This article is to provide what I believe to be the best migraine treatment and natural remedy.
For migraine sufferers there can be no worse time than when those personally identified tell tale signs appear…the floaters in the eyes, the diagonal zig zags, the pressure in the frontal lobes etc.
Most sufferers have identifiers but unfortunately by the time these are seen, felt or sensed it’s already to late and we know the migraine is on its way.
In this article we look at the best migraine treatment and natural remedy that if followed on a regular basis or as soon as identifiers are present can offer massive relief and over time prevent those migraines happening at all.
Best Migraine Treatment
For many people the only treatments used are pharmaceuticals. However there are many natural and healthy treatment alternatives that show, through research, to be equally as effective if not more effective than medications. Using natural products often has a much better success rate and far fewer health risks and various treatments include herbs, supplements, acupuncture, reflexology and aromatherapy.
For me, undoubtedly the best migraine treatment and natural remedy is a combination therapy of herbs, hydrotherapy, acupressure and aromatherapy.
I encourage you all to try this natural remedy and see for your self the benefits. I encourage you use this remedy as a prevention tool rather than wait for the tell tale signs. Our best migraine treatment if used regularly will ease suffering and over time prevent those migraines from making an appearance.
As with any holistic and natural remedy always consult your doctor or health practitioner if you are taking any pharmaceuticals or have previously identified health concerns. Natural products are safe but put your mind at rest by consulting initially.
Best Migraine Treatment and Natural Remedy Guide
Step 1: Herbal Prevention
Source 2 different herb supplements from your natural health provider.
It is important to note that neither of these herbs will stop a migraine once developed. They should be taken regularly for a period of 2-3 months OR until you have a migraine free period. Ideally continue taking these herbal supplements daily and ongoing.
Feverfew: Best Migraine Treatment
In Feverfew the active ingredient is called parthenolide. Parthenolide aides in inhibiting chemical reactions in the brain that cause the blood vessels to overdilate. This means Feverfew prevents dilation which is the cause of the serious throbbing associated with migraines.
Butterbur: Best Migraine Treatment
Butterbur extract has been used for centuries and can safely be taken daily as a preventative. Regular use of Butterbur has shown to effectively reduce the number of attacks and severity of migraines. Butterbur has both antispasmodic effects and anti-inflammatory properties which in combination with Feverfew gives a great natural and healthy medicinal combination for easing tension and preventing migraine onset.
Step 2: Hydrotherapy/Acupressure
These techniques can be used as you feel the onset or during a migraine attack.
Hydrotherapy: Best Migraine Treatment
This is very easy to do and amazingly effective – Hydrotherapy Contrast Showers.
First take a shower with the water as hot as you can stand (without being burnt!) for two-three minutes. Hot water increases your flow of blood to the skin.
Then change the shower to cold water, again as cold as you can take it. This sends the blood to your core. Stay in cold water for two-three minutes.
Alternate this hot and cold hydrotherapy for twenty minutes. This techniques increases your blood flow and therefore assists circulation. During blood circulation you are bringing nutrients to organs and eliminating toxins from the body.
If a hot and cold shower regime is not your thing then you can also sit with your feet in a bucket of very cold water and place a hot compress or towel on the back of your neck. This will aide by bringing the blood down from your head and lobe areas and sending it to the feet.
Acupressure: Best Migraine Treatment
Sit comfortably in a chair, feet flat on the ground and take several deep slow breaths.
Pinch the soft tissue between your thumb and forefinger and hold for 20 seconds. Repeat several times on both hands.
Then take your thumb and place it in your mouth, the same side as the migraine. With your thumb locate the cheekbone inside the mouth and press the bone up and outwards. Hold for 20 seconds then repeat on the other side of the mouth.
Finally place both of your thumb on the upper palate inside your mouth. Your soft thumb tissue should rest against your upper palate and inside upper teeth. Gently pull outwards. Hold for 20 seconds. Repeat several times.
Finish by relaxing and taking several slow deep breaths and a glass of cold water to hydrate.
Step 3: Relaxation and Aromas
Aromatherapy: Best Migraine Treatment
Aromatherapy is an excellent prevention and relief during attack. Source quality essential oils for your aroma burner.
Peppermint and lavender are probably the best known essential oils for tension and migraine relief but equally good and recommended are rosemary, eucalyptus, sandalwood and basil.
Use a quality essential oil and burn at least once daily, preferably when you can sit and relax and focus on breathing.
I hope that this post brings you relief from the suffering of migraine. Used as a combination therapy I truly believe it is the best migraine treatment and natural remedy.
Below I have included links to the supplements and oils that I believe are the best, best value and the top quality. Always source the best quality to gain maximum impact.
I look forward to hearing your views and feedback. I also include links to other natural health remedies that may be of interest.
