Natural Migraine and Other Headache Remedies

While medical science cannot positively point to a specific cause or a set of causes of migraine headaches, every person who suffers from them just want them to stop. Knowing what triggers your migraine headaches certainly help reduce their frequency and intensity, but when you can’t control your environment, knowing a few self-help remedies can reduce your agony if not stop it altogether.

Reduce Exposure to Your Triggers

Sometimes easier said that done, if your trigger is, indeed, environmental, move away from the strong perfume or into non-smoke-filled area and try to relax. If light sensitivity and nausea accompany your migraines, lie down in a dark, quite area; taking a nap can help as well.

If stress is a trigger, taking short but frequent breaks – with full knowledge and permission by your employer—can help avoid or reduce them if caught in time. Walking or excessive movement could be counterproductive to allaying the onset of a migraine. It might help reduce stress for most, but if you suffer from migraines, sit or lie down instead, allowing the body and mind to more fully relax. Once the migraine onset symptoms have passed, then a short walk might help confirm its passage.

Herbal Remedies

Should you feel a migraine coming, a few natural and safe herbal aids might help. Although not everyone response noticeably to these herbs, most people do to one extent or another.

1. Butterbur: Available commercially most commonly as Petadolex, this herbal supplement tablet should have standardized content. Ask the pharmacist regarding the tablets’ content ratio. If it is sub-standard, look for a higher content.

Because elements of the plant itself can be toxic, do not ingest the plant or parts of the plant in the wild or in non-tablet form. It’s far better to spend a few dollars in a retail environment and be safe than it is to hope the powder you might find is okay

2. Feverfew: Small studies conducted on this herb have shown promising effects on migraines. While widespread medical acceptance is yet to be lauded, primarily due the small number of studies conducted to date, the results are uniform across those studies that have been conducted. Results are better when taken in prevention of migraines rather than a remedy.

3. Peppermint: Direct application of a peppermint oil to your forehead and temples can have a faster affect than eating a peppermint candy, though in a pinch, those can help, too. Peppermint causes a chemical reaction that helps block migraine pain. If you aren’t allergic to the oil or the candy, just a few drops absorbed into the skin, along with the circulation improvement to help relax muscles, can have noticeable improvement in a very short time.

4. Caffeine: If caffeine isn’t a trigger for you, having a quiet cup of caffeinated coffee, tea or soft drink can help any headache pain. Aspirin contains approximately three percent caffeine, coincidentally. If liquid caffeine isn’t available, a quarter of one tablet of a stimulant can help. Allow at least 30 minutes for digestion and response before you opt for more, and always keep additional doses to the one-quarter limit.

5. Magnesium, Vitamin B12 or riboflavin: These, among other vitamins and minerals, are often recommended by physicians and other licensed practitioners. For proper dosage for your migraine severity and physical condition, please consult your physician.
