Natural Remedies to Relieve Migraines




Of the nearly 30-million migraine sufferers in the world, nearly three-fourths are women. Doctors often prescribe strong drugs to help with the pain and management of migraines, but strong drugs come with their own negative side-effects. A migraine is more than just a bad headache. A migraine is a throbbing, recurring headache that often plagues just one side of the head. It is often accompanied by nausea and blurry vision. Those who suffer from migraines know that once you feel one coming on, you’d better rush home to a quiet, dark room to nurse or sleep it away. If you’re leery of constantly taking strong medication to alleviate the pain of migraines, consider trying some natural remedies.

Echinacea
While mostly known to help with common cold and influenza-type infections, echinacea has also proven to be helpful to alleviate migraines. Some say that the frequency of their migraines lessened when taking echinacea consistently, and others noted that they were able to take echinacea when they felt a migraine coming on to help relieve some of the pain.

More than just help with migraines, echinacea is a powerful supplement for general women’s health. It can help clear up urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast infections, gum disease, and even tonsillitis. Some have even reported help with chronic fatigue syndrome.

Drink Water and Eat Well
Drinking lots of water every day not only increases your metabolism by 30%, but it also helps ward off migraines. Many intense headaches are caused by dehydration. Drink at least 8 8-oz. glasses of water a day to re-hydrate your body. If you’re struggling to get enough water, figure out a way to make it more appealing to you. Many reports show that people are more likely to drink enough water if they drink through a straw, because it allows them to take larger sips with less work. If you like ice, be sure to fill your cup with ice to keep the water cold and refreshing. Consider adding something like lemon juice or flavored juice powders. Obviously plain water is the healthiest, but if you need a flavored juice powder to help you drink more, do what it takes. Omega-3 fish oil has also been reported to significantly help relieve migraines. Take supplements of this powerful natural remedy, and also be sure you’re eating enough fish, walnuts, and flaxseed.
