Natural Remedies for Headaches & Migraines

Natural Remedies for Headaches & Migraines

If you suffer from migraines, then you don’t need us to remind you of how excruciating the pain can be.

In today’s society, we are able to click a button and in a matter of seconds, complete any sort of transaction—whether we are setting an appointment, making a purchase, or maybe even filling a prescription. It is now the year 2017 and we live in a world where people forget that there was a time when individuals had to write down directions by hand, read a map, and/or even – (GASP!)—get lost for a little while and try to identify familiar landmarks.

In a society where we all want the quickest fix to all of life’s problems, one would think we would have mastered a quick solution to some of the most common health issues that we deal with. Many times, we do not even realize that we are part of an experiment or a study to see if a product, such as a medication for headaches and migraines, provides the relief we are looking for.

Fortunately, there are some natural, home remedies that can be utilized to help with your headache and migraine relief:

Lavender Oil, Peppermint Oil, and Basil Oil:

Lavender oil, basil oil, and peppermint oil can help with headaches and migraines.    Two to four drops of lavender oil for every two to three cups of boiling water are recommended when inhaling lavender-oil vapors as a headache treatment.  Lavender oil can be either inhaled or applied topically, but should not be taken orally.  Peppermint oil opens up the sinuses so that more oxygen can get into the bloodstream, and this is helpful due to headaches and migraine pain being a result of poor blood flow.  Basil, as we all know, is an herb used on pizzas and pastas, smells good, tastes good, and the oil derived from it actually works as a muscle relaxant, so it helps for headaches and migraines caused by tension and tight muscles.

Diet Modification:

There are specific foods that affect the frequency and severity of headaches and migraine pain.  Some are chocolate, peanut butter, fruits such as avocado, banana, and citrus, meats like bacon and hot dogs because they contain nitrates, and onions.  In addition, foods containing monosodium glutamate (MSG), foods containing tyramine, (an amino acid found in red wine), and foods that are pickled or fermented.  What can be helpful, is using a food diary to track these trigger foods and how you personally react to them.

Magnetic Therapy:

Maybe you know somebody with a magnetic pill or headband, or somebody who wears magnetic jewelry.  Magnets are known to stimulate hormone production within the body.  When magnets are placed around the head, the electromagnetic pulses generated by the magnetic field will cause increased electric activity within the brain.  Serotonin is the hormone that controls mood, commonly associated with migraine, stress and depression.  Melatonin is responsible for the internal body clock, it is associated with insomnia, seasonal dysfunction disorder and migraine. Magnetic fields around the head will gradually increase the bodies levels of serotonin and melatonin plus magnets are known to increase the blood levels of what are considered to be the bodies natural pain killers, endorphins.  The combination of the increase of these three hormones will help prevent the initiation of a migraine, or if you are already suffering from a migraine, the duration and intensity of the migraine will be greatly reduced.

There are many other home remedies that can help, but it is important to remember we are all created differently and our bodies and minds react differently than one another.  We can’t tell you what will work for you, but at least yuu can have peace of mind knowing there are natural healing alternatives that exist and it is just a matter of figuring out what works for you!

What is Magnetic Therapy?

What is Magnetic Therapy? Magnetic Jewelry

The Definition of Magnetic Therapy

Magnetic Therapy is the practice of using magnets as a natural healing alternative to conventional pain relief.  Magnetic Therapy has been used for 1,000’s of years to improve health.  Magnetic Therapy does not in any way replace the need to consult a healthcare professional if you need medical attention.

How do Magnets Relieve Pain?

When used on the skin, magnets relax capillary walls, thereby boosting blood flow to the painful area.  Magnets also help to prevent muscle spasms that underlie many forms of pain apparently by interfering with muscle contractions.  They also interfere with the electrochemical reactions that take place within nerve cells, impeding their ability to transmit pain messages to the brain.  Pain can be controlled by over-the-counter painkillers, but unlike pain medications, magnets do not carry any risk of side effects.  If something works and has no side effects, then use it.  In modern medicine, far too many people suffer & die waiting for a therapy to be effective or approved.

Magnets used on Acupuncture Points

We use magnets on acupuncture points to help with various conditions.  See the acupuncture charts on our website.  We have charts showing placement points for rings, bracelets, necklaces & anklets to help with various ailments.  The most common conditions that we hear our customers have experienced relief by using magnetic therapy consist of headaches, migraines, carpal tunnel, insomnia, appetite suppression, tendonitis, arthritis, neck, back, foot, knee & shoulder pain. 

Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome & Magnetic Treatment

Dr. Kyoichi Nadagawa M.D. – one of the world’s foremost authorities on magnetism, states that it seems certain that we can assume that the earth’s magnetic field is decreasing in strength and that this could be the cause of disorder in the human body.  He is concerned that the earth’s magnetic field is decreasing at a rapid rate and that if this continues then the earth’s magnetic field will eventually reach zero in 200 years.  Along with this decrease, the angles of the earth’s magnetic field are also said to be changing.  As the human race has long been under the influence of the earth’s magnetic field, any change in this field could cause disorder in the human body.  Even with a small change in the earth’s magnetic field, the human body will be greatly affected.  This may affect the active current within the human body and so we can imagine that this could be the cause of disorder or change in the body.

Dr. Nadagawa claims that the degrading of the earth’s magnetic field combined with man’s electronic environment is responsible for “Magnetic Deficiency Syndrome”.  Symptoms include stiffness of the shoulder, back, neck, lower back pain and chest pains for no specific reason, habitual headaches, dizziness, general fatigue, various inflammatory & degenerative joint diseases such as arthritis.

Double Blind Studies

Baylor College of Medicine published in the Archives of Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine (Vallbona 1997) concluded that permanent magnets reduce pain in post-polio patients.

What does MagneHealth offer?

MagneHealth has been helping customers since 2006. Magnetic jewelry has been extremely helpful to us personally to alleviate painful conditions and we are happy to share them with you. Not long ago, we experienced many ailments including carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, arthritis, chronic headaches, appetite issues, and most recently, severe muscular and joint pain — symptoms of Lyme disease. With the use of magnets and magnetic jewelry, we have been relieved of the above conditions and are living pain free today!

At MagneHealth, we strive to make our magnetic jewelry as beautiful as it is beneficial. So, upon entering our 14th year, we designed a fresh new line featuring cats eye, turquoise, amethyst and peridot. We offer a comprehensive array of stylish bracelets, rings, necklaces, anklets and more, including our past best sellers, with designs and colors that are stylish and original.

Local Raw Honey for Natural Healing

Natural Healing

Local raw honey is a great addition to your basket of natural healing remedies.  Many of us have heard about the benefits of using honey for allergies. I have personally used honey for my children’s allergies for over 10 years with amazing success!!  And we are still using honey today for allergies and coughs.  Starting the use of honey before allergy season is best.  Using a tablespoon of honey at night for coughs is extremely helpful based on my personal experiences.  There is some discussion about what age raw local honey can be administered so please check with your physician or do some research before using raw honey on a child younger than 12 years of age.

What I didn’t know about raw local honey are all the other health benefits that exist with its use!

Honey can aid in the healing of various ailments.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Reducing Body Fat & Cholesterol
  • Lowering Stress
  • Inhibiting the Growth of Colon Cancer
  • Boosting Brain Health & Memory
  • Lessening coughs
  • Added energy for Athletes
  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Helps with Liver Damage

This information was obtained from the Angela Ysseldyk, a Nutritionist & Beekeeper’s Daughter.  Her website is www.bee-pollen-buzz.com.  The list of ailments that can be treated is long and I have not included them all here.  See her website for a more in-depth look at what can be healed and why.  She sells raw honey, bee pollen and other products on her site that are natural and seem very helpful.

My fiancée brought home two big beautiful bouquets of flowers for me one night.  Very thoughtful & sweet!!  However, my dog began sneezing, had a runny nose and was almost seizing.  I had no idea what was going on with her and why she was reacting this way suddenly.  I thought it could possibly be allergies and gave her some honey.  The honey helped to relieve her symptoms and when I stopped the honey her symptoms returned.  I still brought her to the vet just to be sure and they went through her symptoms and examined her.  They said she quite possibly was allergic to the flowers and should be given an antihistamine.

I had no idea that a dog could be allergic to flowers!!!  The flowers were lilies and my dog was not only allergic, but apparently they could have killed my cat if he had eaten them!! If you have pets, check online, with your florist or vet about the possible effects on your pet before bringing home a new flower/plant, especially with the upcoming holidays.

Happy Holidays,

New Years Resolutions

New Years Resolutions

The new year is the time for making resolutions.  Let’s ring out the old (2016) and let’s ring in the new (2017)!

2016 was personally, my all-time worst year.  I lost my mom, who was 89 years old.  She was not only my mom, but also my best friend.

I also suffered four concussions this year–bringing my lifetime total to seven.  So, I am very excited and looking forward to a much better 2017.

