ANy natural remedy for migraine menstruation?

Recently I have been suffering with migraine menstruation. It occurs 2 days before menstruating, during and 2 days after. I have tried taking extra strength tylenol but it doesn’t help. I would prefer natural remedy and not drugs. Please any advice.

  • You could have an hormonal inbalance. Visit your doc for a hormone panel blood test to see just what’s happening.

    The key is to eat healthfully – lots of fruits, veggies, seafood, lean meat, 100% whole wheat. Drink lots of water. Avoid simple sugars (cakes, cookies, ice cream, etc.). Take an age-appropriate multiple vitamin and mineral supplement (quality products available at the health food store vs. grocery store). Sugar depletes your body of the necessary vitamins/minerals it needs.

    Research magnesium deficiency and migraine headaches. An additional supplement of magnesium in a chelated form (not magnesium oxide) should help you also. In addition, research the herb "feverfew."

    What goes into the body affects how you feel so be very conscious of what you eat.

    Good luck!

  • iron rich foods may alleviate the pain ….. organic brown rice, leafy and green and salad vegies, free range eggs, organic rolled oats, a handfull of organic almonds or brazil nuts or sunflower seeds….. the greens and nuts and seeds are also rich in calcium and magnesium…… slapping headaches and migraines can be a symptom of iron deficiency or calcium magnesium deficiency… or go get some organic loose leaf nettle tea from your local health food store ….. the herb stinging nettle is an herb very high in vitamin K, which guards against excessive bleeding ….. if you menses are really heavy you would be losing a lot of iron thus creating the pain of a migraine….Nettle stimulates hair growth, improves kidney function and neutralizes uric acid, preventing its crystallization, aiding in its elimination from the system, thus relieving gout and arthritis. Nettle is useful as a tea for anemic children, due to its nutritive value. Nettle is also high in minerals such as iron, calcium, sulfur, sodium, copper, manganese, chromium, and silicon. Nettle is also used as an astringent to help stop bleeding and to reduce menses flow. Nettle is also a blood purifier and assists in lowering blood pressure.

    Go get yourself some of the loose leaf, organic variety of the herb from the health food store and put 1 – 2 teaspoons full into a teapot and top with hot water…. leave to brew for 10 – 15 minutes.

    Only organic will do as the commercial varieties have had so much of the goodness pulverised from them that they could never be of any therapeutic benefit …… besides, the organic loose leaf variety is so rich in its essential oils that you can refill the pot with hot water after you’ve finished one pot and reuse it…. so you really do get your moneys worth…… drink it with some raw honey to taste if it is too bland for you or squeeze lemon juice into it. One pot per day should suffice…. make sure you brush your teeth thoroughly 2 or 3 times per day also as the herb may stain your teeth a bit otherwise.

    Please also ensure that you still drink plenty of fresh filtered water as nettle is a natural diuretic

    Drink at least 8 glasses per day of fresh filtered water too as the herb nettle is a natural diuretic …. nothing replaces water ……. and cut back on dehydrating drinks such as coffee and tea, sodas and soft drinks and alcohol as hair growth is also dependant on proper hydration.

    Be well ……. <3
