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.

Hello, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the service you provide with your herb company. My husband now tells everyone the benefits of herbs. This strikes a lot of people as funny, because my husband is a big ole' country boy type who is a logger. Yes, I can remember the day he turned up his nose at them, but with God's help, he now looks at them differently. Thank you for the company. I share it with anyone who asks about herbs.

We also have found help for our deacon at church who suffers from chronic gout. I had read herbal teas could help with this, so he tried Peppermint tea. He has found some relief for his gout, and tells everyone about it. That's the reason I order so much peppermint. So, once again, I thank you for your service, and I pray that the Lord will continue to help you in this service. Thank you.

PS. The How to Herb Book and The ABC Herbal have been wonderful helps to me.


Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
