Alternate Nostril Breathing For Migraines
As migraine warrior, I’ve found this to be helpful. Always consult your doctor to get pro advice!
Right hand with index & middle finger folded in. Left hand with index finger & thumb pressing.
1
Close off right nostril with thumb, exhale slowly through left nostril.
2
Close of left nostril with ring finger & slowly inhale slowly through the right nostril.
3
Repeat 5x. With each inhale, feel the air travel all the way up to the brain. Exhale release tension
4
Relax fingers. Focus on space between eyebrows. Take a deep breath in & out through both nostrils.
5
Change sides. Left hand framing nostrils. Exhale through the right & inhale through the left.
6
Repeat 5x. Release fingers. Focus on space between eyebrows. Inhale & exhale through both nostrils.

Interesting note: The right side 👃🏼 stimulates the left brain 🧠. And vice versa!
The right brain controls creativity, imagination & art. The left side, logic, maths & facts.
Try it out! For migrainuers, try on onset of migraine. Otherwise, it’s a great energising exercise!
