Natural Remedies to Alleviate Migraines

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 1



If you are fed up with dealing with constant migraines, then consider some natural remedies as your ally. There are natural ways to combat your migraines, whether it is a once a month thing or a daily torture. It would benefit your health to look into alternative ways to find natural remedies that alleviate your migraines.

In the herbal world, when migraines are mentioned, Feverfew is the first herb to come to mind. Known for its good track record in helping with migraines, you may want to grow this yourself. Chewing 1 or 2 leaves a day on a regular basis may alleviate the pain of your migraine. You have to be patient with this herb, it may take a couple of months to work. Taking two capsules of this herb will work well also, but make sure you buy a good quality product. I should mention as well that Feverfew does not have a great taste. It is very bitter to the taste. You should also know that if you're allergic to ragweed, you should not use Feverfew.

Another good herb to help alleviate migraines is skullcap. This herb is related to the mint family. It will help you to relax in tense times, especially when you have a migraine due to menstrual related problems. You should drink this in tea form a few times a day for a great natural remedy.

Riboflavin has been linked, in recent studies, to having migraines. The lack of it in your diet can cause these problems. You can get this in plenty of foods but it has to be with a regular healthy diet, since it has to be replenished every day. The best food sources to get Riboflavin are eggs, yogurt, spinach, broccoli, and mushrooms. Whole grain foods and wild rice are good sources as well. This may be an easy way to get rid of this problem.

There are dietary reasons that sometimes cause migraines. In order to not mask the problem with migraines, you should investigate and eliminate the possibility of food allergies. Milk products can be a culprit if you are lactose intolerant. Too much salt intake can also be a problem. Food with MSG has been linked to migraines as well. 

Check with your doctor before using any herbal remedies while on prescription medicines.

These are good suggestions. I get migraines. Lack of sleep is a big culprit for me, and cigarettes.
