Let me just say that I am eternally grateful that I do not suffer from migraines! I know plenty of people who do so I write this for them and for anyone else who might read this (that's up to you, you sharing motivational speakers and readers of motivationalspeakersreview.com you!) As I mentioned in my last post, our pantry is full of healing power. It is my preference to try and diminish any ailment with what Mother Nature has provided first, and then move on to pharmaceuticals if needed. Next time a migraine hits try:
Pumpkin Seeds – (pepitas) They are a leading source of magnesium, a mineral often diminished in migraine sufferers. The connection, they think, is that low levels of magnesium may increase constriction of blood vessels surrounding the brain, contributing to those skull-busters. To try to help quell the jackhammer, munch your way through 1/4 cup of these seeds daily. This will supply you with about half of your daily magnesium needs. Other foods that are a good source are: oat bran, sesame seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, dry roasted soybeans.
Other ways to dose yourself: Sprinkle a handful into oatmeal and salads to add some crunch, add to trail mix, make into pesto. Not recommended to be eaten while under the sheets while in the throws of a head-banger.
