Hi, fellow sufferers. I've just found this site. I'm in the middle of a bout of clusters. I've got a remedy for aborting my attacks, that's right, abort not CURE, that may help some of you and hopefully (I wish) all of you. I've suffered cluster's 23 years now and have never taken drugs to control it. Always used alternative's like acupuncture etc. Until 4 years ago when I discovered a way of aborting my attacks, hopefully some of you will try it. This remedy works for me during attacks and can abort an attack before its onset.
OK HERE IT IS..and good luck. Find the main water supply in your house normally the kitchen. Don't use stored tank water, usually bathrooms etc. Run the cold water and bend over the sink, cup your hand and fill with water and ingest directly up through your nose (my clusters are on the left so I concentrate on the left nostril). The idea is to cool the area at the very back of the nasal track. You will need to practice this, you need to hold the water there for a second or too and then repeat again & again, I sometimes obtain relieve almost immediately but on average it can take 2 to 5 minutes. Water temperature of around 10 degrees C works for me. A good guide to temperature is that your hand and fingers should start to feel cold within a minute. If it's going to work for you, you will start to feel a cooling numbing sensation and soon after,hopefully, your cluster attack will subside. I won't go into the mechanics of it, I just want you to try it and see if it works for you. If it works for some of you we can discuss it more. Now the KILL. I read sometime ago that ingesting freezing water through the nose can cause death... DON'T BE TEMPTED. Post any further questions you might have to the forum and I'll do my best to answer them. P.S. I had 5 attacks last night and managed to abort every one of them within 5 minutes. Good luck…. regards Ivor.
