Many people use the term “migraine” to describe any persistent, nagging headache. However, it is important to know that not all headaches are migraines and that not all migraines are serious. However, these pains are generally accompanied by symptoms such as nausea and increased sensitivity to light, sounds and odors, they can be particularly disabling. In this article, we will offer you a remedy based on lemon and salt that will allow you to tell god with migraine in a few minutes.
Although migraines are the result of unusual brain activity, their causes are not always obvious to understand. In fact, these seizures usually involve throbbing headache, intense and unilateral, accompanied by other symptoms ranging from nausea to paralysis or slurred speech. Thus, these symptoms are so wide that migraine is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed.
Better understand migraine
Our colleagues in Doctissimo report that more than 10 million people suffer from migraine headaches in France and that one in two people would ignore the origin of their pain.
As the cause of migraines is not yet known, one of the dominant theories is that these are caused by rapid waves of activity of brain cells crossing the cortex, the thin outer layer of brain tissue, followed by periods of inactivity. Also, genetics can make a person more sensitive to triggers that can cause migraines including:
· Hormonal changes: Women may have migraine symptoms during their periods, for example.
· Emotional triggers: Stress, depression, anxiety, excitement or shock can cause a migraine.
· Diet: An abuse of alcohol and caffeine for example can help trigger migraines. An unhealthy diet and dehydration are also considered triggers of migraines.
· Physical Disorders: Fatigue, poor sleep , shoulder and neck strain, poor posture and physical overwork have been associated with a high risk of migraine headaches.
· External triggers: Screens, strong smells, smoke, bright lights and some noise can trigger migraines.

Why does it work?
Lemon: Rich in vitamin C, phosphorus, potassium and citric acid, lemon is an anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antiseptic and natural antioxidant. This little treasure is full of health benefits, including reducing your risk of heart disease and stroke. Also, studies have shown that lemon can reduce the intensity of pain and duration of migraine attacks.
Water: Headache due to dehydration is caused by insufficient fluid in the body. It can be relatively mild or more severe in the form of migraine. Indeed, when the body is dehydrated, the brain contracts temporarily causing a headache. Thus, once rehydrated, the brain returns to its normal state, relieving the headache de facto
Sea salt: Celtic sea salt is a term for naturally wet salt from Atlantic seawater off the coast of Brittany. It is naturally aerated and sun-dried in clay ponds, then plucked with wooden tools to preserve its enzymes. When the body dehydrates, it loses liquids that contain water and dissolved salt called electrolytes. So, according to the Healthline website , to maintain hydration of the body, it is therefore important to drink water and liquids containing electrolytes.
Lemon is not recommended for people with biliary or renal disorders, stomach ulcers or citrus allergies.
The sodium in salt can have adverse health effects. Also, excessive consumption of sodium can lead to problems with water retention.
We remind you that self-medication is generally to be avoided and we advise you to consult your doctor before using this type of treatment .
