As if cramping and actually getting your period weren’t bad enough, your menstrual weeks often come with headaches as well. Menstruation migraines can be frustrating, especially since you already may not be feeling great.
But there are many tricks available to help alleviate almost any menstrual pain, and so too is there relief for headaches! When faced with menstruation migraines, try these four easy, quick hacks to feel better.
1. Drink Some Grape Juice
Select any grape juice without additives or fake flavoring. Grapes contain antioxidants, magnesium, riboflavin and vitamins C and B12, and possess anti-inflammatory properties. Magnesium, B12 and riboflavin are all connected to migraines, and by consuming grape juice, you can hack the system.
2. Nuts and Protein
Think back. Have you missed a meal? With menstruation comes bloating, and you may not feel like eating anything on your period weeks. However, you still need your nutrition, and when you miss meals, you get migraines and feel weak. Mix that with the fact that you’re menstruating, and it’s understandable that you might begin feeling worse. Don’t go three or four hours without eating something, and it may help to break your meals into smaller ones when you’re menstruating.
