Either the music was too loud and someone REALLY pissed Diddy off last night!

Natural Remedies To Treat And Prevent Migraines

Filed under: Exclusives!Q&AFoodHealthMargaux J. Rathbun

Margaux J. Rathbun

Headaches stink, but are there any other treatment options beyond pill popping your closest pain reliever?

FitPerez reader P.N. from Portland, Oregon has been a long-time sufferer of chronic migraines and wrote to certified nutritional therapy practitioner, Margaux J. Rathbun, for a few natural remedies, asking:

Hi Margaux!

I have been a long-time sufferer of migraine headaches. They are so bad that I literally cannot get out of bed! Do you have any tips that could naturally help relieve or prevent these nasty headaches?

According to Margaux:

Thanks for your question! Prior to becoming a Nutritional Therapist, I used to get migraines all the time. I know how horrible they can be! Many things can trigger a migraine including allergies, constipation, stress, too much or too little sleep, and emotional changes. Here are some tips that should help you with these nasty headaches:

- Include watercress, parsley, fennel, garlic, cherries, and fresh pineapple in your diet. Make sure that you are buying all organic foods to avoid pesticides and other dangerous toxins.

- MSG and nitrites (preservatives found in hot dogs and lunch meats) can trigger a migraine. Stay clear of these types of foods!

- Adopt a diet that is low in simple carbs and high in protein. Try eating beans (soak dried beans overnight), chia seeds, and flax seeds.

-Limit your consumption of alcohol and be sure you are always staying hydrated with good quality water.

- Music has a calming effect and can help to relieve migraines. You could turn on some nice classical music, close your eyes, and breathe deeply.

- Get regular exercise. Go for a nice morning walk!

- Adding coconut oil to your daily diet can not only help prevent headaches but it has been shown to improve brain performance. Try a spoonful of this oil first thing in the morning.

- Acupuncture and acupressure have helped many people control the pain of a migraine. Consult with your local natural health practitioner for more information.

Dogs Have Health ESP

Filed under: HealthDog

Dogs Have Health ESP

Another reason to adopt a dog!

Dogs may be "man's best friend," but parrots, cats, lizards and horses also form connections to human beings.

Not only can having a pet cheer you up and reduce your stress levels, but your pet could save your life. These pets may be able to detect cancer, diabetic crises, seizures, migraines and Parkinson's "freezing," helping owners get timely — and often critical — help.

Detecting Cancer
Dogs can actually be taught to detect cancer. Melanoma is the least common but most deadly skin cancer, accounting for 79 percent of skin cancer deaths!

Seizure Assistance Dogs
Dogs can also be trained to respond to seizures, keeping owners safe by fetching help or medication. But we still don't know why dogs have the ability to pick up on a seizure before it occurs. It may be that they cue into subtle body signals, or even chemical changes that make our bodies smell different.

Migraine Alert Dogs
Migraine medications work best when taken as early as possible. Dogs, cats and other pets often naturally detect pre-migraine characteristics.

Diabetes Alert Dogs
The British Medical Journal published a report that discussed how pet dogs sensed an imminent hypoglycemic shock in their diabetic owners and warned them ahead of time to take proper medication.
