Almost 5 million people in the U.S. experience at least one migraine attack per month, while more than 11 million people blame migraines for causing moderate to severe disability. The World Health Organization estimates that migraines effect about 30% of the global population, while 1.7–4% experience headaches more than half the time. Headache disorders, according to the WHO study, were the third-highest cause of disability. Migraines occur more often in women (18% of women compared to 6% of men), and are most common in people between the ages of 35 and 55 – prime working years. Ninety-one percent of people who have suffered from a migraine said they had to miss work or otherwise couldn’t function properly.
Migraines are headaches that last from 4-72 hours and you may experience nausea and vomiting as well as sensitivity to light or sound. Migraine sufferers frequently report sharp pain that only worsens with normal activity. Migraines are associated with auras in some people. Auras are warning symptoms that may occur before you experience a migraine. These warning symptoms usually consist of visual disturbances such as flashing lights, or changes in smell or perception.
Salt is one ingredient that can help you control your migraines. When you use salt to relieve migraines, make sure to use high quality salt such as Himalayan crystal salt. It’s the most complete salt in the world. It contains 84 minerals, electrolytes and elements – a fascinating number considering that there are only 118 elements known to science. This salt helps reduce the severity of migraine headaches, strengthens the immune system, increases energy levels, balances serotonin levels in the bloodstream, restores the body’s alkaline and electrolyte balance and much more.
You only need three things:
- Lemonade or lime juice
With the three ingredients ready, the whole process is simple:
- Take a glass of water.
- Add the lemon juice or the lime juice.
- Add the salt.
This technique is quite effective and many people have attested as to how quick the response is. What’s more, salt is safe to use in general.
Other home remedies for migraines that can help you relief the pain are:

Apply Gentle Pressure
Resting, sitting and lying quietly in a dark room or a low-lit room can ease the tension in your head, neck, back and shoulders. In addition, you can ask someone close to you to apply gentle pressure (for about 15 to 20 seconds repeatedly) to the affected region of your head with thumb and index finger; this will help ease the pain. Furthermore, to help ease your tense muscles and blood vessels, you can perform physical activity every day.
