Natural Headache Remedies

Occasional headache is not a big deal to most of us. It’s unpleasant, but a couple of aspirin will fix the problem.  However, migraine headaches are another story. If you experienced it, you will find ways to stop it. Some people have frequent migraines, and nothing seems to help. There are a number of herbs, alone and in combinations that will provide you with effective results and prevent your migraine headache.

One of the most reliable and well researched migraine headache remedies is feverfew:

•    An herb with a proven clinical track record and widely used in Europe to prevent migraine attacks.
•    The active constituent is effective against chemicals in the brain which dilate blood vessels and cause migraines.
•    Like many herbs, its effectiveness is slow. It must be used for a couple of months before you feel the effects. Please note that feverfew is for prevention. It will not help once the attack is already underway.

Many independent clinical studies concluded that daily use of feverfew as a migraine headache remedy indeed prevent migraine attacks. In the double-blind studies there were patients who had used feverfew to prevent migraine attacks for years. Patients who were given a placebo in place of their regular dose of feverfew experienced a recurrence of migraine attacks, suffering frequent and severe migraines. Patients who took regular dose of feverfew remained migraine free for six months, the period of testing. Feverfew is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers.

Another natural migraine headache remedy is ginger tea:

•    Suited to ongoing migraines located in the front of the head.
•    When taken at the onset of an attack, ginger tea will provide relief in as little as 30 minutes.
•    Continued use of ginger tea, taken six times daily will result in fewer and less severe attacks.
•    Ginger tea is also fragrant and tasty!

Kava Kava is also an effective migraine remedy. Native to the South Pacific, it has been used for centuries for its relaxing properties, useful in cases of stress related migraines.
