Ginger best food to cure headacheGinger

This is our #1 go to for a headache. We love buying fresh ginger at the grocery store or farmer’s market. Not only for our smoothie and juice recipes, when we have a headache we mince or crush about an inch of ginger root and add it to either some decaffeinated tea or just some boiling water for some homemade ginger tea. Drinking this tea will reduce inflammation as quickly as it will take for aspirin or other pain pill to work. You can also try this Migraine Be Gone Juice recipe! We have had a couple in our Blender Babes community actually chew on a small piece of ginger and then rest in the dark for 20 minutes – when they got up, headache was gone!
