The National Headache Foundation stated that more than 29.5 million in USA have migraines. If you also have it, you feel on one or both head sides a sharp awful pain that worsens during activities. It can even cause vomiting and nausea.
Usually the migraine is caused by stress, fatigue, hormone changes or foods like peanuts and chocolate. If you need natural methods to resolve this and not use meds, try DIY ginger ale.
- 4 cups water
- 1 tsp honey, raw
- 1 cup grated ginger and peeled
- Sparkling water, carbonated
- 2 limes juice
Now let the water boil on gas. Add ginger and let it simmer a few minutes and then strain it. Now mix in the sparkling water with the ginger one and add the lime/honey.
