She did not spend huge amounts of money but used a simple kitchen product to cure her migraines of long hours. She later wrote about her discovery on Facebook.
According to Daily Mail, Elizabeth Hayes who was suffering from a 12-hour migraine attack stumbled across a miracle cure for the illness in her kitchen. The cure was nothing but a simple food clip. She wrote on Facebook how the food clip relieved her from intolerable pain, "This chip clip saved my life tonight."
Elizabeth Hayes was in great pain and was desperate to find a cure. Her 12-hour migraine was becoming unbearable and her usual pain relief was not helping. "I had a migraine start almost twelve hours ago and about an hour ago it was at an unbearable limit. I had exhausted all of my drugs and tricks," wrote the woman on Facebook. Tired and exhausted by the throbbing headache and failed attempts to find relief, Hayes could not wait much longer. Her pain had become worse and she wanted something quick. She started googling for new products and found that a product called Aculief that looked like a food clip could help ease her pain by stimulating the LI4 pressure point on the hand.
The smart woman, who was inspired by the device online went into her kitchen and found a food clip. She used it between her thumb and forefinger and was surprised to see the results. "I glanced at the counter and saw this chip clip and decided it would do about the same thing," said Elizabeth on the Facebook post. She claimed that within minutes, she felt a change. Elizabeth clipped the food clip between her thumb and forefinger to see if it would work, and was glad she tried it. Hayes claims that her pain was reduced in 20 minutes. "Within one minute I had some relief, and within twenty my pain was reduced by half!!" she adds.
Elizabeth's post on Facebook quickly went viral which amazed several people was shared 292K times and attracted almost 170K comments. People applauded the woman for her trick and even said they would try it out. "Now you will see me walking around school with chip clips on my hands," said one user. While some said they were aware of the food clip trick, others suggested their tricks to deal with migraines.
According to MSKCC.org, the Acupressure technique of applying pressure between your thumb and forefinger is a great way to release pain and headaches.
Acupressure is a healing science based on the traditional Chinese medicine practice of acupuncture. The pressure points are known as acupoints and this technique can release muscle tension and promote blood circulation. Applying pressure between the thumb and index finger while moving your thumb in a circle is very effective to get rid of the pain. However, make sure that you are just being firm and not pressing too hard. Repeat it several times for 5 minutes to see results.
