Herbs and Natural Remedy for Migraine

Many herbs show a greater affinity for the human body than synthetic medicines. This is because they have compounds and molecules attached which make them more easily absorbed into body cells and tissues. These are often in the sugar family. Some are known as glycosides and these and their relatives, mono saccharides, are attracting a lot of interest in the modern research world. These carrier chemicals enable herbal compounds to enter target cells more easily, and may explain how herbs can have an effect, even at quite low doses.

Nutrition for Natural health and Migraine Relief

It is a mistake to look at single nutrients as being a cure for specific conditions, as almost all body processes require a broad range of nutrients to keep them running smoothly. All human cells need sugar as a fuel to perform their vital functions. Muscles use sugar for fuel as well as calcium and potassium to contract and relax. Salt (sodium) plays an essential role in getting calcium into muscle fibre cells and potassium is vital to maintain the correct amount of salt in the body. All these processes are dependent on each other and on a balanced state of nutrients in the body. This is the state of health which the herbalist tries to restore with herbal medicines and holistic dietary advice. It is usual to divide tbod up into seven different categories and we should aim to eat something in each category every day.

You could use these categories to design a food diary or plan your eating for a week.
. Protein - cheese, meat, beans, nuts, fish
. Starch - bread, potatoes, pasta, roots, rice, grains
. Vitamin A - green, orange and yellow vegetables
. Vitamin B - meat, whole grains
. Vitamin C - fresh fruit and green vegetables
. Vitamin D - fish oil and sunlight
. Vitamin E – whole grains and seeds
. Vitamin P - also known as bioflavonoids - fresh fruit and vegetables
. Minerals - calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, found in vegetable and animal foods
. Trace elements - cobalt, copper etc , found in vegetable and animal foods
. Fibre - indigestible parts of vegetables and grains Fat - butter, vegetable and nut oils, margarine.

Daily requirements for nutrients

Sometimes crying or laughing
