for many ailments including headache relief. No one is
sure why this vinegar works, but it has been used for centuries for
this problem. Take a large bowl of steaming hot water and place a
quarter cup of the vinegar into it and place a towel over your head and

Food that brings
Home remedies for headaches #5: It has been found that those who suffer
most from chronic headaches are often low on the minerals magnesium,
calcium and iron. Modern medicine doesn`t yet know what the connection
is to the low levels of these minerals and chronic headaches, but it
none the less often seems to be the case that many with low levels of
these minerals in their body suffer more often then those who don`t. To
get more magnesium start including more dark leafy greens in your diet.
You can also include a handful of nuts and seeds to increase your
levels of this important mineral.
For those who think that dairy is the best source for calcium...
think again. For dairy a cup of milk tops the list with 300 milligrams
of calcium which is about 30% of the recommended Daily Value (DV). But
for those of you new to this site, we don`t recommend dairy and believe
you should remove it from your diet or at least greatly limit it.
Seaweeds are some of the foods highest in this and other minerals. One
or two servings,(100g), of hijiki has a full days
supply of calcium, (1400 milligrams). Nori is a dried seaweed often
used to wrap sushi has 410 milligrams of calcium per 100g. Wakame has
100 milligrams per 100g.
For iron these some seaweeds top the list. Hijiki has 55 mg of iron
per 100g servings which is about 300% of the DV. Nori has 13
milligrams, but wakame has only 1 milligram of calcium per 100g
servings. Spinach is also a good source for all three minerals however
not quite as good as the seaweeds mentioned. Many other vegetables are
good sources of one or more so be sure to include 7 - 9 servings a day
for complete nutrition.
