If you’ve ever endured the agony of a migraine you understand the debilitating suffering it can cause. When painkillers wouldn’t touch it, I secretly wondered if I had some sort of aneurysm building pressure and this was my time to go… but I found a fix that cost me pennies and worked within minutes…Migraines aren’t minor headaches that pop up now and then, they’re tumultuous bolts of pain that can be accompanied with nausea, dizziness, dehydration and brain fog.
Is it a Headache or a Migraine?
- Migraines Last 4-72 Hours
- Does it feel as if it’s Pulsating and or worsened by physical activity?
- Are you experiencing nausea?
- Are you experiencing sensitivity to light (Photophobia) or sound (phonophobia) or both?!
- If you experience a flashing light (aura) sensation just before your headache begins
- Impairment of vision
If your headache resembles the symptoms above, you’ve likely suffered a migraine.
There are different types of migraines, and obviously, different causes for them.
Natural Migraine Relief
Here’s what worked for me, mix half a teaspoon of cream of tartar with 8 oz of water and drink it. Within a few minutes of finishing the glass my migraine dissipated and within 30 minutes, it was gone completely.
The taste is slightly tangy, almost like sour babies candies once the majority of “sour” has been sucked off them.
Those who have a family history of migraines often have a genetic mutation affecting the Tresk Potassium channel, causing nerves to become overly excited.
Cream of tartar is 20% potassium, (or 495mg per teaspoon).
People who have mild to moderate renal insufficiency or persons taking drugs that increase serum potassium (like potassium-sparing diurectics or angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors) should avoid ingesting cream of tartar.
Excessive potassium can can imbalances in electrolytes or potential heart issues as well, so be sure to check with your doctor.
