First one is the one that's most popular with CH sufferers because of how well it works at aborting the attacks and the speed with which it does it. Pure oxygen (O2). Breathing O2 at 8-12 liters per minute through a NON-rebreather mask will not get into your breastmilk and will knock out an attack within 10-15 minutes often. Also, as Kathi said, she uses very hot showers. Many people get relief through the heat. If that doesn't work try the opposite. Many people like me get the same benefit from very cold temperatures. A fan or A/C is a good method for that as is holding a bag of ice.
