I recently came across a new remedy for migraine relief. It involves putting tiny amounts of feverfew and ginger into a little pouch, and then putting it under your tongue.
But why go through the trouble? Skip the pouch, and just start taking feverfew as part of your daily supplement regimen.
Feverfew has been shown to help beat migraines before they even start. The trick is to treat it as a preventive and not as a treatment. Instead of taking it only when the pain hits, take it every day as a regular part of your supplement regimen.
Over time, feverfew can lessen both the number of headaches and their severity.
Although there hasn't been as much research on ginger and headaches, one study originally designed to test the spice on arthritis pain found that patients got some migraine relief in the deal as well.
The researchers behind that one say ginger acted like that theoretical aspirin -- blocking the inflammation that leads to pain.
It's easy enough to test that one yourself: Ginger is available as a supplement, a fresh root, and even in tea.
But when it comes to migraines, ginger and feverfew aren't your only options. They may not even be your best options.
Feverfew, ginger, glasses, magnets – believe it or not, these are only the beginning of your natural options. I've got everything else you need to know about migraine relief right here.
