Debilitating migraines are often caused by a deficiency of certain minerals in your body, the consumption of specific foods, or becoming dehydrated.
We do not need to feel thirsty in order to realize that our body needs fluids, as thirst is actually a sign that the cells are already dehydrated. Being thirsty develops when the body fluids are depleted well below the levels required for optimal functioning.
In order to check if you are dehydrated, you should monitor your urine. A hydrated body produces colorless, clear urine, while a dehydrated one produces yellow urine. You are severely dehydrated if your urine is orange or dark-colored.
Mild dehydration causes dry skin, fatigue, poor coordination, blood pressure changes, decreased urine output, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, and impairment of judgment.
Symptoms of UCD (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration) include asthma, allergies, migraines, headaches, stress, back pain, high blood pressure, and many degenerative health problems.
If you suffer from migraines, before you turn to painkillers, you should definitely try the following remedy.
What’s more, it is extremely simple, as you will only need:
- ¼ teaspoons of Himalayan Pink Salt or Celtic Sea Salt
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- A glass of water (about 8oz or 250ml)
- 1 teaspoon of raw honey (optional)
Add the lemon juice and the salt in the water, and stir well to dissolve them.
