Natural Migraine Relief

1. Find out what foods trigger your migraines.

Common triggers are; Cheese (dairy), MSG (monosodium glutamate), Chemical additives and preservatives, onions, Alcohol, sugar, eggs, and gluten. One of the biggest triggers is caffeine! Yes, that sounds unreal since caffeine can provide relief but it works both ways. If you get migraines, I would eliminate all caffeine first. Don’t go cold turkey, take 2-4 weeks and wean yourself off to avoid withdrawal headaches.

2. Stay hydrated. Drink half of your body weight in ounces per day of water. More if you exercise.

3.Exercise regularly. Regular exercise promotes healthy circulation and helps to alleviate depression and anxiety. You’ll sleep better at night too.

4. Get enough sleep. We need 6-9 hours every night.

5. Learn to cope with stress in a healthy manner. We can’t eliminate all stressors in our lives but we can learn to manage them. Stress can trigger a migraine.

6. Eat healthy and frequently. Small meals throughout the day are very beneficial for migraine sufferers. Don’t skip breakfast! Eliminate processed and fast food.

7. Stop using synthetic perfumes and fragrances on your person and in your home.

8. For women: Find a qualified holistic practitioner and work to get your hormones in balance and have your thyroid checked.

If you do experience a migraine, an ice pack wrapped in towel and placed under you neck will help with pain relief. You can also place it directly on the pain site. I’ve found Chiropractic care to be helpful. Therapeutic grade essential oils have helped me tremendously. Make sure you only use therapeutic grade oils since most that are sold as “pure” really aren’t and are not to used directly on your skin.
I hope as you try these tips you find relief and healing. Migraines are a terrible ailment to have. Pass on the knowledge!
