Sidestep this Surprising Migraine Trigger

migraine

 

If you are bothered by one of more head pounding migraines per month, your sleep

habits could be to blame.  This said by the Missouri State University pain researchers.

In their study they found that an erratic sleep schedule – be it too little sleep, or too

much sleep –  triggers pain in the nerve that runs from the brain stem to the face and plays a major part in migraines.  The easy fix:  Aim for seven to eight hours of sleep per night.

Please share with family and friends.  If you have any concerns or questions please call.

Keeping Your Body Hydrated, is not a Joke!

dehydration

Adverse effects from not drinking enough water include digestive, skin, bladder and kidney problems, fatigue, and even headaches. Type 1 Diabetics know first hand the importance of hydration. We need water as much as the air we breathe in!

Keeping your body hydrated is not a joke.

Did you know that dehydration actually sets in just before you start feeling thirsty? Sipping water throughout the day is the best way to handle it. Always have a bottle or a glass of water handy! If you’re not a morning person, having two glasses of water right after you wake up will boost up your blood pressure to normal levels, and it’s way healthier than having your first coffee on an empty stomach.

Many of us believe that merely drinking fluids like sweetened juices, soda or tea will hydrate you as well as water does. This is not true. It’s actually the opposite! To deal with the excess sugar and salt you are taking in your body wastes immense amounts of precious water just to clean it out from your system. And if you love your coffee, make sure to drink one extra glass of water for every cup you have.

Drinking water regularly speeds up your metabolism and makes you feel more ‘full’. You will eat less once you start drinking more! It’s the safest and healthiest way to lose weight. Drink up!
