One of our young adult children has been having migraines for several years, so I have been searching for possible effective natural migraine remedy for a while. It has also helped keeping a journal of possible food triggers. I suspected excitotoxins contained in food eaten away from home.
I found an early helpful lead in my research at the University of Maryland Medical Center website. Their website states, “Feverfew became popular in Great Britain in the 1980s as a treatment for migraines. A survey of 270 people with migraines in Great Britain found that more than 70% of them felt much better after taking an average of 2 – 3 fresh or dried feverfew leaves daily. Several human studies have used feverfew to prevent and treat migraines. Overall, these studies suggest that taking dried leaf capsules of feverfew every day may reduce the number of migraines in people who have chronic migraines.”
What? – Is this little known information really true? Why aren’t more doing this?
I want to recommend Good Girl Moonshine.
For years, it’s been the trend to carry along a water bottle or favorite drink wherever you go. Healthy All-Day-Sipping is a good habit to establish and easy enough to do.
It doesn’t matter if I am out running errands, exercising, working at home or writing the blog — it does what it is supposed to do:
1.) I am less hungry at meals
2.) More satisfied between meals
3.) Gives staying power and alert mental focus in the afternoon when I’m usually sleepy
The first time I remember having ‘Kool-Aid’ was at summer church camp during my young teens. I loved drinking it when I was so thirsty after my Jr. Life-Saving class. It was a novelty, staining our mouths and tongues red. My mom never bought this for us at home!
Later, as a young married wife, I helped serve Kool-Aid during our play group snack time, and all the Moms made comments on how wound up the children were. We thought it was sugar, but I don’t think we had made the connection between artificial food dyes and hyperactivity back in the 80s.
