Why we get migraines to begin with
If you’re one of the unlucky 10% of people that suffer from migraines, you’re probably wondering what causes them. Migraines develop due to a variety of things, from stress, to alcohol consumption, to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. With that being said, the most common reasons for the development of migraines are either dehydration or electrolyte imbalance.
The Big D
Did you know that you can still become dehydrated even if you drink plenty of water? This can occur when electrolyte levels in your body are low. Your body works to remove the excess water in order to bring it in balance with your electrolytes. This balance is called homeostasis.
In addition, medical practitioners theorize that migraines themselves actually cause dehydration, which can lead to the initiation of a vicious cycle, with dehydration causing migraines, and vice versa. This means that the migraines you’re experiencing could last for days as your body struggles to achieve homeostasis.

The Big E
Electrolytes are minerals in your body that have a positive electrical charge. They are responsible for some very important bodily processes, such as nerve function, cardiovascular system regulation, and muscle function regulation.
Another important mineral in addition to electrolytes is magnesium, which is a natural anti-inflammatory. It is thought that migraines are an inflammatory response, therefore it’s a good idea to use high-quality salt in the mixture outlined above to reduce the symptoms of a migraine, or stop one from developing at all.
