Migraine Prevention

by Christine

June 2009

A surprisingly simple but effective way to cure a migraine headache is to drink as much water as possible (I use room temperature.) The water thins the blood and gets oxygen into the system. I've learned to 'catch' a headache approaching, and drink a half gallon of water over the course of an hour or so, which prevents the headache from even starting. (My symptoms are a low ache in the back of my neck and a fuzzy feeling on my face - perhaps that is dehydration.)

Also, Epsom Salt baths are fabulous for headaches. Ideal at bedtime, the magnesium seeps into the entire body and relaxes the headache away.

I have recently started learning about herbs and their many uses. I live in an area rich with wild plants and herbs, and it amazes me to think they were here under my nose all this time and I thought they were just weeds! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. You truly have a great ministry in what you are doing. ~Lisa


Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
