Easing Migraine Pain Naturally For Better Health And To Lower Medical Claims.

Three out of four of the nearly 30 million Americans who suffer from migraines are women.  The reason may have to do with a woman’s menstrual cycle, but triggers can also include alcohol, weather changes, stress, dehydration, food and lack of sleep.

 

An estimated 40%-60% of migraine attacks are preceded by premonitory (warning) symptoms lasting hours to days. The symptoms may include irritability, fatigue, sleepiness, depression, and cravings for sweet or salty foods. 

 

Migraine headaches usually are described as an intense, throbbing or pounding pain that involves one temple. (Sometimes the pain is located in the forehead, around the eye, or at the back of the head).  Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, facial pallor, cold hands, cold feet, and sensitivity to light and sound commonly accompany migraine headaches.  As a result of this sensitivity to light and sound, migraine sufferers usually prefer to lie in a quiet, dark room during an attack. A typical attack lasts between 4 and 72 hours.  Some describe a hung-over feeling with muscle aches.

 

If you are one of millions to suffer from migraine headaches you know how debilitating and frustrating they can be.  Here are a few at home therapies to help deal with a migraine attack.

  • Water – Drinking plenty of water since dehydration is a major cause of headaches.

 

  • Caffeine – Drinking caffeine can help or hinder a headache.  Caffeine can restrict blood vessels, it can lessen pain, it’s a constituent of some pain over-the-counter pain medicines, but it can also trigger headaches for some people.

 

  • Fish Oil – Enthusiasts claim that fish oil reduces inflammation and works by restricting the blood vessels in your temples.

 

  • Peppermint Oil – Some claim rubbing peppermint oil on the areas of your head that hurt such as the temples can ease the pain.

 

  • Ginger – It works the same way that aspirin does by blocking prostaglandins.  At the beginning signs of a migraine, taking a ½ to 1 tsp of ginger in warm or room temperature water, can greatly reduce or even eliminate the pain.  

 

  • Cold compress – Ice or cold therapy makes your blood vessels constrict and calms inflammation. This can reduce the pressure in your head, easing your pain.

 

These may not work for all but are worth a try to eliminate or ease the debilitating pain of a migraine headache using natural remedies.
