Unusual solutions to get rid of that migraine.
Migraine attacks can be the worst because it is a pain that absolutely cannot be ignored and most people who experience frequent attacks polish off a bottle of Ibuprofen in a couple of months. Eating these tablets to gain relief from the pain hampers the body’s resistance to enduring the attack and so the threshold of pain that can be borne by a person also reduces significantly. Before long, they will be hooked to the medication to give them relief from even the slightest of migraine attacks. The next time a migraine hits, try one of these natural home remedies, and if anything works for you, stick to them and place the tablets resolutely back into your medical cabinet.
Migraines are often diagnosed to be a result of sodium deficiency which explains how ingesting a lot of salt can help drive it away. Add a high concentration of salt in a tall glass of water along with the juice from a lemon and drink it up to drive away the migraine. Salt also triggers the production of a hormone called serotonin which pumps up the immune system and retains balance of the system by increasing the electrolytes in the body. Stick to the organic Himalayan salt which contains tons of minerals that is absent in regular table salt. However, this solution is not recommended for those who need to refrain from consuming too much salt due to to other medical reasons.
Migraines are often triggered by going for long hours without eating anything or being dehydrated from not consuming any liquids. Many times, grabbing a quick healthy snack like a handful of nuts or even a regular tomato cheese sandwich can drive away the pain. The migraine is your body’s way of calling out for nutrients to be put back into the system to function properly. Grab a bottle of water or a clear drink like sprite that is not sugar free and allow it to fizz out for 15 minutes before consuming. If you don’t have time to eat, grab a quick fruit like a firm banana or an apple. It is advisable that you avoid alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, nuts, seeds, avocados, pork and aged meats and overripe bananas during migraine attacks.
This might not be a likely way to drive away pain but researchers have found that it is one of the most effective ways of treating a migraine. The act of sex releases a plethora of good hormones and chemicals in the blood stream that act as painkillers and gets rid of the migraine. So, the next time your partner says they’re not in the mood because they have a headache, get them into bed and drive the pain away. Or, if that is not an option, even masturbation can help because the orgasm is the goal that releases the endorphins required to make you feel great again.
