What is the best natural remedy for migrines?
I suffer from migrines almost daily and let's just say that being a female certain times of the month I get then even worse. I end up in bed for the whole day that's how bad it effect me. The doctors have tried every single medicine they use to treat for migrines and Im allregic to everyone of them. So Im searching for alternative treatments.
Dr. Teitalbaum just recently appeared on the Riki Lake Show, with natural supplements for migraines. He recommends Butterbur, B2, and magnesium, for the treatment of migraines. http://sherriegill.blogspot.com/2012/10 … raine.html
If it is hormone related, then balancing them might be an appropriate solution. Progesterone cream has been proven to help with balancing PMS, or peri menopause, along with Flaxseed, 1000-2000mg daily. An omega 3 fatty acid, necessary for balancing, and producing hormones.http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/menapause-the-midlife-meltdown During perimenopause, and pms, estrogen tends to dominate, progesterone is the other hormone that is in the mix. This cream is applied to the thin parts of the body, such as the wrist, and inner arms, 1-2 times daily. Usually derived from wild yam. If you cry at the drop of a hat, you need estrogen. If you are b****, then you need progesterone.
Holistic medicine is based on the premis of balance, not domination of any hormone. Plant phyto estrogens do just that, balance.
I have them also, a cup of valeriana tea with a teaspoon ginger works wonders. This works for me, hopefully it will work for you.
Best one I know of is feverfew, it's an herb, should use a standardized formula. My mother was suffering from migraines for years, until she started taking feverfew.
Artist101 had lots of good information. Hormone balance is very common and goes undiagnosed most of the time. Hormones play a crucial role in every aspect of our health, even though we don't necessarily realize how critical they are.
I've written several hubs about natural remedies for different problems. Natural remedies are my go-to. I wrote a hub called Hormones Gone Wild that will have some good information for you.
I knew a woman who was having a migraine and a friend put some of her progesterone cream on her and the migraine immediately went away (when you put things on your skin, it goes straight into your bloodstream). This natural fix will help you to fix the real problem and do so quickly and cost efficiently!
I wish you the best and hope that you'll find some relief soon for those migraines. Feel free to message me if you have any follow-up questions.

I don't know of ONE solution. My migraines came on after a fall that lead to a mild concussion. Prescriptions helped but so did vitamins B, D and plenty of sleep. Also, I avoided when at all possible loud sounds, bright false lighting and most of all loud/false drama from colleagues and peers.
Try magnesium, it is such an important mineral and many people are deficient. It is quite safe too compared to some of the other medication.
Also lots of vitamin B's. Again very safe, because they are water soluable and will come out in the urine if your body does not need them. However, most people can do with a bit more vitamin B.
Vitamin B are brain vitamins which I wrote about here:

though a lot of people refuse to try this, smoking a marijuana joint and having sex is one of the best ways to treat migraines. a friend of my ex's suffered from them for years. she was quite religious so even the though of smoking pot really bothered her. finally, after everything else failed, she talked it over with her husband and asked a friend to get her some pot. if you don't at least try this, please research it a bit, it isn't something i made up.
Hello Kat and happy Halloween. The drop in estrogen just before your period may contribute to headaches. Headaches are a common symptom of premenstrual syndrome, and many women with migraines report headaches before or during menstruation . It is probably hormonal. You can take bio-identical hormones that are made from plants, like soy and yams. They have some great studies if you want the info just email me and I will send you the research studies on them. You can get them at health food stores and department stores. They don't have the side effects of birth control pills or HRT. Ask your doctor about before you try it. Good luck to you and hope you feel better.
