    I would say that this is precisely why method (epistemology) is more important than content (knowledge).

    ===============================

    You need to find the right method to figure out your deficiencies.

    Nathan,
    I was thinking about ordering the Wm Hof method - any insights?

    Hi Kvond,
    I got a lot out of Wim's course. If you're on the fence look at some youtubes on how to do the basic breathing, try it daily for a week or so and if you want to go deeper get the course. Let me know how it goes!

    Nathan,
    Thanks a lot! I did spring for the course, and have done a full week of breathing. Today I drove to the ocean and swam in the cold. I've at least been consistent, and when I wake with a headache, it does seem to help. Plus, it seems a way to ease into Jack's CT. At the ocean, once I finally got in, I really liked swimming in the cold, til my poor toned veins gave out and I got dizzy :) But I've been reading more studies on migraines and cold, and there seems to be an argument for exposure to cold and ice for more than simply an attempt aborting or ameliorating one. Also, I'm noticing that I'm just paying better attention to my body and triggers than simply bracing myself for the next migraine episode.

    Wonderful and good for you! Keep it up and continue your cold exposure. And yes, mindfulness is very powerful for healing. We have the power to direct our energy to where we need it with our focus and attention. If you are not able to make it to the ocean, ice packs on your carotid arteries can help as well and if you can ground while doing it all the better.

    Never thought of icepacks to the carotid - but that makes a lot of sense. I'm going to give it a try.
