Sudden Fatigue

People who do not get enough vitamin D will often find themselves exhausted for no reason at all. Even doing the slightest bit of work can fatigue a person if they do not have enough.

Constantly Sweating

If you do not have enough vitamin D, you may find yourself sweating at the forehead constantly. This could be an early warning sign that you are not getting enough vitamin D in your diet.

Shifting Moods

Not getting enough vitamin D can also make a person have mood swings. It is important that you get enough so that your serotonin levels are in prime condition. This hormone is the reason for your good mood feeling and has a major impact on the rest of your body if not satisfied.

Bone And Muscle Weakness

Migraines are one of the cruelest things that can happen to us, especially when we are trying to enjoy ourselves with friends, family, or wherever we may be at the time. Sometimes migraines can be triggered by weather pressure changes, eating certain soy products, dehydration, loud noises, stress, and even red wine.

As we try to go about our daily lives, it can be difficult to reduce these minor annoyances that cause a severe pain. If you are a woman, then you know all too well about having a migraine from hormonal changes, which isn’t fun for anyone involved.

We come baring good news about a quick and simple way of relieving these extreme pains. According to a recent study that found that monoterpenes in frankincense as well as other essential oils can take on the role of a powerful anti-inflammatory. What this means is is that they are able to reduce the swelling of your blood vessels/reduce severe pain.

Another study shows that frankincense oil is able to reduce the frequency as well as severeness of headaches in individuals who suffer from the intensity of debilitating cluster migraines. However, if frankincense does not work well with you, applying a cold, wrapped ice pack to the back of your neck can reduce a migraine pretty quickly. You can also try running cold water over your head to help reduce the size of your blood vessels. Another method you can try is holding cold water in your mouth as you breathe through your nose.

These are all really good ways to reducing migraines and the severeness that comes along with them.
