Many studies have shown that diets deficient of magnesium and B vitamins
often cause headaches. And in these
studies, it is noted that 50% of migraine sufferers are severely deficient in
magnesium. With this fact known, it is
recommended that sufferers increase their daily amounts by eating nuts,
legumes, whole grains, meat and dark, leafy vegetables. B vitamins are readily found by consuming
chicken, turkey, red meats, beans, and dark, leafy vegetables. Consuming raw garlic is also said to help
considerably in relieving general fatigue and headache pain.
Just as some foods can
help to prevent headaches and migraines, some are KNOWN to cause headaches and
migraines. You should avoid eating
chocolate (except for dark chocolate in moderation), drinking alcohol and
consuming a lot of cheese. For some who
battle chronic headaches or migraines, it is advised to keep track of what you
eat as certain foods may be triggers for you.

follows—you would be wise to remove this food from your consumption list to
prevent it from causing you pain.

Willow--White willow is perhaps the
oldest herb known to treat pain and inflammation. The inner bark of the white willow tree
contains salicin, which is changed to salicylic acid in the body. The compound
in aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid, is derived from salicylic acid. White willow
works slower, but lasts longer than aspirin, and has fewer side effects, due to
the large amounts of tannins that protect the stomach.
(NOTE: Do not take willow bark if you are allergic
to aspirin, are currently taking anti-platelet or anticoagulant drugs, or a
child under sixteen years of age who has symptoms of any kind of viral
infection. Be aware that using other products or herbs containing salicylates
at the same time (such as black cohosh, wintergreen essential oil, or
commercial topical preparations such as Ben Gay), increases the amount of
salicylates in your bloodstream, and raises the risk of side effects.)

calming properties and is often used to calm the system and help one rest. Dandelion Leaf—offers high amounts of natural
