Natural Migraine Remedies and Prevention Strategies

I have been a migraine sufferer for as long as I can remember.

Mine always start over my left eye and then wrap over the top of my head. What starts as a dull pain turns into an intense throbbing. My stomach churns. Nausea sets in. The pressure over my eye becomes unbearable. All I want to do is go and lie in a quiet, dark room and put pressure on my forehead to alleviate the pain behind my eye.

I get hormone linked migraines around the time of my period as well as food triggered migraines. I have to be especially careful about eating soups when I go out as sometimes the broth that they are made with can contain MSG. Sometimes it’s salad dressing. I still haven’t totally discovered all of the triggers yet so sometimes a migraine sneaks up on me out of nowhere. I eat something and then within 20 minutes, like clockwork, BAM! I am down for the count with a raging migraine.

Do you get them? Not all people are headache sufferers but if you do get them you definitely understand what I am talking about.

I am someone who does not like to take medicine unless absolutely necessary. I have put together a list of natural migraine remedies and prevention strategies that can help with migraines.

  • Acupressure-There are pressure points on the body where pressure can be applied to help alleviate headache pain. This can be doen during a massage.
  • Stress Prevention-Exercise, journaling, yoga and meditation can help you to alleviate stress which can be a cause of migraines.
  • Change your diet-This is a tricky one as it can be hard to identify specific migraine triggers but if you can avoid them you are winning!
  • Essential Oils-inhaling certain essential oils such as Lavender oil can help to reduce migraine pain.
  • Take your B Vitamins-B Vitamins may be useful in reduction of migraines.
  • Drink enough water-Dehydration can be a migraine cause
  • Magnesium-Magnesium supplements are thought to reduce migraines and you can also eat more magnesium rich foods.
  • Acupuncture-This alternative medicine can be used to help migraine sufferers.
  • Sleep-Lack of adequate sleep can affect whether or not you get a migraine so it is always important to take the time to get the rest that you need.
