Top 5 Natural Remedies for Migraines

If you suffer from migraines, you know they can cause excruciating pain, visual disturbances and nausea.

They can also be so debilitating that all you are able to do is curl up in a darkened room in complete silence. But you don’t always need a prescription to treat migraines. Here are some ways you can find relief without medication:

  1. Change your diet. Some foods and/or alcohol, artificial sweeteners, cheese, chocolate, MSG and processed meats/foods are some of the most common causes of migraines. The best way to determine if foods trigger your migraines is by keeping a food journal. Take notes of what foods you ate when a migraine came on, and then eliminate these foods one at a time to see if your migraines improve.
  2. Try acupuncture. Independent studies suggest that acupuncture as a complementary therapy can ease migraine pain and may reduce the number of headaches you have.
  3. Breathe. Stress can often trigger a migraine, so try relaxation and meditation techniques, including deep breathing. With practice, you may soon be able to head off a migraine before it starts.
  4. Get a massage. A 2006 study found massage therapy reduced the number of headaches people experienced (though it has no benefit once a migraine has started). Massage can also reduce stress, which is a known migraine trigger.
  5. Take a supplement. Some research suggests that vitamin B2 may reduce the frequency of migraines. Talk to your health-care provider before starting a supplement regimen.
