  • Hello,

    Usually, the causes of migraine ate genetic, hormonal or the four Cs – caffeine, chocolate, citrus fruits and cheese. Weather and stress may cause it in certain cases.

    Herbal and homeopathic remedies can offer an effective natural solution and can be of assistance in alleviating the painful and discomforting symptoms of a migraine. Herbs such as Silybum marianus (Milk Thistle), Passiflora Incarnata and Hypericum perforatum (also known as St. John’s Wort) can be extremely beneficial in helping to soothe the recurrence of pounding headaches. In addition, studies have suggested that the herb Feverfew, when used regularly, can help to eliminate or greatly reduce the frequency and severity of headaches and migraines.

    In taking a holistic view of your health, you can address many factors that contribute to optimal physical, mental and emotional well-being. Natural and herbal remedies can be used to help address the root causes of the ailment and not just the symptoms.

    A hot compress on the neck and a cold one on the forehead give some relief. Avoid hot one on the neck if it creates more trouble.

    No cocktails and less smoking. Smoking inside a car with windows down is a strict no.

    Hope it helped

    I dont know how true it is but I read somewhere that if you eat two gingersnaps and take a hot bath in dim lighting it should help alot. Even if its not 100% it couldnt hurt to give it a try.

    The most widely used herb to treat and prevent migraine headaches is Feverfew. You can get it in capsules or in a tincture. You cannot take it if you are pregnant or nursing, however.

    Food Therapy:
    "A lot of migraines are food related ," says Michael A. Klaper, M.D., a nutritional medicine specialist in Pompano Beach, Florida, and director of the Institute of Nutritional Education and Research. His solution: Try to stick with a vegetarian’s diet without food additives such as monosodium glutamate, artificial sweeteners and food colorings. If you get rid of the trigger foods, processed foods and synthetic additives, you can often end migraines." Dr. Klaper recommends avoiding red wines, tea, unrefined cider and other beverages that contain tannin, another major trigger. Also, he says, try to eat foods high in magnesium content, such as spinach and other dark leafy vegetables, whole grains, cashews and soybean. Magnesium relaxes muscles in the wall of blood vessels, including those running to the brain, which may help preventmigrainess, says Dr. Klaper.

    Herbal Therapy:
    Scientific studies show that the herb feverfew can reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches, says Varro E. Tyler, P.h.D.., professor of pharmacognosy at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. That’s because parthenolide, the plant’s active ingredient, inhibits the brain chemicals that dilate blood vessels and cause a migraine, he explains.
    Feverfew will work effectively only if you take it every day-not just when you get a migraine-and only if you take enough of it, according to Dr. Tyler. This because feverfew functions is mainly preventive, so it won’t help much once you already have a migraine, he explains. The recommended dosage is a daily supplement of 125 milligrams, he says, and the supplement must contain at least 0.2 percent pathenolide. Check the labels on
    feverfew products to make sure the product you choose contain pathenolide and follow the dosage recommendations on the label, he adds.Fever supplements are available in most health food stores.
