MIGRAINE:

Migraine is a primary headache of varying intensity, often accompanied by sensory warning signs such as nausea, blind spots, tingling in the arms and legs, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. The pain that migraine brings can last for hours sometimes even for days. Migraine is an inherited tendency to have headaches with sensory disturbance. Migraine is an instability in the way the brain deals with incoming sensory information and that instability can become influenced by physiological changes like sleep, exercise and hunger.

  • Cinnamon: cinnamon is a miracle spice that will effectively treat migraine. Grind some cinnamon sticks into powder and some water to make a thick paste. Apply it on your forehead and lie down for half an hour. Then wash it off with lukewarm water.
  • Ice pack: using an ice pack is perhaps the most popular home remedy to get rid of migraine headaches and tension.
  • Peppermint: Simply drink peppermint tea sweetened with honey to get an immediate relief from migraine.
  • Basil: Basil leaves is a strong scented herb which is used for natural headache treatment. Put 3 to 4 fresh basil leaves in a cup of boiling water and let it simmer. Add a little honey and sip the tea slowly. Also, you can chew basil leaves or inhale steam after boiling basil in a pot of water.
  • Massage : Massaging the head helps ease migraine headaches as it blocks pain signals sent to the brain. It also boosts serotonin activity and stimulates certain serotonin receptors, thereby reducing the symptoms as well as frequency of migraines.
  • Coffee: A cup of strong coffee can help reduce migraine headache symptoms. It contains caffeine that restricts blood vessels and blocks certain receptors that could be causing the migraine.

To increase the effectiveness, add a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice as it counteracts the effects of acidic diets that contribute to cyclic headaches.

Warning: Caffeine may trigger migraines in some people. Also, too much caffeine may worsen your headache or cause a rebound headache.

In addition to these remedies, try muscle relaxation exercises and relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation. Plus, get enough sleep, eat a diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein, avoid foods that trigger your migraine attacks and drink plenty of water.
