Can Lemon Cure Headaches?

Posted by on Jan. 17, 2013

Lemons can actually provide relief for various conditions like anxiety, fatigue, and tension which – when neglected – could all lead to a headache.

Lemon balm for one is found to have a calming effect that helps reduce one’s level of anxiety. This is good news not only for anxious insomniacs but also for headache sufferers whose pain is more often than not induced by the emotional disturbance.

Lemon juice on the other hand, is a good source of potassium for those with headaches and migraines that are caused by potassium deficiency. Potassium is vital for healthy muscle contraction. Therefore, the lack of this mineral in the body could possibly lead to tension headaches.

However, before exploring any of these options, it is best to ask your doctor first whether or not you’re allergic to citrus and if these reliefs won’t conflict with other medications you may be taking.
