Cluster headaches are one of the most painful conditions that a person can experience. They are often described as feeling like a hot poker being jabbed into your eye or head. Cluster headaches typically come in “clusters”, meaning that you have several headaches within a short period of time (days or weeks), followed by a headache-free period.
Cluster headaches may be triggered by alcohol intake, exertion, nitrate containing foods, or environmental factors such as smoke and altitude changes.
There is no cure for cluster headache, but there are treatments that can help to manage the pain and frequency of attacks. One treatment used by doctors is oxygen therapy.
Oxygen therapy usually involves breathing in pure oxygen through a mask or nasal cannula (a small tube that fits into your nostrils). The oxygen helps to ease the pain of cluster headaches by widening the blood vessels in your brain, which increases blood flow and decreases inflammation.
A review of studies on oxygen therapy for cluster headaches found that it can be an effective treatment for reducing the frequency and severity of attacks. In one study, nearly 80% of people who used oxygen therapy for cluster headaches had a reduction in the number of attacks they experienced.
If you are considering oxygen therapy for your cluster headache, it is important to work with a doctor who is experienced in oxygen therapy.
The link between hypoxia and cluster headache
Hypoxia is a condition where there is insufficient oxygen in the body tissues. This can be due to many reasons, including high altitude, lung disease, and heart disease. When someone has hypoxia, they may experience shortness of breath, fatigue, and headache or they may have no apparent symptoms.
There is some evidence to suggest that cluster headaches may be associated with hypoxia. A study of people with cluster headaches found that those who had low levels of oxygen in their blood were more likely to have more frequent and severe headaches.
Oxygen therapy by ELO Drinking Water
There is scientific evidence to suggest that oxygen therapy may be an effective treatment for reducing the frequency and severity of cluster headaches. Oxygen treatment is not restricted to oxygen delivery through the nostrils but we have something called oxygen-rich water that is effective in delivering oxygen to the body tissues by drinking.
We have received testimonies from users diagnosed with cluster headaches that ELO Drinking Water has helped to relieve their symptoms. We believe that ELO Drinking Water can be a form of oxygen therapy to help to relieve cluster headache pain because ELO Drinking Water has been scientifically proven to increase your blood and tissue oxygenation. Oxygen has been shown to give relief to sufferers of cluster headaches. In addition, the oxygen in ELO Drinking Water is easily absorbed by the body and quickly reaches the bloodstream, making it an ideal oxygen therapy.
Anecdotal Evidence: Battling Cluster Headache with ELO
"I am so thankful that I can progress in my career effectively and that I can engage with my family and socialise like normal."
Mr. Rashid suffered from cluster headache for 25 years. Cluster headaches are one of the most painful conditions that a person can experience. Although it is not life-threatening, cluster headache interferes with people’s lifestyle and work capacity.
Let us hear from Mr. Rashid on how oxygen helped him to reduce the frequency of his cluster headaches and relieve his symptoms.
