Migraine can make you hell

Best Blogger Tips
Woman with migraine headache

Since weather is not good at all, very hot on day time and cold at night. This climate trigger my migraine.  Migraine can be set in motion with different factors arises. Climate, stress and hormones. Maybe I have a very (hyper) sensitive brain that overreact to certain stimuli or triggers. Stress is a major migraine trigger. If we suffer from migraine, it's time to build a stress busting activities, such as deep breathing, listening to music and meditation. I try this and it is helpful.

Dehydration is a key factor in many headaches, including migraines. Be sure to drink 6-8 glasses of water or more.  Keep in mind that you need more water if you consume alcohol or caffeine (dehydrating beverages). And it's summer time, you sweat a lot, so you need more water to drink.

Lack of sleep or insomnia can trigger migraine too.  But so much sleep or staying in your bed past in your regular  waking time can also gives you headache. This happen to me too.  So go to bed in your usual time and wake up around same time each day. It is very important to have a  good quality sleep. Make an effort to wind down at least half an hour before you hit the hay. Turn off the computer, cellphone, television to help quiet your mind. Keep your room cool and quiet and block out light.

Just Beautiful : Balaan Bukid

Best Blogger Tips
My sister visits Balaan Bukid (sacred mountain) with her hubby and our niece and nephew last 2 weeks ago. We always visit this place every Good Friday.  We woke up 3am and climb the rocky road for 1-2 hours, as we recite the station of the cross. It’s a nice exercise and the same time your doing some penitence. . This coming Good Friday  me and my family will again climb the mountain. This place is located at Guimaras Island.

Food is powerful medicine

Best Blogger Tips

To keep our antioxidant network strong and effective, we must constantly replenish the antioxidants we lose every second of every day as we carry on our normal activities.  What we can eat can make a huge difference in our ability to maintain the antioxidant advantage and keep our bodies and mind functioning at optimal levels.

There are fruits and vegetable rich in antioxidant that can serve everyday.  Apples, berries, carrots, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage), dried fruits, garlic and onions, greens, red grapes and wine, sesame oil and seeds, soy foods, spinach, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, tea, turmeric, walnuts, and winter squashes - they are all pack in anti oxidants.

Of course there is no substitute for a healthy, well balanced diet. Supplements can help enhance the health benefits of foods, but they cannot do job alone.  Eat an assortment of brightly colored fruits and vegetables daily to ensure that you are getting a full range of phytochemicals.  Limit fat consumption i your daily foods.  Raw, unhydrogenated oils such as canola oil, olive oil, flaxseed oil and peanut oil are the healthiest. Solid fats, such as stick margarine and butter, should be avoided because they promote the formation of disease promoting fats.
