Here at PositiveMed we get dozens of requests for help with cure migraines. I did a little research and came up with a few migraine headache relief that may help. We are not here to replace professional medical advice, but rather to work with it, please talk to your doctor about any new natural remedies you are trying. Some triggers for migraines include smoking, alcohol use, dehydration, fluorescent lights, Vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies, food allergies or intolerances, chemical sensitivity, high blood pressure, and hypoglycemia.
Most people who suffer from migraines have an inability to function at a normal level while a migraine is going on and often suffer from nausea and vomiting in addition to the pain. More than 30 million people in the US suffer from chronic migraines, and also suffer from sensitivity to light and sound.
A few remedies for migraines include feverfew or butterbur extract, which are better at preventing than treating, it takes a couple months to see a difference but many people do find relief from these natural anti-inflammatories. A hydrotherapy shower, which consists of water as hot as you can stand for 2 minutes, then as cold as you can stand for 2 minutes, alternating for 20 minutes, will increase blood flow and oxygenation while removing toxins. Working the acupressure point between thumb and first finger will give some relief as well.
Diet changes are critical, avoid food additives, allergens, and alcohol. Make sure you are sufficiently hydrated, for every other fluid you drink besides water, drink more water. Aromatherapy is helpful to most people, lavender and peppermint are most common, but eucalyptus, sandalwood, and basil can also be used.