Weight loss is always a top choice for people when choosing a New Year’s resolution.  There are many ways to go about losing weight, and the best way to go about it is not only by eating healthier, but also by exercising more.  Furthermore, in addition to a healthier diet and an increase in exercise, I have found that utilizing magnetic therapy is one of the smartest decisions you can make when trying to lose weight.

Our Magnetrim magnetic ring, when worn on certain fingers, can help with appetite suppression.

We have had many customers provide testimonials in which they have told us that they have successfully lost weight using magnetic therapy for appetite suppression.  People report feeling full faster, they tend to eat less in one sitting, and they find themselves eating smaller meals more frequently during the day.  In regards to results, the ring needs to be worn continuously during this time period and it can take anywhere from a week to a month to notice the effects of the magnets when it comes to appetite suppression.   It is not necessary to sleep with the ring, but you can if you want.

Here’s to a great New Year and good luck with whatever resolutions you may have this year!

Is the Number 3 a Holy Number?

Is the #3 a Holy Number?

In numerology the number 3 values communication and creative energy.  Numerology is the science of divining information about life through numbers.   It has been around for about 2,500 years.

Pythagoras, a Greek mathematician, philosopher, and theorist, born in the sixth century B.C., created the Pythagorean Number System.  He is regarded as the founder of the science of geometry, especially the Pythagorean theorem, which we all know as the formula for a triangle.  Pythagoras realized that numbers are the very foundation of the universe, and his research gave rise to the science of Numerology.  All of this is taken from my favorite numerologist Glynis McCants and her book “Glynis Has Your Number.”  Check out her site by clicking here for some fascinating insights that might change your life!

So, in numerology, the number 12 breaks down to the number 3.  You add 1 + 2 = 3Numerology is based on the numbers 1-9.  There are no double digit numbers, so every number breaks down to a number between 1-9.

That being said, there are many, many instances in religion where the number 3 and the number 12 (the sum of 2) are noted repeatedly.

Christianity:

There are 3 Wiseman or 3 Kings.
They brought 3 gifts, Gold, Frankincense & Myhrr.
There are 3 members of Jesus’s family, Jesus, Mary & Joseph.
Peter denies knowing Jesus 3 times & later says he loves him 3 times.
Jesus raised 3 persons from the dead (or only 3 were recorded).
Jesus answered Satan’s 3-fold temptation by citing 3 scriptural passages.
Paul was blinded for 3 days by Jesus, prayed 3 times for his “thorn in the flesh” to be removed, and he was stranded on the island of Malta after his shipwreck for 3 months.
Jesus prayed to God 3 times in the Garden of Gethsemane.
The inscription on Jesus’s cross was in 3 languages.
Jesus was crucified at the 3rd hour and was on the cross for 3 hours.
There were 3 hours of darkness that covered the land while Jesus was suffering on the cross.
Jesus rose on the 3rd day.
The 3rd day was April 8th (48 = 12 which 1+23).
The Holy Trinity (3) – Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
The 12 Apostles (1 + = 3).
Jesus’s birth month is December or the 12th month (1 + 3).

The Bible:

The Old Testament consists of 3 parts, 1-the Torah or Law, 2-Nevi’im or the Prophets, 3-Ketuvim or the Writings.
The Patriarchs are 3-Abraham, Isaac & Jacob.
Noah had 3 sons.
Job had 3 daughters.
The 3 sons of Adam – Abel, Cain & Seth.
The Ark of the Covenant contained 3 sacred objects – the gold jar of manna, Aaron’s staff that had budded and the stone tablets of the covenant or 10 Commandments.
Moses’s mother was able to conceal her baby for 3 months.
Daniel regularly prayed 3 times a day giving thanks to God.
Israelite men were required to appear before the Lord 3 times in a year, the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, the Feast of the Weeks, and the Feast of the Tabernacles.
The Men of Timnah were stumped by Samson’s riddle for 3 days.
Only 3 angles are mentioned by name in the Bible, Michael, Gabriel & Lucifer.
Jonah spent 3 days in the belly of the “great fish.”
There were 12 tribes in Israel (1 + 3).
Jacob had 12 sons which were the heads or fathers of each of the 12 tribes of Israel (1 + 3).
Between the number 3 and 12, these two numbers are used 654 times.

Buddhism:

3 Jewels – Buddha, Dharma & Sangha.
Prostrations.
3 sticks of incense.
Ceremonial Procession around a temple or tomb 3 times.

So, you decide.  Is 3 a Holy Number?
