Home Remedies For Migraine Headaches

If you suffer from migraines, sometimes the only thing you can do to relieve the throbbing pain, double vision and nausea is to lie down in a dark, quiet room.

To prevent the onset of an attack, it helps to eat a healthy diet, avoid caffeine and get enough sleep. These remedies may provide some additional relief.

CAUTION: Chronic migraine sufferers should seek medical attention. You may need medication to treat your headaches.

Natural home remedies

  • Dip a few cabbage leaves in boiling hot water to make them soft. As soon as they're cool enough, place one or two thickness on your forehead and on the back of your neck. Secure them in place with a scarf or bandage. Then relax as the cabbage draws out the pain.
  • Boil two Spanish onions. Eat one and mash the other for a poultice. Then place the poultice on your forehead.
  • The crusts of lemon have also been found beneficial in the treatment of migraine. These crusts should be included into a fine paste in a mortar. The paste should be applied, it plaster on the forehead. It will provide great relief.

Anti-Migraine Massage

  • Apply pressure to the palm of one hand with the thumb of the other hand. Then reverse the order. If you feel a tenderness in either palm, concentrate the massage on that area. Keep up the firm pressure and massage for 10 minutes-five minutes on each hand.
  • We heard about a woman who would eat a tablespoon of honey the second she felt a migraine coming on. If the headache wasn't gone within a half hour, she'd take another tablespoon of honey with three glasses of water and that would do it.
  • Niacin, when taken at the first sign of a migraine, has been known to prevent a full­blown, torturous headache.

To prevent or get rid of a headache, take anywhere from 50 to 100 mg at a time. The higher the dosage, the stronger the side effects. For most people, the side effects are felt when they take 100 mg or more. Both of us get the "niacin flush" that makes us look like we've been in the sun too long. It's usually accompanied by itching and/or tingling. It lasts about 15 minutes and is not harmful.

Niacinamide is said to be as effective as niacin, but without the side effects. Both are available at vitamin and health food stores.

WARNING: Check with your physician before taking niacin. It may interfere with some anti-diabetes drugs.

  • Bathe your feet in a basin or two plastic shoe boxes filled with very strong, hot, black coffee. Some medical professionals recommend drinking a cup or two of coffee as well. Or, for the same effectiveness, but with less caffeine, drink yerba mate, also called Paraguay tea (available at health food stores).

Head to the Salon

  • Ready for this one? Sit under a hair dryer. The heat and high-pitched hum of the dryer may relax the tension that brought on the headache.

According to one physician, the dryer brings relief to two-thirds of the migraine sufferers who try it. Your local beauty salon will probably be happy to accommodate you as long as you don't have a headache during their busy time.

WARNING: If you have chemical sensitivities, stay out of a hair salon. It could make your headache worse.

  • Open a jar of strong mustard and slowly inhale the fumes several times. This has been known to help relieve a migraine.
  • Some people have migraines without having severe headaches. Instead, they are troubled by impaired vision-spots in front of their eyes or seeing double. We heard about a simple remedy for this-chew a handful of raisins. Chew them thoroughly before swallowing.
  • You never know which remedy is going to work best until you try it. Have you tried squatting in eight inches of hot water (in your bathtub, of course) for 20 minutes?
