Migraines are not the casual headaches that last for a very short period. If you have been a victim of migraine, you would have experienced a pounding pain, sensitivity to light or sound and nausea. When a migraine strikes, you would basically do anything to get rid of it. Not many people are aware of the different natural remedies that are a great way to reduce the migraine symptoms. This blog will widely enunciate the different home remedies that can help in reducing the pain and other drastic effects of this condition.  P.S – They are completely drug-free!

Avoid migraine triggers

Your diet plays a very important role in preventing migraine. Many food items are capable of triggering this condition. Some of them include:

  • Chocolate
  • Food that contains nitrate component – deli meats, hot dogs, sausage and bacon
  • Food items that contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), a component that is typically used to enhance flavours
  • Food that has extreme temperature levels such as ice cream, iced drinks, slushes etc
  • Pickled food
  • Alcohol (especially red wine)

If by chance, you may have consumed any of the above food items or drinks, make sure to consume a small amount of caffeine as this might help in easing the pain.

Apply lavender oil

Inhaling lavender essential oil can be a great relief for migraine victims. According to a research conducted in 2012 where a set of people were asked to inhale lavender oil versus some who were asked to inhale placebo, the former group experienced a greater and a faster relief compared to the latter. It is generally recommended to apply diluted lavender oil to the temples or inhale it directly for about 15 minutes.

Try acupressure

Acupressure is deemed as a practice of applying pressure with fingers or hands on specific points in the body that will gradually create a sense of relief. According to the Systematic Review Trusted Source in 2014, acupressure is a credible alternative therapy that can help people relieve themselves from chronic headaches and other extreme conditions. At times, this can also help in eliminating any migraine-related nausea.

Sign up for yoga

Yoga generally deals with breathing, meditation and body postures in order to promote a healthy lifestyle and well-being. Research reveals that yoga can help in reducing the frequency, duration and the intensity of migraine. It can also help in improving anxiety, release tension in migraine-trigger areas and develop overall vascular health.
