3 Simple & Powerful Solutions for Women with Migraines

Studies conducted by Migraine Research concluded that prevention is the most effective step when dealing with migraines. These 3 simple and powerful solutions, will decrease the main triggers:

  • High level of inflammation
  • Stress
  • Hormonal imbalances

1. Sleep 7-8 Hours at Night 

Sleep is very important for regeneration of our organs. Hormones like ghrelin and leptin, only get balanced during sleep. These hormones play a major part in the inflammation causing migraines.

  • Avoid electronics in your bedroom
  • Have a sleeping routine
  • Go to bed before midnight
  • Practice deep breathing exercises taking a deep breath filling your stomach with air for 4 seconds hold the air 4 seconds and exhale for 6 second. Repeat 9 times.
  • Exercise 30-40 minutes, 4-5 days a week.


2. Drink 8-12 Cups of Water a Day

Our body’s composition is 60% water. Our brain is floating in a fluid composed of 70% water and our cells are constantly working for us. When our organs and tissues are dehydrated we increase the triggers for migraines. Water is medicine.

  • Set up an alarm in your phone, to remind yourself to drink water.
  • Carry a filled 64 oz. bottle
  • Add fresh herbs and fruits of your preference for flavor


3. Dietary Changes

The foods we consume are directly related to our wellbeing. Keep a journal of foods and events prior to a migraine.

  • Consume 95% plant based diet
  • Avoid added sugars processed foods (foods that have been changed from its original form)
  • Avoid animal milk products, flour, all added sugars, banana, mangoes, sugary drinks, carbonated drinks, non-cooked meals, cold drinks and foods.
