3 Secret Natural Home Remedies for Migraine
Relief- sounds like a long lost dream right? While most of you obviously tried reading between the lines, here we are talking about the actual one, Relief from the pain of migraine. According to the National Headache Foundation (yes, there is one), women are three times more likely to get a migraine than men, and it is my personal opinion that men are all the time likely to cause it.
A migraine is a kind of headache followed by nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, smell and sound, and sometimes visual changes. It seems very convenient to just pop an Advil whenever you get a headache but let’s face it, most of the time it is not enough and not to mention the adverse effects of it on your liver.
Here are three natural remedies which some people claim that works better than medication:
Almost half of the population around the globe is addicted to a certain form of caffeine and if they do not get their daily dose of it, they are most likely to get a migraine. The best and safest remedy to try whenever you have a migraine is consuming small amounts of caffeine in intervals to soothe the pain. While this is a time-consuming treatment, patients believe that it has helped them reduce the severity of the headache to a minimum.
A study in 2012 closely examined 40 patients of migraine and found out that the PC6 acupoint (located three fingers up from the base of your wrist inside the arm) was proved to be effective in soothing migraine headache with nausea and vomiting.
Another popular acupoint is the L1-4 point located between the space of the thumb and pointer finger). Massaging this point for five minutes may relieve migraine headaches.
There’s a reason why grandmas and moms are all rave about this magical ingredient. Ginger powder is considered to be a common migraine drug over the years. The best thing about ginger treatment is that it doesn't have any side effects aside from an existing allergy. It is also said to be comparable to the famous Sumatriptan (an oral tablet with Imitrex).
Lastly, it is essential to keep a journal and closely monitor what triggers your migraine headache and what better works for you. Every person has a different capacity and reaction hence, never consume any drug without a prescription. All of the mentioned above remedies have fortunately no side effects and any person can try them out just for the sake of it.
