Suffering from migraines?

Suffering from migraines? Perhaps you need to add a little bit more salt to your food. Studies indicate that dietary sodium may be associated with chronic headaches, showing that sodium concentrations in the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and central nervous system tend to be correlated with migraines. Some individuals report having fewer severe headaches and migraines when they eat salty food. Researchers warn, however, that high sodium consumption is linked with stroke and heart disease and that people should wait for more conclusive evidence before changing their diets.
