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.

Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased w/my herb order I received today...This is not my first order, and I have been happy each time. Your orders arrive so quickly. Today's order was very timely as a few of us are suffering the effects of a cold and I had ordered some Echinacea Purpurea tops... Of course, I made some tea up right away. Thank you.

Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
