Cure Headache Pain With
These 7 Natural Remedies
If you suffer from headaches, try a natural remedy before turning to prescription or over-the-counter drugs. Traditional medicine can cause unwanted side effects for many people, which is why alternative, natural methods are gaining in popularity. Talk to your doctor about using these seven natural headache remedies:
  1. Magnesium:  Sometimes migraine sufferers have been found to be deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is found in dark green vegetables, nuts, and seeds. In tablet form, 400 to 600 milligrams each day may help reduce headache frequency.

  2. Butterbur:  As a headache preventative, this anti-inflammatory herb has been shown to help by preventing attacks. Take 75 milligrams each day.

  3. Ginger:  This herb has been used for thousands of years in India. New research indicates that it reduces inflammation in small blood vessels, including ones in the brain. Try infusing a tea with fresh ginger root from the produce department or from dried powder.

  4. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2):  Studies show Vitamin B can correct small deficiencies in brain-cells. Get more riboflavin by eating leafy green vegetables, dairy products, beans, almonds, mushrooms, or tomatoes.

  5. Sunshine:  The Vitamin D produced when you spend time out in the sun seems to affect the way you perceive pain. If you don’t get enough time outdoors, try taking a 2,000 milligram tablet daily.

  6. Rosemary:  The soothing smell of rosemary tea can help you relax and relieve head tension. Infuse 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried herb in a cup. Also, use rosemary oil to massage into your temples for headache relief.

  7. Valerian:  Although the smell is rather unpleasant, this herb has been used since the Middle Ages to relieve pain and relax the body. It also promotes good sleep. Buy it where vitamins and supplements are sold.

Web Apps That Can
Save Your Life
Can a good “app,” or web application you use on your computer, smart phone, or iPad really save your life? Sounds far fetched until you read what these apps can do to help you live better, longer and stronger.

iTriage: This app helps you search for treatments and causes related to your symptoms. It also can store your health records and guide you to medical facilities in an emergency. Go to www.itriagehealth.com and then click on Mobile Apps.

Pocket First Aid & CPR: With both text and video, this app walks you through the steps to take when someone is in crisis. You’ll see what to do for things like bites, bleeding, bruises, burns or even if the individual has stopped breathing. Type in Pocket First Aid & CPR at www.heart.org.

Melanoma Self-Exams: Use the app at www.melapp.net to take a picture of a questionable skin lesion. Within seconds after tapping on “Check Risk,” the app will provide you with a risk analysis.

Quit Smoking: Download an app called MyQuit Coach from www.livestrong.com and quickly be on the path to becoming a non-smoker. This program creates a personalized plan to help you set goals, track your progress, and connect to others who want to quit.

Brain Trainer: Neuroscientists have designed games to keep your cognitive performance sharp, improve your mood, and enhance your memory. A good one is called “Brain Trainer” by www.Lumosity.com on iTunes. This can help prepare you to think quickly in an emergency to save your life, or someone else’s life.

Fun Facts and Laughs
2 Non-Driving Car Dangers . . .

DANGER #1: Trunk Entrapment.
In summer months, children can die if thye are trapped inside the car trunk. When you leave your car, lock the doors so kids can’t pop the trunk or get in through the fold-down seats. Since 2001, car manufacturers have included an emergency trunk release. Older cars can be retrofitted with an inexpensive kit at www.aablelocksmiths.com.

DANGER #2: Service Station Fires.
Static electricity mixed with gasoline vapors can ignite a fire. The Petroleum Equipment Institute warns that starting to pump gas, followed by getting in and out of the car, and then touching the gas nozzle is a common way to ignite a fire. See a video at www.pei.org/static.

If you get in and out of the car while the gas is pumping, touch metal on the outside of your car to discharge any potential static electricity. If a fire starts while fueling, don’t try to remove the nozzle. Call for help.

How To Give Without Being Taxed . . .

Giving regular gifts to your family is an effective estate planning strategy and can save up to 50 percent in estate taxes. But if you are too generous at any one time, you may have to pay a gift tax. Currently, the IRS let’s you give up to $13,000 each year without being taxed. Spread out your gifts over time to reduce taxes now and then.

Have A Laugh — "Who Survived?" . . .

Nine men and one woman were hanging on a rope under a helicopter. The rope wasn’t strong enough to carry them all so they decided one had to drop off.

The woman made a touching speech saying she would let go of the rope because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids, and for men in general without ever getting anything in return.

As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping their hands…

Thanks For Thinking of Me!

Did you know I can help you or any of your friends or family save time and money when buying or selling a home? Thanks for keeping me in mind with your referrals...and spreading the word about my services.
Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  How do I make my home stand out in the market without spending much money?

A.  If you want to get offers from buyers, make a great first impression by improving these potential turn-offs:

Messy Landscaping:  Buyers are looking for curb appeal. Take the time to clean up an overgrown yard.

Nasty Odors:  You may not smell some odors in your home because you’ve become desensitized to them. Ask your REALTOR® if there are odors (smoke, pet odors) and how you can get rid of them.

Too Much Clutter:  Pack away any items like excess furniture, personal pictures and nick-knacks. They make your rooms look smaller and distract the buyer from really seeing the house itself.

Old Paint:   A fresh coat of neutral-colored paint is a low-cost way to make your rooms look new and fresh.

If you have any other real estate questions, or need capable and trustworthy representation, please call me at 970-231-7700 or email me at nancy@nancybaxter.com.
