If you have ever experienced migraine, you know that it is a debilitating and sometimes incapacitating condition. Migraines/headaches are a way our body signals to us that our body is deficient in certain minerals.
Most of the time, when the body is dehydrated and lacking certain nutrients, migraines may be repeated until we really pay attention to what we are putting into the body. Certain foods may trigger a migraine as they further dehydrate your body, avoid them!
How Do You Know You Are Dehydrated?
You don’t need to be thirsty to tell you that you are dehydrated. If you are thirsty, it means your cells are already dehydrated. A dry mouth should be regarded as the last outward sign of dehydration. That’s because thirst does not develop until body fluids are depleted well bellow levels required for optimal functioning.
Monitor your urine to make sure you are not dehydrated:
- A hydrated body produces clear, colorless urine.
- A somewhat dehydrated body produces yellow urine.
- A severely dehydrated body produces orange or dark-colored urine.
The effects of even mild dehydration include decreased coordination, fatigue, dry skin, decreased urine output, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, blood pressure changes and impairment of judgment.
Stress, headache, migraines, back pain, allergies, asthma, high blood pressure and many degenerative health problems are the result of UCD (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration).
Dehydration is not about a thirst that can be quenched with just drinking water at that time. Dehydration in this case is how your body has been living with insufficient water for many years, and severely deficient in certain minerals especially magnesium, and presence of other toxicities such as heavy metals.
Migraine sufferers are often anxious to rid themselves of the terrible pain characterizing this condition. A migraine is not to be taken lightly, a really bad migraine can pretty much cripple you and take you down for the rest of your day. What’s worse, there are some migraines that can’t be abated with your usual pain killers.
There is a method though, on how to “trick” your body using these two ingredients to mitigate the pain.

BUY PURE NATURAL SALT:
As you might know, salt (sodium) retains water. This is why when you eat foods that are excessively salty, you feel thirsty and want to drink a lot of water, and you get water retention. Salt can retain water many times its own weight, causing a swollen feet that we know as edema.
