Feverfew Migraine Relief

Feverfew is claimed to cure migraines.

Everyone wants to know what causes migraines, and how they can be cured. Because migraines are such a hot topic, there will often be a large number of people who claim that this or that is the end-all cure for migraines. Recently, I was made aware of an herb that supposedly treats migraines. This herb is called feverfew, and it has been claimed to be a fix for migraines. Feverfew is used as a preventative for migraines, and it was used to treat fevers in the past, which is why it is named "feverfew."

So does feverfew actually work when it comes to migraine relief? Well, unfortunately, the jury is still out on whether or not it is effective in preventing migraines. There have been several studies done about feverfew's role in migraine relief. These studies were largely inconclusive, because the scientific controls were not as tight as they should have been. Regardless of that fact, the studies still generally showed that feverfew was effective in treating migraines, and preventing them. There have also been studies with tighter controls for variables, and these studies have also shown that there is a possibility that feverfew will be effective in treating and preventing migraines. So does it work? Science does not know for sure yet, but with the way things are, science seems to lean towards "likely yes."

Whether or not feverfew is effective towards treating migraines and preventing their symptoms is still up for debate, but there are many places that you can buy feverfew if you are still curious, and you want to try it yourself. I would recommend looking online, and finding internet stores that will sell feverfew to you. I always recommend trying something yourself if you are unsure about its effectiveness. I can promise you that it will be more effective in treating migraines than caffeine is! I am not sure whether or not feverfew is reported to be effective in treating abdominal migraines or optical migraines, also known as silent migraines, but it is certainly worth a shot.

Whether or not you end up buying feverfew, I would still recommend researching the common migraine triggers, so that you can avoid as many migraines as possible. Best of luck to you and your migraine solution!

      Thanks! I certainly hope that people are able to find relief from migraines. I know several people who suffer, and it's certainly not fun.

      Herbal remedies have been around for centuries, and are often overlooked by many as primitive. Your article offers an alternative to meds that might ease a migraine, but bother the stomach. I have danced horizontally with migraines a few times and would be glad to let feverfew cut in. great hub~~~MFB III
