Stop migraine headaches with lemon and Himalayan rock salt

Headaches are a bother to anyone, but migraine headaches can be debilitating. Migraines differ from regular headaches because they are typically more painful (often described as throbbing) and accompanied by other symptoms such as blurred vision, sensitivity to light, nausea or dizziness, according to MedicineNet. 
While over-the-counter pain relievers can offer some relief, extended use can be dangerous, and they may not always work, according to Best Herbal Health

The next time you feel a headache coming on, reach for this all-natural concoction instead:
Add the juice from a whole lemon into a glass of room-temperature water and add 2 teaspoons of Himalayan crystal salt. Drink the entire glass. Your headache should dissipate within a few minutes. 
While this may not be the tastiest option, it works for a few reasons. According to Healthy Wild and Free, between 75 percent and 90 percent of headaches are a result of dehydration. The water helps rehydrate your body. If you suffer from frequent migraine headaches, the cause could be a salt, mineral or electrolyte deficiency. Himalayan salt contains over 84 minerals and electrolytes, according to Healthy Wild and Free. 
Lemons offer major health benefits, as a whole. They work in this case because lemons offer detox properties. Lemon also encourages proper functioning of the liver, which gets rid of nasty toxins in your body and helps clear up headaches and other body troubles, according to Healthy Wild and Free.
