Oh the agony of migraines. If you’re a migraine sufferer, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Everyone’s migraines are a little different, but they are all agonizingly miserable for sure. Mine start in the back of the neck, kind of like a little neck ache. It isn’t long before they climb up the back of my head and around to the front. My ears burn (kind of like the pain of an earache), my sense of smell is so strong that things like an air freshener in another room can make me feel sick, my vision gets fuzzy and I feel nauseous. Oh yeah, I have some real doozies. As you can imagine, when a migraine comes on, I’m willing to try just about anything for relief. When I found HotColdComfort, I was instantly intrigued. Could something like this really bring relief for my miserable migraines? Could Heat Therapy Rice Bags really do the trick? Well, unfortunately I had an opportunity to try out some of their products yesterday and here’s what I found out…a cold eyemask on my eyes, a cold wrap around my neck and heat on my feet are AMAZING when you’re suffering from a migraine! I was a little skeptical at first and I don’t mean to say that they made my migraine go away, but man did they help in a HUGE way. Here is the set I’m talking about that the super sweet Sally sent for me to try out. It’s their Natural Migraine Relief with Hot Cold Packs…
And here’s some interesting info about this set, taken directly from their website… Cold reduces excess blood flow and inflammation. Our migraine headache relief set works by freezing the neck wrap and eye pillow and using them cold from the freezer around the base of the neck and eye or forehead area. Headache’s pounding sensation is often caused by excess bloodflow and we target the areas where blood flows and creates the pounding sensation. Meanwhile, heat the footwarmers in the microwave and place feet right on top. You can also slip them inside a pair of socks or slippers. The heat from the footwamers draws the excess blood flow away from the pounding head and toward the feet. We fill our Headache Relief Set with Heat Packs and Cold Packs with flaxseed and rice which are excellent conductors of heat and cold. Measurements are Neck Wrap 18″ x 5″, Contoured Eye Pillow 8″ x 4″, Footwamers 9″ x 3.5″. I’m tellin’ ya, it was such a great relief to have this set yesterday. I can’t even tell you. My husband and I had a little joke going too about that I looked fabulous as I lay there suffering because the set matches our black and white bedding perfectly. LOL Really though, I was very impressed by the performance of this set and highly recommend it to anyone who suffers from migraines or even just bad headaches. I also couldn’t help but think of how cozy the footwarmers would be in the winter, since I always seem to have cold feet and if my feet are cold, my whole body is. So, whether for yourself or someone you know, this set has many possibilities for great comfort. There are so many other types of hot/cold wraps, pillows, etc. that they offer like these… This is a cool headband style that works for headaches, sore jaws, earaches, etc.
Check out these microwavable slippers!
This is a lumbar belt. Kind of cool because you could wear it while you’re doing things instead of having to sit while you are cooling/heating your lower back.
This wrap would be great for people with carpal tunnel.
Those are just a few of the many things they offer. They also offer sets for pregnancy, work stress, etc. Very cool! They also have an Etsy shop along with their website that you can go to. You should stop by their Facebook page and show them some love too! If you have people on your Christmas list that seem to be impossible to buy for, this may just be the perfect type of gift for them! In fact, Sally is offering my readers a 10% off coupon when you use coupon code: september2012 and it is good until the end of September! The code is only good at www.hotcoldcomfort.com, so be sure to shop at the website as opposed to their Etsy page. Why not get some Christmas shopping done early?! I also think that their Bulk Wholesale Heat Pads would make great bridesmaid gifts. So fun! Be sure to check out all of the great stuff they have to offer. I’m so thankful to have found them and found some relief for my migraines and if you have aches and pains that could use hot or cold comfort, I know you’ll love them too!
