All-Natural Migraine Solutions

Stop your searing headache with these three all-natural remedies.

All-Natural Migraine Solutions

During a migraine headache, the blood vessels around your brain expand, irritating the tissue and nerves around them. Try these all-natural solutions to help stabilize those blood vessels in order to get rid of the throbbing pain.

Solution #1: Prevent Migraines With Magnesium and Riboflavin Foods

Magnesium helps stabilize blood vessels and riboflavin is a B vitamin that helps brain cells use energy. Eating foods that contain both of them will help keep a migraine at bay.

Try these food combinations:

  • Bananas (magnesium) and almonds (riboflavin)
  • Spinach (magnesium) and eggs (riboflavin)

Solution #2: Drink Feverfew Tea at First Sign of Pain

Feverfew helps control the expansion and contraction of the blood vessels in your head. Drink a cup to help relieve your first pangs of migraine pain.

Solution #3: Chew Raw Ginger

Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory, blocking substances that cause swelling. One study showed that ginger was just as effective as a popular migraine drug in treating the symptoms. Chew on about a quarter of an inch of raw ginger to help ease your pain. 

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
