Do you suffer headaches, migraines? Feeling stressed, anxious, or just worn down by modern life? I don’t know about you, but I prefer not to take medication for such situations. I seek something less invasive to put me back in a relaxed and creative state.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been wearing a device called a Hema-Tie around my forehead. It’s a band of braid with hematite beads attached that can be placed on appropriate acupressure points. I know: I hadn’t heard of this therapy either. But I was introduced to the concept by a new neighbour who’s rapidly become a friend.
Vince has studied the theory behind acupressure and understands the principles well. He showed me one of his bands and explained how it works, what it does. It was a no-brainer to try one out.
During my 10 years with ME/CFS I was more or less constantly in a state of anxiety, probably due to the effect the condition has on the hippocampus, which is involved in regulating the stress system. Although I recovered from the condition a short time after I retired, I discovered that I suffered a sort of hangover in the form of an increase in background anxiety. Prior to ME/CFS, I’d always been pretty relaxed. In fact, my work colleagues used to say if I was any more laid back I’d fall over!
I decided to try the Hema-Ties band to see whether it would have any effect on my anxiety levels and help reduce the odd bouts of stress-related fatigue that were another occasional echo of the ME/CFS.
Not only did it work a treat on these, it left me both relaxed and creatively stimulated. A real and positive affect on my wellbeing. It’s been a genuine success for me.
Considering the low cost and ease of use, I’d say this is a superb way of dealing with a number of issues. The Endocrine System is also boosted while wearing the device, helping to balance the body’s natural chemistry. Certainly, I feel generally better both during and after wearing it. Why not give it a go? You never know, in spite of the scepticism some of you will no doubt harbour, it may well turn out to be the solution you never thought you’d find.
