Migraines are very common and can be different for everyone, but here are just a few of many tips to keep you on track and on top of your migraines.
^Keep track of your triggers by recording dates, times, what you are doing just before, what you ate that day…Look for common culprits like (chocolate, caffeine MSG, stress, weather changes, processed meats, vision problems, etc…)
^Take your B vitamins…B vitamins lower levels of amino acids which triggers migraines.
^stick to a steady sleep routine, and take 10-20 min. power naps if you can…let your brain and nerves rest a few minutes.
^Remember to get sufficient amounts of calcium and magnesium which stabilizes blood vessel walls and prevent spasms that occur during the attacks.
^Some natural remedies that you may try for pain and treatment is fever few, cayenne, chamomile, ginger, peppermint, rosemary, valerian, willow bark, and …My personal favorite is hops capsules by eclectic institute. You may also try ginkgo biloba extract it enhances cerebral functions.
…Remember everyone’s body is different, if one remedy is not to your liking don’t be afraid to try a different one. Just be sure to discuss it with your ND or MD if you are taking other meds, pregnant, or breastfeeding.
