Natural Remedies to Relieve Migraines

Of the nearly 30-million migraine sufferers in the world, nearly three-fourths are women. Doctors often prescribe strong drugs to help with the pain and management of migraines, but strong drugs come with their own negative side-effects. A migraine is more than just a bad headache. A migraine is a throbbing, recurring headache that often plagues just one side of the head. It is often accompanied by nausea and blurry vision. Those who suffer from migraines know that once you feel one coming on, you’d better rush home to a quiet, dark room to nurse or sleep it away. If you’re leery of constantly taking strong medication to alleviate the pain of migraines, consider trying some natural remedies.

While mostly known to help with common cold and influenza-type infections, echinacea has also proven to be helpful to alleviate migraines. Some say that the frequency of their migraines lessened when taking echinacea consistently, and others noted that they were able to take echinacea when they felt a migraine coming on to help relieve some of the pain.

More than just help with migraines, echinacea is a powerful supplement for general women’s health. It can help clear up urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast infections, gum disease, and even tonsillitis. Some have even reported help with chronic fatigue syndrome.

Drink Water and Eat Well
Drinking lots of water every day not only increases your metabolism by 30%, but it also helps ward off migraines. Many intense headaches are caused by dehydration. Drink at least 8 8-oz. glasses of water a day to re-hydrate your body. If you’re struggling to get enough water, figure out a way to make it more appealing to you. Many reports show that people are more likely to drink enough water if they drink through a straw, because it allows them to take larger sips with less work. If you like ice, be sure to fill your cup with ice to keep the water cold and refreshing. Consider adding something like lemon juice or flavored juice powders. Obviously plain water is the healthiest, but if you need a flavored juice powder to help you drink more, do what it takes. Omega-3 fish oil has also been reported to significantly help relieve migraines. Take supplements of this powerful natural remedy, and also be sure you’re eating enough fish, walnuts, and flaxseed.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
