How to have effective migraine treatment at home

Effective home remedies to help you cope with the pain


You don’t necessarily have to go to a doctor or pharmacist to treat your migraines. While the medication they give you may be the most effective and work faster, it can also come with some side effects and be a significant inconvenience for you. So here are some at-home remedies you can use to cope with your migraines.

Ice Pack

An ice pack is the obvious go-to remedy for migraines at home. You can either use a standard ice pack that’s made for numbing pain or wrap some ice cubes in a towel and apply it to the area where you feel the most pain. The cold should dull the pain after a few moments, and you may want to have another ice pack prepared for when the one you are using gets warm. It may also help to add some peppermint or lavender oils to the ice pack for a soothing touch.

Chamomile Tea

You can also try drinking some chamomile tea. This soothing beverage gets rid of inflammation and serves as an antispasmodic. German chamomile actually works best for treating migraines, though any chamomile tea will help. Some people add lemon juice or honey for some extra flavour and sweetness. These can also have some soothing properties, so they certainly won’t hurt your beverage’s healing power.

Apple Cider Vinegar

This beverage is used to treat all sorts of ailments, and you’ll find it recommended by home remedy gurus for everything from detoxification to migraines. It also helps to control your blood sugar, get rid of constipation and relieve pain in your bones. You probably don’t want to drink it straight, though. It helps to dilute it to make it taste more appealing. You can add about one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a cup of water and a dash of honey to sweeten. You can prevent some migraine pain by drinking this beverage throughout the day and not just when you start to get migraine symptoms.

Ginger Tea

Here’s another tea that may help relieve some of the migraine symptoms you experience. Ginger has been shown to block certain chemicals, known as prostaglandins. These chemicals are responsible for many muscle contractions in the body. By preventing them, you may not even feel your migraine after a while. Ginger tea can also reduce inflammation and regulate hormonal levels- all key factors in preventing and treating migraines. You’ll want to drink this tea as soon as you start to feel the symptoms of a migraine coming on; though, it also doesn’t hurt to drink it throughout the day as a preventative measure.
