Migraines: Take a Butterbur supplement to prevent migraine headaches. Take 75 MG twice a day. Look for PA-Free.
Pain: A SAMe Supplement has been shown to ease chronic pain just as effectively as Ibuprofen. Start with 200 MG twice a day. Can take up to 1,200 MG per day. * Has even been shown to alleviate depression.
Sleep Aid: Take a supplement that combines Valerian Root, Hops, and Passion Flower to help you get a better night’s sleep. Dr. Low Dog shared a study that showed this combination to work as effectively as Ambien, but without the same side effects.
Look for 300 MG of Valerian Extract, 80-100 MG Passion Flower, and 30-50 MG Hops Extract to get the most benefit, which can take up to two weeks.
