10 Natural Migraine Cures
By Lisa-Anne Sanderson

Migraine ranges from slight headaches to throbbing pain that leaves sufferers incapacitated for days. Symptoms can include dizziness, vomiting and even double vision. It’s often mistaken for sinus headaches. Treatment of migraine is notoriously difficult, but there are completely natural remedies which help in less severe cases.

Here are ten natural migraine cures to try

1. Lie in a darkened room. Glare usually makes migraine worse.

2. An old European treatment is to drink tea with a teaspoon or two of sugar. It’s strange but it can help.

3. Lying down and putting a warm compress on the forehead often soothes the headache.

4. Some doctors suggest placing a compress with ice on the forehead can help the migraine.

5. Alternating hot and cold compresses is worth a try.

6. Putting a few drops of lavender oil on the compress may soothe the headache. Lemon crusts and even cabbage leaves in the compress have also been found to work by some sufferers.

7. Neck stretches or exercise may help.

8. Massage is often an excellent remedy. According to the article, “How to Stop Migraine Pain” at Bottom Line Secrets a good ways to massage is to: “place your thumbs on each side of the spine, in the hollows between the neck muscles just below the base of the skull. Tilt your head back. Press firmly for two to three minutes, breathing deeply as you do”.

Another method the writer describes is to: “press the web between your thumb and forefinger with the thumb and index finger of your opposite hand. Press hard for one minute, breathing deeply. Repeat with the other hand.”

9. Carrot juice with beet or spinach is an old Indian Ayurvedic remedy for migraine.

10. Eating grapes is another Ayurvedic remedy.

It’s probably best to try all of these remedies to see if any work for you. In many cases drugs are necessary as well.

  1. Has anyone tried guarana it did help my wife. Guarana is a native vine of the Brazilian Amazon, and can be bought in tablet form. It does help to relieve headaches and migraine quickly. Guarana is also used as an appetite-suppressant and is claimed as a slimming product. It is also reputed to be an effective sexual stimulant.

  2. The best remedy for migraines is to CORRECT THE CAUSE. While these treatments may be helpful, I would suggest simply fixing the problem. While there are many causes for migraines, pressure on the brainstem is the most common. This causes improper nerve flow to and from the brain and blood flow to the brain is compromised. Getting this pressure off the vitally important brainstem will most often resolve the issue. We use the NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) procedure. (Note: cervical spine is the neck). Proper nutrition with bioavailable foods and supplements is also important, as is proper rest, growing your faith, and regular, high quality clinical massage. If you suffer from migraines, find a NUCCA doctor in your area. You’ll thank me forever for the advice…I promise.

  3. In the migraine community we prefer not to use the term cure. There currently is no cure for migraine disease.

  4. Whilst little is known about the causes of migraine, what constantly recurs in the treatment of this condition is the fact that proper hydration CAN prevent migraine and WILL alleviate the symptoms during an attack. There is documentary and anecdotal proof of this. In order to hydrate properly, sufferers need to consume 6 to 8 eight ounce glasses of pure water per day. Tea and coffee consumption does not count.
