Relief from Migraine Headaches - Naturally

Relief from migraine headaches is possible through natural solutions.

More than 25 million Americans are looking for relief from migraine headaches. And about 17 million, or 75%, are women. Approximately 6 million of those women have what are called “menstrual headaches.” Menstrual headaches occur around the time of ovulation and/or menstruation.

Episodes may last for hours or days, often leaving the person bedridden and unable to fully function. There are many migraine symptoms, but they almost always include recurring intense throbbing pain generally on one side of the head.

Although the causes are not fully known, they appear to be related to excess inflammation triggered by stress and hormonal imbalances. Eating certain foods like chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, MSG or taking various medications, including birth control pills, may also trigger an episode. Fortunately, many sufferers have found both prevention and relief with a less stressful lifestyle, moderate exercise, dietary changes and supplementing with natural anti-inflammatory fish oil.

Begin by finding as many ways as possible to decrease the stress in your life. Next, start to improve your diet, drink plenty of water and add a simple mild exercise program. And, if you smoke, give it up. Surround yourself with supportive, fun and happy people. Consider getting yourself regular massages to help reduce muscular tension especially around the neck and shoulders.

When ever you can, avoid processed foods, sugars, alcohol and caffeine products. Eat more whole grains, plenty of fresh fish and lots of colorful fruits and vegetables. Keep your fat consumption below 30% of your total calories – not too high and not too low.

Supplementing your diet with omega-3 salmon oil rich in EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid)and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)is another excellent migraine relief strategy. Omega-3 fish oils contain natural anti-inflammatory properties, balance hormonal output and have a very beneficial effect on migraines and headaches. Clinical studies in Denmark, Sweden and the U.S. showed that fish oils reduced both the frequency and severity of migraines. Yet, researchers find at least 85% of American women have diets deficient in omega 3 fish oils and nearly 20 percent are so low in EPA or DHA that testing methods are unable to detect any in their blood.

By changing to a healthier lifestyle and diet, including supplementation with high quality omega 3 fish oil, many women have eliminated migraines from their life. For best results, I highly recommend Salmon Oil Plus with UHPO3. Omega 3 salmon oil has a long safe history of helping millions of people around the world to find natural relief for migraines, arthritis, psoriasis, depression, heart disease, asthma, prostatitis, all forms of inflammation and other painful conditions. It also supports brain development in children and optimum brain functioning in adults.

Salmon Oil Plus with UHPO3 is the purest (zero toxicity), most complete and balanced fish oil supplement on the market. It has all 8 omega 3 family members important to human nutrition – DHA, DPA, HPA, EPA, ETA, ETA (3), SDA AND ALA. And they’re all in the same perfect natural balance found in fresh salmon.
