Migrene og parfyme

Frisk luft er viktig også for folk som lider av migrene.

Jeg er interessert i duft av mange grunner, men ikke den produsentene ønsker. Noen mennesker jeg kjenner har migrene, jeg har astma, og sammentatt er det en god grunn å være interessert i duften. Dette er den store årsaken til hvorfor du IKKE skal bruke det.

Det lukter så fint, men det kan gjøre din egen eller andres hode vondt og så dårlig.

Migrene kan være forårsaket av forandringer i hjernestammen og dets samspill med trigeminal nerve, en stor smertesti. Ubalanser i hjernens kjemikalier, blant annet serotonin – som bidrar til å regulere smerter i nervesystemet – kan også være involvert.

Serotoninnivået blir lavere under migreneanfall. Dette kan utløse trigeminal system for å frigjøre stoffer som kalles neuropeptides, som reiser til hjernens ytre dekker (hjernehinnene). Resultatet er hodepinesmerte.

I tillegg til å forårsake pusteproblemer for de som har astma og andre lungesykdommer, fører duft også til migrene.

“Oftestbegynner migrene smerte om morgenen på den ene siden av hodet. En migrene kan vare i flere timer eller opptil tre dager. Smerten varierer fra middels til ødeleggende, og kan være ledsaget av kvalme, oppkast eller diaré. Det medfører en økt følsomhet for lys, lyd, brå bevegelser og selv lukter -. inkludert parfyme – kan forsterke problemet, sende en migrene lidende til et mørkt, stille rom til migrene passerer.”

Da du bruker parfyme da tar du ikke kun en beslutning for deg, men også for alle rundt deg. Parfyme sprer seg i luften til alle som skal puste. Din parfyme kan gjøre andre sjuke.

Migraine and fragrance

Fresh air is important also for People suffering from migraine.

I am interested in fragrance for many reasons, but not the one the fragrance makers hope for. Some People I know have migraine, Myself I have asthma, and together it is a great cause to be interested in fragrance. This is the big interest in why you should NOT wear it.

It smells so nice, but it can make Yours or others head hurt so badly.

Migraines may be caused by changes in the brainstem and its interactions with the trigeminal nerve, a major pain pathway. Imbalances in brain chemicals, including serotonin — which helps regulate pain in your nervous system — also may be involved.

Serotonin levels drop during migraine attacks. This may trigger your trigeminal system to release substances called neuropeptides, which travel to your brain’s outer covering (meninges). The result is headache pain.

In addition to causing breathing problems for those having asthma and other lung diseases, fragrance also causes migraine.

“Most often migraine pain begins in the morning on one side of the head. A migraine can last for several hours or up to three days. Pain varies from medium to debilitating, and can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, thus the “sick headache” label. An increased sensitivity to light, sound, sudden movements and even smells — including perfume — can intensify the problem, sending a migraine sufferer to a dark, quiet room until the migraine passes.”

When you use fragrance when you take a decision not only for you but also for everyone around you. Fragrance spreads in the air for all to breathe. Your fragrance can make others sick.

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
