Allay to the Rescue of Our Migraines
My husband and I both suffer from migraines. Albeit he has a harder time than I do. We were both grateful to receive an Allay Lamp, to try. I am here to tell you that we’ve almost come to blows over who gets to use it! What is Allay? Well, I’m glad that you asked. Ally is a band of light, and the company makes Allay lamps and desk lights that project a band of Allay light that can help prevent and ease migraine headaches. When turned on the lamp helps to soothe both your eyes and your brain. Its soft green glow doesn’t even bother my sensitive eyes. This Allay band of light (pantented) was discovered by a Harvard Medical School neuroscientist.
Most people know by now, that blue light can cause all kinds of issues. Sitting in from of a computer screen all day (or on tablets and phones), can, in layman’s terms…mess with our brains. Often it interferes with the ability fall asleep, and in some cases can cause or increases the number and intensity of migraine headaches.
My husband and I are both on our computers for hours each day. He logs in about 10 – 12 hours, while I might be online for 16 hours or more. It’s just the nature of the beast. We have to be online in front of our computers for work.
He has always suffered from migraines, but for me, this has been something that started creeping up on me when I started working full time. As I’m self-employed, every hour makes a huge difference to my bank account! So, even though I’ve been miserable at times, I just keep plugging away. Thankfully with the Allay Lamp, my migraines are becoming fewer and farther between. This has been a true blessing. I can work longer with less pain AND I have cut back on my migraine prescription medication.
“There are also very specific benefits for moms! From the “up and down every hour” sleep patterns of newborns looking for their next meal to the sense of being overwhelmed and stressed that comes with parenting any age child, insomnia is a problem for moms and dads. However, by using the Allay Lamp in all bedrooms, expecting + new mothers and families can have a low stress, minimal sensory disruptive environment that will help every member of the family to fall asleep and stay that way. In addition, expectant and nursing moms will like the fact that the Allay Lamp offers non medicated relief from headache and migraine pain.”
How Does it Work?
“It’s about precision
As you go about your life, the light you see generates electrical signals in your eyes. These signals cause a reaction in the brain, and it can be quite intense even in everyday light.
While everyone squints in the bright sun, some people – often those with migraines, cluster headaches, brain trauma or dry eyes – are extremely sensitive to even small amounts of light.
They end up spending much of their lives isolated in a dark room or wearing sunglasses to try to keep their pain from getting even worse.
Fortunately, Prof. Rami Burstein has discovered a precise narrow band of natural light that lets you see and function without the discomfort of everyday light: the Allay band of light.”
