Take fresh Ginger at the onset of a Migrain!
Aside from ginger giving us that strong peppery taste that flavors our food so well, according to a study done at a University in Denmark, ginger has been successful in relieving the pain associated with migraines. The earlier you take it, the faster it works. It apparently works similar to aspirin in that it blocks the chemical that causes inflammation of the blood vessels in the brain.
