Headache? Not on New Year

January 1st, 2019 | Uncategorized

A wonderful New Year to all of you! May 2019 bring happiness, health and joy to you! Sometimes and unfortunately, New Year begins with a little (or more) headache due to the extended New Year’s celebrations. For those who want to combat it in a natural way, I have a great tip for you!

Headache? Not on New Year

“Lemon and coffee” is the magic formula! A pharmacist gave me this tip when I had such a severe headache during pregnancy with our son that I sent the expectant father to the pharmacy. He came back without “saving” medication, made me a double espresso, squeezed half a lemon in and served me this medicine.

Granted, it is not delicious. But – it works.

The caffeine narrows dilated blood vessels in the brain and the vitamin C of the lemon contributes to the formation of a body’s own messenger, which dampens the headache.

And all without chemistry. Just try it!

All the best for a headache-free 2019!

Refined and yet so easy. Ginger, curry and turmeric give this soup that certain something. The shrimp make them suitable for a nice multi-course meal. Of course, it also tastes without shrimp. Lightning fast and just delicious.
