgot and relaxed in front of the TV until bedtime at 9pm.
My husband and I watched a healthy documentary on Netflix and the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous found that when addicts took 3000 mg of niacin their addictive desires were virtually eliminated and they were calmer.
I am not an addict but I do have headaches. I am not sure why Niacin popped into my mind to take for a headache but I do know that it helped, considerably and much better than anything else I’ve tried.
I shall keep you posted as to whether this was a fluke or if it really works. The next headache that comes on will be the true test. ♥
