Headaches are really a bother to anybody, however, migraine headaches could be debilitating.
Migraine headaches differ from standard headaches because they are usually much more painful (often described as throbbing) and accompanied by various other symptoms like blurred vision, sensitivity to light, nausea or dizziness, as explaining by MedicineNet.
While over-the-counter pain relievers can offer some pain relief, extended use can be dangerous, and they may not always work, reported by Best Herbal Health.
The next time you feel a headache coming on, reach for this natural combination instead:
Add the juice from a whole lemon into a cup of room-temperature water and add 2 tsps. of Himalayan crystal stone salt.
Consume the whole cup. Your migraine headache needs to dissipate within a several minutes.
While this may not be the tastiest option, it works for a few reasons. According to Healthy Wild and Free, between 75 percent and 90 percent of headaches are a result of dehydration.
The water helps re-hydrate your body. If you suffer from frequent migraine headaches, the cause could be a salt, mineral or electrolyte deficiency.
Himalayan salt contains over 84 minerals and electrolytes, according to Healthy Wild and Free.
Lemons offer major health benefits, as a whole. They work in this case because lemons offer detox properties. Lemon also encourages proper functioning of the liver, which gets rid of nasty toxins in your body and helps clear up headaches and other body troubles, according to Healthy Wild and Free.
