Migraine is a debilitating and sometimes incapacitating condition, that causes a host of symptoms. Migraines often lead to severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head only.
This intense pain is usually accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. The pain caused by migraine attacks can last for hours to days and can be so severe that the pain is disabling.
In most cases, migraine attacks usually last from four to 72 hours if left untreated, and their frequency varies from person to person. They may be rare or strike several times a month.
Before or along the headache due to migraine, one might experience warning symptoms known as aura. These symptoms can include flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling sensations on one side of the face or in the arm or leg.
Many people almost immediately turn to painkillers to numb the pain caused by migraines, but these medications have been associated with numerous adverse effects.
Therefore, the best way to treat them is to try some self-help remedies and lifestyle changes. In most cases, it is caused by dehydration or a deficiency in some mineral in the body.
Our bodies are actually dehydrated much earlier before we actually feel thirsty. A dry mouth is a sign that the body fluids are depleted well below levels required for optimal functioning.
The urine is one of the best ways to check if you are dehydrated:
- The urine from a hydrated body is clear, colorless
- The urine from a somewhat dehydrated body is yellow
- The urine from a severely dehydrated body is orange or dark-colored urine
Mild dehydration leads to dry skin, fatigue, poor coordination, decreased urine output, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, blood pressure changes and impairment of judgment.
UCD (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration) causes symptoms like stress, allergies, headache, migraines, back pain, asthma, high blood pressure, and many degenerative health issues.
Fortunately, there is a natural way to treat migraines without using painkillers, by addressing dehydration and optimizing mineral levels in the body.
All you need to do is to combine the following two ingredients in a glass of water and prepare this simple remedy:
- ¼ teaspoons of Himalayan Pink Salt or Celtic Sea Salt
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of raw honey (optional)
Add Himalayan pink salt and lemon juice in a glass of water, and drink the remedy. You can sweeten it with honey. Then, drink a glass of pure drinking water.
Drink a glass of water every 10 minutes in the next half an hour, and lie down. This will alleviate the migraine pain, and if not, repeat the entire method once more.
In the case of dehydration, a little natural salt (Himalayan salt or Celtic sea salt) in water will help your body to retain and rehydrate your cells, providing high amounts of minerals, electrolytes, and important elements.
The minerals from Himalayan salt will treat headaches, boost immunity, energize the body, alkalize the system, and balance your serotonin levels.
On the other hand, lemon juice is rich in flavonoids and essential oils that will help the absorption of any nutritious food that comes in contact with it.
It is highly alkaline and will neutralize acidity in the body, while the flavonoids will drive the rich minerals from the natural salt into your cells 5x more powerfully.
