    Natural remedies for migraines caused by stress?

    I've been getting migraines on an almost daily basis recently. A lot of it is due to stress, but I'm looking for a natural remedy that might help. I'm figuring all these codeine-based painkillers can't be all that good for me. Any suggestions?

    magnesium!! best in the citrate form. I also like the accupressure pillows. They hurt at first, but they really are fantastic. Good luck!

    To help relax and relieve tension try Lavender Essential Oil as well.  Use a lavender pillow to lie on or put a few drops in a warm bath and release the tension in your body.

      I love lavender essential oil, and use it often. I've heard that it can be helpful if massaged into pulse points, but it's never really gotten me results that way...maybe it should be combined with other oils for that type of application?

    Years ago, when I was having repeated stress-related headaches, I divorced my wife, and that took care of the matter......

      LOL I'm glad that worked out for you ackman1465.  I read your response just now and my partner asked why I was chuckling, so I told him.  He agrees by the way. He said 'remove whatever causes the stress and the headaches will disappear too.'

    The nutrient, or vitamin is B-complex. "The" stress vitamin. One of the symptoms of B-12 deficiency, is headache, among other symptoms. Sublingual, under the tongue, is best, as this is straight into the blood stream. Codeine painkillers rob our bodies of this vital nutrient.

      Also avoid tyramine containing foods, chocolate, cheese, and chicken.Known to trigger migraine. Other triggers are hormone imbalance, and low blood sugar. As well as a Magnesium deficiency 600 mg for 12 weeks, research says 85% found relief in 15min.
