The first time I remember having a Migraine attack was when I was six-years-old. At the time, I didn’t realize what it was. There were these spots floating around in my vision that I couldn’t see through. Then my head started hurting so badly that I began crying. Crying just made it worse.

They can very quickly add to our nausea, making our home an unpleasant place for us. So, plan ahead, and reduce fragrances now. 2) Following the fragrance thought: If you're sensitive to fragrances, keep that in mind when you shop for cleaning products. Even if they don't contain fra...
