Simple Natural Remedies To Stop Migraine Pain

MIGRAINE– A headache of varying intensity, often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.

Migraine headaches are sometimes preceded by warning symptoms. Triggers include hormonal changes, certain food and drink, stress and exercise.

Migraine headaches can cause throbbing in one particular area that can vary in intensity. Nausea and sensitivity to light and sound are also common symptoms.

Preventive and pain-relieving medication can help manage migraine headaches.

These are some simple natural remedies to stop Migraine Pain:

Find your triggers.

Migraines can be brought on by everything from aged cheese to red wine to weather (particularly hot or stormy days, or when the barometric pressure changes) to certain scents, like those of cleaning supplies and perfume. What’s more, the “migraine brain” is hypersensitive, so irregular sleep or eating, as well as episodes of stress, can be bad news. To pinpoint your triggers so you can try to avoid them, keep a diary or use a tracking app like “Migraine Buddy”. Tracking made me realize I often reach for an ice pack during thunderstorms, and once I knew that, my doctor prescribed an altitude-sickness medication that, to my surprise, eased my reaction.

Adjust your lifestyle.

A recent study found that maintaining good sleep, exercise, eating, and hydration habits reduced migraine frequency by about 50 percent, and in a Swedish study, 40 minutes of exercise three times a week proved as effective as prescription medication at reducing migraine frequency. What’s more, three large meta-analyses found that people had a similar improvement when they practised relaxation techniques, like meditation and deep breathing, as when they took a preventive drug. Try this easy trick to stay well-hydrated: carrying a to-go cup with a straw instead of a traditional water bottle. It turns out that one can drink more when there’s no cap to unscrew.

Add magnesium to your diet

Magnesium deficiency is linked to headaches and migraines. Studies show magnesium oxide supplementation helps prevent migraines with aura. It may also prevent menstrual-related migraines. You can get magnesium from foods that include:

sesame seeds
sunflower seeds
Brazil nuts
peanut butter

Cutting on Caffeine:

If you regularly consume large amounts of caffeine, you set yourself up for withdrawal headaches, which can stimulate your brain’s migraine centre and turn into migraines. Limit intake to 200 mg a day—that’s roughly one 8-ounce cup of coffee.

Apply lavender oil

Inhaling lavender essential oil may ease migraine pain. According to 2012 research, people who inhaled lavender oil during a migraine attack for 15 minutes experienced faster relief than those who inhaled a placebo. Lavender oil may be inhaled directly or applied diluted to the temples.

Drink grape juice

Though you probably haven’t sipped grape juice in years aside from “adult” grape juice, that is, it’s the perfect go-to remedy when a migraine strikes. Grapes are an excellent pain reliever. Take a drink of all-natural grape juice, or create your own at home to find relief. Blend fresh, ripe grapes with a bit of water, and you’ll drink your discomfort away.
