Migraine Management Tips From Daddie

Image
Last week, I wrote about the migraine attack I had & immediately after reading it, my father sent me a useful email with tips on how to manage migraines. It's unorthodox so be ready for some simple but surprising reactions to these...

During Migraine Pain:
To relieve the pain, use right finger to block right nostril and breathe normally through left nose until clear. Search for a pressure point by pressing around the line separating the upper and lower arm near to the elbow. Either arm will do. It hurts the most when pressed. Massage/press it until pain subsides.
Migraine Prevention:
Holding a Qi Gong Ma Pu stance for at least 30mins every day. Also good for every day health/exercise substitute.Stay away from direct aircon or fan blowing on your body especially the head.
The most common cause of migraine is direct blow of aircon, fan or window breeze during sleep.  Thanks, dad!
Now you've helped me as well as the world find relief from migraines!

Do try these out & see i…

Suddenly, it came. Without warning.
I wasn't aware of it at first but soon I started to feel nauseated & dizzy.
The pain was concentrated abo…

Here it is! What you've all been waiting for!
My long delayed sharing of the video my students and I made for the Pertandingan Mencipta Video Merdeka 2011 as promised here.
It was already ready to share last week & I wanted to put it on YouTube but I did not have an Internet connection stable enough or fast enough to upload a 250MB file onto the Internet without disconnecting or taking FOREVER!
So last night, I stayed over in a friend's house in Song & left the computer uploading overnight to bring the production right to your computer screen.

The concept of this video is simplicity at the far end of complexity.
The purpose of the video is to give viewers a short & sweet glimpse of what life is like for a majority of young people in the interiors of Sarawak who live mostly from hand to mouth.

Basically, the story is centred around a boy called Moses. He is a mommy's boy and what many would call a good boy. His father works far away so he is forced at a young ag…
