Actor Shahid Kapoor’s wife Mira Rajput is one of the helluva entertaining social media influencers. The star wife is often seen sharing some amazing videos and posts on her Instagram regarding her life. But the best thing about her photo-and-video sharing app is her life hacks that she keeps sharing with her 3 million fans. Speaking of which, Mira recently took to her gram and dropped an amazing tip on how to beat migraine. If you’re suffering from migraine, well, Mira’s simple hacks might turn into a saviour for many.
Sharing a post on her Instagram, Mira wrote, “I had a migraine a few days ago thanks to training mid-day. I’ve noticed when I train in the peak sun (regardless of season) I’m down with an annoying headache that sets in not a minute later after I’ve stepped out of the shower. Despite hydration and stable sugar levels, it’s annoying how it kicks my day out of whack. Maybe it’s the Pitta-aggravation that is to blame – Mid-day is the Pitta time of day and that probably aggravates the Pitta dosha in my body.”
Sharing the hacks on how to soothe the migraine, Rajput further adds, “One of the hacks I’ve figured is this Channa-Sek. It’s essentially Kaala Channa (Black chickpeas) toasted on the tava wrapped up in a cloth napkin. Nicely warm, once placed on the eyes gives enormous relief. The channa easily fall into the crevices of the eye region ( like those tiny marbles in eye pillows) and can be reused and re-toasted several times. Now I’m not sure whether it’s the gentle pressure on the eyes, or the warmth (strange because Pitta aggravation seeks cooling) or some funny kind of placebo effect that I’ve fallen prey to, but it works every time.”

“Have any of you tried this before? And more importantly do you know why it works?! I’ve researched the hell out of the internet and before I need it again due to a blue-light induced migraine, hoping to get some insight from you all,” she concluded.
