What are the home remedies for migraine attack and headache?
Here is the hub i wrote about it. I hope it helps! http://mikesyrsutton.hubpages.com/hub/N … orHEADACHE
Whenever I have migraine or just a plain headache, I eat banana, drink plenty of water, and if at all possible I sleep. Don't eat processed meat and nuts (for the time being) because it will trigger more pain.
Lots of intake of fluid and a light stomach is one way to control it. In Indian market you will get a mix of three dried crushed fruits (or even only Amla, or Indian Gooseberry) called "Trifala". Soak overnight a few crushed pieces in a glass of water, and drink the pale brown fluid next morning. If you drink this for a few months this will help improve the condition. And avoid keeping a fast or skipping breakfast. This is a life-style regime, that I have found to work.
My Mum takes a teaspoon of brandy, with a teaspoon of sugar or honey, in hot water ~ and it usually works.
A consultant I once met, who had been doing research on migraine, found that taking folic acid supplements prevented attacks.
For headache, I would always place a wet cloth on my forehead and press gently. This gives a little relief from the ache. Rubbing with Vicks or Amrutanjan also works.
Migraine attack is related with head and the pain would be severe in this case. Massaging the scalp is the best way of preventing this disease. Peppermint and ginger are known to have anti-inflammatory properties and they can relax you from the stress. Taking these in mild quantities regularly can help stop the attack of migraine and headache.
I get migraines often! The only remedy for me is sleep, and a lot of it, also to avoid bright lights, so close your curtains, turn off your tv and get rest, avoid fast motions, don't stand up too quickly, don't move your eyes around too quickly either.
I get migraines regularly and unfortunately I have not found anything that works either to stop them once they start or to prevent them from happening at all.
The doctor can give you meds to supress them and reduce the pain but that may only cause more harm in the long run.
I take clothe and warm water and place it in my head.. I try not to think.. Eat healthy
I will recommend Yoga.. It helps to an extent
Add few drops of lavender oil in water. Keep your hands in this water atleast 5-10 minutesyou will get relief from Migrane
There are many reasons of migraine & different ways to cure migraine.
Some of Ayurveda tips to control migraine is to apply fresh ground sandalwood to the forehead, let it dry by itself & then wash it with warm water.
Doing surya pranam before sunrise also effects it.
If we look for vedic astrology then it is due to "surya". Surya remedies also cures migraine because surya & lagnesh effects the head of a human.
Hope it can help you.
Did you try a cup of coffee? Caffeine is supposed to open up the constricting blood vessels in the brain that cause a headache. Don't overdue it. That will have the opposite affect.
Hi shampa sadhya here is a hub I put together recently, every single person I tried this method on, it worked. http://inspired-to-write.hubpages.com/h … r-Headache
Treatments of Migraine is mainly medical. But you can reduce your migraine attacks by avoiding some foods such as processed meat, citrus, caffeinated beverages as tea and coffee, old cheese and Alcohol. Stress also may worsen your migraine. Some medication such as vasodilators also may induce migraine attack.
To help keep them away, I take a supplement called feverfew daily. Drink lots of water! A cold compress on the head, no bright lights, low stress and rest. They say caffiene causes headaches, but when I get a migraine, I find that a can of red bull kicks it (bad advice I know). They also say lavender helps, but I disagree from personal experience... it may help you though :-).
since i was a young girl i have been plagued by migraines. after i was at my wits end about 1995 i told my doctor i could not live like this any more...trapped in the sea of pain...and i was put on inderal which considerably lessened their frequency. i was weaned off it about 2 years ago. i only have them infrequently now.
the best home remedy for me involving no drugs, is a dark room, and a bag of ice applied to my head.
if i have a migraine syndrome, flashing lights, and squiggles in front of my eyes, i drink strong coffee or a soft drink full of caffeine and take an over the counter tablet for migraines.
I use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) works every time. EFT is like acupuncture without the needles I did a hub about it.
Lots of water, over the counter pain meds, and ice pack on my forehead/neck (depending upon where the pain is) and sleep if I can.
Thanks for such a huge response to the above question. I regularly suffer from migraine attack as well as plain headache. My experience is very similar to Anishpat.
I am tired of taking paracetamol as well as no home remedy worked for me till now. Taking rest in a dark place is not feasible every time either you are at home or at workplace. Thus, it makes the attack much more grave. Let's hope some remedy works without any side effect.
I have heard from some people that having oil bath (head bath) early morning can lessen the possibility of getting migraine headache..avoiding over exposure to sunlight may also help. Further you should avoid stress.
It is now believed that the dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system is the primary root cause of migraines and dilation of blood vessels is a result of this dysfunction. So anything that soothes the autonomic nervous system will benefit migraines. However, as a migraineur myself I have found that deep breathing exercises and mindfulness meditation are the two most beneficial and if you learn how to do it accurately, you can actually turn off the migraine completely.
On the other hand, prevention of a migraine is always the best practice, and this is accomplished most effectively by becoming aware of your primary triggers and avoiding them. Some of the most common triggers include food and environmental sensitivities, monosodium glutamate, changes in weather, dehydration, exercising too strenuously, cigarette smoke, hormone imbalances, caffeine, skipping a meal (which causes low blood sugar), artificial sweeteners like aspartame and pickled or fermented foods.
