Can Water Really Cure Migraines?

It's a question asked by millions of migraine sufferers all over the world. Does chugging water really help with migraines? As a natural health consultant, I've heard this question more times than I can count. And as a fellow migraine sufferer, I know how desperate you can get when you have an attack and are searching for relief. So let's dive into this topic and find out if it really does work.

The Science Behind It
When it comes to migraines, the science behind drinking water is not clear-cut. Studies suggest that dehydration can be one of the triggers that set off a migraine, so it makes sense that drinking more water could potentially offer some relief. However, there is no evidence to suggest that chugging large amounts of water will help stop or prevent migraines in any way. Dehydration is only one potential trigger, so while drinking more water may help in some cases, it won't work for everyone.

Dealing With Migraine Symptoms
So if drinking more water isn't the answer, what is? Well, there are many lifestyle changes you can make to help manage your symptoms and reduce your risk of getting migraines in the first place. This includes eating a balanced diet full of nutrient-rich foods and avoiding processed or sugary foods; exercising regularly; getting enough sleep; managing stress levels; and limiting exposure to triggers like bright lights or loud noises. These lifestyle changes may not completely eliminate your migraines, but they can go a long way towards reducing their frequency and severity.

Alternative Remedies
In addition to making lifestyle changes, there are also many alternative remedies that may help provide relief from migraine symptoms. This includes taking herbal supplements such as feverfew or butterbur extract; practicing yoga or meditation; using aromatherapy oils such as lavender oil or peppermint oil; and trying acupuncture or acupressure massage therapy. While these methods may not work for everyone, they may be worth exploring if traditional methods don't seem to be helping you get relief from your migraines.

Chugging several bottles of water might seem like an appealing solution when you're dealing with a sudden onset of debilitating migraine pain—and while staying hydrated is certainly important—it won't necessarily help you get rid of the headache itself. The best way to manage your migraines is by making lifestyle adjustments such as eating a paleo diet, decreasing inflammation, and exercising regularly combined with alternative treatments like acupuncture and aromatherapy oils which may provide additional relief from the symptoms associated with migraine headaches. Ultimately though, it's up to you to experiment and figure out what works best for you in order to keep your headaches at bay!

By the way, I've gone from 16 to 24 migraines days per month down to less than 1 by decreasing inflammation, eating a paleo diet, and alternative treatments.  Does this still sound overwhelming - like how do I even start?  There is a FREE 11 Day Jumpstart next month where it walks you through step by step and has easy to follow instructions to get you started (all you need is the vitamins and minerals that do the work).  Click Here for details, leave a comment, and I'll get you in!
