  4. Dr. Emmett Miller's Simple but Powerful Way to Stop a Headache

    Dr. Emmett Miller's Simple but Powerful Way to Stop a Headache

    In my experience, there are few things quite as unpleasant and demoralizing as having a headache. Some people are positively plagued and hounded by them.

    Yet, most of the time the cause for that headache is simple tension and spasm in the muscles of the neck and scalp, and in the muscles circling the blood vessels in the head.

    Using the Power of Your Own Selective Awareness

     

    We hear words like guided imagery, mindfulness, and meditation all the time, but most of us think of them as something abstract, complex, or mysterious. Actually, the essence of all of these immersive techniques involves using a powerful tool available to all of us, though we may not be aware of it. That tool is our awareness.
