How to Use Lemon Juice & Himalayan Salt to Help Ease Migraines
Migraines are the worst because they come with debilitating and intense pain. They occur as deficiency of certain minerals. Migraines are common due to dehydration and the consumption of specific foods.
You do not need to feel thirsty to understand that your body is dehydrated. Thirst is a sign that the cells are already dehydrated, it happens when the fluids in the body are depleted below the needed levels for optimal functioning.
An easy way to see if you are dehydrated is to monitor your urine. You should know that a hydrated body makes clear, colorless urine. While on the other hand, a dehydrated body makes yellow urine.
If your urine is dark-colored or orange, then you are severely dehydrated.
Mild dehydration leads to blood pressure changes, fatigue, dry skin, dry mucous membranes in the nose and mouth, poor coordination, impairment of judgment, decreased urine output.
The signs of Unintentional Chronic Dehydration, i.e. UCD include degenerative health issues, asthma, high blood pressure, allergies, back pain, migraines, stress, and headaches.
In case you often have migraines, you can try to ease the issue the natural way, by making a special drink.
- Himalayan Pink Salt OR Celtic Sea Salt – ¼ teaspoon;
- Lemon juice – 2 tablespoons;
- A glass of water – 250 ml or 8oz;
- Raw honey – 1 teaspoon (optional).
In the water add the salt and the lemon juice, stir well in order to dissolve them. Feel free to sweeten this drink with honey. You should drink it right away, and after have a glass of water. Consume a glass of water every ten minutes in the next 90 minutes.
Although usually, salt retains water, the Celtic sea salt or Himalayan salt actually re-hydrates the cells because they are abundant in nutrients, electrolytes, and minerals.
In addition, you should feel free to consume freshly extracted juices high in potassium that might help with the imbalance. Vegetable and fruit juices are abundant in potassium. Lemon juice is great for migraines.
Remember to juice is unpeeled since the peel is rich in essential oils and flavonoids which will boost the absorption of nutrients. It is said that this juice will help combat acidity and improve the absorption of the minerals from the salt.
Try this remedy if you suffer from migraines, and do not forget to drink a lot of water throughout the day.
