Migraine sufferers ’may have nutritional deficiencies’
Individuals who suffer from migraine but have not found any conventional medication that eases the pain might need to look at their diet to see whether they need nutritional supplements.
According to alternative medicine enthusiast Natalie Marx of the Jerusalem Post, once a person has been checked over by their GP for any underlying cause of the condition, it may be time to pay closer attention to the foods they eat to see whether any of them trigger serious headaches.
She explained that nutritional deficiencies can play a significant role in the development of migraines, particularly a lack of essential fatty acids, such as those found in oily fish, flax seed oil and hemp seed oil, and not enough magnesium, which is found in green leafy vegetables.
Ms Marx advises migraine sufferers to try herbal supplements if other approaches to addressing the pain have failed.
"Herbal medicine has been effectively treating migraines for centuries and doesn't have the side effects of conventional painkillers," she posited in the newspaper.
"One of the most popular botanicals traditionally used for migraine headaches is Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium). It grows in the garden during summer and a fresh leaf a day [can be] taken as a tea. I have found this to be effective in helping chronic cases of migraine, but it can take a few months to take full effect," Ms Marx added.
As well as making us feel better inside, a healthy diet can get us looking great on the outside too.
Stuff.co.nz reported that good hair health starts with the basics, so individuals wanting strong, glossy locks should eat high-quality protein foods such as beans, tofu, lean meats and quinoa with every meal.
"The hair is made of protein so this is essential," advised nutritionist Zoe Bingley-Pullin.
Essential fats are also needed to get hair looking shiny and thick, so stock up on flax seed oil, fish, avocado and raw unsalted nuts, she added.
