Ice pack behind the neck

    Hi all,

    This may a realllllly dumb question. Every time I get migraines I put an ice pack behind my head ( neck and shoulder area) which I did today for a slight headache before turning into a migraine. When I do this I fall asleep with it on for over an hour. Questions: is this ok to do (meaning sleeping with the ice and can this be an effective way of CT. If it is should this lead me to tolerate let say bath dunks, etc..

    Thank you

    I fall asleep every night with an ice pack. I have a cooler beside the bed. If I wake up in the night, I have a fresh cold one. It puts me right back to sleep. I've never slept better

    If you get no adverse effects it's fine. The body is supposed to cool down to sleep. I sleep much better if I do a cold tub near bedtime.

    Regarding migraines; I had a few of them each year before implementing the protocols, usually an aura with headache after. The last one I got was more than 1.5 year ago so it's possible to get rid of them. I still live around more nnEMF than I'd like, but I do always follow natural circadian rhythm, block/eliminate artificial blue light and drink spring water. Other hacks that seem to work regardless of what else I do are nicotine, aspirine, MB, kefir and curcumin/ginger. Other foods/supplements have not made much of a difference for me. Migraines usually started while I was doing computer work, and coffee seemed to be a trigger in some cases. So my point is keep at it and hopefully you'll find what works for you.

    Thank guys and gals.

    Thank God I didn't have a migraine yet ( they are getting better). So putting ice like I did this would be a CT protocol? This was my main concern. If it is I can do it every night with complete comfort. Also doing it this way would help me adjust to go further to tolerate full body immersion?
