Lemon Juice With Salt Can Stop Migraine Headache Within Minutes

Lemon Juice With Salt Can Stop Migraine Headache Within Minutes

Amazing information was discovered that can help with migraines. Apparently there is a natural way that can help stop them in their tracks within minutes.

Make This Magic Migraine Potion

You need three things: water, lemon juice from a lemon, and two teaspoons of salt. Combine the ingredients and drink. Wait a few minutes.

Things that you should keep in mind when choosing ingredients include that the salt should be of good quality. Pink Himalayan sea salt is a good one due to the 80 different trace minerals that it contains (including magnesium.) Eating salt quickly is proven to raise levels of serotonin. That helps to quell pain and inflammation.

Signs That This Is For You

Migraines affect almost  1 out of every 10 people. That is 36 million Americans. Interestingly enough migraines are in the top twenty complaints that cause people to call in sick for work.

Here are the symptoms to assess if you are having a migraine and will benefit from the Lemon Salt Water:

  • Head throbbing
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Dizziness
  • Sensitive to Light, Noise, and Smell (or all at once)
  • Pain that lasts from 2 to 72 hours

Why Do We Get Migraines to Begin With

For the unlucky 10 percent of people that get migraines, I’m sure the question often is “Why Me?” as they think about ramming their head repeatedly against a wall. I obviously can’t tell you specifically, but I do have a list of causes. See if any seem to relate to your situation and if so, maybe you can head some things off before they start.

  • Stress can be a cause. Migraines can start as a stress headache and then once the wheels get moving it goes to full blown migraine in no time.
  • Alcohol consumption can cause some people to develop migraines.
  • Allergies can set off a chain reaction that develops into a migraine.
  • Deficiencies in vitamins and minerals can also cause a migraine to start.
  • The most common cause seems to be dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. That is a sure way to feel sluggish (best case scenario) and if you are already prone to migraines, you could be leading your body to a huge headache (worst case scenario.)

The Big D(ehydration)

Apparently you can become dehydrated even if you drink a lot of water. This is because when the electrolytes in your body are low, your body works to remove the excess water to get it even with the electrolytes. They call this balance a state of homeostasis.

Additionally it is theorized that migraines themselves can cause dehydration. That is sure to start a vicious cycle if that is the case. Dehydration causes migraines, which further deplete the body of hydration and in turn more migraines occur. No wonder they can last for days as your body struggles to find a balance that is providing the proper hydration.

The Big E(lectrolytes)

Previous to  my research for this article I knew very little about electrolytes except that they are something contained in Gatorade. Now I know that electrolytes are actually minerals in your body that have a positive electrical charge. The functions that these electrolytes are responsible for helping carry out are some of the biggest processes in the body. Including supporting nerve function, regulating cardiovascular system, and regulating muscle function.

Another mineral that has an important part in all of this is magnesium. Magnesium is a natural anti-inflammatory. It is thought that migraines are an inflammatory response. This explains the good quality salt required for the Magic Potion above to stop your headache. the magnesium from the salt will help combat the inflammatory ruckus in your head.

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

1. Exercise Daily

It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

3. Acknowledge Your Limits

Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

The basic nutritional advice includes:

  • Eat unprocessed foods
  • Eat more veggies
  • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
  • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

    5. Watch Out for Travel

    Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

    This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

    If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

    6. Start Slow

    Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

    If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

    7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

    Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

    My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

    If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

    I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

    Final Thoughts

    Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

    Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
