I only get migraines once in a blue moon. When I'm lucky I can go an entire year without getting one, so I was a little unsure of how I'd actually review the Thermal-Aid 100% Natural Headache Relief System. But, as if my brain knew that I had work to do, a migraine kicked into high gear yesterday, and I was down for the count. I couldn't have been more happy to have the Headache Relief System in my "to review" box. When I realized that my blindness was being caused by the aura and not from just staring out the window too long, I immediately grabbed the relief system, popped a few pain killers, and went straight to bed.
"Thermal-Aid treats pain, muscle tension and light sensitivity simultaneously for fast, dependable, welcome relief in minutes. No pills. No side effects. Created by a Board-certified Neurologist, the Thermal-Aid Headache System is clinically proven to relieve tension and migraine headaches." ~ Thermal-Aid
The Thermal-Aid 100% Natural Headache Relief System includes Headache Relief Cream; a topical analgesic and a Cold Press Eye Pack. The Cold Press Eye Pack is designed to block out light. This is super handy, especially for those of us who suffer from photophobia during one of our migraine episodes. The cold pack is also designed to provide light pressure which eases forehead and temple tension. The Thermal-Aid Headache Relief System is also designed for those who get tension headaches.
Because the cold pack is made with specially engineered corn, not only is it a natural product, but it also retains cold much longer, and you could even throw it into the microwave if you were desiring heat. This process also eliminates mold, fungi and bad odors usually associated with natural heating/cooling products.
I found that with the Headache Relief System I could fall asleep faster to bypass the worst part of my migraine, and I stayed asleep longer. I think the coolness lasted at least an hour. The slight pressure it provided was definitely welcome, and the Eye Pack was so comfortable I could sleep on either of my sides without uncomfortable lumpiness happening. While the pack is a little heavier than I expected, the covering is super soft, and the corn never gets too cold no matter how long you've kept it in the freezer.
I woke up from my 3.5 hour "go the heck away migraine" nap feeling better than I ever have after sleeping one off. I had an event to attend in Maryland later that afternoon. I know I'm not the only one who doesn't want to do anything after a migraine, even if you're feeling better. But... this was doable and I didn't feel like death the entire time. I survived the hour long train ride in, the beer tastings, the loud music, and food.... all of which are things I typically stay away from until 24 hours later. I couldn't believe it. I will use this product EVERY time I have a migraine. And really, probably every time I get a headache. I had actually tried the cold pack out once for 10 seconds when my kids were giving me a pounding headache, and it relieved some of the pain within seconds. This is definitely a winning product! (I've also been a fan of Thermal-Aid since I was introduced to their animals.)
