How to Reduce the Intensity of Migraines with Home Remedies!

Has this ever happened to you? You’re all geared up to have a bright, sunny day and suddenly your head decides to make like a banana and split, thus ruining your day. It may just be an ordinary headache, but if you find that you routinely suffer from such headaches then a visit to your physician is in order. Chances are that you may be suffering from migraine.

There are a number of types of headaches of which migraine is one. There are also various types of migraine and they can last from 4 hours up to as long as 72 hours. The blinding headaches referred to as migraines are more common than you would think. But half of the sufferers are either undiagnosed, or worse, misdiagnosed. A migraine is typically a throbbing, one-sided, disabling pain, more common in the women than in men. It is worse than an ordinary headache or a tension headache since it is almost always associated with other symptoms like nausea or blurred vision.

Most people view migraines as unavoidable and either rely on paracetamol to ease the pain, or they simply wait for it to subside. But pills are not always as helpful as certain household cures. Migraine can be cured, or at least greatly reduced by a number of simple home remedies.

The next time you suffer from a migraine headache, rubbing some aromatic oils on your head, (but not on your temples) can help. Peppermint, lavender, sandalwood and eucalyptus scents are soothing and help you to relax. Massaging oil into the base of the skull is also comforting.

Some people like to take a relaxing shower when they feel a migraine headache coming on. You can also use a wet towel wrapped around some ice. Put it on your head and eyes. Alternatively, a hot compress, using a steaming hot and wet towel, is also relieving.

One technique that works to alleviate pain in migraines is biofeedback. This method requires a little practice. You need to visualize the blood flow in your head and direct it to other parts of your body, such as your hand. Research has shown that this practice can be quite effective for migraines.

Dietary considerations are a part of the cure for migraine. Sip some herbal tea, like ginger tea to take the edge off the headache. Grape juice is another uncommon, yet effective, cure for migraine headaches. Other fruit and vegetable juices (like carrots and beets) are also potent remedies. At times dehydration may trigger a migraine attack so make sure your body is well hydrated at all times. Salt consumption in the form of chips or a chilled glass of salty lemonade can lead to much relief.

In addition to these home remedies, you need to exercise regularly and take long walks routinely, as these steps reduce the occurrence of migraines in some people. Taking a brisk walk during the migraine attack eases the pain.

Research has unveiled a number of triggers for migraine attacks such as bad weather, hormones, caffeine, and alcohol and, the oft-incriminated, stress. Migraine attacks follow idiosyncratic patterns so that the causes are different for different people. You should monitor your own patterns and uncover potential triggers. Once the cause of the headaches has been discovered, preventing it will be easier. You will be able to go out in the world and finally enjoy a migraine-free life.

    certainly like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the reality however I’ll certainly come again again.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
