Migraines Eliminated with this Surprising, Stylish Solution

Wear tinted glasses

Migraines got you down? A stylish choice might help to reduce the pain. A new study shows that wearing tinted glasses may actually lower your susceptibility to migraines. Seeing the world through rose-colored glasses might not just mean having an optimistic outlook, but a pain-free head as well!

Previous research has established that viewing busy patterns like stripes have been found to trigger migraines in some people. However, wearing tinted or color-filtered glasses helps to block out some of the visual stress that these patterns create. Therefore, researchers decided to test whether wearing colored glasses could affect a person’s headache risk.

The study found that wearing tinted lenses minimized visual discomfort better than normal glasses. Brain scans of the test subjects showed that those who wore the colored glasses had a higher activation in the visual cortex part of the brain, which helped to counteract the disturbing visual patterns they encountered. The therapeutic assistance these tinted glasses provide would likely help to stop migraines that would otherwise arise.

Looks like buying colored eyewear might become not just a fashionable trend, but a healthful trend, too!

  • “Would likely” help to stop migraine, not eliminate the neurological disorder rather. The headline is deceptive to be sure.

  • I’ve had bad migraines most of my life and tried many different tricks. Two of the best things: 1. stare at something dark, preferably black if you feel one coming on 2. if you have one MAXALT!! it’s the best. No other medication can compare.

    This morning at approximately 7:45am, Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a “smart” meter protest at the Wellington Energy yard at 38th and Portola in the unincorporated Opal Cliffs area of Santa Cruz County where PG&E contractors Wellington Energy are based. Wellington has been installing wireless “smart” meters throughout the county, violating ordinances in Capitola, Watsonville, and the County[1] that prohibit installations due to urgent concerns about health impacts from the meters’ wireless pulses, which have been measured at 100 times the strength of a cell phone[2], as well as privacy violations, ongoing accuracy issues and a series of fires and explosions caused by the new meters.

    Thousands of people have submitted written health complaints to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and in May the World Health Organization made an earth shattering declaration- that non-ionizing radiation from cell phones, cell towers, wifi, and “smart” meters, has been linked with a number of cancers. “Smart” meter radiation is now categorized as a class 2b carcinogen in the same cancer causing category as lead, DDT, and engine exhaust.[3] Nevertheless, PG&E continues to maintain that their meters are safe. The utility has been citing the World Health Organization’s past reassurances in their public statements. Now, they are no longer referring to the health issue at all, as no independent health organizations will back up their reassurances of safety. Instead, they recently mailed a 4 page glossy brochure to every household in Santa Cruz County, stating that “smart” meters will “cool the planet” despite PG&E’s own admission that the program has not reduced a single kwh of energy use despite more than 80% of the meters already being installed throughout California.[4]

    Wireless “smart” meters have been widely reported to cause headaches, dizziness, ringing in the ears- even memory loss and heart palpitations among susceptible individuals due to the constant bursts of microwave radiation- estimated at more than 22,000 per day. The movement against “smart” meters is the sharp end of a growing movement demanding health-based standards for wireless technology.

    Joshua Hart, Director of Stop Smart Meters! spoke of the shock and dismay from members of the public who witnessed the sheriff essentially enabling PG&E’s illegal behavior: “Imagine calling the sheriff to report a burglar in your house. The sheriff responds, but instead of arresting the burglar, he arrests the homeowner for getting in the burglar’s way, thus facilitating the theft in progress. That is exactly how Sheriff Wowak is behaving, allowing corporate criminals to violate the law with impunity.”

    Despite decisive action taken by the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors in passing ordinance 5084 on January 11 2011 prohibiting “smart” meter installation, and a letter from County Counsel Dana McRae indicating that county law enforcement would enforce the law, Sheriff Wowak appears to be giving PG&E a free pass to inflict their dangerous smart grid debacle onto an unwilling public.

    Three arrests of “smart” meter protesters have been made over the last month in Santa Cruz County, and protesters say they will continue protests and civil disobedience until the County Sheriff acts to prevent further installation.

    A number of conflicts were reported in neighbourhoods throughout Santa Cruz County on Thursday between Wellington installers and residents, and protests are expected to escalate as angry residents come home to find unwanted “smart” meters forced on their homes.

  • @MJUSTICE There is no evidence that radio waves cause migraines or any other disorder in anyone. Fear of the word “radiation” is no reason to start banning technology. Light is a form of radiation, are you going to remove your eyes so you can’t see it anymore?

    Heart Disease Satre, Cook and Graham (1998) observed significantly reduced heart rate variability (HRV) in volunteers sleeping in 60Hz fields. Extrinsic EMR signals interfere with hearts and cause heart disease and death. Bortkiewicz et al. (1995, 1996, 1997) and Szmigielski et al. (1998) found that RF exposure altered heart rate variability and blood pressure. Braune et al. (1998) showed that cell phone significantly increased blood pressure. Savitz et al. (1999) found a highly significant dose response relationship for mortality from Arrhythmia related heart disease and heart… attack (Acute Myocardial Infarction) for exposed electrical occupations and for individual occupations of electrician, lineman and power plant operator. This is a powerful set of epidemiological evidence showing that EMR across the spectrum increases the incidence and mortality from arrhythmia related heart disease and from heart attack.
