Few tips for treating and preventing migraine naturally

Updated: Jul 1



Acupuncture


An extensive 2012 review looked at studies that evaluated the effectiveness of acupuncture for treating migraine and other conditions. The study concluded that acupuncture is an effective treatment choice for people with migraine headaches.


According to the theory of acupuncture an essential life energy called qi (pronounced “chee”) flows through the body along invisible channels called meridians. When the flow of this energy is blocked or out of balance, illness or pain results. Many acupuncture points connect to the meridians. Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that stimulating those points with needles, heat or pressure will correct the flow of qi, increase blood circulation, alleviate pain, relax muscles.


Finding a licensed practitioner is key.



Acupressure


Acupressure therapy may help relieve some migraine symptoms. Acupressure involves applying pressure to specific parts of the body. Stimulating these points aims to release muscle tension and alleviate pain.

One popular pressure point is the LI-4 point in the space between the base of the left thumb and the index finger.


Applying firm, but not painful, circular pressure to the LI-4 point using the opposite hand for 5 minutes may relieve headache pain.



Compresses



Some people find that laying cool or warm compresses on their heads can be soothing and help reduce migraine pain.





Diet changes



Certain foods may trigger migraine episodes, including: processed foods, red win ,alcohol, chocolate, caffeine.

Being aware of what might be triggering migraine is critical. Some people use a food diary or migraine journal to keep track of potential triggers.


Changing the diet or eating patterns to avoid triggers may help prevent episodes in the future.



Essential oils


Essential oils are common ingredients in natural remedies and some cleaning products.

Lavender is an essential oil that many believe can relieve stress, anxiety, and headaches.

It is important to note that for people who have asthma or are pregnant, essential oils can pose a risk. Please consult a doctor before using them.



Herbal supplements


Herbal supplements, such as Butterbur and feverfew are two herbal supplements that may be helpful in reducing migraine pain and the frequency of episodes.



Please Note: There are some risks involved, including severe ones. Speak to our Specialist Herbalist Dr Yael Tusk DACM ( Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine) : 052-768-4438



Magnesium

A deficiency of the essential mineral magnesium may trigger migraine including migraine aura and menstrual migraine.

Research has found that taking supplementary magnesium may help reduce the frequency of episodes for some people. However, speak with a doctor before taking this supplement, particularly if other health issues are present.



Massage


Massaging the muscles in the neck and shoulders may help relieve tension and alleviate migraine pain. Massage, in general, reduces stress.

Reflexology


Many people find relief from reflexology treatments, and research suggests that it is effective for migraines.

The points that correspond with your head, face, and neck, the spots that hurt during a migraine, are all on the tips of your feet!!

Rest


Lack of sleep or too much sleep may trigger migraine headaches.

Getting 7–9 hours of restful sleep each night can help reduce stress and may help prevent migraine episodes. It is also essential to make time to relax and unwind before bed.




Stay hydrated



Even minor dehydration can be a migraine and headache trigger. A person can avoid this by drinking enough water, or a re-hydration solution, every day. Doing so moderately and having a healthy diet can usually help a person stay hydrated.





Stress management


Stress is a common trigger for migraine episodes. It may even create a cycle, in which migraine pain worsens the stress, which then triggers another migraine. Whenever possible, it is best to limit situations that can lead to stress. Finding outlets such as keeping a journal, exercise, and meditation may help. Other stress relief strategies might include taking a warm bath, listening to music, or practicing breathing technique.
