Migraines are hellish headaches. Millions of people around the world suffer from them and while there are many pain killers that can solve the pain, we are always here to offer you the best natural solutions.
If you are unsure whether you’ve experienced a migraine or just a nasty headache, the symptoms are stiff neck, food cravings, moodiness, and constipation or diarrhea.
Migraines can be caused by many factors, so make sure to always check with your doctor when you start suffering from one.
Chemical and natural triggers
According to experts at the Mayo Clinic, that most sufferers deal with imbalances of the chemicals in their brain. Low serotonin levels cause severe pain.
Migraines can also be caused by nutritional deficiencies, MSG, alcohol, chocolate, caffeine, stress and aged cheese. Diet changes and weather changes (air pressure) may affect the severity of your pain.
Nutritional deficiency can be caused if you tend to skip meals. When you do this, your body loses its balance, thus making your system unable to function properly.
Experts link riboflavin levels and migraines.
Same goes for vitamin B12. Several studies have confirmed that regular intake of riboflavin reduces the risk of migraines by 50%.
Grape juice treats migraines
While wine can cause mihranes, grape juice can actually cure them.
This is due to the rich content of vitamin C, riboflavin and B12.
Nutrients in grapes boost the function of your liver.
Note that here’s no riboflavin in store-bought grape juice, and it contains added sugar. So, always go for organic grape juice or make it at home!
